Black Legion vs. Custodes, Adeptus Mechanicus, and Scions

Greetings from the Eye.  

 

I have a game tomorrow using my Black Legion army against an opponent who is bringing an army of Adeptus Custodes, Adeptus Mechanicus, and Tempestus Scions.  I have never faced any of those armies before, let alone all three.  I was hoping that some of the good folks on this forum could provide me with some tips on what to expect, how to prioritize targets, tactical advice, etc.  My opponent says that he is bringing a casual, non-tournament list, and I have made a list that I think is also relatively casual, but I still don't want to waste my time and lose in the first round or second round because I don't really know what those armies can do. 

 

Here is my list for tomorrow, if anyone has any advice or tips I would appreciate it:

He’s going to outshoot you with the AdMech. Very likely there’s a possibility he will have three Skorpius tanks which will be a big problem for your list. 
 

if he’s a good player, you’re going to hav to get through those Custodes to reach that fire base, keeping in mind the potential for tempestus deep strikes. 
 

your Oblits can chew up Custodes but I don’t like that you have no vehicles and your havocs will be priority one. You’ll, have to work to keep those havocs clicking thorough the game. 
 

let us know how it goes. Hope it’s a fun game.
