The End is Nigh

Space Wolves can do what I do, but with better wargear and Blood Angels are running around with Terminator Apothecaries (something that was unique only to the DA codex). Now with the long overdue release of the new Dark Eldar codex around the corner, what I do will be decimated on turn one (I already got a taste of the Alpha Strike with Imperial Guard).

-Rant Over-

About a year ago I started buying some Dark Eldar stuff in anticipation for when they would eventually receive an update. I played a couple small games with them and loved the finesse needed when playing them. It was a nice change of pace from my Tri- Land Raider list that relied on the AV 14 to keep me in the game.

Looking at all the stuff floating around on the DE, I must say I am liking the direction they are going and the new models are amazing. Pain tokens giving units feel no pain and furious charge, Ravagers moving 12'' and firing all weapons, Asdrubael Vect becoming a CC monster (definitely including him in my list and seizing the initiative on a 4+ is not too shabby either) and Incubi gaining additional attacks on rolls of 6 to wound; the list goes on and on...

This post is to inform you all that am putting my Deathwing on the shelf and jumping on the Dark Eldar bandwagon. Over next few months I will be stocking up on Dark Eldar goodies

Maybe this new project will inspire me to post more articles...
