PostSubject: New to Dark Eldar, First Purchases?   Sun May 07 2017, 08:05

Hey everyone, I'm glad to be a new member in the forum.

I'm planning to head to my LGS next week for my first Dark Eldar purchases!
The plan as of right now is a Start Collecting box and a Skyplinter box (Raider+10 Kabalite Warriors)
Does this seem like a good way to start my army in prep for 8th?
Thanks!

If you're looking for a straightforward way of starting a Dark Eldar Kabal, that's a good deal and the units will work well together.

You should probably wait untill new edition release.

Whereas you SHOULD wait for the new edition, if you like the army I see no reason not to make a start. The way we play won't change THAT much.

With a Start Collecting and a Skysplinter you'll end up with 20 Warriors, 2 Raiders, 3 Reaver Jetbikes and an Archon.
Thats a good place to start from as it does give you a basic minimum CAD to build your army up from.
I'd say that (as per the current rules) you'd have one sub-maximum unit of Warriors in order to also get the Archon into a Raider (but that may change who knows?!) so I would suggest adding one Venom to the mix.

If you can afford it, get a bit of everything. Variety is always good, and it will give you a strong foundation to build a competitive arny on when 8th arrives. The models are nice and fun to paint as well.

The Gangs of Commorragh Box is a real bargain too, if you'd like Reavers and/or Hellions.
A new 40K edition is on the way, so i can't say anything about playability at the moment.
Also you could just buy what you think looks cool.

Scourges are a good idea too.
