Hello,

New to the group and starting a 500 point Drukhari list.
I'm torn between a Kabal or Coven (not a fan of Wyches Aesthetic).

So I'm thinking

Kabal
Archon
2 Squads of Kabalites
Raider
Ravager
and a Venom if points allow

OR

Coven
Heamonculous
2 Squads of Wracks (liquifiers)
2 x Venoms
Talos
and maybe Grotesques if points allow

any thoughts on these would be appreciated. Thank you.

For starting out Drukhari, I would highly recommend starting out as kabal over coven, simply because monetary cost wise, coven is going to be significantly higher as wracks are twice as expensive as our other troops for reasons beyond me. Also if you can find the old Dark Eldar start collecting box, which came with an archon, raider, 10 kabalites and 3 reavers that's a pretty good discount on the core options you need for kabal, and you could always sell off the reavers if you don't want to have any wych cult units at all. There's also the kabalite skysplinter box you can sometimes find on ebay, nice discounted box that comes with 10 kabalites and a raider.

For a list, an archon, 2 x5 kabalites with a blaster each, a raider, a venom and a triple disintegrator cannon ravager puts you at about 460pts. I think that's a solid starter force, and when you build to 1000pts you can basically just double what you have to fill out a kabalite battalion, or you can go for adding on some coven forces.

Thank you for the response.
If money was not an issue, would you still recommend Kabal vs Coven?

At that point, it's more about the playstyle you seek. Do you prefer fast transports that shoot from everywhere or a slow and unstoppable army?

Keep in mind those first 500 points will be the foundation of a bigger army. Look at how you want your whole army to behave. It's nice to have 500 pts of coven, but if you don't want to expand this way, it's wasted.

It's really down to personal preference then, do you want the coven models more first or the kabalite ones.

Went with Kabal in the end, think they will be a better base to build on.
Archon, Kabalites, Raider and Scourges in the post....building and painting to go!
