I tested Hades Class Heavy Cruisers today and found that a group of 4 of them working together focussing their lances could easily crush a cruiser in one turn and a battleship in one or two turns maximum. I couldn't quite cram 4 Hades into the list as you need twice the amount of cruisers, but I have quite a lot of long range forward lances which I think would kick most armies.
3 Hades class heavy cruisers, one with warmaster
6 Murder class cruisers
2 slaughter class cruisers
You might get into serious trouble if you face lots of attack craft...on the other hand, you cna supress them by keeping them braced. If you manage to do this you'll beat them utterly, but it won't be easy.
Personally i don't field any murders - i always use hades if possible, and i fill the rest of the points with devastations, carnages and slaughters, and a repulsive.
