PostSubject: What next should I get?   Fri Sep 16 2016, 16:46

Hey all, Bnaca here.

So I am brand new to The Dark City forums, and Dark Eldar as a whole.
I have done a bunch of research on what works, different combos, and styles for the dark kin.
But in terms of my actual physical army, I feel a little short.

In my possession, I currently have (modelled):
-Archon with Agoniser and Splinter Pistol
-Archon with Blaster
-Haemonculus (from the clam-pack)
-2 Raiders, both with Disintegrator Cannons
-1 Venom with two Splinter Cannons
-10 Kabalite Warriors (no upgrades; would play them bare bones probably)
-10 Kabalite Trueborn (8 Blasters; two squads of 5)
-6 Reavers (two Heat Lances and two Cluster Caltrops)

What do you experienced Archons think I should get next?
Baring in mind, I don't care for Incubi, Wyches, Succubi, Wracks or either flyer.
I have different reasons for not wanting to use each of these units so I won't bore you with them.

Thanks!

Hi Cherrycoke, thanks for replying.

That was my first idea based on the general consensus of Dark Eldar tactics.
I haven't bought them yet, mainly because I'm not a huge fan of the models...
*gasps all over Commorragh*
I guess I just prefer the idea of Reavers, Blasterborn, Ravagers etc for my anti-tank role.

I would recommend more transports, most namely venoms, and a few Ravagers if you don't like Scourges.

Hi CurstAlchemist.
Thanks for replying.

So more transports is something I need to get, but what would you recommend I put in them?

I recommend Grotesques or Grotesque sub-ins.

For venoms, 5 man Kabalite Warrior Squads to keep them cheap for MSU venom spam, blaster or no blaster to points and taste. Grotesques are also very handy (best taken in the Haemunculus Supplement's formation) and Raiders with aethersails are good for bringing them into battle as you don't care if you jink.

Also keep in mind that if you just want some additional venoms you can take them, and raiders, in the fast attack slot if you have some empty slots.

Thanks for the feedback Curst.
I am planning on allying some harlequins with my Dark Eldar. Are there any obvious do's and don'ts or successful tactics when using them together?
Thanks!

Venoms. Definitely venoms.

Look up the freak show ideas from Jimsolo. He really has interesting ideas to capitalize upon the leadership attacks.

I say at least one more Venom, and then either a unit of Scourge or a Ravager.

Thanks Squidmaster for replying.
I think I might just do that!

And CptMetal... Thank you so much! That series of threads has helped me so much!

If you are bringing allies to the DE, just remember that they cannot start inside a ally's transport. So that means sitting on the ground during deployment, then jumping into the venom/raider turn 1 (and proceeding to act as normal).

This means there is no downside to getting some troops (read ObSec) with their transport, then shuffling around so that the ObSec transport gets your Harlie allies (maintaining the ObSec on the transport), and the regular transport gets the ObSec troops (and becomes ObSec). So double the objective scoring for free! (but enduring a turn of shooting if you dont go first).
