So, I know what everyone thinks about them... ugh, archons court, what a waste... but recently I was looking at them and thinking... and honestly, I've decided they aren't too bad... yeah, lhameans should upgrade the entire squads weapons, and yeah, her powers don't work worth a flip on the archon, since it doesn't give him a "free" venom sword, but he still gets a + poison pistol so... but at 12", you get 2 2+ poison shots, and 9 4+ poison shots, along with two medusa templates str d6+1, ap d6. In CC, on the charge you get 6 2+poison attacks, 4 str 3 attacks, and 23 str 5 attacks. Combine that with an archon with a djinn blade (6+2 pw attacks), and you're looking at an extremely formidable force... the eyebursts alone have the potential of wiping a small squad, disregarding the poison shots and rather nasty assault force....
So, that being said, why dont we see these more often? They don't take up a force org slot, and I don't think they are terribly overpriced (the ur ghuls might should cost a few points less), but honestly, it seems to me that people are just caught up on the lhameans (which for a 10 point venom blade/stinger pistol, and upgrading your archons pistol to a stinger, isnt a bad deal)
No tears, please. It's a waste of good suffering.
