Hi there, my name's Alex and I have just joined this forum. Not been that long at playing 40K but have an Eldar army that I've been collectiong for about a year now. Hope to find out lots of useful tips and tricks for fielding them in a decent way from all you other Eldar players.
Eldar are cool, but I hear they are tricky. Good luck!
hey Alex, im new to eldar too and im glad to find someone in the same situation as me.
Have u decided on a craftworld yet??
In all honesty, it depends on -
The troops you have,
The style of play you are used to,
The usual battles you are likely to play.
For example: I have some of everything in my eldar army (I can easily make up to around 3,000 pts) but the players I generally play are space marines and imperial guard.
For me, my usual army has dark reapers as standard as they are perfect for fighting marines, but also have a strong enough rate of fire to take down squads of guardsmen. I frequently have at least one falcon flying around with a bright lance or starcannon depending on who I'm playing (Guard or Marines respectively).
My usual style of play is to have my reapers keep the numbers of heavy weapons and tanks to a minimum (Reaper Exarchs with missile launchers can harm most tanks enough to at least destroy their main weapons or destroy them) while the majority of my army is positioned to use the best cover to get close enough to assault.
my HQ is almost always a farseer with two warlocks (Farseer with Mind War) as HQ-killers and anti-tank units in their own right (Strength 9 when attacking tanks in combat).
So my advice is, decide who you are most likely to be playing and develop an army around that with some extra units eventually to be able to sub- in in unusual circumstances (i.e. usually need something bigger to take on daemons, faster to get close enough to Tau, numerous enough to handle 'Nids or Orks or powerful enough to take on Guard players with numerous tanks)
Get back to us with an idea of what you have and who you're likely to play and maybe someone can help you more?
Lestat, please check the date of a post before replying to it...this thread is the best part of a year old.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
