Hey guys, I posted way back in march about starting up a DE army and got some great advice, I've also done a fair bit of reading through the forum to see what everyone else is doing and have come up with a list that's done relatively well over the last few games, as a side note - my gaming group has decided to roll with the latest FAQ draft rules regarding Jink. What do people think of this?
w/ Shadow field
w/ Haywire Grenades
w/ 2 Incubi
w/ Raider w/ Nightshield
Kabalite Warriors x4
w/ 5 Warriors
w/ Venom w/ Dual Cannons
w/ 3 Lances
General plan is to spread my points with MSU giving me 8 obsec units, between the ravagers and the blasters in each kab squad, armor shouldn't be too much of a threat. Archon jumps in with the incubi and the klaviex is there in case of a crap challenge. (Incubi haven't performed super well recently but i'm yet to purchase grots which will be their replacement eventually). Gave the archon haywire to deal with dreads and the such. Hopefully the raider can jink to survive but this has been hit and miss, however, generally if they shoot the raider and it doesn't die straight up, it takes the heat off other units. I had tried out putting nightshields on my ravagers but jinking with them sucks turning them into expensive paperweights.
Won 3 with this list in the last week. (space wolves, nids, csm)
But took a similar list against space wolves again with stuff added on at 1250 (voidraven) and rolled awfully (killed 2 marines total in t1 shooting), and stripped a single hull point (t2), voidraven missed bomb and then scattered all 4 of its missiles. Was just one of those games where you look at your dice rolls and consider flipping tables.
