hey guys, i was just scanning the forum and i noticed that most of the things on here are us putting down our own army! so i thought! why not poast a thread for the good side of Eldar! So what are YOUR favorite points about the Eldar army? all replies are appreciated! :lol:
Falcons with holo-fields and spirit stones taking 20 Lascannon shots
Star Cannons and watching power armored models melt into slag
Howling Banshees and watching power armored models die like guardsmen
Striking Scorpions and watching guardsmen die in even bigger droves than normal
Farseer powers: Fortune and Mind Wind
Blowing up a landraider by throwing a siningspear at it
Blasting Terminators into nothing with Fire Dragons
I got nothing against Eldar. Their strength is how they are a very versatile army, that can be powerful when mobile or static, and can be very effective in close combat or shooting.
one of my favorite things have to be the design of the eldar they just kick @ss thanks for all the replies guys keep em coming! :lol:
My favourite things about the Eldar are, in order:
Fluff-we totally own every other race when it comes to fluff!
Falcon, Fire Prism- undoubtably the most beautiful tanks in the game!
Starcannon- suitable candidate for, "40K's most useful weapon"
the models themselves
"You're very interesting, and very perceptive. So interesting, and so perceptive, in fact, that we shall now fight with KNIVES!"
"I've been dead long before you were born, and I'll be dead long before you'll be dead!"
What I love about the eldar is the Alaitoc Ranger disruption rolls
Put that heavy weapon squad in reserve please
and that one
and pin that one.
You can go first
"Ah.. i'm almost done with these 3rd quater spreadsheets and still no sign of.."
"What, is up, my dog?"
"Ughhh I'm not your dog"
"Waterman, you crack me up! that's why you're my D-O-G-E"
"Your Doge? What are you talking about? I'm Strong Bad Waterman works in retial shipping resources"
"Ah-ha Good one waterman, I mean good one MY DOG"
lol? the other statements were kinda correct (except the banshees, if you're unlucky with the 5+) anyway, 10 scorpions is easily beaten by guardsmen, just have junior officer with powerweapon and 15 guardsmen and you'll beat them in 2 turns...Originally Posted by QwertyMIDX
You have to be kidding!
Part of the reason scorpions are up there with the fluff and falcons for me is that they are one of the premier light infantry killers in the game, even without the charge or pistol fire scorpions effectively get 3 attacks faster than all but a few HtH warriors, combined with a potentially re-rollable power armour save they will hold anone without serious power weapon attacks till the end of the earth.
Gaunts, guard, guardians, scouts, cultists, stormtroopers, tau are all meat for the scorpion blender, i just love throwing them into overwhelming number of these troops and watching them hack their way out the other side.
Plus they can infiltrate!!!!
Ask not a question of the eldar, for they will give you three answers all of which are true and horrifying to know.
To give you guys something to think about, i played against eldar and his scorpions took out two squads of guardsmen in two turns.
(He then charged my HQ and lost, I was in cover ^_^ )
If I played eldar i would get SS right away I think they're awesome.
howling bannashes are cool too
