Only thing i can suggest as a weakness is that you have a lack of mobility- you only have one squad that can get to the other board edge and capture objectives

but apart from that its not a bad list at all, was just wondering why the destructor on the warlock?

A little bit annoyed to come back to HO and find I've lost close to 200 rep.....

I was wondering why destructor when I read it too. I feel like you might get more out of Morale check re-rolls, but I don't know if you have the points for it. Not really any room for tweaking there. Was destructor just a points filler?

Yeah, I think Embolden would be a better fit.
Also, you could drop the Cannon on the Serpent, drop the Exarch, replacing him with a regular Avenger, replace Destructor with Embolden...then you can afford...wait for it...a Shadow Weaver! Admittedly, it's a better idea than it sounds, but I can't say it'd be an improvement. The shock value would certainly be fun though.

I don't really like the list to be honest.

But thats only because its not my style of play.

HighKingE's idea of a Shadow weaver may sound a little strange...but, it could guard a flank, and it does pin quite effectively, ignores LoS...and if your playing orks or guard, it makes quite a nice trump card.

The only shock value would be for the GW staff you are buying it off

"Holy crap! call HQ, we have finally sold one of those frickin' support weapons!! "

of course i mainly detest it because its crewed by an artist and a poet, rather than some ACTUAL SOLDIERS

The orginal list that I've played with for a year now had a scatter laser and a warlock w/embolden. I do agree that embolden would be the superior choice. I was actually convinced by a compelling debate that Destructor would add more umpph! against Orks.

lI forget what Shadow Weaver does. Is that the one that fire's in a straight line damaging everything from point A to B? This would be fun in objective scenarios. Unfortunately my gaming store doesnt carry a single Heavy Support Weapon. You have to ask for them to be specialy ordered at the counter. Last time I asked for a D-Cannon I was talked down.

Here's the orginal list that has won me so many games. The new above proposed list is based on theory and advice from friends.

HQ - 155

The Avatar of Khaine - 155

Dire Avengers x 9 - 140
-Exarch w/Extra Avenger Shuriken Catapult, & Bladestorm

Wave Serpent - 120

-Shuriken Cannon
-Spirit Stones


Guardians x 10 - 131
-Warlock w/Embolden, & Spirit Seer
-Scatter Laser


Pathfinders x 6 - 144

Heavy - 310

Wraith Lord - 155
-Bright Lance
-Eldar Missle Launcher
-Flamer x 2

Put it this way - if the Orks are in Template range of the Guardians, they're already dead.

The weapon you're thinking of is the Vibro Cannon, something that has been seriously nerfed since it's original incarnation

The Shadow Weaver is Heavy 1 Blast, Barrage, 48" range, and S6 with -AP. It's death to Orks and even Guard, but most armies with a 4+ or better shrug it off.
Then again, the same can be said of Bladestorm, and at least a Shadow Weaver can fire every turn...
