So I saw a guy at my FLGS playing a game with his Mechanicum army against Tau. Its the only 30K army I've ever been interested in and I asked him to play a game so I can see how they do. I said I'd use my Cult Mech army against him. He has a Warhound so I told him to build a 2500 point list with the titan and I'd run my lancer.

Here are the Cult Models I have:
2 Dominus
12 Kataphron Destroyers/Breachers (all options magnetized)
8 Kastelan Robots (magnetized)
4 Datasmiths
Lancer

Here is the list I want to use:

Battle Congregation
HQ
Dominus w/ Scryerskull Perspicatus, Volkite Blaster, and Macroscrubber

TROOP
3 Kataphron Destroyers w/ Heavy Grav and Phosphor Blaster
3 Kataphron Destroyers w/ Heavy Grav and Phosphor Blaster
4 Kataphron Destroyers w/ Plasma Culverin and Phosphor Blaster

HEAVY SUPPORT
Robot Maniple:
Datasmith
Robot w/ TL Heavy Phosphor Blaster and Heavy Phosphor Blaster
Robot w/ Power Fists and Heavy Phosphor Blaster

Robot Maniple:
Datasmith
Robot w/ TL Heavy Phosphor Blaster and Heavy Phosphor Blaster
Robot w/ Power Fists and Heavy Phosphor Blaster

Cohort Cybernetica
Dominus w/ Autocaduceus, Erradication Ray, and Macroscrubber

Robot Maniple:
Datasmith w/ Raiment of Technomartyr
Robot w/ TL Heavy Phosphor Blaster and Heavy Phosphor Blaster
Robot w/ Power Fists and Heavy Phosphor Blaster

Robot Maniple:
Datasmith
Robot w/ TL Heavy Phosphor Blaster and Heavy Phosphor Blaster
Robot w/ Power Fists and Heavy Phosphor Blaster

LOW
Cerastus Knight-Lancer

This army comes out to exactly 2500 points. This would only be the 4th time I've used my Cult Mech. Does this look good against a Warhound and a Mechanicum army full of MCs, maybe a tank, and some Myrmidon? Any comments would be appreciated. Thank you.

Man this looks awesome. Got a project log or army shot of this list?

Can't really comment, I've never seen 30k Mechanicum in play. You have a super heavy hitting list there though, so I think you'll have a good chance at taking down the titan at least.

Honestly its a bit hard to gauge without knowing the 30k list, is it Cybernetica or Taghmata? Going pure Thallax and Castelax or will there be either or the Krios Battle Tank varients or the Tiaros transport probably carrying Myrmydons.

Im not familiar witht he Titan or the Knight myself, so im just going to take them out of the equation. But on the whole I like your list. However because you have a shed load of Phosphor id drop the CAD to be honest and switch it out for an Elimination Maniple and a Holy Requisitionor formation. Both your Destroyers and Castelans in the CaD are kitted with Phosphor anyway so mayas well get the free bonus from 'Elimination Volley' and since you magnetised switch a Destroyer squad into a Breacher squad for the Holy Requistionor formation. Think the points would drop a little less than 2.5k off the top of my head but its a suggestion.

I did the Battle congregation to get Stealth+shrouded cannicle twice in the game. I use it the first two turns to give me time to get my robot formation close enough to charge and keep enough of my destroyers alive to do some serious damage. And with the amount of robots im running it wouldnt make since not to run the cohort. I'm not a fan of either of the two formations that you mentioned. And I do not like breachers at all, honestly.

Yeah I'm saying keep the cohort ditch the cad. Cohort, Holy Requisition and Elimination plus your Knight, done.
