Thinking of joining in the league Dark Eldar (0 comp)

Postby anumberone » Fri Apr 11, 2014 3:58 pm

I'm on the fence joining in on the 40k fun, but I did have an idea for a fun, thematic list. I already expect to lose and lose hard and already know my core has basically no chance to hold objectives, etc. This boat has huge holes in it before it even hits the water. It would give me excuse to lovingly paint these cool ass minis before tossing them back in the bag for another year or two. I present. ..Urien Rakarth's Posse of Pain!

HQ Urien Rakarth 190pts

Elite 4 Grotesques with 1 liquifier in a raider 210pts

Troops

5 wracks in a venom with 2 splinter cannons 115pts

5 wracks in a venom with 2 splinter cannons 115pts

Heavy

Talos with chain flails and twin linked haywire blaster


That comes out to 745 pts. I picture it as Urien's closest associates and I plan on mixing in a 20 man warrior squad (slaves!) along with another pain engine, scourge and another unit of Grotesques (once I finish them). I went with 2 small wrack squads so I'd have some shooting to speak of. They'd be small units when their transports blew up and killed them anyway.

Thoughts are appreciated, trolls can save me the trouble and punch themselves in the dick.

Are splinter cannons the only armament available?

The Venoms come stock with a Splinter Cannon and a Splinter Rifle and the Rifle can upgrade to a second cannon for 10pts... very similar to the Eldar Vipers (ShuriCannon/Catapult).

So no... no other armament options for Venoms...

I don't know who Urien Rakarth is. What's his deal?

Look like a cool base so far.

I could start the venoms with one splinter cannon and one twin linked splinter rifle and use the 10 pts a piece to add liquifiers to my wracks.
That way they have a way to mitigate charges a bit. My only concern is would I be able to add the splinter cannon if I scale up?

Urien is sort of a mad scientist and he buffs grotesques and wracks. Kind of a beast in combat but certainly not overpowered. His model makes me happy.

Do it Ed. It looks like a solid core.

It sounds like wargear is flexible. I'm also a fan of liquifiers just for the chance at low AP, and even if you get a 6 they're still basically a flamer. Talos is a good call too, he'll be a beast in the low point level games.
