Welcome to Librarium Online!
i am new to eldar and i am going to be playing my first game of warhammer 40k this saturday agianst Chaos and then agianst my fathers Orks which will die easily.
here is my list thank you for any comments.
HQ: 1 farseer w/ spirit stones, runes of witnessing, eldritch storm, mind war: 125 points
3 warlocks w/ conceal and shining spears: 99 points
Troops: 16 Guardians w/ scatter lazer: 143 points
6 warp spiders: 132 points
1 Vyper w/ missle launcher: 65 points
Heavy Support: 1 falcon grav tank w/ bright lance, halo field: 180 points
i know that i only have one troop choice right now but i can only play with what i have.
When I talked to your Dad about substituting something else for the heavy weapons in the Guardian squad I meant to tell him it was ok to split the models into 2 groups of 8 and then proxy 2 models and a heavy weapon for each squad so that you ended up with 2 squads of 10 with each having a heavy weapon choice.
Sorry about that. :blush:
Falcons should NEVER have a bright lance. Always have a S6 weapon on them so that they can move 12" and still shoot everything. I'd say go for a scatter laser.
Also your vyper would be better with either a scatter laser or pair of shuriken cannons.
With those points saved get spirit stones for your falcon and if you can't find anything else to spend the points on (any spare models lying around) then get the other 2 upgrades on it as well.
I would say spend the points to get the spiders an exarch or get the guardians a warlock.if you can't find anything else to spend the points on (any spare models lying around) then get the other 2 upgrades on it as well.
IRON WITHIN, IRON WITHOUT!
I survived LO Chat thanks to: Karmoon, Rabbit, Process, Tossy and Meish.
I changed my army list and ended up loosing to Jokers chaos but i demolished Ugluk's orks!
here is what i ended up with:
HQ: 1 farseer & 3 Warlocks: 260 points
Troops: 10 guardians w/ scatter lazer, 10 guardians w/ scatter lazer: 208 points.
elities: 6 warp spiders: 132 points
fast: 1 vyper w/ missle launcher: 65 points
heavy: 1 falcon w/ bright lance: 160 points
i will post what happened in a battle report!
lol didn't really listen to my suggestions did ya mate. Ah well I'll leave you to figure out the bright lance thing on your own.
Just to make sure you know the big long gun on the falcon is the pulse laser NOT a bright lance. The smaller gun that comes with it is a scatter laser.
Just quickly, if your playing chaos maybe drop something for a squad of walkers with starcannons, then get the farseer to guide them. bright lance on falcon is quite stupid, one of mistakes i made 2. if you leave a falcon still and fire both weapons, its gonna die and isnt gonna kill much in return the bright lance will only hit half the time and you might not even the 4 you need. i reakon warlocks are pretty useless, theyre the crap of all trades. 1 attack in cc and a s pistol isnt gonna kill much. drop them and the vyper just give the farseer guide and should be able to fit 2 walkers in there

Well in his other thread he said these were the only models he owns so changes like that are kinda out of the question.
Switch one of the powers on your farseer, having two powers that are cast in the shooting phase means you can only use one per turn. But putting guide, doom, or fortune on him would allow you to cast one power at the beginning of your turn, and one in the shooting phase. Personally I would use cast fortune on the farseer and warlock squad, reroll 4+inv saves are fun!
I'm not sure why you have conceal on your warlocks, they already have a 4+inv save and the 5+ cover save would be a complete waste. Embolden or enhance are more logical choices, and you couldn’t use singing spears and destructor in the same turn.
I think you might want to check the point’s values for your guardians. I'm not really sure where you got 208, should be 190.
Listen to LordLink on the falcon stuff. Falcons are "usually" equipped with a scatter laser, shuriken cannon, or starcannon. Vyper's weapon selection is also a little strange; he would be lots more help against orks with 2 shuriken cannons. (Less points, 6 shots!)
I see the beginnings of a cool list! Can’t wait to your battle report!
CODEX: EldarNow with maximum pwnage!Record with Eldar this summer = 11W-1D-1L yay!
