    I just decided to begin collecting/modifying a harlequin army, so i whipped up a 1000 point list to see what people think.

    Shadowseer 156
    Plasma pistol
    Power blades
    CC weapon
    Dread mask
    D-field

    Solitaire 176
    Plasma pistol
    Power blades
    Dread mask
    D-field
    CC Weapon

    3x Death jesters 171
    3x Bright lances

    10x Harlequins 312
    2x Plasma pistols
    2x Harlequins kiss
    1x Troupe leader
    1x Plasma pistol
    1x Power blades

    7x Harlequins 185
    2x Plasma pistols

    Total: 1000

    I figure ill lump the shadowseer in with the smaller group of harlequins, his psychic stuff should help keep them alive. I was also considering dropping a few harlequins and getting a venom for my shadowseer and his pals to ride in.

    let me know what you think.

    Thanks
    Saethiel

    don&#39;t know much about harlequins, but the list looks solid

    The trick with Solitaires is to give them two Kisses and send them into small squads, or squads of Guardsmen. Since they have low toughness and have no save in CC, the best thing is for them to wipre out an entire enemy squad in one round of combat.
    Henceforth no man shall set foot upon the world, and all around shall be set sentinals to ward away unwary spacecraft. We must accept that this place is lost to us forever, and is now the eternal habitation of abomination.

    I will mostly be playng against space marines and chaos space marines, so the powerblades are proabably a better choice.


    I am also thinking about giving the solitaire and shadowseer a shuriken pistol with bio explosive ammo instead of a CC weapon. for those instances where ive got something with multiple wounds or a amasses group of critters with no armor save.

    personally i think a venom is a wraithbone death-trap. 10 armour all around and no armour saves if its destroyed

    Why would you ever give a guy two kisses? A kiss and a power weapon work out quite well. Maybe a kiss, a close combat weapon, powerblades, and rush at orks/tyranids/whathaveyou.

    Also with harlequins, the Solitaire is the most broken thing on that list, so it probably should be included, at least from a numbers standpoint, but there are easy ways to kill it (i.e. Imp Guard players who guess basilisks on top of the solitaire until you fail a cover save). I don&#39;t play harlequins, but two guys I know do, and they seem to have more success in 1000 points with a Great Harlequin, 3 Death Jesters with some weird eldar anti-tank weapon, and two full squads of harlequins. Part of the problem with armies like Tau is that they are used to fighting armies with high saves and they know that they will lose and lose badly in hand to hand combat, so the important thing is getting some guys to the squad. Even one harlequin with a power weapon that reaches a crisis team will beat the crap out of it over a few turns, but you have to make sure you get there.
