Just thinking, Right now the Scourge REALLY suck. I've never got them to work at all, and I know the in the Fluff they're extremely sinister.
So I figure that GW just though, "Hey, they're good in the fluff, so we'll make them cost alot of points".
Basically I want to use them, but not at the costs of losing a the game. I don't want this discussion getting into what will change with the new codex but only to focus on how or if the Scourge will change.
Basically I think an easy way and effective way to change them is just have the the SC's cost 10 points each. And either give them expensive disintegrators, or expensive Dark Lances they they can move and shoot. Like terminators shoot with their ML's.
they are actualy cheep because look at other jump infrentry are about 20 pts and dont have many heavy weapons but 14 points would be nice
dark eldar look so cool and resonably pointed

but they shoud be able to have blasters and shreders
I think we should have a fast attack option capable of taking blasters (but less of them) and hit and run style rules. Maybe an elite version capable of taking some CC options. It would definitely help shake up our lists. Right now i don't think i know any players who take anything other than wyches and reavers for elites and fast attack ... and frankly i don't blame them.
Scourges are a little overcosted, i don't think reducing them in cost is going to be the solution though. Snipe squads are incredibly cost effective for their points, and in order to make scourges appealing to most players with their current rules we would have to their points comparable to 2 sniper squads at which point scourges would be seriously undercosted.
What i think would help would be some useful additions to their rules, like move and fire DL's, a jink save or something along those lines. The reason people don't like scourges is because you can get warriors which are almost as effective, but you can have 4 times as many models for slightly more points. What needs to be looked at is making scourges more effective for their points cost. They should after all standout as being more effective than our basic troops, but don't get me wrong i love our troops.

Humm, looks to me like this is a made up little "I want" thread
