Welcome to Librarium Online!
I wanted to kno what some people stratigies are to playing a Kabal army. I have trouble with my radiers getting to where they need to go then getting blown up and killing half my squad. Another question I have is tht if anyone knows why Ravengers are open topped you can't put troops in them can you?
that is quite a pickle now that we cant hide or screen them.
the solution many DE plays have taken is not to max out on the squads within or the new trend to go with WWP-army(warp portal army).
the basics of the latter is to take maybe 3 raider squads to "protect" the rest and have 2 minimum portal carriers so one will make it through.
the ravager does not fuction as a transport. It embodies most of the dark eldar army, fragile and extremely offenceive.
the dissie ravager can finish off marines squads one at each turn with ease.
the dark lance ravager can pop a land raider without breaking a sweat.
so basicly the key is to never put all your eggs in one basket but to spread it out through entire army, literally never giving an obvious target.
Always pick your army so you can loose a numbers of squads and still be there to finish him off.
its a touch thing to do but you will get there i am sure.
good luck dancey!

-Are you playing with a full 25% terrain on the table?
-If you have lots of raiders that might be a problem no matter how much terrain.
-Never tell your opponent what raiders carry what troops, this won't help any single raider to survive longer but it will make it harder for him to take out your important raiders first.
-Keeping your CC squad Raiders in a WWP and deploying the portal within 18" of where you need the Raider to be will help. It moves out from the portal 12", disembark 2" and either shoot and assault or fleet and assault.
