500 point DE

Is it worth trying a 500 point DE force, and if so what are the MUST HAVE units?

Cheers, Hurons_Champion

Well here is a 500 point list I am running for a league at my FLGS.

5x Warriors-60
Venom w SC-65

5x Warriors-60
Venom w SC-65

5x Wyches-60
haywire grenades
Venom w SC-65

5x Wyches-60
haywire grenades
Venom w SC-65

This is 4 troops, 48 poison shots at long range (avg 16 inflicted wounds per turn), 2 S8 ap2 shots at 18" range, and 16 close range poison shots. There are also haywire grenade wyches that will on an average turn of assaulting a vehicle, kill it.

To summarize, this is 2 suicide vehicle destroyers/ fire attractors, and a whole bunch of AI. This lists has its weaknesses but is a good example of what one needs to start a 500 point force.

1. Troops ( i recommend warriors)
2. Transports ( raiders or venoms to taste)
3. HQ (at my FLGS not required below 1000) ( archon or succubus)

~ 5000 points of space marines and almost 3000 points of dark eldar

I would prefer this list. I never really like the idea of not using the regular FOC in 500pts games.

1x Hameo 50

5x Warriors, Blaster, Venom, 2x SC 125
5x Warriors, Blaster, Venom, 2x SC 125
3x Wracks, Venom, 2x SC 95

Ravager, 3x DL 105
--> 500

Really love this list and never lost a game with it

Check out my German 40k Blog!!
