Hey fellow fleshformers,

After years of inactivity and selling most of my armies I decided to give dark eldar another try. I always loved the idea of the coven and now that wracks are plastic (I hate finecast), I can finally realise my (perverted) dream.
Problem is, I have no experience with the new edition whatsoever. So I need a little help with my list (please consider that I dont intend to win tournaments with this
, Im a fluff player).

To quote schwarzenegger: "enouff talk", heres aforementioned list: 1250p


Primary Detachement: Coven

+ HQ +

   * Haemonculus
       1x Close combat weapon, Gnarlskin, Liquifier gun, Scissorhand, Webway portal

>goes with the grots via wwp

   * Haemonculus
       1x Close combat weapon, Gnarlskin, Hexrifle, Scissorhand

>joins the "Sniper-squad"


+ Elites +

   * 3 Grotesques
       * Aberration
           Flesh Gauntlet, Liquifier Gun
       * Grotesque
           Flesh Gauntlet, Liquifier Gun
       * Grotesque
           Flesh Gauntlet, Liquifier gun


   * 10 Wracks
       * Acothyst, Liquifier gun
       * Raider
            Dark Lance
       * Wrack with Ossefactor
       * Wrack with Ossefactor


   * 5 Wracks
       * Acothyst, Hexrifle

> just to sit on own objectives and I love the model of the hexrifle


+ Heavy Support +

   * Cronos
           Armoured Carapace, Spirit Probe, Spirit Syphon


   * Talos
           2 Close combat weapon, Twin-Linked Haywire Blaster


Scalpel Squadron-Thingy:

*5 Wracks
* Acothyst, Liquifier gun, Scissorhand
* Venom
Splinter Cannon
* Wrack with Ossefactor

*5 Wracks
* Acothyst, Liquifier gun, Scissorhand
* Venom
Splinter Cannon
* Wrack with Ossefactor




So, any ideas or advise?

Thanks in advance,

cheers
Caspaar.

PS: I posted this from my cellphone, I hope the formating went well

EDIT: Updated the list, as Im new to the detachement-shenanigans

Hi, I'm also a fan of Coven and hear are my opinions (may be wrong):

- As you're using Dark Artisan Formation here, you have only one HQ left in Covenite Coterie Detachment. Thus you need one more HQ (CCD starts with 2HQ+2Elites).

- I prefer raider to WWP for grot delivery due to the T2 charge.

- For my experience, Ossefactor is one of our new treasures. It's also good in fluff too Wink

- IMO SC (for AI) and HL (for AT) look much better than HwB especially if Talos can pop out wherever he wants using WWP.

- You may try an additional formation (e.g., Scalpel Squadron) as this is Wrack-based list.

Thanks for the quick reply! Im really new to this whole formstion/detachement stuff, so sorry for the stupid questions. A HQ inside a formation does not count towards my min HQ?

A formation is a detachment and models cannot be part of more than one detachment. So if you wanted to field a Realspace Raider detachment and a DE Combined Arms Detachment you would need to have 2 HQ, 4 Troops and 1 Fast Attack as compulsory units.

Aaaah, ok. That leads to a lot of HQ though 0_o. But I could simply swap the hexrifle squad for another haemi
