    Mind War
    [135]

    Pathfinders5
    [115]

    a really dislike jetbikes so i have pathfinders and their cover save to be for objective holding and its a bit flufffy for my fleet. While skimmers and vypers will outmaneuver enemy and shoot everything in their path from distance...

    Any comments?

    Need to move to the army list section.

    Other then that...I wouldnt call this a mech army. For a mech army, almost everything would be in a transport and be moving around. obviuosly the path finders wont be moving much. On your wave serpent i wouldnt suggest vectored engines, or star engine for that matter, but mainly vectored engines. Thier only use is if you move flat out now, and i dont see that happening much anymore. star engines can be used for your dire avengers as a last minute capture of an objective.

    Vypers look fine.

    Farseer, why mind war? Guide would do much better especialy with reroll failed to hit, he can run with the dire avengers to do some massive damage when used with blade storm.

    And the heavies look good.

    I believe you have each pathfinders squad listed as 5 pts cheaper than they really are. Provinding everything else is correct you are 10pts over 1,500.

    In a list like this I really don't think that banshees and their falcon escort are so neccessary. With the points you spent on an upgraded falcon and banshees plus an exarch you could have a much more effective unit. For instance a filled out spider squad (which more sticks with the theme) or for more cc purpose some striking scorpions. they can come in from a table edge and help prevent your pathfinders from getting charged. I know the latter suggestion doesn't fit with the army as well but I don't think that you can protect your pathfinders appropriately with a dimished squad of Banshees. Maybe a filled out squad on foot, or some harlequins w/shadow seer. I know these are not mech but neither are the pathfinders. For a super mech cc unit take some shining spears. Fast, powerful, rarely used by most players (which has its benefits as they might be underestimated by your enemy).

    Hope it helps,

    How about replacing the pathfinders with guardian jetbikes?

    i know i should put this topic elsewhere but didnt see it at that time.

    2 Shiz_Vaerth...thanx i didn`t notice that....

    2 wakkawakka...the pathfinders are there for anticipation of enemy movement....it is the only real target i wanna give while skimmers flying around...i really dislike avengers so they are for last minute capture or some shooting when needed...but i think the vectored engines you mentioned could be removed...i dont know why i put them on it...and the farseer is supporting banshees in falcon for some cc finnishing or something...i just thing if yopu play falcon you have to use its transport capabilites

    2 tikidude92...yeah may be ok to replace falcon with banshees for spiders, but then i would have problem with farseer...i know he isnot made for cc but when i play her, she always performs so great i really doubt autarch would do the same...i played autarch a bit but he was just terrible...

    ArtificiallyEnhanced...i really dislike eldar jetbikes....they would make the list better i think but i despise them
    hmmm..i wanted something more but now i cant think of anything...

    Why don't you like the jetbikes? Is it the models or do you just not like the way they play?
