Free Play, I get to play "Opfor"

An old friend wants to test out a "Tournament" list so I'll be taking as "spoiler" list...

1850 Crimson Fists w/ Eldar allies

Pedro Kantor
Sternguard (10, 4 Combi Plasma, 4 Combi Melta, HF, SGT w/LC/CM Drop Pod)
Sternguard (10, 4 Combi Plasma, 4 Combi Melta, HF, SGT w/LC/CM Drop Pod)
Scout Squad (10, 9 snipers, ML, cloaks)
Scout Squad (10, 9 shotguns, HB)
Thunderfire Cannon

Farseer
Pathfinders (5)
Wraithlord (ML, Scatter Laser)


Still 200 or so points to go...  But potentially 9 scoring units, complete denial of enemy Psyker powers...  REALLY rapid assault.  Easiest way to fill the points would be change the Farseer for Eldrad and bring something like a Land Speeder with MM/HF...  Have to think about it, I think I'd rather play something like a Vindicator...  Have to think about it...

The more I think about it in the long run I think I'll be running either the Storm Raven or a Storm Talon...  Though the changes to the "Escort" rule there make it "less useful" to escort something like say, Scouts...  The Raven or the Talon will be dedicated Air Superiority I think, the Raven really does that fairly well, as long as I am not completely overwhelmed by 5+ fliers...  2-3 it can handle I think...
