PostSubject: Returning Player: Comparing Two 500/750/1000pt. Escalation Lists   Wed Jul 19 2017, 16:44

Well I've been away since 5th ed, and 8th edition has given me a reason to return to this game I love. I am starting a dark eldar army that will regularly face off against a friend's dark angels.

I have put together two strategies for progression from 500pts to 750 to 1000. I'm hoping to pick up the army by the end of the week. I am leaning towards “option A” which I will give first:

Wych Cult of the Poisoned Vine

499pts:
Succubus (blast pistol) 82
5 Wyches (agonizer) 49
5 Wyches (agonizer) 49
Raider (dark lance) 115
9 Wyches (agonizer, hydra gauntlets) 89
Raider (dark lance) 115

750pts:
Succubus 72
5 Wyches (agonizer, hydra gauntlets) 53
5 Wyches (agonizer, hydra gauntlets) 53
Raider (dark lance) 115
9 Wyches (agonizer, hydra gauntlets, pgl) 92
Raider (dark lance) 115
5 Trueborn (2 dark lances) 95
Ravager (3 dark lances) 155

1002pts:
Succubus (blast pistol) 82
5 Wyches (agonizer, hydra gauntlets) 53
5 Wyches (agonizer, hydra gauntlets) 53
Raider (dark lance) 115
9 Wyches (blast pistol, agonizer, hydra gauntlets) 99
Raider (dark lance) 115
5 Trueborn (2 dark lances) 95
Venom (splinter cannon) 80
Ravager (3 dark lances) 155
Ravager (3 dark lances) 155

Quick thoughts: Lots of dark lances to deal with vehicles, wyches to clean up or at least tie up what is left. Worried that the 1000 point list especially may not have enough bodies.

“Option B”:

Kabal of the Poisoned Vine

500pts:
Archon (blast pistol, agonizer) 68
9 Kabalites (blaster, agonizer) 82
Raider (dark lance) 115
5 Kabalites (blaster) 50
Venom (splinter cannon) 80
3 Reavers (blaster) 105

750pts:
Archon (blast pistol, agonizer) 68
9 Kabalites (blaster, agonizer) 82
Raider (dark lance) 115
10 Kabalites (splinter cannon)85
Raider (dark lance) 115
5 Kabalites (blaster) 50
Venom (splinter cannon) 80
Ravager (3 dark lances) 155

1000pts:
Archon (blast pistol, agonizer) 68
9 Kabalites (blaster, agonizer) 82
Raider (dark lance) 115
10 Kabalites (splinter cannon)85
Raider (dark lance) 115
5 Kabalites (blaster) 50
Venom (splinter cannon) 80
3 Reavers (grav-talon) 95
Ravager (3 dark lances) 155
Ravager (3 dark lances) 155

My search of the tactics section for discussion on the state of wyches in 8th was largely unsuccessful. Does anyone have feedback/experience fielding a largely wych cult force? I am leaning towards that direction simply because the models look cooler and more fun to paint. What advice would you give as I plan to take on dark angels?


Thanks so much
