Id appreciate any comments on this list, its my first:w00t:
w/ combat drugs
w/ shadow field
7 wyches w/wyche weapons
1 succubus w/agoniser
all above in raider
2 sniper squads
What? 2 points left???
Give the Dracon a splinter pistol for 1 pt and get the +1 attack in cc (well worth 1 pt!)
Give the Wych Succ plasma grenades for 1 pt. Be sure to list the splinter pistol, its free and it gives +1 attack in cc (cheaper than giving the Dracon the plasma g's).
How did you get 498? With my additions (2 points) I am getting 493. If I am correct, give the succ wych weapons and with 6 points left I would buy a trophy rack - you can give it to the Dracon if he/she is staying with the wyches OTHERWISE I would consider giving it to the Succ because of the small wych squad and will probably break after 2 die.
Others may comment on your strategy and who you might be facing - if you can give us more info on who are fighting...

Thanks for the comments. Just to recap and to show you how i calculated points total...Well the army is sitting at:
1 Dracon w/Shadow field, agoniser and combat drugs and splinte pistol= 106
7wyches, one succubus w/agoniser all with wyche weapons = 132
Raider w/ dissie =60
Sniper sqaud =100
Sniper Squad =100
Just a bit of background, I'm playing in my first game with two old friends.(we all decided to give table top games a go, so we're all pretty new to it) one necron and one Emporers Children.
The Necron Army is going to consist of Warriors, a lord with a veil and probably a heavy dest and a wraith.
The Emporers Children is consist of a lord and 6 demonettes and a unit of emporers children (1 box)
When coming up against the emporers children i was hoping to dark lance a turn or 2then charge with the Dracon and wyches. Wyches going for the EC marines and the lord going for the HQ or Deamonettes. Meanwhile the DL is potting off what ever else there is.
When coming up against Necrons i'm not sure cuz i cant wait for them to be close enought to chargecuz they might veil behind my raider then shoot it whilst everything is inside it!!! ouch!!!
I could easily charge the wraith and HD and shoud pich up some easy points i think....
There was talk of upping the points tally to 750, in which case i'd just add a unit of 9 wyches and one succubus w/agoniser in another dissie and raider....
but what do you think... i'm meeting them 9 december so i need to get all this painting done...
I have been reading my codex and all the posts on the forum (which is pretty informative i must add) so thats as far as my knowledge goes...
I'd really appreciate any help or hints. I hope those guys don't read this cuz then my strat is ruined!
quick q: if a unit is attacking with a pisotl and handweapon it gets an additional attack... is it at the pistol's strength or the hand weapon (wrt agoniser and pistol) ???
another quick q: If i charge i get +1 attack... does it add to the splinter cannon too i.e. i.e. does it go from assault 4 to assault 5? and are these splintercannons useful against armoursaves of 3+? like marines and necrons?
thanks in advance.
the pistol only gives you +1 attack, the attack is made with the models strength or whatever weapon you might have.
for example an archon with agoniser and pistol who has a base attack of 3.
you would get +1 for the pistol so 4 attacks, and 5 on the charge.
you can either use 5 attacks at the base str3 or the agonisers special rules.
attacking and shooting has nothing to do with each other. you can NEVER use a shooting weapon in hand to hand(unless stated in the units special rules), nor do you count any assault bonuses to your ranged weapon.
enough shots and anything goes down :yes:

btw we are increasing it to 750 points.
What if i just upgraded the Dracon to and Arcon, added a raider with 10 Wyches... Kinda close to an additional 250...
so much painting.
since you are increasing to 750 may i recommend a ravager or 2. These things are awsome with taking marines down with dissies and when armed with dark lances can negate those warriors the cursed WWB save. Since with necrons you will undoubtably be left in the open if you assault them because your oponent will certainly veil them away living your wyches to get shot up. With the emperor's children you wont have any real problems even with their warp scream you would still be faster with your dracon and wyches.

And then there as those days when it gets hosed down with some plasma.......as it happened today damn you tau crisis suits!! :mad:
