Bad ass! I like it. Hard hitting. Have you played with it yet? I'm interested in seeing if the void shields are worth it.

That list screams "Defensive Strongpoint". I like it, but it's a little short on units overall to be effective in missions where you need to cross the field... but this doesn't seem like an "all comers" list... it's looks way more "themed concept". Verdict - I like it, and it would probably be fun to play against.

What did you give the Immortals? Gauss or Tesla?

That Transcendant C'Tan is going to be hard as crap to kill... :)

I have not gotten to play this yet, but would love to try it out against what I assume you're running (Azrael + invisible guard blob? 8)).

How do you figure this is a defensive strong point? I see it as more "robo-balls to the wall" aggressive. The void generator is there to protect me from alpha strikes, otherwise everything else runs right at you except for the immortals (gauss). I figure an 800 point ctan should tie somebody up for a few turns, unless they have a warhound or 3 knights.
