Guess who's back?
In true Archon fashion, I rear my wrathful head again after a long slumber in my Pain Sarcophagus.
So, 8th edition is here and it seems like GW took away our butterknives and gave us REAL WEAPONS. >: )
The principle of this thread still holds true: Gloat about the performance of your Kabal/Wychcult/Coven or condemn those useless fools which failed to deliver you onto victory!
Last Saturday I played a game against Tyranids. 58 powerlevel. I was eager to try out Wyches and see how we perform in the new edition. Boy oh boy was I in for a surprise!
My vehicles seemed very durable (for paperboats). One Raider even survived being charged by the Swarmlord himself!
Highlights have to be my four Grotesques and their Haemonculus disembarking from their Raider after the Swarmlord charged it and then proceeded to show him true pain by bringing him down to 1 wound and killing him in the next round. Mortal wounds, baby!
I gave my ten Wyches Hydra Gauntlets and +1 attack. The Succubus got the Warlord Trait for +1 Attack on the charge and +1T for drugs. She mopped up a squad of 12 Hormagants on her own and the Wyches just murdered a ten man squad of Genestealers.
Everything feels very... fluent. The gameturns are quick and there is still loads of tactical depth to it. It seems that we finally have our bite back and I think we will take many players by surprise since our vehicles don't explode to a stiff breeze and our Darklight weapons + improved CC units really make us a force to be reckoned with!
