As a old Orky Vet, i decided to go imperium for a bit and made a small Guard Reg (1000 points atm). I wanted to make another Xeno army and with my brother playing the eldar and to be honest, having the intrest in Nids or Tau, i think i'm gonna go with the Dark Eldar.
They have a awsome fluff backround and seem to be a pretty strong adversary, and a final reason being that we don't got a regular DE player down at my gaming area. Best we got is a guy who comes in like once a month and half the time i miss it when hes there. I think i've played him a total of 3 times and last time was... um.. well i can't remember.
Not played enough against you Dark lot 'nuff i wanted to ask you guys what kind of regular tactics and army builds do you guys usually use? and whats a good force to look like if i wanted to start off around 500-750 points worth.
And welcome to the Dark Side.
Perhaps it’s best to start looking through the DE Army lists to see what is approved of and take it from there but its obvious that you will need an HQ and 2 troop choices and with 5th Ed looming its best to make these troop choices big in number.
( Come back after perusing for a while with a list of your own and I am sure that it will attract the right criticism.)
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
A general Dark Eldar list involves an archon, 1 or 2 sniper warrior squads (10 men w/2 Dark lances), a squad or 2 of wyches and maybe a talos or a ravager or 2...but there are other ways to play! A Kabal! (all warriors) A wych cult (all wyches!) or even a coven (Haemonculi/Grotesques/Talos!)....do a bit of reading here and in your book and think about your play style, the DE have a bit for everyone!
the current battle box has 20 warriors a raider and 5 bikes.
with this i was able to make a decent (semi competitive) 500 point list. all you need to do is get an archon or dracon.
Bikes are not used in all lists but i find they can be very good at times (and they are getting a boost in 5th)
