Why are wychs said to be so good??? at s/t 3 , armor save of 6... why are they so good?
What makes a DE army so good?? all their units look so weak and not very advantageous over other armies
thanks for any help=)
DE depend a lot on the terrain on the table.
If there is enough for them, then they are able to concentrate their punch on a single isolated unit, leaving nothing alive that can strike/shoot back. This way they pretty much negate their obvious weakness, fragility, and maximize the benefit from their strengths, which is speed and punch.
Vanilla Wyches aren't worth much, you need to pay the points for Wych Weapons before they become useful. The Succubus with Agonizer+Pistol is what will do most of your killing. The Special rules of the Wych Weapons are what make the Wytches last so long in CC (against all comers), which in turn allows the Succubus enough time to finish off the enemy squad, or big bad.
What makes the DE army so 'good' or Evil as the case may be is that they are so flexible. We probably have the least number of unit choices outside of SoB but you can tool up for either shooty or assault or a nice mix of both and still be effective. Plus you almost always have tons of mobility. We're also one of the only armies that can assault out of a transport in the same turn.
And winning with with a DE army gets you good street credit, since most people think:?? all their units look so weak and not very advantageous over other armies
War Record Since Sept 2005
Old Codex 48-20-9 Dark Eldar
New Codex 1-0-0 Dark Eldar
wyches rule they are my favorite close combat unit in the game though they are very vunrible to shooting with a 6+ save when you get into combat 4+ invon
neaver leave home without combat drugs and alway give a raider do not ever let them slug it out through the board
one more get scubas with agonzier then you can take down any thing
my 7 wyches brought down a carnifex WOOT WOOT
wyches efective agansit orks,eldar any thing that carries a ccw
weak= tyrindes becauses they can't use thier wych wepons
Wyches half weapons skill attacks against them. simple. a tau in close combat(im kinda emphasizing I know) has 1 ws in trying to hit the wych! Also, the 4 + invul makes them perfectly anti elite. This is of course, saying they got into hth
"There is no middle ground. Strike Hard, strike fast and strike first."
there are many more threads down the line where Arhon Astartoth has done some amazing math equation on how wyches will beat down any opponnent.
The Dark Eldar are so nice because you can combine the best cc squads in the game with some decent shooting (warriors, ravager)
they are the hardest army to use though
ya they are a hard race to use but they kick ass once u learn how to use it ha i'm 15 and i'm wasting 56 year old harden ventrens. LOL
it's good because we are the least played race of them all and knows how to beat us and thier armys are made to kill the usless SM
just rember we are a fraction that kicks ass and takes slaves
