PostSubject: Until 8th   Sun May 07 2017, 11:52

Hi guys, I have a fledgling dark eldar force I'm building up. Now 8th is just around the corner, I have 3 boxes to build.

1 box of wyches ( I am praying they will be as good as our kabalites in 8th)
1 Talos
1 box of crypt horrors which I'll convert into grotesques

Which do you think I can get away with building and be a safe bet they will be ok in 8th? I'm thinking the grotesques, because their box has only 2 weapons. Which means if I build them stock, I should be 8th proof.

Does anyone feel like I should wait on the Talos and wyches to see if special weapons would be worth it? Or plunge in, build and stop being a wimp?

The whole point of 8th seems to be a rebalance of everything, so I sincerely think that all will be decent and viable.
I would say dive head long in and just build with whatever is good now. Weapons will still be sort of what they are like now, at least in terms of their power level, so just go ahead.

Build whatever you want however you want. Worrying about list optimization before you even have a list is putting the cart before the horse.

+1 @TeenageAngst: Getting models assembled and painted is 90% of the battle.

My first year in the hobby I did nothing but learn to build and paint while reading about the lore, never played a game until I had 1000 points of painted dudes. That was honestly my favorite time in the hobby... >___>

Sounds like a good plan. This once I finish painting these dudes I'll have 1000 points.

Thanks guys
