10 wraith guard
10 wraith guard
HWP missile launcher
HWP missile launcher
5 wraith guard
8 with kisses
heavy suport (285)
3 suport weapon battery
this list should work as a sort of gun line. with the D-cannons in the middleish part of my deployment behind some sort of cover, to either side the wraith guard troops about 8 to 10 inches away. the guardins go warever thay might be anoing. the wraith guard in the wave serpent and harlequins stay back and hit when the oponit get close, stop the line from crumbling.
i dont know how the wraith guard in the wave serpent will work, i think i might need to use those points for something else.
will this work? it is intended as an all comers list, but i think i might not fair to well agenst a guard gunline.
Trying to kill that list is gonna be a pain in the you know where. That many T6 dudes will not die easily. But you are right in thinking that a stand and shoot list is gonna tear this apart. Iron warriors come to mind, as do Tau. Guard with a bunch of autocannons will also do the trick. I would personally drop the support platforms, and add in another wraithlord. After that, drop a farseer power, and add in conceal to as many WG units as possible, 'cause they are going to EAT fire all game. The harlequins also have a few too many kisses, six is fine.
I also hope that you realize that you have about $200 spent on wraithguard alone...
I like it, but you will need a little more speed.
Simply put, the harlies don't fit, so drop them.
In their place (well, fast attack) add some vypers with either double cannons or BLs so you can get to the IDF stuff.
Also, try dropping the 3man dcannon, for either 2X2 vibro cannons (will control more of the board) or a single set of 2. With the left over points, you can buy another WL.
Again, should be fun, and with the added mobility on the vypers, basilisks, whirlwinds, and the such shouldn't be such a problem.
16,000+ of Eldar (only need flyers)
7,000+ of Nids (want heirophant)
6,000+ of Space Marines (need rever titan)
4,400+ of Cygnar (all models for the faction)
1,500+ of Legion (just started)
vipers? i all ways thought thay wher to fragle in resepct to the point cost to be worth it, and BS3. would you do squadrons or lone modles. i supose 3 units of 1 viper would be anoing having to kill one at a time and all, but still a bolter can take them down. i under stand keeping them in cover and all but you need to reveal your self to shoot. never realy did understand how to use them.
i think you have a point about the D-cannons thay do have a crappy range.
you are also right about the harlequins i was justifing it in my head but thay realy are not in the style of the list.
Mongooseo i must confess i do not realy intend to build this list, proxy more than likely an only for a game or two.
speed realy is a major issue. that feels like an odd thing to say about eldar. vipers might be the answer.
how about this drop all my elites. turn my support weapon battery in two two groups of two D-cannons, three sets of one viper with missile launchers, and two groups of 6 guardian jetbikes with 2 shuriken cannons in each group. that leaves me with some thing like 34 points. what are your opnions.
1) Take eldrad instead of your farseer. He is almost the same points as your farseer but he can cast fortune on 2 groups of wraithguard (2 groups of 10 t6 guys with re-rollable 3+ saves, godly) o and give them 5+ cover saves...
2) The wraithguard are slow, you have to make the enemy come to you! Some warwalkers and other long range heavy firepower force most armies to come to you and then you can break them on your wraithguard.
3) I think two units of wraithguard are more then enough.
4) Split your harlequins into two squads that will act as a counter charge.
5) Have two wraithlords hold up each flank. Give them anti tank gear (brightlance and missile launcher.)
