Unfortunately, I don't think harlequins are very good, but here's a go. I would build a list that's based around one unit of harlequins that's used as a counter-punch unit. Held in a reserve webway that DE bring buffed by a farseer. Then concentrate firepower of multiple serpents, a pair of wraithknights and some DE raiders w/ warriors on key opposing units. I wouldn't "waste" points on things like dark reapers and storm guardians who just got shot to hell. Not a fan of wraithblades at all. You need a big nasty or two like the wraithknights to deal with opposing heavy armor. Bikes play the objective game.

At 2000pts, it would be something like this:
Farseer
10 harlequins, troupe master, shadowseer, couple of kisses
3x3 jetbikes
3x5 dire avengers in wave serpents
2x wraithknights

Haemonculus w/ web portal
2x 5 warriors w/ dark lances in a raider

Yeah, that just feels like what works best with a unit of harlies. :) Not a challenge.

I mean. You gotta take a portal!

That said, if I was going to do Harlequins, I would go venom and jet bike heavy.

Also, don't forget about Reavers. Nothings screams harlequins more than the harlequin face plates for jetbikes.

Seriously though, you can do any list you want and paint it like right and do halrequins.

If it was me I would totally do a wraithknight up as the laughing god!

Wraithknight as the laughing god has merit. :)

I missed that. With unbound, I feel like you can use DE & Eldar to count as well enough.

Have you been playing, Pete? Haven't been to CS in a long while or NuBrand at all.

I've been in like once a month. We should get a game in one of these days.

But yeah, with eldar, dark eldar and now harlequins, you can really collect a ton of eldar and run all sorts of craziness now!

Can't wait for harlies. I knew they were going to release them when they pulled them from the dark eldar codex and the flicker field disappeared as an option.

I do really hope they do rules for great harlequins, harley jet bikes and a solitaire! Harlequin dreads wraith knights would be boss too.
