Hi all,

I recently purchased a Dark Eldar Battleforce as a jumpstart for an army. I purchased one of the old kits that came with 20x Kabalites 5x Reavers and a Raider.

I am curious as to what HQ you guys would recommend as a new player starting out with this model selection.

You could probably easily custom make an Archon. Give him a Blaster or something (it may only come with two in the kit? But you could probably costume make one from the Dark Lance or the Heat Lance).

With just this selection so far, I would actually go for a Haemonculus.
You've got a good grounding, but nothing really combaty, so thats a Succusbus out.
And I personally feel that an Archon running with Warriors is a bit wasted, so better to bring in a Haemonculus to give buffs to one of your Warrior squads.
I would put ten of those warriors in a Raider with Splinter Racks, and a Haemonculus with the other ten to them more survivability until you add more to the army.

I was thinking more on the lines of what you could make with those models, but I think Squidmaster has a good point. A Hemmy may be the best hero for the current force you have. He's a pretty decent support guy.

Bit late to the party, but you could also give the Haemy a Webway portal to get those warriors where you need 'em.

The old starter set had only Splinter Cannons and Rifles so the kitbash options are limited I'm afraid. for the HQ noone really goes well with just the warriors but Haemy can boost their FNP so I'll go with that.
