For a bit of fun, I thought I'd have a go at using a more 'traditional' DE list, with a ton of Kabalites in transports.

Poison Tongue Battalion (+5CP)
Archon (Huskblade, Splinter Pistol, Soul Seeker) - 76 (Warlord: Soul Thirst)
Archon (Huskblade, Splinter Pistol) – 76
3 Lhamaeans – 45
10 Kabalite Warriors (2x Blaster) – 94
10 Kabalite Warriors (2x Blaster) – 94
10 Kabalite Warriors (2x Blaster) – 94
5 Kabalite Warriors (Blaster) – 47
5 Kabalite Warriors (Blaster) – 47
5 Kabalite Warriors (Shredder) – 38
5 Scourges (4x Haywire Blaster) – 92
5 Scourges (4x Haywire Blaster) – 92
5 Mandrakes - 80
Ravager (3x Disintegrator) – 125
Raider (Disintegrator) – 80
Raider (Disintegrator) – 80
Raider (Disintegrator) – 80
Venom (Twin Splinter Rifle) – 65
Venom (Twin Splinter Rifle) – 65
Venom (Twin Splinter Rifle) – 65
Venom (Twin Splinter Rifle) – 65

1500pts (8CPs)

Obviously the 10-man Warrior squads go in the Raiders, whilst the 5-man squads take the Venoms. The secondary Archon and 3 Lhamaeans will also take a Venom. The Warlord-Archon might start in the same Venom for a little extra movement, but otherwise he'll spend most of the game footslogging and sniping with his pistol. The Scourges and Mandrakes will deep strike (assuming my opponent is using vehicles, if not then the Scourges will start on the board). The secondary Archon will take the Djin Blade unless I need psychic defence (in which case he'll take the Helm of Spite instead), and will go with the Lhamaeans to try and take out a tough, non-vehicle target.

Any thoughts?

What are the lhamaeans for? Why not giving a splinter cannon to a couple of 10 man squads of kabalites and splinter racks to their raiders instead?

Basically, I thought they'd be a good unit to accompany the secondary Archon in his Venom. Against non-vehicles they inflict Mortal Wounds on a 4+, and with Poison Tongue they'll be rerolling 1s to wound. I thought they could be good for throwing at an elite unit or monster, along with the Archon.


Do you think that they're not worth using?

Well, I would definitely take a 2nd Ravager.
An Archon with retinue is questionable.

2nd Ravager might indeed be a good idea.

I'd love to be able to take a less godawful HQ, instead of one (or both) of the Archons, but I fear GW has left me without that option.

Still, if I dropped the Lhamaeans, would you still bother with a Venom for the Archon(s), or should I just footslog the pair of them?

Well, I'd let the Archon footslog for buffing purposes.
If she's mounted, then she cannot.

Well, I wouldn't take larger squads due to morale issues.
I'd prefer the 2nd list, flyer instead of Mandrakes.

I prefer 5-man squads, but I wanted to use more than 30 Warriors and I really didn't want to have to include a third Archon (or, God help me, Drazhar ).

Okay, cheers.
