Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was reading through my five codexes and stumbled into the wargear section of the dark eldar. Suddeen;y I realized that an archon can have ws7, st6, always strike first, 6? attacks on the charge and a 2+ inv save!!! :eek: Is that true?
All these perks are offset by her toughness of 3, meaning that the first hit that penetrates your 2+ save has good chances of killing you outright
Also, the save goes away when it's pierced the first time, leaving you with your 5+ save.
Aside from that, yeah, archon is a pretty sick puppy
The strength boost is not enen needed, since an agoniser always wound on a 4+, no matter your targets toughness. Sometimes S6 is more powerful, but when you can have an agoniser, its not worth the risk of a drug overdose. hell, 3 wounds on the average that ignores armor and toughness is just fine. Thats one WL/round.
Don't make the initiate's error of overdosing and overarming your Archon. Think: concise, powerful, deadly.
These are what make DE shine. We are not Chaos, after all. Our Archons only need the usual Agoniser, Shadowfield, Drugs, and Pistol to survive and wreck carnage. Trust me, that little combo is more than a match for even the deadliest Hive Tyrants or Daemon Princes.
"And whoever wants to be a creator in good and evil, must first be an annihilator and break values. Thus the highest evil belongs to the greatest goodness: but this is--being creative."

Well DE are an insane CC army, riviling the harlquens. THey have two of the best (if not the best) CC units in the game. Wynches, and the lord with incubi.
It suks when they slam into your 10 man GK termi squad w/ GM and tear it to sherds in two turns :p
On the other hand its funny to watch the lord die from drug overdose :lol:
