    1500pt Mech (2nd try)

    Hey all, I'm currently waiting on 3 waveserpents and a fire prism in the mail. This is good news as it means I have 4 real Serpents, 2 Falcons to convert to prisms, and a real prism. This allows me to make the kind of list I've been wanting to make for a while now.

    95pts Farseer (Doom, Runes of Warding) [rides with DA's 1]

    80pts Farseer (Doom) [rides with DA's 2]

    145pts 10 Dire Avengers (Exarch, Double Shuri., Bladestorm)

    130pts Waveserpent (EMLs, Spirit Stones)

    145pts 10 Dire Avengers (Exarch, Double Shuri., Bladestorm)

    130pts Waveserpent (EMLs, Spirit Stones)

    96ps 6 Fire Dragons

    120pts Waveserpent (Shuri. Cannon, TL Shuri. Cannons, Spirit Stones)

    168pts 8 Striking Scorpions (Exarch, Shadowstrike)

    125pts Fire Prism (Spirit Stones)

    125pts Fire Prism (Spirit Stones)

    125pts Fire Prism (Spirit Stones)

    Total: 1496
    Models: 42
    Percentages (HQ/Troops/Elite/Fast/Heavy): 11.6%/37.6%/25.7%/0/25.1%

    What do you think?? My original 1500pt list had Pathfinders and Spiders instead of Fire Prisms. The Spiders did fine and the Pathfinders rocked against the large tyranids I faced. The spiders where unpredictable though and Pathfinders too static. Also, I got rocked by a Tau player because I didn't have long-ranged power. Lastly, I want a rock-hard competetive list from which I can change things for fun games.

    Thanks in advance.

    First off, I think your DA squads are 152 points, not 145. Unfortunately that puts you over the point limit. Spirit stones might not be necessary on your prisms, since stunned and shaken both remove your ability to shoot (which is of course the point). I guess that's the same argument against using holo-fields on them. Finally I don't think you need the chin shuriken cannon on the Dragons' serpent, since odds are you'll always be moving 12" or more with it. Generally the only vehicle I take that upgrade on is Falcons.

    Other than that I'd say you look to be in pretty good shape. I'd consider buying Runes for your second farseer. Yeah it might be excessive, but imagine the look on your opponent's face when he finds he needs to kill both your farseers before he can safely cast lash of submission.

    Thanks Der_Kaiser, I'm using an excel spreadsheet I made myself and some of the stuff is still glitchy. If I drop the squads of DA to 9 then I'm good. Since these are my only scoring units I suppose that can be a problem. I hesitate to drop the spirit stones on the Fire Prism because then I don't get to potentially hide it behind cover after it's been shaken...I guess spirit stones are the lesser loss. If the DA's are indeed 152 (I don't have my book handy) then that's 10 points to make up (the list above is 1496). Removing the under-slung Shuri. cannon is enough!

    95pts Farseer (Doom, Runes of Warding) [rides with DA's 1]

    80pts Farseer (Doom) [rides with DA's 2]

    152pts 10 Dire Avengers (Exarch, Double Shuri., Bladestorm)

    130pts Waveserpent (EMLs, Spirit Stones)

    152pts 10 Dire Avengers (Exarch, Double Shuri., Bladestorm)

    130pts Waveserpent (EMLs, Spirit Stones)

    96ps 6 Fire Dragons

    110pts Waveserpent ( TL Shuri. Cannons, Spirit Stones)

    168pts 8 Striking Scorpions (Exarch, Shadowstrike)

    125pts Fire Prism (Spirit Stones)

    125pts Fire Prism (Spirit Stones)

    125pts Fire Prism (Spirit Stones)
