Making an army list where one portion will be a Dark Creed Tantalus filled with wyches, a succubus and a Haemonculous.

My question is what cult to make the wyches.  

My initial instinct was to go with strife to get access to the fight again strategem and the re-roll charges.  I would then give my succubus the Blood Glaive artefact.    For drugs, the wyches would get +1 STR and the Succubus +1 Attack.

The alternative is to make them cult of the cursed Blade.   This automatically gives the wyches +1 STR, so I could actually make them STR 5 in this case.    The Succubus would have the Traitor's Embrace (which is an absolutely delicious artefact!)

Being in the tantalus, they could potentially stay in there Turn 1, and then deploy, move and charge Turn 2.

Additional question:
The Kabal portion of my list will be a Black Heart Battalion and I will have 2 Coven patrols one Dark Creed and one Prophets of Flesh.    

Am I better to take the Writ of the Living Muse for the Archon, or send my Prophets of Flesh Haemonculus with the wyches instead and give him the Vexator Mask ?


My opponent will likely be Tyranids if that makes a difference.

The blood Glaive is a red grief artefact. So that might influence your decision.

oops! good catch. It is Red Grief I was looking at (since I was looking at the re-roll charge distances). But that does change the strategem that I would have available to me. Not that consolidating back into the tantalus is a bad thing!

Note that power from pain gives you reroll charges starting on turn 2 regardless of Obsession.

red greif is mainly for T1 charges on reavers and hellions, don't take it if you intend to use a lot of wyches. red greif outriders are the best, as wyches benefit more from strife or cursed blade. you can take a red grief reaver outrider for less than 500 points, and the are invaluable anti-alpha strike tools. charging an enemy tank on T1 to stop it from shooting really give the rest of your force time to get in to position, and reduces the damage you take. reavers are also durable, great to shove down the enemies' throat!

Thanks all. That's the conclusion I ultimately came to as well. Cursed Blade it is. + 1 strength drug for the wyches makes them a total of STR 5. Very handy to charge in and destroy his Hive Guard.
