    Eldrad using Doom while in combat?

    Just started playing Eldar recently (my Necrons don't do psychic ).

    If Eldrad (or any Farseer) was engaged in assault combat from the previous turn, at the beginning of the next Eldar turn can he still use Doom on an enemy unit, either the one he is engaged with or a different unit up to 24" away?

    Also, while engaged in combat can he still confer Fortune to his unit, and/or Guide to another unit, not his own, within range?

    Thank you in advance for any answers or additional tips you can provide!

    It's been a while since I've played with my Eldar, but I am sure that the only Psychic powers that cannot be used by a Farseer whilst they are in Close Combat are shooting attacks. These are the powers that are used in the shooting Phase (Mind War and Eldritch Storm). Doom, Fortune and Guide are all used at the start of the Eldar turn and are not affected by the Farseer being in CC.

    As for Eldrad, his Staff lets him use a third Psychic power. This can be a power he has previously used, though only if he isn't in Close Combat.

    Doom is a tricky one because, though not a shooting attack it requires you to target any non-vehicle unit. We do allow it to be cast in our gaming group as it is cast at the start of the turn and not really during the Assault phase.
    Fortune and Guide state that you simply pick an Eldar unit within 6".
    At the beginning of turn 1, I spray my opponent's army with the bacon flavored spray. Then I unleash my Boston Terrier Squiggoth who then devours their entire bacon flavored army! There is no defense against her cuteness! All are doomed!

    There's no reason why a non-shooting psychic power cannot be used when the psyker is involved in CC, unless it is specifically prohibited in the power's description.
