Right so my Dad comes in from work, saying:

'Nick there's some of Tom's old warhammer in the car for you';

So naturally I'm like 'OH MY GOD', And it turns out theres alot of Dark Eldar!!

Now my problem is; It didn't come with a codex! So I'll wait for that...
So I have no idea what I now own, So i'm going to ask if someone could tot up roughly what models there are here; and how many points it would be (Obviously with no actual point costs)















Excuse the horrible paint jobs, Not done by me! I will fix them up, if i decide to use this army!

I love you random guy. :)

In truth most of those units are useless in battle. as there is no raiders and ravagers :)

However it's about 3k points methinks. roughly.

>.> Yay inherited an army worth of useless crappily painted models :]

I'm going to wait for the new codex, And if it's good, I'll play new DE with OOP models :')

Otherwise my friend said he'd take it, lol.

I'd do that. If not Just purchase a couple of raiders an your army is good to go. :) that kind of list can be pulled off, you just need epicz skillz. :)

I don't believe i have epic skills actually.

It's quite ironic, The one time i get a free 3000 Point army; It's my least favourite army, that I am told are completely useless.
Such is life, eh. :X

Yeah, I'll wait for that, If not, I'll eBay it, or give it to a mate. I Don't have the space for models I'm not using! Specially considering The Block in my room i keep my warhammer on, Is home to about 4500 points of Khorne, including the boxes AND it's my wardrobe, Lmao. :3

You're inherited army is pretty respectable- if you go out and buy at least 5 raiders and a few ravagers. These new units are meant to look much better in the new edition so as everyone else has said, just wait a couple months.

Alternatively, I notice 3 Talos. If you want to have a game with these Dark Eldar field;
all the talos
10 Warriors with 2 dark lances (I only saw two dark lances)
the rest of the Warriors as 10-20 men with 2 splinter cannons a squad,
maybe chuck in a mandrake squad and the warp beast squad
You'll have an army. It definitely won't be competitive, but is probably your best bet.
Good luck
