Hey folks. Long time no see. Anyway, I'm playing a doubles tourney tomorrow. It's called Killa Kans and there are a few twists to it. First and foremost, it's a charity canned goods event. For each canned good you bring you get a ticket which entitles you to one reroll of one die. Normal rules pertaining to the un-rerollability of previously rerolled dice still apply. Still, that can be a mighty powerful advantage. I'm bringing around 30 cans. Hehe...nobody ever said that DE play fair.

Here's the what about the event:

And here's what I'm running:

HQ (255pts)
Archon (255pts)

Venom

Troops (375pts)

Kabalite Warriors (165pts)

Splinter cannon

Razorwing Jetfighter (140pts)
2 Disintegrator Cannons, 4x Monoscythe Missile, Splinter Cannon

Scourges (120pts)

Scourge
Scourge with Special / Heavy weapon
Heat lance

Heavy Support (110pts)

Ravager (110pts)

And my partner is running:



HQ

160 Mad Dok Grotsnik (basically an Ork Warboss with -1S, but gives Rampage, Fearless, and FNP to his squad)

Elites

108 6x Tankbustas Boyz with three bomb squigs, Boss Nob with boss pole
45 Trukk with reinforced ram, red paint job

Troops

225 19x Boyz with 'eavy armour, Boss Nob with Powerklaw
67 19x Grots w/ Runtherd with squig hound

Fast Attack

150 5x Deffkoptas with twin-linked rocket launchas

Heavy Support

140 Battlewagon with reinforced ram, red paint job, extra armor, 2x Rokkit launchas
105 5x Lobbas w/ ammo runts


Since it's a doubles event, I can null deploy (hooray!!!). I plan on doing so, letting the green mob swarm up and wrap themselves around objectives, and plan my precision strikes. The Archon will join the Scourges, of course, so that they can swoop in and fairly well guarantee the destruction of a piece of armor that absolutely positively must die. Ideally that will expose one of the opponents' warlords which can then be wiped by my Venoms or Razorwing. I actually think that even though I'm null deploying I will still bring the Raider in from our board edge. Hopefully the enemy will be engaged so that my paper boat can stay alive long enough to get its poison payload close enough to make those Racks count. Everything else plans on deep striking so as to pound metric tons of poison directly up the most sensitive parts of the enemy's rear....flank. The Archon's Venom will be flying empty, hopefully to be ignored in favor of populated targets. It'll try to zoom up to pick him up after he deposits the Scourges ~9" from their target. With any luck he'll be able to jump on board and flat out away to duck and weave and try to find reduced squads with a sarge so that he can use his Soul Trap to buff up (twice if I'm lucky) and then zip off to go Warlord hunting. If the board is cooperative, I'll try to put the Warriors in defensible positions near or on objectives and let the Venoms go a-hunting. Hopefully that'll present a difficult decision for target priority. The Venoms will be deadlier, but the Warriors will have Objective Secured. The Raider's role should be pretty obvious, as should be the Ravager and the Razorwing.

Obviously I have woefully little AT. The Scourges should be able to handle at least one target, but aside from that I'm leaving the AT in my partner's hands. I know, I know. I could drop some upgrades from that big fat Archon and kit the Razorwing to handle armor better. But I think that he's brought enough AT that we'll be able to handle what's coming at us. Especially since each player can only bring 1000 points.

Aaaaanyway, anyone have any thoughts, comments, criticism, or praise? I especially like praise.


I'll report back after tomorrow's killing. And charity, of course.

I just have a hard time seeing a fellow Dark Eldar player run a 255pt archon. You don't have any cc units, just drop every upgrade on him and keep the blaster. In fact, drop him altogether and take a Lhamean, and keep the venon. In your list, its just too expensive. You'll have like 185pts left over to buy whatever else you think you need

Did you read what I wrote or just look at the list? The cc is going to be well handled by my partner's Orks. My army is designed to be ranged AI. If there's an opportunity for me to get my Archon into a challenge then I'll do that, but his job is primarily to deliver the Scourges where I need them and then to survive. And with 30ish single die rerolls I believe his shadowfield will manage that just fine. If he has the opportunity then I'll fit him into whatever role he can fill...AT with his Blaster and HWG, challenge handler with his superior I, A, and ID, or even helping out a fading squad with his L10.

According to the rules of the event, the only slot I have left is Elite. Initially I had a WWP Haemy and a unit of 3 Incubi with a Venom, but I traded those for the above Archon with his Venom. So a naked Haemy and 3 naked Incubi or the Archon. I'd be giving StW away with the Haemy or with a Lhamean. With my Archon I believe I stand a much stronger chance of not giving up those points. Plus, if you read the missions, there are a number of points that only a Warlord can take advantage of. Also, that 255 includes his Venom, and those points would be spent on a Venom no matter what the configuration was.

So, given that I need a WWP for our strategy to work and that I need the most survivable Warlord possible, and that I can only take one HQ and the only slot I have left is Elite, AND that I absolutely will be spending 65 of those 255 points on a Venom, AND given the nature of the missions I'll be playing, how would you revise my list?

Yes to the first question, no to the second. BTW, this is in the wrong thread
