PostSubject: Army list request   Tue Apr 25 2017, 11:00

I've got a large selection of dark eldar, and am looking for new list ideas for 1000/1500 pts, casual/friendly games, unspecified meta. Counts-as/Proxy acceptable, regular DE and Ynnari rulebooks present, Haemonculus Covens rules accessible to me. looking to expand my grotesque/talos selection anyways when i work through my current paint projects. I do not have access to my miniature selection this very moment to actually count, so numbers may be off.

If my memory serves right, My selection of models includes:

HQ - 3 Archons, 2 Haemonculi, 1 Succubus, Lelith Hesperax, Drazhar, Visarch, Yvraine

Troops - 50 fully painted Kabalites w/ rifles, 8+ kabalites with blasters, a dozen or so with splinter cannons, 5 or so with dark lances, a ton of partially painted kabalites (like another 50, 60?), 2 Sybarites, 20 or so wyches (old metal ones), around 4 Hekatrix (old ones with whip)

Dedicated Transports - 2 Venoms, 4 Raiders

Elite - 4 Incubi, 2 Klaivex, 10 Mandrakes, 2 Grotesques

Fast Attack - at least 6 old Reavers, around 5 Hellions/Beastmasters, around 10 Khymaeras, 20 Scourges (10 new, 10 old), 2 Razorwing Jetfighter

Heavy Support - 1 new Talos, 1 old Talos (if i can find it), 2-3 Ravagers (counting the old asdrubael vect ones)

Lord of War - Yncarne

Harlequins - 1 Troupe box, 1 Shadowseer, 1 Solitaire, 1 Death Jester, 1 Voidweaver box

Nice collection!

I'd help, but I don't make casual lists, and am sort of on a list-building hiatus until 8th edition comes out, unless I get specific requests.

Bah, screw it...here are a couple quick lists(I have trouble saying no to people asking for help once I start typing):

1k: DE Combined Arms detachment:

HQ:
Succubus w/Archite Glaive 95
Troops:
2x 5 Kabalite Warriors w/Blaster in a dual splinter cannon venom 240
3x 5 Kabalite Warriors w/Blaster in raider with dissintegrator cannon 330
ELITE:
3x3 Mandrakes 108
FA:
1 Beastpack w/10 Khymera 100
2x 3 Reavers w/Cluster Caltrops 126

TOTAL: 999 Points

And at 1500:
DE Combined Arms detachment:

HQ:
Succubus w/Archite Glaive, Parasite's Kiss, and Haywire grenades 105
Troops:
3x 5 Kabalite Warriors w/Blaster in raider with dissintegrator cannon 330
2x 5 Kabalite Warriors w/Blaster in a dual splinter cannon venom 240
ELITE:
3x3 Mandrakes 108
FA:
1 Beastpack w/10 Khymera 100
2x 3 Reavers w/Cluster Caltrops 126
Heavy Support:
2 Ravagers with triple lances 250
LOW:
The Yncarne 275
TOTAL: 1498

They probably won't win you any GTs, but these lists should be fine for casual play and don't require you to buy anything new. Just throw the succubus in with the khymera, preferably hidden until they get to move, and use the khymera's movement range(stringing them out to stay in coherence with the slower succubus) to get into melee ASAP. Then you use all of those pile-in moves, challenges and consolidation moves to sort of slingshot the succubus forward. Useful trick for getting her into combat quickly.

I don't think ynnari lists are that strong with splinter weapons, and since you have lots of those, that's why I went with standard DE Combined arms detachment. Keeping obsec plus power from pain on your kabalites and their transports is probably better than power from death.

Luckily, however, the Yncarne can be added to any DE, Craftworld, or Harlequin list that has a slot for it. So you can have some fun with that guy in the 1500 list. Probably too expensive to play him/her/it at 1k.

I hope that helps. Good luck and have fun! Wink

P.S. Welcome to TDC!

i'll definitely try out the 1k list tomorrow, thanks!

/Edit: and to explain why my collection is this large - i've started collecting since 3rd ed. Remember the old starter box from then? Marines vs Dark Eldar, and my dad and i had at least 2 of those. Got back into the swing of things during 6th ed after a hiatus. In fact, it'll most likely be my father who gets to see how this list works.
