Thoughts on the Menite Archon

Recent Release icon.jpg

Recent Release
This model/theme has only recently been released, and the content in the "Thoughts On" section is based more on theory-machine than actual gameplay experience.

Feel free to remove this warning if you, personally, have a good level of gameplay experience with the model, have reviewed this article, and either you A) agree with the content 100% or B) for the parts you disagree with, you don't strongly disagree; and it's more a case of differing opinions between you and previous editors rather than incorrect content / bad advice.

Menite Archon in a nutshell

The Menite Archon is the more offensive of the Archons, a straight up beater who wants to fly into things and punish them. The Menite Archon forsakes a shield for an additional melee weapon, and it's package should synergize with the general strengths of Menoth, ie: lighting things on fire. The Menite Archon should want to get into the thick of things and threaten a variety of models, while also being fairly difficult for your opponent to remove, which is helped by it's superior boxes, Ashen Veil.
