The sniping tantalus also sounds super fun. Just gotta acquire one first.

Drahzar is in good shape, 60pts less, can fight twice on a charge, 6's to hit generate 2 hits.
Same aura so him and incubi generate 2 hits on 5 or 6's to hit, +1 to to hit. Has new leadership bonus -1 to LD. I'm really looking forward to using him, incubi are unchanged and good, this just makes them tons better

Unfortunately, the Incubi's "Onslaught" stratagem specifies that the 6s have to be unmodified. It's a bit of a buzzkill, but the Incubi and Drazhar themselves are sweet. Can't wait to get my hands on them.

Just won a auction for some Sister of Silence so I'll join the Incubi hype train with those

I'm of the opinion that mandrakes are now just straight up better than Incubi. Can anyone chime in with something I'm missing?

Incubi hit at higher strength, and are marginally more durable.

More durable in the way a piece of dry tissue paper is more durable than a wet one.

You might have a point. I assume we're gonna get some neat Mandrake strategem. Have we seen 10 maybe ? Out of the 33 in the book.

Both are S4 i believe. Incubi are 3+ vs 5++ -1 to hit. I think the later works out more durable in all instances of any ap.

Wow Incubi are only strength 4. Well I'll be! They do hit at -3AP though, compared the Mandrake's new -2 in cc. I personally prefer Mandrakes anyway, and I'll be taking quite a few of them.

yeah its certainly going to be tough to choose between mandrakes and incubi, those 2 units are pretty great,  with their roles only varying slightly.

Especially now that all three special weapons choices are decent

I want to try screaming jets so bad. Deep strike some of my units right into my enemies faces. Be it blaster born, some Archon, shredder born, a big blob, grotesques (oh yeah! I'm so stoked that they are viable again! 4++, one more wound and one more ap? Yes please!) or what ever.

2 Razorflails, 1 shardnet for me. My opponent will weep when he can only roll a d3 to run away!

Haha, yeah forcing your opponent to roll a d3 on No Escape is super trolly. I feel like we have a lot of new rules that might as well read: "Make a grown-ass adult cry".

I would be far more inclined to use Grots if I had better access to the models. Alas, my converting chops ain't good enough. That said, hoo boy do they look choppy now.

I want to try most a proper DE raiding force. Synergic, coherent, fast and dangerous with nasty surprises. This whole dex is more than I dared to hope in terms of so many great options that I will be able to play each battle with differently built army, without compromising anything

There's honestly an overwhelming number of lists I want to try - I've narrowed down my first, but there's just a never ending number of combinations that look fun! I don't really care if they're good, so long as they're fun!

Also the Archon and Succubus both seem like very deadly combatants, which is exactly what I was looking for! Stoked on that!

Grots look great - Once I've painted the rest of my army I'll definitely be giving them a whirl.

@PartZebra I use crypt horrors from Warhammer fantasy. Slap those masks on them and add vials and stuff from the talos kit and you're good to go.

Aye, the trouble being that I have a very specific vision of how I want my Coven to look when I start them; no doubt I'll create a thread in due course once I decide to focus on them. Thanks for the suggestion though Very Happy

For now, it'll be starting my Wych Cult and finishing my Kabal off.

So on average, how many shirtless blokes will you be fielding? 60?

Depends, if I can stack them more than 10 deep in a squad I'll aim for 100. A Tantalus, some Haemonculi, and a good ok fashioned doomseer should make it work.

One hundred...that's gonna be hard to shunt. I'm presuming PoF just to make them even more stubborn to shift?

Well as i kinda expected a more generic Codex, that was more or less just a ripoff from the CWE codex, i got to say... Wow... the codex seems amazing, final judgement ofc first when get the codex and test it out, but... wow... just so much to try out.
So what I'm the most excited for... Well looking at the codex it feels like i walked into a candy store, without enough money to buy everything... Guess Im just excited to build my first list with the codex and hear my opponent cry Very Happy
Most likely going to start with a Kabal/Cult list, tho thats mostly because thats the units i got.

I'm really excited to try a Flayed Skull Venom list. I can get a Dual Cannon Venom and a Blaster Kab squad for just five points more than I spend now on stock options for both. With 19" skimmers that ignore cover and reroll 1s? Oh boy, my opponent won't know what hit them.

I'm also going to try to Zerg Rush with Red Grief Reavers in an Outrider. Deploying them up front will get me into their deployment zone after one turn of movement, I'll probably be smashing into their backlines first turn.

It's a shame the HQs are still lacking mobility, but oh man, the rest of our stuff has sped up.

Thinking very much along the same lines as you, I'll probably mix raiders and venoms in my list but definetly heavy emphasis on blaster warriors in transports to benefit from the flayed skull rules.

I only have 6 reavers but I'll definetly be trying them out with red grief, want to go up to 12 so I can really rush my opponent.

I just don't even know how to build my army anymore.

Dissie Ravagers have amazing guns and are cheap as frak.

Scourges have great weapon selections and too be honest, the dark lance went from being the best weapon for them to the worst, except for splinter cannon which isn't even bad per say.

Mandrakes are amazing source of mortal wound shooting and were good before and now only cost 16 points.

Reavers are just way way better.

Deepstriking warrior squads..

Deepstriking tantalus party boat

Character spam

Ynnari allies

Craftworld Allies

Coven 4++ and grotesque/talos buffs.

19" inch moving venoms

Cheaper flying spam

Like wtf do I frak do?

I think it's excellent that you even have to ask that quesitons, means we have way more options now and more things to try.
