PostSubject: Winning Lists   Wed Jan 10 2018, 09:53

This is a thread for posting up Drukhari lists that are performing well for you. Won a tournament? Post your list up here. Roflstomping all comers at your local store/group? Post your list here. Obviously it's all meta-dependent but new players might get some inspiration from successful Drukhari lists.

Gentle reminder about point costs. When posting lists on the forum, please do not include points costs for individual models or upgrades. Total cost of models and wargear in a unit is fine but no individual items please.

Sure I'll share. This list has become my current go to TAC list and is doing well in our local league. It was designed primarily with the ITC Champions missions in mind but has worked well in some Chapter Approved games as well.

DE TAC List [1500 Pts] 7CP

Battalion (CP 3) (Drukhari)
HQ
Archon: Agonizer, Blaster (WL: Hatred Eternal)
Archon: Agonizer, Blaster

Troops
Kabalite Warriors: Blaster, 5x Warrior
Kabalite Warriors: Blaster, 5x Warrior
Kabalite Warriors: Blaster, 5x Warrior
Kabalite Warriors : Blaster, 5x Warrior

This won't help for winning any tournaments, but it may for helping people just get started with the army. The list is 500 points, and so far it's tabled every army I've thrown it against by turn 4.

[HQ] Archon - Agoniser, Parasite’s Kiss, PGL 61

[Troop] Kabalite Warrior x5 - PGL 35
[Troop] Kabalite Warrior x5 - PGL 35

[Dedicated Transport] Venom - Splinter Cannon 95
[Dedicated Transport] Venom - Splinter Cannon 95

[Flyer] Razorwing Jetfighter - Dark Lance x2, Splinter Cannon 170

Warriors in each Venom means everything that enemies can target without deepstriking turn 1 have -1 to hit and invuln saves. There's enough poison shots to cause a lot of trouble for any infantry, and 2 dark lances is enough to at least cripple a vehicle with maybe 1 reroll most of the time.

It's low points, but it works for low point games Smile

My current 1850 List,  hasn't lost yet:

Battalion Detachment - 6CP

HQ:

- Archon, Blaster, PGL, Agonizer, Hatred Eternal
- Archon, Parasite Kiss, Agonizer

Troops:

- Kabalite 5-man, 1x Blaster
- Kabalite 5-man, 1x Blaster
- Kabalite 5-man, 1x Blaster

Elites:

- Sslyth x1 (Court of the Archon)
- Trueborn 5-man, 4x Blaster

Fast Attack

- Scourge 5-man, 4x DL
- Scourge 5-man

Heavy Support

- Ravager 3xDL
- Ravager 3xDL
- Ravager 2xDissie 1xDL

Flyers:

- Razorwing Jetfighter, 2xDL, TLSR, Missiles
- Razorwing Jetfighter, 2xDL, TLSR, Missiles

Transports:

- Venom 2xSC
- Venom 2xSC
- Venom 2xSC
- Raider 1xDL


Have the flyers make runs around the perimiter of the table. Put the (or both of the) Archon(s) + Sslyth + Kabalite squad into the Raider, put everyone else into Venoms. DS both of the Scourge, usually I will put these on the two back corners so that my opponent has to choose between 3+ directions of attack. Use the carbine ones as bait (only 70pt) to buy you a turn.

**BE MINDFUL OF DEEPSTRIKES WHEN DEPLOYING** Always, always, always remember to put keep an area denial bubble around your units, ie, spacing units out so there is no room for a nasty termie squad, etc, to pop up behind you. We have the speed and range to regroup 1st turn (w/out losing any firepower) so unlike walking marines this isn't too much of a hassle. The 2nd Archon can walk and help with this. He's basically just a tax, idc what happens to him lol but he makes a great distraction carnifex (and can do some work to boot!)

**PLAY THE OBJECTIVES** Tournament settings are decided by point count, not kill count. ALWAYS focus on the obj. over anything else

**HOLD ONTO THE SCOURGE (sometimes)**: Sometimes it doesn't hurt to hang onto your Scourge til T3. This is most useful vs elite armies or ones you think will be half dead by then. Elites have small model count and will be spread out by then so can't run back to your Scourge easily, fragile armies wont have any full-strength squads by the time your Scourge DS in to whoop some ass. VS Assault or slow armies I prefer to DS early and spread them out over the entire table.

**CP POINTS** I'd mostly save these for D rolls w/your DL. Reusing them for a W roll can help too if desperate. Otherwise until we get our Codex there isn't much to use 'em on (hence having "only" 6CP being a non-issue)

**HAVE FUN** True-kin FTW

Great list! It also serves as a reminder that new players (myself included) don't have to wait til they have a million models assembled before they can start testing out units and synergies.

@bizzareshowbiz How'd you find the 6 man Reaver units? I always thought you were better either going the whole mile and having 12 or running them in 3s to tie stuff up. How did you find the talos also? I've been considering running 3 separately in a Coven Spearhead with Macro scalpels and Haywire Blasters. Looks like a brutal list all in though.

Edited because I missed a word.

I don't belive you can do that.  You can only pick 1 drug once, it's only till you've used all of them can you pick the same one again.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Edit: I see what's happening now. Nm.

Thats an interesting take on reavers. Problem I see with 3 man units is that you might get blown between overwatch and close combat and that kinda defeat the purpose of them.

Talos are amazing IMO, they get the best use of the fleshcraft stratagem. Doing some tuning on the list I will try out a 3 talos unit and 3 units of 3 grotesques in a vanguard detachment in the future, but I'm happy with my spearhead atm.

I'm surprised to see that is such a common misconception. I just had this discussion in the Drukhari facebook group.

Once you have picked each drug at least once the limitation ends and you are free to pick whatever drugs you want for your remaining units.

