PostSubject: My 1St 1k list    Thu May 26 2016, 06:29

Hi all just started a dark eldar army and got my 1St 1000 points so just after a few pointers and what possible changes people would recommend. Play a couple of games with mixed results from tabling opponents to crushing defeat.

Hq
Succabus with a grave

Elites
3 grotesques in a raider

5 true born with 3 blasters in a venom with extra cannon

Troops
5 warriors in a venom with extra cannon

5 warriors in a venom with extra cannon

Fast attack
5 scurge with 3 haywire blasters

Razorwing with dark lances

Heavy support
Talks

That makes exactly 1000 points.

I put the Hq in with the grots for the much needed ld buff.
Let me know c&c
Thanks

Just noticed my phone changed some of the words

The succabus has a glave and the heavy is a talos not a talks
Sorry about that

Hiya welcome to the group.

For a start it's pretty good though I would edit a few things. what do you currently own for your dark elder first though?

Hi and welcome, Dark Eldar is definitely the bipolar army of 40k, in that the wins and losses swing so dramatically so don't get so bummed out if you experience a 5+ game losing streak. Although,.what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

I have everything from my army list above. But I will look to increase my collection after I have finished painting my last model. So any ideas on what to switch out or where to increase is much appreciated

In terms of expanding you could get yourself 2 Ravagers, 6 Reaver Jetbikes, a box of Warriors and 2 more Venoms as you make your way up to 1500pts. Also, take the maximum allowed special weapons on Scourge and Trueborn to help improve their potential in battle

I'd consider dropping the trueborn with blasters to add a ravager with 3 dark lances and a unit of 5 kabalite warriors.

The warriors give you another objective secured unit you can have sit in your backfield on an objective, while the ravager performs the same function as the trueborn did, only at 36" range instead of 18".

Thanks for the advice on what to go for to up my army to 1500 points will look at these in the codex later. On the ravager option is the 3 lances and 5 rifles with some obsec better than 2 rifles 3 blasters and 2 cannons? As the true born are in a venom for mobility. I'm not sure?

Yes, it's better. Ravagers are better than trueborn with blasters, and significantly cheaper. Ravagers are AV11 instead of AV10, and have an extra hullpoint, while being 125 points. Across larger number of trueborn& venoms vs ravagers, you'd be able to pay for venoms with the points you save buying ravagers instead.

For instance, 3 units of trueborn w/3 blasters plus venoms would convert over, points-wise, to 3 ravagers and 2 venoms. The extra surviveability and range you get out of the ravagers is worth the loss of 33% of your splinter cannon shots.

Was looking at all the advice thanks so if I was to adjust my list slightly as I only play against s space marines and necrons. Would this list be better?
Hq
Succabus with glave
Elites

4 incubi
Venom

Troops
5 warriors
Venom with extra cannon

5 warriors
Venom with extra cannon

5 warriors
Venom with extra cannon

Fast attack
3 reavers with 1 caltrops

Razorwing with dark lances

Heavy support
Ravager 3 dark lances

Ravager 3 dark lances.

The succabus rides with the incubi. This list seems to have a lot more shooting capabilities but I don't think it has the survival. What are everyones thoughts?

I think it's a pretty solid 1k list. I'd probably personally swap out the razorwing for a third ravager though. The extra round of shooting, earlier in the game is probably better than the extra weapons and defense of the flyer. I'd also use any extra points you might have to put a klaivex in the Incubi unit. Rampage is really nice.

Just personal preference, though.

I did look at that but all 3 guys that I play with run flyers so to hand over the air with no guaranteed access to skyfire is asking for it IMHO.

Asking for what? Your flyer won't stop their flyer from doing what it normally does. It just gives you a chance to shoot it down. You could get that chance using a quad gun or something that's either cheaper or also benefits your ground forces at the same time.

But like I said, personal preference. Wink
