I included Drazhar because, well, I've had a man-crush on him forever and I thought it would be awesome if he led a realspace raid with a group of Incubi at its core.
The idea is to just get into close combat and wreck some faces, with the raiders provided a quick way to get there and some fire support if they're not blown up. The taloi are for limited AV and more assaulting and the wyches have haywire grenades just in case.
So, any feedback would be welcome on this list and thank you!

This will kill pretty much anything you meet in cc fo sho.
If you use the aetherails then you cant dissembark, so i wouldn't bother with these.
You have so many wyches, that you might consied the duke istead of drazhar, though i know this is the character you want.

Wow, four of these units. I used to love my wyches, as they were so great at killing tanks esp with the haywire. (and used to have blasters, and agonizers that at least glanced vehicles *sigh*) They shoud be pretty good at destroying vehicles with their haywire but you are going to lose most of them if it explodes. They really are only so-so in cc really. Against sm they will get 16 attacks if assaulting (slightly more with hg) so lets say 6 wounds, only 1 or 2 without saves. At best, with luck three dead. A unit of any size or well equiped will answer back in spades. I think I would drop the flickerfield and aethersails, not worth the points, and get another wyche in the squads. You'll probably be moving flat out anyways right?

These guys are such a mixed bag of tricks. The beastmasters themselves are pretty wimpy. The Kymerae's invul save is nice esp with wound allocation rules as they are. The clawed fiend's toughness will be counted as 3 bec of everything else and str 5 attacks are not that hot. I like the razorwing flocks better, but not a lot better. At 165 points this is not that great a unit performance wize. Will probably look great on the table though.

I like the talos toughness and saves, but i don't think this guy gets to the action fast enough. As tank buster, he will have a difficult time catching anything.


Drazhar rules, but this list might need the duke for the increased combat drugs.(if your wyches all get a pain token then this list just becomes much better.) Or maybe take both Asdrubel and the Duke.:shok: (You coauld afford this if you drop the beastmasters)
Maybe a wp to get the taloi in. You also don't have much to deal with meq.

Personally I find Drazhar expensive for what he does but by all means go for it. You can save pts from the Kalvex and onslaught since if memory serves Drazhar comes with the Ability and with the demi klaives.

If I was you I would group the wyches in groups of 10 saving the points from the 2 extra raiders to get a ravager. I find your army a bit weak in the Anti-tank department and a ravager would go a long.

Consider replacing one Talos for a Cronos equipped with a spirit probe. The 2 pain tokens per turn in can provide to any friendly unit within 12" more then makes up for its lack of WS and Str compared to the Talos.

Other then that the list is looking good.

Well, I finally got around to adjusting the list, went with a Webway Suprise list:

HQ: 160pts
Archon:
Blaster, Drug Dispenser, Ghostplate Armour, Shadowfield, Webway Portal

Elites: 183pts
Kabalite Trueborn x4
4x Blaster
Venom (75pts)
Nightshield, Splinter Cannon

Troops: 450pts
Wyches x10: 150pts
Hekatrix, 2x Razorflails x2
10x Haywire grenades

Wyches x10: 150pts
Hekatrix, 2x Razorflails x2
10x Haywire grenades

Wyches x10: 150pts
Hekatrix, 2x Razorflails x2
10x Haywire grenades

Fast Attack:
Reaver Jetbikes x6: 171pts
2x Heat Lance
Arena Champion
Venom Blade

Reaver Jetbikes x6: 176pts
2x Heat Lance
Arena Champion
Power Weapon

Heavy Support:
Cronos Parasite Engine: 90pts
Spirit Probe

Talos Pain Engine: 135pts
Additional close combat weapon, Chain-Flails, Twin-linked heat lance

Talos Pain Engine: 135pts
Additional close combat weapon, Chain-Flails, Twin-linked heat lance

So, how's this one look? The idea is to just throw down the webway, and hopefully get into CC as fast as possible with the wyches, maybe go tank hunting with the taloi or reavers.
