    Your Core Unit.

    So I was a little bored and decided to make a thread. So tell me people what is the core unit in your army that you just can't do without in ANY game you play?

    Just for arguements sake I am excluding Wave Serpents since they are a Dedicated Transport. The Rule is for it to count towards this poll it must take up a slot in the Force Organisation Chart.
    I have put a good number of choices in the poll that I suspect will be the only ones chosen and a couple of unlikely choices, but if you feel that there is a unit not in the list that you feel is essential to your cause then I have placed an 'Other' choice and please state what that unit is in a post.

    Can't write an army list without having a Farseer/Eldrad Ulthran (with WarlockBodyguard) in there somewhere, mainly because I like Ulthwe over the other Craftworlds, plus they're generally awesome. Number 1 port of call for me.

    What no Night Spinners?
    Well I pretty much always use Fire Dragons and Night Spinners.
    At the beginning of turn 1, I spray my opponent's army with the bacon flavored spray. Then I unleash my Boston Terrier Squiggoth who then devours their entire bacon flavored army! There is no defense against her cuteness! All are doomed!

    Forgot about Night Spinners when I was writing the list but thats why I put that 'OTHER?' option in there. I pretty much expect this poll to come down to 3-4 units and be surprised if anything else is voted for.

    Nothing competitive any way. In friendly games I go through phases of what units I build my lists around but there is always 1 out of what I suspect will be the top 4 units in this poll. Farseers, Fire Dragons, Dire Avengers and Fire Prisms.
    I'm just interested in knowing which of these 4 are the most important to other players.

    My beloved Eldar force, I'll judge your roster core. I appreciate your concern, You're gonna think and learn. Rep me... rep me, my friend.

    If you read my intial post then you'll read I didn't include wave serpents because they are Dedcicated transports and since units you take are able to take them as part of that slot on the FOC it wasnt nessessary to include them in poll. This poll is all ablout the units you take that take up a slot on the FOC.

    To be clear if you had put wave serpents up as an option, that's what would have won. I think many Eldar lists are a bunch of wave serpents, and then we decide to put something or other in them.

    Anyway I picked "seer council" to mean a squad of warlocks backed up by a farseer as the two complement each other so strongly.
