Since GW was so kind as to beat all our assault units to death with the nerf bat I have been ranging between cynical criticism and outright nerd rage("why does a paper plane exploding produce the same explosion inside that a Land Raider does when it blows up? Who cares! As long as the marines are happy!!"......i'm not bitter).

Anyways here is my new 2k list cause they don't want us killing anything in CC.


Archon
-Blaster
-G. Plate
x2

Blasterborn w/Venom x3

5 Warriors w/ blaster in Venom x4

10 Warriors w/ S.C.&Blaster in Raider w/racksx2

Ravagerx3

2004 pts

Dark Lances on everything that can take em cause thats how you shoot em good and frak proper. Night Shields on everything cause Dark Eldar on the table on closer then they appear.

Thnx for reading my raging guys =) but seriously what do you think of the list?

Are you in Archer "full rampage mode"? Razz

The list looks solid and reliable: 6 troops, lots of AI, obligatory Ravagers and min Blasterborn. I wouldn't give up on our CC troops. I use 2-3 Wyche units with great success(won a tournament last weekend with this setup). This list should be effective and efficient, if a little one dimensional.

It's just really annoying when i'm used to charging Tau and they exploded like balloon's and now they kill 3/4 of my unit on overwatch. Don't even get me started are charging thing with tesla....

Do you take your wyches in Raiders or Venoms? HWGs are amazing but outside of a 5 man suicide squad of HWG wyches I cant find much use for the gals anymore.

I start every list with 2 units of 7+Hekatrix/agonizer, shardnet/impaler, raider with a flickerfield(206 ea) I add a 5 man unit with HWG in a venom in games over 1750pts if I haven't filled the slot with Wracks. I find that Wyches need to have the unit that they are charging softened up a bit. The small Kabalite units in venoms that you listed are perfect to use in tandem with the ladies. I find that this is the adjustment that keeps DE effective in 6th. Remember, Wyches are still great tarpits. I tied up a unit of Terminators in cc for three turns in my last tournament. Give the supporting unit tactic a shot, I think that you'll find love for the DE in close combat again Twisted Evil

But the Haywire is so good! In two games against Tau tonight, all of the meaningful vehicle damage was inflicted by Wych squads, with my two Ravagers barely managing a single Hull Point! Once the Wyches cleaned up the flying Fish, the Ravs got put on Crisis sniping duty.

I would recommend you give Haywire Wyches a try. Just gotta set it up so they minimize the return fire, but that's the same for Blasterborn, and Haywire is almost a guaranteed kill.

Oops, I forgot to add that my larger Wyche units have HWG's also. Don't leave home without them! Ask the two dreadnaughts that my opponent drop pod in my deployment zone last game how getting charged by Wyches worked out for them Razz

My 2 cents:

Played Archon with blaster, and it sucks -- not because of the shooting, but because of the "Slay the warlord" - this way, he will be exposed in a weak unit very close to the enemy.

better yet: latex thongs Smile

on topic: at first i was to go back to my old gunboat-sliscus army, but then i "SOULS FOR COMMORRAGH!"-d, and stayed with my list, just swapped the voidravens to dissiwing jetfighters.
1 archon, 3 haems, 7 incubi, 16 wyches, 2 heka, these in raiders, 5 warriors with blaster, thems in venom with dual, 2 dwjf Smile 1.5k and it kills. In higher points, i add 1 klaivex to the incu, 2 unites of wyches in venoms, and/or a nother dwjf.

If i am allowed to use dual detachments, the 1.5k list*2 and dual flanke-denial and eat-it-up.
