    Harelquin and Dark Eldar together?

    I'm relatively new to the game and trying to build a Harlequin/Dark Eldar list. I have a few questions on how I can or cannot go about things, mainly if I can add a Haemeclous to a Troupe from the Harlequins so I can webway portal them onto the flank I'm shooting up with my dark lances.

    I'm also open to any suggestions!

    Right now I'm running 5 warrior squads of 5 in Raiders with dark lances and the stealth upgrade, 1 unit of 5 incubi with a haemenclous, 3 sets of 3 reavers with heat lances and 2 squads of 10 harlequin troops each.

    My main issue is the harlequins getting shot up before they can assault, so I was thinking add a Haem and webway portal them in. Would this work?

    Sorry about the spelling, not my strong suit!

    Haemonculus, and I personally would love to help you, but I know very little about the Dark Eldar and Harlequins. All I know comes from the novels and a Dark Eldar Codex I have from '98.

    Here's what I'd do:
    Drop 8 harlies, add a ravager with 3x dark Lances.
    Split the remaining 12 harlies in to two groups of 6, both in raiders with haemos.
    Bear in mind that raiders are open-topped, so you can assault the turn you disembark from them.
    Keep the 20 harlies on foot, perhaps reduce to 14/16 (7/8 per unit) to make them a less juicy target.
    Give each unit a shadowseer who always casts veil of tears (phantasmancy primaris). The enemy won't even be able to target the units until you're nearly in charge range, and even then he still probably will be out of range(see:veil of tears).
    Hope this helps!
