So if you don't know by now head over to our youtube channel and have a peek at the £25 challenge we are running. Callum is pretty much done, the bastard picked necrons and now has a pretty solid force. Me? I chose dark eldar. Yep thats right, an army that is very hard to play, very hard to form low point lists and very vehicle/speed dependent. Sounds cheap to me! So what have I picked up? I managed to get hold of 19 unbuilt warriors for £10.50. Not bad not bad, but not great but it should give me a bit more flexibility with conversions, making Archons etc. I am hoping now to pick up a raider (or two if i get lucky) and form a list from there, idea being as follows:
An Archon with deepstrike wizardry and fancy weapons. Hopefully this should make up for the lack of mobility I will have when I fail to get more raiders.
Trueborn with blasters? Might be good against necrons but who knows. Fills up some points too, bonus.
Some kabalite warriors with maybe more blasters, I think I will leave splinter cannons alone unless they are mounted in a raider.
Maybe convert the warriors in some wyches? The older models come with a fair few cc weapons and I am sure I could rustle something up. Not sure how effective these would be against undead robots in close combat. The Hekatrix with a power weapon could be sneaky.
And that comes to exactly 500pts, marvelous.
So its either that or get more kabalites and go for horde dark eldar... which I am sure works very well.
The older models which I picked up are actually pretty neat, big fan. Not a fan of how much smaller and weaker they are compared to necron warriors however. This could be interesting.
To summarise? What have I done, please send help.
