Well now i was thinking of starting Dark Eldar this summer or possibly sooner, they just appeal to me. I wanted to do a Webway army, it is possibly to do a good one at 1k? some 2 squads of 20 warriors carrying portals with Splinter Cannons, 2 Talos? Anyone have any suggestions?
I remember trying to ambush my opponent a few times with webway portals and it can be very tricky.
The model using it has to be completely still in the turn it does so any fast moving enemy will be all over you.
I found the only safe place to use them was in my deployment zone or miles away from my opponents models. Needless to say that somewhat defeats the point of buying expensive portals as to get the Talos in close if all it means is they deepstrike late in the game in my own deployment zone well away from where I need them.
The point is if you wish to use webway portals you have to be sneaky if you pull it off you could wreak havoc but if you appear to close to an assault oriented enemy such as a Tyranid swarm, well all I can say is DOOM.
