Dark Eldar list 1750 - streamedlined version.

Heya all, and welcome back to the webway.

In my realspace time, I am doing what all college students are doing; surviving by sheer cunning and shrewdness. But when I am taking a break from it all, I am forging my Kabal from its unrefined ore. Suffice to say, I manage to pull out something very interesting with the army book, putting in all the units I wanted to put in while also making it strong enough to fight with other opponents.

Here's my 1750 pts list.

Combat Drugs
Phantasm grenade launcher

total pts 145 pts

Ancient Haemonculus

Total pts : 100 pts

Incubi squad
4x incubi
Klaivex upgrade with Demiklaive and Onslaught

Venom with 2 splinter cannons

Total pts: 198 pts

Kabalite Trueborn squad
4x Trueborn with blaster and haywire grenades

Venom with 2 splinter cannons

Total pts: 181 pts

9 x wracks
1 x liquifier gun
Aconthyst with Agoniser

Raider with Nightshield

Total pts: 190 pts

Wych squad
10 x wyches
Hekatrix upgrade with Agoniser

Raider with Nightshield

Total pts :200 pts

10 x Kabalite Warriors
1 x Blaster
1 x Splintercannon

Raider with Nightshield

Total pts: 185 pts

Kabalite Warriors
10 x Kabalite Warriors
1 x Blaster
1 x Splintercannon

Raider with Nightshield

Total pts: 185 pts

total pts: 115 pts

Total army pts: 1749 pts
Total KP : 18 KP
Total scoring unit: 5 
Total infantry models: 54 models
Total vehicle models: 9

I would seriously want to try out this list on someone, but as of this moment, I am still a little undecided about some minor things. Not to mention that I would seriously love to play with the voidraven bomber.

The Attention Part 4 - Short Story

An Archon is always a fearful thing indeed, even among the Dark Eldar, but even amongst all the Archons there are some that one rather not mess with, at least openly. Vect is one, but for Vespera there is another. And that Archon is here today in her stronghold. This particular one is unique as he used to be an Archon, but nonetheless gave his power away for the sheer fun of it. Vespera now holds that power.

"My nice to see you again." This particular dark eldar is clad in a rather baroque armor, even for the denizens of Commorragh and his helm is elongated with a rich flowing mane adorning it. Vespera can only give the dark eldar a courteous nod, and proceed to accompany the Dark Eldar down the hallowed hallways of the kabal's stronghold.

"Nice to see you as well, father. So how was your journey across what the mon-keigh call the Calixis sector?" Vespera always disliked her father's visit, for he tend to have a knack for timing it with some rather interesting conundrum that she currently face in her life.

"Very good, very good. But....I feel that for some reason, the journey is a little....dry." The old Dark Eldar speaks with a rather raspy, but sinister tone. Vespera can never forget that voice for as long as she lived, for it was the voice that she grew up with. She had never heard her mother's voice, for apparently she was a victim of an attempted assassination attempt upon her father. The fool of an Archon who planned the assassination had his face adorning her father's helmet which he wears at all time.

"Why is it dry though? Don't they have many souls for you to at least enjoy yourself?"

"Well, you know the ones my age. When we let ourselves go, we really just let ourselves go. I don't feel much anymore, and my eyes are not as sharp as they used to be. But if there is one thing I have sensed, I sensed that my dear Hierarch got something on her mind. You never ask me about my trips, nor care about my wellbeing ever since I gave you the Kabal. So again...what is on your mind my dear?" Despite the age of the old Eldar,one can see a deep and dark abyss of venom seeking out the truth from the helm's visor.

Still the same old calculating father, Vespera said in her mind. 

"Is this something about a rumor I am hearing? That the Archon of the Turbulent Star is courting a mate-to-be?" The old Eldar's expression is hidden behind the visage of a flayed face.

"N....No. Lord Ranisold only asked that I dine with him, and only if I want to." Vespera knew that telling the truth is perhaps the better option here. She never want to get on her father's bad side.

"Ah... I see, I see. So it is about the Archon I am hearing about. Well, I would personally like to meet this Archon myself, but I couldn't possibly meet him like this. I excuse." The old Eldar tilted his head, as if goading Vespera to say something that he wants to hear.

"But father...I got no reason to meet him." However, Vespera know that that this reply will be insufficient for her father, for her father got something else on his mind.

"Well, my dear....I would like to be that reason. I would like to see if he is really what he is. If it is possible, please do so today." The old Eldar then decided to split away from his daughter and walks down the corridor. Before long, a retinue of Incubi proceed to emerge from the shadows surrounding the old Eldar and  escort their liege immediately to wherever their liege pleases. Vespera can only wonder what her father is thinking of at times, and she proceeds to contact her lieutenant.

"Selendra...send one of the scourges over to the Kabal of the Turbulent Star to announce our arrival later on today. Tell Ranisold that he would be expecting some rather interesting guests...."

Hunting in Guardian Games for Dark Eldar - the progress so far....

Heya all, welcome back.

Now remember that in the last post, I managed to find a gaming store in Portland and how it got some pretty nifty models. With that in mind, I decided to slowly search my way through all the models with my nifty little itchy hands. Every time, I would find something I like in more ways than one, but not enough for me to go all "AWWWWFUUCCKKKKYYEAAAAHHH!!!!!"

But after two sessions of hunting stuff in the store for two days (one on the weekend and one today), I managed to find a few things that I find very interesting.

1)On my first hunting trip, I managed to find an OOP Archon, the one with the huge claw and the flayed skin-mask. I always liked this model, as it got this baroque feel to it that I really enjoy. Since it is the only one in the store.....well, I better buy it so that no one else will get it. :P

On the table, he will be my Asdrubael Vect if I ever play with him. But fluffwise, this guy will be Vespera's (grand)father who's kinda jaded and despite his apparent retirement, he would kick ass from time to time.

2)Second trip, I managed to bump into two old school raiders (which I would like to make into the raiders for my Wyches) and Drazhar. Always interested to have Drazhar's model, and also if I ever use Drazhar I would have him. If not he can be the Klaivex of the Incubi if I ever use Incubi as he is the only damn model with a Demiklaive. Due to my current lifestyle adaptations for the moment, I decided to buy Drazhar instead. With him being the only Drazhar in the store.....yeah, I did the Dark Eldar-ly thing to do.

So with the purchae of Drazhar I have now all the Special characters that have actual models representing them (the other two being Lelith Hesperax and Urien Rakarth).

If my budget would allow me, I would be getting those old school raiders because they are cool in their own weird way, but now it is very well-hidden in the store's massive array of minis. PURCHASE WILL BE MINEZZZZZZ!!!!!

Lost and Found

Welcome back, and though it's been a while since I posted anything but this time I got something that I can blog about.

I have been in the Land of the Free (apparently) a.k.a US of A for a few weeks now, and seeing that I need to know a lot more about my realspace I explore Portland whenever I could. On one of those days, I decided to cross the river to go and see what's up with it.

As I crossed the river, I realized that it is quite different from Portland City Center, and indeed I felt like I am in totally unfamiliar grounds. And thus, begins the exploring. Suffice to say, the awesome exploring becomes more like a screwed misadventure and I got lost.
