    2000 Tournament

    I have a tournament coming up in a couple weeks (first one I've been to in about 5 years) and I want to represent the DE well. I've been playing a lot against my friends who use a bunch of different armies, and this is what I've come up with so far.

    Archon:
    Shadow Field
    Combat Drugs
    Animus Vitae
    Punisher/Tormentor Helm
    Hellion Sky board
    Plasma Grenades

    Haemonculi 1
    Scissor Hand
    Stinger
    Webway Portal

    Haemonculi 2
    Scissor Hand
    Destructor

    Grotesques x10

    Wyches x10
    Plasma Grenades, wych weapons
    Succubus: agonizer, splinter pistol, trophy rack
    Raider

    Wyches x10
    Plasma Grenades, wych weapons
    Succubus: agonizer, splinter pistol, trophy rack
    Raider

    Warriors x10, 2x Dark Lance

    Warriors x10, 2x Dark Lance

    Warriors x10, 2x Blaster, 2x Splinter Cannon
    Sybarite: agonizer, splinter pistol, plasma grenades

    Warriors x10, 2x Blaster, 2x Splinter Cannon
    Sybarite: agonizer, splinter pistol, plasma grenades

    Warriors x10, 2x Blaster, 2x Splinter Cannon
    Sybarite: agonizer, splinter pistol, Webway Portal

    Reavers x3: 2x Blaster

    Talos

    Ravager: 3x Disintegrators

    Ravager: 3x Disintegrators


    The basic plan is to set up two flanks, with the archon, whyches, and possibly bikes in the portal. On one flank are the haemoculi, gortesques, and talos, while on the other are the warrior squads. The sniper squads and ravagers provide covering fire wherever needed. The Haemonculous without the portal joins the grotesques while the one with the portal hides behind the grotesques and the talos. Both flanks move up until they have good portal placement (or the other one dies).

    Any suggestions to my list and/or tactics would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    scissorhand and stinger does not really work together, if you want to gear this WWP bearer, I would suggest to throw away the stinger and take up another lovely destructor

    good, though I think that DE already have good enough Ld, so they dont really need the trophy rack, but thats just me maybe.

    Do not really like the idea of putting ravagers in a WWP army, but I have seen it work. Keep them both or thrash them both, that is the question. EDIT: drop them because all the anti vehicle will be on them blowing away a nice 280 points

    In addition to what shadowelf said I was just wanted to say something about your archon.

    if you drop the animus vitae(which I've personally never found to be that useful) and swap the punisher for a power weapon you have enough points to upgrade the skyboard to a reaver jetbike. the jetbike gives you +1S to make up for losing the punisher, so you're baiscally trading a slim chance at an extra +1S(from the animus) for +1T and the ability to turbo boost (which can be invaluable when he needs to get somewhere fast to support a combat).
    The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. Bring them understanding of the power of ourselves through our strength and their fear. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all fragments will be smashed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be consumed

    Hmmm, interesting idea there with the bike. Im tempted to try it, except i would lose an attack for two close combat weapons.

    After playing a "tournament" against 4 of my friends, i did find the bikes to be completely useless. I have decided to replace them with warp beasts and to use the points left over to bolster the ranks of my warriors. Also, i found the ravagers to be invaluable, despite all the anti tank being directed at them. Thank you for the suggestions, and any more would be appreciated

    you still have the t-helm remember, so you still have that extra attack.
