Planning to stick seer and the 5 avengers in falcon and guide it.
All input is welcome
I'll wade in with my oar here... Not that it's worth much.
If you're planning to put 5 DAs and Farseer in a serpent, you probably could save the points on upgrading for 3 weapons. You'll probably be moving 12 and shooting only one weapon, so keep scatter laser and sack of the extra 10 points for cannon.
Alternatively, Ask if you can proxy the Falcon as a serpent and save yourself the points. Serpent + Stones + T-L Cannons is 110 points. With the 30 ish points you've saved you could kit out another 2 DAs in the with the Seer.
Alternatively (yet again), I might put the Farseer with the large DA unit, and doom, instead of guide on the bladestorm, and use the other Dire Avengers as objective grabbers. Even with guide, you're not going to cause uber devastation with 5 DAs, unless they have really poor armour saves, and and really poor toughness values. It's best, I find, to assume you're going to play space marines, and kit out your approach for that. If you can kill T4 you can sure as hell deal with T3.
Does that help?
Tourney is now over so it didnt help for that. Thanks a lot for the input anyway though!
I played 3 games with the list versus, NIds, BTs and Deamons as expected. Lost to the nids beat the other two for a good second place playing one each of the preliminary ardboyz scenarios. The hiveguards are a real pain and i misjudged the distance one turn which cost me 2 boats in an instant incl prism
The guided falcon gunboat fared really well i think although its ofc risky to stay at combatspeed to fire more guns, it also completly won me one of the games by zooming in with the avengers inside holding the middle objective. Ill probably use 2 prisms and 3 serpents next time around though.
