Lilith and Hekatrixes
« on: March 23, 2014, 04:00:09 PM »
Hello all, I like the idea of putting Hekatrix Bloodbrides on a Venom with Litlith and was just wondering what is the preferred wargear/equipment for the bloodbrides for a take all comers army list.

Here are the models that I own so far....


Raiders x3

Warriors x30

Wyches x40

Reavers x6

Scourges x10

Venom x1

Common wisdom is that Bloodbrides aren't really worth it over just regular old Wyches. They're too expensive and just not durable enough. Accordingly, I've never seen them fielded nor heard of good strategies for them that aren't the exact same as Wych strategies (charge and tarpit tough guys and/or cut up light infantry).

Honestly, I'd recommend just taking more of the regular Wyches. The special weapons Bloodbrides have access to and the bonus stat aren't really worth it.

Agreed. You simply don't get enough extra bang for the extra buck over regular wyches, especially in a 5 girl squad dropping out of a Venom.
You really have to see this squad as an ablative delivery system for Lilith. Keep 'em cheap and let Lilith do her thing.
Maybe get them a shardnet, because fewer attacks coming in is always useful. Maybe upgrade one to a hekatrix for challenges.

I kind of like bloodbrides, but  yeah I only take them if I have already filled up all 6 troop slots and still want more wyches.
The extra attack actually  helps alot but other then that....  not much different.
