So I've had a busy weekend and wanted to throw my change into the bucket.
*Wyches- They need some sort of protection from shooting. If it's getting their dodge save in overwatch I would be happy. Simple and makes them more viable without giving them to much.
*Bloodbrides- Open up the weapons options. 4 wych weapons to every 5 man squad. I also wouldn't mind ghostplate as an option just because I like ghostplate and dislike dying in raider explosions. The armor is probably a points sink but, hey options.
*Wych Weapons- Give them all rending and be done with it. The re-roll to wound on hydra gauntlets are nice and I would be sad to see it go but, I'd rather just standardize the options. Plus, then I could use models with razor flails.
A final wish for wyches. A minor points drop please. They are a strength 3 toughness 3 melee unit.
*Incubi- Grenades and maybe a reason to take demi-klaives. I like this unit and love that they got a minor points drop.
HQs- When a faction is taking a 10 point minor character instead of taking a proper HQ something is wrong and GW should want to fix it. Our gear isn't terrible but, it leaves something to be desired and we could use more utility on them as well.
The Archon needs his teeth back. The Huskblade losing its AP 2 hurts badly. The only reason I've been taking him in lists is because the Shadowfield makes him more surviable than our other HQs. He sucks these days and it makes me sad.
So how to fix him? First off, let the Archon take a jetbike, skyboard or even scourge wings. Then give him a way to manipulate reserves. Even if it's only through a piece of wargear. With all the deepstriking our codex has and the push to use flyers (I think GW wants us to field flyers) this would help so much. I do not want to have to hope for a good roll on the warlord table to make a list work and I want to be able to do so without allies. Bonus points if it can negatively effect enemy reserves. I feel this would be fluffy as an Archon should be a master of just as planned having fought his way into control of a kabal.
*Heamonculus- Let them get clone fields. It's not much to ask for and would be useful on an HQ that doesn't really have a bunch going for it outside of only minor utility. I haven't managed to think of exactly what it should be yet but, I think the Heamie needs something more. Other factions have psychic abilities, orders or markerlights to buff units. This guy could bring more to the table. Reroll to wounds in a unit he joins would be nice or let posions wound on 3+ instead of 4? Maybe a piece of gear to improve FnP by 1? GW could make this guy far more interesting and useful.
*Succubus- I like her currently and use her as a secondary HQ often. If she dies leading a vanguard of grotesques or incubi it's okay my Archon is probably hanging out in the back trying to keep my opponent from getting slay the warlord. She murders other HQs aside from geared out Chaos Lords or Marine Chapter Masters geared for CC. Though, occasionally she gets popped by a power fist or something high strength.
*The Djin blade- Causes opponents in a challenge to lose (x) amount of ws. Hopefully, enough so as to make the bearer only able to be hit on 5+ or better yet a 6. Allow saves to be taken against the potential wound. Not great as it's still only ap 3 and an Archon is still only strength 3 but, I'd at least consider it.
*Fliers- Razorwings getting vector dancer would be glorious and maybe a points drop on shatterfield missles. The Voidraven needs a small points drop and an option to buy more bombs and a drop in points for missles would also help convince me to take one. Tank hunter could be interesting on this unit as well and give us more power against superheavies or armor in general. Also, strength D on the bomb.
*Flesh Titan- I'm still very okay with this idea. We need a LoW and after browsing Red Corsair's gallery http://www.dakkadakka.com/gallery/images-28269-45027_Dark%20Eldar.html
I'm sold that we could have a nice looking and effective model. Maybe with 4 arms?
*Lord of War- Vect would be great. Hopefully, He brings army wide buffs, orbital bombardment at strength D and a horde of pleasure slaves. Honestly, I'm not sure what sort of rules he should have but, a LoW is something we deserve.
*Formations- This is were our army is falling behind in the current codex power creep. A formation to allow assault from the webway would be great. I think this topic could honestly use it's own thread entirely and could allow us to make armies more fluffy and yet still powerful.
*Final thoughts- Something I haven't seen brought up are models, box sets and the like. A kit that builds three grotesques would improve the model line. Also, Sslyths. I would love to field a large unit of these guys as my Archon's escort but, haven't found a conversion that I like enough to invest in and I don't want to buy 8 or more single models. Beastpacks could also use a box set.
