List 1: 12 CP, 18 drops. Hive guard to deal with big stuff, dakkafexes for infantry, CC tyrant and old one eye smash stuff in CC. Everything is -1 to hive due to malanthrope or the Kraken relic and all the dakkafexes have a 2+ save due to Jorg. I used this on a razorback spam list with a few black knights and 1 predator and he gave up on turn 4.

List 2 is in your face-16 drops. All the Jorg DS in turn 1 for a cost of many 6 CP of the 9 but the neruthrope can walk up. Dakkagaunts fire twice to clear fodder, or hive guard fire twice to pop bigger targets. Then its 40 genestealers in our face turn 1 9 inches away with a -1 to hit, 3+ save, 5++ and maybe a 5+ FNP. Plus heavy bolters from the raveners.

List 2 does sound like the superior list, stealer's and alpha. But I will put my vote on list one.

The versatility combined with agression can deal with opponents incase you don't get first turn and brownie points for Old one eye. I still love him.
