Two variations in mind here, avoiding Knights completely just 'cos. If you're wondering why there's no scouts, I hate the models. I'm also trying to avoid Devs just for variation.

List 1

Ultramarines Battalion

Captain (Bike, SS, TH)
Primaris Lt w/ master-craft stalker bolt rifle
4x Intercessors w/ Aux. Grenade Launcher (5)
3x Scout Bikes, Sgt w/ Stormbolter (3)
Relic Leviathan w/ Storm Cannons, heavy flamers
Contemptor Mortis w/ 2* twin-las

Stygies AdMech Outrider

Enginseer
2x Datasmith
3x Ironstrider w/ twin-cog las (1)
2x Kastelan Robots w/ Heavy phosphorus blasters (2)

Total: 1995pts, 9CP


List 2

Ultramarines Battalion

As above, minus one Intercessor squad

Stygies AdMech Battalion

2x Enginseer
1x Skitarii Rangers (5) w/ 2x Arquebus
1x Skitarii Rangers (5) w/ 1x Arquebus
1x Kataphron Breachers (3)
2x Ironstrider w/ twin-cog las (1)
2x Kastelan Robots w/ Heavy phosphorus blasters (2)

Total: 1997pts, 13CP


I really like the ironstriders for cheap twin las platforms (at least on paper), Kastelans and Leviathan obviously for dakka.
The Primaris make for decent obj scoring, same with the scout bikes. I think I have enough las in there, perhaps not in the 2nd variation, but 9CP does feel a little low.

1) not a legal spearhead ( outrider) + 2 datasmitha 1 at most and probably none with only 2 kastelan.

Same in 2

Some more bodies /dunecrawler might not go amis but clearly a funzi list

Outrider, that's what I meant
It's 3 units of 1 Ironstrider, should be legit.
It's 2 units of Kastelan, 2 bots in each. I was thinking one datasmith for each of them.

Why not deploy them next to each other and use 1. I personnally tend not to use one at all and just use the strat as a one time turn into a turret any points you save on things that are not essential are points you turn into threat

Maybe some arquebuses for the rangers to make up for the lack of scouts/snipers

Alright, tweaked it a bit. Didn't notice Kataphrons were troops before so subbed one of them in too.

Nice, although kataphrons do have a habit of dying easily - not that the stats suggest this. An alternative may be to swap them and an enginseer out for vanguard and a TP Dominus is to give rerolls on 1. Dominii (?) can heal and have a 2 up save so can give the opposition some grief. A lot more expensive however but those rerolls will help the snipers, striders and robots.

I was thinking of the specialist detachment (2CP total) to give the unit 5++. I'll try out both ideas this week though.
