Tried and tested. The simple idea of this force is to send the 2 Space-turkeys at anything that can pop the Rhinos to disrupt and distract. The 3 Rhino party vans are laden with the, “Advanced and Reroll charge, reroll hit (+1A on 6, Imperium), reroll wound, and repeat again party Zerkers”. Party goers upset anything that can bother the 3 cultists units, who proceed to march over to the objectives supported by the 2 Dark Apostles, Cultist should be able to use apostles leadership and use Word Bearers reroll bad morale dice. (yes I know Black Legion +1Ld is 5.5% is better but less fluffy). Use stratagems from your 8 CP to replace damaged cultist squads. Moving the plasma pistol and Relic out of the Van might be worthwhile as it’s bit overkill there and it might be better to buff the Cultists Apostles.

Don’t forget to use your grenades and always make sure you get your charge in first!

Seems like fun, great ammount of objective holders, is lacking in the anti tank department but then again if the Berzerkers arrive you should still be good. 

One thing regarding your first detachment I do want to note is that unless you want them to be World Eaters I wouldn't go for the melee kit. Word Bearers in particular seem to add very little to those units in my opinion. Where with World Eaters you at least gain a bonus attack on the charge with the Cultists.

The second Detachment seems fine.

The last Detachement again I would like to know why you would pick the Renegade Legion Trait here. If your Berzerkers are in those Rhino's I don't really see a point in transporting them there only to gain very little benifit out of the Legion Trait, also here World Eaters seem to be the better pick. Additional attacks on Berzerkers are sick. 

Cheers,

Hi, thanks for the feedback.
so melee kit was on the list because this list last fight was the campaign mission to stop the escapees (can't remember which week it was) teleporty GK was a real pain but I did manage to bog them down. Yes guns in general would be the better choice. The rerolling moral of word bearers with the Dark Apostle near by gives them a little more staying power, Black legion would probably be a statistically better choice but hey Fluff.

The renegade legion was picked so I could advance and charge the rhinos getting the besserkers where they needed to go quicker with a bit if luck and also hopefully messing up overwatch. It worked well. Extra attacks are great but they need to get there then have a threat range to the next target once you have smashed the first. Imo

You're taking way too many characters. What's the point of having 5 dark apostles in the list when there's not nearly that many units for them too buff? The dark apostles in the word bearers detachment don't even add anything at all since they can't give rerolls to units in the other detachments, and the ld9 buff for cultists is mostly useless since the unit is either going to die outright or your ld 9 is going to save a cultist or two at most. 

 

Drop down to 2 dark apostles max, and drop an exalted champion. That leaves you a ton of pts to fill holes in the list, like anti tank.
