I was wondering who uses prefered enemy special rule? I am debating using it on my white consuls for dark eldar since I have some lousy warriors laying around that I want to cut up. I bet it would look kinda cool to cover every marine and vehicle with bits of dark eldar limbs or trophies. They have some neat blades and armour that would look good as shoulder pads and armour plating.
What color scheme would look good for the DE bits on a white marine with black, ultramarine blue and scab red highlights?
...and you will know my name is the lord, when I strike down my vengence upon thee...
I use Prefered Enemy now and than, it's not something I would base my force around though, but it's a nice addon to your army. You know you get assaulted by some Dark Eldar stuff that you can't handle? 1 pt per model in the squads that wil certainly see this Dark Eldar will make up to it.
It;s a nice skill, abd fir the DE, make the darkpurple/black one, cause it fits/contrast with your marines.
my 2 pennies keep rolling away
You don't need it a lot; WS4 is higher than most standard units, so you'll hit them on 3+ anyway. And for those other things... might as well just shoot the hell out of them
But as Wulfbanes said; it's nice to have every now and then. Especially against things like Dark Eldar (man, those are nasty...)
"I have died a thousand deaths, and I will die a million more..."
I wouldn't base an army around prefered enemy and I think there are better options for traits as a whole.
But as to cutting up DE warriors, go for it! Modeling stuff is always fun, and no one says there has to be an actual rule reason for it to be there.
As for colors, something contrasting would make them stand out, but it may also look funny. The opposite of black is white, the opposite of blue is orange, and the opposite of red is green. I personally think white, orange and green dark eldar would look a little odd. Most dark eldar I have seen have been purple, black, red, dark blue, usually more darker colors. Your best bet is to see some color tests and see what works well with your paint scheme.
I can read now!
prefered enemy is a good thing to have.for eldar,u wont need it,but if u go against the bugs,then thou shallt how the hive mind screams when u sloughter its army evet if it has ws6!!!try it...u'll love it
Perrfered enemy is Ok, I think (as someone already mentioned) there are better traits to use.
As for moding, its always cool to put some chaos limbs on the bases.