I'm sorry, I don't follow.  "If you do this you cannot choose a bonus that had already been taken by another unit until all 6 combat drugs have been taken" it also says that's for all of the units, not just 1, otherwise it wouldn't make sense because there is only 1 unit that can take combat drugs twice and that's because of a special rule they have.

You picked Grave Lotus, the other items can't take it until you've taken the 5 other options.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to be wrong it would be so much easier to track, so please explain.

This thread is a place for list discussion, not rules so I'll try to be brief. If you have any follow up questions feel free to PM me and I'll get back to you ASAP.

As you said, the rule states that "If you do this you cannot choose a bonus that had already been taken by another unit until all 6 combat drugs have been taken", hence once all 6 combat drugs have been taken at least once there are no further restrictions and you can pick them freely.

Won a small tournament this weekend with this list based upon discussion from this thread;

Alaitoc Patrol
Farseer Skyrunner (Doom, Executioner, Warlord - Fate's Messenger, The Phoenix Gem, Singing Spear)
Warlock Skyrunner (Jinx, Witchblade)
5 x Rangers

Flayed Skull Battalion
Archon (Splinter Pistol, Huskblade)
Archon (Splinter Pistol, Huskblade)
5 x Kabalite Warriors (Blaster, PGL)
5 x Kabalite Warriors (Blaster, PGL)
5 x Kabalite Warriors (Blaster, PGL)
5 x Kabalite Warriors (Blaster, PGL)
5 x Mandrakes
5 x Scourges (4 x Haywire Blasters)
Ravager (3 x Dark Lances)
Ravager (3 x Dark Lances)
Ravager (3 x Disintegrator Cannons)
Venom (2 x Splinter Cannons)
Venom (2 x Splinter Cannons)
Venom (2 x Splinter Cannons)
Venom (2 x Splinter Cannons)

I honestly can't recommend adding a dash of psychic powers enough. My Farseer was by far my MVP, but in general the sheer amount of -1 to hit modifiers that this list has induced a huge amount of rage in my opponents.

9-1-0 across 2 local tournaments so far. Pretty standard but it works a charm. Should be noted that there's a majority of Space Marine players where I'm at, and SMs aren't very good right now. Special mentions to the Grotesques and the Scourges, they always pull their own weight.

2000 pts Tournament List:
 

Imo, HWB Scourges are the most underrated choice in the codex by far. Having at least one unit should be mandatory. They will never fail to finish off a wounded tank and their anti-infantry shooting isn't even that horrible if it comes to it. Add to that being able to short Eldar/Necron shielding and dropping on objectives last minute, this unit is an absolute steal for 92 pts.

Also, I only take WotLM if the enemy is passive and slow moving i.e. a gun line. If they have a lot of fast moving parts and dangerous assault options, I don't even consider it. The biggest mistake you can make is feeling the need to restrict your Ravagers' movement because of WotLM. Both re-roll auras combined make you about 25% more effective. That's obviously amazing, but not worth it if it means you have all your Ravagers multi-charged. Also if there's lots of psykers on the board i'm taking Ghost Helm every time. The re-rolling 1's to hit aura by itself gives about a 16% increase so the difference isn't huge if you miss out on the WotLM aura.

Only thing I can think of that would make the list better is if we didn't need to take those 2 useless Flayed Skull Archons. 180 pts sunk is no fun, even if they do have BS 2+ Blasters.

Took home a tournament with the following list

The tournament format didn't include kill points so the lahmeans are there to be cheap objective grab. I also figured that I would be facing ravager lists(which I did and I won against), against ravager lists the airwing is superior due to the -1 to hit. The bomb from bombers is also pretty great, since you drop in the movement phase it can really help up to clean up screens but also to clear out things or push the last wounds onto something that might be hard to kill for us normally: Riptides, grandmaster and such. But being able to clear stuff in the movement phase is really good, since you can blow away some bubble-wrap and maybe tie things with reavers.

I only got to go first in one of the games, so the list can work even if you go second. I try to keep the fliers faaaaar away from stuff like ravagers, then swoop in and start blasting. You can really press the advantage against your dark kin here.

I play the lists as followed

Everything but scourges on the board, play very aggressively with the bikes, they are throw away units to soak up fire and put a heavy push on people. Depending on what lists I face I also play aggressively with the bombers, push in, bomb, shoot, hope for the best. With lighting fast strat and 6+++ they are surprisingly durable. I try to focus on killing everything that shoots a lot and tend to ignore things that shoot single targets with high damage.

The list is fast, which is the greatest strenght of it, so push, spread out, clear out and move, move, move.

Strats I find hyperstimm backlash to be a very good strat on the succubus or wyches, the succubus with blood glaive gets 6 attacks with s8 which can pretty much serve as a surprise against monsters, but most importantly: vehicles. The Wyches can do the same trick against t7 and below, and they are great against other dark eldar players raiders/ravagers.

Things I would do diffrently


You might notice the lack of blasters - I do think that you don't need to over stack the anti-tank in my meta. Sure, blasters are great, but with the airwing I usually got all the anti-tank I need. In case of emergency, the dissies and the archon and above-mentioned succubus can wreck armour. But an idea would be to drop the scourges and fill up with blasters or give the scourges blasters.

Lahmeans - Don't use them if you play kill point tournaments.. or do, the army is so much MSU anyway that I might not be that important. You could replace them for Ur-Ghuls too, same points, but better for damage.

Bikes - Small units which you can easily hide, but that don't cost as much as if you had stacked them with weapons. Combine into bigger units if you want to avoid the kill point trap.

Relics - We had to note even the CP ones before hand, so I picked helm of spite, the whip might have been better on the other succubus. But both are viable.
