DE: Updated list and BFG:A2

Still my favorite meme.

Hell, it has been a busy year for me.  Still enjoying playing my Dark Eldar whenever I can, but too busy to attend any events which has been a big bummer for me.  Well, where do we begin? Drukhari are still doing good, but dropped off the top tables once people knew how to to deal with them. Should this be a surprise to anyone?  Not really.  People just need time to adapt and even the Meat Mountain lists have been taking a backseat because Imperial Knights and other shenanigans have been setting the meta.  This is what happens with every new book and that's that people will take time to adapt, figure out the counters and then actively employ them in mass depending on what the meta is.  Either way, I've been getting in a few casual games with my local playgroup when I can but have been primarily out of the competitive circuit this year because of real life.

Don't worry though, I'm still getting my fill of active competitive Dark Eldar players whispering all the good stuff in my ear.  It's one thing to stay active in the meta and the other to keep updated.  The only thing that dulls over time is experience, but active play can always pick that back up.  If there's one piece of advice I can give you folks is to stay updated, even if you can't play so when you do jump back into the fray, you're not behind and know what to look out for.

With that said, my other minor update is to let you guys know that I'll be playing our faction on Battlefleet Gothic Armada 2 and streaming it!  Yes, lol, I also stream.  I was a big player back in the original BFGA1 days but balance kind of ruined it for me.  Thankfully, balance will be a big focus in the second game (hell it better be, all 12 factions!) and the game looks primed for MP success.  Well, success in the sense that it's still a pretty niche market, but it looks to be much more polished overall.  I'll be playing all 3 Eldar factions but you guys know which one I'll be flexing first!

Oh yes, and here's my pure Kabal list that's been doing well, even against some of the new Knights.  I haven't really played against the new Orks though, and from what I hear, that might be rough.

Flayed Skull Wing +1 CP

Firepower Analysis:
15 Dissies at BS3+
6 Dark Lances at BS3+
8 Blasters at BS3+
3 Blasters at BS2+
3 Razorwing Missiles at BS3+
48 Splinters at BS3+

I changed the Razorwings to Flayed Skull just to try them and so far they've been pretty decent.  They normally fly as Black Heart, but I really like their Strategem and the Ignore Cover is pretty big.  With the upcoming changes to Prepared Positions and rumors about more Cover systems, I'm going to be looking at Flayed Skull much more closely.
