HQ
4x Haemonculus w/power axe and liquifier Gun

Elites
2x Grotesques
-1xGrotesque
-1xGrotesque w/liquifier gun
-1xAberation w/venom blade
Raider w/dark lance, enchanced aethersails and shock prow

Troops
Wracks
-8 wracks
-2 wracks w/liquifier gun
-Raider w/dark lance, enchanced aethersails and shock prow

Wracks
-2 wracks
-1 acothyst with hexrifle
-Raider w/dark lance, enchanced aethersails and shock prow

Tactics:
the small unit of wracks wil hide and the acothyst will take pot shots and interesting targets. Their main objective is to sit on an objective in the end of the game. Hopefully being ignores by the enemy.

The three big units will rush the enemy, 30''+2d6'' will get them right infront of the enemy turn 1 and give them a nice 4+ cover save.

Shock prows are included for tank shock shenanigans.

I will be facing a IG gunline tomorrow. The list is at 995 pts at the moment, any changes you would recommend? I think i will Exchange one of the liquifier guns for the shattershard.

Thoughts and comments are highly appreciated.

Looks pretty solid to me, not a lot to say really although I'm not too keen on the poweraxes myself. The shattershard change would be worthwhile as I think its much more reliable despite its one use only.

Let us know how the game goes bud!

+1 for the shattershard!
Big recommendation from me is either drop a wrack from the bigger group to fit in a haemy (the LG is replaced by the one the haemy carries) or deploy them out of the Raider together to ensure the big wrack group starts with 2 pain tokens. The Furious Charge boost is more than worth it in my experience. With FC, I'd pit 10 wracks against a space marine squad any day of the week, never mind guardsmen.
The other thing I've learned is if you have the opportunity to hang back and shoot with the lances before charging (only if you can do it without having your boats blown up, mind you), that turn of AT shooting can sometimes make a huge difference.

I guess my only question is where are the haemys going? 2 each with the grots?

The list itself looks like fun, and I'm sorely tempted to try a variation. I like the power axes, though I've only used venom blades. I second the vote to hear about the game!

You can only have one Liquifier Gun per 5 Wracks, so you will need to drop this to one.

Other than that, I just can't see this list dealing with any kind of armour at all, sure you have some raiders but they will go down first turn, 4+ cover or not you will have a gunline focussing on three vehicles AV10, your opponent will not care less about your two squads at the back until he destroys the rest. But I wouldnt feel confident in them surviving long enough to see out the game regardless.

Grots will take some beating and so somethign will probably see combat, but I would be worried that what does make it will not be enough.

ST

EDIT: See that you actually mean 8 plain wracks and 2 with LGs, the way it is written is somewhat confusing. Regardless the rest of the post still stands.

I took the shattershard on one homonculus. I put two homonculi in each unit of grots for the fearless buff, don't wont to be failing those leadership 8 tests.

I have written a battle report for those of you interested:
