Our local group is doing an escalation league and we started at 500 points. I am running dark eldar of course to get my army all done. My list was:
Haemonculus Venom blade, liquifier gun
5 Warriors, blaster
in venom with extra splinter cannon
8 Wyches with haywire grenades, hekatrix with venom blade
in raider with flickerfields and dark lance
Talos Chain Flails, extra close combat weapon, twin linked splinter cannon.
My opponent had 2 ten man squads of salamanders with a flamer and multi-melta each, and a captain with ccw and bolt pistol.
We played annihilation with pitched battle. Now I SHOULD have flown around, blasting the mon-keigh until they were whittled down enough, then swoop in for the kill. Would have been easy, but rather un-sporting.
So I charged in, had him on his last leg looking for the win about turn 3, when he used a strategic know no fear withdrawal that moved 4 guys out of charge range of the talos, who then promptly gunned him down. Then my wyches got ran down by the captain after 2 turns of winning close combat and finally losing a turn, failing a moral check, and getting run down. Then my warriors swooped in, shot up some stuff, got shot in return, failed a moral check, and ran like little girls. So he won with 3 marines and a captain left.
500 point lists are fun and different to play. With this list I really needed someone with some close combat punch. I probably should have gone with an archon supporting the wyche squad, or used a ravager instead of the talos. The talos was great in CC, which is always fun. Next time I need to be more of a sneaky git.
