PostSubject: 1500p, starting a drukhari/harlie army   Mon Nov 27 2017, 23:22

Hello! I’m new to the dark kin and aeldari-armies, and am in dire need of help plotting the painful and humiliating downfall of my frenemies whom (the fools) have challenged me.

I’ve some experience from playing other armies, but have after some consideration decided to start a (mainly) drukhari army. Well, I found the scourge-models and and realized I was playing the wrong army. I simply love the aesthetics of the army way too much to continue wasting my time on the lesser races. So now I’ve invested in some minis and is spending my time happily painting, however, to the point …

My goal is to create a functional all-comers list for friendly games, preferably with many of the awesome-looking models I’ve already started working on (proxies are fine). I’d really appreciate some pointers!

You need a Drukhari detatchment to take Drukhari, so you'll have to change the farseer out for a different HQ. The only way you can take different armies in a detachment is if you are using Ynnari rules (in which you would need a Ynnari warlord)

Not true.

You can play all Aeldari and be ok, you just dont gain Army stratagems or Tactics like Alaitoc and Beil-tan.  You can play what is called Soup armies, a mix of sub-factions. They just need to shared a faction, aka Aeldari.

Now About your list.

Is there a reason you taking Wyches? At this point the Troupes are just leaps and bounds better, they will kill w/e they charge and can even hurt many other things.


A Melee only Troupe unit with a Troupe Master is good, but make sure they all have Embraces, remove the FP, FP are good but only when you set up the units for them, having 1 lone one isnt going to do anything.

Aschen - that's not correct. You can legitimately take an Aeldari faction detachment and pick options from each of the Aeldari lists in the same detachment.

I'm not super familiar with Harlequins, so will defer to others there.

I would be a bit nervous about the Scourges getting focussed down first and lacking sufficient anti tank.

You have the Farseer as Doom + Fortune, but the only viable target for Fortune is himself. Wouldn't you be better with Executioner or Mind War instead?

Thanks for the answers and feedback!

Basically because it’s a cool model and I figured some extra bodies for counter cc would be nice. In addition, I’d like to mix some cc into what could become a very shooty list.

The farseer is there for doom! Also, I’m expected to play my first games index only, meaning that the new craftworld powers are off-limits.

Oh, and here I've been worrying about what will happen if I face a horde-ish anything! I calculated that my entire ranged anti-infantry arsenal opening fire into a doomed horde of boyz with force-field (or whatever it's named, 5+ invul vs ranged anyway) would need ~5 turns of shooting to decimate 90 boys, if within rapid-fire range. And that's with some morale casualties.

If the anti-armour is a problem, removing the wyches and proxing their raider with a ravager would leave me at 1438 points and with two more dark lances.

If I'd want to expand with more models, then what'd be a reasonable way to go? Exchanging the scourge dark lances with blasters and the void raven with a razorwing would leave me with 1359 (without the wyches and raider) points. Don’t really know what to do with that though. I’d prefer not to have more kabalites, but something nifty looking I haven’t put in my paint-queue -  like incubi, mandrakes, hellions or Taloi.

Keep playing the Wyches if you like them its a game about fun 1st Smile

About what else to get? Keep the Scourges with DL's they work fine, but for sure get a Flyer, use the flyer and the scourges. Mandrakes are all fun, good, fun to paint, and neat models.

I'll see about getting another flyer! The first iteration of the list will have to make do with only the voidraven Smile Oh yes, the voidraven *insert hysterical laughter, steepling and possibly a white creature of feline variety*

Many here LOVE the RWJF, i'm more of a Bomber person, having 1 of each is great tho. You can do some deployment strategies with 2 flyers.
