So here in no particular order are some of the units I find myself gravitating toward in the new book.
I know you’ve already heard a lot about this but since everyone else has told you their opinion I thought I’d through my hat into the ring as well. I hate to say it but there’s not much you can do with these using just the Dark Eldar Codex. I know people are excited about deep striking grotesque death stars, units of 4-10 Medusae, and Heat Lance Scourges/ Reavers and I’m not saying any of that is bad, although some of it probably is. It’s just the stuff you can do with Eldar is better. Yep, the rest of this paragraph is going to involve allies so purists should just skip down to the next one. You can put an Archon in a unit of 10 Fire Dragons in a Wave Serpent and deep strike the whole thing Serpent and all next to anything you want get the Dragons out and unload all the weapons in both units without having to snap fire a thing! The other one people like are D Scythe Wraithguard I’m not saying that this is bad but something to bear in mind is that when you deep strike down your guys are going all bunched up in a circle and you’ll likely only be able to place about three of those templates without hitting your own models (which you can’t do). If you do decide to do this you need the wave serpent as well so you can disembark and spread out. My “Webway Portal Buddy” Eldar ally detachment of choice at the moment is a Spirit Seer, five D Cannon Wraithguard with a Wave Serpent (just as a gun platform) as troops and Seven Fire Dragons with a Wave Serpent of their own. it gives me needed anti armor power versus Wave Serpents and Knights
Real Space Raiders Detachment
BUT 6 FAST ATTACK!
