    Is it fun to play dark eldar? I am playing necrons and looking for something to try.

      They’re fast and fun but very fragile. You will find it to be nearly the opposite of playing Necrons which may be cool as it will be a change of pace for you.

        I read that DE works very well with Eldars. Is it true?

          Yes, they do combo very well with all the other Eldar factions.

          Eldar are better at being DE than DE are.

          Craftworld Eldar can pull off a “hit hard and dodge the counter-attack” playstyle far better than DE can; Warp Spiders, Windriders, and anything with battle focus systematize speed as a defense far better than shitty cover saves or inv. saves on DE units do, and those same units also outgun DE by a huge margin.

          They’re some of the best sculpts in the range, but outside of some specific formations or wargear combos with CWE, GW just screwed the pooch on their book.

        I have seen Grotesquerie formation lists that are incredibly durable and still hit fairly hard. The Haemonculus Covens power from pain table really puts the base codex version to shame.

          Yeah, and the Corpse Thief Claw is extremely good, too.

          I love the Grotesque field, but it needs some psychic support. They were able to take down a melee wraith knight with a combination of Misfortune and Forewarning.
