    My LGS is starting an escalation league and I decided to branch out from my MAF and play vanilla CA.
    We are starting at 150pts and I have been loosing my mind trying to put a list together. Should I just not worry about having a heavy hitter? Even putting a Umbra in the list seems expensive at this point level.

    If you're going to put something that expensive in a 150 list it should have two wounds, like a Suryat. But there's plenty to make up the space in generic CA. Daturazi for regular orders and pretas and gakis for warbands.

    The best leader for small points / support roles is the Skiavoros: you get a Strategos N2 and a 2 wound model (he has Structure!) for 50 something points, he is also mimetic, and he has a Plasma weapon. He can use the orders himself, or let others use it, and you only go into LoL if the enemy somehow Isolates and kills him (careful with Bakunin troops).

    Then 2x Ikadron and 2xImetron are groovy, 26 points for 4 regular orders.

    Finally, use Daturazis and Unidrones as main troops, but if you pass on the organic meatbags, engineers are the only thing you need to repair them (so, monkey wrenches! XD).

    Sure, it all boils down to how hardcore your meta is. But I would suggest basing it off the onyx starter and a couple of blisters. Going for a charontid Lt. and some low cost cheerleaders could easily make the game unbalanced at low points.
    Depending on if you’re going for vanilla or sectorial you can base it on a starter and progress from there.
    Having Bit and Kiss is a great idea tho, since it gives you the ability to glue/hack opponents ramboes.
    And imo, a unidron link with supportware is more terrifying than a single tough-as-nails target.
    Good luck!

    I am doing vanilla, and went with this list, our mission was Firefight. I won 10-0 with the Noctifer w/ missile launcher doing most of the heavy lifting.
