    [1500] Biel-tan, Ulthwe style

    i want to try my cc biel-tan army again but i'm fed up with my banshees constantly failing me so i want to try a psychic based one.

    here's my train of thought.
    Waveserpents are crap and can't be relied to get banshees into cc.
    falcons are really resilient and can transport
    small banshee squads don't work
    scorpions do fine with infiltrate
    whats the most dangerous thing that can fit into a falcon?
    =fortuned farseer and bodyguard

    so here's the list i want to try.

    1500 points
    HQ
    -farseer with shuriken pistol, witchblade and fortune
    --5 warlocks with witchblades and pistols 1 enhance, 1 embolden @236 points
    -seer group as above @236
    Elites
    -2 starcannon vypers (separate units) @130
    troops
    -9 scorpions +1 exarch with stealth and claw@207
    -8 warp spiders@176
    heavy support
    -falcon with starcannon, holofield, spirit stone combo @190
    -falcon as above @190
    -brightlance wraithlord @120

    the seers can ride around in falcons or just walk up the field
    how do you think it would do would do?
    i know its unbalanced but its just something different to try.

    Quite intresting list.

    But what of the Wraithlord? He'll totally linger behind, perhaps change him into something faster? Take him away for the moment.
    Also, the Seer squads should not have that many Witchblades. let two of the warlocks in each squad have a CCW instead and you will save 56 pts and retract nothing from your fortitude. Some warlocks will die, so let them be cheap.

    Now you have saved 176 points. Since you didn't have excactly 1500 you now have 191 pts left to spend. Maybe another Falcon?

    I can follow your reasoning. Waveserpents are too expensive as it stands right now. However, they do serve the purpose of delivering a squad quickly to the front line.

    so here's the list i want to try.

    1500 points
    HQ
    -farseer with shuriken pistol, witchblade and fortune
    --5 warlocks with witchblades and pistols 1 enhance, 1 embolden @236 points

    -brightlance wraithlord @120

    how do you think it would do would do?
    If the mission does not allow infiltrate you will have a part of your army (scorpions and wraithlord) that are much, much slower than the rest of your force, and even with infiltrate your wraithlord will trail behind. Swap him out for another group of warp spiders and give your army a lot of extra speed.
