    Starter Wych Cult 500pts er... 554...

    Ok, I tried to make a 500pt mech Wych Cult army but it really didn't work out... Here's what I have planned. Anyone recommend how to trim it down?

    HQ:
    Archite w/agoniser, splinter pistol, wych weapons, combat drugs, shadow field=141pts

    Troops:
    Wych Squad w/9 wyches with splinter pistol/CCW, wych weapons, Wych Succubus with agoniser, splinter pistol, wych weapons, raider with dark lance=213pts
    Wych Squad w/8 wyches with splinter pistol/CCW, wych weapons, Wych Succubus with agoniser, splinter pistol, wych weapons, raider with dark lance=200pts

    That's it. The Archite is supposed to join the second Wych Squad on the first turn of battle and then mount up in the raider and take off. The first things that pop out to me to trim off are the succubuses' agonisers and amek the Archite a Dracite. What do you all think? Thanks for the imput!

    drachite definitly. Than cut the Sybarite with agoniser in the drachites squad or cut out 2 of the wyches. I like numbers rather than power but we aren't the guard so you might want to cut the wyches. Also don't pay for wych weapons with the drachite as I am more than sure the entry in the drachite section says the drachite is assumed to come with wych weapons.

    Might want to add haywire grenades to one of the squads as I would be worried that my raiders would get shot down and I would be helpless against heavy armor. Of course that is because I am paranoid.

    Still this is going to be by nature a very very fragile army. When you win you are going to WIN and when you lose it isn't even going to be close. If you are ok with that than build it.

    Wych cults are starting to sound cool. Maybe I will build one to play with my coven. Later.

    1. I did not pay for wych weapons for the archite/dracite. I simply included them because it is part of their wargear.
    2. I will trim down the archite to a dracite and see what else can be done.
    3. Ok, here's my new list:

    HQ:
    Dracite w/agoniser, splinter pistol, wych weapons, comat drugs, shadow field=116pts

    Troops:
    Wyches w/succubus with poisoned blades, splinter pistol, wych weapons, and 8 wyches with haywire grenades, SP&CCW, wych weapons, raider with dark lance=217pts
    Wyches w/succubus with SP&CCW, wych weapons, 7 wyches with SP&CCW, wych weapons, and raider with dark lance=167pts

    Total=500pts

    How about that list?

    I don't have my codex on me so forgive me.

    Did you give haywires to the whole squad? I would only give it to the succubus. It is only there in case the raiders go down. Also I personnally don't like poison blades but that was just a bad experience. Seems good though. Wait till someone a bit more experienced comes along though.

    Hmm... I think that just giving them to the succubus would be a good idea. Let me see if I can rework my list here a little..... Oh yeah, I only put the poisoned blades in because I had to burn 5 points. I think I'll remove them in just a second though.

    Okay. My new list is same as before excpet for the following changes:
    1. The first succubus has an agoniser instead of poisoned blades
    2. The haywire grenades are removed from the squad two and only the succubus has them
    3. Both squads now have 8 regular Wyches
    4. The total points is now 498pts

    How's that?
