PostSubject: My first 1850 points army list   Sat May 28 2016, 20:23

Hello everyone, I'm new in the forum and also my English skills are rather poor so I apologize for any mistakes i will make Embarassed . Recently I came back to this hobby (had a few years break) and actually I bought some packs of Dark Eldar Smile also I'm new to this army but to be honest I didn't looked after any advice and I made my army list on my own. It looks something like this:

HQ:
1 Archon - Blaster, WWP, Haywire Grenades - 115 pts
1 Raider - Dark Lance - 60 pts

Elites:
5 Trueborns - 4 Blasters - 115 pts (together with Archon)

Troops:
5 Kabalite Warriors - 40 pts
1 Venom - 2 Splinter Cannons - 65 pts

5 Kabalite Warriors - 40 pts
1 Venom - 2 Splinter Cannons - 65 pts

5 Kabalite Warriors - 40 pts
1 Venom - 2 Splinter Cannons - 65 pts

5 Kabalite Warriors - 40 pts
1 Venom - 2 Splinter Cannons - 65 pts

Fast Attack:
5 Scourges - 4 Haywire Blasters - 120 pts

5 Scourges - 4 Haywire Blasters - 120 pts

5 Scourges - 4 Haywire Blasters - 120 pts

1 Razorwing Jetfighter - 2 Dark Lances, Splinter Cannon - 150 pts

1 Razorwing Jetfighter - 2 Dark Lances, Splinter Cannon - 150 pts

Heavy Support:
1 Ravager - 3 Dark Lances - 125 pts

1 Ravager - 3 Dark Lances - 125 pts

1 Ravager - 3 Dark Lances - 125 pts

Total Points: 1745 (I have a hole in points because I bought Venom as a dedicated transport for Trueborns when they are going together with Archon in Raider, soooo yeah my mistake).

I bought all necessary models for this army list (expect this hole) but after that I started looking, searching and reading other topics and I saw that trueborns are no longer viable because of new FAQ changes (at the beginning i also bought each unit of Warriors one Blaster but in the same way I found that is not worthy so i resign). So my question is, what should I change in my army list to work better? I dont want to change my whole list, maybe switch some of the models. I want to start from the beginning as mono Dark Eldar player, but also I want to try play more competetive with this list (I know that in competetive scene Dark Eldar work better in alliance with Eldar). Is this list have a little chance in competetive games or is it totally garbage in current meta? I don't really know this new Detachment system also I don't remember basic rules yet XD lets take it step by step, i will be back in the game soon enough i think! I will be grateful for any advice and tips from your side guys Smile Cheers!

Hello and welcome.

If you have not done so already you should go and listen to the Splintermind podcast; Realspace Raiding for noobs and get some tips on how the Dark Eldar play. It's a great episode and offers you some great tactics to use in your next game.

Lists all depend on your meta. For me, I fight Mech, Space Marine Bikes, Thunderwolves and the odd Wraightknight or Imperial Knight so I need to think about how am I going to handle these things and then make my list and my tactics around killing them.

Advise for your list; I find that 3 squads of Haywire Scourge is too many, I use 1 to good effect but I also have squads of Reavers and Grotesques to help with Anti Tank too. If you like Grotesques, then take them in their formation from our supplement book, the Grotesquerie. I like either 3 or 4 man units but some people take big blobs and deepstrike them down. The Grotesque models are expensive but you can find conversion ideas online.

List building note: IC's attach to other units NOT vice-versa. As your list is currently constructed your Trueborn MAY NOT begin the game embarked upon the Archon's dedicated transport as units may not begin the game embarked on another units dedicated transport (excepting IC's attached to the transports unit) so unless you have a highly tactical reason for wanting an HQ raider instead of an Elite Raider I would advise making the Archons Raider the Trueborn's dedicated raider instead.

Hey, thanks for some advice, I will surely look at these topics. Grotesque formation looks pretty interesting, I will think about them. And @amorrowlyday thanks for this tip, I didn't even know that, appreciate it Very Happy
