Hey guys I'm a new dark eldar player and I need some help building my army. I'm going to be playing mainly against Imperial Guard Armies. They are going to have lots of tanks. If anyone could suggest which units are a must and which I should avoid for my list, that would be much appreciated. Thanks so much!

Imperial guard are an hard matchup for us. We really struggle against armour and high firepower like that.

The best unit to take IG are beasts, if those beasts get in to his parking lot they are in big problems. But ususaly they are shot to pieces long before that.

I would suggest
a) Vect, because you cant afford NOT to start.
b) 3 Ravagers with Dark lances
c) A beast group accompanied with Baron Sathonyx

Thinks that might work
Reavers (I am not a fan of them, but I imagine they can do some hurt when played correctly)
Eldar allies

Things to avoid:
Slow moving units
Coven units

Hope this helps, good luck Smile

Also on another note, should I take kabalite warriors? And if so what weapon should I take with them a splinter cannon or a dark lance?

Neither, warriors are fragile troops who will die fast. Well all our troops are, and if you go warriors, then blaster or nothing.

And put them in a veichle.

If you're looking for general information about how various DE units/models function in game, I'd suggest browsing through the tactics section of this site. If you're looking for an army list to help you decide what models to buy, I'd first define exactly what points level you'd normally be playing at, then you can find several example lists here in this section of the site. Find one you like the sound/look of, and run with it.

We can give advice on building/tweaking lists here, but most people won't scratch-build you a custom list.

Take what you like to play is usually a good place to start. And then build on efficiency from there. 5 Warriors with a Blaster in either Raider or Venom is good. Also, 5 Wyches with Haywire grenades, again in either Raider or Venom works well too, but require completely different styles and army builds to function properly

I keep seeing a lot of hate for Vects ride, but I've used a number of times at 2000 points to great success. Our opponents aren't used to seeing it and will waste firepower that can destroy our normal transports on the dias. The look on their face when you tell them armour 13 is priceless. Under 2000 I wouldn't field it, but its one of the few tricks we have that still works
