I am participating (and hosting) in a big ass apocalypse game this summer. Last time 18 players participated with 110.000 pts, with a very differentiated show of armies. My question to you guys, is what to bring and what tactics to use. First I will describe a bit of what I have in my collection and how I use to play.
Last year my list was something like this:
6000 pt Dark Eldar
Splinter Raid Force: 1 archon with incubi in raider, 4 x raiders with 10 warriors with DL and blaster
3 x 4 Reavers, with heat lances
Razorwing Sickle squadron: 3 x Razorwing: 4 x shatterfield missiles,FF,NS
venom: 4 truborn with blasters
venom: 1 haemonculus with webway portal
3 x talos pain engine
1 x cronos pain engine with spirit vortes
succubus with blood brides
2 x 9 wyches with Haywire grenades, hydra gauntlets and Lelith Hesperax
Beastmaster and pets with Baron Sathonyx
12 x Hellions
Titan Hunters: 6 x Ravagers with DL,FF,NS
Urien Rakarth with 3 grotesques.
Duke Sliscus with 10 trueborn and 2 splinter cannons
10 x mandrakes with Kheradruakh (he deployed near them turn 2, and they joined him)
Last year the splinter raid force came in behind enemy lines near the main objective, and started firing away with DL,blasters, reaver heat lances and raider mounted DL against all the tanks rears, that worked pretty well as you might imagine! The heamonculus in venom moved 6" inches and he walked 6" toward enemy lines and deployed webway portal. Almost everything else deployed through the webway portal, turn 2 ready to charge the enemy front lines in turn 3. Ravagers and reaper hunted vehicles from turn 1. My asset was the one that introduces nightfigting, and i popped it turn 2.
So what do you guys think? Any good ideas for strategies?
