what squad/tank/thing is the best against necrons/spacemarines (normal armies with monolithes and land raiders)
i think fire prisms are best against these armies
but fire dragons also good a gainst such armies
y falcons, i mean give em star cannon but alot of vypers would be way better with starcannons
I like Falcons for anti-infantry work. With a fully kitted out Falcon, you can put out a storm of shots. A pair of fire prisms nicely rounds out the anti-tank/anti-horde of MEQ department with railgun equivalent blasts and anti-MEQ large templates.
Vibro cannon. 3 best gun in the game, best eldar gun hands down.
Throttles vehicles (say bye bye monolith), pins units, and hits 2-6 units at a time.
Plus it doesn't need LOS=) And is best twin linked (100 pts). And has good range.
Other nice options would be EMLs, Pathfinders, fire dragons, banshees, and autachs.
Falcons are great at VP denial, but suck at hurting anything. Yes, you have the potential of killing 7 marines, but even average dice will only kill 2. for 240 or so points...
16,000+ of Eldar (only need flyers)
7,000+ of Nids (want heirophant)
6,000+ of Space Marines (need rever titan)
4,400+ of Cygnar (all models for the faction)
1,500+ of Legion (just started)
Pathfinders are really good against these armies, as are dark reapers, for a static army that is.
For more fun play fire dragons, harlequins and shining spears instead.
The avatar is also very good against these armies, but he is against anything.. :yes:
Currently painting and playing Waaaaagh Bigtoof 40k and Aeronautica Imperialis.
Hmmm I would say dark reapers are the best choice for taking out SM and Necrons, that is, of course thier basic troops, a squad of 4 with an exarch wielding a tempest launcher and fast shot :w00t:
Me, Ambivalent? Well, yes and no.
Best squad would have to be the reapers.
Best single tank would be the falcon, kitted out with a starcannon or even a BL moving 6" a turn can, unleash a good ammount of high strenght low ap shots.
other units that are effective are walkers, fire prisims, D-cannons(short ranged, yes but can create a suitable dead zone that not many marine squads will want to go into willingly.)
But all of these depend on the style of play.
Reapers are the best choice against marines and 'crons but im not a big fan because that's just wasting Eldar's speed, also a lot of eldar's anti tank abillity apart from dragons (if you include harlies and singing spears thats a different story but they're not really reliable) come from heavy support unless you go for lance serpents when in the end you might as well buy another falcon.
Anyway if you want the best chance of winnin buy the reapers, if you want a very mobile or 'eldar' eldar army go for the falcons and vypers. Good Luck buddy
