How about this list for your perusal (Might be a bit crazy as it has no gargoyles...)

--------------------------------------
crazy scourge - 1248pts
Scourge - 10 launch assets

SR10 Vanguard battlegroup (205pts)
1 x Akuma - 205pts - H
   + Fleet Champion (40pts, 3AV)

SR10 Line battlegroup (190pts)
2 x Yokai - 190pts - M

SR8 Line battlegroup (234pts)
1 x Chimera - 105pts - M
3 x Djinn - 129pts - L

SR10 Line battlegroup (280pts)
1 x Hydra - 140pts - M
1 x Hydra - 140pts - M

SR3 Pathfinder battlegroup (126pts)
3 x Scylla - 126pts - L

SR9 Pathfinder battlegroup (193pts)
2 x Nickar - 44pts - L
1 x Chimera - 105pts - M
2 x Nickar - 44pts - L
------------- dflist.com -------------

Plan is to win the air by playing aggresively and protecting the chimera's who hang back till T3/4.
The scylla are in the low sr group to combat low sr enemy trying to get to one of my chimera's early. The Djinn will fly to atmo t 2 then kill something t3. Lots of shooty stuf (Akuma, Yokai, Scylla, Djinn) and 10 lovely scourge launch.

However, may lose ground game...! What do you think?

--------------------------------------
crazy scourge - 1244pts
Scourge - 5 launch assets

2 x Yokai - 190pts - M
2 x Gargoyle - 64pts - L
2 x Gargoyle - 64pts - L

2 x Strix - 180pts - M
3 x Scylla - 126pts - L

1 x Hydra - 140pts - M
   + Fleet Enslaver (20pts, 2AV)
2 x Gargoyle - 64pts - L
2 x Gargoyle - 64pts - L

SR3 Pathfinder battlegroup (129pts)
3 x Djinn - 129pts - L

SR6 Pathfinder battlegroup (171pts)
2 x Nickar - 44pts - L
1 x Nickar - 22pts - L
3 x Charybdis - 105pts - L
------------- dflist.com -------------

Strix, Yokai and Djinn all pick a target each and try and eliminate it. Scylla for fire support. Strix group can active scan if needed. no chimera but 9 gargs. Charybdis to bombard a sector i don't try and contest that enemy has comitted to heavily. Hydra sits back and does it's magic. Could it work?! Could take a chimera instead of 3 gargs but pushes up the sr of the battlegroups.

Sorry Chris... PHR might be able to get away with running just two troopships, but I can't see this list winning the ground at all. Swap the two Yokai for 6 Gargoyles, and you'll be back on track Wink

This is better but 2 Yokai and 2 Strix for 4/5 cruisers is mega fragile- you'll struggle to score any CLs. I'm loving your weird lists though Chris Wink
