Default TEWT #1 - Dark Eldar vs Grey Knights

GENERAL INTRODUCTION

Welcome all to our first 40k Tactical Exercise Without Table.

IN this TEWT you will be required to provide the "best chance for victory" solution for the tactical situation show below.

Solutions are to be PM'ed to me prior to 23:59Z (GMT/UTC) 1st August. All solutions will then be posted for comment and critique to determine the best solution.

Keep you assessments brief, dot points are best. Add in rule references for anything that is a bit odd, Page numbers etc make it MUCH easier for other readers to understand your rationale.

Also try to add in your expected reaction from the enemy player.

All diagrams are not correctly to scale but they are in proportion to an extent. You will be able to more or less determine ranges and Lines of Sight from the diagrams "within reason"; we won't be doing any "he's an 1/8 of an Inch out of range" crap

Post any questions you might have in this thread. In general I will only post an answer if it is something that cannot be determined from the information provided or something that only appears obvious in my strange little world.

If someone asks a question and you have the same question as them, post as well, if enough ppl ask then I'll provide a bit more info.

Remember too this is new ground, a work in progress and the process will no doubt grow as we go.

FINAL RESULTS

I've made some notes on a few things, mainly to do with rules. Very keen what others have to say.

This is more complicaed than I expected. But it should still be fun. I'll work on it tomorrow, after some rest.

The idea Scoze is to divine the answers to questions like that for the situation as presented and factor that into the solution.

Guess you'll need to address that in your solution.

So be it, next question and it is a very important one. Which DE units have tokens and how many do they have.


Edit: As the player of the game both my first question and this one would be known by the GK player BTW.

Ah yes forgot to add :

Combat Drugs Roll was a 3.

All Dark Eldar units that have killed Grey Knight units have themselves been eliminated.

The Grotesques started the game with an Haemonculus (Ancient) who was killed in the CC that caused them to fall back.
