At 2k, I can fit a Thunderhawk (with d-cannon), two storm talons, and a storm raven into a list. This looks great on the table. By the rule of cool we may have already won. On the other hand, not a lot of points are left for the rest of the army. The remainder is spent on three full tactical squads lead by tigerius. (there is a rhino thrown in there to act as a bunker for the first turn).
In terms of game play, two squads are deployed along with Tigerius. The last squad is split across the thunderhawk and storm raven. Even using the lighter aircraft to provide cover, I think the Thunderhawk would get blown out of the air by massed wave serpents.
Is there a viable list including a thunderhawk? The variant to this list is to put a Death Star in the Death Star, and rely on scouts to hide on the ground. I am not sure either list works.
