I'm low on money so this next purchase may be my last one. I tossing up whether to add Scorpions or Pathfinders to the list.
- Eldrad Ulthran - 210pts (attached to Dire Avengers)
- 10 Guardians, EML, Warlock, Spiritseer, Singing Spear, Conceal. - 139pts
- 10 Dire Avengers, Exarch, Diresword & Pistol, Bladestorm. - 157pts
- Wraithlord, EML, Brightlance, TL Flamer. - 155pts
Total = 671
- 5 Pathfinders. - 120pts (791 total)
- 6 Striking Scorpions, Exarch, Scorpion Claw, Shadowstrike. - 133pts (804 total)
Pathfinders will sit in cover or on an objective and snipe, doing damage to elites, causing pinning, while the rest of the army goes and does whatever will cause the most damage.
Scorpions will infiltrate and do the most damage they can. Vehicles, command squads, heavy weapon/devastator squads, or just plough through the regular infantry. Anything.
with the way your list is built right now the scorpions will give you a nice CC punch that you need. For balance I would go for scorpions and give your avengers a wave serpent. I assume the list total would be 1000 pts.
Most Notable Achievements:
Killed a Revenant Titan in one shot.
Killed 900 pts worth of Blood Angels in 2 turns while only loosing 4 pts.
Scorpions for sure... When i use pathfinders i find they never crack enough of a punch at all. You should create a lot more damage with scorpions, and you definitely need some CC in there
I tossed up vibro-cannons for a while, but with my list they would only be used for area denial while the rest of the army does it's thing. Not worth $50 a platform.
I've played a heap more games and I've realised my need for more troops. To this end I've added another squad of Dire avengers to the equation. I'd run the exarch with bladestorm and two catapults for general shooting goodness.
The decision is now between DA's and Scorpions. DA's would add another excellant troops choice to my list. But the scorps would give me infiltrating MEQ CC punch. So the question is: Would the scorps be effective enough to allow me to get by with the troops I've got? And would they bring more of a punch than another squad of Dire avengers?
Keep in mind that DA's have the same statline as Scorps. Just with different wargear, lesser armour and fleet. The scorps would also be infiltrating alone, and would be cut off from support from the rest of my army while facing the full fury of my opponent.
And once again, this will probably be my last purchase, the army needs to work with what it has after this.
Eldar -APOC- 6500 Points
Chaos Daemons -Fate Crusher- 3500 Points
Grey knights - 1000 Points
