Iíd say your second list looks more balanced.

I personally donít tend to go strike craft heavy in a IN fleet because thereís a good number of factions that can more efficiently do it than you and have points left over for dedicated brawlers.

The Emperor class is an amazing battleship and a worthy candidate for flagship in any situation.

Explorer Tau and Chaos come to mind with the Explorer battleship and Devastation come to mind. Right now the bulk of your fleet is carriers that donít really benefit from getting into gun slugfests that keep them from reloading. 2x Tyrants and 2x Carnages are a good basis for your gunline.
