Noticing how the cult scout/armoured sentinel datasheet in Codex:GSC is a different datasheet from the scout/armoured sentinel datasheet in Codex:Astra Militarum, the following list came to my mind ...

 

okay, to be honest, I though about running a bunch of sentinels with missile launchers and hunter killer missiles (HKMs), but after fiddling around and noticing what I could take instead of the HKMs, I arrived at the following list:

 

 

Genestealer cult (outrider detachment)

 

HQ

Jackal Alphus 70

 

Fast Attack

3x Cult Scout Sentinel, multilaser 105

3x Cult Scout Sentinel, multilaser 105

3x Cult Scout Sentinel, multilaser 105

3x Cult Armoured Sentinel, plasmacannon 120

3x Cult Armoured Sentinel, plasmacannon 120

3x Cult Armoured Sentinel, plasmacannon 120

 

Heavy Support

3x Brood Brother Heavy Weapons Team, mortar 33

3x Brood Brother Heavy Weapons Team, mortar 33

 

 

Astra Militarum (outrider detachment)

 

HQ

Primaris Psyker, force stave 46

 

Fast Attack

3x Scout Sentinel, multilaser 105

3x Scout Sentinel, multilaser 105

3x Scout Sentinel, multilaser 105

3x Armoured Sentinel, plasmacannon 120

3x Armoured Sentinel, plasmacannon 120

3x Armoured Sentinel, plasmacannon 120

 

Heavy Support

Basilisk, heavy bolter 108

Basilisk, heavy bolter 108

 

total: 1748 pts

 

 

36 sentinels, 2 vehicles, 2 hwts, 2 characters

 

tactic: swarm the board with walkers while the psyker helps the basilisks and mortars. Meanwhile, the alphus snipes characters.

 

 

Obviously, this 8th edition list is inspired by 7th edition "emperors talon recon company" formation.

Given the size of sentinels, it's probably a pain to transport.

 

I don't have enough sentinel models to field even a fourth of the list.

Well, tbh, I probably won't be able to ever field this list.

 

Like dreadnought only lists, there's too much wounds concentrated on only a few models.

So, I wouldn't recommend anyone to actually build this.

Cult sentinels are Brood Brothers so the Jackal Alphus doesn't buff them. You'd be better with a Magus.

How would I fit a magus with only 2 points left?

You're missing the powerlifters - possibly the best option!
