In the vast, intricate universe of Warhammer 40K, each faction brings its distinct flair and gameplay to the table. As you’re getting started with Warhammer 40K, one particular set that may have piqued your interest is the formidable Drukhari Combat Patrol. This starter set has gained acclaim for its well-balanced contents and dynamic strategies it opens up for new and seasoned players alike.

As part of our new series reviewing Combat Patrol boxes, we’ll delve deep into what makes this set tick, how the army plays, and where to go from here. Let’s dive right in.

What’s in the Drukhari Combat Patrol Box?

This Warhammer 40K starter set is a comprehensive package. It includes an Archon, 10 Kabalites, 5 Incubi, a Raider, and a Ravager. It’s an excellent start for a Drukhari army or a valuable addition for those looking to bolster their existing forces.

How does the Drukhari Army Play?

The Drukhari are essentially a glass cannon army, known for their speed, precise and devastating combat abilities. While the Covens provide tanky elements, the true strength of this army lies within the Kabal, the backbone of your force. A strategic balance between the Covens, Cult, and Kabal offers rewards, though if raw power is your game, the Kabal is the way to go.

What’s Good and Bad about this Box?

The Drukhari Combat Patrol box offers a robust start to your Drukhari force. The units work well together, with the Archon leading the Kabalites from the Raider, and the Ravager providing dedicated anti-Tank firepower. The Incubi, though needing Drazhar to maximize their potential, still have a place in the force by causing Battleshock and generating valuable pain tokens.

There’s very little to criticize about this box. However, if one was to make a change, swapping the Incubi for some Scourges could make for a more balanced army.

Where to go from here?

Expanding your Drukhari army post this box set could involve adding Scourges for additional anti-tank capabilities. Scourges offer excellent mission play and are a powerful enhancement for any Drukhari force. A Talos or Cronos can serve as heavy hitters or pain token recycling units, depending on your preference. Finally, stocking up on more Kabalites and Transports is always a good call. Another Combat Patrol box might be just what you need to fortify your forces.

In conclusion, the Drukhari Combat Patrol box earns a solid 7/7 for its well-rounded unit selection and the strategic depth it offers. Though the Drukhari may not be the most durable, they more than make up for it with their speed and ferocity, making them a fun and engaging faction to master. For the Dark City, for Commoragh!
