Welcome to Librarium Online!
i was wondering if my other fine librarium users could help me expand from 500-1k points.
this is the eventual 2.5k list i want to build up too:
this is the current 500 point list i have(note there's war walkers cause the first draft of the above list had war walkers, so i went and bought two):
Farseer- 80 pts
5 Dire Avengers- 212 pts
Exarch, Dual Shruiken Catapults, Bladestorm, Wave Serpent, Twin-Linked Eldar Missile Launcher
5 Pathfinders- 120 pts
Eldar War Walker- 85 pts
Twin-Linked Eldar Missile Launcher, Spirit Stones
now i'm trying to expand with units that A.) will be on my final 2.5k list and B.) out of the units i already have. those units are:
autarch on jetbike, 5 more dire avengers, 18 guardians with their platform made into an eldar missile launcher, and a 2nd war walker.
obviously if i absolutely should buy new units first i can, since they'll be in my ending list anyway, but i'd like to expand with those units i have.
so yeah, any tips would be appreciated ^.^
Replace those EML to shuriken cannons or scatter lasers.
As for using ur models you have and getting to 1000, use the 2nd war walker and add scatters to it. Then get a 3rd one and add scatters to it. Add the 5 DA to the existing squad. add spirit stones to the wave serpent. Remove spirit stones from war walker. Im not sure what points you will have left, but from there you add a 2nd power, runes of warding, and spirit stones to your farseer.
Eldar -APOC- 6500 Points
Chaos Daemons -Fate Crusher- 3500 Points
Grey knights - 1000 Points
I don't have a lot of time to make comments about how to expand your list - just noticed something in the 500pt. War Walkers, unlike Wave Serpents and Wraithlords, do NOT have twin-linked heavy weapons. You put two EMLs on (which is a great idea, btw), you have two shots.
I have recently built up my army, after spending what is probably rediculous amounts of money and I dont really want to stop and add it all up so I can perhaps offer you some advice about what to buy to help start your self off as I found myself lacking certain elements when I starting buying stuff. You really get to feel what your army is missing when playing with it.
Right first of all I'd say is that Eldar need to kill what ever they hit before it has a chance to strike back so Howling Banshees are a good way to go as they always strike first.
Eldar is a very shooty army having some of the best weapons in the entire game being able to be added to many a squad and even their tanks. Wave serpents are a good example of this so make sure to buy a ranged unit or two to soften up your opponents as they approach. Fire Prisms and Dark Reapers are exceptional at this. Dark Reapers can eat through space marine armour and slice through all but the toughest hides of Monsterous creatures. Only down side to the Dark Reapers is that they have to stay in one spot but if you get them a good spot then they will be practically untouchable.
Warwalkers are a great units and I wished I had built up with them sooner than I had. A squad of three of them can shoot 6 bright lance shots or 24 yes 24 scatter laser shots and combine that with guide from a farseer then you have a very potent mix. (Little tip, if you give a farseer a warlock body guard give one of the warlocks embolden, only 5pts, and you get to re-roll your leadership tests including the ones you use to cast phychic spells. Pretty cool huh?) War walkers can be equipped with all manor of weapons so can be extremely versatile and cheap! 3 warwalkers with 6 scatter lasers, 90pts! Great for hordes or weakly armoured vehicles. You hit a terminator squad with this you are bound to take several out regardless of their 2+ armour save.
I can go on and on about different units, I am fairly new to the game myself but the best way to learn how to build up your army is to use them against other armies and youll see what your missing from your army.
Remember! Dont let your opponent hit you back. Eldar are too weak and in too few numbers to handle a decent counter attack so keep moving, dont let you oponents pin you down and keep blasting them till they cry for mercy! Then run in and slice them to pieces with your banshees and Avatar.
