Hello there, after reading a few threads on here and talking to a few of you I've finally come up with a 1500 point list to work to. Can you critique it so it's fun and stands a chance in a game.

Forge World:Lucius

Tech-Priest Dominus
Eradication Ray, Macrostubber, Omnissian Axe, The Solar Flare

[b]Tech-Priest Dominus
Eradication Ray, Macrostubber, Omnissian Axe
. Warlord: Necromechanic

Skitarii Rangers
Omnispex
. 2x Ranger (Transuranic Arquebus): 2x Transuranic arquebus
. Ranger Alpha: Galvanic rifle
. 2x Skitarii Ranger

Skitarii Rangers
Omnispex
. Ranger (Transuranic Arquebus): Transuranic arquebus
. Ranger Alpha: Galvanic rifle
. 3x Skitarii Ranger

Skitarii Rangers
Omnispex
. 3x Ranger (Arc Rifle): 3x Arc rifle
. Ranger Alpha: Galvanic rifle
. 6x Skitarii Ranger

Skitarii Vanguards
Omnispex
. 6x Skitarii Vanguard Radium Carbine
. 3x Vanguard (Plasma caliver): 3x Plasma caliver
. Vanguard Alpha: Radium Carbine, Taser goad

Sicarian Infiltrators
5X Stubcarbine & Power sword: Power sword, Stubcarbine

Onager Dunecrawler
. Neutron laser & cognis heavy Stubber: Cognis heavy stubber, Neutron Laser

Onager Dunecrawler
. Neutron laser & cognis heavy Stubber: Cognis heavy stubber, Neutron Laser

Knight Errant
Heavy stubber, Reaper chainsword, Stormspear rocket pod, Thermal cannon

Basic strategy is to hold the vanguard back in with the teleport strategum and hold the infiltrators back as well. When the knight has advanced enough bring the two units in from reserve and use he solar flare to bring the tech-priest dominus forward to re-roll 1's and heal the knight. Whilst the rangers and onagers are on my back line holding objectives and sniping characters.

What do you think?

I wouldn't bother with an Omnispex for your big units. Data tether for rerolling morale would be more useful. Also wouldn't bother with arc rifles on rangers. Either take arquebus or nothing with rangers as you want to use their 30" range to your advantage.
Not sure on your local meta, but I'd rather have the taser and Blasters on infiltrators. Will cause more damage in the long run.

I thought the the omnispex would have been more useful on the larger squads but can actually see how the data tether outshines it in this case. Only problem is that by the time I would have bought and built this army I would only have 3 Arquebus' so would it be better then running 1 squad of 10 rangers all with galvanic riffle or 2 squads of 5?

 

I usually end up playing a mixture of Ultramarines and other flavours of primaris marines and the occasional elder and Tyranid list.

I'd go 2 squads of 5. Then you can set them up apart from each other and create a crossfire with the arquebus.

I suppose it would be best to split the 3 arquebus' across 3 of the 4, 5 man ranger squads?

Seems like these models will never end!

Are all the models made up? Or is this something your looking to build. Do you have additional options or is the above locked in?

Not all of them, I've currently got built
2 ranger alpha's
1 vanguard alpha
3 plasma
3 arquebus
2 arc riffle
7 rangers (galvanic)
6 vanguard (radium)
3 tech priest dominus (eradicator and macro stunner)
Onager (magnetised)
Fully magnetised knight (can be any variant)

Building a second onager and got 6 skitarii (can be either rangers or vanguard) models to build. Not bought the infiltrators yet

I can be flexible, I've not had a chance to have a small game with what I've got, I want to go more down the skitarii route than breachers but am willing to compromise as I want a list I can have fun with and stand a chance of winning :)
