i have 2 lists at 1850 that i've made up and i was basically looking for input from experienced players to help decide which list may be more solid, and why. and criticism on either list to make it better.

list 1

Lord 100
VoD 60
GoF 15
Phylactery 15 190

Lord 100
Orb 40
Phylactery 15 155

10 Warriors 180
10 Warriors 180
10 Warriors 180

10 Immortals 280
10 Immortals 280

4 Destroyers 200
4 Destroyers 200

Total: 1845

List 2

Lord 100
VoD 60
Orb 40
Warscythe 10 210

11 Warriors 180
11 Warriors 180
11 Warriors 180

10 Immortals 280

4 Destroyers 200
4 Destroyers 200

1 Monolith 234
2 Heavy Destroyers 130

Total: 1849

what i know is:
list 2 = slightly higher mobility
list 1 = slightly higher phase out
which would do better at tournament level play what can be changed bout either to make them more consistent?

You're going to want to consolidate the points, GW doesn't like point values for specific stuff listed, but they don't mind a combined point value for the character listed. Also, you may get better replies in Army Lists.

Personally, I prefer list 2. It offers a lot more in terms of mobility, and unlike list 1, has some dedicated anti-tank weaponry. Sure, any gauss weapon can glance, but with the new rules it'll take a while to actually destroy any tank, rather than just stun it turn in turn out :p And, let's face it, list 2 still requires the opponent to kill 31ish models (it's 11pm, my maths isn't good at the best of times - I know, and yet I still play a game that has maths as an integral part - work that out if you can... :p).

I should write more, but I'm tired enough that I'm not even sure what I just wrote made sense :o :angel:

I am going to say list two. First the lord is equiped as I equip my own, the warscythe is a must and the orb. The monolith will allow for you to possibly save those who miss thier WBB rolls. the two groups of destroyers will allow you to flank and give a second squad to make sure they get thier WBB rolls as well.

I generally deep strike my monoliths into the thick of battles so that I can shred the enemy forces. You are gonna wanna destroy the enemies troops as quickly as you can. I have no doubt that you will do good if you can get some practice in with your army before the tournament. Also know your opponents.

yeah, I would agree with list 2.
All around, I think it should perform better as an all-comers list.
