So Ive used Relics of the Thousand sons and I'll also be using Webway Infiltration on the Tzaangor unit. This leaves me with 5 Cps as the game starts.

Tzaangor arrive along with the Scarabs. Tzaangor aiming for a T1 charge on an 8+ due to the instrument. Scarabs put out some ranged firepower and also aim for a charge. The daemon prince will be near by to support with rerolls thanks to warptimeing himself. Hell he may even charge too.

 

Rubrics camp my midfield objectives and try do some ranged mortal damage with their spells. 24 inchs and being able to target charcaters us handy.  They also screen the Skyfire Enlightened unit. The Enlightened are being buffed buy the auras from the Shaman and Exhalted Sorc, One unit receiving Prescience and Weaver of Fates. Ahriman and the Vortex beast are also around this area.

 

The Forgefiends camp backlines making use of the extra range from the Daemon princes Flickering flame and the Daemonforge strat.

 

Anyhow thats the basic idea. The only issue I have now is do I make the Enlightened a 9 man blob and give the Exhalted Sorc a Disc. I think this makes them too much of a target.

 

Thoughts guys?

Updated the list, some errors with points calculation (hey it was late) and a few minor tweeks.

So put Ahriman on his disc to aid with mobility. Dropped the Heldrake for a Contemptor with Butcher cannons. Mostly to make use of the Fire Frenzy strat.

That it is, I forgot I had 10 points free at the end and gave both units Icons of Flame.  Updated the list

Ok new list. Had a practise game with the above list and it didnt go too well... need more ranged firepower. The obvious choice is still 3 Killshot predators....
