Welcome to Librarium Online!
I just wanted to know what can we, as Dark Eldar players use to counter a Drop Pod heavy Space Wolves list?
I'm pretty sure he had Logan Grimnar, 8 drop pods, 3 with Dreadnoughts, 1 with Longfangs & the other 4 with Wolf Guard... Oh & Arjac with a squad of Wolf Guard Terminators he had more but that's what i can remember hope that helps.
All helpful advice is well appreciated thanx.
Once the turn 1 pods have landed, he's very slow - so weather the initial shock and then GTFO. Once you're out of his range you can fight him on your own terms. The rest of his army will be coming down in dribs and drabs.
well deploy second if you can and go second. and keep all your stuff in reserve, and he will be forces to spread out when he comes in. then just overwhelm him on one flank and keep your distance from the other stuff.
So big things to remember
1st Kill Kill Kill Special Chars (Ragnar, Rune Priests, Arjac, Logan) etc
2nd Kill Long fangs
3rd Move around and shoot while he tries to play catch up to you the entire game. Avoid CC unless you are sure you can kill him without receiving a countercharge.
I'm with archon Nigelboyette on this one - don't play the spacewolf game. Show up late and play yours. I find my reaver jetbikes are particularly entertaining against SW commanders who plop their clunky pods down too far forward (for which read "anywhere on the board outside the deployment zone you should have taken in the first place, mon-keigh").
Thanx for the advice guys.
