It may just be me but unless they are a kill team they are weak... but that is my opinion. The one thing I LOVE about harlequins is the harlequin's kiss power!

Weak? Wow have you ever played against them? They have probably some of the best units in the game. Harlie wraithlord, Solitare, Death jester. Some people find them broken but then those are people that can't win against them. I would play against any army just to say I've played against them.

'Weak? Wow have you ever played against them?'

I think the question there would be...have you?.

Harlequins are the hardest army to use in the game and therefore are probably the weakest.

Their basic troops are worth nowhere near the points they are and they have only two units that are really points efficient (Solitaire and Harlie WL) one of which is shockingly unfluffy. I really can't see how anybody ['Some people find them broken'] could say they are broken in the sense that they are too powerful. If they do they have no idea of how to play the game. The only way Harlequins are broken is that they are too weak.
