    hmmm.......... why guardians?

    Sorry I just think that eldar kill teams work best with a squad of aspect warriors with their exarch. Fire Dragons or Scorpions are ok. (banshees tend to be the best)

    Mmm, personally I'm not sure, a Kill-Team toting a weapons platform just doesn't seem very - err- stealthy like?

    I'm thinking Warlock with a mix of Rangers, Scorpions and maybe a single Dark Reaper for heavy support?

    Don't count on that working. Starcannon won't kill entire goon squads in one turn, and generates Klaxon (spelling?) counters. Pretty soon, you'll be swamped in close combat. 2 good attacks that don't cut armor won't save you then.

    Forgot the Shuriken Catapults? 16 shots IS going to hurt.
    The idea is that the starcannon softens enemies up at long range and the Shuriken
    catapults finish the of at close. Plus it doesnt break many rules.
    Oops, i missunderstood the characteristics(spelling?) of the witchblade, i thought it ignored
    saves. By the way, can yhe unit be black guardians with bs4?




    p.s. vorlon, doesnt that many squads break many mutable rules?

    16 shots at a very short range. Soon, they'll all be charging you at once, and then, since you can only shoot at one at a time, you're going to end up mobbed in cc. But try it out, I could be wrong.
    Sure, make them black. You're Ulthwe and there's no disadvantage...

    Yeah, vorlon, your squad would probably double the number of goon squads you're fighting. Too much variety will kill you.
    Personally I prefer just a banshee squad, w-exarch.

    Eldar = Kill Team

    7 Howling Banshees (Elites) @ [157] Pts
    Power Weapon; Shuriken Pistol; Banshee Mask

    1 Exarch @ [45] Pts
    Power Weapon; PowerBlades; Shuriken Pistol; Banshee Mask
    Acrobatic

    Models in Army: 8
    Total Army Cost: 157


    Don't know if this would be effective. I don't just want to play to win, but I also don't want to loose all the time. I think the biggest problem with my Banshee Kill Team is that I can't really add Rewards and Kill Team Special Stuff.

    Is this a good team to use?

    I think the most Eldar-esque Kill Team would be a mixture of Striking Scorpions and Storm Guardians with a Warlock.

    The Scorpions kill any interference, the Storm Guardians carry the necessary equipment for the mission, while the Warlock assists the Team, maintains the team's Webway Portal and maintains communication with the Farseer.

    This is the Kill-Team I used in a recent campaign, It was also near the only time the Iyanden took the field without any Wraith Units.

    Other than that, I think a very cool Kill Team would be a squad of Shining Spears. They would swoop in, killing everything in their path and with a single, surgical strike, cripple the enemy. That's what Shining Spears are supposed to do.
