Ok, so I have been playtesting some lists, and I think I am starting to become inflexible with my list building. I have never before done this, but I was wondering if some people could help me develop some different sorts of lists to help me get some new ideas in my head.
I have the following models available to me at this time.
10 Immortals with Tesla Carbines
12 Scarab Bases
2 Annihilation Barges
1 Annihilation/Command Barge (can be either)
1 Ghost/Doomsday Ark (unassembled so far so can go either way).
I'm trying to aim for 1,500 pt lists and with the exception of my Imotekh led list all of them seem to be very similar. The problem with my Imotekh list is I have neither the wraiths or the spyders that it calls for.

This is a difficult task. I'd need to know what habits you've been getting yourself into, otherwise chances are I'd build a similar list. With so few models (actually, it's quite a collection but you're limited in FOC choices), it may be difficult to build anything but what you've been running.
Also, I'm not sure if it's possible or not, but consider pinning the weapons on your third Annihilation Barge with magnets, so they can be removed and used as a Command Barge at your whim. I don't know if you can retrofit one of your other Annihilation Barges to do the same, but I always advocate getting the most flexibility out of your models for the least amount of cost. I've even been considering doing this with Ghost / Doomsday Arks, though I'd have to get my hands on the box first to see how extensive a project that would be..
At any rate, I'd be happy to try to help if I knew more of what you were looking for. I haven't been able to play yet, so I'm pretty sure all of my ideas are good on paper but none have been tested on the tabletop yet.
I've recently become a fan of this thing called Dubstep. And you should too.

I think the best way to get ideas is to watch battle reports. Youtube and miniwargaming.com are the two places I watch them. Good way to get ideas and see how some people run their units. Just a thought.
But from what you have is pretty much what I plan on eventually getting, plus the lychguard and spyders. But I was going to do warscythes/res orb on my lords and stick them in my squads. And have about 2 ghost arcs and as many annihilation barges as possible, because they are just amazing.
Basically you could just shoot your opponent to death, have a bunch of scarabs, and some spyders to make more scarabs, and have them eat away their tanks. And the rest of your army will just blow them up with a bunch of shots. And with everyone RAP on a 4+, and warriors being repaired by the arcs, its going to be a challenge for your opponent to kill your guys.
Remember, scarabs are also very good at tying up most squads in close combat. And lychguards with shields are good counter assault units. Oh and Mind-shackle scarabs on your overlord (and lord if they can get them) are a must!

if you go on youtube there is a video of a magnetized ghost ark/ doomsday ark, it needed a lot of magnets but he completed what you guys are talking about trying
The third barge is already made to be either annihilation or command. Ill probably do the same with the unassembled ghost ark kit since im not a huge fan of the underslung cannon on the doomsday ark anyways.
I guess my main issue right now is the difference between the competitive list I want to play has to wait until wraiths and spyders get models. I hate proxying and the only decent spyder conversion I have ran across involves buying and hacking apart destroyers, and for that cost I would just wait to buy the actual model...
I'm going to try to post a list that is as close to my goal as possible until I can get wraiths and spyders....
