Hi!
I've been playing Dark Eldar for a while now but I've never even glanced at something like a coven list. For me Wracks, Grotts, Talos and Cronos are units that looks neat but I havn't fielded a sigle one of them =/
Well it's about to change. I got a friendly game coming up this week end and I think it's time to unleash the coven wrath =)

Urien Rakarth 190

Haemonculus: venom blade; flesh gauntlet; shattershard. 90

4 Grotesques: Aberration; liquifier gun. 265
• Raider: enhanced aethersails; night shields; flickerfield.

10 Wyches: Hekatrix (venom blade); haywire grenades. 220
• Raider: enhanced aethersails; night shields; flickerfield.

9 Wracks: Acothyst (venom blade); liquifier gun. 200
• Raider: enhanced aethersails; night shields; flickerfield.

5 Kabalite Warriors: blaster. 135
• Venom: splinter cannon; night shields.

5 Kabalite Warriors: blaster. 135
• Venom: splinter cannon; night shields.

5 Scourges: 2× haywire blaster. 130

5 Scourges: 2× haywire blaster. 130

Talos Pain Engine: chain-flails; additional close combat weapon. 115

Talos Pain Engine: chain-flails; additional close combat weapon. 115

Ravager: night shields; flickerfield. 125
1 850 points

- Urien goes with the 4 grotts in their Raider.
- The haemonculi might start with the Wracks (this is where I've made room for him) but depending on Uriens pain token roll and the Wyches combat roll he might begin the game with the Wyches outside their Raider for some pain token shuffling.
- Is the Talos (Taloi??) decent equipped?
Other than that the rest of the list is kinda straight forward. I'm not to impressed of Scourges but I figured I had to give them a real chance =)

Im going up against Chaos space marines with allies of some sort, either IG or Deamons.
My biggest concern is that he MIGHT bring a Hell drake, he is not that fond of flyers but that thing is a beast and I wouldn't be surprised if he fell for the temptation. Is there any good ways to bring some decent anti air into the list? Leave the Ravager at home and bring a ADL with a quid gun??

Cheers!

that looks like fun, this should work, and no defence line! Ravager will do much better unless your opponent brings heldrakes... then ADL will work

Thanks=)
The ADL it self is no good against the drake but the quad gun might be, =)
I might be able to fiend enough points to replace the Ravager with a Jet fighter. The list loses one dark lance but gains both some anti infantry and anti air... Is this a good deal?

My understanding was that, because chain-flails are a special weapon, it can't get +1 A for an extra CCW.

Codex says "Special close combat weapon" so it is also a ccw. I'd grant the extra attack.

And yes the quadgun helps against Drakes. I'd even take icarus for that purpose and use some BS5 or better shooter.
