What do people think is the better options against nids? Maugen Ra or the Avatar? Equal points but one CC monster or a shooty monster? A third option would be a second farseer to give a better chance at Eldritch Storm at 4 WC, which I think would be a treat in this game. That would give some more points to random upgrades or a small seercouncil. @Sethis @neferhet @Meldon

I have edited the list since I'm taking the Spiritstone of Anath'lan (-1 WC cost when manifesting a psychic power). I had to cut down on Guardians but could give their warlock a spear aswell. @Meldon

Now since we are on the same side, will you bring any Libby with you or will I have all our warp charges?

Thanks for the reply @the_barwn but I don't have the models, my two options are what I have? And why would you take Vibrocannons against a horde army? Even D-cannons? Think Shadowweavers would work better if anything. Yeah yeah strength D but no, against Deathwing, anyday but not bugs.

No WarWalkers. BL? Against Nids? I need lots of shots and lots of templates/blasts. D-cannons could work against nids but I would rather take Weavers because the range and alot cheeper. Cannons would be better against the big bugs but blast are better vs large groups instead of single powerful models. Have EML/Starcannons/PulsLaders/ShuriCannons/Scatterlaser/and everything with bladestorm for that. Once again, I have what I have and the two options I have presented are what I can muster. I lean more and more against trading Mr Ra for another farseer

Yes I can see the pro's for dropping mr Ra for more psionincs but do you have any of the other Phoenix Lords?
Jain Zar or Karandras would also be useful as a big bug killer.
Hmm, have you also thought about Warlocks to bolster the guardian units as well?
The Guardians have their Warlock. Mr Ra is the best option PL-wise against nids, he can lay down the fire that is needed and he is not far behind in CC. Tough taking a CC oriented PL versus Nids falls on the same hurdle as the Avatar. Even more so as they don't have any ++save. If I had had a vyper or two I would have taken formations. Windrider Host + Seer council + Aspect Host + Engines of Vaul. This is a list I would love to try out. Psychic tests on 3+. One use shread on the windriderhost, BS5 Dire Avengers and Reapers. But, what I have is what I have. If you want to know what I have you can have a look here.
