Hi, i currently play the white scars, but ive had them for quite a while now and was thinking of starting a dark eldar army.
however ive never played against them or seen anyone use them.
the army i want has to be quick and i dont have a clue if dark eldar are or not.
any advice would be great. (Y)
yes dark eldar are quick. I personally field an army all mounted on raiders. All fast skimmers. I think that counts as quick.
The only downside of collecting them is that shops arnt stocking them right now. So its up to you. I would say go for it. (Y)
I think you should try Dark Eldar. There are still places were you can get dark eldar.
Dark Eldar: The Kabal Of the Black Heart: Bloody Claw division.
Black Legion: Division 666
Vampire Counts Von Castein Bloodline: w/l/t
ive been playing dark eldar for a month. they are not bad they are challenging to use a first ther armour is pretty weak nealy all weapons can piece them flamer, bolters, pulse rifle ect. if u can use them well they can be really deadly a lord by it self can kill a nightbringer with 40 points of wargear agoniser and shadow field.
they have high inicative ( sorry if i spelt it wrong) im no really good with it
but i still use them

actually the tactics of DE is, to some extend, similar to White Scars. as White Scars rely on their speed, not their numbers (and maybe higher armour). the difference is DE has less armour, but moves much faster. at that speed you can concentrate your forces on a smaller percent of your opponents forces (my most usual tactic). DE's weapons are really fun to use (agoniser, dustructor)
and as you have mentioned, not many people play it, so there is your element of surprise...
Go for it, the Dark Eldar really are somewhat of an unheralded force in 40k. Once you get over the shock of lacking power armor and strength/toughness 4 you really won't be able to see why people dislike them though. Just remember armour isnt everything, you can't hurt what you can't hit.
