1850 Tournament this weekend

It's going to be quite sick.  I haven't played in a tournament for quite sometime because of this ridiculous OT.. but as of today, I'm done with that!  Not only is this going to be my first couple of games with Dark Eldar, but it's also going to be a tournament.  Hopefully my 4th Ed. Eldar-ish skills haven't worn out completely.

Here's the list I plan on using:

15 kp

Asdrubael Vect = 240
Succubus (Agonizer) = 85

9x Wyches (Raider FF/AS, Hekatrix/Agnoizer/PGL) = 205
9x Wyches (Raider FF/AS, Hekatrix/Agnoizer) = 195
10x Warriors (Raider NS, Blaster, SC) = 185
10x Warriors (Raider NS, Blaster, SC) = 185

5x Trueborn (Raider NS, 4x Blaster) = 190
5x Trueborn (Raider NS, 4x Blaster) = 190

Ravager (NS/FF) = 125
Ravager (NS/FF) = 125
Ravager (NS/FF) = 125

I will make another post Sunday or Monday night with the tournament results.  Tomorrow/Saturday night will consist of me putting together 3x Ravagers in preparation.  Go me!

PS - The picture has nothing to do with 40K, but the first person to tell me where that's from gets a cyber cookie.

Well you certainly seem to have your anti-tank capability well in hand HERO. My only question would be the lack of assault troops. Granted, Vect is a monster and him along with the squad of wyches is pretty serious, but it is unfortunately only one squad. The dais itself is pretty well protected from ranged shooting, but it's going to go up in smoke the first time a meltagun sneezes at it (dead on a 3+!!!) Having a drop pod or something land and take you down on the other side of the field is really going to ruin your day.

Not entirely sure what to do to change this, more just something to be aware of. Also, keep in mind that the Dais cannot go 12" and shoot everything like the ravagers. Easy thing to forget/overlook. I might be tempted to drop the Dais for a regular raider and throw some upgrades around (Flickerfields, Shardnet and PGL for the wyches, etc.) but that's about the only thing I can think of.

All in all, looks solid! Good luck and I look forward to pics/batreps when you take home the bacon!

HERO said...

Not enough assault units is indeed a problem with this list, but hopefully with good target priority and weight of fire I'll make something happen.

I might also drop the Dais for a unit of Wyches over Warriors and kite them out with weapons.

Mara Jade from Star Wars? just a guess from left field but redhead with 2 blaster lookinig things, first thing that came to mind

Sorrowshard said...

Other than the ravagers I really dont understand the night fields on everything ? as DE need to be up in your grille to do damage ?

The flicker fields will protect you from everything and in CC too, also had you considered any upgrades for the dais ? I would at very least opt for a flicker field ( a nightfield might actually be of use here as it limits melta range to 3" ) and maybe a shock prow/tormentors combo ? potential AV 16 ramming is too good to pass up :o)

Otherwise seems fairly solid ,are you going to playtest and tweak it before wheeling it out ?

Gauthic said...

Looks more like Jessica Rabbit from Star Wars...

The list does need a couple of Wych squads IMHO.

Gauthic said...

Having your few Wyches on foot is a waste, they'll be gunned down immediately by any moderately good shooting squad as an afterthought.

HERO said...

The Wyches here are going in the Dais with Vect.

Gauthic said...

Sorrowshard: "....also had you considered any upgrades for the dais"

I'm pretty sure that since there are no vehicle options listed in the Army List for the dias that it can not take any Vehicle Upgrades (as there are no point costs or options in the Character Upgrade) on page 82

However on page 55 (the description of the upgrade), it reads that it's otherwise treated as a raider and I'd assume that it would be able to take those upgrades. Hopefully this will be clarified soon.

I should have figured that with the number.. thanks HERO :)

Sorrowshard said...

Its a raider to all intents and purposes , I cannot for the life of me think why you should not get them , its fairly rubbish without , also , tormentor grenades stack nicely with Vects Orbs ;o)

Rathstar said...

As others have said I think 560 points in the same place (Vect, Dias & Wyches) is too much. It's such a risk that the dias goes down early.

Also the Dias seems odd to me, it's a ravager that can't fire all it's weapons if it moves 12", yet it wants to be transport to get Vect and his squad into combat which is going to put it in range of melta weapons (almost making a mockery of it's better armour).

The rest of the list is fine, I'm looking forward to hearing how you do.

Good Luck for the tournament.


PS. Is she from League of Legends ?

This is the new skin of Miss Fortune from League of Legends! I win! Bwahahhaah!

HERO said...

Skarvald wins! Yeah, I'm still playing LoL whenever I can and destroying face with her. Build order is Doran's Blade, Potion, BF Sword into Infinity Edge, 2x BF Swords and Last Whisper. Build into Black Cleaver or BT depending on what you need.

I just edited my list, let's try again without the Dais.

Bryce963 said...

Why the PGLs on the wyches? They have grenades, my book is at home, but I'm almost positive they have grenades, that saves you points, and I would say take another 2 wyche squads instead of the trueborn, you have 15 darklances and 2 blasters. that might be enough.

I find it really hard to not take 6 troops choices(warriors/wyches/wracks) when making mock up dark eldar lists, their troops are just so good.

Sorrowshard said...

Dunno , looks solid to me , good mix of CC ,AI and AT ability, 4 scoring unit , looks solid, only things i would suggest is that if after playtesting you feel low on torrent/IA fire maybe consider putting the trueborn in venoms, they also only need to be in 4's really , could drop the two 'spares' and buy the succubus maybe a blast pistol and haywires ?

I think he might be right about them having plasmas as standard, you should not really need the def grenades , though haywires are worth consideration, playtesting will reveal if you need them or not.....

HERO said...

Oh no, I know 100% that they have Plasmas by default, the 10 pts is just really sitting there cause I haven't given them anything. I might remove one of 'em for Aethersails for the 2 Raiders and keep the PGL one with Vect.

Rathstar said...

I like the new list. I'd love to see the expression on your opponents face when you tell them Vect steals the initiative on a 4+ :)

Let us know how you do.
