Dark Elves of Darkreach


Recommended Posts

Here one of my build. I know there is not alot of units but I like the versatility of this build. I really enjoy the drake troops they have the ability to move long distance with mounted and with cleave + swift attack they can be devastating. I also really like the shiver spike with there long range attack and the cleave SA. Masjestrix with her unique power over initiave and some powerful spells is great.Finally, there is all the blink units in this build that can give you somme powerfull combo with the use of swap...

Just gonna post a few lists that I have been having fun with lately. This first list is a hit or miss list, but when it works it has been ugly for the opponents..   Darkreach - 998 points   Troop

Well first off your troop with Evshyvandra Duskwidow is invalid. She can only take 6 soldiers and you have 7 with her.   I don't like the lack of bodyguards for your casters in your first tr

To be honest I proxy most of my armies since I mainly have dwarves and the new bones stuff.  For morenian I use a simple warhorse.  Humansquish is the guy with the minis

Nothing wrong with running with 4 troops at 1K. As I'm sure you are aware, the achilles heel of the list is the general lack of numbers (16 models total), and a specific lack of soliders to run interference for the casters and ranged models (which make up 1/3 of the list). It is a shame that there is little to take advantage of Majestrix's Incite spell in Troop 1. I'd wonder about retooling it slightly to be more like:

Troop 1

Majestrix Latissula, High Priestess

Shadow Demon

Avrix Dirthe, Champion

Darkrime Drake x 3

 

Troop 2

Zeshin Nightcreeper

Zalash, Assassin

Nanuranidd, Sorcerer

Shadowstep Warrior x 3

 

Troop 3

Evshyvandra Duskwidow

Shiver Spike x 3

 

Troop 4

Phase Cat

 

Luck Stone

 

You gain a model (at the cost of some of your toys), and can now use the Incite spell to get off a Rush Attack with the Drakes if you desire.

Troop 4

Shade Beast x 4

 

Troop 5

I decide to add a band of Shade beast to repacle Avrix Dirthe should be interesting to play in an offensive strike. Will see I might start making Battle report if i can see DanyBoy soon.

So...I'm slowly falling for some of the models and the rules for this army, though the lack of different poses is giving me a bit of pause. I've pulled a handful of likely proxys out of the DH line, but it seems like the Darkreach models are somewhat taller than average and I don't want a bunch of models looking like dwarves next to the Darkreach line models. Am I wrong?

 

I've thrown together a list just to see how many/what kind of models I'd being looking at, but I've no real idea of the synergies and such of this army:

 

Troop 1

-Majestrix Latissula, High Priestess

-Avrix Dirthe, Champion

-Abyssal Weapon

-Liela Mordollwen, Sorceress

-Shadowguard x 2

-Nightshade Warrior x 2

 

Troop 2

-Evshyvandra Duskwidow

-Erdolliel Saerwen

-Shadowstep Warrior x 2

-Darkshade Raider x 2

 

Troop 3

-Tierdeleira, Priestess

-Book of Tactics

-Shiver Spike x 3

 

Troop 4

-Aazhaleek, Shadow Dragon

 

Troop 5

-Phase Cat

 

Troop 6

-Luck Stone

Thilinos is the right size and the size difference is pretty small. so just roll with it.

Not a bad list to start with. Decent mixing of models. Since you have 5 troops already, I might lean towards trying to get a familiar for one of the casters instead of the Book of Tactics. But, it might cause a model change here or there.

 

One proxy I have already cemented in for myself is the use of 60028 as my shadow dragon:

Is there someone who using proxy for the 14627 Arachnilith since there is no model. After looking around the store the only suitable proxy for my taste is this one:

 

http://www.reapermin...etail/14514_w_3

 

i was also curious about the release of the figurine, I know you guys have alot of things on your plate with bones but I don't really feel like buying a figurine just for the purpose of doing a proxy since i don't play DarkSpawn...is this model would come out in 2012 or later. I suppose this is not the kind of info you gone give on a forum but who knows !?! ::P:

 

In the meantime all check the Preview gallery on a regular basis. Thanks. :rolleyes:

 

EDIT: Looks like someone anwser my request:

Shadow Tactics DoctrineSavage North - page 66  

Shadow Step Darkreach models of the elf race have the uncanny ability to hide in the shadows of others. Any Standard Base Size elf in B2B with a Base Size 2 or 3 enemy or friendly model gains the Dodge/1 SA.
Dark Senses Non-elves are immune to the effects of the Assassin SA. Elves with the Tough SA always get to make Tough checks, even when killed by Assassins or First Strike/Pike attacks.
Shadow Vision Darkreach models ignore the Stealth SA when targeting enemy models.

I don't like the lack of bodyguards for your casters in your first troop, and I don't see the point in taking so many Raiders in troop 3. Did you have specific plans of thoughts with the Raiders?

 

Personally I would drop one of the Nightshade Warriors and two of the Raiders to add 2 more Shadowguard to troop 1. That leaves 14 points so I would add a Book of Tactics and a Luck Stone.
