I still believe that assault CAN play a major role in a DE list. Reavers, taloi, incubi, grots and even an all beastmaster squad - all decent enough units.
Sure, they are all decent enough, and if you run them as about 50% of your army and have solid success with it against armies built by others with the intent to win the game I will agree that perhaps 7th is not as shooting focused as I believe it to be.

There is a difference between running 1-2 assault units and running an assault army. Assault armies are not as competitive right now, because the game currently favors shooting.

As for the warlord traits - if you go with succubus or beefed up archon you now have a lot more decent traits. 'm going to assume you will discuss WWPs later ... And it is tactical traits you were looking for. There is very little reason not to choose this in maelstrom.
I agree with both of these.

I noticed that you never mentioned something that was brought up on my thread - if you take the realspace raiders you cannot take a fortification. This might not be a big deal but I like fortifications because I null deploy a bit .. less now with maelstrom but ...
You still could, it just depends on how many points you have available and your goals. I'll admit I didn't think to mention it because I never field fortifications. A fortifications for DE discussion might be a good idea for a show though...

Well we have had the assault vs shooting debate already and yes, 7ed is oriented towards a mobile shooting list. But you can break the mold with caution.

don't know about Thor, but I didn't bring it up because I think Dark Eldar players that use fortifications should turn in their Dark Eldar Card

Just lol. You know Sean always used fortifications and I'm pretty sure he is keeping his membership card.


All said you guys are doing a great job. I cannot wait for the next installment. Amnd I'm not about to argue with you Thor -- I always lose those arguments. So we will just discuss instead.

Part of the shame of Blade Dancer is the fact Lelith gets it which is almost a waste. At 9 she's hitting on 3s against just about everything in the game. How many WS9 units are there in the game that you'd be willing challenge against? The only thing that comes to mind is a Daemon Prince, something that I'd probably not send Lelith against, especially since I'm surrounded by splinter weapons.

So I do see this as a bit of a wasted opportunity with a warlord trait.

Curiously, unless I'm missing something, Drazhar doesn't come with a Warlord trait? If this is true the personal traits options seems REALLY good for him. Counter-Attack, Furious Charge, +1VP for each enemy character slain in challenge, FNP, IWND. Lots of good options. Expecting that to be FAQed though.
