I'm usually a CWE player and when the last codex came out with the Mantle I figured I may as well finally realise my dream of building a harlequin army. Dark Eldar seemed a much better choice units-wise to fit the theme so I promptly bought a load of wyches in preparation and just as promptly forgot about them. Now I find myself several months later with a new DE codex in which, according to popular opinion, wyches are terrible. But oh well, I'm committed now.

So I have the following list. Bearing in mind I haven't used DE before I was hoping for some advice in what I'm missing. I have around 200pts to spare and I figure I need more AT, and/or more weight of fire. One idea I'd had was two Hornets with pulse lasers and holofields, which comes to 190, but wasn't sure how it fitted with the fluff. Any suggestions welcome!

Dark Harlequins (1310pts)

Dark Eldar: Codex (2014) (Combined Arms Detachment) (906pts)


• HQ (150pts)
Succubus (Archite glaive, The Animus Vitae, Webway portal)

• Troops (515pts)
5x Wyches (Hekatrix (Agoniser, Haywire Grenades), 1x hydra gauntlets)
Venom (Splinter Cannon)

5x Wyches (Hekatrix (Agoniser, Haywire Grenades), 1x hydra gauntlets)
Venom (Splinter Cannon)

10x Wyches (Hekatrix (Agoniser))
Raider (Dark Lance)

• Fast Attack (241pts)
Raider (Dark Lance, Enhanced Aethersails, Nightshield)

6x Reavers (2x Cluster caltrops, Arena Champion (Agoniser))

Eldar: Codex (2013) (Allied Detachment) (404pts)

• HQ (150pts)
Autarch (Banshee mask, Fusion gun, Laser lance, Mantle of the Laughing God, Eldar Jetbike)

• Elites (194pts)
8x Harlequins (Death Jester, 2x Harlequin w/ fusion pistol, 5x Harlequin w/ Harlequin's Kiss)

• Troops (60pts)
5x Rangers


Cheers!

Ah the classic challenge of building an all Harlequin list. Cheers on the effort cause it always an awesome sight to see on the table top. If I were you I'd run all 5 man squads of Wyches in 5 Venoms and get maximum fire power (you'll need it running Wyches). As for your anti-tank issues why not rock a Wraithknight? Back in the day the Harlequin Dreadnought (Wraithlord) was a classic. Hey even the guy who wrote the Harlequin book for Black Library rocks a phenomenally converted Wraithknight and Wraithlords. Actually in the old school fluff Im pretty sure there was mention of Harlequin Titans! So thats what I'd do although the Hornets painted Harlequin style alongside the Venoms would look sweet!

Hi, thanks for the response! More Venoms would always be nice but as that's literally all the DE models I own at the moment, three more and another box of wyches would be a hefty outlay for a side project. But as they're also a dedicated transport for the Corsairs I have I might cough up for a couple more and run 4x5 wyches instead. Same with the wraithknight as I don't own one of those either, although at 240pts stock it'd also mean having to drop a few upgrades from the list above to fit it in! Maybe when (if) I expand the list to 2000pts.

It is a bit of a challenge running an all Harlequin list but as I don't mind losing and only play casually it looks like it could be fun to play! And also as you say look awesome on the tabletop. Love your own Corsairs by the way, hadn't seen your thread before and you have some fantastic stuff in there!

Thanks for the compliments Smile But yeah if all you have is in your list above, and you do have Hornets I'd definitely run them. Just say your Corsair buddies are riding escort for the Harlies!
