PostSubject: 2K Pure Drukhari for Tournament   Fri Jul 28 2017, 19:29

Hi all,

I'll be heading to a tournament in September for the first time in a long time. My aim is not necessarily to be hyper competitive, but who doesn't like winning.

As this is a new army, I have a LOT to paint - I also just ended a relationship as 8th came out, so I went a little crazy and bought a TON of stuff (ie: If you think of options not on this list, I probably already own the models, or can buy them - with the exception of additional incubi or mandrakes as the models seem to be out of stock).

As my work is in the busiest state i've ever seen, I don't have a lot of time - ergo I won't be able to play test this list until the tournament as my free time will be spent painting furiously, so I wanted to get feedback on the list while I still have time to adjust anything.

Main thoughts on the list:
- Wyches/Incubi there to counterstrike close combat units + tarpit hordes (wyches)
- Succubus, Archon, Sslyth, and Medusa's in a venom whizzin around where they're needed
- Warrior gunboats to whittle down with shooting and hold objectives
- Razorwings for AT/some AI
- All the dark lances for dark lancey things.

Archon: blaster; agonizer; phantasm grenade launcher 76
Succubus: blast pistol 82

10 Wyches: 3× 2 hydra gauntlets; Hekatrix (blast pistol; agoniser; phantasm grenade launcher) 119
5 Kabalite Warriors: blaster; Sybarite (agoniser; phantasm grenade launcher) 57
5 Kabalite Warriors: blaster; Sybarite (agoniser; phantasm grenade launcher) 57
5 Kabalite Warriors: Sybarite (agoniser; phantasm grenade launcher) 42
5 Kabalite Warriors: Sybarite (agoniser; phantasm grenade launcher) 42

5 Kabalite Trueborn: 4× blaster; Dracon (blast pistol; agoniser; phantasm grenade launcher) 132
5 Incubi 90
Sslyth 44
Medusae 28
Medusae 28

5 Scourges: 4× dark lance 150

Raider: shock prow 116

Venom 80

Razorwing Jetfighter: two dark lances 155

Open to any and all feedback, thanks!

I really like this list. I like wyches as a tarpit unit and against hordes of infantry (im looking at you conscripts and others) they do alright. More importantly tieing up a large squad is useful, especially as most hordes dont have pistols. Slugga boys are a large green exception to this.
Warriors are great. I might drop 2 of the P.G.L as 2 coming from the same place might be a bit wasted.

Id be tempted to find a few more lances but the only thing you could drop for them is the blasterborn and the venom they come in. Which supply a really good mobile firebase to deal with low multi-wound units.

And the one thing i would find a way to swap completely is the Court. For the same cost you could get another 5 incubi and 10 pts extra to put towards the raider they would need leaving you with only 15 pts to find for it(which i would take from the dracon and the extra PGLs)

I mocked up a list based on your suggestion of getting rid of the court...I really like it, especially as I'd cut one of the venoms and replace it with a raider, leaving me with plenty of points for various upgrades.

My only concern is every store (including GW online in Canada) is out of stock of incubi. I travel for work around Western Canada, and I literally called every store in half the country and found a store that had 1 box (which is the box I currently have).

I may have to think of an alternative, cuz I reaaaaally like the idea of another unit of incubi. I think i'd put a unit of incubi and a unit of warriors in each raider! The thing I worry about with this list is mostly hordes, but incubi can slice them up nice and good.

Stratagies games in Vancouver BC might have them

Haha! Dang!

Have you tried bastion games, toy traders, or imperial hobbies? I am assuming so. But ya never know.

Cool list by the way

I haven't tried bastion, I'll give them a call when they open today.

Thank you!

If you want ok looking incubi, buy a box of executioners and throw on dark eldar bits. Make sure to buy round bases though.

I considered the executioners as plan B, but now I have 5 of the resin incubi - plus I genuinely love these models, they were half the reason I started drukhari

You're pretty light on Dark Lances for a 2k list. You mentioned that the Razorwings are your main source of anti-tank - why not Ravagers for the same point cost? An additional lance each. And with the FAQ's nerf to Necrotoxin missiles, the Razorwings just aren't as good IMO. You already have a ton of anti-infantry firepower, so I wouldn't worry about having your Razorwings pull double duty.

Also, be careful sending the Wyches against hordes. With their invuln, massive amounts of attacks like you'll get from hordes are the best way to kill Wyches. Wyches are much better suited for tying up big things with a smaller number of very strong attacks, or for shredding smaller squads that you know you'll mostly decimate on the charge.

You make a good point about the razorwings. Going to the hobby store to see if they have the 2 I need to make 3, now would it be worth adding 1 dissie to each?

Dissies are good to add a versatile AI/AT option in a list that has enough AT. You don't have enough AT to justify it, IMO.
They are sligthly inferior to DL (very slightly) against AT. So if you need more AI, they are perfect. If you're in need of AT, you just spend 10 points not to upgrade your weapon. I think you're in the second case.

i wagree with keeping them with the lances.
Chippen isnt wrong about hordes being the best way to kill wyches but if they go in with the incubi they can force them to stick in combat with the incubi. wyches have always been great at tying up elite combat units it is kind of their shtick.

Thank you all for the feedback.

I think I found some incubi, and my store did have the two ravagers I needed. I decided to keep the blast pistol on the dracon as trueborn are decent at lategame combat, and I find I usually end up in close quarters late game - plus I couldn't find a valuable way to use up extra pts. Also why the sybarite in the big unit has a blast pistol (if they're escorting the archon and succubus, they'll eventually end up in close quarters). Birds are in as limited bubble wrap

So each incubi unit goes with a matching warrior, hq's in with the large warrior unit, and 3 more DL's thanks to the ravagers:

Archon: blaster; agonizer; phantasm grenade launcher 76
Succubus: blast pistol 82

10 Wyches: 3× 2 hydra gauntlets; Hekatrix (blast pistol; agoniser) 116
5 Kabalite Warriors: blaster; Sybarite (agoniser; phantasm grenade launcher) 57
5 Kabalite Warriors: blaster; Sybarite (agoniser; phantasm grenade launcher) 57
8 Kabalite Warriors: blaster; Sybarite (blast pistol; agoniser) 85

5 Kabalite Trueborn: 4× blaster; Dracon (blast pistol; agoniser; phantasm grenade launcher) 132
5 Incubi 90
5 Incubi 90

5 Scourges: 4× dark lance 150
2 Razorwing Flocks 28

Ravager 155

You have four raiders in the list but I count a need for 3 granted it ads another dark lance and a boat for 5 kabalites but you could trade it for a beast master and a couple more Razorwing flocks (beast master gives them a nice little buff) and put your two units of 5 kabalites into the same raider, this would give you a beast master, 2 more Razorwing flocks, and agonizer for the beast master and room for some khymaeras or a clawed fiend. But that's just a suggestion and I can see advantages for the list the way it is.

Raider 1 - 10 Wyches
Raider 2 - 8 Warriors, Archon, Succubus
Raider 3 - 5 warriors, 5 incubi
Raider 4 - - 5 warriors, 5 incubi
Venom - 5 Trueborn

I wish it were the case that I did have 1 too many, as I would love the beastmaster so that I could take slightly larger flock units without worrying about morale, but alas all my transport capacity is spoken for.

Oh hell I missed the Incubi that was my bad, never mind then Smile but I would suggest a beast master for the flocks at some point.
