    hi,

    I have a question:

    Find you that the troops to much cost??

    I find yes and this is a roblem why I think : play I better a other army?!

    they cost 25 have power from 3 (SM's wound on 5+) and have no save in the CC (where they are the most time.

    That knows a SM must hit of 5+ and wound on 3+ and than 25 points away!!
    The harlequin hit of 3+ and wound of 5+ and than a save from 3+ for the SM's.

    SORRY WHEN YOU CAN'T READ SO GOOD MY POSTS! MY ENGLISH IS NOT SO GOOD! i'M A GERMAN EXCHANGE STUDENT! Thanks for the help despite this problem.

    Beautiful greets from your german exchange student Payron!

    yes they are expensive, but then they are powerfull, so they dont get a cover save, but they are hard to hit in the first place because of their WS, they usually hit first and hit easily, so hopefully you dont leave much standing to hit you back, if you want a damn good armour save, buy lots of thick armour (Death wing leaps to mind) but be prepared to be slow and ungainly cos you are wearing lots of thick armour

    Harlequins are the 'Elites' of the 40K universe.
    They strike fast and hard. I usualy find that if I havnt got the game pretty much won by the third or fourth turn then I lose the battle.
    With a 2000 point army, I have less than 30 minis on the board. Try matching that aganist a horde of 85+ Orks or IG!

    I had a post on Eldar online. watch this because it is scary...harlies suck.

    i believe that for 10 harlies you can have 13 khorne beserkers...maybe with khornate chain axes (not effective vs harlies but realistic)

    assuming no one charges:
    harlies chance to kill assuming they hit first. 10 harlies (2 /w kiss)
    8(3)(2/3)(1/3)(1/3) = 1+7/9
    2(3)(2/3)(5/6)(1/3) = 1+1/9
    +
    = 2+8/9

    chaos chance to whack us back (assuming 3 of them fell to the harly attack)
    10(3)(1/3)(2/3) = 6+2/3

    wow. we can kill half as many as they can kill us!! talk about fairness.

    please tell me if i did the math wrong...i would love to be wrong.

    You are wrong, harlies get 3 attacks, 4 if they charge.

    They have 2 CC weapons, and their base number of attacks are 2.

    Not to mention the fact that if Harleys were facing khorne bezerks, a Kiss would be an odd choice of special weapons when you can take power weapons

    And if you want to play that game, lets do a solitare charging a greater demon of (insert any chaos god here) from one inch away armed with river blades

    yeah. imagine a solitare charging anything! (except things that always strike first)
    maybe everything should hit a solitare on a 5+ dire avenger exarch 'defend' style. fluffwise, that fits. i want some harlequins for my eldar army! i probably won't be able to handle a pure harlequin army, so allied would be best.

    I dont think we need a special rule like that--we can already make it so theyre only hit on 6s
