The idea is to use the Lokhust as ranged big guns/objective monkeys. At 60pts they're basically just crypto thralls holding lascanons but with better movement. The between the reroll from superior artisans on 2 of the destroyers and 1cp to auto wound the other they should be pretty reliable shooting and the pregame move should help with getting into position to do damage.
Each Ctan has a wraith bodyguard unit that has the durability to tank smites and eat overwatch so that the ctan can get stuck in fairly directly and without taking much damage on the way in, the wraiths also have obsec so that if any survive the fight they can flip objectives. The ctan themselves are specced to fight, the nightbringer kills most things and the transcendent has str 7 and 6 attacks so that it can also do damage.
The centre of the board will be held by anakyr and the lychguard, obsec and their durable profile coupled with anakyr's buffs make them something to think twice about. 40 str 7 attacks can take a chunk out of most things.
Pure action and objective sitting duties will be fulfilled by the immortals and crypto thralls. The more far flung objectives will be pushed onto or blocked off by the ghost ark sporting 10 warriors for a lose lose situation when it comes to objective holding.
Finally the second HQ is a technomancer, it provides utility for the army bringing back core units like the lychguard increasing their resilience and also repairing the ghost ark. The final trick up his sleeve will be veiling one of the core units somewhere useful when the time is right or a hail Mary is needed.
Any feed back and thoughts on how this will play would be much appreciated.
