That's the problem with the internet. You don't need to know anything about the matter at hand to give advice...

 :icon_lol: Ain't that true.

And don't post useless info here, unless to debunk it, or it will degrade the integrity of the thread.

Someone just posted that "purifiers wont even dent incubi squads"

EXCEPT THEY HAVE 2 FORCE WEAPON attacks, AND WITH HALBERDS, STRIKE BEFORE YOU!

AHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Grey Knights are silly.

Necrons will be even more silly.


How to beata grey knights with dark eldar: shoot them. Dark eldar have more shooting and farther range on most of their guns. Grey knights still die as easily as any marines.

Someone else just said to shoot until a unit is largely innefective, leaving 2-3 guys.

I like it when people give advice that is basically just 'try to win the game.'

Is there a dark eldar forum then?

At least the fluff is vaguely interesting.  My concern with Grey Knights is that their last codex was awful, and now their current codex made the fluff even worse somehow!

That's bad. Rufus doesn't like being shot! I can't imagine it would be a fun game to fly my fast stuff around keeping it far away from psycannons while I try to shoot him.

They are giving advice as if they have never played grey knights. The reference to stunning vehicles is so F*ing ridiculous. Rahhh!

No, I'm just skimming around warseer, librarium online and 40konline in the DE sections

That's why you need to take an inquisitor- that way you can make whatever fluff you want. instead of just "grey knights are the best evar!"

I can't imagine it's possible to keep all of your giant Jabba the Hutt barges out of range of all my shooting on a normal table though. It's just not practical.

Especially with deep striking, teleport shunts, and autocannon dreadnoughts of doom. And potential jokaero range boosts!

You can stun chimeras! I only half-play grey knights.



I advise you to move models around and roll dice. You might win!

Ah yes the GK fluff is silly. I was referring to the new necron rules :P
They really have begun making fluff for little Timmy. Especially with The Dark eldar dex and Grey knights. I loved the old Daemon hunters fluff. Meh


And yes Finlay, Rufus will probably hate you :P Dark eldar has some very powerful shooting, but aren't overpowered, because when they get shot at as well, they die like flies. Their strong side is that they will probably get to shoot first :P

The best part is how Splinter cannons actually throw out enough shots to rate as a Infantry Support Weapon in my eyes.

I hated Heavy Bolters and their pathetic 3 shots.

I hark back to the days of SotTR and it's 8 shot LMGs.
I thought he should act responsibly and just kill himself.

Secrets of the Third Reich. But really any game which for support machinegun type weapons you roll 6 dice or more I am pleased by. It's actually been a method in which people have tricked me into buying for a game before (like WW1 from Warhammer Historical), saying things just within hearing like "And yeah, machine guns you roll 8 dice".

No, but I have what, 4 of them in the list? plus a few venoms plus ravagers.
Deep striking will be the big issue. even a storm bolter salvo on its own is dangerous to DE, let alone psycannons or incinerators.

McKnight, it just doesn't sound like a fun game!

Whitey, get a punisher then! and kill 1 marine a turn. failtastic.


Does anyone know the logic of taking a DE squad with a splinter cannon and blaster? surely you are either wasting the blaster, or wasting 8 splinter rifles and a splinter cannon

I was including those. No way can you keep all of that stuff away from my army!

I don't play grey knights, I play inquisition. Chimeras are dedicated transports for inquisitorial henchmen squads. Along with rhinos and razorbacks.
