PostSubject: Advice for a pure cult list.   Thu Dec 07 2017, 20:11

Hi fellow dark denizens.
I'm really enjoying dark eldar in this edition and would like to try something a little different to how I usually play then so thought I'd try a pure cult list.

The most common points value where I play is 1850 any advice with them?

This is what I ran at a fluff tourney at 1250pts:

Succubus with Glaive and To-Hit Drug
5 Wyches with Strength Drug, Agoni
5 Wyches with Attack Drug, Agoni
1 Empty Venom
1 Str Drug Wych Venom
1 Att Drug Wych Venom
1 Succy Venom
6 Reavers with Toughness Drug, Blasters, Caltrops
3 Reavers with Move Drug, Blaster, Caltrops
Ravager

It was fun to play. Its definitely not a TAC list, but it may be of some use to you. At 1850 I'd expand with 3 more Reavers to the smaller unit and more Wyches, add Blaster Pistols everywhere. Small Khymerae units too for DS denial. I still can't make myself to use the Hellions. The Scourges might be exchanged too.

I was thinking something like this:
Air Wing Detachment
Razorwing Jetfighter 2 Dark Lances, Splinter Cannon

Razorwing Jetfighter 2 Dark Lances, Splinter Cannon

Voidraven Two dark scythes, Voidraven Missiles

Battalion Detachment
HQ
Succubus archite glaive Blast Pistol

Succubus archite glaive, tge parasites kiss

Troops

5x wyches 1 with hydra gauntlet, Hekatrix with Agoniser, Blast Pistol
5x wyches 1 with hydra gauntlet, Hekatrix with Agoniser, Blast Pistol
5x wyches 1 with hydra gauntlet, Hekatrix with Agoniser, Blast Pistol
5x wyches 1 with hydra gauntlet, Hekatrix with Agoniser, Blast Pistol

Elites

Beastmaster with Beastmaster's scourge
Beastmaster with Beastmaster's scourge
2x Pair of Khymerae
2x Pair of Khymerae
10x Hekatrix Bloodbride 3 with hydra gauntlets, Syren with Agoniser and Blast Pistol

Fast Attack

5x Reavers Arena Champion, 2x Grav-Talon,

Dedicated Transport

Raider Dark Lance, Shock Prow
Raider Dark Lance, Shock Prow
Raider Dark Lance, Shock Prow
Total 1835pts

The theory is all the girls except the succubi go in raiders the succubi deploy by webway use the planes and raiders to deal with any vehicles use the khymera a a screening distraction and the speed of the reavers to take out some back field units. The reavers get the +1T drug the bloodbrides get tree +1A drug one of the succubi get the +1S drug and roll for the rest

Does that look like something that will work?

You only have 9 lances. Maybe it's not enough. I don't count the blast pistol, because of the range and the low amount of damage they do.

Why bother running two beast masters for 4 (or is that Cool dogs? I’d at least cut one out

Nope, you just get a free slot for a beast unit if you take a beast Master.

I don't bother with Beastmaster for units of 4 khymerae. If someone shoots them, I don't care if they all die. Beastmaster is not worth the points.

Its 8 khymerae and if I do 1 best master I I can make it 12 in 2 units does a bm become worthwhile then?

I'm not bothered ait losing the bm's I don't like any of the hover board models I just thought four tge Khymerae to stick around long enough to soak sine bullets and be a worthwhile distraction that you'd need a bm

Having played a unit of 20 hellions in 8th (I had them from 7th ... I loved the models and did t want to run reavers as they never worked for me) the unit has a very large footprint and could be a very large bubble of ds denial as well as potential str 5 d2 cc weapons (40 attacks ... So a potential of 80 damage) they make for pretty good elite killers, or you can leave them at str 4 and give them either the toughness drug for t4 or the move drug for 16" movement, they are a versatile unit because of the drugs and I like them in my Cult list. But I also understand most people see them as bad. And I have no desire to argue about whether or not they are good or terrible as I find you can math hammer all you want but averages rarely (for me at least) ever happen in actual gameplay

See heres thing thing about the BM, hes a perfect conduit for that +2 ld drug

if you like beasts, hes worth taking along with 2 near max units of beasts. i have 10/12 dogs and 9/12 birds in my current list.

Using the cold one raptor as a steed is one of the best conversions ive seen. I have mine on a board and it doesnt looks terrible if you just have 1 (I also dont love the hellion's original model, but i do love the heads/torsos/and legs for reaver conversions)
