I was just posting in the Dark Eldar thread and I mentioned Alaitoc. After reading the 5th ED book a few times, I'm pretty sure that Alaitoc got a REAL boost since sniper weapons also count as Rending now. I used to have 1500pts of Alaitoc, with lots and lots of Rangers (I loved the idea of having an army of sniper rifles). I know theres a new Eldar codex out, but I have no idea about it, or how Eldar have changed.
I WAS thinking of rebuilding my Alaitoc army, but that will come AFTER I've finished my Dark Eldar. But since this is the Eldar area, could someone please inform me of how much better or worse Alaitoc are now?
Rangers are pretty awesome in the new rules set. A player at my local store spams 3 batches of 8 and they shred the opponent's expensive stuff. He also brings 3 bright lance EML wraithlords. These fit nicely in with the alaitoc theme and do a significant amount of damage to tanks. Pretty much, yeah alaitoc is looking like the new eldar cheese army... Still an awesome army to collect with great models and conversion opportunities.

The problem with rangers is when you have to capture rather than just hold on to objectives. In a game with 3 objectives you could have one near your deployment zone but the other two could be miles away. Infiltrate could be used but could leave the ranger unit dangerously exposed to a combat they are unsuited for.

Well, the first thing you need to know is that with the new codex Alaitoc lost all its special rules, no more disruption tables and no more extra troops choices.
Everything I have told you, even this, is a lie.
