My local flgs is holding a speed gaming event - eight half-hour games over the course of a day, not kill team rules or anything special, just standard 40k with no force org - and I've been contemplating lists. We get 250 points to play with, and have no restrictions on what we can take along. We're limited to five minutes a turn, so I'm not expecting many hordes. There's also been a bit of a moratorium on summoning. Consequently my main concerns are MEQ, TEQ, AV10-12 and Flyers.

I've been wracking my brain trying to come up with a DE list that would have a chance of providing a solid answer to all of those threats, and I'm coming up short. I've got a brutal Eldar list, and fairly solid Chaos Daemons and Tau lists to compare to, and I'm struggling.

Eldar:
War-Walker: 1x EML with Flakk, 1x Scatter Laser
Hornet: 2x Pulse Lasers
Hornet: 2x Pulse Lasers

Chaos Daemons:
6x Screamers of Tzeentch
1x Burning Chariot of Tzeentch

Tau:
Stealth Team: Burst Cannon, Burst Cannon, Fusion Blaster w/ target Lock
Broadside: High Yield Missile Pods, Plasma Rifle, Early Warning Override
Broadside: High Yield Missile Pods, Plasma Rifle, Early Warning Override

What would the Dark city take to take down these lists? Should I just go blasters in a boat and reavers or is there some possibility I've overlooked?

I was coming up with similar results Lord Alino, but I was concerned it was just a bit too squishy. Having slept on it I've come up with the following:

3x Trueborn, 2x Blaster, 3x Haywire, 3x Plasma, 1x Shardcarbine - 80pts

Venom, 2x Splinter Cannon - 65pts

Ravager, 2x Dark Lance, 1 x Dissintigrator - 105 pts

This feels like a more durable version of the above, with a more mobility and a little more flexibility. I'm even tempted to go full dissie on the ravager, as it would pose a credible threat to AV 10-11 flyers and TEQ alike, however, that means I'll be relying on the trueborn to deal with AV12+.. dangerous, but possibly a worthwhile risk.

That seems pretty good. How about 2 Dissintigrators instead of 1? Also, why would you fight fliers at 250 points?

With my meta it's a given. I'll be surprised if I don't see at least two lists with flyers on the day. It's just how it is around here!

Two dissies sounds solid to me. I think I'll be heading in that direction. TEQ beware!

Two lists with flyers? Hmm... Luckily it's not 350 unbound. Can you imagine fighting a Knight Titan?

Also... if you drop the haywires and that Shard Carbine, you could put night shields on the ravager which could potentially be worth it.

This is a good call. Reduces the schizophrenic targeting priorities of the true born squad, and counters a lot of medium to short range guns aimed at the boat. Cheers!

You're welcome. I was thinking there's not really a need to put haywires or a shard carbine on the Trueborn. I mean, they shouldn't get in CC but hey hey you've got plasmas.

Cheers again!
