I'v always collected the least popular army cos i wanted to be different; so, for my 4th 40k army after Tau, Guard and Tyranids, I'v landed on Dark Eldar.
Could any of you Archons tell me any Dark Eldar tactics, the way Dark Eldar suppress their opponents and why so few people collect them?
Dark Eldar are one of the least played armies because on the first glance at their army list they seem to be weak, and those 20 warriors from the starter box whoare chanceless against the ten marines don't change this impression. However, once you learned how to use them you can obliterate your enemies, and leave them shocked and wondering how they could get crushed by a virtually inferior army.
There are lots of maneuvres which DE can utilize, i can't summarize them all here and know. Just keep in mind two things: "Speed is your armour", and "warriors and their raiders are disposable". Telling you specific tactics is very hard, as i don't know anything about your army and your opponent's. If you post an army list, then we can optimize as a start.
Yay, its great to have another dark eldar player. Im the only one at my local store. Im make this brief.
Dark Elda probably one of the fastest, if not the fastest, army in 40k. They have a specific use, each unit is designed be good at only one thing. I have not found them that flexable, but thats cus they are said to be one of the hardest armies to play (thinking persons army i guess).
Here are some tactics.
Its good to run your archon and wyches on a raider to your opponent and kill em in close combat. Put your raider squads w/ warriors to block los to the archon and wych raiders. Basically your archon and wyche do all the infantry killing along with the ravagers with disintegrators and the jetbikes and infantry w/ lances kill tanks.
well i found out, the webway portal is good if you got the talos, but if you dont got one then dont use the webway portal!!! or it has to be done something to!!! to slow for the dark eldar army. But hey one army that could be evil is combine dark eldar jetbikes with harlequins and sauÃ*m-hann wild riders!!! now that could be the evilest fast army i could imagine!!! or just make a dark eldar sect where heavy is troops or fast is troops. would make the dark eldar even more deadly!!! just a thought. But hey against necrons Move behind cover and take out the infantry!!! forget about necrons and thoes pesky parrias (or what ever they are called) take out the infantry!!!
