Competitive list's I've been refining. I'm in a 2K every other weekend league. The new Guard and more specifically Tempestus-heavy armies are top-tier. Combining the use of spotlights with infantry is a great way to go, especially if you run conscripts, but I've been going Tempestus-heavy with the following list:

2K Brigade (9 CP)

Tempestus Prime (Command Rod)
Tempestus Prime (Command Rod)
Tempestus Prime (Command Rod)

Tempestus Command Squad (x4 Plasma Guns)
Tempestus Command Squad (x4 Plasma Guns)
Tempestus Command Squad (x4 Plasma Guns)

x5 Scions (x2 Plasma guns, Plasma Pistol)
x5 Scions (x2 Plasma guns, Plasma Pistol)
x5 Scions (x2 Plasma guns, Plasma Pistol)
x5 Scions (x2 Plasma guns, Plasma Pistol)
x5 Scions (x2 Plasma guns, Plasma Pistol)
x5 Scions (x2 Plasma guns, Plasma Pistol)

Scout Sentinel (Heavy Flamer, Chainsaw)
Scout Sentinel (Lascannon)
Scout Sentinel (Missile Launcher)

Heavy Weapon Squad (x3 Lascannon)
Heavy Weapon Squad (x3 Lascannon)
Heavy Weapon Squad (x3 Lascannon)

Wyvern
Wyvern

Wyvern
Wyvern

Taurox Prime (Autocannon/Gatling)
Taurox Prime (Autocannon/Gatling)
Taurox Prime (Autocannon/Gatling)
Taurox Prime (Autocannon/Gatling)
Taurox Prime (Autocannon/Gatling)

So far, a modified version (first using elysains with vultures/vendettas as well as Taurox/tempestus, then using cyclops demo vehicles and rapier laser destroyers for the heavy support element before they got nixed on the ability to use sabre platform spotlights in the FAQ, and the list above (modified by WYSIWUG) have brought me 4 straight easy victories vs 4 different players

The strength of the list is the Taurox Prime, with Gatling/Autocannon, which leaves the other units to battle heavy armor. Good use of Take Aim twice (due to Command Rod) to re-roll 1's on overcharged plasma is a powerful thing indeed, and with 9 deep-striking squads, you'll be sure to assassinate rear-lurking IC's for days on end, while the wyvern and Taurox maul horde armies. Worried about a landraider? melee him with a Taurox and prevent him firing as one or two pig-trucks bulldog him all over the map.

Enjoy our time in the spotlight, brothers....they are editing things fast for balance, and I'm sure the Prime will get adjusted. It really is too good.

Very nice list Vraks! I just got home from work and then a movie so I'll give your battle reports a checkout in the morning.

Holy crap Vraks, you are a monster on the field. Those were some damn fine battle reports, what with your list dominating everything it sees!

Thanks! Yes, it's proven a great list Vs all different armies Vs all different foes, resulting in early tablings (or concession before an imminent tabling) each time. So far I'm 5-0 in 8th, and 4 of those are due to the power of IG in this edition. I've to face true ork/nid hordes, though (I've heard horror-stories of ork mobs with 'Da jump' psyker getting into assault turn 1, but I imagine 100 bs 3+/16d6 wyvern shots trolling wounds might counter that in short order... Will have to see, though. Might have a game Vs Dark Angels later today.
