Ok, I've played very few games with the new DE book, and none at all with the Haemoculus supplement. So, I'm looking for advice with this list and coven/formation lists in general.

DE Combined-Arms Detachment:

HQ
Haemonculus
- Helm of Spite
- Flesh Gauntlet

Elites
5 Trueborn
- 4x Blaster
- Venom
- Splinter Cannon

5 Trueborn
- 4x Blaster
- Venom
- Splinter Cannon

Troops
5 Warriors
- Venom
- Splinter Cannon

Troops
5 Warriors
- Venom
- Splinter Cannon

10 Warriors
- Raider
- Dark Lance
- Splinter Racks

FA
5 Scourges
- 4x Haywire Blaster

Grotesquerie Formation:

Haemonculus (Warlord)
- Sindriq's Sump
- Scissorhand

4 Grotesques
- Aberration
- Scissorhand
- Raider
- Dark Lance

4 Grotesques
- Aberration
- Scissorhand
- Raider
- Dark Lance

1480pts

The Haemonculi each accompany one of the Grotesque units.

Anyway, a few questions:

1) Would it be worth replacing one of the Haemonculi with Urien Rakarth (and dropping some wargear from the other)?

2) Are the Scissorhands worth it on the Aberrations?

3) Not sure what to do with the spare 20pts, any ideas?

Also, any other thoughts or suggestions?

Urien is too cool for scholl. So I say keep him.

Scissorhands is still awesome.

Strongly recommend Haywire Grenades wherehever you can justify them.

could shuffle the points with the aberrrations and their sicssorhands then maby get another grotesque with the 20. I would personally have a scissorhand on hamey rather than flesh gauntlet.

Hard to keep him when he's not in the list yet.  Wink

Unfortunately, most of the stuff in my list can't take them - otherwise I'd put them on the Haemonculi (just in case).

I could, but that would mean I couldn't attach a haemonculus to them to give them Fearless on the first turn.

Yeah, that's why my Warlord has scissorhand. Really, I just took the Flesh Guantlet on the other Haemonculus for a bit of variety. But, I'm aware that's a pretty poor reason. tongue

Thanks for the suggestions, guys.
