This list is meant to be just a lot of fun but I'm wondering if it has potential to be competitive and if anyone has any ideas to make it better. Here goes:

WINDRIDER HOST:

1 Farseer Skyrunner w/ Spirit Stone - 130
1 Vyper w/ double Shuriken Cannons - 50
1 Warlock on Jetbike - 50
3 Windriders w/ Scatter Lasers - 81
3 Windriders w/ Scatter Lasers - 81
3 Windriders w/ Twin-Linked Shuriken Catapults - 51

ASPECT HOST:

5 Dark Reapers w/ Exarch w/ Starswarm Missiles (Exarch only) - 148
5 Warp Spiders w/ Exarch - 105
6 Swooping Hawks w/ Exarch - 106
5 Striking Scorpions w/ Exarch w/ Claw - 125
5 Striking Scorpions w/ Exarch w/ 2x Chainsabres - 105
5 Fire Dragons w/ Exarch w/ Firepike - 135

OUTCASTS:

5 Rangers - 60

DEDICATED TRANSPORT:

1 Wave Serpent w/ TL Scatter Laser and Shuriken Cannon - 125

LIVING LEGENDS:

1 Maugan Ra (goes with Harlequins) - 195

ALLIED ATTACHMENT - CAST OF PLAYERS

1 Death Jester w/ haywire grenades - 65
1 Shadowseer Psychic Mastery lvl 2, Mask of Secrets, Neuro Disruptor, Haywire Grenades- 115
1 Troupe Master w/ Haywire Grenades, Caress, Crescendo - 53
4 Players - 2 Regular, 2 w/ Kisses - 86

Would this list be competitive? How can I improve? Would this be strong against specific races? The Striking Scorpions and Rangers infiltrate and provide early distraction and board control. Meanwhile the Harlequins march up the table and Maugan Ra/ Death Jester fire away until they reach CC with target. Reapers provide cover fire and anchor. Scorpions, Rangers, Harlequins, Reapers force enemy out of position which allows my entire Windrider host to come off reserve and clean up. (except for farseer unit who will hide back and support with psychic abilities). Dragons hunt in the serpent and hawks and spiders deep strike harass.

Hi, I'd change the jetbikes to three squads with two scatter lasers and a shuriken catapult in each (so you don't have a pointless 'can only grab objectives' squad) and drop the rangers - in most games they just don't kill anywhere near enough.


That 60pts would enable you to change Maugan-Ra for Karandras. Karandras gives stealth iirc which means harlies in cover get a decent cover save and he'll be far more effective in CC when the harlies get there.
Either that or you could use the 60 pts to give the dark reapers star shot missiles. Krak missiles aren't great, but 5 of them at BS5 tends to hurt most units and makes the reapers so much more versatile :)

Jain zar is potentially better than Karandaras as she debuffs enemy stats and also stops overwatch. flamers are not friendly to our little clowns! She is also faster than the others so not slowing your units down. Inriams specter is a 5 point extra death jester that has shrouded. this confers to the unit.Dropping rangers in favour of more harlies might be worthwhile. upgrade to caresses is more useful than the kisses. you can assault and glance a vehicle to death pretty fast with 5 of those in a squad... especially with rerolls to hit from the divination primaris power.
