Wych

A Wych squad.
Who shall taste my trident?


The Wych is a specialised Dark Eldar unit that excels in both close and ranged combat. Though their range damage is lower than that of the Warrior squad, they are still very powerful, and are a great asset to any Dark Eldar army.

Wyches are an all-female type of unit, and may be considered a separate race - this isn't the case, however. Like all Dark Eldar, Wyches inhabit the cruel planet of Commorragh.

[edit] Dawn of War

Wyches are requisitioned from the Hall of Blood barracks. When reinforced, they can reach a maximum squad number of 7 (1 more unit than their Warrior Squad counterparts). A Haemonculus' Laboratory is required to add a leader to the Wych Squad; the leader in this case is the Wych Succubus. The Wych Squad possesses the ability Combat Drugs, which grants all allied units on the field temporary morale damage immunity. Using this ability is particularly useful when using a Warp Beast Pack if they're short on morale.

A Wych Squad requires a Wych Cult Arena to be requisitioned.
