Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hello, I,m starting with space elves and thought a combat patrol list would be a good place to start. Any thoughts and advise appreciated.
5 DA w/ exarch 2 shuriken and bladestorm
10 guardians w/ ML
war walker w/ 2 scatter laser
p.s alaitoc themed so pathfinders/rangers are a must. cheers
OK so if pathfinders are a must then leaving them alone
DA- to be really effective, the numbers need to be higher (you pay a fixed price for bladestorm but its effect is tied to the size of the unit)
Guardians - not that brilliant nowerdays, particularly without a warlock, as above, they have a bad BS so dont give them singel shot weapons, Scatter lasers, star cannon and shuriken cannon are favourites really and personnaly I would stay away from star cannon, gives you average of one dead target per turn, just lacks efficiency.
war walker is fine
reapers remain the most lethal minis agaisnt MEQs so would be nice to see them in
but ultimatley, for combat patrols eldar are best aiming for 3 units, more than that and you tend to spread yourself too thin, in this list the first thing I would drop would be the guardians, use the points to bulk out the DA
the next thing I would certainly consider is the walker, it will get one round of shooting if you are carefull, after that his missile launcher or heavy weapon of choice wil ltend to take it out, hence I would be dubious, better to drop it and add the above reaper squad (3-4 reapers) but that does leave you light with AT
Everything you have been told is a lie!
