Intresting, but we need to go deeper.

I place Maugan in the annex that houses the Krakstorm Missile Launcher. Its range is 12-72 and is a Str 8 Ap3 ordanance barrage.

Ra twin links it with his BS7, making sure it always hits, and uses fast shot to turn it into a multiple barrage weapon. And for pesky units that have good cover saves he uses Crack Shot to deny any saves and to make sure all wounds stick. He also technically has Night Vision and thus would allow the Launcher to bypass night fighting.

As you can prob tell he will tear a new asshole into any squad he shoots at or vehicle parking lot. Often times he can wreck 2+ vehicles with a multi barrage ordanace hit.

He also has a 2+ armor so can survive the impact hits when people start shooting the annex.

When/if the annex is deatroyed he wanders around killing things or if i am somehow deaperate performs counter charge for me.

Edit: kramstorm is a large blast
Can you tell me where both the Fire Dragon squads go and why?

The Eldar, more than any other army, should not only look at the output of each unit individually, but the synergy of multiple units together and their role in the force as a whole. - Fable
