I dont really like canker with anyone other than gaspy. Helldiver or stalker imo. Stalker with 24" range dark guidance and feat seems pretty good in a 35 pt game

Helldivers (take a pair) are insanely good with pSkarre. Think of them as a ticking death clock for your opponent. Even if they do not end up killing their caster, every turn they make will begin with them thinking about how to avoid or deal with the Helldivers. :) Do NOT use them to eat a general infantryman. Save them burrowed for casters, Joe, Eiryss, Etc. As much as I like Scrap Thralls I would not bother at 35pts since you have Stitch Thralls floating about. The poor Siren will just get herself killed running with this crowd.

Pirate Queen Skarre (*6pts)
* Helldiver (3pts)
* Helldiver (3pts)
* Skarlock Thrall (2pts)
Mechanithralls (Leader and 9 Grunts) (5pts)
* 2 Brute Thrall (2pts)
Necrosurgeon & 3 Stitch Thralls (2pts)
Necrosurgeon & 3 Stitch Thralls (2pts)
Satyxis Blood Witches (Leader and 9 Grunts) (6pts)
* Satyxis Blood Hag (2pts)
Satyxis Raiders (Leader and 9 Grunts) (8pts)
* Satyxis Raider Sea Witch (2pts)
Satyxis Raider Captain (2pts)
Saxon Orrik (2pts)

This should deal with the vast majority of other lists you may come across.

zomg moar infantry thx guis.
Having an answer to colossals that doesn't require your feat would be nice, and frankly Diggle's list doesn't have an answer to stormwall period. 2 covering fire templates will kill anything in that army even with the feat up, not to mention its getting shot up. There's no reason not to utilize a good heavy with her. Also cankerworm seems fine, P+S 16 armor piercing, pathfinder, the best grid in the game, AD, stealth. Not to mention he still takes out stuff after or prior to feating.

If you think burning through a colossal is the way to play Cryx, you're going to have a bad time. The opposing caster will be dumping focus into the Stormwall for sure, this leaves them low on defence to your Helldivers. Go around the stormwall, kill the caster, congratulate them on the great centerpiece.

Honestly, taking a 19pt model in a 35 point game vs an asassination army (Cryx) is a very poor idea. It is one of the few times I can see it not being as big of a threat since you are able to so easily ignore it and get around to the juicy bits.

If you plan on going up against a lot of colossals at 35 points and for some reason want to focus on downing it, perhaps Mortenebra with a Slayer swarm would be your best bet. Perhaps Wrong Eye and Snapjaw for their ability to not get shot on the approach and fury to really lay into him while another jack can attack fully loaded as well (another caster of course). pDeneghra and pAsphyxious will definitely be your friends. Withershadow Combine to strip off Arcane Shield, apply debuffs, enjoy.

Mind posting your collection so I know what we have to work with as far as models go?
