- warriors will be the backbone of this army with reavers, they have always been effective and I'm familiar how to use them. Thanks to Mushkilla, I've learned to play reavers more smartly
- In the previous lists, I usually ran 7-9 strong wych units (as they were so effective back in 5th) , but now they will serve a different role and that's not going to be a suicide unit, but a unit that can counter attack, put pressure on a place where needed and I think running them with Venoms will keep them more safe and offer me some mobile AI fire.
- Succubus goes with Grotesques and Haemonculi with wracks. The wracks are here to serve a support role to warriors for taking the incoming melee threats as well as pairing with grotesques, will be an effective speed bumb.
- No flyer this time.
So any thoughts how this looks like ?
Oh almost forgot! the armies I will play against will mostly be Necrons, Eldar, Orks, daemons, Grey knights and Vanilla marines...... so this is not a tailored list to beat a certain race.
An alternative to wyches is to drop 1 grotesque 6 reavers and wyches altogether and take 2 Beast packs containing 10 khymeras, 4 flocks, 4 masters. They could be used to draw enemy fire / attention away from my troops.
