I have decided to get back into Dark Eldar and I am fairly excited about it. I have a 1000 point army already but (considering they were my first army) the list is crappy. I haven't won a lot of games with them. But now since I am older and more wiser I think I will have better luck with constructing an effective army list and I will do a better job at strategy on the field.
Now heres what bothers me. There are the rumors that we might be getting an update around 2009-2010. I really want to buy some more models to change up my list but I don't want to waste my money. I know that I am positively going to get the new models when they come out. What would you guys do?
For me, I would make a list of what I feel I need to be able to play soon. If you're happy playing 1000 pt games for the time being, then you can hold off a bit. But I find enthusiasm needs to be fed, with some aspect of the hobby. Whether playing, constructing lists, or yes, buying and painting new models, nothing keeps the fun going like actually participating in some way. So, why not make a list of what you'd want for a 1750-2000 pt army, pretend it's a tournament and you can only bring one army. Then, buy those models unit by unit. Does that make sense? I hope it helps, it's great that you are getting into 40K Dark Eldar again!
I would buy up some second hand bargains and then get the newer ones to add to what you already have.
I don't know about you but I treasure my 'vintage' dark Eldar as much as looking forward to having the newer recruits in my army.
Ever seen an older army of 'Beaky' marines or Harlequins? They look just as good as the new ones if you give them some lovin' with a paint brush.
(Mind you 'some' players hate Wyches with a passion though as they kinda do look like transvestites with daggers.)
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
