All those beautiful new Vassal units! Also good use for the evil salad chopping monsters as skitter tank stand-ins

What's working in the nu-skitarii and what needs some adjustments? Very excited about this list

Yeah those bombers!!! Cant really cap them with 2 shots on 4s and a 4+ save. Best thing to do was try and get some blasts on them but my ground AA didn't last long.

As for the list. It was fun but it felt like it lacked a lot. My terrible playing didn't help. Dave didn't like the Master of Machines as it can be exploited which I had to agree after trying it. We only played it to apply to its own formation. Thoughts were to just bring back units when it rallied/regrouped. Another was the lack of AT from anything other then the Dune crawlers. Ideas were to add in Titans. Since the theme of the list is a expectorating force and not a full fledged army I'm thinking to just add Warhounds and Reavers. Another idea was reducing knights to 2-4. I didn't want to bloat the list to much but should they just have the basic Paladin, Errant and Wardens? Could they have their own line of Mechanicus Knights in the list?

Anyway these were the thoughts of changes so far.

Vanguard Maniple - From 10 to 12 in size and upped in points.
Skitarii Vanguard - Radium Carbine to small arms and added Ark Rifle for some better firepower.
Kataphrons move to 15cm from 20cm
Sicarian Infiltrators/Sicarian Ruststalkers - From 5+ Armour to 4+
Skorpius Dunerider/Skorpius Disintegrator - 30cm move
Skorpius Disintegrator - Upped gun
Skorpius Dunerider/Termite Assault Drill - only 15 points each now.
Added Warhounds and Reavers
Knights in pairs (Maybe have their own line of Knights)

I can gig those ideas. Personally the idea of skitarii and knights is more inspiring than the typical tired list+titans

I played a 2000 points match lately where I had THREE hunters on the field and still didn't manage to knock out a single Phoenix!
