Death Masque – Harlequin Formation and Units

Looking over the Harlequin Formation and Units from the Death Masque box set. I wish they had a rule to make Eldrad an HQ for Harlequin and allow them to take a CAD.

    The void weaver is bs5 so at least it’s a bit better shooting however still dies easily I wish the formation 6++++ sv worked on it.
    Saying that the 6++++ sv is awesome as it stacks with fnp and the basic Harley invul and it works on everything including stompa and str d wounds.
    Eldrad is much better in this formation because he no longer dies to str 6 and has an additional 6++++ sv furthermore eldrad has a great warlord trait for this unit by allowing d3 units to scout.
    Finally while people complain the troupes setup are not ideal they are all reduced cost from a standard troupe loadout with the same weapons saving you 11 or 15 points each which basically Nagates that extra weapon you don’t prefer. The void weaver is the only unit I don’t like but the entire formation is sub 1000pts and will only be a part of someone’s entire list.

    Dusk’s squad could fit as a first turn disruption unit if you take in into a standard masque detachment. If it’s in a starweaver (as a fast attack slot) it has a decent chance of a fist turn charge to tie up a key unit of the opponents. Could work well if supported by nearby spirit seers.
