My previous list had Incubi and Wyches in and I'm sad to see them go but I really want to give Scourges and Reavers a go having not used them with the current codex.


What do you guys think?

Nice list, though now that archons are worth a slay the warlord victory point I think it would be worth trying to get a shadow field on him, venom blade comes in handy too. Especially seeing as he is sitting in a high priority target (aka the trueborn venom). The shadow field can be used to tank all the hits from the vehicle explodes result, which will help keep your blasterborn alive that little bit longer. I would drop all the Sybarites, you don't need LD9 on squads of 10 warriors. Another thing, do you need four blasters in the blaster born squad considering they are riding with the archon? Four blaster shots, one at BS7 should be more than enough to kill most things. I think five is overkill.

Hope that helps. Very Happy

You clearly haven't seen me roll a Shadow Field save before Wink

It does help, thank you!

Following your suggestions (Dropping one trueborn, dropping sybarites, adding shadowfield and venomblade) leaves me with 32pts to spend.

For 15pts I could get an arena champ with venomblade, but then I can't find any where to spend the last 17pts.

Maybe I could swap the Reaver's Blasters for Heat Lances and then I'd have enough points for a Cluster Caltropes upgrade?

Whadd'ya think?

Never take cluster caltrops and blasters/heat lances in the same unit. You only benefit from caltrops if you Bladevane, and you have to turbo-boost to do that, forgoing your chance at shooting. And given how expensive caltrops are, if you buy them, you are going to want to maximise their use, making the gun upgrades a waste.

Hmm, okay, any other suggestions? I can't think of anything else.

your elites cost at 183 pts, rather than 173 pts.

There's no kill like overkill in the dark eldar lexicon.
