Rounding Out the Army Empty
PostSubject: Rounding Out the Army   Rounding Out the Army I_icon_minitimeThu May 29 2014, 21:08

Hearing about the new battleforged army rule for 7th edition, I set about writing a list that would include smaller squads of bloodbrides over full squads of wyches. I'm not very good at making lists, but here is what I have so far. Besides the models for the list described, I could field a Succubus, a unit of 10 mandrakes (I have the really old models) and I have 13 more wyche models. What could I do to round out the army a bit and/or rearrange things to have as competitive a force as possible? I realize what I have now is definitely not a competitive list, but I am not a competitive player, I just don't to lose to everybody I come across. I play to have fun, but I'd like at least a fair chance at winning. Thanks for the criticism in advance, and here's the list:

Dark Eldar List 1

Archon - Huskblade, soultrap, shadowfield - 135

Trueborn (3) - 2 Darklances - 86

Bloodbrides (6) - Syren, Power weapon, Haywire Grenades - 110

Dedicated Raider - 60

Bloodbrides (5) - Syren, Power weapon, Haywire Grenades - 95

Dedicated Venom - Extra Splinter Cannon - 65

Wyches (5) (Joined by Archon) - Haywire Grenades - 60

Dedicated Raider - 60

Kabalite Warriors (9) - Blaster - 96

Dedicated Raider - Splinter Racks, Nightshields - 80

Kabalite Warriors (9) - Blaster - 96

Dedicated Raider - Splinter Racks, Nightshields - 80

Razorwing Jetfighter - Nightshields - 155

Ravager - Nightshields - 115

Ravager - Nightshields - 115

Total 1408


Thanks again for all the help Very Happy

So a few things I'm seeing here.
First it looks like you are running those true borns on foot. I think the points could be put into 3 blaster born for a mobile at and some ai from the venom.
Second maybe drop one wyche from that squad so they and the archon can fit into a venom with 2sc instead of a raider, this will provide more AI.

Why not use incubi, instead of bloodbribes? Costly, sure, but effective. They need a pgl, though...

Thanks for the feedback Zenotaph!

So a cheap way I could completely change the list would be to buy one more venom, and run a list built around 4 suicide wyche squads taking out tanks, freeing up points for Trueborn!  Here it is, I know this is a step in a totally different direction, but hopefully it's in the right direction.

Dark Eldar Army 2.0

Duke Sliscus -                150

Kaballite Trueborn (9) - 9 Shardcarbines - 153

Dedicated Raider - Nightshields -          70

Kaballite Trueborn (10) - 4 Blasters, 6 Shardcarbines - 210

Dedicated Raider - Nightshields -  70

Wyches (5) - Haywire Grenades -  60

Dedicated Raider -          60

Wyches (5) - Haywire Grenades -  60

Dedicated Raider -          60

Wyches (5) - Haywire Grenades -  60

Dedicated Venom - Splinter Cannon -          65

Wyches (5) - Haywire Grenades -  60

Dedicated Venom -          55

Ravager -                105

Ravager -                105

Razorwing Jetfighter - Nightshields - 155

Total                      1498

And Zenotaph, the main reason why I'm not using Incubi (for now, anyway) is because I don't own any models, and I don't want to buy them. I'm on a student budget which keeps on dwindling and not replenishing, the new Venom at $30 is pushing it already. Thanks again though!
