Hello!
New guy here,I'm drawn to Dark Eldar lately and I'm planning to expand my 40k collection with Dark Eldars,currently I'm playing Eldars and I know quite about the fluff and background of both of these guys! So after flipping the Dark Eldar codex,I got interested in playing a haemonculus army,cause I like to play themed army like my Iyanden Eldars.For starting Dark Eldars what units or model do you recommend?


Thanks!

Generic Dark Eldar, you'd be looking at starting off with an Archon and some Warriors, perhaps some Wyches.

If its a Haemonculus Coven you're looking at, your HQ will either be a bulk of Haemonculi, or possibly Urien Rakarth. Your main Troops choices though will be Wracks. From there you'll need to bulk out with Grotesques and Pain Engines (Talos and Chronos).

Either way, a vital part of any Dark Eldar army is its speed, so you'll need Raiders too.

Scourges can be a great addition to coven armies, normally cannons on them so they can always be moving and shooting to help get the rest of the army into combat. You liise a big chunk of your shooting phase with a themed coven. Also a ravager might help out.

If you like Grotesques, take Urien Rakarth in any list big enough to allow it points wise. That extra S comes in handy.
Liquifier guns are... occasionally infuriating, but usually great against large armies of weak dudes, like IG or hordey Tyranids. I've even torn through squads of Plague Marines with them before. Highly recommend.
Above all, make sure you can go fast. Gotta go fast. That means hella Raiders.
Also, people rip on Scourges, but I like them for a coven theme. You can make them look super twisted and weird, and a squad full of spinter cannon and shardcarbine makes light work of monsters and gets around pretty swiftly too.

I'd start small if you want to do a coven army. Something like a heam as your HQ. 2 engines, 3 units of wracks in transports and a unit of grots in a boat for a rough 1k list. Play around a bit with small lists then expand from there.

the best advice that i can give, is to use the models that you like in smart ways, this guide helps a ton doing that, as it gives a breakdown of almost every unit, listing pros and cons and common uses for the unit

i love grotesques, or grots around here, i use them in units of 4, this allows 2 models for my HQ to ride in the raider with aether sails. this cost a fair bit in terms of money and points but i never regret it
