PostSubject: 1850 - Harlequins - Incubi Competitive/Semi-Competitive   Tue Feb 14 2017, 01:33

I'm aiming to be competitive/semi competitive with this list of Harlequins + Dark Eldar. I wanted to build a list where i can go real hard in melee using my favorite dark eldar unit the Incubi, alongside all of the Harlequin models that i own.

I used a CAD with a bunch of venoms to take objectives and annoy the opponent along with the skyweavers and voidweaver. The incubi raider can either arrive via deep strike or start on the field to put added pressure on turn 2.

The succubus join a Troupe unit each and arrive via the webway to present an imemdiate threat to any opponent. The armour of misery + mask of secrets combo to get a nice leadership bomb going right from the gate and the animus in order to get a neat power from pain bonus on the DE models. I considered haywire grenades instead but opted for the animus as getting early feel no pain and fearless can help a lot in objectives.

Has anyone had success with the Cast formation? It seems like it has too many limits. The Jester needs to stay with the squad, meaning either an assault unit staying out of combat so one model can shoot, or a shooty unit being drug into melee. Neither seems ideal. And they need to walk (or embark in an allied raider turn one).

I haven't tried it but the list is built to bring the unit out of the webway portal by attaching the DE character thus passing over the 'they have to walk there' requirement. Trying to make the most use out of the death jester by performing a "fear bomb" attach on arrival and then proceeding to engage in assaults for the rest of the game. At least that's the plan.

I made some changes to this list though to give me more anti-vehicle punch and added unit survivability by replacing the succubus with archons.

As an alternative I could drop the talos, add another unit of warriors w/venom and give the second archon the archangel of pain to make the fear bomb extra dangerous against non-space marines.
