sounds like an original idea...looks like an alright list overall, but i would think of a few things.

Mr Mek...has a slugga and choppa. This is okay...but you will find that since he is in a mob with a PK, that he will be in combat at some stage. For this reason i would give him a burna. Strength 5 Initiative 4 on the charge, power weapon, very useful against crons and marines. 20 points, so i would suggest taking out the 3 rokkits in your boy mob. You have 3 TL rokkits, and 2 others on BS3 kans...trust me in 1k thats all you need. Keep in mind powerklaws and buzzsaws and dreadnought close combat weapons (which are in EVERY unit you have) will monster vehicles too.

Those who dont soon regret it :P

Nah its good to see that people agree, but remember just because someone says its good doesnt mean it is for you. Alot of people play completely different styles and strategies, i was just giving my personal opinion, and im glad you think the same.

Good luck with the list.

Is this something you plan on modelling as well, or just an idea?

I may plan on modelling this but do not have the models yet. This is not one of my ideas I never start I may change the list around some after some playtesting and seeing if I like it but I am making this army. Ski could be pretty easy as well making them from plasticard. I actually got the codex and really like the idea and many people seem to like it. I think I may change the list to other stuff if it turns out I do not like it.

I actually think the Deffkoptas can be done as a Nob in Mega Armor with skis, and he's got goggles, angled low (raise the base up a bit w/scenery maybe) and then with like a rocket strapped to his back or something. Or maybe one getting air time.

If you have a spare Shokk Attack Gun model, you can use the Snotling being vacuumed up and stick him on the side of one of the models instead. :P


Anyway, I think you need to have more Fast Attack choices for this list.

I tested this list out on vassal and saw how it did. I did not really get close enough with the shoota boyz with the kff to assualt but the burna did not do much. The grotzooka kans did not do much either too short ranged for this dark eldar player that tried to stay away. I had to save it to get a haircut. I think the burna was not that effective and he stayed away from the grotzokas.

anyway might want to try a new list
HQ
Big mek KFF 85

Troops
20X slugga boyz 2 nob powerklaw bosspole 155
30x shoota boyz 3x bigshootas nob powerklaw bosspole (Big mek will be joining this unit.) 230
20x shoota boyz 2x big shootas nob powerklaw bosspole 165
fast attack
3x deffkoptas twin-linked rookits buzzsaw 160

Heavy Support
2x killa kans rokkit 100
2x lobbas 59 3x extra krew
2x cannons 46 2x extra krew

I really want to do some scratchublidng of big guns to be gunsleds for this army.

Default Re: Da' avalanch boyz 1000 points.

Remember Dark Eldar is near impossible to beat if
a) you dont have much experience playing against them and
b) if they are a very good dark eldar player

In fact this rule is like most armies, but Dark Eldar are just so different. There are so many special rules, wargear, weapons, characters, FoC selection chart varieties, etc that it makes them hard to play against to get a general idea of what went wrong.

I suggest try this new list out though, but you will find that against a team that isnt anywhere NEAR as fast as DE (most teams) your burna will get a half decent use, and your kans will have fun. They earn back lots of points, even in assault. (especially against crons and marines) Try the new one out tho (If your looking for someone to try it against, organize a time with me if you want)

Hi,

Looks great except one thing, I believe that your all your boyzs squads are five points under.

Apart from that the list looks great.

Sorry to bear bad news.
