Hey and welcome to my newest brain child. Besides having a fully fleshed out Possessed Star, this list also features going second fail-safes(including re-deploys, +2 cover saves), an extra possible 2D6 movement for the possessed(in the form of being able to advance, WT, advance and charge), as well as a 1KS battalion in which I use 2 of the 3 mandatory troop choices as the other two 'bombs' to which this list owes it's name. The Rubrics will deploy far up the field using their new stratagem, effectively replacing the Nurglings of the classic Possessed Bomb list, then unleashing hell on the enemy. Tzaangors will jump via Darkmatter Crystal and attempt a T1 charge. When the Rubrics eventually lose models, the sorcerer in terminator armour will drop down near them and if the DP is near them, cast Time Flux with a +4 to cast(using Cabalistic Focus), trying to get that 9+ psychic test to get back D3 models. This list should be able to project even more board control than a regular Possessed Bomb.

Please let me know what you guys think of it. CC welcome!

Just curious, how do you expect this list to do vs 3 flyers. A helldrake won't do enough, and a demon prince will do something before it gets dropped.

This army floods the board with so much durable body and damage output that he can effectively ignore flyers because they will never kill enough to mitigate the loss of objectives and board control.

Overall I really like this list post-PA GK, since the -4 disco lord gets utterly dumpstered by GK it's now completely ineffective as possessed screening. This list is also highly resilient to TFC since all 3 of your bombs either teleport or is untargettable.

The only thing I'm not keen on is the fortification detachment. I think a chaos daemon detachment with contorted epitome will have much better utility due to how easily you can touch multiple units with your combat blobs, the epitome helps keep them in combat for longer and also help you absorb GK smites, not to mention you can revive the epitome if a GK unit kills it

Pieces seem there so it'll likely just come down to you piloting of the list.

I think the new new buffed GKs are a hard counter but that's just a rock paper scissors type list.

Don't forget to spend CP to protect the Rubric Marines with Indomitable Foes and Weaver of Fates when possible.

2s turning into 3s is pretty funny when All is Dust triggers but even just giving them a 3++ or 4++ can help.

I'm surprised you took Time.

The nurgle tree is purely experimental. I still have to get more games under my belt before I make my final decision on it. So far I do like the additional layer of utility it provides. It has caught quite a few opponents off guard as it's not the norm for the possessed list. My epitome is getting quite bored on the bench though... lol

Of course, and that's exactly why I took time. I can support the blob of rubrics quite nicely that way. Cult of Magic would be my other choice, if I was running a SCD.
