    Hey,

    With the last 4 armies I've "decided" to do failing, I finnally think I've got the one I like so I'm wondering if this is good?

    1 Farseer
    4 Warlocks (Go with farseer)
    10 Wraithguard
    2 Wraithlord

    Now I need advice on what else to get. :hmm:


    Thanks

    #1. y have 4 warlocks?!? when i play, they just sit around and do nothing. 4 warlocks is 2 more than u need, thats like $14 that could be used for sumthing else

    #2. are the 10 wraithguard 1 squad?? make it 2 squads of 5. (important!- if u already have the warlocks, assign each wraithguard squad a warlock, it reallly helps)

    #3. o yeah-wat u should get-hmmm-stricking scorpians might help for anti-tank, shininng spears realy help for flanking the enemy, falcons are always a useful, too.

    #4 just a tip-when you play, try to get your opponent to play with as much cover as possible, with 12'' guns, those wraithguard might take a couple turns to let them dish out some damage

    #5 plz dont suck! eldar players are supposed to own the battlefield

    #6 really pay attention to the stats of what ur buying, for example, when i first started an eldar army, i got some guardians. Sure they are supposed to be he infantry of eldar, but they kinda suck really badly. wriathguard, onthe other hand have S5, T5!!!! i mean come on those are awesome stats! with the 3+ armor save, our enemies will have a hard time killing these things. they each cost 35 points, so dont think that maxed-out squads are the best. - iyandenrools

    no really they are awesome. remember-the eldar are good at somethings-speed, aspect warriors, and HQ. remember that eldar armies shouldnt be speailized on long range shoot-em-up armies. If you fight tau, ur screwed. no, really! PPPSSS.())()()()()-- ELDAR NEED STRATEGY! DONT JUST RUSH EM, TRY TO THINK WHEN PLAYING!!!!!!!

    Thats a pretty ignorant statement. guardians are awesome in the hands to experienced and good eldar players. with a statement like that, u seem not to be. with a 5+ cover save (warlocka nd conceal) heavy weapon that can move and fire, and 2 shots a pop, guardians can be devastating. 1 squad fo guardians and star cannon can devastate a marine squad.

    alrighty, i just recently started iyanden so i will toss in my 2 copper peices worth, i would say to get at least 15 wraithguard, so you can have 2 squads in wave serpents aand one on fott, i woud say buy and/or convert 2 wave serpents. get a total of 3 wraithlors, and finally just a few aspect warriors, i would sugest reapers and banshees. and finally iyanden have trouble with horde armies, so i would pick up some support weapons, shadow weavers and d cannons are nice due to the templates

    My brother plays Tau, so I was thinking. How about some swooping hawks and warp spiders? Also, can I paint them brown and blue? :blink:

    This better?

    Farseer (2 warlocks with him)
    5 Warpspiders (With exarch)
    5 Wraithguard (1 warlock)
    5 Wraithguard (1 warlock
    5 Swooping hawks (With exarch)
    5 Dark reapers (with exarch)

    Sound good?

    Also? Should I get wraithlord for this army? And should I get Wave serpents?

    Thanks. I&#39;ll post an army list in the army list section soon.

    are you kidding me?&#33;?&#33; no wraithlords :blink:
    take 3 man . Also the warp spiders are a good idea although maybe you&#39;d be better with reapers. As with warpspiders you run the risk of getting them into the enemy before the rest of your heavy hitters (wraithguard and wraithlord) which could be a problem as your oppenent might gang up on them. I dont know tho as i play ulthwe but i definately wudnt take those hawks instead maybe take some banshees? or striking scorpians in a serpent.

    well for that list he can only ahve 2. but yea. are you kidding me ?&#33;&#33;? lol. Wraithlords as troop choices, what more could u ask for and u still dont take advantage of it&#33; lol. but yes i think u got it. the warlock in the serpent give him enhance and the warlock with the squad on foot give him conceal.
