1500 Points: Venom Spam & Dark Artisan Formation Empty
PostSubject: 1500 Points: Venom Spam & Dark Artisan Formation   1500 Points: Venom Spam & Dark Artisan Formation I_icon_minitimeSat Jan 24 2015, 06:45

I haven't used the Dark Artisan formation yet (just got the second monstrous creature today!), but I'm really excited to see how/if it'll work. I also haven't purchased any Scourges (yet). It's also been recommended that I take 2 of my troop choices and turn them into Blasterborne to deal with vehicles. Not sure how I feel about that though, as Venoms can gank infantry from 36", while Blasters attack vehicles from 18" (so opposing roles with different threat ranges, although I do agree that blasters are badass).

My worries about this list: (1) not enough anti-tank (only one unit of Scourges in addition to the Ravagers) and (2) the Dark Artisan formation specialises in anti-infantry, taking points away from Venoms and Scourges and so once again, not enough anti-tank units.

At 1850 points I'd add a second unit of 5 haywire Scourges, a Farseer or Autarch on a Jetbike and some Windrider jetbikes as allies (the Farseer would specialise in the Telepathy psychic discipline to help support the formation, for example with things like Psychic Shriek). In any case here's the list:

Haemonculus Covens Formation - Dark Artisan: 415 pts.
- Warlord: Haemonculus + Webway portal + Scissorhand + The Panacea Perverted = 135
- Talos + Ichor Injector + Twin-linked splinter cannon = 130
- Cronos + Spirit probe = 125

Dark Eldar H.Q.: 125 pts.
- Archon + Venom + 1x Splinter Cannon = 125

Dark Eldar Troops: 420 pts.
- 5x Kabalite Warriors + 1x Venom + 1x Splinter Cannon = 105
- 5x Kabalite Warriors + 1x Venom + 1x Splinter Cannon = 105
- 5x Kabalite Warriors + 1x Venom + 1x Splinter Cannon = 105
- 5x Kabalite Warriors + 1x Venom + 1x Splinter Cannon = 105

Dark Eldar Fast Attack: 120 pts.
- 5x Scourges + 4x Haywire blasters = 120

Dark Eldar Heavy Support: 420 pts.
- Ravager + 3x Dark Lances + Night Shields = 140
- Ravager + 3x Dark Lances + Night Shields = 140
- Ravager + 3x Dark Lances + Night Shields = 140

1500/1500

I like the list.

I'm a fan of putting Blasters into my warrior units though. The five man splinter fire doesn't really do much, but the lone ap2 shot can really come in handy sometimes.

Not sure how they could fit in the 1500 list though without some major changes or gimping the WL.

Just my two cents, from a casual player.

You could drop night shields and take blasters. Also one Ravager can be exchanged for Razorwing.
And Panacea exchange could give archon another blaster.

I didn't notice the Night Shields on the Ravagers. Personally, I would drop them for blasters.

Good catch Razz

if you are taking the archon just to do the hq role. try taking the court with 3 meduae to ds with flamers ap3 or Lhamaeans for treat to monsters.
because a archon alone with no upgrade worth nothing and you can use the court as hq slot dont using him and 5 Lhamaeans or 2 medusae in a venon will do better than him for same points.
