Howdy, folks! Just wanted to talk a little about what's going on in my 40k life, barring the fun drama our hobby has been experiencing of late :)
I've sadly grown bored with my Grey Knights/Tau list, and recently decided to bring my Dark Eldar to a tournament. I won all three games handily (no "hard counter" lists in attendance) and got me thinking about what I could do to make Dark Eldar playable in 6th edition. This of course coincides with my (soon-to-be) attendance at the LVO, land of Forgeworld and people who don't like 2++ Rerollable saves (but really, who does?)

|Don't worry - this is an old picture of my army, not the one I brought!|
However, in the morning, a magical thought occurred to me: I could play Dark Eldar. I hadn't played Dark Eldar yet this edition, and have wanted to for a while, though they have some serious problems when trying to deal with Flyers and Wave Serpents. Still, the idea excited me enough that I wrote a list out with Army Builder, and decided that if I included a Farseer to the list, I could at least Guide and Prescience two Ravagers to shoot at Flyers/Serpents.
With this shaky conviction, I set about the arduous task of digging out models who hadn't seen the light of day for months - possibly even years. Still, I must say, they've been my favorite army for forever - love the play style, aesthetics, and (dare I say?) even the fluff!
I was suddenly extremely excited to head down to the tournament!
Here's my list:

|Or, you know, win a GT|
So, I've played around with a few new lists, and tried to discover what I could replace the Bikes with. The answer is that I like the Chapter Master on a Bike just a little too much to part with him, hence only giving me about 260 points to play around with.
