Pages of Pain


What is this?

The purpose of this topic will be to provide a series of bookmarks to useful, meaningful discussion about certain army types, units, wargear, and other strategic debates. Hopefully everyone will learn something new from these articles.

How do I get in?

Well, basically I'll simple be adding discussions that I think contain meaningful debate and interesting ideas. In short - anything I feel like adding will be added. Feel free to write up some tacticas, mini-tacticas, or articles of your own. If you'd like to see your own work included. Drop me a line to the finished piece and we'll see about including it.

Tacticas

Plastikente's Dark Eldar Unit Guide - A comprehensive guide to the Dark Eldar.

Specific Unit Tactics

HQs
Sliscus Tactica

Elites

Troops

Fast Attack

Heavy Support



Wargear and Upgrades Discussion

How many dark lances do I need, and what counts as a dark lance?
Triple Heat Lance/Blaster/Dark Lance Probabilities - Probabilities that take Hull Points into account.

Overarching Strategy Discussion

Threat Bubbles - Understanding that range and mobility are connected - title pretty much says it all.
Unit Size - MSU and Full Size Squads for DE - explanations of how to decide the number of models to take in any given unit.

Added a Wargear and Upgrades section - because that thread with the Agoniser debate is really good and should be discussed. Not to mention, duh, there will invariably be good discussions of wargear and equipment that are not unit specific - so it really ought to have a section.

Fresh update of threads, lots of good stuff out there, We include everything from Scourge and Razorwing loadouts to some of the best discussion about WWPs I've seen which discusses it's viability issues honestly, and debates what will or won't make it work.

Fresh updates - moved Bear's Tactica and Hashimel's stuff into Pages to clean up the top of thread and keep actively posting in stuff closer to the top while still leaving them as easy to access.

Also - no one has been submitting any suggestions for updates - feel free to nom anything you think is worthwhile (it'll make my job easier Wink ) You can PM me or just post it here and request it be added, I'm an easy going guy like that. Wink

Just reading through this thread (which is very useful, by the way) and I would like to suggest a Coven style tactica, if that would be alright? Very Happy

Cheers.

Should some of these be re-categorized or archived now if they haven't been updated to 6th edition? Discussions on how good the Agonizer is for example seems... ill fitting considering how poor it is compared to some of the other options now!

Hey Thor,

I can contribute to this thread, but most of my articles are located on my blog:
http://lkhero.blogspot.com/search/label/dark%20eldar

There's tons of great stuff there and I implore you to check 'em out.

Let me know if you want to transfer any of them to here.

Hey Thor,

Sorry for the late reply. I'm afraid Thor isn't here right now, he is currently on vacation of a rather permanent nature. MWHAHAHAHA!

I have to say your blog has always been a fantastic source of DE information and one of the reasons I got back into DE at the beginning of 6th.

Having just looked through your 6th ed articles(again), I think this one would make a great addition. If you would be interested in transferring it.

Thanks,

Awesome stuff guys. I've posted (more or less) the same message on this, the massive tactica and Mushkilla's battle reports but its a great resource to come across for someone newly getting to grips with Dark Eldar. Cheers to all of you for your efforts.
