Default 2000 Swarm BT, over 100 T4 models!

Ok, I've been pondering this for a little while to use at tournies(dont know how it will do, but hey! Cant kill me for trying!) But Houloutloud got me(with his deathwing topic) to make this list, so, without any furthur adu, here it is!

HQ-
Emperor's Champion, Accept any Challenge - 140
Marshal - Artificer armor, Holy Orb, storm bolter, power sword, frags, auspex - 158
Master of Sanctity - Artificer armor, bolt pistol, holy orb, auspex, frags - 144

TROOPS-
5 20 man squads melta and power fist - 285 each, 1425 total
1 7 man las/plas - 133 (points, didnt want another 20 man, or CC, and I wanted to try to kill some tanks before I got there)

So, by my calculations this comes out to an even 2000 points, any C&C is welcome and appreciated!

Tanks are going to murder this list.

You've got a lot of bodies, and thanks to righteous zeal you can cross the board really quickly but overall that won't help you much unless your fighting a very static foe.

Anyone with a serious, or even moderate amount of armour and maneuverability can just run away from you with ease. That one las/plas squad won't last past the first turn and after that your powerfists and melta guns just won't be up to the task of anti tank.

I love the concept I just feel it'll suffer from "Rock, paper, scissors"

Also where do you find 2000 point tournaments? Most are in the 1500-1750 range.

Around here they generally vote for them on the forums, theres at least 1 2000 point Tourney around here once a year, and that's in October. And its not overly hard for me to switch up this list for lower points. I drop 1 squad I'm in the 1750 range, two or the Chaplain and I can do 1500. Still that's a lot of T4 models. And I know what the weekness are, and I'm willing to take the risks. If I deploy correctly I can make it so they do not have room to run, for if they do they're going to have to risk a Death or Glory type of thing.

Cool, if you feel you can counter the effects of a vehicle heavy/mech army then go for it!

Against something like a gun line you could deliver a lot of hurt just by having to many bodies to drop before you hit. Once you hit its just a matter of rolling up the battle line.

That being said I know for a fact my tournament level mech tau army would rip this to shreds. Not trying to be cocky or argumentative, but I've fought similar forces with my tau and enjoyed lots of success each time. And in those cases they had significantly more anti tank power.

However you're the best judge of your local play environment and rival army composition and style.

Also this list would look absolutely fantastic on the board and be very intimidating and characterful!
