Fluff wise would it be possible/make sense for an Archon to have Scourge wings? Either that a scourge became an Archon (like that reaver dude becoming an Archon of the flayed skull) or an Archon getting some wings added

I guesse its possible that an archon get wing as long he's rich enough ti find a haemy to that for him. I dont think a scourge can become an archon because scourge have their own society separate from the rest of the drukhari

Look up archon Maxillion the Mad. hes from the Andy Chambers books. Hes obsessed with birds and for like 30 years he didnt touch the ground.

Also theres a whole group of drukhari who have started augmenting themselves with GSC parts

So what I'm saying we are arguably the most advanced and eccentric race in 40k, who have rules in game to illustrate how obsessed we get with our particular vice (sorta like serial killers).

Fluff-wise, an Archon could have nearly anything.
They could have wings, a skyboard, a Reaver, etc. An Archon is an ultimate authority within a Kabal, so could ride shotgun on a Ravager, or pilot a Razorwing if they really wanted.

- Scourges generally have their own sub-society, but it's not hard to imagine that a few of them would maintain or develop political interests beyond that.

- Also, given that Scourges already act as mercenaries, it's entirely possible that one could gain power in a similar manner to Baron Sathonyx (technically, he might not be an Archon, but since we don't have a 'Gang Leader' HQ, I think the Archon would suffice).

- In terms of Archons who don't start off as Scourges, it's worth remembering that Scourge wings are only available to the rich. Hence, an Archon could easily decide that he wants a pair as much for status as anything else.

- There's also the ego aspect. To quote a Scourge from Dawn of War: "The earth does not deserve to touch my feet." Given that many Archons have been shown to think along similar lines (especially those belonging to the Flayed Skull), wings might well be an attractive notion. This way the Archon can leave his Venom/Raider to carve up his foes in person, without ever having to lower himself to the level of an earthbound footsoldier.

- Finally, there's the possibility of eccentricity, madness, obsession etc.. Perhaps an Archon comes to feel more kinship with his Scourges than with any of his normal retainers. Perhaps he comes to see a purity in their methods, soaring high above the politics of the Dark City, and decides to let his lieutenants take the helm of his Raiders and Venoms, whilst he descends with his favoured flock
of Scourges.

Really, there are any number of reasons why an Archon might decide to invest in Scourge wings.

Great post Soulless Samurai!

Personally, I'm modelling all my Cult/Kabal HQs from the Scourge box, with wings. Even if they don't have rules, it goes with my fluff. And maybe one day they'll have rules Smile

An Archon does what an Archon pleases.

If your Archon wants to ride a bicycle and listen to Motorhead with a Pumpkin on his head, he'll do it. We're talking egomaniac psychopath here. He. doesn't. give. a. damn.
