It's a friendmaker list for sure.

 

I assume it's for highly-competitive  *cough*  tournament play ?

 

There's everything tacked into 2.5k pts. a lot of people wouldn't wanna face combined like that.

- A Primarch plus a LoW

- Raptora Sekhmet (as troops)

- Three 5'' Phosphex Pies

- Two 5'' Demolisher Pies

-  ... and an Arcus.

 

Maybe a null-deploy list has a fair chance against it, but even when one manages to take out most of the heavy armour turn one, there'll still be Magnus and the Sekhmet coming in.

 

But yes, on a personal note, I'd play against it (see last line below).

 

 

Now, onto more serious tactical advice:

 

- Your Sekhmet are horribly under-equipped, you want five combi weapons and two chain fists in there.

- 'Corvidae'  will help with the shatter shells, but won't do jack for the phosphex on the Rapiers.

- 'Machine Spirit'  on the Vindicators makes no sense.

- Not giving the super-heavy tank its Lascannon sponsons is a waste.

- Where is the Siege Breaker going ?  (In case the answer is 'the Rapiers', consider the following: The crew is unity type infantry, the Rapiers themselves are unit type artillery.)

- You only have two scoring units ...

I do agree with the Terminators being under equipped, it's finding the points I would like them to outfitted the same then there is no drawback to one of them rolling levitation and Magnus could go in either units and not be disadvantaged.

The Corvidae on the raipers it's the only sensible cult seems they get it for free, and the machine spirit is there so the vindicators can always move twelve and fire its main cannon at full BS even if someone made it snap fire the turn before

I left the las cannons off the Typhon because you can put them on cheaper on the javelins which hit on 2's for ground targets. So if it come to the fact I can't get rid of armour i will probably change them out
