I typically play CSMs but I've always liked Dark Eldar too, they seem alot like chaos. I want all of you guys to try to think of the best small Dark Eldar Army you can. I'm thinking somehting around 200 points. maybe some incubi or some reavers. I NEED HELP! Happy Gaming!:biggrin::biggrin::mrgreen:

200 isn't much... For the minimum size FoC, I'd take an Archon and 2 full sized warrior squads. Take full Dark Lances in each unit and combat drugs and whatever weapon you like for the HQ.

Hope that helps a little. I'm new to DE, but that's my advice.

Archons, IMO are too expensive for low points games. Here are some lists for DE at 500 points.

List #1
Haemonculus, Stinger, Scissorhand 35
20 Warriors, 2x Lances 180
15 Warriors, 2x Lances 180
15 Warriors, 2x Lances 100
Total: 495

List #2:
Haemonculus, Stinger, Scissorhand 35
Haemonculus, Stinger, Scissorhand, Shadowfield 60
5 Warriors, Cannon, Raider 105
5 Warriors, Cannon, Raider 105
Ravager 105
Ravager 105
Total: 510(if your opponent won't let you go over, take out the Shadowfield and add in some upgrades to the Warriors or Ravagers.)

List #3:
Haemonculus, Stinger, Scissorhand, Webway Portal 85
6 Warriors, Cannon, Raider 113
10 Warriors, 2x Lances, 100
Talos, 100
Talos, 100
Total: 498

These can all be modified in many ways, but that's pretty close to how I would run them.

Incubi and Reavers both have no place in low points games, they cost far too much. Also, a warning, Dark Eldar are nothing like Chaos, and suggesting they are offends many players.

I wasn't going to mention it, but yeah, that steams a lot of people. Another word of warning: if you play your DE like your CSM, you will die. DE have rice-paper armour and T3.

Your warriors will need dark lances instead of cannons for that all importatn AV popping capability. Then again at 500-600 pts you problerly wont need them, it looks like a good list overall. Use the 2 Taloses in conjunction with each other and they will do fine as a unit. Hope that helps and happy gaming. Also i think you must have 10 warriors in a unit, but dont quote me on that.

I dont see how this list works together at all. Explain your plan with this list and how your units work together.

For starters, please pick a points value and stck to it? How can we 'help' if you keep changing the points value?

Lets start at 500. As it's a nice starting points value.
This is My 500 point list. Tried and tested over 10 or so years. Very competitive. Very dangerous.

Dracon
-Poisoned Blade
-Splinter Pistol
-Shadow Field
= 56

Raider Squad
6 man
- Raider
= 103

Raider Squad
7 man
- Raider
= 111

Ravager
3 Disintegrators
Meant to be 3 Dark lances
= 115

Ravager
3 Disintegrators
Meant to be 3 Dark lances
= 115

Total = 500

I'm not allowed to use this list at my local club, they are that sick of it.
If you want a real list. Use one of mine.

Idiot mistakes corrected in purple.

That works at 500 points.

If you're certain you want Haemonuculi:

Haemonculi, Destructor, Scissorhands, Shadowfield: 73

Raider squad x8, +1 Sybarite, Poison Blades, Blaster, Cannon: 153
Raider squad x9, +1 Sybarite, Poison Blades, Blaster, Cannon: 161

Ravager, 2 dissy, 1 lance: 115

Though I think a 3dissy is 120, Orochi.

Orochi will criticize immediately for the dual-use Ravager, but he already put the good list together, what can I do? :)

Yes, yes, we know we disagree on the utility of mixed-use Ravagers. But, hey, look at Vect. He's got one! Do you want to disagree with Vect? Hmmmm? ;)

I might just trythat list of yours orochi! and by the way, my plan with the other list was to use the taloses in conjunction with the webway portal, and lance everything else to pieces!

Vect gets away with it as he has BS6.

But can you imagine how fucking awesome he'd be if he had either 3 Dizzies or 3 Lances?
