After been looking a bit around on the forum, and looking through the Dark Eldar Codex to try and understand, why people advise the different units, I think came to a list, I want to run, but would ofc like to know, if I missed something, or its just plain bad^^'
Atm I only own the Dark Eldar Codex, as the rulebook hasn't arrived yet-.-' (got an old 3th edition rulebook tho, never played tho), so I actually don't, know what CAD actually does compared to any of the other formations and detachments, but seems like the most recommended. Used BattleScribe to calc. the points and to make sure I didn't miss any needed units, or I went overboard with some units.
1x1 Lhamaean + Venom (Splinter Cannon) 75 Points
4x4 Kabalite Warriors + 1 Sybarite (Haywire Grenade) + 1 Venom (Splinter Cannon) [4x120] 480 Points
3x3 Reavers (Cluster Caltrops) [3x63] 189 Points
2x2 Ravagers (3x Dark Lances) [2x125] 250 Points
Total: 994 Points
As I'm entirely new to 40k, I tried to keep the different unit types down to as few as possible, till I learned the rules and basic tactics.
I'm aware, I lack melee, but with the limit that I kinda want to keep the unit type low, to not get overwhelmed by all the different rules, that's something I just have to accept for now. Also aware of I have 6 points, I could use on a Chain-Snares or Enhanced Aethersails, but that's just more rules to keep track of, which is what I'm trying to avoid for now.
I do have 5 Scourges (looked cool and the gf wanted to try and paint them), a Razerwing (looks awesome), 1 Archon (start box) and 2 Raiders (got them in some of the boxes).
Might try and "convert" the crew members from the Venoms to playable Wyches, so I don't have to buy those, or buy too many of them.
Now a bit further down the road, I plan to expand the list with a Grotesquerie or/and a Dark Artisan formation, mostly based on what I read on the forum (don't have the coven book), and possible add the Razorwing and Scourges to the army.
Does this sound like an okay list or did I overlook something? And is the future plan of the list any good?
Aiming for a core that works and from there try out stuff, when I can afford the models:)
