PostSubject: Asdrubael Vect Questions   Asdrubael Vect Questions I_icon_minitimeTue Jan 22 2013, 05:29

Hey guys, I have not yet started an army, I am debating between Dark Eldar Raiders with Vect or Ravenwing and I had some questions about the Dais of Destruction

The dais of destruction was the first model that got my attention, it was also my favorite unit in the Warhammer 40k RTS Dawn of War Soulstorm and I want to see if it is possible to use it pretty much every game, I know it is ridiculously expensive.

In the rules it says there must be 9 models in the dais in addition to Vect I dont really understand the rules for dedicated transports and IC's joining units but would it be possible for example to have Vect, 4 Incubi, then 5 Warriors on the dais?

Information about Asdrubael and the Dais's rules and any advice for army lists would be greatly appreciated, again, I know it is absurdly expensive in terms of points, but it is that damn cool, and i must use it if im gonna play DE Smile

Here's my first draft of a list using him at the lowest point cost he can fit in

1018 pts

Asdrubael Vect
+ Dais of Destruction
4 Incubi
5 Warriors

Raider
Splinter Racks
10 warriors
Splinter Cannon

Raider
Splinter Racks
10 warriors

Only one unit and any IC's attached to it may ride in a vehicle. Vect has to start the game with 9 models in the Dais. IMHO, the Dais is suboptimal at best for the following reasons:
1. Does not have Aerial Assault
2. Does not have access to vehicle upgrades.
3. Vect+Dais=460pts affraid
I'll stop there Razz

honestly taking vect and NOT taking the Dias is the best way to have him and you save a huge amount of points Smile

That answers one question that I had as well as the book states that the Dias is "otherwise just like a raider" so I wasn't sure if that meant you could upgrade it like a raider or not...

If you could upgrade it like a raider (night shields/whatever...) I don't think it overpowers it given the points already sunk into it but I just wasn't sure given the way it read...

For the points that thing costs it should have most of the upgrades already!

Take vect with 5 incubi in a venom they will mow through most units you put them into, I take vect regularly he is so much fun to play. But the Dias is a massive points sink i would rather take a tantalus for less points!
