PostSubject: 2K List. Going with the flow   Tue Dec 05 2017, 17:18

Allright, I have been taking my Guard list to tournaments recently, but miss the Dark Eldar.
I want to be competitive, hold objectives and be able to erase units if needed.
So, at a tournament I am going to be running:

Dark Eldar
2000 Points


SIX (6) units of the following:
16 Kabalite Warriors
dracon with agonizer
2 warriors with Dark lance
1 warrior with blaster

One (1) unit of:
10 Mandrakes

TWO (2) units of:
Arcon/Agonizer (1 has parasites Kiss and hatred eternal)

One (1) unit of:
4 scourges w/Dark Lance
1 Solarite w/Blast pistol

One (1) Unit of:
19 Hellions
1 Helliarch

11 Drops
6 Command Points

Will use 1 Cp to Deep Strike hellions if needed (probably needed)

This will pretty much negate the effectiveness of enemy heavy weapons, as well as have a huge footprint that can control almost any objective. The Arcons are not too shabby with heroic intervention, and 20 warriors (1 with multiple attacks and an agonizer) can whittle down more expensive units. I do forsee using 2 CP to keep a unit or two alive though.
Hellions are key (brought in turn 2 or later), my best anti air as well as tank hunters if my lances are failing me. The mandrakes are sneaky good, with 20 shots that can cause mortal wounds on the drop in, a nice number of attacks and -1 to hit in cc as well as shooting.



I will let you all know how it turns out.

Please Do!

Love the list. Very Happy
Very interested to hear how it performs at a tournament.

Do you get much use out of the blast pistol on the solarite? He often is the first bullet catcher for me to preserve my DLs.

he is for me too, but I had 10 points left over exactly... not much else to spend it on...

Do you have PGL at all?

No, never found them worth their points. If i was banking on LD shenanigans, I would use them, but I would rather shoot twice with a rifle.

You can use your PGL in addition to your riffles.

^I can confirm that you are allowed to shoot both the PGL and your model's main weapon, I'm away from home at the moment so I can't find the specific rule, but all you have to do is hit them with the grenade, if you even kill anything with it is just a bonus.

Hmm. Well, as the pistol will never get a shot off anyway, i will switch it up to three PGL's.

Good choice.

3 PGLs will make back their pts, and then some.

Modified it a bit after playtesting for this weekends tournament.
Dropped the scourges- they were useless.
Took -1 CP and grabbed 6 fire dragons who will port in, and added another PGL to a warrior unit.

In practice, the games have all been positive, had a draw against 1 baneblade and 2 knight list, but overall looking good.

MVP every game so far have been the 20 man unit of Hellions.
