So I'm thinking of strategies for my current Dark Eldar list (I want to hone everything before committing on too many models. Cash is tight!) and I realized that the Reavers aren't particularly great at assault and I was contemplating scratching them from my list until I realized one very important detail: Jetbikes have special rules. They can move 6" in the assault phase and not assault! I totally forgot! I'm swamped with schoolwork at the moment, so a new updated list won't be created until probably Wednesday but if I take a few Reavers, pop a Blaster or Heat Lance on them and give them cluster caltrops I can Turbo Boost over an enemy unit (36" might I add) and end out of LoS of anything particularly dangerous and then pop out in the movement phase, shoot, pop back into hiding in the assault. Rinse and repeat. I think it would create a nice distraction for my other units and still be able to wreak some havoc. Knocking a few jetbikes out of my list also frees up room for Nightshields on my Raiders which makes killing them even more annoying.
I am so pumped for this army!
