Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm starting to play DE and I've been reading the DE forums and army lists and for some reason, many people are using dracons over archons... Why is this?
But then, you get +1 WS and 1+ BS... The 6 WS would make enemy units (even HQ) harder to hit you.

Actually, WS5 vs. WS6 in CC.. the WS5 hits on a 4+, just like vs. another WS5. So it's the same to-hit, in most situations.Originally Posted by Chunkz
The BS does nothing, as both values hit on the same roll (the best you can get).
It's not that big of a benefit.
The main diffrence betwee the two lords is the A and W values. Archons can simply attack more, and they can use more drugs safely than dracons.. that makes a huge diffrence in their killing capacity.
I always choose an archon (or if I use my cult army, my archite) for my first HQ. Dracons should never be used IMO, as a drachite will outperformand outlast him every day of the week with her 4+ inv save. Keep in mind that you only have one shadow field, the arcon needs that.
I'd say it depends on the situation. If its with incubi, use a dracon, if its with wyches, it doesn't matter, with warriors, it doesn't matter, on their own, definately an archon, with grotesques, an archon is preferable but either will do.
