Played a game against gk with allied inquisition. It was the first maelstrom mission.
He had 2 Valkyries, each loaded with various henchman. Draigo, coteaz, Crowe, 3 squads of purifiers and some paladins.
I had 3 squads of 6 reavers with double caltrops, 3 squads of blaster scourges, a raider with a succubus and 9 incubi, two venoms with 5 warriors and a Razorwing.
This was the first time I've fielded a succubus and that unit completely wrecked face. The reavers took out the paladins and Draigo in close combat; caltrops rock. My Razorwing downed one Valkyrie while my scourges took out all of the purifiers AND the other Valkyrie. I only lost 1 venom and warrior group. They were sacrificed to nail Crowe.
At this point I'm completely sold on filling out my fast attack slots with reavers and scourges.
The henchmen used to be a problem for me as I never really had the right mix to take them out and my opponent was over confident in their ability. It's hard to argue with the number of ap2 attacks 9 incubi and a succubus can put out. Also rending from hammer of wrath is simply nasty. Prior to this codex I did everything I could to keep the bikes out of close combat because that was their Achilles heal. Now, that's exactly where you want them to be.
It's also hard to argue with deep striking units fielding s8, ap2 weapons. That platform is so much better than blaster born.
