Been noodling a few ideas around, refined them down to this 2k list. General idea is the big squad of Neophytes, Primus and Magus deep strike into the middle of the board, while the two ten man squads party bus in their Goliaths where needed. The Acolytes get pointed at something scary and melt it thanks to stratagems, and the Aberrants/Purestrains rip through whatever looks like it needs that many bodies lobbed at it. The Kelermorphs and Sanctii support where needed and the 9 lascannon teams should be enough to pop a tank or two a turn.

I should also point out that this isn't a tournament list, it's just for playing with mates, so feel free to point out busted stuff I *could* be doing bit I make no promises to actually do it. Also I'm convinced I can chop and change some stuff and make a Brigade, but I can't quite see it.

Nice list. :tu:

May I suggest spending an extra CP to give one of your Sanctii The Gift From Beyond relic (+2 to wound against anything that doesn't have the VEHICLE or TITANIC keyword)? Makes bagging characters that much more certain.
