Alight, I'm new to Eldar and I'm just starting to collect my force (wave serpent, dire avengers, scorpions and warlocks so far) and I'm looking to add a unit of shining spears, but I was wondering why alot of people don't seem to be using them.
To me they look awesome in that they seem to be able to fulfill a multi purpose role, firstly then can zip around the battlefield and deliver st6/8 shots to the rear of enemy vehicles, and once they are done with that they can add their support to any combat with lance charges.
Will it be a mistake to buy some?
Shining spears have a place in a lot of eldar armies but tend to only make their points back if your opponent takes a similarly high cost unit himself.
They are perfect for killing termis / DPs / battle suits / TMCs but will tend to get picked apart by more numerous enemies.
I have a unit of 5 and I do use them a good amount in my mech list.
