Dark Eldar: Army building mistakes

Hi everyone I was meant to be doing an article on more desperate allies but due to myself being concussed (Long story…) todays will be a small blog about the common errors I always see in a Dark Eldar Lists

Now I’m not going to sit here and say that everything I do is correct or else.... I’m open to new theories, new ways of using my Dark Eldar. There are plenty more ways but there are some fundamental things I have learned in my 20 or so tournaments with these guys now (Not sick of them just yet!)

Ben Salmon guest article (alternative Taudar list)

Hey all

I’m Ben Salmon, I played against 60% of the DoG team at Mayhem and I spoke to Rich about doing a guest article about my army that was talked about during Podcast 25.

I guess I should list the army below:

Food For Thought: How Far is Too Far?

How far are you willing to go to win a game? This is the excellent question that Spicerack has asked over on 40k War Zone today. 

This is an easy one for me. Cheating is too far. Everything else with in the rules is fair game on one condition - that both players are truly playing to win based on the rules.

Journey to a Throne of Skulls

So, after many a year of vowing never to go to the throne of skulls again after they changed the format, I purchased a ticket to the event in January 2014. But why, I here you ask? For someone who enjoys a more competitive tournament is this not completely against the grain?

Centurion Fest

Hi. I’m Ian and will be contributing a few articles to Death or glory in the upcoming months mainly about my new army I have been using and some other articles about gaming. I having been playing 40K on and off since Rogue Trader and got into playing regularly at the end of 3rd edition down at Tolworth and Woking 1st founding clubs. It’s been a while since I wrote anything about the hobby so this is just a quick recap of the past few years for me. I spent the last two years of fifth edition playing space wolves with the odd bit of chaos marines here and there. Chaos has always been primarily my most used and favourite army but I have dabbled with a fair number over the years such as Orks, codex marines and even Eldar for a bit in 4th edition.

Steve's Octoberfest - Game 1

The weekend saw the DoG guys favorite tournament of the year - Mayhem (Octoberfest) which was 1750 points, 5 game, and no Forgeworld.

The missions are very custom and so is the scoring - I will go into that in more detail during the reports. What I want to do here is outline what army i took and talk about my first 2 games.

I've been going to Mayhem tournaments twice year now for around 10 years so I am pretty familiar with the custom scenario setup and it's importance around troops. On the other hand I had 0 hour playtime with the list I submitted and was using Adepta Sororitas allies which are a completely new codex. My expectations going in to this were practically zero.

Dark Eldar: Octoberfest 2013 – Distrustful allies!

Ok so having come off a disappointing result in the GT Heat, I went into Octoberfest wanting to do something different. I’d already mentioned on the blog that I wanted to go distrustful allies way. And this is the route I took…

Please note in Mayhem it is a degree of Victory tournament and the main focus on it is troops and the ability to take objectives. Therefore in the below list I’ve taken less venoms/Trueborn in order to get more troops into it.
