I'd suggest you go fire up a post in the army list section, you'll probably get more discussion about your list there than here.

As a possibly returning Deldar player, what is the current codex like compared to the 5th one?

I find it very good (and Covens book too) but some people don't like it. New power from pain is excelent and combined with covens version it gives DE army some good options. Mechanised lists are still very painfull to play against.

PostSubject: Advice on starting in 8th ed   Thu Nov 23 2017, 17:45

So, I am going to be starting DE and am looking for advice for a good foundation/purchases. Will be picking up the Start Collecting box then where to go from there? I have no experience with the DE only Space Marines, so any input is greatly appreciated.

Hey, friend.

So, in 8th ed Dark Eldar there are a small number of mainstay units and a large number of units that simply aren't worth their points.

Some popular suggestions for listbuilding include:

Trying to keep a ratio of 1 Dark Lance per 100 points, or more if you're capable.

If you're bringing a HQ, it should probably be a Warlock or Farseer casting Doom, Smite or other offensive powers (yes, these are Craftworlders.  Unless you're Coven heavy and taking a Haemonculus our HQ's just fall flat.)

Ravagers and Scourges are popular (though don't make the mistake of loading out the Scourges with Heat Lances, Splinter Cannons or Haywire Blasters).

Beasts are some of our best meatshields to defend against deep strikes and assaults (bubbling, if you're familiar with the term).

Kabalite Warriors with Blasters/ Darklances in Venoms and Raiders are a staple.

The PGL is almost always worth its points if you have a few left over at the end of a list.

Razorwing Jetfighters are amazing.

The debate between Disintegrator Cannons and Dark Lances is long and enjoyable, Dissies are better for Infantry, TEQ and other BEQ.  DLances are our best anti-tank and anti-monster.

Don't take Splinter Cannons as an upgrade, the fifteen points will be better spent elsewhere.

And always remember to charge the shooty units with your vehicles.

Thank you for the information, this is a tremendous help. My gaming group is running a campaign this coming summer involving only Xenos and I have always had an interest in the DE (Drukarhi), so this is a perfect excuse for me to start an army.

Hmm, the previous post was quite helpful I must say, but didn't answer the critical question - I have the Start Collecting box, what should I focus on buying next? Should I get some more Warriors and Venoms/Raiders? A Ravager? Some Fighters? Smile

I wouldn't invest too heavily until the codex comes out. Until then, I would focus on stuff that will be useful regardless. For example, warriors, raiders, venoms, ravagers. Can't go wrong with any of those. They have always been the staple of our armies and I can only assume that they will still be viable after the codex.
