Not bad. He's pretty dangerous but not a one man army. Keep some support nearby or use him to boost your whyches assault.

Give this guy a destructor. It's better than the fex which I also believe he can't get anyway.

These are lovely, but I would drop the shields. They need to get close and hardly ever survive anyway so keep them cheap.
I hope the whyches have whych weapons. They should ALWAYS have them.

These seem a little wasteful. I prefer to run them in units of 10 with a cannon, a blaster and a poisoned bladed syrabite. They are tougher, more flexible reduce your amount of KP.

Perfect. No better way to run them. :)

Ravagers should never bee within range to use the fex so drop it. The shields are also not very useful IMO as lances only have a 36 range. Most guns pointed at them will still be in range even with them so better save the points.

AAAAIIIIRRRGGHH, you'd be right matie, them Scourges are cool as the eastern winds but the also blow just as much. A 3rd raider with Dizzies will be a better option fer ye raiding party.

Excuse me the pirate talk but it seemed appropiate. Happy gaming.

thanks. the archon is going to stick with one of the wych squads as well as the haemonculi.

hhmm I will have to rework the list with the advise. Let me see what I can do with the advise.

Don't drop the night shields. Add a retinue to your Archon. Put the Homunculi on a skyboard. Drop the scourges to pump up all your raider squads to 10.

Better, but still with a few quirks.

Archangel is unecessary.
Haemonculi 35
Scissor hand, stinger
The stinger is not very good. The destructor is.

Why give them blasters? When will they ever assault a tank? And when aren't they dead meat if they stop up to shoot one?

These guys only cost 161. So there's 30 points right there for you :). Oh, and these dudes are awesome. You won't be disappointed. Unless you waste them of course.

Another reason why the whyches don't need blasters. No tanks will be standing after these guys are done with them.

That's about it I can think of. I'm sure if you make all your whyches 9 strong, drop their blasters and only pay 161 for the raider squads you can include something lovely in your list. At the very least, you can give one of the ravagers 3 dizzies. You have plenty of lances i'd say.

Blasters are assault, so are for wyches shooting transports and cracking them open so you can assault the crew inside.
