After many years of playing the DE, i thought it was about time to have a spring clean and actually organize my various dark eldar into something that actually resembles a legal army, which is well painted and doesn't have models with missing arms/bases/heads/ etc. So, i thought I may as well have something to aim for. This 2k list is designed to take on all comers, and rip 'em to shreds. Hopefully. I think it looks pretty solid, but what I think is normally wrong-o so help me out, lemme know what you think. Cheers:w00t:!
Agoniser, splinter pistol, reaver jetbike, shadow field, combat drugs
Agoniser, splinter pistol, combat drugs
5 WARRIORS (2 cannons)
10 WYCHES wych weapons, 1 shredder, succubus w/agoniser
10 WYCHES wych weapons, 2 blasters, succubus w/agoniser
BEASTMASTER & 5 WARP BEASTS
RAIDER SQUAD (8rifles, 1cannon, 1 blaster)
RAIDER SQUAD (8rifles, 1cannon, 1shredder)
WARRIOR SQUAD (8rifles, 2 dark lances)
WARRIOR SQUAD (8rifles, 2 dark lances)
6 REAVER JETBIKES (1shredder, 1blaster)
3 dark lances
There you are!
Incidentally, did anyone see the DE vs Tau [empire, as they're now for some reason called] battle report in the new WD? I was well happy to see DE in WD again, apart from that the guy who was playing with them was crap, but then they always rig it so that the new army they're promoting wins. Anyway, I'm glad to see that the DE aren't being completely forgotten about, even though they are being taken out of stores.
Anyway, reply to my army list please. Appreciated!
Raider squads can only have 1 heavy weapon and 1 support weapon (lance/blaster or sc/shredder) no 2 lances or cannons
I know, I haven't broken this rule!? the last two are warrior (not raider) squads (?)
how do you plan on deploying the Talos? It won't be able to catch up to the army and a smart player will leave it alone. Just doesn't seem to fit.
Dark Eldar: 1/1/1
1st game Dark Eldar Vrs. Blood Angels. Result = Draw
2nd game DE Vrs. BA Result = DE victory
3rd game DE Vrs. BA Result = DE loss
ya i would personaly drop the talos and either bulk up squads or get more heavy/special weapons for your squads or get some succubus
Actually maybe u should keep it, every time I play it draws fire like a wrathlord so I find it very useful or in this case absorby
WraithGuardian has a good point about it being a fire magnet.
Drop the agonizer on the reaver, get a power weapon and save 5 points. Either will hit T4s 4+ so why an agonizer? Take a strength drug you are now strength 5 hitting necrons and marines 3+, the agonizer will still be hitting on 4's. And if you are daring go ahead and give him animus vitae and you could have a strength 6th.
Personally, I would remove the talos and put in a reaver succubus. With an archon and succubus with power weapons you got 6 power weapon attacks at str 5 (with drugs) from the archon and 3 (4 if the reavers have the +1 attack drug) from the succubus. Ditch the shredder for a blaster so you can have 2 blaster shots before charging into necrons or marines.
Looking at the shredders in your list it looks like you got the models for them and dont have blasters do you? When you get the $$$ convert those shredders into blasters. Unless you are going against orks or IG or even some tau I wouldn't put shredders in - blasters are cheaper in every case and do more damage. Use them to pop transports or tanks or just cruise into some marines or necrons then assault. Try it out with the dice, as long as you get the charge you'll do some serious damage.
But leaving the talos in is fine too. The list looks good, happy hunting!!!
The talos is used what WraithGuardian said - basically my oppenents always overrate its ability and basically i would do anything from having my raiders shot down first turn, and as he sed, T7 Sv3+, it is very absorby! And yes KwiKwag (?lol) you are completely right about the power weapons, thanks.
Talos cant compare to wraithlord, you would get rid of it because it shoots, but talos doesnt
"98% of the teen population has smoked weed, if you are the 2% that hasn't, put this in your signature."
Remove the splinter rifle warriors from the retinue; you can't rapid fire then assault and for those points there could be another incubi or bike. Get a reaver succubus and replace the shredder with blaster.
Give the dark lance ravager 3 disintergrators instead, you have already 10 lances + blasters and disintergrators work better on ravagers because you can move 12" and still shoot them all, one on maximum too, and they aren't that bad at anti tank either.
