Interesting list brother; the Dark Eldar are rather outdated but by no means weak. I've only seen them played a bit, but the guy who plays them is a true veteran. Typically, they either win totally or lose totally.

As far as the lists concerned, it's looking very nice. Reminds me of my list a lot actually; you might want to consider having one of your squads of Grey Knights equipped with 2 Incinerators instead of the psycannons. Unless you are planning on really hunkering down, I find that the flames cure corruption rather nicely. If you've got room, Artificer armor for the Justicars has proved helpful to me on many occasions.

Good thinking. Maybe I can save enough points scaling down to cinnies that I can afford Artificer Armor. I will try both out and let you know how it works out.

That definitely is a very unique list and should do well. I've only played the Dark Eldar once but my psycannons were extremely effective against his Raiders and Ravagers so keep as many as you can. Unfortunately, you cannot Master Craft any type of Dreadnought weapon. Geez Naus, I'm amazed you can even find the points to buy Artificer armor nevermind use it on a regular basis.

Could I master craft something on the LRC? Or do you think I should use it somewher else or not at all?

Very Happy Aye, I make sure each Justicar gets some Artificer armor. Ironically, a had a game today were I put a wound from a bolter on him, and laughed saying "Anything but a 1 and he's A-Okay!". I rolled a one. Mildly depressing, but hilarious. Fitting in those points for Artificer is nice when your only using a few squads of PAGK's I find.

Glad that I could help you Brother Lee; mix and match squads until you find what you feel works best ^___^. I wish you could Mastercraft anything, but sadly last I checked it has to be on an infantry model. Oh, how sweet it would be if it could be on Dreadknoughts...

Looks like a very solid list, any reason in particular you are taking the fast attack PAGK instead of the troop option? Are you planning on deepstriking them?
All those psycannons against the dark lances will give the enemy a run for their money!~

I am taking them as fast attack so that I have the option of deep striking. Maybe I will, maybe I wont, just nice to keep my options open you know.

Looking very good Brother Lee; you'll be able to experiment better once you hit the battlefield and find out what units are holding their own weight Very Happy

Why a deamonhammer in Grand Master? It's a pity for his nemesis. Also a pitty for his Initiative.

Futhermore if i were you i wouldn't put Gk for heavy support. It's very expensive and also not a troop. My thought is to share these psyc in a new troop and put also some more Gk to your 5s Very Happy
