Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm pretty new to 40K (esp. 5th edition), and new to Eldar, and am trying to build something that is fairly competitive for a campaign at work. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I'm going for an Yme-Loc army - not that there is much info on them, but I like the colour scheme, and I like the idea of a lot of vehicles. So far the list is:
6 Howling Banshees w/ Wave Serpent - TL Scatter Lasers, TL SCat & Spirit Stones
2 War Walkers w/ Scatter Laser & SC
Farseer (Doom, Guide, Stones) w/ 10 DA inc. Exarch w/ Bladestorm in Wave Serpent - TL Scatter Lasers, TL SCat & Spirit Stones
6 Fire Dragons in Wave Serpent - TL Scatter Lasers, TL SCat & Spirit Stones
3 Guardian Jetbikes
Pretty light on troops (9 KP) - the idea is the WSs all rush up, everyone hops out and does their job (FD Anti tank, DA anti infantry, HB anti MEK/GEK, FS Guides DAs and Dooms whoever makes the most sense) all the while unleashing a hail of S6 Scatter Laser fire, and hopefully not dying. War Walkers Outflank, and Guardian Jetbikes go in reserves and hopefully swoop in last minute to sit on an objective.
That's the idea anyways. Thoughts?
nice list but i would drop the scatter lazers on the serpents in favor of shurken cannons that way you can max out your banshee squad!
Hope my advice helps and good luck!
Fairly good list.
Just pray you wont get horde nids. Anything that wont have a 50+ body count you have a fair chance. Good list altogether and about the sca laser it depends on your playstyle, what do you want? A couple of extra shots (you can shot 12 further with them) or a couple of close combat kills (I love banshees they make perfect power armor openers^^) Good luck
Hey guys - thanks a lot for the replies - very helpful.
I will likely be playing against some Daemon Hunters (boo!), Space Wolves (even bigger boo!), a bunch of IG, some generic marines, and a bunch of Ork players.... no Tyranids at the moment.
I was a bit worried about the range on the shuriken cannons... thought they are a fair bit cheaper - I could go ahead and max out the banshees as advised... also I'm not sure the bikes will be much use - I basically put them in because they were cheap, satisfied the troop requirement, and could rush in last minute for an objective grab / contest.... but I'm wondering if it might be better to throw in a foot-slogging group of guardians with something decent (another Scatter?) on the platform.
I kind of like the scatters on the WS, as the TL helps temper the crappy BS add that with the range and the extra shots, and I should score quite a few S6 hits... especially since there will likely be at least one doomed unit on the table to pummel.
