purely a fun list on this one; i wanted to see how many tanks i could fit in a 1500 pt. list and still be somewhat competitive.

i know that i could have gotten rid of one Autarch and the Guardians in favor of another Serpent and 5 man unit of Avengers, but a possible tactic would be to put everything in reserve and go second.

was not sure on how to equip the Autarchs though, and they're kitted for CC simply to give a couple of units of Avengers (or the Guardians) a slight boost, though i think they could probably equipped differently.

lastly, i know i could have used Destructor (and no Spear) on the Warlock and come out to 1500 exact, but the Guardians are my 'at home' unit they could hang in cover and i didn't want them to run too easily.

i might try to run this in a friendly game one of these days; C&C is welcome. i posted this list in another forum and no has made a reply to it. surely this list can't be perfect as is?

It's probably pretty good. I don't think you need two autarchs; most, if not all the serpents should have Bright Lances because they're the most accurate platform in the army; 3 prisms is fun but probably counter-productive and I'd give the guardians a serpent instead. Also, at 1500 probably 2 of the 5 troops should be small suicide fire dragon squads for anti-tank.

Essentially, what Avatar8481 said. Love the typo calling Autarchs Exarchs, btw. :P

i rather like the two Autarchs for the bonuses i get for reserves.

i see your point to going with BL on two of the Serpents thought.

i wouldn't mind getting rid of a Prism tank, and i'll admit that Serpents w/no tl BL or even EML feel a bit weak.

i'll play around with this and re-post. good catch on my typing TKE...
