I was wondering if you all could help me with my archon builds. I will be putting him with a squad of incubi and a hamy with a agoniser. He will have a pgl because it is already glued on, but both his arms came off so now I have the chance to change his load out. previously He had a venom blade and huskblade with a soul trap. what would you recommend for him to have. Also, I will custom build an archon for the crusade me and my friends will be doing and all the battles will be apocalypse so I was wondering what He should have if he is in a court.(fluff crusade, but I don't want him to suck to bad) Thanks in advance!

depends on what you want him to do.
If you want him to be a challenger, then a huskblade/soultrap is a great combo
If you want him to be a beatstick, agoniser/power axe is your best bet
If you want him for cheap, venomblade
If your running him with incubi, they have the AP2 covered. So its really up to you. Fit him to his roll, and make sure he keeps it that way.
P.S. I would probably run the haemie w/ a power axe. Its cheaper than an Agoniser, and probably better on him

This is the Archon I'll be taking to Caledonian Uprising, a competitive event in January used as a qualifier for the scottish ETC team.
Archon with shadow field, combat drugs, ghostplate armour, soul trap, power spear, venom blade, shadowfield 140
Considering I've only ever used either a succubus or haemo as HQ's in tournies and I have no time to playtest this due to real-life commitments gettiing in the way it remains to be seen if it's going to do anything. Plan is to use the power spear on the charge, as its +1 strength ap3 and I may get something useful on combat drugs, but he's in the same squad as a Farseer so hopefully the unit will be doomed and I can re-roll wounds anyways. If the combat becomes protracted he swithces to the venom blade as the spear turns useless after the charge (strength as user, ap4.) Challenge any IC's or MC's, then if succesful soul trap. On the next charge archon is S7 (or 8 dependent if he has furious charge or not) ap3. just for a bit of experimentation
Death? You want death?
I'm afraid that would be far too boring...
