2000pts Ynnari + Flayed Skull Empty
PostSubject: 2000pts Ynnari + Flayed Skull   2000pts Ynnari + Flayed Skull I_icon_minitimeTue Sep 03 2019, 23:54

I mentioned this list in the 'Blasters on Reavers' debate and thought I'd put it here to (hopefully) get some more feedback.

I've made a couple of changes since posting it there - most notably swapping out the Outrider for a Battalion.

Ynnari (Drukhari) Battalion:
- Archon w/ Huskblade, Blaster, PGL, The Hungering Blade (Warlord: Lord of Rebirth) - 96
- Yncarne w/ Gaze of Ynnead, Ancestor's Grace - 337
5 Kabalite Warriors w/ Blaster - 47
5 Kabalite Warriors w/ Blaster - 47
5 Kabalite Warriors w/ Blaster - 47
3 Reavers w/ Blaster - 74
3 Reavers w/ Blaster - 74
3 Reavers w/ Blaster - 74

Flayed Skull Battalion:
- Archon w/ Huskblade, Splinter Pistol, Djin Blade - 76
- Archon w/ Agoniser, Splinter Pistol - 72
5 Kabalite Warriors w/ Blaster - 47
5 Kabalite Warriors w/ Blaster - 47
5 Kabalite Warriors w/ Blaster - 47
3 Lhamaeans - 45
5 Mandrakes - 80
- Ravager w/ 3x Disintegrator - 125
- Ravager w/ 3x Disintegrator - 125
- Razorwing Jetfighter w/ 2x Disintegrator, Splinter Rifle - 135
- Venom w/ Splinter Rifle - 65
- Venom w/ Splinter Rifle - 65
- Venom w/ Splinter Rifle - 65
- Venom w/ Splinter Rifle - 65
- Venom w/ Splinter Rifle - 65
- Raider w/ Disintegrator - 80

2000pts (12CP)

Warriors will go in the Raider and 4 of the Venoms. The 2 Flayed Skull Archons will likely go in the last Venom with the Lhamaeans. Mandrakes and Reavers will be used to set up teleportation spots for the Yncarne (hopefully doing some damage in the meantime). Warlord Archon has several options, depending on what I'm up against. He could stay with the Ravagers, he run on foot and snipe with his Blaster or he could take the place of one of the Archons in the Lhamaean Venom and get stuck in with his Hungering Blade (he originally had Corag Hai's Locket but I took some advice from the other thread and swapped it for the Blade). Rest of the list is pretty standard stuff.

Any thoughts?

I like the list, lots of little thorns with all that darklight. Only thing that irks me is the 3 archons. If you can find points, you can swap a flayed skull archon for yvraine or the visarch (yvraine is better) without losing flayed skull perks. Otherwise to me that 3rd archon is useless.

One thing you can do is make the djinn blade archon the warlord and use the exalted of ynnead strat to make the ynnari archon have a trait too. You can do it with the yncarne as your warlord too, which I personally like, but that's risky.

That's a fair point regarding the Archons (honestly I think the first is pointless but such is life Wink ).

The one thing I like about having the Ynnari Archon as my Warlord is that I have a chance to resurrect him if he dies.

But yeah, that might still be worth considering for the extra Warlord trait. It would also let me give an artefact to the second Archon for just 1CP.

I'm not a fan of having the Yncarne as my Warlord as I think he'll already be a big target and this way I can be more aggressive with him without risking my warlord.

Anyway, I'll have a think if there's anything I'd be willing to drop for a few extra points to either upgrade the third Archon or else swap him out for one of the other Ynnari characters.

Thanks for the feedback. Smile

Okay, I've had a go at revising the list:

Ynnari (Drukhari) Battalion:
- Archon w/ Huskblade, Blaster, The Hungering Blade (Exalted of Ynnead: Lord of Rebirth) - 93
- Yncarne w/ Gaze of Ynnead, Ancestor's Grace - 337
5 Kabalite Warriors w/ Shredder - 38
5 Kabalite Warriors w/ Shredder - 38
5 Kabalite Warriors w/ Shredder - 38
3 Reavers w/ Blaster, Grav Talon - 77
3 Reavers w/ Blaster, Grav Talon - 77
3 Reavers w/ Blaster, Grav Talon - 77

Flayed Skull Battalion:
- Archon w/ Huskblade, Blaster, The Obsidian Veil - 93 (Warlord: Soul Thirst)
- Archon w/ Huskblade, Splinter Pistol, Djin Blade - 76
5 Kabalite Warriors w/ Blaster - 47
5 Kabalite Warriors w/ Blaster - 47
5 Kabalite Warriors w/ Blaster - 47
3 Lhamaeans - 45
5 Mandrakes - 80
- Ravager w/ 3x Disintegrator - 125
- Ravager w/ 3x Disintegrator - 125
- Razorwing Jetfighter w/ 2x Disintegrator, Splinter Rifle - 135
- Venom w/ Splinter Rifle - 65
- Venom w/ Splinter Rifle - 65
- Venom w/ Splinter Rifle - 65
- Venom w/ Splinter Rifle - 65
- Venom w/ Splinter Rifle - 65
- Raider w/ Disintegrator - 80

2000pts (10CP)

I couldn't afford the Visarch or Yvraine without removing too much stuff. However, I think I've at least managed to give the third Archon more of a role.

I've made one of the FS Archons my Warlord, but rather than the Djin Blade I gave him the Obsidian Veil (I thought it made sense for my Warlord to choose protection over offence), and a Blaster as well. This also freed up the Djin Blade for the third Archon - meaning he can now lead the charge (and, as before, it doesn't matter if he dies). The Ynnari Archon can now be more aggressive, though I've left his wargear and warlord trait the same as I'd like to test the combination (in case I want to switch back to him being my warlord in future).
