Autarch:115ps
Scorp chainsword, Fusin Gun, Swooping hawks wings,Mandiblaster.

Farseer: 215pts

Exarch - Biting Blade,Stalker

Striking Scorpions x9: 166pts
Exarch - Biting Blade,Stalker

Harlequin Trupe x9: 242pts
Troupe Master-Kiss, Shadowseer-Fusin pistol, Kiss,Death Jester, Harlequinsx6 - 4x kiss

Troops:
Dire Avengers x10: 152pts

As I have never played CoD before, any thoughts on this army would be appreciated.

Okay, here we go!

-Drop the Warlocks, not too effective.
-Take a Claw on the Scorps, not a Biting Blade.
-Drop the Fusion Pistol in the Harlies
-Take more Hawks and Spiders

That's about it, really.

I like the biting blade cause you can get the Str up from getting hits and it costs less than the claw, also attacks in Init order.
Cant take more Hawks or Spiders, I just picked up one box this weekend past so I only have 6 hawks and 5 spiders currently this is a testing them game
I know, Warlocks are not that useful but was not sure what else to put those points into, I have never played CoD so I am not sure how much use a skimmer would be, perhaps a Falcon or some Vipers
And the same goes for the fusion on the harlies, just had points and stuck em there.

Though I've never played CoD before I think a skimmer would work well because it can't be seen as well and can jump right over buildings with no dangerous terrain tests.

- think about dropping the harlequins, they usally never get there points back(usally0)
-with these points, buy a unit of shining spears with an exarch with skilled rider?
-i agree about the biting blade>scorpains claw, espically with guide( effects closecombat??,,dont have book on me atm)strength 6? and I1? pff

Guide I beleve only works for shooting, I could be wrong, it may be for rolls to hit in general. I usualy use Doom for my wounds. Most of the time with my Exarch I end up with Str7 attacks from Bitingblade. That works just fine for me when you stack it with Doom.

The problem about the Biting Blade is it allows armour saves. I think Harlies would be good because you can just move them through terrain quickly and will often get a better save.
