A bunch of our casters would like some decent light infantry. Unfortunately the theme just sucks. I feel like you'd be better off running out of theme. Fyanna2 is the only one I'd consider it with. Her feat and Iron Flesh makes a big unit of Swordsmen with UA, Warlords and Incubi into a hilarious blob. Unfortunately the beasts just suck and you don't get much free.

I’d be interested to try lylyth2 in it with raptors, azrael, Zuriel, and a bolt thrower. I’m always tempted to include a unit of nyss archers with a hellion to plink down a heavy but that’s probably more jank than actually effective
Aside from that I’ve tried a Rhyas list that felt okay and theorized some lists for Saeryn and Bethayne (the Saeryn list was including the CID hermit of hengehold to give her a damage buff, otherwise the list is just too niche)

I think Kallus2 actually wants to be in this theme, raptors and the character nephilims are great for him, and the boltthrower is good for enabling overrun versus anything but beast/jack spam, so that 50pt beastloadout you see so much in this theme is actually what he wants.
I've been thinking about the list bellow for a while now.
18 raptors 15 swordmasters / hexhunters 0 UA 10 min croak raiders
Not to sure about the full list, there are some things I want to try.
Edit: I wanted a list that could both use overrun and battlelust, which brought me to raptors. It's a lategame melee unit that will really fire up under battlelust ones the need for overrun has passed. In the meanwhile swordmen can do what swordmen do, or hexhunters can be really troublesome if for some reason you can employ battlelust early.
