Potential List Idea

Ok, so off the bat this list is purely based on wargear staying exactly the same it is, and pts being the same etc etc. So very very unlikely. But still.... in that awesome but unlikely chance....

How does it work?
Well, its all based on fear. In this current edition its either not effective at all (quite often) or devestatingly powerful (try these tricks on guard and its just plain funny. Same with chaos).
The idea is pretty much every unit that can cause fear or damage based on fear (soulfright for instance) does so. The only reason the kabalites arent is because i find a splinter cannon a bit more useful, especially if damage will also kill units. The haemonculus formations all give negative modifiers to leadership, as does the archon, and the visarch forces enemies to use the lowest leadership. Combined, a good soulfright attack usually means they take their leadership test on -2 (or -3 if you count being 1 lower from visarch). Wheras the one use only but now potentially devestating archangel of pain will cause a leadership test if maxed out at -4, or -5 if you include the lowest leadership shenanigans. This is amazing, and should be devastating. One can only hope in 8th this kind of tactic is rewarded.
