Ah, that would make sense. Shame really, to limit the inclusion of Incubi because they need to be taken in a particular combination to be effective.

They need to be taken in a particular combination to be most effective - pretty much all units are like that. There's a reason no sane player takes Shredder-born and also why you don't see Dark Footdar. Incubi, sans grenades, are still a pretty solid choice, you just limit your optimal assault targets. They're still much better off than many other units in our Codex if not taken in the 'optimal' setup.

another thank you from the bottom of my cold heart.

I am always happy when the army i pick has a forum that is both helpful and colorful.
Some armies just dont get the same amount of attention or discussion.

so yeah from a new player, good job! i cant wait to see the heavy unit section

Looks like this is coming along really well.

Quote :
If you want to use Harlequins, try this build: 4 Harlequins with Kisses, Troupe Master with Power Lance, Shadowseer [174].

I would drop one of the kisses in the suggested build so it looks like you are following your own advice. Other then that it all looks fantastic.

As for the the fast attack section I'm going to be re-publishing my original reaver guide, and a new more advanced guide over the next few days which might help you out with their section.

Look forward to the next part! Smile

Fantastic job on the fast attack section Plastikente. Can't wait for the heavy support section, I'm impressed you are pumping out sections of this guide in such a timely manner. You are truly a boon to the denizens of The Dark City. Smile

I'm as well looking forward to the heavy section part. This is where I most wonder what to bring in my lists. It's obviously a decision depending upon the other choices, but still, would be nice to get some proper written thoughtful ideas.

So am I. It helps that I get a couple of hours on the train at the beginning and end of each week. No estimate yet for when HS will be done, but hopefully within the next couple of weeks.

Wow really great stuff.

I am wondeirng are you going to do one for "archtype" lists and one for eldar allies as well? I am mostly thinking some of the good choises from eldar or eldar corsairs lists. Not one whole post for each of their HQ and fast attack etc.

Fantastic read and a gem to anyone starting out, or even for veteran players polishing tactics

Great work, thanks to Plastikente and all involved with this Smile

Thanks Mushkilla for the link, will check out the drafts too

I wasn't planning to. I could maybe have a look at it once I've finished the 6 sections that were originally planned.

Well eldar/eldar corsair allies do open up some nice new units.

Striking Scorpions
Fire Dragons
Wraight Guard
Rangers
Guardian Jetbikes
War Walkers
Wraight Lord

Corsair Prince
Eldar Corsair Squad
Corsair Wasp Assault Walker
Corsair Jetbike Squadron
Corsair Venom
Nightwing Interseptor
Corsair Phoenix Bomber
Corsair Warphunter

OK, I can see how that does seem like a lot of extras work. However it does add a lott of options to the dark eldar list along with buildings you can buy etc.

Definitely finding this useful Plastikente, thanks for doing this. One thing I would add is to the discussion on flickerfields, that they provide an invulnerable save rather than the cover save that jink gets you. Means that flamers and other ignore cover weapons don't get round it, as well as the 'perfect timing' psychic power from divination that a lot of players use.

I like the final version of the heavy support section, great work. You do realise that this is already over 18000 words long! Smile

Woah, epic! I was thinking maybe it needs some more pictures to break up the text...

It may be a little while before I get the Special Characters drafted, as there's quite a lot of ground to cover. And after that, I think I'm going to take a break. I know there is scope for loads more: Forgeworld, fortifications and allies to name just a few, but I am running out of steam (or perhaps words) a little.

As a newcomer, this has been a tremendous help in planning my army lists. I'd probably be flailing about, caught inside my own shardnet, without it.

Huge thanks to Plastikente for this.
...And a slightly smaller thanks to everyone else involved.

I'm right there with Erebus, Plastikente. This has been a huge help. And what perfect timing, when I'm just getting started out with my DE army!

Definitely looking forward to your special characters write-up!

Accuse me of threadomancy if you must, but i was just directed to this set of posts after asking a question, and i MUST state that this was a HUGE help to me!

Thank you for writing this. I know it must have been very taxing on you to do so personally, so i will be sending some suitable slaves to you shortly, to do with what you will in an attempt to restore a bit of vitality...

It felt like a lot of members were missing this fantastic thread (even though it was linked in the pages of pain). So I thought giving it it's own sticky might be beneficial as I think a lot of new users are unaware of it's existence!
