    The biggest weakness I see to this list is that it relies almost exclusively on STR 7, AP - shooting. While you could stunlock vehicles all day long, I see very little in this list that can reliably destroy them. Obviously, the scarabs munching on armor are supposed to compensate for that, but a few well placed blast templates or flamers could bring that to a screaming halt. The list also relies on the scarabs getting into assault in the first place, which the solar pulses obviously help with, but can't be completely relied upon. The low unit numbers for the troops is also worrisome. At only 5 man squads, it's not that hard to wipe them out and deny you your Reanimation rolls. Night Scythes lack Quantum Shielding and so are much more vulnerable than, say, Ghost Arks. Turboboosting might help, but then you're still risking destruction on a 4+ on the damage table. I'm not convinced this list is as broken as you think.

    Yeah, I've done a bunch of stuff like that. For example only Warriors, Royal Court, Overlords, and special ICs can embark on Ghost Arks. Lychguard and Immortals can't even hijack a ride.

    That and wraiths don't have Reanimation Protocols.

    Or if you have the Stormlord and use a solar pulse in your turn, the lightning strikes don't occur as night-fight is not in effect.

    .....and a bunch of other stuff.

    Of course they can. You simply have to take a Ghost Ark for Warriors, disembark them and then embark the Lychguard in it. They same thing with Ork Burna Boyz and Trukks.

    That and wraiths don't have Reanimation Protocols.

    Yeah, I noted that too.

    Or if you have the Stormlord and use a solar pulse in your turn, the lightning strikes don't occur as night-fight is not in effect.

    Why is that?

    I also noted the thing about destro lords and royal courts.

    To Nightbringer: Read the rules on the Ghost Ark. It specifically states only Necron Warriors, Lords, Crypteks, Overlords, and Chatacters may embark on a ghost ark. Lychguard and Immortals may never embark on one.

    To both of the above: Lightning Strikes due to Lord of the Storm only happen if night-fighting is in effect. If you use a solar-pulse in your turn to negate night-fighting (so your army can shoot) the lightning strikes can't happen as the night-fight is not in effect.
