At the suggestion of mordoten, ACs post here with: the list you need playtested, how many playtests and how many groups. A quick sentence or two on certain situations/builds to look in to would be helpful too.

Onachus needs 6 more play tests from one group other than StMs or mine.

WE-heavy lists would be helpful (maxing out at the 1/3 WE) as would Harridan spam.

Looking for 1 more group to get involved.

Playtest:
Defiler spam (they are a core formation).
Ordinatus Medrengard + Terminators in the same list.

Cheers,
Steve.

As far as I know I'm the only person playing Ordo Xenos, so any playtests would be appreciated.

Hey Dwarf Supreme, send consul avenging angel a message, he's pushing to get EUK to work on it and I think he has a SoB force, he might br willing to test stuff for you :)

All of the AM lists need testing, but in order of importance:

Skitarii: This list has had the most flux this year and I'd like to see some battle reports outside of my own tests to get us to a place where we can lock down what needs work and what's good. Specifically, tests with Robots, Sagitarii, and transport minorus.

AMTL: I didn't place this at the top since it's been stable for quite some time and we haven't quite been able to get things together for approved status. With the release of the eUK list and some lingering issues with the fun factor and operation of the list, I've become concerned that we are pushing a list to Approved just for the sake of getting it approved. I'd like to see us review the list more in light of the eUK changes and see if we can adjust to make the list more fun and playable.

Cataphractii: This is the bottom of the priority for AM lists. It's the newest and least stable so while a few tests to gauge where things are at would be appreciated, concentration on the other AM lists would be a higher priority.

I would like groups to concentrate on Squat for the immediate future followed by Tyranids. Lets get these lists approved guys.

On my immediate lists, there are some small areas the need looking at, but nothing that needs doing n the short term. So again test the Squat list people.

For myself, I'd like to get Saim-Hann and Alaitoc in the bag. Each needs playtests from multiple groups, though the changes made were fairly minimal.

After that we can work on Ulthwe and Iyanden.

I'd like to see:

Developmental lists moving to Approved
Blood Angels - Needs probably two more groups to play/batrep and the current group to batrep.
Space Wolves: Needs one more group to play/batrep.
Raven Guard: Probably needs one group to give some current batreps before it's pretty much complete. It was left in a good state before Neal "pulled the pin."
Black Templars: recently picked up by GlynG but needs 2-3 new groups once Glyn makes changes.

Experimental lists moving to Developmental
Dark Angels: Needs 3 groups to play/batrep or it needs an overhaul to get people interested. Which I know AoC was looking at but he has again dropped off the radar.
Iron Hands: Needs 1-2 groups more to play/batrep
Imperial Fists needs a sub-AC to steer it out of infancy as Frogbear is currently Unobtainium.
Raptors: saw some work but has languished. If Jimmy Z isn't interested anymore it needs a new subbie or ditch it/fan list
Apocrypha of Skaros: I have yet to see a game with it. If SK isn't interested any longer - ditch it/fan list
Grey Knights: now apparently part of the Ordos remit.
Minotaurs: Was GlynG's baby but has languished. If he's no longer interested - ditch it/fan list
Siege Assault Vanguard: Have never seen the light of day. ditch it/fan list

Where do the tyranid lists sit? Onachus developmental and leviathan experimental?

Personally, I'm more interested in the leviathan list but I can proxy a few slugs if the onachus list just needs a push. I'm guessing that if the later swarm rules from the onachus list stick, in an ideal world these will be back ported onto the leviathan list?

Yes and yes. If we can get approval on the main list we start working on another or two.

Chaos
BLACK LEGION - currently stable, just keep playing them
WORLD EATERS - settled and just need playtesting to push them to approved
EMPERORS CHILDREN - rebooted by CptPiett need playtesting to get momentum behind it
THOUSAND SONS - need testing to push them forward
RED CORSAIRS - like WE stable and settled just need breadth of testing to get them approved
IRON WARRIORS - as Onyx has said going great need 1 more group to test them
DEATH GUARD- I'm hoping to get a reboot of them up this month, so testing and input then would be great
LATD - MikeT is experimenting with a redux of the list, testing needed to see if the approach is worth pursuing

In the Marines lists I'd really like to see focus on moving the Space Wolves, Raven Guard and Blood Angels into approved. They are right there and just need to get a little attention.

I've purposely put the Raptors Ambush list on the back burner so that more focus can be put on the lists that are close to finished (though I have the feeling its probably stable provided some attention to the off board reserves rules is made to confirm. Iron Hands was getting pretty stable for general use but some last minute R&D was put forward that Orton, Uvenlord and myself are playing with. Deployment of the list has been known to cause spontaneous warp rifts.

However for completness:
Iron Hands:
-Testing on Bionics special rule.
-Spamming Veteran Officer characters

Raptors:
-Balance with off board reserves (Raptors deploy their armor from off board once the trap is sprung to balance the hidden ambush units)
-Usefulness of Raptor only corner deployments (they can use corners forcing the opponent to use the standard layout to represent picking the terrain for the ambush)

Locally I'm going to focus on the BA and try to get some traction against Codex Marines, Steel Legion, and Eldar. The big question there is what needs the most focus (and if transporters are getting added or not)
