Episode 7: Tournament Raids and You Part 1 of 2

We discuss the Warhammer 40k scene with Reece and Frankie from Frontline gaming. We debate the merits of the Corpsetheif formation, discuss the changes to the codex, cite some experiences, and all agree that Mandrakes are bad...except maybe for Reece.

In addition to talking about the upcoming Las Vegas Open, Reece weighs in on an old article that he wrote in the previous edition where he called Dark Eldar a spoiler army and how they have changed with the new codex, while Frankie shares insight and experiences from his current curbstomp special tournament list.

We recorded the interview before this was posted. I did send it to Reece, received a reply that they would look at it. Seemed surprised the BL actually answered this. I see them going with this ruling as it is not only RAW, but will probably get updated in a FAQ. We'll see. bounce

This is one of the best episodes yet, funny, good info, interesting and totally inspiring me to somehow dust off my 40 wyches and actually win a game with them, its going to be a long 2015!

It was interesting and fun but some points were rather obvious. Learning how to use maneuverability and speed are essential skills needed for a lot of armies - not just DE. I'm still not convinced ravagers are that good - I see better AT options for DE. I'm a bit surprised that Reece and Frankie find grots are not tournament worthy. MSU is still being advocated - I get it - lots of ObSec - but I think there are other viable tournament builds. All that said these guys are top notch players so who am I to critique there observations.

I stopped thinking like that ages ago Laughing Just go to any Tactics section on any 40k site and bear witness to dozens of rather basic questions being asked over and over again.

There's a reason my tactica is going to include 'unit builds that work' because people will still be having the question of caltrops or heat lances or both on Reavers four years from now.

I would be interested in hearing what you think is better at Ravager's job. The only things I can think of are maybe certain Eldar allies myself, but if we're talking within the codex and supplement I got nothing.

@egorey wrote:

Did they say that? I think I would have picked at that argument if they had - I don't recall it. I am pretty sure at one point that I noted Grots as functional and they agreed.

Hell, Reece was saying Mandrakes were okay - no way he dissed Grots Wink

I would say Frankie's suggested use of Corpsetheif qualifies as a non-MSU build, though he did go with MSU style support, but that's a deathstar build to my mind.

@egorey @Thor665 I believe egorey is talking about the recent dark eldar podcast on frontline gaming with skari, reecius and Franky. Where they say grots are not something they would take competitively.

Thanks for clarifying Mush, I was wondering what this was about as I haven't had a chance to listen to that episode yet. If anyone came on our show and claimed that Grots weren't worth taking......those are fightin' words Razz

I don't know what context they mentioned not taking Grots in a tournament list, but would be interested to hear why. If they are advocating using the Corpsethief Claw over Grots (not exactly crazy) I could see why as you wouldn't have the points for both if you wanted the army to be effective.

Wait, now I'm commenting on a different podcast in this podcast's thread.....and I haven't listened to it yet.....

Shutting up and drinking coffee now.
Don't post before 5:30AM.

Hello Thor and EvilSpaceElves,

I am new to this forum and returning to 40k after 14 years.  I played dark eldar back then and I am super excited to get started again with all the new changes.  These podcasts have been very helpful for me.  Especially this latest episode.  I don't plan on entering any serious tournaments any time soon, but I don't want to lose every game at my FLGS.  It was nice hearing some veteran tournament players discussing the new changes and really gave me a new perspective on how I want to build my force.  I have some warriors and raiders painted up so far.  I also have a ravager, scourge squad, wrack squad and a haemonculus in boxes.  I think I might shelf the wrack squad for now and purchase a Razorwing and some Reavers.

You guys are a great duo.  Two totally different perspectives but each are valuable and credible.  My only issue is sometimes the volume on Thor's audio spikes up really high at some points. The guests you've had so far have been really awesome. I'm a big fan of the BAO format and it was great to hear Reece's perspective on the scene as well as Frankie's input. I totally wrote off that corpsethief claw formation thinking it would be too many points to be practical but I will have to look it over again if he is doing well in tournaments with it.

Anyway, thanks a lot for making these podcasts.  I look forward to listening to the next one and posting some of my pictures and experiences on this forum in the future.

Hi guys, found out you had a podcast and tried getting it in my podcast app. Was able to eventually get the RSS feed from the libsync page but may make it easier for folks who manage podcasts through an app to link the RSS feed somewhere here or on the facebook page.

Downloading all the episodes now -- look forward to listening to them!
