Welcome to Librarium Online!
I know this isn't the army list section but nobodys voting there so I figured I'd come here for advice/preferences. Apology in advance to the moderators. Thanks in advance.
Theres a big 1000 point doubles tourney coming up. Everyone thinks me and my partner are bringing our daemon armies but we're going to surprise them when we show up with eldar. So here's my question which of these two lists do you guys like more, and if you like neither how would you improve upon them. I made these lists to essentially beat nurgle marines and reular SM. I expect lots of that there which is why. while at the same time being competative against every other army. so here goes
Avatar (one list will have 2 HQ's)
2X10 man ranger pathfinder units
10 man wraithguard unit with destructor spirit seer
20 guardians, with starcannon, conceal warlock
4Xholo-field, spirit stone, Fire prisms
*note we're not sharing a force org. counts as two seperate armies in regards the the double eldrad.
2X10 man wraithguard unit with destructor spirit seer
2X10 man guardian squads w/scatter laser & conceal warlock (meant to just hold objectives really.)
18XTwin linked scatter laser war walkers.
I'm not sure which I would take. I like 2 squads of pathfinders over another one of wraithguard, but I also really think that 18 war walkers is just plain sick. The one problem I can see, especially with option #2 is that your units of wraithguard will be easy to tie up in cc for the whole game, doing nothing. With that in mind, you have not very much in #2 to take on land raiders/monoliths.
Also, I've heard it said that it is often better, if possible, to put in 3 fire prisms un upgraded than 2 with upgrades. I believe one FP is 115 or 120 points, and if you take the upgrades off of both the others you have 90 points there, so pulling out one pathfinder will (almost) get you a third prism. 6 prisms > 4 ??
Hmmm....I see. It's 115 btw. The point of the wratihguard was to just be a marine killer, and minor tank hunter. But I suppose you have a point. I'll talk to my parnter about 5 fire prisms, and which he'd prefer. We need to agree on a list so the more comments the better!
2 fire prisms each Id've thought would be better. With the combined shot from them you have a dispersed shot that uses the large blast marker, wounds MEQ's on a 2, and doesn't allow armour saves, and the focused shot has S10 AP1 for taking out bigger things. I can't see the need for a third there at all, unless you're fighting massed hordes of guard or something, in which case you have 3 of the aformentioned dispersed shots.
The point of the third is that you get extra shots, and will still have 2 if one gets shot. You can even get a str 7 AP2 large blast if you are taking out a large squad of termies or something... though I'd probably just use 3 str 9 AP2 small blasts for that.
The second list for sure, the first one is just, well...its gay
Correct me if im wrong but cant you only take one Eldrad?
