BAO List Variants: sDm Kabal "Not Nekkid"


This is the first major variant template. Basically swapping out the Haemonculus with webway, Hellions, and Blasterborn for Farseer, Jetbikes, and Voidravens. If nothing else the list illustrates the options available when we start playing around with points and unit choices while sticking (mostly) to the same template as the first "Nekkid" list. 

Although the balance between scoring power, lance power and poison power is always subject to great scrutiny. Or even flying voidravens vs first turn ravagers vs sneaky blasterborn. The real question of merits to be worked out with this list variant is the Farseer. Is he worth it? Is he a must have? My personal opinion seems to be that the Farseer is of great utility value but generally not worth the sacrifice to troops/lance/poison. What do you think?
