Episode 19

Oops, forgot to post a notice!

We are joined by Zach from the G3 San Jose group to talk Tau! Zach helps us review the changes to the Tau codex and new formations while giving insight on what to expect when fighting the Fish People. What to do, what to avoid is covered. Episode 19 also features a 3,000pt battle report with Andrew (BAO interviewee) teamed with Brian against Zach and Doug (AKA: Replacement Geoff of IC fame)

The Battle Report seems heartening. You were screwing around with weird and potentially sub-par units, while they "screwed around" with grotesquely powerful big guns, and you still came within 2 pts of a win.

I wonder, do you actually do questions anymore?

If yes, I wonder in which direction you would like to see Dark Eldar go in the future? (assuming we get a new Codex eventually). It looks like Eldar both have better speed, damage and armor while Corsairs have better speed, damage, armor and other playthings...

Just going for "Glass Cannon" in a high damage, low toughness way of thinking, hardly seems to be possible with such fierce competition (and it gets dull after a point). I've already written my personal opinion here and think we should go fore more "deep striking shenanigans" and "cheat" like Phil Kelly had in mind.

So for the question: Does Dark Eldar have a future, what will it be and how should it look like?
I am not talking about tweaks and buffs to our current codex, but rather where our focus and strengths should be (apart from being great taxi drivers and having awful lots of poison).

I know, DE should not be compared with CE so often, but now with Corsairs outperforming us too it looks like, if the current design of the Codex reached a dead end and could use a soft "reimagining" or "refreshment".

It was really enlightening to listen to this podcast.

The two guests who provided some much need information about what to expect when the fish men come knocking.

Cheers lads

I also appreciated the Tau player's well thought out advice to us on how to deal with Tau. That's what I want from these interrogations ( I mean interviews! Razz )

" This is what my army does. This is what it does well. This how I approach stomping Dark Eldar into the mud. " and finally, "this is what concerns me when facing Dark Eldar"

Thanks guys! Keep up the great work.

As always, a great listen.

I very much enjoyed the inclusion of the battle report as well.
