To follow up on last week’s Pauper (common-only) decklists for Space Marines, Chaos, Orks, and Eldar, we’re going to finish up this week with Imperial Guard, Tyranids, and Dark Eldar!
Try out the following lists and let me know what you think!
Imperial Guard require a lot of synergy to run at full potential. This deck focuses on infantry shooting and assaulting, with artillery units and Fire Base fortifications helping to remove the hardest targets. The Rough Rider units will deter any rallying or infiltration tricks from your opponent.

Charge, charge, and charge again! Tyranids are obviously assault-oriented, but have some rallying and sector movement tricks up their sleeve (claw?), as well as speed reduction from the Ymgarl ‘Stealers to help control shooting attacks.
Tyranids Pauper List – 2021.01.25
|4||Horror Zoanthrope (IV)|
|4||Spined Ravener (IV)|
|4||Ymgarl ‘Stealers (CC)|

This Dark Eldar deck relies on Wyches to deal the bulk of the damage, with some high-speed shooting support. Due to the deck’s absurdly high dice rolls, you can afford to play 4 copies of Tarreq, a double-barreled artillery unit.
The deck image features both Dark Eldar fleet cards – feel free to play either!
