Correct, Sir!

The only reason I am running such an Archon (I am aware a Haemonculi would be more points efficient and give some handy bonuses) is because I felt I needed at least a little combat muscle.

True. Besides, Huskblade/Soul Trap Archons have a well deserved fearsome reputation, which may entice your opponent into focussing on him, rather than the rest of your force.

Then you can punish him.

It's good, the only suggestion I have is to take flickerfields instead of nightshields on the flyer so you don't ever have to evade. I always take nightshields only on everything with the only exception of flyers.

Hmm, do you think it would be worth removing the Combat Drugs from the Archon to free up the points for that?

I do agree, not having to evade would be a big bonus and would probably deliver more points that what the Drugs would get me? (As a realist, I do not expect to slay the opponents HQ every battle).

Combat drugs aren't even useful unless you plan on putting the Archon in a squad of Wyches, or roll the lucky 6 for splintermind. FF on Razorwings is big, but since you can't control movement all that much because of minimum movement requirements, I suggest simply taking off nightshields.

Do you support the idea of swapping the Razorwing for a Voidraven?

I hmm'd and haa'd about it, but thought the 4 missiles on the Razorwing made it preferable.

I do like voidravens, the s9 lance is way better. I think your list has plenty of anti-infantry, and doesn't need what the razorwing provides.


I love your avatar btw.

Hmm, I can see your point, there. You'd run the Voidraven with just Flickerfields, then?

and, thanks!

Well, if I was running pure DE, and needed and anti-air role. Yes, that is probably what i would do. However, I usually play with some Eldar allies, so I am able to do things like fortune warwalkers, or use waveserpents to down air.

I would also want to buy a shatterfield or two to deal with swarms of scarabs etc, as that is one role our Venoms can;t deal with.
