The majority of players i play use nids, tau and IG. Hence i have basially no experience against DE. Id apprecite some help on this topic.
A webway portal is a piece of wargear the Dark Eldar use to make a portal from which their reserves may enter in the middle of the table, or wherever else they open it. There is no counter to this other than killing the model carrying it, and the only way to reliably do that is with an assassin.
However, there will almost always be more than one model carrying them, and so you should back off when they open it and shoot whatever comes through. Screening your squads with expendable scouts or vehicles can work too. Anything to keep those vicious close combat experts away from your men.
"Courage is not the absence of fear, it is the conquest of it." -Anon
Kill the model with the portal. If your opponent has 2-3, at least one will open most of the time. There is no way of destroying the portal once it is opened. Don't engage with Wyches in close combat, no matter what units you have (even Death Company or Terminators).
"And whoever wants to be a creator in good and evil, must first be an annihilator and break values. Thus the highest evil belongs to the greatest goodness: but this is--being creative."
~ Friedrich Nietzsche ~
Fortunatly the vast majority of Portalable units are fairly easy to kill with bolters, Wyches my be c.c Daemons but deploy 7" appart and one good rapid fire volley ought to send them packing.
Every time you read this sig: a fairie dies!
I was lucky once and put a mine field on it but that was just luck that i was playin that type of whirlwind. In general back away and point a dev squad at it and kill everything that comes out of it.
Can they charge out of the portal right after its opened?
I believe so yes because it counts as coming out of reserves and you can charge after coming onto the table edge.Originally Posted by DA_Force Commander

A webway portal is your DOOM!!! No just kidding. I face a DE guy all the time and he always uses webways to bring out his 2 Talos which really hurt. My suggestion is to just sit back out of charge range and just shoot him. Thats what I do and it usually goes pretty well. Since you can't block webway portals the best thing to do is to kill the unit that has it before it can be opened. Because then he has to deploy his reserves at the back of the fied and you can imagine how easy it is to pick off Incubi and Talos at 48' range :p

Alright, i think ive got the jist of it all. Thanks everybody!!!!
When in doubt, remember that DE armour happens to be made of duct tape and prayer.
Personally I'd count on him opening that WWP...Just make sure to have something nasty waiting for him (my preference would probably be quad heavy bolters)
