I want to make a balanced DE list. The models I want to include are at least one unit of incubi, one unit or scourge, and one unit of reavers. I want to start with 1k or 1250pts to start. I was thinking of getting the battlebox, incubi, and scourges. I would also get 2 venoms 1 with the incubi the other with 5 wychs and HW. With the models I like can I make a good balanced list and does anyone have advice of a good 1k to 1250pts list with the stuff I like? I know a lot of people dislike scourge but man their models are awesome.

Was looking to order some stuff asap. I read that article but I am more or less asking if scourge are that weak that they will hinder my list. I am thinking something like this if an actual list idea helps.

10 warriors in a raider
2x5 wychs in venoms
scourge w blasters
reavers heat lances
5xincubi venom
ravager.

Scourges are very expensive for what they do and are not the best at that job.

140 gets you the 5x Scourges w/ 2x Blasters.
173 gets you 4x Trueborn w/ 4x Blasters in a Venom w/ double Splinter Cannon

They'll do the job and your list won't fail purely because of that, but it's not optimal. If you don't care about optimal and care, instead, about the deliciously sexy models, go Scourges.

But the models are gorgeous. Since anyone in this thread keeps telling this,
I thought, I mention it as well.

What HQ do you want to use? Should it be a cabal, a cult, or a circle?
Your list looks like a mix, so a haemi, or 2, could be useful. And that makes wracks troops choices.

Not a fan of the haemi model wise I like the looks of the archon or succubus.

You cant go too wrong with 2 Battleforces, 2 Ravagers and an HQ of your chosing. Maybe couple of Venoms. THat will give you core of an army and later you can try some special units like Incubi or Scourges.

Hmmm I might try scourges later but definetly want some incubi. I am actually leaning toward venom spam as I like the looks of them over the raiders.

Incubi are really cool, but they need a model with phantasm grenade launcher.
I usually team them up with my archon, fitted with husk blade, soultrap, combat drugs,
phantasm grenade launcher, combat drugs and, when I have some points to spare, with haywire grenades.

Jeah, expensive, I know. But that is an absolute killer squad.

Sweet thanks I will try that with 4 in a venom with 2x5 wychs with hw in a venom and 2z5 warriors in venom and a ravager. Once I add reavers it should be close to 1k.

Try a Klaivex, too. His onslaught rule can give you some extra attacks.
A bloodstone might be useful, but honestly, it hasn't been for me more than two, or three times...
