Another tactic that most people don't use is to use a Horrorfex/Terrorfex to pin fearless units. That's right: fearless units. Fearless means they automatically pass all morale and pinning checks. It never says they can't be pinned by other means. Fortunately our outdated codex is worded in such a way that they have to take a leadership test or become pinned. RAW, this allows us to pin those nasty fearless units and mobs. The only thing it does not work against are units that pass all leadership tests and monstrous creatures.

would this work?

Its the dirty cheaty back door tactic some dark elf players use to auto win every game by having the enemy army pinned the whole time and shooting them to death or manipulating assaults

Horrorfex spam is a crutch for dark eldar players that cant win other ways

Its RAW legal and valid, but frowned upon.

Also its fairly easily countered by mech armies, guard orders, monstrous creatues, and expert players


Edit: With only a 12" range, you're asking to get kicked in the vagina if it fails

What about lance spam? That seems to be what I see the most (on the internet). I've never actually played against Dark Eldar, though.

Lance spam is essentially the Raider spam list.

4+ raiders with 5 man warrior squads with dark lance and blaster in the warriors, and dark lance on the raider.

Dark lances are the 36" heavy 1 lance, Blasters are the 12" assault 1 lance

The list posted in army lists with the tons of raider squads and 3 triple disentigrator ravagers is a workable dark eldar list.


You can also see triple lance Ravagers allowing you to move 6" and fire 3 BS3 darklances a turn per ravager
