    500 pt tournament

    Hi All

    First post here! Go easy please =)

    My friends and I are having a mini tournament, 500 points, and so far my luck with eldar has been so so. Im still getting used to playing them, as I originally collected Necrons!! Completely different world!!

    Anyway, Im looking for some advice on a 500pt army to enter to this tournament, I will be facing Space Wolves, Dark Angels, Tau, Imperial Guard, Orks..... so a big mix of things to fight.

    Any input would be great thank you.

    Im looking for a one army fits all but with Eldar im learning quickly that thats a bit harder than I thought!

    Thank you

    Adam

    Avatar and Wraithlord.. Didnt think of that to be honest xD

    What would be best to kit the wraithlord out with do you think? I hear wraithlord strengths lay in its shooting capability?

    Im only just starting with eldar, (by starting i mean i have a codex, wraithlord and battleforce, unmade) so its probley best to ask someone else, in my list thread, i got advised to give them Bright lances, so mabey that, not sure if it would be worth it in 500pts

    Might be a good idea to deal with my friends IG. I think he is going to bring Tanks in a 500pt game to ruin everybody's day. Haha, so a Wraithlord with brightlance(s) should make short work of it!

    Two Bright Lances is still one on the wraithlord, its just twin linked for rerolls. If hes going to be fielding a few tanks in 500 point games and by a few I mean 2 at the most, take a singing spear on your farseer, if you bring Guardian Defenders put them with a warlock with a singing spear. 'Lords are a bit overkill in 500 point games, I'd bring one for a 750 at the least. 5 Firedragons cost you a wonderful 80 points and will crack open a Land raider in short time, consider bringing those in if you're certain hes fielding a tank/mech heavy list.

    Thanks for the input. I have fire dragons sitting there in my box, never actually used them. Didnt realise they were so cheap? I imagine they would get shot to death before they could do anything useful =(

    This tournament has turned into a campaign risk style, with basically each territory giving +50pts to spend on an army. So Id need something to give me an early advantage!

    Any ideas for a good 500-600 point (depending if i can take the two neutral territories next to me) build that will get me off to a good start?

    I considered putting a brightlance on the guardian weapon platform but a starcannon might be better against meqs.... but the scatter laser would work nicely against the orks and IG I will be facing..

    Argh! Decisions!
