My friend commented that Brigades were only for large point games so I challenged myself to make a viable brigade list at 1,500. What do you think - will it work? Pretty light on CC - could replace the warriors with some wyches to make it more balanced - but they seem lackluster without succubus support and there would be no easy way to get her in a transport with them.

Annoyingly one medusae is just chilling on her own, and one warrior squad has no blaster -which absolutely wrecks my OCD

Note: this list works on my interpretation that although arcons and beastmasters allow you to take free deployment slots, you are under no obligation to actually do so.

1499 points


HQ:

Archon, blaster, agoniser (73)

Honestly yeah this looks pretty viable lol, got a special plan for the Flocks? I know they're just to cover the fast attack slots, but it's that it?

Figured they could provide a bit of cover for the archons as they move forward or generally just charge enemy shooting units to tie them up for a turn.

They are extra, but I think that single units are a great pick in any list - they take a lot of fire power for a 7 point unit.

I am more looking forward to getting multiple rerolls from command points on those three shadow fields

I like it. I always use my command points for better dark lance damage rolls lol

heh that's a fun exercise.
I went a slightly different route.

Archon +Agoniser
Haemonculus
Succubus (Glaive +Blast Pistol)

Medusa
Lhamaean
Lhamaean

Razorwing Flock
Razorwing Flock
5x Scourge +2x Blaster

5x Warriors
5x Warriors
5x Warriors
5x Warriors
5x Warriors
5x Wracks +Agoniser
+ Raider +DL +Prow

Talos
Ravager
Ravager

Razorwing Fighter
Razorwing Fighter

Now there's an assault force of the 2hq, 2 Lhamaean and T5 wracks in the raider, backed by the talos. The flocks can come too, or hide to deny kill points, or hide to take objectives late on.

You get 2 razorwings and a squad of scourges with a couple of blasters. overall, it's less fire power than your list, but it does have different threats. it could easily switch back to 3 archons and put back in a 3rd ravager. i'll have to play it and adjust as needed. Smile

Interesting list, I think though if I wasn't running the warriors in transports I'd drop the scourges and give each warrior squad a dark lance

Unfortunately, shadow fields can never be re-rolled for any reason.

I frak hate shadow fields. They're a "must work" item. I prefer "hope this works" items like PFP 6+++ The former is destined the fail, the latter can't disappoint.

I don't know if someone noticed this, but has Kehmor made this army list so that it's bulk is made of Start Collecting! Dark Eldar boxes?

I like that you were able to fit it all in although you might not go first against a lot of opponent's. My only concern is the razorwing flock. The index says 1-12 models per unit but the unit itself says 3 models minimum. Kind of a call there but considering its 1 power per 3 bases i think the index is a typo and not the unit datasheet.

The army has 11 deployment drops, more than some armies that size, but less than others I'd imagine.

As for razorwings - the unit says "up to 3 models" - I'd say you're fine under either wording, though obviously if you're using PR there's not really a reason no to take 3.
