This is a pure wych cult army I'm taking to a tournament in October. (This is a way of forcing me to get all my hellions and reaver jet bikes finally painted! Wink ) Some of the choices are for that reason (getting them painted) others are for coolness reasons - ie 36 reaver jetbikes, cool but probably not that practical. I'm not a huge fan of mixing cults but I'm gonna give this ago this time around. Any advice, tweeks etc. appreciated.

I think this list is really going to struggle in a tournament. I love reavers and hellions, but I don't really think they can be the focus of a list. Reavers tie things up well, but don't do enough damage, while hellions can do some reasonable damage especially to multiple wound models, but die the first time a lasgun guardsmen squad looks their way. I think wyches are what really make cult lists work, you need a solid amount of wyches to get stuck in melee and actually hold units there, gives units like hellions more of a chance to survive and go for the weaker targets without getting shot right off the board.

The list as is will also really struggle with anti-vehicle. That many heat lances will do some damage, but it's not terribly efficient. Some razorwing fire support would go a long way to change that.

I think you can run with this theme, but I'd ton down the number of reavers and hellions. Half the reavers, maybe go down to 2 units of 10 hellions, and take a bunch more wyches. Raiders for the wyches might be tough to fit in, so you could try deep striking 2 units, which isn't terribly reliable but it does save pts. It would be a very hit or miss list, the wyches will get into melee, tie a lot of units up and the list will work, or they all fail their charges and you're in a tough spot. If you really want to run tons of reavers and hellions though, I think that's the way to go.

thanks again for the suggestions, I was having great difficulty squeezing in everything I wanted to play into this list. the good news is the points for the tournament went up to 2000 from 1750 which give some more leeway in the army list. I take your point about anti vehicle, need to fix that in the list, off to tweek this list,,,,,,,

I think you can take 3 Raiders (with D canon) to put inside a 9 witch unit and one HQ

And you can add Razorwing jetfighter or Voidraven bomber.
They're Wych cult unit too.
With the good stratagem, you can have a -2 against hit rolls in shooting phase.

Pure wych cults is a lot of fun, but it's definetly the hardest of the pure sub-faction lists to make it work right. You have lots of speed but limited staying power and strength.

I'd definetly second adding a razorwing to the list. 2x razorwings comes in at 290pts with dark lances, which I'd recommend over dissie cannons in a pure cult list when you have limit anti-vehicle. With the extra 250pts you got from the pts going up for the tournament, that's a lot more doable.

Looks great. Small nitpick, but I'd swap the +2 move on the wyches with the +1A on the succubi (the two without the relic), as wyches get more of a benefit from +1A.
