So its been a while since i posted a footslogging list here, i guess its time again.

So far this list has had one game against Black templars. I got beaten to death within 5 turns and it was still alot of fun. I am going to give the army a second chance thou, lets see if i can manage to work this baby around.

I play in a very competetive envoirment and are up against some really hard enemies, this just makes it fun.

Haemonculus: wwp 85

4 Trueborns: 2 dark lances 98
4 Trueborns: 2 dark lances 98
10 Harlequins: 10 kisses, 1 fusion pistol, shadowseer 260

20 Warriors: 2 dark lances, blaster, sybarite 255
10 Warriors: dark lance, blaster,, sybarite 140
10 Warriors: dark lance, blaster,, sybarite 140
10 Warriors: dark lance, blaster,, sybarite 140
12 Wyches: haywires, hekatrix 154
12 Wyches: haywires, hekatrix 154

5 Scourges: 2 haywire blasters 130

Talos: chain-flails, haywire blaster 115
Talos: chain-flails, haywire blaster 115
Talos: chain-flails, haywire blaster 115


Total: 1999
Models: 101


Anyone else fancy this kind of builds? Remember i am not going to a tournament with it.

I have to be honest, I personaly do not like footslogging DE.

However, I'm intersested to see how we can make it work so here's my $0.02


Loose that 20 man Warrior Unit. With the points, get a 2nd Haemie with Webway and give them both Wracks to help escort the portal. After the portal is down, the Wracks can walk back and hold obj's in your DZ.

Swap the Trueborn DL's to 4 Blasters. When the TB walk out of the portal, they can shoot at the first piece of AV they see. Look for cover for these guys before deploying the portal.

I like full squads of 15 Wyches running out of the portal, thumbs up for the grenades. Your main targets should be any non tranport (Dreadnoughts/Tanks etc). Try to add in a Shardnet/Impaler into both squads, for the Dreadnought factor.


So coming out of the portal we have 2 TB, Harlies, 2 Wyches, Scourge unit (or can Deepstrike) and 3 Talos, pretty much most of the AT. So starting on the board will be 3 Warrior Squads w/ a DL each. I'd be looking to position these guys close to each other and with all 3 DL's pointing at the same target. Play them like a Ravager......making them a 4th HS choice. Also, when those bikes, DP's, Dreadknights or any tought unit that gets loose, splinter them to death.

Hey there.

Thanks for the advice but i disagree with you on several points.

To begin with the Trueborns. What you lack in footslogging dark eldar is long range anti tank. Blasters are fine and all but suicide units is the last thing you need when coming out of a WWP. I am not sure if you have played some footsloggers with DE?

Usually i run wwp lists that has focused on just that, coming out of the webway. This list however is focusing on deploying a large majority of the force and just keeping a smaller portion of the list in the webway.

The 20 man strong squad is to have a second way to deploy the portal if i need to put the Harlequins in reserve. You can't rely on a 10 men strong squad to do this work, if your opponent wants he will just shoot that unit into pieces.

The Wyches. Why run 15? 12 is what you need to have a new step of losing models before morale check. So it is the perfect number unless you somehow want to run 3 Wych weapons. I am not a big fan of Wych Weapons anymore. There are often better to purchase another model, in many ways. Wych units are best at being cheap, no need to go over the top on this kind of a unit.

Using warriors as a Ravager feels a bit odd to. You will have to seek cover for your troops and line them up to not be multiple charged from stronger units etc. Keeping them close together is probably the opposite of what you want here.

Back to the wwp. Out of the wwp will 3 taloses and 2 unit wyches come. Therefore we have just a single one here. In some games only Wyches might deploy this way, if the Talos has the terrain it needs to still survive and be a threat.

The key is having options Smile
