So far what I drafted up would be the duke with some trueborn in a raider with 2 splinter cannons and 7 shardcarbines. Any other suggestions?

Depends. If you plan on deepstrike you need to have solid core on the ground. Solid core doesnt mean raider of venom mounted squads, bar maybe Grotesques.

If you want to use his drug thing - you have to build army around those units that uses them, and Duke will kinda just be there.

As for poison 3+, thats just nice little beenfit of having Duke.

And you probably either go Drug Way, or Deepstrike way.

Buckets of Wyches and Reavers to take advantage of the more reliable drugs.

Add 3 Ravagers or 2 Ravagers and a flyer of your choice and you'd be golden.


If you're feeling more adventurous, I've seen some Duke Lists take the 2 to 4 of the following unit:

5 Kabs 155 points
+ Blaster, Sybarite, Blast Pistol
+ Raider

The plan being to deepstrike them next to or behind tanks and blow 'em up. As a source of anti-tank in the troops slot, thus letting your ravagers bring dissies or not run ravagers.
