Very "Rock, Paper, Scissors".

Not sure how you would do against tough stuff like Nurgle.

Would be a decent counter pick for marines though!

yeah. god knows there are enough stupidstupid marine players in my area -- something like 4/5 of my games are against marines, and I don't see the new rules/models/upgrades making the competitive jerks who are so common here suddenly go buy armies of tau. The point of this list, though, was to try to make picking secondaries harder for an enemy than gaurd armies (with a fair number of troop and tank) normally do.

thin the ranks? you get 8 points. assaasinate? you get at most 12. (not perfect, but they are scions, they often hide offboard till the 3rd turn by which point they can maybe find a safe corner to deepstrike in, so I think maybe he gets only 9 points if I am clever, and this army could survive one tempestor hiding and still perform about as well.).
antipsyker? you get 5. kill vehicles? you get 10 at most.

Compared to my NORMAL list, that's bloody revolutionary!
