Welcome to Librarium Online!
my friends and i play 1000 point 1 vs 1 vs 1 battles and i just cant decide on a set "list" to use for these battles.
there are just so many choices and options and upgrades to choose from.
5 dire avengers
10 striking scorpions
10 harlequins including shadowseer/troup master/death jester
10 guardians including support weapon
5 dark reapers
6 fire dragons
5 warp spiders
1 wave serpent
1 war walker
i can never decide what to include. i want to use everything. my friends use space marines and sisters of battle, so i try to bring as much low AP stuff as i can.
any input is appreciated!
Against a shooty SM army, you're going to have trouble. Even with the Eldar's fleet rule, footslogging across a field taking all manner of shots along the way isn't the quickest course to victory.
To be perfectly honest, you probably can fit most of those into a 1000 points list.
The only thing I'd say is take the Fire Dragons for definite. You're going to need something capable of taking out the vehicles that MEQ armies are likely to send your way.
I'd love to be more helpful, but my eyes are killing me 'cause I lost my glasses and it's horribly distracting.
interesting you say that.
i havent even got close to losing yet. i mean, on a retarded scale. we have done 2k point games and ive come out on top to such a degree that i only lost a couple MODELS, not units.
right now my friends are pretty much hating playing me, cause im mopping up every game. im a smart aggresive player. im not perfect by any means, but i work hard and it shows. i research everything i can to make me a better player.
so far im 7-0-1, with my loss coming from a capture and control mission where i played stupid and didnt get back to my capture point before the last turn.
If buying a second Eldar battleforce is at all an option I'd go for it, then you could round out your dire avengers and give them a wave serpent, as well as having 2 war walkers to play around with (I doubt you'd need the 2nd 10 man unit of guardians for 1000 pts)
If that isn't an option, I am thinking eldrad + 5 warlock seer council would be really nice, coupled with all 3 squads of troops, the reapers, and the fire dragons in the wave serpent. If you can throw in the Avatar he'll be very handy.
