Welcome to Librarium Online!
If I buy a blister do they come with the right bits for an Eldar Missile launcher? It doesn't look it and I'm not sure. If I open my blister to find out and it's not there then I wont be able to exchange it.
Does anyone know? They would suck if they didn't considering the codex has EML as an option for the weapons platforms.
Nope, it doesn't. The only way I know of getting an EML, is too order a Wave Serpent equiped with one from Forgeworld, or convert them.

No, they dont. I've already tried, and they don't take it back because they can't resell it and maybe you could have taken one of the weapons or something (quite silly really ). I bought a war walker in a blister and i needed 1 more starcannon, but because i didn't get one i went back, but they said no- only other option is to go order the weapon from GW online!If I open my blister to find out and it's not there then I wont be able to exchange it.
FROM THE BOOK OF THE IMPERIUM:
1. Thou shalt not go on a panty raid in the Adaptus Soritus temple.
2. Thou shalt not flirt with Howling Banshees. They are the enemy.
3. Thou shalt not refer to Battle Sisters as Bolter Biatches
4. Darth Vader isnâ€™t the son of Abaddon
5. Thou shalt not reassemble a Necron into a washing machine
SO let me ask. How many people actually use the EML? WHen I look at the stats on paper they seem very good. They have the best range out of all the Eldar weapons with a 48". You acn choose to shoot as a Str 8 Ap3 shot or at a Str 4 Blast with pinning. For an Alaitoc army this seems pretty good. While I'm not depending on pinning from all of the sniper fire, the pinning from EML certainly would help, especially against swarm armies with a low LD.
Anyone use EML? The problem is if I chose to incorporate them, they will take up Brightlance spots. With my current setup I would have 2 Starcannons, 2 Bright lances and 2 EMLs, not to mentiond the d3 Pulse laser shots from my falcon.
Keep in mind this would be a frozen list for a tournament. We are not allowed to change it once the league has begun.
You can order almost every weapon singly from mail order - they have missile launchers, starcannons, scatter lasers, brightlances and I think D-cannons that all fit on the standard weapon platform/wraithlord/vyper/war walker mount. Don't know if they fit on Falcons but I would assume they do.
I use an EML on a vyper in my Saim-Hann. When it hits (which isn't frequently :hmm it's usually very effective. (Y)

The trick is learning how to MAKE things fit. It is in my opinion unfair, but that is how they get you to buy more :realmad: . Remember above all else, the hacksaw is your friend. Cut off stuff and glue things on till it looks like a ML.
Where's your Baritone Saxophone?
Why bother? The EML sucks. Not only does it cost more then a bright lance it stays a S8 weapon with AP3. Compare that to a bright lance wo wipes out land speeders till land raiders with ease now compare hte skimmers and raiders with EML ou n 6's to glance!. I am willing to sacrifice that range to increase the effectines of the weapon and AP.
However with that statement out of the way, I would say listen to ArchonBjorn. He has a really good tendency to not say stupid things and give bad advice.Learn from yesterday.
Live for today
Hope for tomorrow
I use them, I have 2 (I bought a Forgeworld Wave Serpent, cut them off, then but Bright Lances in thier place) I have one on my Wraithlord (improved BS) and another in my Black Guardian Squad.SO let me ask. How many people actually use the EML?

But, have you considered placing the EMK on a Warwalker?Since Warwalkers are so fragile and they are targeted righ away, the 48 inch range on the EML lets you place the Warwalker even further back decreasing your enemies changes of targeting it. The Str 8 AP3 is still not for targetting tanks and the plasma missiles are good for pinning swarm type armies like NIds, IG and Orks. Since I am in a league that does not allow you to modify your army list, I need weapons that give me versatility and I think the EML may be a good choice. Maybe I can place it on my Wraithlord since he has a BS of 4? I was thinking of placing a BL on him, but know that I think about, the EML is not a nad option either. In either case I still need to have at least 1-2 BLs in my list. I would like the same for the EML and starcannons, but they are all taking up so many points...
I suggest reading the other army codexs before you decide what is good against them. You arent going to pin Tyranids or Orks most likely or even IG with their 10 leadership to the important squads
EML are only really good on DR exarchs, other than that you might as well take any other weapon. Blast templates arent very useful now against smart opponents, as the max you can hit if they spread out is 1 and a partial or so.
Also about the blisters, yes im pissed off too. I bought 2 support weapons and they only came with half the guns, and the heavy weapon platform only came with 2 guns. Just amazing how they give you random guns like that when its supposed to be 3 per blister. If I wanted to play random chance I'd play that stupid AD&D miniatures game
