    And, muppet, your army would be what against what? In which case this would be better in your particular army's sub forum.

    well I have smashed out a victory against a Shooty Eldar army using cathachans.
    I say take a lot of heavy bolters, heavy flamers and heavy artillery. I had two earthshakers and a Leman Russ.

    Excellent, thanks for the input,

    I had a lascannon team which came under the HQ command squad and was duly killed before it had done anything <:>

    So I have now split them up in to my three infantry sqds, and I have another 3 sqds to put together and I was not sure weather to take the HB option or the AC .

    I also have 2 Leman Russ tanks and a demolisher on its way just in time for a competion at my local GW store starting in January

    I hope you can smash eldar the way I did.
    In that Battle I talked about I fired an earthshaker at a squad of wraithguard. I made the warlock flater the pizza which meant that the Wraithguard just stood there not doing any thing while I gunned them down for their point value in victory points.

    I&#39;d say take HB&#39;s due to the fact that 3 shots is better then two. Especially when playing Eldar and other armies with toughness 3, 2+ to wound, so a strength 7 autocannon doesn&#39;t really matter ( unless you wanna instant kill one of &#39;em ) . However you should probily keep some las-cannon teams around to detear any Wraithlord&#39;s.
