The list is a compromise between firepower for anti-tank and anti-infantry purposes, blob-squads for ojectives claiming and the two Vendettas for some air superiority. I doubt it's totally optimised but frankly it's supposed to be a fun tournament and these are the models I like, so they're in!

  1. It's not completely optimised as you say, but would do well at any event, but most importantly it's got a bit of everything in.

    Let us know how the Colossus & Medusa get on. They seem great on paper, but I don't often see them on the battlefield.
