Myself as well.
My friends birthday is coming up and he is looking to start a DE army, what can I get him as a present that will be used almost universally in any type of list?
Also, what types of lists are DE capable of feilding and how do they work?
Examples, I play ork and tau so I will show you what I explained to my friend when he asked about what styles of armies I had available.
- Green tide: Overwhelm the opponent with numbers, a foot slogging army.
- Kan Wall : A variation of the green tide but with protection from a wall of walkers and often the addition of a kustom force feild. Still foot slogging.
- Mech Orks : Objective is to get into combat as fast as you can, pile boys into as many trucks and battle wagons as you can afford, usually assisted with kustom force feild
- Shooty: An unusual variation of orks, it is reliant on volume of shots rather than accuracy and can be made in 2 variations green tide type and mech type.
-Biker list: Usually focused on a very hard to kill unit of Nob bikers, it is an elite deathstar list with a high risk high reward style of play. Very fast and can be deadly.
-Speed freaks: A mix of mech/bike lists with nothing foot slogging and relies on getting into combat fast. Has trucks/buggies/bikes composing most of the force.
-The one list: Maximized heavy support, you can choose between 2 hammer heads and 1 broad side unit or 2 broadside units and 1 hammer head. Minimum 1 Firewarrior squad with a devilfish of their own or borrowed from a pathfinder. Kroot wall, 1-2 units of sacrificial kroot. As many suits as you can fit for the rest of your points.
Something to this effect would be awesome!
