Succubus; Warlord, +2", +1 A
-helm of spite
Wyches x5; +1S
Wyches x5; +2LD
Wyches x5; +1WS
I have played wyches since 5e, all through 8e and, covid19 permitting, I'll bring them back. Here's your rethink:
+1S, +1Attack, +1Ws and then +2 inches to a succubus. She screens or assaults out of OverWatch, which used to be important, but not so much in 9e. +1 Toughness would go tot a 2nd succubus and, heh, LD
to a 3rd HQ
if that panned out.
The +1Attack on 5 girls means 5 more attacks, not 1 more on a Succubus. Each pack of girls ought to have a Shardnet and Impaler, including the Succubus. Since you only have 5 girls per unit, they're only there for tarpitting, so make it worth-while and have a 'Net. Full packs of 10+ girls could wipe out some units. When Primaris hit the meta, girls needed to be benched, not being able to deal out enough wounds.
Lately my dark eldar have been facing lots of vehicles and some long ranged anti tank. Where possible I need to keep the enemy away from me and with 24" blasters and 42" dissies and dark lance that should work out. Anyway hopefully this counters some of the frustration I've had with fast transports taking MEQ
armies all over and either needing to close with pitiful anti tank or just never being able to shoot at vehicles without going into super short range and losing units. I have few dissies and poison isn't great but I'm still hoping this list works.
If the meta shifts toward vehicles, with the SM
and Necron Codicies are just dropping, Dark Lances may well re-overtake DisCans as the better gun. As of now, I dunno.
The other option is to spend money on Scourges with haywire. I bought 3 boxes, painted all the long nosed guns blue ( shredder silver/gun metal). Not a single opponent, in many GTs
has fussed at me for all of them (well, 4 outta 5) being haywire, when the short nosed dude was the shredder. They used to be one of the cheapest Drukhari boxes, but it mighta gone up by now.
But, they're a reasonable answer to a vehicle heavy meta. And over all, a really good unit. 4+/6+, with Deep Strike, plus great range or simply mobile AF
. Since the tables got smaller, I dunno as I'd Deep Strike 'em at all.
