Welcome to Librarium Online!
just been wondering, now the new DE 'dex is out, how do we kill them?
With S6 shots. no FNP = dead DE
hahahah niraco, So many times you've mentioned S6 shots.. haha it's funny to see
Seriously, in every post you make, you mention them
because mass s6 shooting is one of out strongest lists at the moment.
Indeed, massed S6 shooting will be one of our main assets. That and using an Autarch to play the reserves game if we don't get turn 1.
I think the new DE codex doesn't require much adaptation on our part. Not like the other 5th edition codexes released so far. Try your standard tournament lists against them a couple of times and see how you fair.
The enemy's gate is down
Long range shooting if the winner against them. Their transports are incredibly fragile still, once out if them they're t3 with poor saves. Where they are enormously dangerous is in the assault.. if it's not a banshee it's going to die before it gets a chance to hit.
A warwalker squad with all EMLs. It always does amazing for me. 6 plasma blasts at 48" will wipe DE, and if need be you can use the crack missiles on tanks.
I would say scatter lasers but the EML 48" range allows you stay out of range of all DE weapons and due to the BS3 a scatter is much better even misses have a good chance of hitting something. Also having the scouting rule bring them in from a side board edge always surprises all my opponents if you go that route. They die fast, but they have always done great for me against every army. Although I still am yet to face IG believe it or not, and they probably will suck against them.
Anyways they will work DE over hard if you play them right... I hate dark reapers, but if you know your fighting DE they will work them as well...take down their tanks at 48" like the warwalkers.
