Welcome to Librarium Online!
The warpbeast thread was brought back from the dead and reminded me of a question I have.
Why does the beastmaster who is armed with a SP/Agonizer only get two attacks in CC, while my Wyche Succubus armed with the same gets three? They are both Wyches and have the same weapons and stats, yet she gets 1 less attack.
Probably some fluff reason. 'Part of his actions are given over to maintaining control of the beasties'. blah blah blah.
War Record Since Sept 2005
Old Codex 48-20-9 Dark Eldar
New Codex 1-0-0 Dark Eldar

But how many other "characters" have the exact same stats and weapons yet get different #'s of attacks.
It's probably because she gets an Agoniser for right cheap. The Warp Beast Pack is a steal as is, so they probably dropped her down one attack for balance purposes.
Uhh...why not question what's in the codex and just play using the stat line?
It's like complaining that Grotesque models look like creepy warriors (with armor), yet they get no armor save.
its cause the wych succubus is an upgraded wych and the beastmaster is just a regular wych
what a long strange trip its been
like its been said....its just because of fluss reasons.
Wyches are expert gladiators who love shedding blood and train constantly in their deadly arts when not actually fighting.
The Beastmaster is a Wych who specializes in the capturing, handling and fighting of various deadly beasts (Genestealers, Warp Beasts) rather than battling against sentient lifeforms (humans, other Wyches, etc).
A Succubus is a master gladiator who is more skilled and experienced than the other Wyches. Succubi are leaders of groups of Wyches, they are about the equivalent of Kabalite Sybarites.
So a Beastmaster is basically a normal Wych with a specialized role, while a Succubus is an uber-Wych. There's the fluff reason for the Succubus +1A. The gameplay reason is just that GW tend to give units the option to upgrade a model to a minor character with the same stats except for +1A. (Bear in mind that fluffwise, a Succubus would be considerably more skillful than her underlings, while a Wych Lord would be so insanely skilled they'd make Shaolin Monks look like clumsy novices)
Hmm, it would be nice if Beastmasters could have a larger range of monsters to control. Genestealers would be welcome! Other monsters too.
