Kabal of the Poisoned Tongue - 2000 PTS
« on: January 28, 2021, 05:01:53 PM »
Wooo, it's been a while since anyone has been in here haha. Well, I know we still have some resident Drukhari players around - so I thought I'd share a list I created today. I know the new codex is about to come out for our True Kin - but since the FAQ, we got our points adjustments early. So I thought I'd draft a rough mono-kabal list.

Tell me what you guys think!

Basically, the Kabal of the Poisoned Tongue I think is a better Kabal than most people might think. Their strategem to redeploy before the first turn after the original deployments are made are huge! Basically castle on one side of the board, let your opponent deploy to deal with it, then redeploy on their other flank and give them a good application of overwhelming firepower with an added dose of lethal precision. I'll likely have to make changes post codex - but with the buff to Incubi and Drazhar already being a beast, they can definitely pick off tough targets that frighten my Kabalites.

This will be my first actual 40k army that I'm committing too, so I'm excited and if you guys have any advice - then let me know!

The list looks really nice. My only question is why only 1 special weapon in the kabalite squads? I do like the composition and may barrow that list or a variation there of. Not sure about the kabal you selected, I'll do a little research on that and see if it will work for me, my main opponent is admech, have to decide if that would help me with redeployment.  8)

Thanks, Dread!

As for the special weapons - I was under the impression that you could only take one special weapon per squad. Guess I should read the datasheet again haha :P.

Yeah, I think The Kabal of the Poisoned Tongue is one of those hidden gems, but, with the new codex coming out it's position in the hierarchy of kabals may change - though I'm hoping for the better!
