Originally I did want to add a super Wraith unit and a Destroyer Lord along with larger Warrior units who would be walking on foot. All these units I wanted to add made the list just under 2,500 points. I guess you could switch out units and throw these in, though I do not see Scarabs so much these days so I am going to keep them.

So you have six av13 vehicles (two are walkers), the Ghost Arks move up side on with the Stalkers on either flank. The ABs come behind and shoot through the ribs of the Ghost Ark - this may give cover to enemy units. The Triarch Stalkers give twin-linked goodness the the sheer amount of dakka the Warriors and Ghost Arks can knock out - that would be 80 gauss shots!

The Stalkers primary target will be high av such as Land Raiders etc, as long as the Stalkers hit then the gauss will get twin-linked.

The ABs will focus on transport vehicles and will murder infantry which will allow the Scarabs/Spyders to follow up and finish them off.

Spyders and Scarabs make a mini Scarab farm. The Spyders will take it in turns to boost each swarm or just focus on a depleted swarm. It is best these either support the av13 phalanx and advance as counter assault units. If you do not fancy that then peel them off down a flank and let them tackle stuff; keep in mind that the Scarabs will out run the Spyders, so the Spyders will need to play catch up or just keep the Spyders lurking about to repair vehicles - there is points left to add a fabricator claw array on a single Spyder.

While all the above is happening the Night Scythes can provide air support and the Immortals and Cryptek can bail out and slag static ranged vehicles i.e Predators or Hammerheads - these way there's low chances of returning troop fire coming in their face. These units are best to grab late objectives or get linebreaker etc.
