I'm new here on the Dark City and a relatively new DE Player. I've had 5 games in my Meta with DE won 3 lost 2.
This list is too try to address the losses and build on strengths so far.
2 x 10 Warriors in raiders with Lance, Nightshields, Splinter Racks
2 x 5 Warriors in Venoms with 2 SC, Nightshields, Blaster
1 x 5 Wyches in Venom with 2 SC, Nightshields, HWG
2 x Ravagers with Lances, Nightshields
1 x Razorwing with Lances, Flickerfield
5 Beast Masters
6 RW Flocks
My local game club is running a league as of 31st of May 2013. 1000 point fixed, 500 changeable with next opponent hidden so no list tailoring.
Any advise appreciated.
My 5 games was 3 wins all hard fought, 2 losses. One was close the other i had to hide 3 remaining warriors out of LOS to avoid the humiliation of being tabled.
In my previous list I had no beasts and baron. Had instead 10 Wyches with Aegis (the idea being to give them cover and counter assault capability).Also, take the wyches out of the Venom, put back in a Blaster Archon with 4 blasterborn. That's my previous list.
The reason for changes is based on the blaster born and Archon did very little for alot of points and the Aegis did nothing except make me try too turtle my entire force around it, too drop flyers.
In my losses I got owned by a helldrake, and 3 nightscythes dropping immortals on me.
I reasoned anti-flyer doesn't work. This new list is fast, I hope to be under flyers after they give me a round of pain, then ignore them.
Any thoughts and critique? Also beasts seem contravertial. For people who have used them (not just read the possible mathhammer) have you had success?
