Dark Eldar in 6th Edition
Continuing on from my first impressions of Tau in 6th edition , I thought I’d talk about another of my armies, Dark Eldar. From reading around on the internet there doesn’t seem to be single person who’s totally happy with 6th edition. It seems to me that every army got better in some ways and worse in others. Frankly this is just the way it is with any new edition. Let’s look at how it’s affected Dark Eldar. Hullpoints It’s pretty clear from my initial games and general consensus online that vehicles are much weaker in 6th edition. Ironically, I think this affects DE the least as their vehicles were already pretty flimsy. If anything it’s a bonus as vehicles are now far more likely to be wrecked than explode which has to be good for our mostly T3 units. What people are realising is that transports are just that. The days of sitting pretty in your rhino for turn after turn are gone.
