  • ok so here is the list,

    HQ


    Great Harlequin
       Distortion-Field, Masque of the Dark Veil, powerblades         121 pts

    Shadowseer
       Veil of Tears                                                  53 pts

    Troops

    Harlequin Troup
       4 kisses, Troup Master, Warlock                                164 pts
          Venom
             Holo-Field, fusion gun                               75 pts

    Harlequin Troup
       4 kisses, Troup Master, Warlock                                 164 pts
          Venom
             Holo-Field, fusion gun                               75 pts

    Mimes
       8 mimes, 1 mimic                                           100 pts

    Mimes
             7 mimes, 1 mimic                                                    90 pts

    Heavy

    Death Jesters
       3x Brightlance                                                159 pts
       
    1001 pts total

    it's quit a straight forward list,
    the master goes with a troupe on a venom and both deepstrike maybe first round assault if they are close enough.
    the mimes will be hidden in a forward position to take out advancers and give a constant threat in a radius between 12" - 18" while the Death Jesters snipe tanks and heavy weaponry while staying out of harmsway with the veil of tears guarding them!

    i was thinking maybe switching the mimes for a squad of jetbike harlies with kisses, 2 reasons for this:
    i love the models of the dark eldar range for jetbikes and want to convert/paint them in harly style
    and second, less models to paint and will look more awesome with all fast moving vehicles.
    i think it'll be a lot less strong because of the unit count.

    every feedback is welcome!

    greetz!

  • Generally it looks good.
    By "master" you mean the Great harlequin I take it? Or did you plan to include a Master Mime somewhere?
    This is a one-shot deal; either your first attack succeeds or you are through. It is a bit of a gamble, but it might work.
    If you use the veil on the DJs it means that you have grouped them and the Shadowseer together, which means that they can betaken out by one pieplate/concentrated volley of fire. That's a lot of points to lose all at once.
    Best of luck and let us know how it goes.

  • It's treu that when they get in range (24" at max luck) they die pretty easily,
    I'm not planning on letting that happen to them :)

    and on second thought,
    i think i like it better to switch the mimes for jetbikers, maybe even get rid off the DJ's aswell and get a second jetbike squad in there so then the seer goes with the other harly squad with powerblades and distortion-field

    so the list would look like this:

    HQ

    Great Harlequin
       Distortion-Field, Masque of the Dark Veil, powerblades         121 pts

    Shadowseer
       Veil of Tears, powerblades                                                       66 pts

    Troops

    Harlequin Troup
       4 kisses, Troup Master, Warlock                     164 pts
          Venom
             Holo-Field, fusion gun                               75 pts

    Harlequin Troup
       4 kisses, Troup Master, Warlock                     164 pts
          Venom
             Holo-Field, fusion gun                               75 pts

    Fast Attack

    Harlequin Jetbike Squad
       3 Jetbikes with kisses, fusion gun   166 pts

    Harlequin Jetbike Squad
    3 Jetbikes with kisses, fusion gun      166 pts

    997 pts

    thanks for the help, greetz

  • Hey, hope you have us much fun with Rasmus's codex as I do!

    Not sure about the bikes though.  They just seem a rather fragile target, especially if you don't reserve them. If you had more infantry on the field to draw fire, they'd probably do alright, but since you're going to deep strike the rest of your force, your opponent simply won't have anything else to shoot at, so why not target the bikes?

    If you were to go with something more like the first list, you could use the mimes to take care of objectives and harass vehicles.  Mimes work, just not through a direct offensive. : )

    Also, I think I've been misreading Masque of the Dark Veil.  I thought only independent characters and harlequins (read: the guys that can take harlie kisses) could deepstrike with it.  I've actually run armies before that allowed my entire army to deepstrike.  It's risky, but it's fun, and works great with the Solitaire as it lets you get him into a fight without the danger of footslogging.
