So basically, 36 plasma. I suspect that there may be a few sisters armies in the GT and a few marine armies, but also a fair number of chaos, nurgling blob spam, and necrons. After lots and lots of waffling on what I wanted to run, this is a smaller list that I might have expected to make. My generic fear that a few people may be spamming eradicators leads me to take LOTS of tauroxes, or none at all, I opted lots.

It was pointed out to me by someone very kind that I wasn't well equipped to deal with the highly probable and horrifically hard for plasma to kill dreadnaught redempters, which are now a thing since the codex dropped. So I revamped to have a slightly better chance to do so (believe it or not, they WERE what old grudges was for.) New list in spoiler. I know it doesn't LOOK better at fighting dreads, but remember that scions can order troops to reroll all woudns with their S4 hotshotvolleyguns, and those add up. If I can bring 2 of the 3 dreads down in a round on the drop, I am content with my chances for now.


Spoiler:

Underlined units are from the kappic eagles with their most excellent handling of hotshotvolleyguns and disembarks. Others are all Lambda lions or not scions at all.
tempest prime with command rod, extra warlord trait (old grudges) and powersword and LL relic (refractory field generator)
tempest prime with command rod, LL warlord trait (keys to armory -1 cp), aquila(-1cp)
tempest prime with command rod, laurels of command(-2cp)
inquisitor (malleus) with upgrade package (extra psyker activation, denial, spell, and extra range infernopistol relic) and chainsword. knows smite, castigate, and psychic pursuit
astropath with malstrom
command squad with 4 plasma
command squad with 4 plasma
command squad with 4 plasma ..470
10 man scions squad with 4 plasma
10 man scinos squad with 4 volleyguns
10 man scions squad with 4 volleyguns
10 man scions squad with 4 volleyguns
5 man scions squad with 2 plasma
5 man scions squad with 2 plasma
10 man scions squad with 4 volleyguns
10 man scions squad with 4 volleyguns 810
So, a bit different than spamming just plasma.
taurox prime with gatling turret and 2 hotshotvolleygun

valkyrie flyer with hellstrike missle and multilaser720
CP spent. -2 (patrol) and -1 (extra warlord) and -1 (requisition for the inquisition) (-1extra relics) so I start with 7, but will regenerate them far faster with the aquila in play. Also, well, I probably can't spend more than about 3 pre round with this setup, I get one every round, and 2 on some rounds from aquila. so 7 .. 5 ...2 ... 1 ... 1 in the very worst case, and probably I will gain about 2 for an aquila. maybe its worth it?

Suggestions very welcome. I have 2 weeks to build and paint as of tonight. (Edit. PRobably not a lot to build, I have this many plasma and volley already)

In current gen form, this list gives up 10 thin the ranks,10 abhor a witch, 13 vehicle, and (sigh) up to 15 assassinate. But as gaurd its ephemeral at best your chances to not be assassinate vulnerable, and at least I can hold a few tempest prime (theoretically) in deepstrike and then in whatever vehicles remain, to play keep alive.

I dig this list. You might be one of the few that matches well against the new DA.. assuming their pdf is allowed.

Already said much in PM so I won't repeat. But on characters and secondaries I feel like the psykers aren't buying the list as much as they're costing it.

Losing both psykers would yield less CP investment, 0 vp to abhor, 9 vp to assassinate, able to use abhor yourself and more. You won't have the slight hedge against duty eternal (or characters) but honestly its not enough anyway. If anything an assassin would be better for the same pts.

On dreads/mech if your not wanting to bring in Guard for the big guns like manticores for example, you could at least include some meltas (and gorgonnes with it).
Also consider that the threat of erads could push all but the most hyper efficient mech out of this event.
