Hey i have done a 1500 point army list for a ork horde..(no trukks in here...) and have been wondering if this list needs any tweeking in order to beat the unbeaten dark eldar player at my local GW ( with raiders..lots of raiders)
Warboss - 110
Twin linked shoota
9 burnas 1 mek - 135
9 lootas 1 mek - 135
10 nobs - 400
5 power klaws
2 kombi scorchas
3 big choppas
10 'eavy armour
Boys x 30 - 220
Boys x 30 - 220
'Ard boys x 24 - 280
All in All it totals to 1500 exact. Any ideas on improving my list are welcome
just to note i would take away the eavy armour on the nobz and give them a pianboy with cbork. This means you have an invun of 5+ and feel no pain. This should help you survive against high ap shots whilst not being to expensive and can still abosrb a lot of anti-infantry firepower. I would either give the burnaboyz a transport or dump them. Without a transport they will get gunned down and lose numbers before getting close enough. The looters are a in your list. The best way to take out dark eldar skimmers are looters. There str 7 shots cause a huge amount of damage against av10 (remember they are opentopped). I would drop the bruna boyz and instead take looters. This should destroy two skimmers a turn if you roll good and then chew up his infantry.
I would also consider big gunz. lobbas would do ok wounding your that elder on a 2+ allowing no armour save. 3 of these at 60 points in total is not a huge point chunk and will punish any elder out of cover.
Just a few words of advice to your list. Also beware of charging huge mobs of boyz at those skimmers. You can upgrade them to have spikes so if you charge 30 noys into them you will take 10 str 5 hits :s.
Nothing more funny than 3 inquisitors with sanctify when facing deamons. They cant do anything while you stand in front of them having a tee break.
Lootas are the bane of all Dark Eldar lists. I'd definitely recommend them.
Burnas and Nob Mobz don't work on foot. They get shot up and die very quickly. I'd only use either if you have a transport for them.
A big mek w/kff would be a big help to the list. An SAG and/or warp 'ead would also work well. I wouldn't use the warboss though. They're only really good in speed freaks lists.
If you have them, killa kans also work very well in horde lists, with kmbs.
It's curious that despite all the raiders in your opponent's list, you're bringing nothing that can destroy them. I'd consider using lootas, big gunz kannons, killa kans, rokkit buggies, and/or rokkits in the unitss of boyz to help bring them down. As it stands, you don't really have anything that can destroy them.
