Welcome to Librarium Online!
Well, since today I'm going to go start my Eldar army I just have one question:
Okay, I'm going to buy one Eldar Guardians battle squad pack, and since I just have enough money for another model under 14 dollars, I was wondering what I should get. I was thinking of getting the Farseer, but if there's something else I should buy I'll probably change it. Suggestions?
BTW I'm Canadian so here is a link to the shop which shows Canadian prices for units.
Honest way to go,
save up for a battleforce.. just comes with enough to live and kill.
but if your going small,
get a box of guardians,
box of guardians
possibly craftworld eldar if your interested in them..
from here on.. it depends on what kind of army oyu would want to play hah.
just tell me.. here, or PM, and i can help you.
Rangers i say because u dont need many 2 start a squad
Well that was fun
You will probably need one box of defenders, a farseer and a blister pack of rangers and eldar codex later after you have maybe 1,000 points and have played a few games buy the Craftworld eldar codex. Thats a good way to start. make sure your farseer has a witchblade not a singing spear.
sorry i stuffed up
The farseer is the best wya to go you will need a HQ in most of the batlles. (Except thigns liek 40k in 40minutes) so you will need to buy a farseer later on if you buy somethign else now. Also a good way to go (Wat I did.)
-2 weapon platforms to put in my guardian squads.
(So now you got 2 groups of 8 guardians with 2 crewman in it and 1 platform)
-Bought several farseers for mmy friend but you will need just 1 I think.
-Went for a Wraithlords no matter wich opponent your facingthis guy wont let you down that often. (or get a falcon also really good one of the best tanks in the game imo)
After that I sugegst taking one squad of CC units like striking scorpions or banshees.
And after that see wat fits your style I bought dark reapers because they are just awsome at my store. I face alot of 3+ save armies so those reapers get almost always there points back.
I DIDN'T buy the codex and craftworld codex because I borrowed one from m yfriend for a couple of hours. I got a photograpic memory and therefor I dotn need to buy the codexes . (Yeah advantage! woohoo XD)
But you will probaly need it and therefor it hsould be one of the first things on your list. The codex makes it alot easier to choose your untis so be sure to learn everything in the codex. Download also the eldar faqs from the official games workshop site. (it is legal to say it right?). for the rest it all up to you most ppl choose something caleld a craftworld its just a chapter and will give you nice advantages but also disadvantages. Just ask around a bit on the forums and look on home made sites tactics. And you should be able to play eldar in a month or 2 without that much effort to bash your opponents to death with your units ^^.
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
Anywya i've decided to buy the Codex and the Battleforce set. My brother is also going to buy an army so we'll be spillting the price. Thanks for the help.
battleforce is really helpful.
it can get you some serious killing.
after this, get a farseer, as you need an hq for a normal battle.
but since your new, i believe you can just let it pass
if not, play a patrol mission ^_^
and good luck with your army!
