Hiya, I'm having trouble with Deathwing (Blood Angels). Please tell me I'm not the only one, and that I have a chance of actually being able to counter it.
Here's my current 1,500 List (Kind of)
Unless I'm seriously wrong you need Doom and Fortune in a BIG way vs Deathwing. Any re-rolls I can get is a win, right?
I find that if I can put these in buildings and get a 2+ cover save its a win. Much better than field Dire Avengers who, even with bladestorm, are struggling to take anything out with a 2+ save. Rending is the way forwards? Also good for holding objectives?
10x Dire Avengers
+ Power weapon + shield
(In Wave Serpent + T-L Shuriken Cannon)
Total: 262 (Inc. Serpent)
Surely a must in any Eldar army? Don't really see the point in boosting the weapons on the serpent, I wanna do a lot of moving, I think?
10x Fire Dragons
+ Fire Pike
+ Crack Shot
+ Tank Hunter
(In Wave Serpent: T-L Shuriken Cannon)
Total: 300 (Inc. Serpent)
Think this is fairly standard. AP2 is a must, good vs vehicles and terms. Only issue is it's a pricey unit. Should I break it in two? (problem is only have 2 Serpents?)
Standard for all Eldar Armies, right. Except I've never had much luck with it, and I don't have another Prism to add to join shots? Is it worth it just fielding one?
+ Bright Lance
NEED AP2! And good in close combat and vs vehicles. (I don't know if guide might help here? One shot of Lance and 2 of Cannons, not guaranteed on 3+ to hit)
+ Pulse laser
+ Scatter Laser
This is currently a replacement for second Prism (I don't have 2) I have played it as a transport a couple of times (to use as Wave Serpents I don't have), and it's not too bad... But only being able to transport 6 Units is an issue, and not much shooting if I move.
This leaves me with 102 points to play with. (1398 altogether)
I've got spare:
Dark Reapers (5), Howling Banshees (12), Guardians + HWS (20 ), Farseer (1), Autarch - on a bike (1), Fire Dragons (4) and Warlock (3)
Any help would be great please guys. Also, any thoughts on investments would be good! Need all the help I can get! Thanks!
Drop some options and take some banshees (exarch with executioner) in falcon. that will give you more power weapons to kill those pesky termies. Or more fire dragons. But banshees with the doomseer is ok.
you do not have a lot of options in models so not really think a better advice.
dunno about fortune. what you want to get rerolls against? in CC all eldar stuff dies with deathwing except banshees if the girls manage to kill the termies before they swing their fists.
i do not have a lot of experience against deathwing but i do not feel threatened at all of them
