Dark Eldar army list, take 2

And this is an update of the first thought experiment.

I have changed the following:

The Succubus Warlord was replaced by a Haemonculus:  – 5 points

I droped a Haemonculus: – 80 points

The Wracks were replaced by another unit of Grotesques with Raider: + 55 points

I replaced the small Wrack unit with a unit of Warriors with Blaster in a Raider: same points

I dropped the flyer: – 155 points

The two Incubi units were merged and given a Raider: – 70 points

I added two empty Venoms: + 130 points

So that leaves me with 125 spare points. I am going to add an Archon with Agoniser and Blaster Pistol, because I have the model lying around. He will get the Armour of Misery to add another -2 Ld penalty that might actually matter in some games. The last ten points will be invested in Syndriq’s Sump to gain USRs for the Haemonculus.

 

Codex Dark Eldar Detachment

Haemonculus: Warlord, The Animus Vitae, Scissorhands: 110 points

Archon: Blaster Pistol, The Armour of Misery, Agoniser: 115

5 Kabalite Warriors: Blaster, Venom with 2 Splinter Cannons: 120 points

5 Kabalite Warriors: Blaster, Venom with 2 Splinter Cannons: 120 points

5 Kabalite Warriors: Blaster, Venom with 2 Splinter Cannons: 120 points

5 Kabalite Warriors: Blaster, Raider with Dark Lance: 115 points

8 Incubi: Raider with Dark Lance: 220 points

Venom: 2 Splinter Cannons: 65 points

Venom: 2 Splinter Cannons: 65 points

Venom: 2 Splinter Cannons: 65 points

Ravager: 3 Dark Lances: 125 points

Ravager: 3 Dark Lances: 125 points

Ravager: 3 Disintegrators: 110 points

 

Coven Formation: Grotesquerie

Haemonculus: Scissorhand, Syndriq’s Sump: 90 points

(the Sump gives me Fleet to get the re-roll when he is in the Incubi or another USR depending on needs)

4 Grotesques: Raider with Dark Lance: 200 points

5 Grotesques: Raider with Dark Lance: 235 points

This formation lets the Grotesques roll on a table pre-game, similar to the Combat Drugs chart. Bonuses include +1 Strength or Toughness, Fleet, Rage, FNP 4+ or Shred. Of these bonuses, only Shred is not that great as they have S5 and Poison, so will re-roll must failed wounds anyway. All the others are really good.
