Used to play a bit in 3rd edition and have recently started again with Eldar. Here is a 1000pt army list which i am aiming towards. Any advice/comments will be much appreciated!!
Spirit stones,doom,eldirich storm,singing spear = 120
10 Dire Avengers
Exarch, bladestorm, shimmershield,powerweapon =162
Bright lances, Star engines =150
6 Howling Banshees
Exarch,triskele, war shout, acrobatic = 123
5 Warp Spiders
exarch, 2 death spinners,powerblades,surprise assault = 147
Starcannon, Star engines = 155
The general tactic is for the rangers and spiders to harrass the enemy whilst the waveserpent and falcon carry the rest of the army - deploy troops - finish off any tanks/heavy armour troops.
This equals 977. Take extra vehicle add ons?or re-work list to squeeze in another farseer?
I dislike eldritch storm, it is a mostly useless power and certainly not worth 20pts, consider guide, fortune or nothng instead. I also recommend taking runes of warding, as it greatly reduces the strength of greyknight lists.
Your dire avenger exarch should have weapons that fit his unit purpose, bladestorm and dual shuricats make teh unit a brilliant anti infantry unit, defend and shimmersheilds make the unit a very effective tarpit, choose one.
Also star engines are not necessary, stones are though.
Personally i loathe having starcannons on bs3 models, consider a shuricannon or scatterlaser instead.
otherwise its a pretty solid list, you dont have a lot of anti-armor or armor so that may be a problem, depending on your local area.
I love Pathfinders.
Thanks for the Advice. Very constructive As for the farseer i will probebly choose the powers depending on what sort of force i'm playing. And i will prob only use the banshees's if the force has a high armour enemys etc. Might swap them in for Scorpions and change the falcon Its a start anyway!
1)Drop BL from the serpent and give it EML. Drop StarE and give it SS!
2)Give the banshees exarch Executioner or mirror swords.
3)Drop shimmershield and power weapon from th DA unless you give the Exarch the Defend power. If not go for the doubles catapults
4)Swap the StarC. to EML/ScatterL. and give holofields to the Falcon! Drop StarE. and give it SpiritS.
5)Give your Farseer either Guide or Fortune along with Doom. Drop Eldritch Storm.
6)Surprise assault is just USELESS. Warp Spiders are jump infantry hence they can always DS. Swap it for Hit and Run.)
Ok i will take the advice on the Vehicle upgrades and dire avengers. Not sure about the banshee exarch - i see the triskele to be better than mirrorswords at least.
Also with taking a bright lance out im concerned with coming up against an armour 13/14 target which could really cause me trouble...
Thanks all the same
