PostSubject: Drukhari vs Ynnari   Sun Aug 20 2017, 11:04

I have a game coming up, 2000pts of my Drukhari, taking on Ynnari.

So I figured I'd throw some ideas out, see if anything bounces back.

My opponent is a decent player, and recently switched from Craftworld to Ynnari because of the joy of Soulburst, and I'm determined to give them some form of cracking with proper pure Dark Eldar.
What he's likely to field will include Wraithguard with whatever their formerly template weapons are, along with Dark Reapers, Yvraine and a Wraithlord (or two). Also Wave Serpents.

My thinking to take on Ynnari is to try at first, at least for a turn or two, to not kill anything. Or at least, no full units. Yvraine will constantly heal, so try to weather her, but aim at reducing units in size as much as possible without taking anything out altogether.
Then, when enough is reduced to small size, start picking them off. At that level, any Soulbursting which does happen with either be annoying Yvraine psychic powers, or be coming from small units. So the damage will be far limited.

So my plan is small units. Several of them. I'm planning two units of Incubi in transports ready for my final sweep. Mandrakes up front to break their speed lines. But beyond that, gunnery lines I split fire on to target units.
Perhaps a weapons platform or two to try to eliminate the Wave Serpents as soon as I can (though I know thats quite difficult).

How goes my thinking? Do you think I'm completely wrong and stupid, and have a better idea?

You should destroy every vehicle first (they don't proc soulburst anyway).
Then, once you ampered they mobility, stay at a safe distance and destroy them. Only leave them with soulbursts actions that are useless, because you're too far away for it to matter.
So i would advice against taking too much melee. Playing MSU looks a bit odd to me, since you're offering multi-procs for soulburst. My advice would simply be target focus : destroy everything that can make the best soulbursts actions, and leave him with what's commonly known as "soulburst fooder".

Yea I'd definitely take bigger sized units and possibly be mech heavy. From the sounds of it he is going to be using a lot of meq and teq units, and our best weapon against those is our disintegrator cannons.

Against Wraithguard, I see Disintegrator Cannons being useful. Remember, Wave Serpents excluded, you have a monopoly on speed. You can afford to spread your units apart, and if he's fielding the flamer variant, you can make it so he'll never hit you at all

I was wary of using larger units, because once I start cutting models down a large unit is just a large target everyone can focus on. Thoughts?

With small units, his elite infantry will jump from slain unit to slain unit, comboing your entire army.
With larger squads, it's less likely to happen.

Everything, including vehicles, that dies will prock Soulburst - but it's only infantry or bikes that can use it (and the Yncarne - because they have the Strength from Death special rule).

No matter if it's from something dying, or from Word of the Phoenix.

an armoured core list should work well against ynnari. Maybe a little more dissie ravager than reaper, though

Cripple, Don't kill is a great way to beat yannari. Whittle down his units to uselessness, then deliver the killing blow.

That is really solid advice. Even more so if units are in soulburst range. The wraith units are easy to whittle down with disses and even poison fire without fully killing them off.

I've found dark reapers to be annoying since they can put a good bit of dakka and don't suffer from penalties to hit our flyers or venoms.
