Default 1850pt New Cadian detachments

Hey all so this is my attempt at making a list with the new Cadian detachments. The only way around our leadership problems with the restrictions on priests and commissars that I've found is Inquisitors and with the combination of power axes and rad grenades it should actually make the blobs scary.

Emperor's Shield Infantry Platoon
Platoon Command Squad 35pts
Vox caster.
Infantry Squad 1 85pts
Autocannon, flamer, melta bomb, power axe.
Infantry Squad 2 85pts
Autocannon, flamer, melta bomb, power axe.
Infantry Squad 3 85pts
Autocannon, flamer, melta bomb, power axe.
Infantry Squad 4 70pts
Autocannon, flamer, melta bomb.
Infantry Squad 5 75pts
Autocannon, flamer, melta bomb, vox caster.
Scout Sentinel 40pts
Autocannon.
475pts

Emperor's Shield Infantry Platoon
Platoon Command Squad 35pts
Vox caster.
Infantry Squad 1 85pts

Basilisk Battery (2) 250pts
Wyvern Battery (2) 130pts
Manticore 170pts

It does, but that's a blob you want to remain mobile. I've done this (albeit with a 30 man blob) time and time again and every time I put autocannons in with them I regretted it. I also play mine with krak grenades for all instead of melta bombs on the sergeants, but that's because I'm the one who usually charges in with AV13 Walkers (obvs when I'm not playing Guard). Keep in mind though, in any wargear instance, that most of your unit will not be getting to attack each phase. Only models within 2" of an engaged model from their unit gets their attacks, so keep those axes handy (also why I prefer krak, more chances to attack and typically enough dice for a wreck even on 6's to glance). The servo-skulls likely won't help your barrage weapons backfield, but hey. Maybe you face someone that advances and doesn't take them out handily.

I would maybe make one of the blobs all flamers and axes, and the other lascannons (alternately, heavy weapon team squads?). None of your artillery can Explode! vehicles since its all AP3 or worse. I would also drop anything I could to make both Inquisitors Psykers so they can cast Prescience on their blobs and maybe even get that swanky 4+ invuln power. Alternately (and if you want to spend more points) I would get Primaris Psykers (with axes, of course) for the same thing. 60 points to get the Inqs up or 100 for two Primaris dudes.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

2 blobs aren't super viable at 1850pts, especially at 50-man with all the trimmings. I'd bring a Combined Arms plus the artillery to make the blobs more manageable and get the extra CCS in there. Also, Inquisitors are pretty much strictly inferior to Librarians in this edition.

COMBINED ARMS DETACHMENT
HQ
Commissar Yarrick
Priest
Priest

TROOPS
Infantry Platoon
Platoon Command Squad
Infantry Squad with Lascannon
Infantry Squad with Lascannon
Infantry Squad with Lascannon and Sergeant with Power Axe
Infantry Squad with Lascannon and Sergeant with Power Axe

Infantry Platoon
Platoon Command Squad
Infantry Squad with Lascannon
Infantry Squad with Lascannon
Infantry Squad with Lascannon and Sergeant with Power Axe
Infantry Squad with Lascannon and Sergeant with Power Axe

FAST ATTACK
Vulture Gunship with Twin-Linked Punisher Cannons

LIBRARIUS CONCLAVE
Chapter Tactics: White Scars
Librarian with Mastery Level 2, Force Axe and the Hunter's Eye
Librarian with Mastery Level 2 and Force Axe
Librarian with Force Axe

EMPEROR'S WRATH ARTILLERY COMPANY
Company Command Squad with Volkov's Cane in Chimera
Basilisk
Basilisk
Manticore

It's a tonne of Ignores Cover firepower. Need I say more?

EDIT: Shit, I forgot Priests! They're amazing guys already, but combined with a White Scars Librarius they're really nasty - Zealot and Hit and Run go together like cheese and toast.

EDIT LE DEUX: Realised I had Vox-Casters on the Infantry Squads. And nowhere else. Schoolboy error, replaced with Volkov's Cane on the EWAC Command Squad for near-guaranteed Ignores Cover on one of the Basilisks/Manticore as required.

midnight's list is a clusterfuck of pain to face...only an alpha strike droppod armycould waste you easily. maybe a clever dark eldar force. any other army is going to sweat and toil.
