Army Lists: Dark Eldar 'No Spam' - 2,000 points


Dark Eldar are tough bastards to make a no spam army; they need to work together and basically need to hit hard so they don't get hit back and in order to do that they need to spam poison and lance weapons. Anyway I like a challenge to here goes it.

Oh, as previously discussed here's a link to What is spam?

List is over by 2 points but what's 2 points between friends? ;)

Originally when making this list I planned for some Incubi in a Raider and some Scourges too. When making the list I decided to go for Reavers as they can move up with the Cronos', Hellions and units inside vehicles plus gives me some melta too.

The plan would be the Wyches Raiders move up along with the Warriors' Raiders; these then lay down lance fire.

Reavers will move flat out adding more support to the Raider line and will move flat out to get those heat lances into range. Hopefully they can use the bladevanes.

Hellions will move up adding more target saturation. Trick with this unit is to start Baron with the Wracks and the Haemonculus with the Hellions. Each I.Cs leaves the units and Baron takes the pain token while the Haemonculus leaves the other behind. The I.Cs then join their correct units and now the Hellions start with feel no pain and furious charge.

I did consider Talos before though I feel with Wyches, Reavers and Hellions that the Cronos will be better for dishing out pain tokens. It can even give itself a pain token if it wants. The small blast and template are pretty nasty to infantry as well and in combat the Cronos will mash things up easily.

To add some anti air I went with the Voidravens. I think dual void lances will be handy and the void mine is just a bonus. I added flickerfield so the Voidravens don't have to jink.

Best deployment for this army would be on refused flank and probably go second - hope you get night fighting and can survive the first turn of shooting. If you're against a heavy ranged shooting army then of course go second.
