Hey everyone! I'm starting out a scions army because I absolutely love the models and the lore behind them. I know they aren't tournament competitive,but they're more for playing with my buddies. We do play casually, however, we are all all pretty competitive so we go for smaller lists that aren't super optimised to balance fun with fluff and actually trying to win. Would just like some opinions on the list

General plan is each valk has one command squad, one plasma troop squad and one of the HQ's (I like balance to make target priority more difficult) with a mission to hover and drop their payload turn one. The 2 tauroxes in the rear providing anti-infantry support, holding objectives, or moving forward. The 10 man with the volleyguns will most likely drop wherever support is needed. Criticism on my tactics also welcome XD

I would try to find the points to put Lascannons on both Valkyries. It's only 20 points to upgrade both and Lascannons are ridiculously better than Multi-Lasers. I would also replace the Lord Commissar with another Tempestor Prime. Both Valkyrie drops want orders and a Prime riding shotgun in each gives you more tactical flexibility.

I was thinking about it but they only hit on 4's and I have to get rid of the heavy bolters which should provide a few more infantry kills. I'll have to think about it, for sure taking the tempestus prime, had the commissar for my original plan with more people in squads for the morale boost

Not necessarily. You can trim points on the lone Plasma Gunner in each command squad. Trust me, 1x S9 -3 D6 damage shot is going to be more clutch than 3x S6 -0 1 damage shots. Multi-lasers are complete garbage. A Lascannon upgrade for 10 points is a steal. If you're going to run Valkyries, the best load out IMO is Lascannon, 2x Heavy Bolters, 2x Multiple Rocket Pods. Don't forget that you can split fire. Put the Lascannon on a heavy target and the Heavy Bolters and Multiple Rocket Pods on whatever else.

The Battle Cannon and Gattling Cannon seem such a waste on the Taurox as the LR get to shoot twice for the same amount of points.

I've had decent success with ML/Dual AutoCannon

No madam, 40,000 is the year that this game is set in. Not how much it costs. Though you may have a point. - GW Fulchester
The Gatling Guns have flamethrowers on them because this is 40k - DOW III
