By no means do I consider myself any sort of expert gamer as I have only played a half dozen games or so with my DE at 1,000 points.

My list has been like this every time:


Hamonculus, Liquifier Gun, Venom Blade – 65
4 Blasterborn, Venom, Splinter Cannon – 173
10 Warriors, Blaster, Splinter Cannon, Raider, Flickerfield, Grisly Trophies – 190
5 Warriors, Blaster, Venom, Splinter Cannon, Grisly Trophies – 130
9 Wyches, Shardnet and Impaler, Hekatrix, Agoniser, Raider, Flickerfield, Shock Prow, Grisly Trophies – 210

Ravager, Flickerfield – 115
Ravager, Flickerfield – 115

Total: 998

Except for one game against Tyranids with a whole mess of monstrous creatures I used disintegrator cannons. I should also mention that all of my games have been against either 'nids or IG. The IG player is new to both his army and the game, so I generally tear through him pretty well (except for last night). The 'nid player is a more experienced player than me and has a lot of experience with his army, and every game we play is close. I think we have a fairly even split between each other.

Last night, the IG player and I had a pretty good game. Pitched battle deployment with KP's. It was pretty much back and forth the whole game until I managed to pop the chimera his company command squad was in and assaulted them so I could stop eating plasma in the face. I digress.

The common theme in each of my games has been the more aggressively I use the Wyches, the more damage they do. The warriors have never really done a whole hell of a lot. I generally want to stay away from the idea of tailoring my lists to particular opponents, but it seems to me like wyches can be downright mean, especially once they get a pain token or two. So, how viable are wych heavy lists when considering all possible opponents?

Another question I have is about how to deal with monstrous creatures. It seems like disintegrator cannons certainly can get the job done. Would it be equally/more/less effective to just dump loads of poison into them?

I'm working at getting all 1,000 points painted before I expand or start playing games at shops with a larger variety of opponents. That and I'm at school right now so I don't have access to other opponents really other than perhaps and Eldar player if he ever gets some free time.

So far, the only things I really struggle with are vehicles and monstrous creatures.

So, thoughts? Tips? Bacon?

DE should always laugh at monstrous creatures, if not then you dont have enough poison in your list. Venoms with double splinter cannons should down them quickly.

As for vehicles, Ravagers and blaster born (again in a venom) should do the trick.

Wyches are good, I run 40 of them in raiders. You just need an agonizer or power weapon in there to deal with MEQ, and then decide on either haywire grenades or a blast pistol to deal with emergency vehicle hunting. But other units should be opening the cans so they can get to the insides.

Every DE player should also have a razorwing, for the shameless reason of it being a super cool model.

Good advise from Levitas. Use your warriors more aggressively, too. In a pinch, a Warrior squad can make a decent tarpit unit. Their real strength is there Poisoned Weapons though, get them into cover, with good lines of sight and concentrate your fire on one target at a time.
