Newbie question here --

I've been pretty lucky with getting first turn night with my new and thriving Dark Eldar army. I was wondering how more veteran players take advantage of night fighting if it shows up at the endgame. Do you play youer first few turns differently (like grabbing objectives earlier, knowiing we'll have an advantage defending them in the dark) or are there so many variables that you just wait and see how things look if and when darkness falls?

I tend to run a Venom-Raider-Ravager MSU army with the Duke in a Raider gunboat, teaming wyches with AI fire support. Fast attack is almost always Reavers, unless I'm worried about facing a bunch of specialized AV 14, then it's haywire blaster Scourges/haywire grenade wych teams.

Thanks.

For me it's suck it and see. In most cases it makes us much more durable at range but given how glass hammer like we are, by turn 5 I find its all over one way or the other so it's never been a big deal

If you like going second night fight on first turn reduces incoming fire, night fight on the last turn makes contesting units like reaver very hard to deal with. 2+ cover save and FNP against all shooting from 12" or more away, yes please. Very Happy
