PostSubject: Venom and Wyches   Wed Jan 28 2015, 01:14

Im fairly new to the game, and im making my first list with DE for a local escalation league, so this is probably a super obvious/basic question: For the 500pt week I am trying 2x Venom with 2 squads of 5 Wyches embarked on them with a Succubus as my HQ. What I am wanting to do is attach the Succubus to a Wych squad and embark them all for transport, but from what I understand due to minimum squad sizes and transport capability of a Venom, I can't actually do this.

Do I need to embark a 9 man squad and the Succubus on a Raider? If I do that I can't get heavy weapons for my Kabalite Warrior squads (s) if I split them up into the Venoms instead.

Any suggestions? Right now the list is

Succubus HQ
2x 5 man Wych squads
1x 10 man Warrior squad
1x Raider
2x Venoms

Thanks in advance!

correct.

unfortunatley they (GW) have made it that to put a HQ in with a unit you have to sacrifice weapon upgrades (5-9 in a raider)

What i found to be a really good 500 point army to build on is a kabal army

Archon - blaster
2x 5warriors in venoms (dual canons and 1 blaster in each)
5x Trueborn (4xblasters) in a raider wis nightshields. - Archon goes here.

This is good advice.

At 500 pts none of your units can afford to be carried by the others, and can't hide - which is something the wyches will need to do if they're to survive. Warriors pull their weight much better. If you really do want to base your collection around wyches, I'd advise holding off until higher point value matches when you can afford to include some of the more elite units (the warriors will still be better value even then though)

Cool, appreciate the advice. I think I'll run that list next week. I'm kind of bummed Wyches are seemingly unfortunate, they are a cool unit model / fluff wise.
