I took a look at my list when I tried to fit in the Kraken and discovered some room for improvement. Cankerworm drains a lot of resources before dying but he’s not really a threat to anything and most people ignore him unless they have nothing better to do. A while back I brought Erebus a couple of times and I found that he was lacking threat range but with no better choice available I’ll give him another couple of tries and see if playing him more aggressively (with Machine Wraith charge blockers) will change things (the one time he did work though… 16 kills in one round with Ravager and Reroll up).

The models I’ve removed are Orin Midwinter (anti-stealth), Rorsh & Brine (Anti-Heavies), a Machine Wraith, and the Cankerworm (charge blocking). Rorsh & Brine were changed to Wrong Eye & Snapjaw as they’re hard pressed to handle heavies without debuffs (in a pDeneghra list I’d take R&B every time), and the three other models were combined into Erebus. Wrong Eye & Snapjaw also fit the list better since they can avoid a lot of punishment and keep pushing forward with the rest of the list while R&B needs to commit quickly or be shot to death.
Reinforcements: I simply cannot find something I think will work well as reinforcements. I’ve gotten some suggestion over at the PP forum and I’ve decided to try Blackbane’s Ghost Raiders and a Machine Wraith. This option isn’t meant to clear and hold the zone but to rush his flanks while leaving the Machine Wraith to threaten or contest.
