I've had some really excellent success running the Archon with a court of four medusae. The others are ok except maybe the lhamean but critically they do things we have easy access to in other places. The medusa competes only with Mandrakes as a solid anti MEQ shooter and pound for pound a Medusa near an archon out shoots Mandrakes and gives you a solid if expensive HQ slot.

+1 tried it yesterday against Necron , not op as frak but it do the job

Its not 9 slots but i run a haemie with 4 grotesques in a raider so still one open slot but it serves its purpose. My other haemie walks with my monstrous creature.

I've only played a few games but the combo I liked best was 4 grotesques, haemonculus, succubus in one raider, and 10 wyches in the raider nearby. It allowed me to use both HQs' auras and gave me a variety of tools to deal with combat. For instance, Wyches held up (and wounded severely!) the warboss and the remaining meganob, while the other team beat up nobz without klaws. Then the succubus cleaned up the warboss the next turn.

So far I've ran my Succubus on foot with the +2" movement drug chasing after my Wych raiders. I do plan on trying her out in a raider with 9 Bloodbrides with no Wych weapons on the Brides, I'm hoping the extra attacks from the Bloodbrides will make up for the lack of special weapons. My Haemie I run on foot currently with a Talos and Cronos, it works ok as they soak up good firepower but I do this mostly due to a lack of models, in 7th I only had enough Covens units to make a Dark Artisan formation. The lack of extra slots on our transports is really frustrating though, didn't we have the extra slots in the codex that came before the 7th edition dex?

Well, now the FAQ is out this question is pretty much answered. You can have 4 incubi, 4 bloodbrides, or 4 trueborn riding along with an HQ if you want. I wonder how well 4x Blaster born+Blasterchon would work. For fluffiness I'll definitely be running my succubus alongside 4 bloodbrides even though that only gets me a Syren and no wych weapon.

I haven't looked but is there a rule that says Grots take up 2 slots or is everything 1 slot in this edition? Also wouldn't you lose a whole grot model on the roll of a 1 when the vehicle dies?

That's what command points are for Very Happy

Yes they are two slots each. And yes you remove a whole model.

Ok. Where does it say they take up 2 slots in the rules. I didn't see it on their data slate.
