    Need help with 500pt friendly ranger army

    Hi, need help and advice on a 500 point ranger army:

    HQ:
    Farseer
    +witchblade
    +Guide

    Farseer
    +Witchblade
    +Doom


    Troops:

    5xRangers
    +Pathfinder upgrade

    5xRangers
    +Pathfinder upgrade


    Heavy Support:

    Fire Prism
    (need help with the upgrades of prism)


    My plan is to have my farseers and prism relitavly out in the open,while my pathfinders make advantage of their cover saves.

    While the enemy army is advancing my pathfinders will repeatedly blast them for those pin checks, with the fire prism either blasts at tanks, or if theres no tanks left, blowing big holes in infantry. The farseer duo will be guide+doom ing any unit that i dont like the look of,the blowing it to bits.

    Main opponents are Space marines and MEQs.

    Thanks in advance :yes:

    Eldar are the greatest thing besides doughnuts and meat pies

    id get rid of farseer with doom.
    then id replace the prism with 3 warwalkers with 2 EMLs each.
    then id get the farseer to guide the walkers.
    unbeleivable shooting in 500 pts
    I love Pathfinders.

    agreed, 2 HQs under 1500 is usually not the best bang for your buck points-wise. the same points could beef your troops to 3 units or 2 larger units. in the long run they will do far more damage and actually grab objectives. but HQ models do look sweet and hard to resist!

    In 500 points 2 HQs is just overkill - lose one

    Your prism needs spirit stones, holo field and vectored engines.

    You seriously need some way of holding your opponent off your guns if he is assault based, and you will get seriously outshot by non MEQ shooty armies
    Everything you have been told is a lie!

    Agreedd drop the 2nd farseer and fire prism, you dont need a fire prism at 500 points and I know its so tempting.

    warwalkers are the ideal choice and rather fluffy. But vypers and jetbikes work too.

    I would drop the farseer wth guide and then replace the Fire Prism with a falcon or warwakers as these other guys are suggesting(obviously take guide instead of doom if you opt for warwalkers). Falcons are much more resilient targets than fire prisms simply because they carry more than one useful weapon.
