Major GT coming up and I was looking for advice on my list. Running pure Harlequins because I despise Drukhari and Craftworlds. Would love to hear what you think!

Well, this is an ambitious list, rather difficult to play.
Assault with Harlies is difficult to pull off these days.

What is your plan for fighting Daemons? A list with 60 plaguebearers and some daemon princes behind them is quite common. The 3 most common lists are probably daemon soup like that, imperium soup with Knights, and eldar with flyers. Make sure you have a plan for all 3. I know what you'd do vs eldar flyers and imperium, but I don't know how your list would fare vs daemons.

Against knights or other vehicle heavy armies like venom spam this list is quite good. I agree with the above poster that demons will eat you but rock paper scissors matchups are unfortunately how competitive is played as you cannot be good against everything.

Pure Harlequins is ballsy, adding a hemlock or 2 would definitely complement the list, not to mention a mind war farseer, but I like it.

I think the solitaire could be key for you, if you can get him where he needs to go, IE killing important support characters. I've dropped bloodthirsters and princes with a blitzed solitaire more than once.

As already mentioned, hordes could be a problem, but at least you've still got 18 d6 shots to pump into something if there's no heavies around.

If you're set on pure harlies there's nothing major I'd change about the list, just watch out for anything immune to morale.

Thanks for all the feedback everyone! Made a bit of a shift and have a new list. Which do you prefer? The original list or this one?

Well, I'd prefer the latter list. But I miss fusion guns.

I really like the first list. The troops in the second list, lacking all but a single embrace per squad, aren't very punchy. Starweavers with fusion clowns are neat but running them en masse without fusion and/or soaring spite seems inefficient. Would be very interested to hear how each list plays out.
