Default Dark Eladar your thoughts and opinions

So dark eldar is out and i'm sure we're all taking a good look on youtube and various forums so what do you think as a tau commander would you want to face it an easy victory or terrifying new foe.

Your thoughts and opinions

Haven't played them yet myself, but I don't like the idea of the 'fastest army' in the game being kick but in assault, doesn't bode well for Tau...

if you're directing that at me my 600pts army that we play with, isn't geared up to killing transports and armour.


Also would you mind telling me the stats for the transports the GW site doesn't open up for me at the moment so can't check them at this time.

Both transports are 10 ALL round cost 60/55 points and are open topped so defensively you could easily take them out using missile pods but a broadside will auto penetrate just by hitting it and with AP1 and open topped thats 2+ on the damage chart before you roll a dice.

so WORST case thats weapon destroyed but very easily wrecked or even destroyed

if you had some pathfinders to negate any cover it could get thats a guaranteed kill almost and if you got destroyed 50/50 chance the explosion would tear up the low toughness low Armour save Dark Eldar.

so if you used a broadside on them you have a good chance of destroying them AND killing a fair few occupants in a single shot.

and at 60/55 points a pop with their cheapest troop type coming in at 9 points a pop that opens them up to potentially devastating losses.
