This season I am getting the battle-force set and a venom. However I am unable to decide what would be best to run. With 10x warriors, 10x wyches, 1x raider and 1x venom.

Option 1:
Elites- x5 Trueborn w 4 blasters in venom w 2 splinter cannons.
Troops- x10 wyches w 2 hydra gauntlets and hekatrix w agoniser in raider w flicker.

Option 2:
Elites- x5 Trueborn w 3 carbines & 2 splinter cannons in venom w 2 splinter cannons
Troops- x10 wyches w 2 hydra gauntlets and hekatrix w agoniser in raider w flicker.

Option 3:
Elites- X10 Bloodbrides w 3 hydra gauntlets and syren w agoniser in raider w flicker.
Troops- 5x Warriors w |what to arm with?| in venom with 2 splinter cannons.

If you have any suggestions or dark knowledge to impart my pointy ears are wide open.
If you have any more options |4+| then please post them because I would love to hear.

Without seeing the rest of your army, this is kind of awkward to answer.

Overall, Option 1 looks 'most competitive' to me, though Option 3 isn't bad depending what else you're doing. (and you arm the Warriors with a Blaster)

Thats a good point thor but right now I am not compleatly sure of the rest of my list. After xmas I will be running 3 haemon, 27 wracks as troops, 3 reavers, a ravager and a razorwing.

The reason I was asking about them alone was becasue I chose troops first and I just wanted to know what these models would be better suited for on there own. Are trueborn better then bloodbrides in the slot for Elites or should warriors stay warriors for the kick ass Elites?

So the real question is: what do I build with 10 warrior and 10 wytch models? Because the vehicles... its quite simple Razz (though I suggest magnitizing weapons).

For troops, I'd say wytches are probably the best option. Very fast, invul in CC and can be given the disruption grenades for some antitank.

Warriors... I'd focus on small units with big guns.

So... I'd build as many warriors with blaster as possible... and still use them as trueborn if needed Smile

Good hunting!

You could put 5 warriors w/blaster in a venom as another scoring choice and have 5 trueborn with 3 dark lances for an anti-tank squad

Wow thats alot of good advice; thanks guys. Originaly I wanted to use my trueborn as anti infantry as there is ALOT of horde armys in my local group [Even the space marines are hordes; bloddy fall back forward templars] and was thinking that having small mobile units of massed splinter fire wound be usefull. What do you all think

Elites- x5 Trueborn w 3 carbines & 2 splinter cannons in venom w 2 splinter cannons.160pts.

Thats not very expensive for 29 splinter shots IMO |and using the name splinterborn is cool|

They're called Dakkaborn, iirc Very Happy It's a good unit, but concentrated Darklight is hard to come by while anti-infantry can be done by just about any other unit in the codex.

Two Wink also 3 man squad is... probably one* of most point-efficient "Devastator unit". add Venom for duality.



*absolutely nothing can beat Lootas, 5 Autocannons for 75 points...
