Battle Fleet Gothic! - Second Game with Dark Eldar - 40k Fleet Tactics and Hobby

The Dark Eldar are a piratical race in the warhammer 40k universe. And I have been learning how to use them in the depths of space combat within the game of Battle Fleet gothic! I have been gearing up a small but hard hitting fleet and I thought it would be a good idea to show it off.
This is my 750 pt fleet. It comprises a Torture class Carrier ,  3 Impailer Escorts, 3 Lance escorts and a "Succubus" class light cruiser.
I have also been working on some conversions for the fleet. There are some really cool tutorials online if you look for them.
So these are the basis for a couple more cruisers to play larger games. So! What do you Think?
We have also played a few games with the new fleet as well. I have filmed them and will be posting some battle reports on the youtube channnel HERE. My Goal is to reach 8000 subscribers on the youtube channel by the end of the Year and im currently at 4700, head over there for more cool 40k tactics and other hobby videos as well.

I played a small 400 pt game last time, this time Evan and I played a 750pt Game.

He ran a space marine army:
4!!!!! strike cruisers... nasty. They are slow, but they hit HARD and have amazing armour, and are all round fantastic ships. With good leadership.

The game was a blast. We had to call it early, the Dark Eldar were only slightly ahead in victory points, and thus, a draw was called. The Dark Eldar performed well, a good use of some initial mimic engine use put some great pressure on the marines. In future games I have to make sure I use more of the escort size ships as they are quite handy to have and move fast, and can use asteroid fields to their advantage.

Well. Thanks for reading!
Skari - out.
