PostSubject: DE & Harlie list for local tourney   Sat Jan 07 2017, 03:36

Hi there all fellow Archons and Succubi!

As stated in the title i'm attending a local tourney (not too competitive) and have put together a list to do glorious battle or less glorious but way more pleasurable slave snatching.
I've mostly been playing Corsairs before since i've only been a Warhammer Fantasy player in the past (Before Age of Silly) and felt that i needed to ease myself into 40k with a more forgiving army.
Now the time has come though to try out our True kin and their clown cousins so with no further babbling here is the list, please leave some tips or thoughts below..

Army total: 1499 pts

--CAD - Total: 872 pts

HQ - Total: 240 pts

Archon
-The Armour of Misery
-Agoniser
-Webway Portal
Total: 135 pts

Court of the Archon
-2x Medusae
+Dedicated Transport: Raider
Total: 105 pts


Troops - Total: 240 pts

4x Kabalite Warriors
-Sybarite
--Haywire Grenade
+Dedicated Transport: Venom
--Splinter Cannon
Total: 120 pts

4x Kabalite Warriors -
-Sybarite
--Haywire Grenade
+Dedicated Transport: Venom
--Splinter Cannon
Total: 120 pts

Fast Attack - Total: 392 pts

6x Reavers
-2x Cluster Caltrops
-1x Blaster
Total: 136 pts

6x Reavers
-2x Cluster Caltrops
-1x Heat Lance
Total: 136 pts

5x Scourges
-4x Haywire Blaster
Total: 120 pts


--Cast of Players - Total: 322 pts

Shadowseer
-Lvl 2
-Haywire grenades
-Mask of Secrets
Total: 105 pts

Iriam's Spectre (Death Jester)

Troupe
+1 Player
-Haywire grenades (Troupe Master)
-4x Caress
Total: 147 pts

--Heroes Path - Total: 305 pts

Shadowseer
-Lvl 2
-Haywire Grenade
Total: 90 pts

Solitare
-Haywire grenades
Total: 150 pts

Death Jester
-Haywire grenades
Total: 65 pts

The idea is to have several units with a relatively small foot print to hide them easier and with the high mobility gang upon larger targets if needed or just scurry away in multiple directions if the threat is to large. The Cast of Players would accompany the Archon with the Webway Portal shenanigans, also plan to get the raider up to them for added support and cover.
With all the Haywire grenades + Scourges and Reavers i hope i have enough AT but not to sure about if it will be enough..

The 1x Blaster and 1x Heat lance on the Reavers were added since i only had 21 pts left and didn't know what else to use them for and that i wanted to try each respective weapon to in the future know what i feel the most comfortable with.

There are some things that i'm not to sure about and with my limited experience of 40k warfare i'm not 100% on all the rules so please do consider that.
Is it possible to attatch the Archon into the Cast of Players detachment?
Can you use the Inarim's Spectre instead of the "normal" Death Jester in normal Harlie detachments?

Finally: I have a limited amount of models so apart from what is already listed i have:
1x Raider
1x Talos
3x Grotesques
10x Kabalite Warriors
1x Venom
10xish Harlequin tropues
2x Skyweavers

Yeah you can add the archon to the cast of players, and yes, I grand spectre can replace any death jester.

I've not really used troupes personal perference is the Faiulchu? Blade detachment, but I would drop one or two of the caress and give one to the troupe master. Means you've more bodies as extra wounds before you loss one of the upgrades and the masters extra attack give the caress more chnace to do damage.

I would toss haywire grenades on the archon if he's going with the troupe, though a succubus might be a better fit I've found she does far better in assault than the archon and her ap2 is invaluable at times. Shadowfield my be worth a shout.

I'm not really sold on the solitaire, he's rarely made an impact for me, but then that's probably my inability to roll dice at times.

Not a fan of the syrabite with Haywire grenades but I've seen a few people mention heir pretty good, I've never had my warriors that close that they would use them so I've never taken them.

I would split the reavers in to 6x3 instead of 2x6, again it's personal preference either way, I just find that 3man squads are easier to hide and more useful in general spamming msu.

You do lack anti armour though which will be interesting but looks like a fun list

Sweeeet, not the best of units to choose for a webway ambush but i reckon they should still have a bit of a punch and with that -4 ld and psycic shriek they should be able to lay down some hurt.

Yeah Faolchu's blade is something that i would really woant to try out but i simply don't have the models for it at this point since i don't own enough models for it. You reckon it would be worth investing in it for the extra AT with the Voidweaver? I've heard people aren't usuallly to happy with its preformance. Oh for sure, one of the caresses goes to the Troupe Master which leaves me 6 models in total and 4 with caresses.

Really? I was thinking with the caresses and the haywire grenades of the Archon/Shadowseer and Death Jester they would have enough at to threathen some things. Now that you say it i don't know why i didn't go for a Succubus, for some reason i thought she couldn't take the webway portal but she totally can.

Same, i've heard mixed reviews but i have never fieled him so i at least want to give him a go to test out how well i can utilize him.

I'm mainly going for it since i did try out blasters in a smaller sized game and they just weren't cutting it for me AT wise but maybe i'm better going all barebones and try to get some more proper At into the list.. i don't know.

I'm also more of a mind to have 6x3 but i spmly don't have the FA slots enough to do it and need the CAD to have some obsec units.

I think it will be a fun list indeed ^^ And hopefully i wont be seeing to much vehicles.
