    2000 pt Black Library themed army list

    Im going through a zomg Black Library phase and so here is my Army List for it
    depending on what u guys think this could be anything from a just for fun list to a competitave list.

    HQ
    Eldrad Ulthran
    6 warlocks as a bodyguard
    mainly Destructer (think mass flamer destruction)

    Elite
    Full Harlequin Troupe
    fully upgraded (thats troupe masters, shadowseers, death jesters, kisses and fusion pistols)

    Full Harlequin Troupe
    fully upgraded

    Troops
    Full Wraithguard squad
    lead be a warlock with conceal and spiritseer

    10 Rangers
    upgraded to pathfinders

    HS
    Wraithlord
    Brightlance and wraithsword

    Warithlord
    Brightlance and wraithsword

    all up this comes to pretty close to 2000 points ive forgotten how much it is exactly
    i know i havent really thought this army through enough but i would like any and all advice/criticism

    For more detail about the Black Library theme behind this go to http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...rmy-fluff.html (Black Library themed army fluff)

    not really that "black library" since eldrad is Ulthwe and the only real black library forces are harleys, would recomend looking up ulthwe strike force.

    6 destructors is a waste, you will find by number 5 or 6 and sometimes 4 that you have no targets in flamer template range, look at embolden and enhance and also bare naked locks as abaltive aarmour
    Elite
    Full Harlequin Troupe
    fully upgraded (thats troupe masters, shadowseers, death jesters, kisses and fusion pistols)

    Full Harlequin Troupe

    good god no, death jesters and fusion pistols are pointless, 10 kisses is a liability, you will end up killing all your opponents on the charge, his turn the nearest unit shoots you to shreds, you only want about 5 kisses
    Troops
    Full Wraithguard squad
    lead be a warlock with conceal and spiritseer

    10 Rangers
    upgraded to pathfinders
    the pathfindes are not particularly efficient, I would cut the squad to 5 or 6 and look to spend the points on something more efective
    HS
    Wraithlord
    Brightlance and wraithsword

    Warithlord
    Brightlance and wraithsword
    [/quote]
    the wraithsword is a waste, WL are not close combat slaughterers, the lack of attacks is a problem, hence would replace the sword with EML and use these for AT.

    Wraith constructs aare the domain of craftworld eldar, again not particularly associated with the black library, although harleys historically had access to WL, but that was when they were eldar dreadnaughts

    ;o yeah i thought i would get a reaction somethin like that. thx for being honest.
    while tactically ur probably all right there but with the "not very black libraryish, i did back all that up in the link u included in ur last quote.

    anyway il go through and redo the list considering ur advice while u read the fluff

    problem is black library force is harlequins, several people have put together lists based on harleys but using codex eldar rules, may be worth looking at them, alternatley do USF.

    I put some comments in your fluff thread too.

    Sorry if it seemed a little harsh, wasnt meant to be

    ok well I did start to reply on your fluff, but I think I ditched it as it was quite critical, I gues the gist is:

    the black library is not a collective mind, although it might take the form of a craftworld, it isnt one. Its occupants and defenders are harlequins (and something else vauguely described as more powerful) it doesnt have a standing army other than harleys

    But 6 pathefinders wouldn't be enough to do much damage. 10 is actually quite noticable if you want to do some real damage.
