Default 1500pt web way assault, minimum vehicles

Howdy folks, been experimenting with various WWP lists since the new dex and well to cut a long story short it's friday, everything's frozen, there's nothing to do in work so i'm making army lists, problem is i'm limited on experience (both of 5th ed in general and DE inparticular) and i'm hoping some you new lovley folks can offer me abit of advice?

Anyway here's my list:

Baron Sathonyx - 105

2 Haemonculus - 180WWPs
Venom blades

14 Hellions - 249
helliarch w/t agoniser

8 wracks - 160
Raider w/t FF

8 wracks - 160
Raider w/t FF

6 Reavers - 202
2 blasters
2 cluster caltrops

6 Reavers - 202
2 blasters
2 cluster caltrops

Talos - 120
TL Heat lance
Chain flails

Talos - 120
TL Heat lance
Chain flails

TOTAL: 1498

I've tried for a few multi purpose units (the reavers and the talos). The 2 raiders will be the only things starting on the board, everything else will use the webway.

I'm shocked how tough it is to get anti tank into an army without ravagers or void ravens! i figured the reavers would be my best bet, move within 18" fire then assault move away and hopefully into cover.

The cluster caltrops are there to allow them to do some damage even when not shooting and will be used to target dev squads, long fangs, anything elite infantry units, eldar aspect warriors come to mind!

Opinions welcome! Thanks all.

I'm not sure you even need Portals, to be honest. The only things coming through them are Talos, and frankly I think it'd be a better idea if you swapped both Talos and the Portals for 2-3 Ravagers. Gives you enough firepower on turns 1-2 to disembark enough units to give your Wracks and Hellions some good targets.

Other than that, the list looks fine! Good luck in your games.

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.
