Warmachine: eSorscha - The UBER Solo list and preparing for Steamroller 2012

This is the list I played Wednesday.  It has three of the more hated solo mercs and Joe.


Forward Kommander Sorscha (*6pts)
* Beast-09 (11pts)
* Spriggan (10pts)
* War dog (1pts)
Lady Aiyana & Master Holt (4pts)
Winter Guard Infantry (Leader and 9 Grunts) (6pts)
* Winter Guard Infantry Officer & Standard (2pts)
Eiryss, Angel of Retribution (3pts)
Kovnik Jozef Grigorovich (2pts)
Saxon Orrik (2pts)

The list worked well.  I need to use Eiryss better.  I am too aggressive with Eiryss and need to play her more.

The main issue with this list is that it would suck in the new format.  Two lists are the norm and you can't reuse characters.  Here is what I can transfer to my second list:



Forward Kommander Sorscha (*6pts) 
* Beast-09 (11pts) 
* Spriggan (10pts)
* War dog (1pts)
Lady Aiyana & Master Holt (4pts) 
Winter Guard Infantry (Leader and 9 Grunts) (6pts)
* Winter Guard Infantry Officer & Standard (2pts)
Eiryss, Angel of Retribution (3pts) 
Kovnik Jozef Grigorovich (2pts) 
Saxon Orrik (2pts)

So it basically guts my list.   So I need to start a new list.

Here is a go

Kommander Sorscha (*5pts)
* Destroyer (9pts)
* Juggernaut (7pts)
Widowmakers (Leader and 3 Grunts) (4pts)
Winter Guard Field Gun Crew (Leader and 2 Grunts) (2pts)
Winter Guard Infantry (Leader and 5 Grunts) (4pts)
* Winter Guard Infantry Officer & Standard (2pts)
Widowmaker Marksman (2pts)
Cylena Raefyll & Nyss Hunters (Cylena and 9 Grunts)

How does this go with the requirements for a list?

Generally in every list I like to have at least one answer to the following:
-Something to deal with high armor (AP, spell) - Lots of combined fire
-Something to deal with mass infantry (some sort of AOE) - Grape shot and a few blast markers
-Something to deal with high defense (combined melee attack, spell) - Nyss Hunters and the Jacks should doField Gun works well against targets at ranged.
-Something to deal with stealth (spell, spray) - Nyss Hunters
-Something to pick off solos (long range weapon, solo hunter) - Widowmakers and WM Marks man
-Something to deal with incorporeal targets (magic attacks) - Sorscha :(
-Something to deal with difficult terrain (piper, spell) - Nyss are unaffected but everything else is

4.5 out of 7 isn't too bad.  Any one who wants to give advice is more than welcome.  I'm not the best list builder.
