Hey all,

I've tried to avoid the space marine bandwagon and want to try make Ynnari work. I've got all these models along with about half a dozen more units.

+ Dedicated Transport +

Wave Serpent [9 PL, 160pts]: Shuriken Cannon, Twin Shuriken Cannon

++ Total: [104 PL, 12CP, 2,000pts] ++

Gameplay is to have all the transports loaded with troops to go sit on objectives, fire at stuff then eventually pop and still have dire avengers spill out and keep the objective.

Meanwhile my Wraithblades, Wraithlord, wraithseerr, Farseer and Yncarne run up the board as a blob. Yncarne can offer up 5+ invulnerable and 6+fnp in a bubble and remain shielded.

Shining spears are there to go after an elites or harass. Thought swooping hawks could work as a objective grabbing unit.

Thanks for any thoughts on the list!

One thing I might be wary of is units over 5, especially the spears. Plasma inceptors are getting very popular with marines and units of six trigger their minimum/maximum three shots with each gun so six shots per inceptor.
But overall it's a good balanced list, not tournament winning by any means but plenty good enough for normal games.

What does this offer as opposed to a Craftworld list? The Lost Shroud is a solid relic. SfD can be very good, but the stratagems seem a bit lackluster compared to Craftworlds in this case.

Whoah....I have played 40K for over 30 years.

Oh I totally agree. There's literally 3 Strats I use which really gimps me when I'm playing Imperium who have all the latest shiny toys. However the Warlord Trait/Relic is amazing. Personally I love Wraith constructs and had a Iyanden Army back in 8th and it was just average. I feel that running Ynnari actually makes them play how I want them to (actually scary in combat). Plus the Yncarne is an absolute monster and great for pulling shenanigans.

The psychic powers pale in comparison, but at least word of the Phoenix is great for bringing back Wraithblades which you can't do as Craftworld and Ancestors Grace + Unbind souls works like guide + doom.

I actually think an outrider of 20 Reaver jetbikes could really boost the list. But I want to keep plugging away with what I've got for now

I like it.

I like Wraithlords as character escorts. You can't knock them below 3 models and lose your look out sir.

Falcons do the same thing I believe.

I feel like wave serpents are only necessary if your board lacks terrain.

If you're able to drop that and maybe the extra wraithlord, thats 270 points.

Maybe dark reapers?

I'd also optimize your Exarch powers.

Avenging strikes
Swooping dive
Swooping barrage

I'm actually dropping the wave serpent, everyone leaves them as they're durable and shurikens don't scare anyone and putting pricey heavy weapons makes them sooo expensive.

Exarch powers can't be changed sadly for Ynnari.

I've actually given up on the swooping hawk. For the same reason I'd avoid dark reapers. The finecast is awful.

I've actually got an updated list...

++ Total: [106 PL, 9CP, 2,000pts] ++

So I think Reaver jetbikes beat out shining spears + Skyweavers as Ynnari as they're a bunch cheaper, can be given combat drugs (I'd give them +1 toughness) power from pain 6+++ and I can put a bunch of very strong anti tank on them with the 4 Blasters. I'd ride my Skyrunner Farseer with them also to buff them with shield of ynnead for 5++. In combat they'd be pretty solid as Ynnari 2+ WS then +1 attack strat on them and inherent -1 blade vane attacks.

Razorwing flock is just a tax that I'd throw on backline objectives or stick them in buildings for secondaries.

I know the blob of them isn't great for blast weapons out there but buffs would end up being watered down. Like giving them reroll hits and wounds from psychic plus that +1 attack strat etc
