True, but they are likely out of double-tap and melta range reducing damage that you would have taken. Given that basic bolters can damage all but NONE of the things in our army it is making the best of a bad situation. You would also be able to attack the disembarked infantry from range with surviving Venoms for a late turn objective grab.

Just so I know I'm understanding, do you mean a late GAME objective grab?

Or LATE GAME TURN if we want to get fancy. Seems fairly obvious. Razz

Hey, no need to get your panties in a bunch. It's commonly viewed that late game means "On a late turn", and late turn means "in a late phase". I'm not the one who used the wrong terminology. I was just making sure you weren't talking about some obscure move I hadn't heard about. Razz

If he has range and LoS from the pod location to your army location, and also is on an objective you need to win, then you're obligated to kill those Marines (sounds like you would anyway, with them being probably Devs) and also kill the pod (or at least contest the objective depending on the needs in the mission). The one plus is usually if they are doing this you are likely to get some cover saves against them at the very least.

I forget the specific conversation or who brought it up, but suspect their core concept was pulling away the Sternguard-esque drops, or any assault drops, that will be inclined to drop into your face at your chosen deployment location.

I was wondering when the next episode will be released. You are doing a good job, pinpointing and highlighting the different units and their use. I have been following the discussion in the tactics forum where grotesques, null deployment and my thread about scourges have been brought up. Since null-deployment was seen in fifth edition, it was an interesting topic. My thread became a vast discussion, which shows there is a lot to say even about the less commonly used units.

The banner! Raise the banner!

An excellent podcast that draws away from the continual negative vibe that the Dark Eldar seem to be unnecessarily receiving as of late. I can understand some players perceptions in comparison to the top tier armies at tournament level, however, I personally have nothing but positive experiences playing my Dark Eldar army with my gaming group.

As Dark Eldar players, I believe we have some of, if not, the best looking models available and a backstory to boot.

ESE, Thor, Spider and Scorpion nailed the point on the head noting that many who come into the Dark Eldar camp play the army with the wrong mindset, and this is not their fault. The army is possibly one of the most difficult to build and wield on the tabletop due to the playstyle and the pointing of units and upgrades compared to newer 7th edition books.

Again, many thanks for the podcast and please keep pressing on painting the Dark Eldar in a positive light for the community.

Mythic Games in SC is a great store to play at. Unfortunately 40K is pretty dead here right now, especially for pickup gaming. The guys from Faultline Gaming Silicon Valley play a lot over in Mountain View and are a really great group.

Too true, I have been playing casually for years and am now getting back into the game and I STILL look for tactical help figuring out ways to make the 'Evil Elves Twig Army' more effective.

On another note, I am still re-listening to this episode over and over. Great Stuff!!!
