Looking cool. Will there be a full bat rep? Did you find any units were at the sweet spot for configuration, or under/over done?

I was pretty happy with the list overall.

The chain axes were superb against the tyranids. I guess the cultists and the blood letters were kinda pointless 'cause they were shot up as soon as they became visible to the 'nids. Of course that kept his zoanthropes busy so I suppose they fulfilled their role.

The Gift of Mutation though I think should go. Maybe it was just the rolls I got but it didn't really do anything. The CSM champ with didn't get out of the Rhino so it was a loss and the Chaos Lord was already at a higher initiative than anything he faced... I bet they could be fun and/or useful but weren't in this particular game.

The full battle report is coming soon. It'll have more context, me thinks.
