I have been playing a Eldar player who is using a Solitar and keeps him in 6' of an other unit to i can't target him and he kills me in CC what am i to do vs this plan
Um, next time you post something like this, post your army and tactics as well.
The 6" no target rule is obsolete. Under 4th edition you cannot shoot at his IC unless he's the closest available target or has joined a unit you're shooting at.
He just has to be the closest available target so if his covering squad is in combat or falling back they will be ignored and it'll be open season on his Solitaire. Otherwise manouver your units into a position where the Solitaire is closer than his other units.
Actually you just have to pass a leadership test to shoot a further away unit.Originally Posted by Lleu
I believe that under the IC rules, under shooting, it says specifically that they can't be targeted if they're by themselves and there's a closer unit.Originally Posted by numberofthebeastxxx
Dreams give us a vision of a world unlike any we have seen. They present us with a glimpse of a better life; a goal to aspire to, and in the face of insurmountable odds, they provide us with the power to overcome, to live on, and to succeed where we would have otherwise failed.
Actually, so far as I knew there were no official 4rth edition rules for Harlequins. Just don't let him use it.

Thats a good point- the rules for harlequins were for 3rd ed and even then it was noted that they were entirely experimental and probably not balanced. Solitaires are rediculous- hmm, right, thats +6 attacks for charging,one for powerblades, 3 basic.... yeh, great fun.
Quite right. Unles he's a monstrous creature. I was reffering to units not IC's. My apologies for any misconceptions.Originally Posted by dymew
Eldar squads are notoriously susceptible to bolter fire, so just bolter the squad that he's using to protect the solitaire and they should fall back, keeping something like a warp amp or dirge caster in close to lower his leadership.
Monsieurcartier also has a point about the pie plate - if you fire indirectly, you don't actually have to ignore characters - theres also the chance of scattering onto the solitaire. Unfortunately, you're gonna have to get close, but do what the solitaire doesn't like and throw a vehicle at him - tank shock him with a predator or something and then shoot him with lascannons or autocannons - it'll insta-kill him because he's only toughness 3, and he won't be able to hurt it. Or if you really want to tailor your army to killing the solitaire, drive a havoc squad up that are all equipped with flamers, and jump out within a few inches and burn him. Flamers will ignore his holo-field save and combined with the boltguns and an aspiring champion with a plasma pistol, that should hurt him bad. Bear in mind you only have to roll two 3s or more with those four flamers and he's dead and gone. Remember that the bulk of his attacks comes from his charging - attack him with a dedicated assault unit and he'll be hurt quite quickly, as he has no save in combat. If he has a harlie's kiss, your CSM still have a good save against his five or six attacks. If he has riveblades or powerblades, he only has a 33% chance of wounding CSM.
