I want to make an army that is faster than hell, (well at least as fast as dark eldar can get.)

What should I buy to make this army? I have no dark eldar, not even a codex, so be gentle with your responses

Buy a codex! Laughing

Everything mounted will make it fast for sure - raider/ravagers with enahced sails, both flyers... all very fast

A codex naturally =_).

Pretty much any mechanised force will move as you described. One of the Fastest things out there is Reavers and Razorwings Jetfighters. But still - look at first forums and dig this forum for Thors article on DE tactics.

And anyway - most of DE things moves at 2 speeds -
1)Extremely Fast
2)What the hell was that?

Yes, codex first!

The average venom spam list is very fast, no special news there. Of course, stay away from coven type units however I find the scourges can be fast (but not as fast as reavers).

Just about any of the wychy untis are fast enough.

My fastest unit that has blown me away with their speed was:

I charged a squad ratlings with Hellions that infiltrated just outside my deployment zone. Killed them in one turn and consolidated towards the enemy deployment zone but only as far as cover would allow me. I was then charged by a squadron of sentinels, lost 1 Hellion and Hit & Ran 11" to just past the midway line. In my turn I moved 12", fleeted for 5" and charged into cover for another 5" and ended within 1 " of my opponents board edge charging his command squad.

Granted they need the conditions to do a Hit & Run but when you can charge something near your deployment zone in one turn and in the very next turn charge another target in your opponents deployment zone with the very same unit I thought that was pretty fast.

However, I am not going to recommend Hellions to new players, they are very fragile and are not of the meta of most DE players.

First: Codex, then: Reaver Jetbikes

Not the best unit out there but I dare you to find something faster

Fastest things in the book:

1) Reavers (jetbikes), Razorwings (skimmers) and Voidravens (skimmers) can all go 36" when moving flat out or turbo boosting.

2) Raiders/Ravagers with Enhanced Aethersails can go 26"-32" (you roll 2D6) when going Flat Out.

3) Pretty much everything else goes 24" in a turn.

The only things that can be changed to Troops are:

Hellions (requires Baron Sathonyx special HQ character)
Wracks (requires Urien Rakarth special HQ character or a generic Haemonculus HQ)

Sounds like Codex + Battleforce is the way to go... get both Wyches and Reavers! Idea

Yep, the battleforce is an excellent starting point for any DE army. Two battleforces are even better Wink
