I find it hard to fit in all the solos I want in the list, what are people's first reflex when cutting on the support, I find that more often than not I end up cutting a morrowan archon first. Alexia2 just adds too much scenario presence to cut, gabriel throne is a key support piece and the thamarite archon are the closest thing to a caster attachement but also want to do some work, hence the redundancy on them, that leaves the morrowan archon to be cut, well that's my reasoning behind that choice.
What would you guys cut first to include the units you want to include in the list.
The idea is pretty simple: very high DEF and annoying models, with a lot of Dodge/Riposte shenanigans. Only one unit though, the Jakes+Gallant combo is pretty expensive. But man, DEF 15 Gallant, +2 from the Morrowan Archon, and +2 from Zerkova's clouds, that looks like a pain to deal with.
My original Zerkova1 lists were pretty comparable to those above. I was going to try a slightly different BG with a Buccaneer and/or Avenger this week. Watcher seems like a really cool spell and I like the idea of being able to enforce the zone around Zerkova with a ranged knockdown weapon.
Talon or Grolar might be okay Watchers too with their melee attacks.
Edit: Grolar is combat action only for the KD, so not Grolar
I have played 2 games with this list and 2 with the hermit in exchange for 3 priests.

So far I am enjoying this list but haven’t fully figured out how to pilot it. I am not used to single wound infantry so I am finding them very squishy. But with zerkova’s clouds and feat they can be effectively delivered. The list is very accurate, hits hard enough for most opponents (unless you are trying to crack feat buffed armor). I really like the 6 priests for triggering vengeance on the units while protecting the key solos. And have tried the list with 3 priests and you could make it work but I like the version with 6 a lot better. Sadly I usually play against construct heavy armies so the blood bound doesn’t come into play as often as I would like.
The opponent really has to spoonfeed this one to you with walking and ending within 6'' of both the toros and Zerkova1 and not engaging the Toros. So yeah it's possible, but any halfway decent player won't trigger the countercharge even if they don't have the choice to trigger watcher. That doesn't mean I wouldn't field toros in flames, the toros in one heck of a good jack. Too bad they are back order pretty and it's next to impossible to find one.

Resolutes with Awe, cloud, and set defense are going to be pretty resistant to charges with BPs to take shots and provide Vengeance and if they make it into combat even better.
Just for fun, I put together a Z1 Morrow force to pair with a Z2 (lolwut) Thamarite force. The Z1 list I think has some legs to it, the Z2 list is basically all in assassination, all the time since there are a limited number of Thamarite models.
