For any of you that remember any of my other posts, I usually try and build competitive DE armies to decimate opponents and win games. I don't aim for fluff, being "nice", or not being cheesy. I aim to win! Now that 6th edition has come around I am not quite experiences enough to power-game just yet, but I thought I would take a shot at it with you guys.
A few major changes that affect the way I play:
1. The role wyches play in my lists are not too different, although they lost some versatility. I usually use them for killing vehicles or holding up elites or strong troops, but they now are amazing at the first and terrible at the latter. With vehicles going down in overall strength and infantry being more viable I don't expect to be taking these as often.
2. Venoms don't seem as viable to me now because they only have 2 hull points, you pay for their flickerfields in their base cost ( flickerfields are no longer needed due to jink and the fact you will die to assaults due to new rules on assaulting vehicles). Instead of running MSU in venoms I think raiders may be seeing the field more.
3. Ravagers are still great, but the razor-wing jet-fighter is now much more viable than they used to be. HOWEVER, I will begin using a long forgotten unit in our codex...the Voidraven. The reason this wasnt used before was because of the increased cost of having to pay for missiles. However here are the reasons for using tthe voidraven in 6th: 1. Has the same AT capability as the ravager but in flier form, 2. For 40 more points than the razorwing you have the better AT capability AND better missiles, +1 Av on the razorwing, not open topped, and its a flier. I think in heavies voidravens may win in larger point games with ravagers only seeing the light of day in 1000 or less.
Hard C&C is strongly encourages, teh harder the better. If the end of your post isnt insulting my intelligence you posted incorrectly.
Archon-115 ( probably with tactical traits, but possibly warlord)
7x Incubi-154 ( archon here, I felt as though these were needed in case I hold up units with the wyches anyways as backup)
Hekatrix w agoniser
raider NS Shock prow-75
10x Wyches-150 (I used to get haemonculi, but now im not going to bother)
Hekatrix w agoniser
Raider NS Shock prow-75
Raider NS Racks-80
Raider NS racks-80
4x Shatterfield missiles ( good against infantry, and can be used in synergy with lances against vehicles because of S7)
4x Shatterfield missiles
So my wyches and voidravens primary job is AT, but both are more than capable of infantry. My warriors are obviously suited for AI, but can take care of AV. The incubi are there because I was tired when making this list and probably wasn't thinking straight. This is a first draft, and will be revised several times in this thread to just get some people beginning to think how this new system will affect DE lists.
