Hello all,

Trying to break onto the competitive scene and have an event upcoming in the next few months.

Have had a couple of practice games with this list and was resoundly trounced by an Eldar list, but performed well against a Dark Angels list.

I would appreciate any critique of this list and any help on how I could make it better.

Thanks in advance

You don't need three Culexus. Consider swapping one or two out for Eversors or coming up with a different detachment structure entirely.

You don't have much for scoring objectives. You need more boots on the ground unless your entire game plan revolves around tabling the enemy.

You're offering up a lot of secondary points for ITC. Reaper, Big Game Hunter, Headhunter off the top of my head.

Thanks for feedback man. I've made a few changes to the list below.
Here is my reasoning;

Baneblade could Ambush using the Tallarn strategem and be a threat, or sit back with the psykers and get the -1 to hit and +1 to armour saves cast on it. With Valhallan, it will fire on full BS for longer.

Dropped an assassin to shave off points and swapped a cullexus for an eversor as per your thoughts.

Took off an infantry squad and put in a Spearhead detachment to get more scoring units. Now all my Russes are obsec. With Catachan it will help with the random shot weapons.

Coming away from Cadian doctrine means I lose access to the Relic of Lost Cadia which is great against Chaos but a waste against any other army really. This feels more like an all comers list.

Let me know what you think.
