I am going to Cruise hammer this weekend http://www.tshftopen.com/TSHFT_at_Sea.php
and they are fallowing the BAO mission pack. This is an event with winners from multiple TSHFT events. This is a small tournament with only about a dozen of so players. All very good, fun and competitive players.

I was going to bring my Eldar to kick some ass, but with my first love the Dark Eldar getting a new book then I feel that this will be good practice for them. I figure that I can get plenty of games throughout the week besides just tourney games. This will give me plenty of practice as I hope to get at least a dozen games under my belt with the new book.

The tourney is 1850

This is what I plan on taking. I will leave a few comments after the list with some alternate ideas of mine. I have points left over.

Rulebook CAD
HQ

Haemonculus 70pts w/ WWP, Armour of misery, Flesh gauntlet or Scissorhand?. 130pts

ELITE

5 Trueborn w/ 4 Blasters
Venom w/ extra cannon. 180pts

3 Grotesques w/ 1 Liquefier gun. Aberration w/ Agoniser
Raider w/ dissi. 210pts

TROOP

5 Kabalites w/ Blaster
Venom w/ extra cannon. 120pts

5 Kabalites w/ Blaster
Venom w/ extra cannon. 120pts

10 Kabalites w/ Scannon
Raider w/ dissi, NS and racks. 175pts

FAST ATTACK

5 Scourges w/ 4 haywire blasters 120pts

5 Scourges w/ 4 haywire blasters 120pts

Razorwing Jet Fighter w/ Dark Lances and NS. 155pts

HEAVY SUPPORT

Ravanger w/ 3 Dark Lances 125pts

Ravanger w/ 3 Dark Lances 125pts

2 Talos w/ Twin Scannons, Chain flails. 250pts


1830 points. I have 20 points left to spend. I may remove the combat weapon from the Haemonculus to give me 30 points left over.

Something I am wondering about is should I take an Archon with Shadowfield, WWP and either a huskblade or agoniser for 160pts. My HQ will of course be baby sitting the GROTS. I'd have to find a few more points.


I saw that Mushkilla mentioned the Aberration taking an agoniser for the killing of everything MEQ related. Seems like a good yet pricy idea. This makes the GROTS not just good at taking out GEQ, but MEQ as well. I would like to consider NS on the ravangers, but I don't see it as necessary as I don't always want them jinking. I'll consider it though.
With the Talos I am considering taking twin haywire instead of the Twin Scannons. But I think extra AI is always nice. Besides with Trueborn, Scourges and ravangers I think I have enough at.

Any ideas or changes you would make to the list? Could I do something better with the HQ? enough objective secured? Should I drop to Trueborn for more Objective secured Kabalites? Gunboad or Venom for Kabalite then?

Not sure how I feel about the very specialized dissie raider unit. Most advice I've read about Dark Eldar is for every squad to have both Anti-tank and Anti-infantry roles, the better to take advantage of openings of all kinds. Just my two cents, take with salt (Or your enemy's tears. Those are salty right?)

Yeah I see your point in that. The unit has one purpose and that is to reroll splinter fire. Will def consider the blaster.

I am wondering if I should drop the liquefier from the GROTS or add another 1 on the normal grot and maybe one on the haemonculus?

Chain snares good on my Talos? Makes them much better vs other MCs and helps from those dreaded 1's to wound

I would say the chain flails are fine (they're only 5 points), I would just trade the Dissie on your Dissie Raider up for a Dark Lance. Way cheaper than a Blaster on your infantry.
