Yes It's sub optimal. but fun, runs around 50/50 in my meta which is perfect for a fun game.

What I want to know is did I make a legal mistake? Something about special detachments not getting to take relics... I can't find the rule. Could you guys help me?

The Sanctus is AMAZING in this list, he negates overwatch on one entire unit and the GeneStealers eat it.

Seems legal as far as I can tell. Never seen a Nid army with a GSC detachment, usually it's the other way around. Hope you had fun painting 120 Stealers, it's the one thing I hate about horde armies haha!

Not quite legal unfortunately.
What you're missing is that the free relic you get has to be from the same faction as your warlord. So you can't put that void wyrm amulet on your sanctus.

Auxilliary support detachments don't give you access to stratagems. Meaning that getting around this will be more complicated than just using the GSC 'extra relic' stratagem.


One option is you could make the Sanctus your warlord. He has a special rule meaning that he cannot have a warlord trait, but he can still be a warlord if you're ok giving that up.
That would let him take the free relic. At the cost of the warlord trait on your broodlord. Which isn't actually a terrible deal. One Step Ahead isn't great (tyranids don't have very good warlord traits in general).
