Its 1995 I had to account for the Kastelans because I'm not sure if they are discounted or not, better to be safe than unfair.

I didn't include engine war units as I do not have any but when I get some I plan to include some serberys riders

Please tell me what you might change or what you think.

Thank You!

Just a question - why the fourth Enginseer?

Might want to switch a few of those barebones ranger squads either to vanguard to provide a bit of a different profile for you to use and switch in a few arc rifles. At 2 pts.. they're just too cheap for +2S

The Infiltrators are supposed to be a WoM bomb I assume?
A bit small of a unit.. 25 shots, 17 hits, less than 2 MW on avg...


With the E-Priests and the Terrax being the only assaulty elements in the list, I dont think they'll do much... they'll have 2k pts arrayed against them that do not want them there.

Also, Disintegrators are more consistent than Onagers and usually push them out of lists if the points arent enough.
Remember, with the Mars Canticle the Onagers may be S11, which does not help vs literally anything, but Ferumites are S9, which helps wound LR and other T8s on 3s now.

Also you can use mechanicum locum several times as it is not used in a "phase", so you actually could give the 4th enginseer the "fall back and shoot" to vehicles.
Making Cawl the Warlord doesnt change anything but making your WL way, way beefier.

I beefed up vanguard squads and switched to Disintegrators I don't usually run them a lot just because they haven't been as realiable as onagers for me personally but with the mars canticle you're right I am wounding on threes.

because I want to keep it as a brigade I split my Kastelan so it would make sense to run a second Datasmith as it would not make sense to me to run two groups of Infiltrators and there isn't a whole lot in the way of Elite choices as servitors dont serve a purpose along with hoplites and peltasts as they would get taken out too fast to do anything.

I like the maniupulus because of his ability to increase the range of the Ferrumite Cannons and other weapons.

Thank you for your thoughts so far.

True, servitors dont serve much of purpose, but they are cheaper than even a datasmith is. It is 20 "wasted" points, but a second datasmith doesnt do that much too - also consider that 2 units of dakkabots eat twice as much CP as one unit would.
The threat of overspilling wounds is rather slim on kastelans, as is morale, so one big unit has some advantages since you can split fire them anyways. They could get tarpitted more easily but that is what artisan's fall back and shoot comes in if you dont permanently break their legs.

But that s a minor change that shouldnt influence the outcome of a game anyway.

Neutronagers are more reliable for you? That is news!
Random shots and random damage means an Onager has a big chance to whiff when firing at LR EQ... Ferumites have less potential, but more consistency.
