I'm planning on jumping full-force into admech now that the new FAQ is out. They're looking a lot stronger and I feel like a brigade is far more attractive. I absolutely ADORE Sydonian Dragoons and have been itching to run them as a screen with Styges. I'm not so sure about the infiltrators, but they're ok to fill the elites slot for now. Thoughts?

Given the CP increase to 5 for battalions it actually makes sense it avoid the tax and stack battalions rather than go for a brigade.

I would increase dakabots to at least 4. Take Cawl. Get rid of the extra 2 individual dragoons and the data Smith. Maybe ace some of the Rangers squads and depending what other models you own maybe add in something else. Dragoons are awesome so if you have enough points left over feel free to increase that squad of 4 to a 5.

Would need to work out the points but you get the idea

I would probably do something like this. But really dependent on what models you’ve got.

Ok that came out weird, was supposed to be 2 battalions. One mars with an infiltrators bomb of 10. And your heavy castle.

Then a stgyies batallion housing your dragoons etc.

That's not bad. I'm not a huge fan of the robots though to be honest. They can put out an incredible amount of fire, but I would probably drop a bot or two and run three onagers. Still an excellent suggestion.

Also, why vanguards over rangers? I get that the guns are a bit better, but the rangers are cheaper and that's all I really care about. It isn't like their firepower will be game-changing.

Well just in case your playing new beta rules. The rule of 3 prohibits stacking multiples above 3 of the same data sheet. It’s a beta rule and probably only tournaments etc will stick to it. = 3s the max

If your not a fan of the robots then I would go fully stygies and ditch Cawl. The robots is the driving force behind them. Tbh it really depends on what you want to do. If you just want to have fun then play what you like. If your wanting a more competitive build then you might want to tweak things slightly.

Infiltrators aren’t very good comparatively to other units but they are fun and if you did take them in a mars detachment then you can use wrath of mars stratagem to put out some surprise mortal wounds.

Rvd1ofakind from Dakaka once said

“Our units from best to worst.

Cawl
DakKastelans
Dragoons
Onagers
<gap>
skitarii
<gap>
others
<gap>
destroyers
ruststalkers
<gap>
servitors”

That seems to be roughly the consensus regarding effectiveness

Don't get me wrong, I understand how good the robots are, I just prefer an onager to a couple bots. Mind you, I'm not building any new army until the knights book drops. If they're good I'll play them with admech support, but if they suck I'll run a list similar to yours.

This is the one one working towards.

I don’t have all the models but this is the list I will probably try if I’m playing to win such as entering a tournament.
