PostSubject: Incubi squad limit?    Thu Oct 29 2015, 09:52

So a quick question, when you guys field Incubi, how large of a squad is it normally? I usually, along with a character, at a leader unit+Incubi Retinue is at 5 models, mostly because I only have venoms instead of Raiders, the main reason I ask is that in my most recent game, although it was on turn 4, about to be 5, three incubi plus my Archon mauled a Necron lord and killed his entire squad of Immortals, not a single incubi fell, and since my Warlord had rage from the Warlord traits, it helped the assault even more, I killed his eternal warrior Necron lord in two hits with a huskblade, 2 extra strength for my Archon, was great, but the Incubi killed about 5 or 6 altogether, then sweeping advance took the rest, I always take Incubi, but I never really thought, how difficult they'd be as a massive squad, most of the time they are effecient smaller, but does anyone have any stories or experiences of people taking in a squad of 10 or so?

I never take more than 8, and usually not more than 4. I like Squads in Venoms, and if I am putting them in a Raider I feel like I'm making a direct comparison to Grotesques, and in most circumstances I'd Rather have the Grotesques.

When I take 8 I'm also taking Prince Yriel and a Haemonculus with a WWP and Gunslinger(Stinger Pistol and Parasites Kiss). Yriel being the real beat stick, with the incubi being there as a wound pool, and for the ap2. I never do this under 1850 as it is far too expensive, but I can usually chew through about 2/3's their point cost and force my opponent into an opportune section of the map before the unit goes down.

If I see a target for yriels single use attack I just break up the unit and use the Incubi like a string of traffic cones.

To be honest, I don't think it's worth running *any* DE unit over 5 guys - Incubi included.

I find that you don't get enough extra durability to make it worthwhile, so I'd rather spread out my points over as many small squads as possible.

I take 4 and a klaivex in a raider because raiders are the only transports that can take nightshields.

I do think same as nexs. Plus the raider has an extra hull point, can add sails, and if I don't do any upgrades to it, its an affordable 55 pt boat.

Hmm okay, the biggest incubi squad I've ran is 5, and I run them 90% of the time, I just wonder any experiences that worked very well at a high number, the Yriel squad seems cool. Very Happy

I've been running 7. It doesn't matter much for the first combat, but I usually have 3-5 left for the second combat. Incubi seem to be good at destroying two units per game at that size.

For people that run smaller squads, do you find them capable of tackling multiple units throughout a game?

Most of the time no. But by then I am hoping to have other units to help out. I do fond however that the bigger the unit, the bigger target they have on them, making them seem to last for even fewer turns

Incubi seem to be the primary target as soon as people see them regardless of squad size. :-\

Yeah, in terms of my Incubi survival though, I'm usually quite lucky, my Incubi are always in a venom, and for the most part since I'm the only DE player at my store, my enemies don't know much to expect, excluding poison, any time my Incubi have entered melee, my opponents are always mouth ajar when I say "They are AP2" haha. Smile
