Hi everyone! I've only just started playing Dark Eldar (1 game vs BikeSpam), but will be starting a year long campaign within a group of four. The 2000 Pts starting army will, apart from upgrades, not be changeable during the the campaign, although there will be a 500 Pt sideboard.

Now I'm not looking to field a super strong list because 1 this isn't a tournament and 2 I'd like to try out a lot of different units.

The other 3 armies are Dark Angels, Imperial Guard and Tyranids.

I've put something together that I believe is solid, I'd just like some confirmation from more experienced generals.

Realspace Raiders Detachment

HQ
Archon, Blaster, Shadowfield (=> Blasterborn, will be my warlord)

Haemo, Scissorhand (=> Grots)

Troops
2x 5 Kabalites in Venom (dual SCs)

Elite
4 Grots in Raider w Lance

5 Blasterborn in Raider

5 Mandrakes

Fast Attack
6 Reaver Jetbikes w Cluster Caltrops

6 Reaver Jetbikes w Cluster Caltrops

5 Haywire Scourges

Razorwing w Lances

Razorwing w Lances

Heavy Support
Ravager w Lances, Nightshield


Dark Artisan Formation w Twin-linked Heatlances, Scissorhand, WWP

I plan on going null-deployment other than the Mandrakes and maybe the Raider with the Gots.

In my first game I made the Dark Artisan my warlord, but utlimately lost the unit to plasma and bolter fire after my opponent realized, that he wouldnt be able to beat them in close combat. The unit will already have a huge bullseye drawn on it, putting the warlord in there would be like handing out free points I feel.

Other than that I'm pretty happy with the list.

All comments welcome, thanks!

If you're null deploying, those mandrakes had better not be in range of anything. At all. Seriously, I don't think null deployment is the way to go here, you need something strong enough to give you board presence through till your reserves start to arrive, and 60pts of mandrakes aren't gonna cut it, even with a 2+ cover save (and let's face it, any kind of flame weapon makes them dedder than a dodo)

I agree, looking at the armies he's facing - IG can ignore cover, and DA can play the drop od flamer game if they so wish.

Still, with awareness of putting out the Grots if needed...? Could probably work - just pay close attention to your opponent's army list I suppose.

Hey! Thanks TBE and Thor for the fast replies and the explanation how IG and DA could counter null deployment.

The primary reason I wanted to deploy this way was due to my Ravager and a Raider spontaneously combusting during my enemies first turn during my last game, which kinda made me sad Sad

So against those 2 armies I shouldnt null deploy in the first game, after that depending on their lists. What about Tyranids, does it make sense there?

Also, what would be a good replacement for the Haywire Scourges vs the Nids?

Thanks!
