Coming out of my corner swinging

Three lists.
Two unconventional lists and one noncompetitive caster.
Lets look at them, shall we?

[Ahnuld_Voice]
Who is your warcaster and what does (s)he do?
[That's rough on the throat...damn...]

35points [ Goreshade the Bastard ] WC:1 WJ:4 U:4 S:4
Goreshade the Bastard(*6points)
* Stalker(4points)
* Stalker(4points)
* Stalker(4points)
* Stalker(0points)
Cylena Raefyll & Nyss Hunters(7points)(6models)
Bane Thralls(5points)(6models)
Bane Thralls(5points)(6models)
Bane Thralls(5points)(6models)
Bane Lord Tartarus(4points)
Machine Wraith(1points)
Machine Wraith(1points)
Machine Wraith(1points)

     This is the generic take all comers list.  With +1 to the starting roll, Advance Move for the Banes, and Advance Deployment for the Stalkers this is much faster than it appears.  Its stealth heavy, responds to enemy deployment, and basically starts 15 inches into the field.
     There's a lot of discussion on whether or not to go first or second.  This one likes to go second to take advantage of that extra 3 inches and be at the halfway point on the board in turn 2.
There are a few lists that skew heavily against it - Gatormen Shamen and Alexia come to mind.


35points [ Scaverous ] WC:1 WJ:2 U:3 S:8
Scaverous(*5points)
* Nightwretch(4points)
* Nightwretch(4points)
Blackbane's Ghost Raiders(6points)(6models)
Bile Thralls(5points)(6models)
Skarlock Thrall(2points)
Pistol Wraith(3points)
Pistol Wraith(3points)
Machine Wraith(1points)
Machine Wraith(1points)
Madelyn Corbeau, Ordic Courtesan(2points)
The Withershadow Combine(5points)(3models)
Warwitch Siren(2points)

     Warjacks and assassination vectors abound.  The math says this can pop a caster on turn 1 just outside their deployment zone.  My biggest concerns with this list are Colossals and character jacks.



35points [ Witch Coven ] WC:1 WJ:6 U:1 S:6
Witch Coven(*5points)
* Nightwretch(4points)
* Nightwretch(4points)
Iron Lich Overseer(3points)
* Slayer(4points)
* Slayer(4points)
Iron Lich Overseer(3points)
* Slayer(4points)
* Slayer(4points)
Bile Thralls(5points)(6models)
Machine Wraith(1points)
Machine Wraith(1points)
Machine Wraith(1points)
Warwitch Siren(2points)

I still haven't figured out this list.  Medium advance with an interesting beatstick, but I Must play midfield support of I lose the coven.
I lose the coven a lot.


Good luck to everyone!
