I'm putting together my Succubus and I'm trying to understand why does the model only come with a Glaive and an agonizer?
What is the benefit? Is one better against hordes and the other against monsters?
Why wouldn't you take say a glaive and a blast pistol instead?

I think the only reason of putting an agoniser on a Succubus is if you plan on using the Triptych Whip relic.
Otherwise I prefer to use a blast pistol, it greatly helps her in dealing with HQs and armoured threats.

I think it's because someone on the GW design team thought it looked cool.

Is the Succubus compatible with arms from other DE models?


Anyway, yeah, you're usually better off with the Glaive and pistol. The only exception would be if you planned to take the Agoniser relic. But quite why the Succubus can't swap out her Glaive for a pistol is anyone's guess.

Yeah, they're fine on her. Pretty much all the Kabal and Cult plastic models are easy to kitbash with each other except for the Archon because of his awkward posing.

Arms are definetly compatible, I gave my succubus a splinter pistol from the wych set.

There's no point wasting pts on an agonizer unless you want to take the whip relic, glaive is just usually better.

i made three bashes a few weeks ago (have yet to paint them) the worst part is the flesh cloak, its very cool how it wraps around the model, but makes it next to impossible to pose other ways. if i had to do it over i would have just made one out of green stuff instead.

Much prefer the 5th ed resin Archon.

The kit came with 2 helmet options, both of which are far superior to the potato we get with the 7th ed plastic Archon.

+ the pose is actually dramatic as opposed to *lol-derp, I'm a sarcophogas*

lol!

I couldn't agree more.

Incidentally, it seems GW agree as well - because both of the recent DE books have featured the 5th edition Archon. Which would be great if the were still making the things. Neutral

yeah I'm still rocking the 5th edition metal archon with glee. Had to order another archon cuz I only own one (need two for a batallion). I'm definitely going to try and model him up different.... actually thinking about kitbashing a Lhamaean. Definitely a cool looking model...can have a female archon!

@Soulless Samurai.
Yet the 5th ed codex seemed to feature the plastic Archon’s likeness on the front cover.

Though if the plastic Archon were chillaxing in a hover-throne and laughing at the filthy peons prostrated before him, I doubt any of us would have as much of a problem with the model that we do.


@Aschen, not to tell you how to model your army or anything, but if you go down the Lhamaen route, be wary that it is also the path of Failcast.
