PostSubject: Beginner 1500 list - need help   Tue Apr 18 2017, 09:25

Hi, everyone! I played several games with Dark Eldar on the lower points level and I loved it so much that I decided to build a 1500 points list. This list is based on the models that I have. I'm not sure it will work properly, and that's why I'm posting it here. I really need your help in improving (or maybe even changing completely) my list.

Purge Coterie

 Archon (1) - 110pts
   1 Archon: Close combat weapon,Blaster,Webway portal

 Kabalite Trueborn (5) - 115pts
   1 Kabalite Trueborn: Splinter rifle,Close combat weapon
   4 Kabalite Trueborn: Blaster,Close combat weapon

 Raider (1) - 75pts    
   1 Raider: Dark lance,Night shields

 Reavers (6) - 146pts
   2 Reaver: Splinter pistol,Close combat weapon,Splinter rifle,Cluster caltrops
   2 Reaver: Splinter pistol,Close combat weapon,Blaster
   2 Reaver: Splinter pistol,Close combat weapon,Splinter rifle

Combined Arms Detachment

 Court Of The Archon (1) - 10pts    
   1 Lhamaean: Night Vision,Power from Pain,Splinter pistol,Shaimeshi blade

 Venom (1) - 65pts    Dedicated Transport
   1 Venom: Splinter cannon

 Kabalite Warriors (5) - 40pts
   5 Kabalite Warrior: Splinter rifle,Close combat weapon

 Venom (1) - 65pts    Dedicated Transport
   1 Venom: Splinter cannon

 Kabalite Warriors (5) - 40pts
   5 Kabalite Warrior: Splinter rifle,Close combat weapon

 Venom (1) - 65pts    Dedicated Transport
   1 Venom: Splinter cannon

 Kabalite Warriors (5) - 40pts
   5 Kabalite Warrior: Splinter rifle,Close combat weapon

 Venom (1) - 65pts    Dedicated Transport
   1 Venom: Splinter cannon

 Ravager (1) - 125pts
   1 Ravager: 3 Dark lances

 Ravager (1) - 125pts
   1 Ravager: 3 Dark lances

Dark Artisan

 Haemonculus (1) - 150pts
   1 Haemonculus: Scissorhand,Close combat weapon,Splinter pistol,Webway portal,The Nightmare Doll

 Talos (1) - 135pts
   1 Talos: Ichor injector,Close combat weapon,Twin-linked heat lance

 Cronos (1) - 125pts
   1 Cronos: Spirit probe

Well, the thing I'm relly afraid of in this list is this Dark Artisan Formation. It costs me more than 400 points, but will it do something alone in close combat? No doubt it will be hard to kill, but will it really DO something? If not, I welcome all of your opinions on how to substitute it.

P.S. Reavers can also be replaced by flyers.

P.P.S. I've just realised that I could possibly even run all the units in one CAD, without that formaition, as there is no need to free any of fast attack slots.

First off change the way you format your lists. We don't need all the gear just what you pay for, it clogs things up and makes it hard to read. I am by no means an experienced player but the dark artisan is usually to support something else like a grotesquerie. If it's deep striking it rwally won't do anything till turn 3 at the earliest. If you take off the webway portal and March it up the board it will draw tonnes of fire and save your other units. I would take off the webway from the Archon too. We have fast vehicles so you should be able to get in range turn 1 or 2 at latest. Coming on from reserves he may not even show up turn 2. Other than that it looks good.

The DA formation is quite good, so long as you dont expect to face a lot of grav. It is quite survivable, and mobile (assuming you take the WWP, which you should). The only downside of the DA is that it doesnt have many attacks. It loves to munch necrons/marines/MEQs, but will struggle with high T enemies with an invulnerable save.

Otherwise your list looks good. You have not spent lots of points on useless upgrades, and you have grouped similar weapons.

However, i dont much like the PC formation. By folding those units into a CAD, your troops will gain Obsec and you dont need the archon "tax". To make use of that formation, you need to invest in a squad of Trueborn armed with a special weapons rather than the warriors.
