Most of the above is pure guesswork or wishlisting. If it is mostly true then we may only be effected by the edition change the same as most other armies. But we were a lower/bottom tier army before. Maintaining the status quo means we are still lower/bottom tier. Yay for us!

I will wait and see what the full rules say, both for the game in general and the DE in particular but I have yet to see anything that leads me to believe we're going to be competitive.
Sure, go ahead, keep your baselss pessimism then. But absolutely none of the basic rules we've seen so far a definite nurf to DE, or anybody else for that matter.

And you feel free to cling to your baseless optimism. It's a free country.


You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting. In what world could you possibly beat me?

Is it? Where do you guys buy your guns?

Very Happy

Haha, but seriously, back on tppic: I actually find myself in agreement with just about everything The Count has been saying. Furthermore, the changes to cover are NOT helpful to us, and with far less shooting weapon options and the suspected "no armour mods on basic troop guns" thing, I suspect it's going to be far worse for us.

You ever try killing terminators with splinter weapons? Because that is what ALL space marines in cover are now against a weapon with no armour modifier.

Unless we get army wide ignores cover.... jocolor

Edit: on a more serious note, they might give poison weapons a rule equivalent to aos rending, nulling the cover bonus.

Optimist, Pessimist.. we can only go off what we know.
And from the history of GW's track record with Dark Eldar, i am inclined to be pessimistic with flashes of hope.

So pretty much, i agree with count and betray for the most part. It is not that they are 'eternally Pessimistic", it is that you can only get burned so many times before you realize that the stove is hot.

We can hope for great rules and abilities. I think, however, we are going to be staring vainly at our "Xenos rulebooks" soon, searching for something we must have missed because "there just has to be more than this".

I remember that feeling from our last codex. Don't you?

ATTITUDE: It is the difference between an ORDEAL and an ADVENTURE!

Okay first of all I'll start by saying, yes this is GW and we as Dark Eldar Players should expect the worst but hope for the best.

Second, we aren't even seeing the entire base rules with these reveals, we are only seeing small parts of them so we can't really assess anything at this point.

Third, we haven't seen the rules in part or in full for wyches so we can't really assess how they will interact in the game and even if we did see a complete datasheet on the wyches with all their rules explained we would only be seeing them in a vacuum without seeing the rest of our army and how things might interact.

cheers Applause, applause. I could not put it better myself.

My 8th edition fandex is complete enough for appraisal .  I'm sure there are inconsistencies, please let me know where they lie as you find them.  Thank you! Click here for fandex

What if out of left field the entire game turns into Voidraven Bombers everywhere?
