Now we are talking, Incubi have been my favorite unit for a very long time, masters of the art of slaughter they are an absolute terror on the battlefield, lets look!Incubi
Well where to begin, incubi are a premium unit that is entirely dedicated to assault, they pack some of the most eye watering offense in the book and will happily chew through the elite units of most other armies, indeed unless the enemy is a really large monster, a full sized mob of orks or packing a 4+ invun (more of a guide line than a solid rule) incubi will probably be a safe bet to beat it. While incubi are terrifying on offense, defensively they aren't all that tough even though they have a really good armour save that can get to 2+ with the right strat/cover, careful screening and engagement is required to ensure they aren't just a one and done unit.
As character support you cant go wrong they will supplement the damage of your succubi and archons very well. With archons they even have a bit of symbiosis as he buffs them slightly and has the option of taking ancient evil to ensure you don't have to rely on the tormentors.
These guys love the raider, if your incubi walk you are doing it wrong. Not only does the raider keep them from getting shot with small arms, it also provides a critical debuff for their tormentor ability, making it much more likely to succeed.
Few enemy armies are going to want to put units in range of an incubi charge, which can constrict your opponents move phase quite nicely, they are a nice psychological threat that way. That said they are public enemy number one so expect your opponent to work hard dealing with them, be careful with their raider and you should be ok vs deep strikers or fast movers.
Also the klaivex has 2 wounds for some reason hey a free wound I'll take that.
BonusDrazhar master of blades
The big boy himself, he's been hitting the gym since last edition and he is ready to slay. He's exceptionally fighty and will happily murder allot of characters/monster/tanks currently in the game, he's also just as at home threshing hoards with a possible 14 attacks (that hit and wound t4 models on 2+) he will make a sizable dent in most mobs. He is actually also pretty tough to kill having -1 damage against him and a 4+ invun he won't die quickly.
The buffs he brings to incubi are to be frank sickening +1 to wound on a str 5 dude means that you can carve apart some crazy stuff, a full unit of incubi and Drazhar can even bring down a wraith knight in a single round of combat.
Probably a points increase in his future I think, but the new model is fantastic and if i am honest the reason I picked up the hobby again.
"Oh that models nice, I'll buy it to paint."
"I'll get him a bodyguard of incubi too."
"They need a raider for the full display."
"Give me more plastic crack."
That's basically how it went
In short I am a massive fanboy for incubi, I'm planning to field two units of 7 and hopefully kill allot of stuff with them, it's gonna be great.
