Basically the club i go to is starting a tournament next week and i was looking for any advice on my current 500 points, any advice at all is greatly appreciated.
Tournament wise i think that the only restrictions are 500 with 5 points over permitted
Farseer with doom 80
5 howling banshees 102
exarch with mirrorswords
wave serpent 120
Twin linked eldar missile launcher
10 Guardians 105
10 Guardians 95
My general intention was to use the guardians to take any objectives and to act as a firebase.
The farseer would be with the banshees in the wave serpent and would move to where it was best needed. Once unloaded use the tank as cover before dooming a target and charging them.
The wave serpent would also use the EML as needed potentially targeting enemy armor or squads depending on their setup
Enemy wise i think that there will be marines, grey knights and space wolves possibly, as well as a guy who loves assault terminators (not sure if he will be able to get them in in 500 points?) nids, tau, orks, necrons
If most of what i have said here is junk then i apologise in advance, still trying to get to grips with the latest rules after several years not playing
Seems like your spending alot on a transport for a very small squad of banshees!
For the same cost you could probably get a squad of 8 Harlies + shadowseer who are untargetable outside 24", or 10 Scorps with their special rules
In my experience the Banshees do need that transport, people use them as target practice for pretty much any weaponry and win otherwise
I wish my local store had a tourny like that though! Sounds fun!
I'd ditch the Banshees. If that one Serpent gets blown up, you lose. Use things that are REALLY mean in 500 like Wraithlords, Avatars, Prisms, stuff like that. Cheap Guardians with good weapons are nice but you need some filthy power units.
Check my Blog for Battle Reports, useless ranting and more! Comments appreciated.
Like to talk Warhammer or want some advice on Armies or Tactics? Drop me a PM!
Having checked more i think that there might be more rules to the lists than i previously thought so i guess that that will mean restriction and monstrous creatures and total armour.
If this isn't the case i am now considering the following list
Farseer with guide 75
5 striking scorpions 112
exarch with shadowstrike
10 Guardians 105
10 Guardians 95
Fire prism 115
If i can't take the fire prism i would then be considering a second squad of scorpions or possibly expanding the first, also if there was no fire prism possibly giving one of the guardian squads a bright lance to try and deal with any armour.
The new plan here would be the farseer stays back and guides whatever needs it the most while the scorpions infiltrate and try to outflank to get in close and personal
Been finding out more and i can definitely take the fire prism
My one thought with this list now is am i better keeping the scorpions upgraded for infiltrate or giving the exarch a scorpion claw to try and take down armour
thanks in advance for any comments
