I like this list alot because my daemonettes, possessed, and Nero are all I really need for good close combat I really just want to sit back and hammer my opponents but should I drop some points to get indirect fire? I would like to know what you think of this list because my old EC list was nooby and it sucked, the only reason I usually won is becuase I have better strategy then most people, especially people like tau who just shoot at anything but I really want to know what I could do to make this list better. My list I think is great is because you can either sit back in hammer the opponent and counter charge him if he gets to close or get close up with alot of mobile fire to shoot while getting my heavies into position. Is this a good list and a good idea? Please comment and give your opinions!

-The only problem that I have with Nero is that he's too slow. He has no mode of movement (outside of a rhino) to get him into CC. I'd swap Aura for speed because tou can use his IC status to keep him from being shot, and his speed in CC (+ Drugs) to keep him alive. I also reccomend the Doom Siren over Frags for initiative reasons.

-You may want to consider two more sonic blasters, as they can be used with Tank Hunters when you don't move.

-I really hate the "three Main Weapon" Preds becasue they tend to lack mobility, but you may be onto something here with the Blastmaster.

-All in all it looks pretty solid Anarch, my only real beefs (Outside of the Lord) were ones of personal preference. Your Lord's reletive sluggishness may prove his undoing, and I'd give him Speed, a Steed, or Infiltrate to make the best use of him.

Rock on,
Ged of Paragon

I can't really offer much in the way of list analysis, im afraid. i just take what I fancy.

But I will say i like your list, even if some of the units are "spammed".

i do feel that they can take on your opponent without you having to sweat too much.
