    Tell us bat reps and we can comment Seems a solid list with only 3 troops. This is a weakness in a tournament based on objectives missions. Dunno why you put EML on a dragons serpent from tactical point of view.

    In the end BAT REPS

    Another thing you could've done would be this:

    Farseer
    Doom, RoWitness/Warding

    Farseer
    Doom, RoWitness

    Dire Avengers x5
    Wave Serpent
    EML, Stones

    Dire Avengers x5
    Wave Serpent
    EML, Stones

    Dire Avengers x5
    Wave Serpent
    EML, Stones

    Fire Dragons x5
    Wave Serpent
    EML, Stones

    Fire Dragons x5
    Wave Serpent
    EML, Stones

    Fire Prism
    Fire Prism
    Fire Prism

    1500 on the nose.

    Basically with this list, you use the Serpents as Battle Tanks and clean up with the Prisms. Anything bigger you use the Dragons for. If you really wanted, you could drop a squad of dragons and both seers for another unit of avengers and Eldrad. For that I would put him with the dragons and trade in the stones for star engines and keep it fortuned.

    @niraco EML plasma shots are defensive weapons and are a fantastic upgrade for Serpents. There are also certain times when you don't have to risk your dragons and can just take a few shots with a bunch of TL S8 shots from the various EMLs around the board then kill the candy inside with some prism fire.

    Battle reports are definitely coming. I've got my camera charged and and memory card emptied. No I just have to remember to use the damn thing every turn.

    That will make sense if it had a shuriken cannon upgrade (the defensive weapon statement). In rest the EML ussualy does nothing that a scatter laser cannot (except the pining stuff) for a close range tank (no matter that you want to keep dragons inside, you still have to close up with this serpent). For me more shots of S6> 1 shot of S8 or small blast of S4

    I'm surprised you do well with 3x fireprisms. Do they actually earn their points back?

    Sometimes. With range 60" I can get a few turns of relative safety in most cases. Its always better when the enemy isn't mechanized (just Tyranids basically), but they pop tanks well too. The only game they didn't do that well it was bad luck (6 turns of shooting EML's and Prisms at a Vendetta and hitting only to not pen. armour) and they distracted a lot of lascannon shots from my Serpents. The last one just died turn 7 and would have contested my objective if the game had ended earlier. I love my prisms. Even just one solid combined shot on a Space Marine squad makes back the points of one Prism.

    Maybe. A valid alternative is to drop one fireprism and take two vypers with EMLs for a similar points cost but you'd need specific reasons to do so.. which just don't exist in our 4th edition codex.
