Default How to kill Dark Eldar

My best friend just started 40k, and he's getting a Dark Eldar army. Any good tips on how to kill him? > I know dark eldar are quick but weak, so I'm thinking less railguns and more Troops + Crisis

i'd say if you use a solid base of four firewarrior squads, some HH's for submition fire and some crisis suits for hassling his only decent models

Don't mock them so fast - if they get ANYWHERE near you, they can dice you like no tomorow. That said, if you can shoot him with anything save Gue'Vesa Lasguns, you can chop both infantry and vehicles to bits.

Yeah, thats a good strategy.

Currently there isn't much choice, all he has are 2 troops and 1 HQ, but of course I wrote this post in the first place so that I'd be ready in advance for hordes of the puny guys. Wow, warriors really suck!

And Dra-Tuisi (I won't even try to spell the rest...) that's right...the problem is that I don't intend on them getting close > a troop of 12 FW's can easily take out about 4-8 warriors a turn.
For later, when he gets some elites and advanced guys, I'm probably gonna have to get a bit more Kroot, especially hounds, with their CC significance. In 3 turns they'd most likely be chopping me up to bits. Damn 12" move!

don't take kroot, just don't. with their initiative they will get sliced , diced and served to you for breakfast. stick with what i told you it is a proven DE killing army list. your firewarriors will be able to take out over a squad of warriors a turn, if your unlucky ! your HH's submition shots if placed well can kill up to 2-3 squads, and crisis suits will keep those pesky elites in line

I agree with the rest if what you said, and I meant Kroot Hounds ^.
