Well, if you want to bring back any of the old ones, I can offer suggestions for their rules:Duke Sliscus
WS2+ BS2+ S3 T3 W4 A4 Ld9 Sv4+
The Serpent’s Blades: Melee S: User AP-2 D2 Poison 2+ A wound roll of 5+ is resolved at AP-6 The user makes one additional attack with this weapon.
PfP, Combat Drugs, Shadowfield, Ghostplate ArmourThe Serpent’s Venom:
Before deployment, choose one unit of Kabalites or Trueborn. That unit’s Poison Weapons get +1 to wound.
Low-Orbit Raid: If your army includes Duke Sliscus, you may use the Screaming Jets stratagem one additional time. The first use costs 0CP.Contraband:
If Duke Sliscus is your warlord, each non-vehicle <Kabal> character in your army gains the Combat Drugs ability. In addition, all CULT models in your army may choose one additional Combat Drug or roll one additional time on the Combat Drugs table.Raid Master:
If Duke Sliscus is your Warlord, he is treated as a Master Archon for the purposes of including Trueborn. In this case, your army cannot include another Master Archon from the same <Kabal>.Lady Malys
(Kabal of the Poisoned Tongue)
WS2+ BS2+ S3 T3 W5 A5 Ld9 Sv4+
The Lady’s Blade: Melee S+1 AP-3 D1 Before making her attacks, Lady Malys may activate the full power of the blade. In this case, she makes two additional attacks and her blade gets +1 to wound rolls and damage rolls. However, if two or more of her attack rolls are natural 1s, this ability cannot be used again for the remainder of the game.Steel Fan:
Melee attacks against Lady Malys suffer -1 to wound rolls.Foresight:
Lady Malys has a 4+ invulnerable save. In addition, hit rolls against Lady Malys cannot be rerolled.The Crystal Heart:
Lady Malys and DRUKHARI INFANTRY units with a model within 3” of her cannot be targeted by psychic powers, nor affected by psychic powers in any way.Precognisant:
Once per phase, Lady Malys may treat a single attack roll, wound roll, or saving throw as having rolled a 6. This decision may be made after rolling the dice.Raid Mistress:
If Lady Malys is your Warlord, she is treated as a Master Archon for the purposes of including Trueborn. In this case, your army cannot include another Master Archon from the Kabal of the Poisoned Tongue.
Insofar as possible, I tried to keep them consistent with their old rules. W4 on the Duke isn't a misprint (he was only W2 in 5th). The Duke is a little weird in that he buffs Cult units. I was thinking of letting him hand out drugs to <Kabal> units, but then that would have resulted in every Kabalite unit having BS2+.
With Lady Malys, I changed precognisant (as the old rules were basically the same as the current PT stratagem) and also tried to update her blade a bit. Otherwise, mostly just tweaks to try and bring her in line with current rules.
No idea about costs at this point. Would have to look at the finalised Archon.
