Yeah I'll probably tweak the incubi a bit, just because I want to get a Klaivex in there with Demi-Klave for a modeling opportunity. Drop them down to 8 and I think I have enough spare points to do that. Other then that though, its mostly what I was playing last year, just swapping the Baron + Hellions out for Archon + Incubi. I guess I also dropped the Wyches for another Reaver squad, but I like how this one looks on the table, just need to get those paints to give it a few tests.

I recently heard on a podcast that a fun way to deal with a Draigo or equivalent is the Crucible of Malediction..... if it eats a paladin squad, or draigo or something, the incubi can really jump in for the slaughter! i like how killy they are! consider the hemonculous will leave them with a token, and i'm not totally advocating the loss of the archon, he's needed to make a real threat.

Hemo's can be quite cheap, I was thinking that if I drop down to 7 Incubi I could then take one (close anyway), and I do have one painted. :]

1500 Points, the list we played last night. I found that I must have messed up my math somewhere when I built the list, as I had a ton of extra points, like 60 to throw some upgrades around, and fill out that Scourge unit like we talked about. Still have 21 (at 1500) to play with so will tweak it a bit.

Haemo - 50
Liquifier - 10
Venom Blade - 5
65

9 Wracks - 90
Acothyst - 10
Agonizer - 20
Liquifier - 10
Raider w/Flicker - 70
200

3 Blasterborn - 81
Venom w/2 SC - 65

the only two things I see, both of which are minor, and can be done without.

One, you don't have any real Tricks, outside of poison and movement; maybe a Crucible, or other neat wargear on Hemo?

Two, you only have One (and it's dedicated) CC unit. as you saw last night, it can be stranded/avoided. I'd add one wych unit.... or another wrack unit (I know you won't buy the models) to be the hammer for the Hemo anvil.... the guns are punchy, but for a fragile force, you are really accentuating the Glass Cannon.

Maybe tweak things a bit and see about fitting a Beastmaster unit in? They are pretty maneuverable on their own and are one of the better assault units in the book.

EDIT: Probably have to drop the scourge, or one of the MSU warriors to really do it at 1500.

Another option, instead of a secondary assault unit, maybe just turn the Scourge into a really uber shooting unit?

This still leaves me with 68 points. I could turn a Blasterborn squad into a Wych squad, though looking at this, I start to feel like I am losing too much AT/High STR/AP firepower.

Haemo - 50
Liquifier - 10
Venom Blade - 5
65

3 Blasterborn - 81
Venom w/2 SC - 65
146

10 Wyches - 100
Hekatrix - 10
Agonizer - 20
Hydra Gauntlets - 10
Raider - 70
210

9 Wracks - 90
Acothyst - 10
Liquifier - 10
Raider w/Flicker - 70
180

5 Warrior
Blaster
Venom w/2 SC
125

5 Warrior
Blaster
Venom w/2 SC

10 Scourge
Splinter Cannon x 4
260
24 shots at 18 inches - Assault (Shardcarbines)
16 shots at 36 inches - Assault OR 24 shots at 36 inches - Heavy (4 Splinter Cannon)

Who needs to assault when you have an effective shooting range of 30 inches for 40 shots at BS4 and poison?

Razorwing w/Flicker - 155
Ravager w/Flicker - 115
Ravager w/Flicker - 115
