Hi! I'm new to warhammer and eldar really interest me i want to try and start with a 500 point force what should i get?
a farseer and some guardians look good maybe a vehicle or two?
Thanks - Gabby.
Welcome to warhammer!
Have you decided what kind of theme you want to use, i.e Ulthwe, Biel Tan, etc. or if you want a theme at all?
A farseer will definatly fit in with what ever you want, but if you want a Biel Tan list you might want to go for Dire Avengers instead of guardians. The guardians however would fit into a Ulthwe themed army fine. I'm not sure about the vehicles in a 500pt list because you will spend at least a fifth of your points on that 1 vehicle(unless you get war walkers, as they are cheaper).
well yea. i really believe in dire avengers over guardians. but you're gonna need two troop choices. so maybe both? and i HIGHLY recommend war walkers. look at the codex to start you off.
theres some sets there to consider.
also, remember that eldar is very specific at what it does. certain units are unbeatable in their areas of expertize while horrible in other areas.
keep this in mind, and buy what you need to fit your playing style.
New Eldar Army 1W-0L-0D
You could also fit in a vyper. They are very cheap when armed with a shuriken cannon or scatter laser, and could serve well for denying objectives to the opponent in the last turn. They can also work well for hitting enemy vehicles in their rear armor.
Some aspect squads would probably help you out too.
Hope it helps.
