hello folks, i've planned this list focused at dealing mortal wounds and high-damage output at range. Any advice are appreciated.

Warpcog convocation 60
Arch warlock 160 (spell: chain warp lightning, relic: esoteric warp resonator)
Arkhspark voltik 110
Warlock enginseer 100
Warplightning cannon 180
Arkhspark voltik 110
Warlock enginseer 100
Warplightning cannon 180

Jezzail team (6) 280
Ratling team 80
Ratling team 80

Verminlord warpseer 260 (general: master of magic, relic: staff of rightful supremacy)
Clanrats (20) 120
Clanrats (20) 120
Gutter runners (5) 60

Total 2000 / battleline (3) / leaders (4) / artillery (3) / behemoth (1)

So, the plan is to screen shooty stuff with clanrats. The verminlord uses his command ability to let screens ignore morale, and meanwhile casting dreaded warpgale for mortal wounds and slowing enemy units. Both enginseers let the cannons "overcharge", for a lot of mw. The Arch warlock buffs the jezzail teams for 3 damage per model. Aaaand the ratling gun is just for fun and points.

Edit: I noticed that my initial build was not legal, so I fixed it, my apologies.

Clanrats are your only battleline here, so you'll need three units of them. Ratling gun damage output is not particularly good for their point cost (and durability), you would be better served dropping them to get that third clanrat unit. The remaining 40 points can upgrade your engineers to bombardiers, which come with a better ranged attack.

Consider; Games Workshop rules not so much games but as toolboxes for players to craft an experience from, and open/narrative/matched play just examples of how things can be put together.

Youre right, the gutter runners dont count as battleline in this case. I'll have it fixed;
