Welcome to Librarium Online!
I commonly play an Eldar player, and he has a Wraithlord, and getting another.
What would be the best way to take it out, considering its Initiave is 4, str 10, toughness 8 and armour save of 3+
Id say tankbustas or Kannons (shell)
Share your views on what is best.
all your units that can should have nobz with powerclaws anyways so it wont last long in combat with any of your units, it might even scare him into not charging at all
as for shooting it down just use something like loota's, their sheer amount of shots with decent strength can take it down easily
If I'm not mistaken, it doesn't have an invulnerable save, right? Rokkits and kustom mega blastas will blow it away then.
Tankbustas would be a problem, since the Eldar are filled with skimmers and the wraithlord isn't a vehicle. It's very difficult to keep the tankbustas from seeing vehicles when there's some on the field. I'd use rokkit buggies, rokkit koptas, or killa kans with kustom mega blastas.
Of course, powerklaws work well too, but the unit will certainly take a bit of damage first. If it's a large mob of boyz, it probably won't matter though.
So rokkits, kustom mega blastas, and powerklaws are the way to go. Good luck!
Cheers, I'll get some lootas when I move on to 1,500 points along with 6 killa kans
In the Killa Kan kit, do you get any kustom mega blasters? if not, how can I display it on the model?
yea lootas will take wraithlords down, for the KMB on the kan, just don't glue on the bullet magazine and try something like a clipped Marine or Guard Flamer/heavy flamer fuel tank to the big shoota, and there ya go, Kustom Mega Blasta
They'll admittedly be a little small, but it's a LOT cheaper than buying them retail. If you're really set on buying them retail, I'd only buy 2 or 3, and then see how much you like them before investing more money in them.
.. And in turn i agree with Grax, try out 1 mob of kanz before you get 6, if your gonna roll with 6 Kanz you might as well talior the army around them, which would in turn mean alota foot mobs behind them, but if your gonna roll around half your boyz on trukks, the kans might not be your most favorite option.
Orks might not be the brightest but a Wall with nothing behind it is near useless
