2500 Mech DC Stormraven Baal Goodness

I have played this list with some success. The DC loves to munch on unsuspecting units.

HQ
Astorath

Troops
10X DC with power weapons (Running with Astorath and DC dread in Stormraven)
DC Dread- magna grapple, heavy flamer and blood talons
10X Assault Troops- Removed JP 2X Melta Sarge with PF in LR Redeemer with Multi-melta
10X Assault Troops- Removed JP 2X Melta Sarge with PF in LR Redeemer with Multi-melta

Fast
3X Baal Predator- Flamestorm Cannon

Heavy
2X Vindi- Siege shield and Hunter killer
Storm Raven- Multi-melta Twin Las cannon.

Well guys this is it what do you all think? That is can you count, 8 tanks (including the Storm raven. And that's not gurd tanks either. LOL

Please level my Daemons I want them to grow up and be fierce.

I'll add my thoughts if nobody else will...

Astorath, meh. Psychic hood would be more use. In a DC Raven Lemartes makes more sense; cheaper, more killy once you pop a wound on him, not an IC. I'd grab a different HQ.

8 tanks at 2.5k - errr, nothing special.

Only 2 x 10 man scoring units, way too light. Sure, they're in LRs but since they're going to be getting stuck in what will hold objectives?

Land Raiders carrying nothing threatening - can be ignored until resources allow their destruction (especially since they're relatively slow compared to the rest of the army).

1 SR, carrying what? 920 points!?!? Wow, I'll down that AV12 fast skimmer first then, it doesn't even have Extra Armour. 10 x power weapons!? Come on, that 1 AV12 target is way to expensive. DC are meh at best, they overkill in most cases. Honour Guard would be better here, at least they can pop a tank then charge what's inside, heck at least you can control where they move &/or run! I like the DC Dread but he's not worth it if you waste a ton of points on DC.

Baals are solid.

Vindies are meh. Short range & probably going to have a lack of targets since you're running an assault list. Las Preds would probably be better.

Sorry if that all came across quite negative dude but I like to be honest.

Good luck!
Dallas

Thanks Dallas. It is ok I was looking for comments. I have since change this list. To where it is only 5 PW and a power fist. DC dread replaced with lib dread with lance and shield.

Really? I like the DC Dread in a Raven. Librarian Dreads have always failed for me. If you're dropping the DC Dread then I'd drop the DC all together - Honour Guard are better, but if you kept them then just run a single Thunder Hammer & 2 x Power Weapons, anything more is too many points & total overkill, just run the numbers & see how many wounds you stack up with Liturgies against various targets, there's only really, really tough things or things with 3+ inv saves that worry you... & remember, Astorath is pretty good in melee too.

If you play nothing but kill points then it is good. With all the DC getting FNP and FC. But if it is objectives. you need to table them to win or contest to draw. I do love my Death Co. but only ever run just the one squad. Never know what you will come up agianst. And need those other people to take care of things. Dont always have to go towards closest enemy model.
