I'd still like a Mandrake HQ. Especially now that Mandrakes are actually good. Twisted Evil

Yeah, that'd be nice.

But not Kheredrukah or whatever his name was. "Guy who chops heads off the Decapitator" didn't it translate to?

He was just... awful.

Oh, I agree.

No, I was thinking in terms of a 'generic' Mandrake HQ.

With the tangent we are going on we should make a topic just for HQ ideas, and wishlisting xD (Which I'd love to do personally xD )

As for Vehicles I'm with the consensus that Succubi should have the Skyboards and Jetbikes. An easy way to make them "distinct" HQs is to instead of making it a wargear option on the normal Succi page giving her something along the lines of the Skyrunner CWE Hqs and add Wargear options for the respective Vehicles.

For Archon having Scourge Wings seems like the most logical choice (and them affecting Scourges as well).
With regards to the obsessions for an Archon (and this is just pure speculation since there is almost 100% chance this will never happen) what would you want to see for them? I'm curious as to people's thoughts on that.

A Mandrake HQ would be pretty cool, and the aura buffs made me wonder what our Mandrake HQs aura would be, and looking at the Mandrake rules I'm thinking maybe a small 6 inch aura -1 to hit models in the radius would be cool (if VERY powerful with Mandrakes or Boats) or maybe giving a buff to invuln saves of our models with 6 inches.

Who cares if they were "looked down on", you become an Archon b.c your a Mother F&$@ing Bad@ss! They are Ruthless and Cunning, they will use any means to keep them in power, albeit a skyboard, jetbike, drugs or wings.

The thing is though the goal would be to make the HQ combo well with units in their own faction first and foremost. If the Kabals had some form of Biker then I'd be all for it, but unfortunately they don't so that Archon would be better suited towards being in a Wych Cult then a Kabal.

Scourge Archon
Mv:14", WS2+, BS:3+, S:3, T:3, W:3, A:4, Ld:9, Sv: 5+/6++(Ghostplate)/2++(Shadow Field)
Wargear: Power Sword, Splinter Pistol, Darklight Grenades
Wargear Options:
May replace Power Sword with one of the following: Agoniser, Power Lance, Venom Blade, Husk Blade.

May replace Splinter Pistol with one of the following: Blast Pistol, Blaster, Haywire Blaster, Heat Lance, Splinter Cannon, Dark Lance

May take items from the Arcane Wargear and Artefacts of Cruelty lists.

Abilities:
Ghostplate (as per Scourges)

Shadowfield (as per Archon)

Winged Strike (as per Scourges)

Under the Eye of Your Lord: Any soul under the employ of an Archon that fails to pull their weight is liable to be cut down from behind in a dark alleyway the minute they return to Commoragh, for fear of such a fate, those that find themselves under their rulers scrutiny redouble their efforts to hit their targets. Faction Keyword "<Kabal>" and Keyword "Scourge" Units within 6" may reroll to Hit rolls of a 1 any time they make a Shooting Attack.

Eh?

Anyone?
