    1000 pts and no vehicles and no guardians challenge

    For fluff purposes, I am making a small force. Everyone is based with a very detailed hive city theme. 1000 points. And eventually another of 1500, but don't worry about that.

    ...

    It cannot have vehicles or any type of skimmer. It cannot have war walkers. It cannot have guardians or storm guardians. It cannot have the avatar.

    It must have AT LEAST two squids of rangers/pathfinders. It must have warp spiders.

    I personally dislike striking scorpions, for style-related reasons. Same with banshees.

    I like the look of swooping hawks, but I know the general consensus is that they are a condition-specific unit.

    ...

    I know this is very limiting, and probably very awkward, but that's what makes it interesting.

    Suggestions?

    Take a look at this footslogging list that I have made and make all the changes you find necessary.

    All the changes I find necessary is the reason I've posted this question.

    After all, that list doesn't really fit the challenge, now, does it? There are no rangers/pathfinders, and the troops are made up entirely of guardians. There's an avatar in the HQ and scorpions in elites. Your list is probably fine for you, but it's not going to work for me. "Changing that list as necessary" involves so many swaps of units that aren't on it that you might as well start from scratch...

    What I was trying to say is that you should have done all the neccessary changes.For instance swap Guardians with Rangers.Anyway I think that I can do this for you but I warn you that this kind of list will struggle against...anyone

    HQ

    Autach/Warp Jump Generator/Fusion Gun/PW/Mandiblasters 125

    Troops

    5 Rangers 95
    5 Rangers 95
    5 Rangers 95

    Fast Attack

    5 Warp Spiders/Exarch/Dual Spinners/Power Blades 137 (Autarch goes here)
    5 Warp Spiders/Exarch/Dual Spinners/Power Blades 137

    Heavy Support

    Wraithlord/Dual Flamers/EML/Bright lance 155
    Wraithlord/Dual Flamers/EML/Bright lance 155

    Ok I think that is all I can do. The Wraithlords are equiped with anti-tank weapons to deal with tanks.They are T8 and in 1000 pts games there are little S8 or higher weapons. Rangers are mainly for objective grabbing as I don't think it's likely to cause any serious damage. They key to the list are the Spiders with the Autach. If played well you will be able to deal with MEQ as both squads have PW and the Autach is a real pain cause when he charges his dish out 5 WS6 PW attacks even with S3 he will kill a handfull of SM.In addition he has a Fusion Gun just in case.

    Good luck.

    That one seems pretty good... perhaps. I wonder, though, since non of the elites are filled, why not reduce the number of wraithguards slightly... a downsize from 10 to 7 (still a sizeable force) would free up 105 points, with which I could take on a reasonably sized unit of some other type for either added versatility or firepower... What do you think?
