Hi all this is my first post and wanted to start with something small, me and my mate are starting new armies and are gonna slowley build up our point values to about 2000pts over the next couple of months. I chose to do Space wolves as they just got a new codex and i love marines, my mate started Eldar as he had a bunch of models ready to go that were not even undercoated, so we thought we would start things off with a 400pt combat patrol game to test the waters. He is probably gonna post his list on this thread soon but here is my list plz criticism welcome
6x grey hunters: plama gun=100pts
6x grey hunters: plama gun=100pts
5x grey hunters: plasma gun=85pts
5x wolf scouts:2x plasma pistols, melta gun=115
you have a LOT of plasma in that list. Is he going to run a wraith lord or squad of wraith guard?
I would suggest the much cheaper flamer, unless you were wanting to stay out of assault range against them.
If you were to drop the 3 plasmas on the troops you could add a 6th hunter to the 5 man squad, and give the scouts a flamer as well.
Do you know what your friend will field?
At 400 points I really don't think Eldar are gonna field anything requiring so many plasma guns. At 400 points all you need to pretty easily beat Eldar are marine squads. Like the above post mentions flamers would be a much better choice, not only because they are cheaper, but because they rape Eldar troops.
At higher point levels you may find yourself going back to plasma guns. If you are developing a WYSIWYG army then I understand you wanting to field the plasma guns now to save yourself remodeling later.
Also, are you fielding scouts because you don't have points or models for anything else? Any way you could put in a cheap Dread or heavy support?
Fantastic idea!Also, are you fielding scouts because you don't have points or models for anything else? Any way you could put in a cheap Dread or heavy support?
i recently played a 1000 pt battle of SW vs Eldar. and my dreadnought with assault cannon and heavy flamer took 10 dire avengers, the farseer, 6 howling banshees, and 10 guardians. It was very effective, and the flamer did more damage than the assault cannon. I was actually able to hide him in cover while he tugged up the board. luckily the eldar troops fleeted forward to get within blade storm.
Wow thanks for the feedback guys, as shikamaru said i want to keep the plasmas for bigger battles so i dont need to re model and these are the only models i have exept for a vindicator wich has too high armour value, i dont know if i can play a dread also because of its armour value i thought you could only have a armour value that adds to 33 but i may be wrong.Also i think this is his list ...
-10x Dire Avengers with Exarch, Dual Shuriken Catapults and Blade Storm (143pts)
-5x Pathfinders (110pts)
-5x Warp Spiders with Exarch, Dual Death Spinners, Power Blades and Surprise Assault (147pts)
TOTAL: 400 points
this is what he can make with the models he has at the moment
Ok so i played 2 games against my friend, the first was a kill point game wich i lost with the only unit left on the bord for my friend was a warp spider exarch, the second was an objective game with 2 objectives wich i won 2 objectives to 0 both games i think the scouts were MVP's wich realy earnt back there points. Anyway i wanna thank you for the feedback it realy helped for future games
My club is playing an escalation league and my SW buddy is taking like 3 razorbacks with 5 man squads (not familiar with SW codex completely), but at least 2 razorbacks would be brutal, and 1 would be ideal at least!

I do like razor backs but dont have the models, maybe i might invest in some those heavy bolters could rip his dire avengers up good, also i cold take DP's with DWML those large blast templates would be useful
ty for ur advise.
