Hello Heresy land!

So a while ago I posted up a doubles lists which teamed my wolves up with some ad mech. Well, my friend who was just starting up the ad mech decided he had very little time and money to start up the hobby properly.

So muggins here decided to help him out and now I have a fair sized army of Skitarri and cult mechanicus (some models I may have bought on top of his army...you know...for...err...balance...oh who am I kidding, shiny model syndrome!)

Seen an escalation tournament I like the look of, where each list builds on the previous and so have decided to give my newfound army a whirl (with some support from my space wolves of course). The stipulation of the tournament is that whatever is in the previous list must be included, you can add models and upgrades BUT you can't take them away (so you can't drop a 10 man squad into two 5 man squads).

Here is what I've got for each, would love some feedback:

1000pts List
Skitarii – Skitarii maniple – 825pts
Troops – 360pts
Vanguard (x10)
-Arc rifles (x2)
-Arc Pistol
-Omnispex

Rangers (x10)
-Transuranic arquebus (x3)
-Omnispex

Elites – 345pts
Sicarian Ruststalkers (x5)
-Transonic razors and chord claws

Sicarian Infiltrators (x5)
-Flechette blasters and taser goads

Heavy Support – 120pts
Onager Dunecrawler (x1)
-Cognis Heavy stubber
-Neutron laser and cognis heavy stubber

Space Wolves – Company of the great wolf – 165pts
HQ – 110pts
Rune priest
-Mastery Level 2
-Bike
-Melta bomb

Elites – 20pts
Servitor (x1)

Servitor (x1)

Fast attack – 3*pts
Drop pod

Idea here is vanguard in the drop pod, bringing the haywire to bear on any vehicle which looks nasty.
Rune priest with the ruststalkers, still deciding whether to go divination or biomancy. Ruststakers and infiltrators move up the board as fast as their little robot legs will carry them.
Rangers create a bubble wrap around the dune crawler. Either hide in a corner if up against an alpha strike list or move up slowly in any cover they can find against a gun line.
Servitors hide on home objectives.

1500pts List
Skitarii – Skitarii maniple – 840pts
Troops – 360pts
Vanguard (x10)
-Arc rifles (x2)
-Arc Pistol
-Omnispex

Rangers (x10)
-Transuranic arquebus (x3)
-Omnispex

Elites – 360pts
Sicarian Ruststalkers (x5)
-Conversion field
-Transonic razors and chord claws (free)

Sicarian Infiltrators (x5)
-Refractor field
-Flechette blasters and taser goads (free)

Heavy Support – 120pts
Onager Dunecrawler (x1)
-Cognis Heavy stubber
-Neutron laser and cognis heavy stubber

Space Wolves – Company of the great wolf – 400pts
HQ – 110pts
Rune priest
-Mastery level 2
-Bike
-Melta bomb

Elites – 20pts
Servitor (x1)

Servitor (x1)

Fast Attack – 270pts
Stormwolf
-Twinlinked multi-melta

Drop pod

Cult Mechanicus – Allied detachment – 260pts
HQ – 110pts
Tech-priest Dominus
-Conversion field

Troops – 1**pts
Kataphron Breachers (x3)
-Heavy Arc cannons (x3)

So, same as the previous list in terms of roles.
Tech-priest dominus takes the stormwolf as his personal transport and brings me my much needed anti-air
Breachers chosen purely as need a troop choice and don't have the grav weapons to make them destroyers. They will probably help the bubble wrap of the dunecrawler as they are a bit tougher.

2000pts List
Skitarii – Skitarii maniple – 840pts
Troops – 360pts
Vanguard (x10)
-Arc rifles (x2)
-Arc Pistol
-Omnispex

Rangers (x10)
-Transuranic arquebus (x3)
-Omnispex

Elites – 360pts
Sicarian Ruststalkers (x5)
-Conversion field
-Transonic razors and chord claws (free)

Sicarian Infiltrators (x5)
-Refractor field
-Flechette blasters and taser goads (free)

Heavy Support – 120pts
Onager Dunecrawler (x1)
-Cognis Heavy stubber
-Neutron laser and cognis heavy stubber

Space Wolves – Company of the great wolf – 585pts
HQ – 110pts
Rune priest
-Mastery level 2
-Bike
-Melta bomb

Elites – 20pts
Servitor (x1)

Servitor (x1)

Fast Attack – 455pts
Stormwolf
-Twinlinked multi-melta

Drop pod

Thunder wolf cavalry (x3)
-Storm shields (x3)
-Wolf claw (x1)

Cult Mechanicus – Allied detachment – 575pts
HQ – 110pts
Tech-priest Dominus
-Conversion field

Troops – 1**pts
Kataphron Breachers (x3)
-Heavy Arc cannons (x3)

Heavy support – 315pts
Kastelan robot maniple
-Twin-linked phosphor blaster (x2)
-Carapace mounted heavy phosphor blaster (x1)


Icing on the cake! Thunder wolves and rune priest (biomancy) act as a screen for the infiltrators
Big robots are in because why the hell not??? nasty buggers!

Do I expect to win? No
Will I have fun playing the lists? Hell yeah!

But of course really would like some feedback, if I'm heading for certain doom it would be nice to be told while there is something I can still do about it.

Only ad mech model I haven't used is a single dragoon, and I don't think I'm going to be able to get any new models for a while. However, space wolf wise have plenty of models, so can easily bring anything in if you think it would be better (except land raiders or whirlwinds)
