Episode 16
We are joined by listener Jack Gerlicher for our guide to playing Dark Eldar for beginners in Brian's first episode back from paternity leave....and the rust shows as he carves all the intros a new one. This episode also features an interview with listener Greg Lewis from the Overlords gaming group in London as we discuss the perils of overseas Revenant shipping. Enjoy!

Nice show guys. Very interesting.

I would like to say, a lot of your talk on Ravager vs. Scourge seemed to forget something. There seems to be a feeling that Scourge mean Haywire, but for the exact same points cost you can take Scourge with Heat Lances. Ok, you lose on range compared to the Ravager, but the Heat Lance I think has benefits. It can still take on vehicles, whilst also taking on Infantry.



Also:

First use, my Revenant D'ed a Stompa, causing it to explode and take out the entirety of my opponents army. First shot tabled my opponent.

Just something that got in my head while listening.
Anyway, you just made me feel bad for a Revenant Titan. I don't know how to deal with that. Overseas shipping is scary already.


And hey:
I have a great looking revenant with a good paint scheme, and it is great to be playing with it. Too bad that the game is over by the time I end this sentence and I have to take it off from the table because there is nothing else left. GG, now I have to go home early #RevenantOwnerProblems
(I don't actually own a revenant, but I am sure that the brighter paint will look great even if it is fighting for DE!)

Really enjoyed this episode, as much as it was aimed at beginners I would say that the ideas and tactics discussed served as a welcome refresher for any seasoned Archon.

Great episode. As a "new" dark eldar player this really open my eyes to the traps and strengths for the dark eldar. In the beginning of my dark eldar "raids" most of my opponents (friends) didn't know the strengths and weaknesses of my newest army. But they quickly learned or looked anti DE tactics up online... But I know now some of the errors I make. Like trying to make incubi to work as the Swiss army knife and the archon trap.
I hope I can surprise my friends again and win more games with my true kin.

Finally got round to listening to this episode yesterday and I have to say I really enjoyed it. You both bought up some interesting points and your guest was very informative and pleasant to listen to. Even through I am a vet of 15+ years I still enjoyed this and got stuff out of it Smile

A thought for a show idea. I have seen quite a few new players to dark eldar asking about colour schemes and kabals/coven schemes. Maybe you could do an episode about fluff from a few kabals or how to write your own, and how you would go about choosing a colour scheme (research, sketches, codex pics ect). Could be quite interesting

I was intrigued at some of the subtle differences between the hosts' opinions on units now and when the codex came out.

I probably pulled back on the bikes...maybe? I don't recall how much I did or didn't endorse them, myself.

I liked varied opinions on ravagers and lance count in general. Great episode!

Glad to hear, and you're very welcome!

So glad to hear that you have found a group to gel with. This is a game that is meant to be fun. Doing it with the right people is well over half the battle Twisted Evil
