Hi, all!

So, a new game store opened near my place. I've been taking my chaos to RTTs lately, so I thought I'd change it up a little. Here are my dark eldar at 1750 points

Asdrubael Vect
Lady Malys
5 Incubi with Klaivex, venom with 2 scannons
3 Trueborn with 2 scannons, venom with 2 scannons
9 Wyches with hydra gauntlets, haywire grenades, Hekatrix with Agonizer, Raider with FF, Grisly trophies
8 Wyches with hydra gauntlets, haywire grenades, Hekatrix with Agonizer, Raider with FF, Grisly trophies
5 Warriors with blaster, venom with 2 scannons
5 warriors with blaster, venom with 2 scannons
Ravager with 3 Dark lances, flickerfield
Ravager with 3 Dark lances, flickerfield
Voidraven with flickerfield

Total: 1,750 points

Now, there are some choices in there that a lot of people don't usually take. I will explain the uses of these units:

Malys:

I really like what she adds to the army. She's a little bit of a shocker to a lot of people, with her redeployment. Often during dawn of war i will deploy Vect and some wyches in a raider as far up as possible, and hoping to kill him early, the enemy will deploy a couple of razorbacks or something, then I can pull him back to come on turn 1, and then kill the razors with ravagers, all while cackling maniacally, of course. Also, 8 power weapon attacks are not to be sniffed at.

Vect:

He is my sledgehammer, honestly. He is possibly the best pure assault character in the game, even topping Mephiston I think. He will rip through MEQs and HQs like nothing. But be careful he doesn't get gang-tackled, because once that shadowfield goes down, Vect will soon follow.

Incubi w/ out grenade support:

A lot of people will use these guys as a spearhead unit, to just bash face, with an archon with a PGL, of course. However, I use them differently, and very effectively. See, I usually keep my venoms in a fleet, very tightly packed, all shooting at the same 1-2 targets. The downside to this is that a lot of the time, people will multiple assault and beat up my poor paper airplanes. The Incubi are there to dissuade such units from attempting such moves. Also, if there's a tactical squad out of cover, they are the perfect unit to handle them.

Voidraven:

The Strength 9 lances are really useful to pop dreadnoughts. I also like to point out that it is the most durable vehicle in the Dark Eldar army!

Now as to the whole army, there is one thing you probably noticed: A lack of anti-tank. That is true, however, I've found that if you just kill or suppress a few key vehicles per turn, you're okay. Also, people will often use their ravagers to shoot a tactical squad. What i do is if there are no vehicles or monsters in line of sight, i will just turbo boost for the 4+ cover, or behind terrain, etc.

What do all of you think? Open to critics, still only wednesday!

I think its a good list. I don't think you lack anti-tank with having eight Dark Lances on four different vehicles, two Void Lances, and two blasters I think you are good with anti-tank.

Not a bad list persay, my biggest problem is A: Too many points in HQ, and B: Not enough troops. 4 Troops would not make it long in most games I play (maybe your meta is different) so that is something I would look into changing.

Also you already are taking Vect, which while good, he is a ton of points. Malys on top of Vect and now your just wasting so many points there. Think about it. for 10 more points than Vects cost you have 2 more 5 man warrior squads w/ blaster in dual cannon venom... Is Vect worth the 24 cannon shots, 2 blasters, and scoring to your battle plan??? same with Malys. Personally I would pick one and use them, leaving the other home for more troops

I'm going to agree with Shadows. That is an awful lot of points in HQ. But, if it works, run with it.

I'm a fan of the trueborn scannon in a venom. I like throwing out 24 shots if the venom doesn't move. kudos on that one.
