    Well i am relatively new to the game and have been playing daehmonhunters. Both times that I have played I played against Eldar and I like their style. I recently purchased a considerably large amount of eldar minis that consist of:

    -2 Farseers

    -2 Warlocks

    -Jainzar

    -Asurmen

    -20 Guardians with a weapons platform

    -12 Rangers

    -8 Dire Avengers

    -6 Warp spiders (including exarch)

    -7 Banshees (including exarch)

    -7 Fire Dragons (including exarch)

    -6 swooping Hawks

    -5 Dark Reapers (including exarch)

    -5 Jetbikes

    -1 Falcon Grav Tank

    -1 wraithlord

    -2 War walkers

    -1 Heavy Weapon platform

    Now I know that I should play vanilla eldar to start with and see which units I like before comitting to a craftworld, so what other units should I buy to try out? I am mostly wanting to see which aspect warriors I like because even though I havent played vanilla yet I think I will probably go with Biel-Tan when I choose a craftworld. So I was thinking about buying some striking scorpions and maybe wraithguard to see how they are. What would you suggest?

    i would suggest proxying in a few battles to see what you like. Otherwise you will waste alot of money.

    Well then please just tell me what the general consensus is on the usefulness of striking scorpions and wraithguards.

    well the things i always have in my army is banshees, dark reapers, vypers, and farseers. banshees own in cc reapers destroy anything at shooting, vypers are cheap and can either be anti tank or heavy hitting against hq squads. Farseers are just amazing. Nothing is better then their mindwar. it can kill anything.


    Edit: i prefer banshees, and wraithguard are to expensive for what they do in my opinion.

    Proxying is when you use something to represent a miniature that you don&#39;t have so you can try its rules out and see if you wanna get it.

    well invictivus, scorpions are useful for fighting low armored foes in cc. for example, eldar, dark eldar, tyranids and orks. they have a great save, and even toughness 4&#33; they can hang for a while and win a battle of attrition because they can take more hits then pretty much anything in the eldar army. they also ahve alot of attacks. they get attacks before combat beings with there mandiblasters which are aweomse because u always need a 4+ to hit witht hem, and they ALWAYS wound on a 4+ instead of using your pitiful str 3 to wound enemies.

    when i get my nids up, which will be very soon, u can borrow mine, or i could sell mine to u for cheap. i never use them. i prefer storm guardians for killing low armored tagets myself. i find socrps to get outnumbered wen fighting those kind of enemies.

    wraithguard are used for taking out REALLY high AV vehicles. they are monolith KILLERS. also high toughness opponents like talos&#39; and deamon princes. on a 6 they die. gone. instantly. even if u ahve 47 wounds, dead. (if the fail there inv save cuz the wraithcannon is ap1.)

    if i were yu. id just hold off on buying stuff. for right now, wen u play me, proxy ANYTHING. i dont care. even if u dont ahve bases u can use gum wrappers. it dont matter to me at all.

    Ok Salamander, I&#39;ll take your advice and hold off on any purchases for the time being.
