This is the court I'm planning right now...

-x1 lhamaen
x3 sslyths
x2 medusae
x4 ur-ghuls
205 pts

this is my archon...

-Archon with agoniser, huskblade, blast pistol, SF, soul trap, ghostplate and haywires. 185pts

and this is my tantalus.

-Tantalus with NS and grisly trophies. 230pts

Anything to think about before its first fight?

Some fat on the archon - apart from it being illegal. Loose the agoniser, ghost plate and even the drugs...

I just realised it was illegal from my first article "Agoniser, huskblade and blast pistol archon.".
I'm loosing the agoniser, blast pistol and maybe the ghostplate now. I just keep it as a 10pt backup if the SF fails. And I don't have any combat drugs on him. scratch

Competitive or fun?

So far I'm mostly a funish sort of player right now (being a dark eldar rookie) but once I get a big enough army (roughly 3500pts before I just start adding on.) I'll enter more competitive things.

Ok, well... Go right ahead and enjoy yourself! Smile

It's just a very expensive unit like this and difficult to use. So you'll have to be carefull during the game to not just throw away that much points. Have the court and the Tantalus actually mince up something juicy. But other than that, very fun unit to use. Very fluffy.

By juicy, what do you mean? Terminators, command squads, objective holders?

Yeah juicy is related to context. So if there's a big scary unit heading for your objective. Preferably the unit with the Warlord in it. It just gotta earn it's points back, you know what I mean.

Just a thought. Tell me if its a stupid question. How about a phantasm grenade launcher on the archon? It gives his squad of 10 all assault and defensive grenades.

Could be good for anti fortification. All those D3 hits seems kinda scary, even if they aren't plasma grenades and it's 25pts, especialy if the wyches are tied up.

That's not stupid at all. Would actually recommend it.
