Default 1,500pt Corsair list [TOdex Playtest]

Here's the list for playtesting. Naturally, I've tried to have a nice variation in units.

HQ:
Pirate Prince Dra'Tuisich-Novae:
Dra'Tuisich-Novae.
Retinue:
10 Cobras.
Malefactor with Riveblades, Digi-weapons, Cobra Armour, Focus.
Leviathan with Bright Lance and Spirit Stones.
493pts.

ELITES:

Ghostwalker Squad:
Two Ghostwalkers with Switch-Grip Catapult, Power Weapon, Close Combat Weapon and Shuriken Cannon.
Ghostwalker with Switch-Grip Catapult, Power Weapon and Shuriken Cannon.
137pts

TROOPS:

Serpent Squad:
8 Serpents with Switch-Grip Catapults and Carapace Armour.
1 Serpent with Power Fist and Carapace Armour.
1 Serpent with Power Weapon and Carapace Armour.
Prefector with Switch-Grip Catapult, Power Blades and Carapace Armour.
Leviathan transport with Eldar Missile Launcher and Spirit Stones.
260pts.

Dragon Squad:
8 Dragons with Long-barrelled Catapults and Carapace Armour.
2 Dragons with Shrieker Cannon and Carapace Armour.
140pts.

Heavy Support:

Mockingbird Squadron:
Three Mockingbirds with Vibrocannon.
270pts.

Wraithknights:
One Assassin class, one Mauler Class.
200pts.

Total: 1,500pts.


Well, that's the list. Let's see how she fares...

Decent list, flattered at Novae's inclusion, but I think he looses individual effectiveness if attached to a squad - his forte is armour-sniping. If you move the Cobras to Elites you have two units that can work together but can be more versatile alone.

Perfect utility unit - they can lay down fire at close-medium range and then slug it out in assault. With their Steathene rule, perhaps this unit would best be suited to holding terrain with no direct LOS to most of the enemy.

Serpent Squad:
8 Serpents with Switch-Grip Catapults and Carapace Armour.
1 Serpent with Power Fist and Carapace Armour.
1 Serpent with Power Weapon and Carapace Armour.
Prefector with Switch-Grip Catapult, Power Blades and Carapace Armour.
Leviathan transport with Eldar Missile Launcher and Spirit Stones.
260pts.
Very effective as a close combat unit... if you had the points, a Malefactor with Focus would ratchet up this squads' killyness significantly.

Quote:
Dragon Squad:
8 Dragons with Long-barrelled Catapults and Carapace Armour.
2 Dragons with Shrieker Cannon and Carapace Armour.
140pts.
Interesting close-range firepower unit.

Quote:
Mockingbird Squadron:
Three Mockingbirds with Vibrocannon.
270pts.
That's a nightmarishly nasty unit... gonna love to see what it does to the enemy!

Quote:
Wraithknights:
One Assassin class, one Mauler Class.
200pts.
Getting the Assassin into combat might be a problem, as is getting the Mauler into range... however, requiring much more finesse than their Craftworld big brothers is a mark of this list, I think. And of course, when you do get into range... ouch!

Who're you playtesting it against?

Let my Stormtroopers give it a try! ;D

Remember, the Retinue doesn't have to be led by the officer.
