Doesn't sound very interesting gamewise. Effective, no doubt.

5 Spinners, 5 Scouts, thats all you need. If you have Wave
Serpents in the detachment, they will most probably do nothing in the
whole game because the artillery will be in the behind all combat lines.
The above detachment will deploy very well and most likely will remain
stationary for the rest of the game, firing from overwatch.
