While beautiful in it's simplicity, what does it do? Do you just Deep Strike the Monoliths on top of objectives and hope that it is Big Guns Never Tire?

lots of AV14 with a cover save (skimmers)

Stalkers for getting TL

Warriors in a Ark to glance stuff to death in a round/shoot the bejusus out of infantry

And the everpresent OL on barge.

What DOESN'T it do? Cook me breakfast?

I kill all the things with impunity :-)

I probably deploy the Monoliths, in most cases. Three S8 AP3 Large blast ordinance shots, sometimes twin-linked, is kinda cool. Everything is armoured, also kinda cool (still, as it's all AV 13/14 with 3 or 4 hull points).

One might need to use the portals to put warriors on an objective late game, but it's more about killing all the things and not dying.

Nice thing about a surfboard lord now, assaulting a big unit isn't so bad after your ride has popped, as you can just issue a challenge and fight only one model, with T5 and a 3++ save, that's not so scary.

I don't know about you, but I have found the Barge has been under performing for me the past few games I have run it in. I am probably going to retire mine for a match or two and see what happens.

I probably wouldnt count our game. I doubt youll run into that many terminators with most other lists.

You can't just chrage anything, especially space marines with their Krak grenades. Gotta pick something that's like... S4.

What're you doing with it? Can't just fly up to the bad guys anymore :-) Gotta move 12", Flat out 18" to a target location close to 2 or 3 targets of opportunity, then on turn two, start executing things.

You shouldn't get popped unless you get assaulted. You still get your 4+ save, 5+ if you don't flat out.

The infiltrating Chosen squad has been quite the thorn in my side, especially if they go before I do.
