I have 3 reavers and thinking of converting them... The question at hand is do I make them warlock skyrunners. Cheep and I can use all 3 to help protect my army with drain. Or do I go all out on one and make a farseer or in my case a Darkseer for DOOM! Has anyone had experance and can help me out?

Doom Farseer is pretty sweet, especially in a Ynnari force.

I play with a Farseer Skyrunner w/Singing Spear and it's pretty incredible.

Casting Doom on a unit literally guarantees that even focussed splinter fire would smear it from the face of the earth, it's nuts.

The more I look into Farseer skyrunner, the more I wan't one as a support for my army.
And the model looks great too ^^

I've also been looking at getting one to replace my Archon in my Drukhari HQ slot.
The main bulk of my army are Reavers. Having a Doom wielding HQ at the forefront keeping up with the other bikes would be awesome.

Farseers are the best unless you're running an Eldar list, because conceal only affects Eldar infantry/bikes. Drukhari™ benefit from doom a lot.

Fluff-wise, why would a Farseer be leading a Drukhari raiding party?

Because he foresaw the downfall of himself/his craftworld/entire species if he didnt? Or a phoenix lord bloody well told him to ditto with a harlequin grand troupe leader. Or he just hired a bunch of mercs as they dont need to survive or his craftworlds forces are already fully engaged in something.

Farseers are really the easiest unit to find common ground with Drukhari cause the "runes (coughtzeentchcough) told them to"

Now getting incubi and striking scorpions to not kill each other ... thats a whole different game

Why would a Farseer lead the first wave of assault in a raid put on by the True Kin?
I'm thinking an explosive collar. Twisted Evil
