Goldspohn's #thedailypaint Plog

Call me Goldspohn. I am a new wargamer, and I am starting 40k with a leap first and look latter philosophy. That said I will be jumping right into making an army and painting it by the end of 2013 (my end goal is to have about 3000 points). I decided on Dark Eldar as the army. I am a brand new paint...

Re: 3000 points Dark Eldar (looking for some help)

@ hedonismbot that's quite the helpful crituqe, thank you. Do have to admit that this is not as much an army list anymore, as it is now more like a shopping list lol. I was thinking however, of dropping a Haemonculus to gain enough wiggle room for another ravager, talos, or wyche unite: if I were to...

Re: 2013 Army Painting Challange January & Lists

Here's what I'll be shooting for, it's a little over but I think that'll be ok, I don't know if anyone else thought of this, but I was thinking that it would be fun to edit our lists by crossing off what we have finished ( maybe post a single pic too?) that way we can show our progress simply for an...

Re: 3000 points Dark Eldar (looking for some help)

@ trogit: dropping the blasters would get me enough points for another reaver unite which is probably a good thing (basing opinion on what has been said about their distraction uses on this topic, what I've read on the Internet about their invonarable save fueled survivability, and best of all the g...

Re: 3000 points Dark Eldar (looking for some help)

Nope, just needs to be 3000 points. It doesn't even need to be from the same army. I was aiming to build a legal/playable dark eldar army though, but if 3000 isn't that common of a points value for games (I don't really know, being new and all) I could build 3000 points of models that will let me pl...

If you really wanted a necromancy themed army why not go necrons, they're undead, but in space!

They're pretty boring to play though.
Because I like the fluff for the dark eldar better

Flesh golums bet steel skeletons every time in my minds eye

Re: 3000 points Dark Eldar (looking for some help)

@ Zeruel13 I was looking at the trueorn, but I wasn't sure what I could do with them that wasn't cheaper to do with warriors, who are scoring. What are some of the things that work on them?

Re: 3000 points Dark Eldar (looking for some help)

Well that's nice to know. I assume pick up games are a common occurrence at Gamesworkshop stores? I'm curious though Zeruel, what do you field in your list?

Re: 3000 points Dark Eldar (looking for some help)

Actually I believe you technically have me here, I believe the new rules for vehicles actually sstatistically slightly increased the survivability of venoms, but the new love of str 7 did not. Lets break it down shall we? 1. Your transports: They are lets face it, bad, they fold like paper and can'...

Re: 3000 points Dark Eldar (looking for some help)

@fredbob524 thanks for the advice, but I would like to stick with the dark eldar even if they're a little rough around the edges :-) but, what is an invisible beast unite? (beastmasters I assume?)

@Zeruel13 what are some of the effective unites?

3000 points Dark Eldar (looking for some help)

Hey, I'm Goldspohn, a new player, who being of the jump in blindly life philosophy,decided that the best way to start this hobby would be to spend a year learning how to paint/convert/build/play the game through some form of goal/challenge. So on a quick google search I found http://www.miniwargamin...
