Hive Crone [8 PL, 161pts]: Stinger Salvo


Battle Plan: Flyers tag dangerous ranged units turn 1 preventing them from shooting and being a nuisance turn 1. Warriors will advance and pound away with massed firepower.

This lis's firepower drops
60 + 9D6 shots @ S5 -1 (bucketloads of heavy bolter equiv)
4D3 S8 -2 (battlecannon equiv)

Heavy armor units may be a problem (that i am hoping the flyers can solve) other armies I think i should do pretty well against.

You absolutely NEED to give those warriors Boneswords. Even if that means dropping a couple of Warriors. Warriors are better at melee than shooting, and
(3 S4 attacks at AP-2 hitting on 2s thanks to the Prime's)
If you're opponent manages to tie up even a single unit, he's taken a huge chunk of firepower out of your list. Make him pay for attacking you in melee.
