Interesting how one is acceptable but the other is not.

One of them has a powerful organisaion behind him, is considered "loyal" (as far as you can use the term on any DE), is not constantly using narcotics, is experienced in warfare, is quite intelligent AND is an Eldar.
The other one is considered alien scum and has a shanty in Sec Maegra and is only trusted as a bodyguard because the Archon deems him too stupid to betray him.

Can you spot the difference?

Our disagreement comes to two points:

Actually only one point.
Your first point.
I have read a lot of books on DE (including some where they where just antagonists) and every codex since their first appearance.
There is no "organised military of the Dark Eldar". This does not exist.
Its not that they "cant see through a raid without the Archon,...". Its more that they thin "hmm... if I kill my mates and deliver the Slaves to the Kabal of the sunken Eye I would get way more reward out of it... deal!"
They are fully capable of doing the raid. But its a big gamble if they return to your Archon after the raid. They are selfish to the core. There is NO loyality at all. Society "works" because of oppression, blackmail, bribe and threats. EVERYBODY wants to climb the ladder. You have Archon regularly killing off their most successful and "loyal" lieutenants because they could pose a threat sometime in the future. Archon Nyos Yllitian had a huge problem finding a good successor because he previously killed all promising and aspiring family members.

Archon Yllithian also had a Kabal filled with those loyal enough to him that they were willing to betray Asdrubael Vect in his name.

See how there is room for more than one narrow view of the species? No? Sigh. Well, OK. We shall agree to disagree.

Whilst the fluff arguments are very interesting, if nobody has anything to add to the actual rules argument then I think this thread might be heading for closure.

Nothing to add Count. Don't even consider there to BE an argument. Wink

Sorry read the majority of this. But something that hasn't been mentioned or my sslyth brain can't understand is. If taking a court of the archon, does the archon need to be in that unit. Because if not that could be a unit with a poisoned sting.

... What?
I hope i understand your question, the Archon doesn't have to be in the same unit as the court, he doesn't even have to be in the Army at all, as any part of the Court can be an HQ, and one is all you need.
The Archon can be in the same unit as the Court if you want that, though, but as i said he doesn't have to.
