Welcome to Librarium Online!
hey guys, i'm torn, i have decided to choose to play with Eldar or Chaos could you please tell me the ups and downs of Eldar (i have posted this same post on Chaos forum to be fair) thanks alot all replies are GREATLY appreciated :lol:
Please do not post the same question in multiple thread.
sorry, i'll remember
Cause your chaos thread got squashed I'll post here. Hope you don't mind. Anyway:
The good thing about chaos is that you never have to be sorry.
Seriously, chaos are great. You've got all the good things about space marines. Strength, toughness, bolters, leadership, great weapons, and a 3+ armour save for regular troops. You've also got the fact that they can swap their bolters for bolt pistols and ccws for free. And they can have loads of veteran skills and the marks of chaos undivided which makes them fearless.
Also you can summon daemons, you've got loads of cool tanks, and daemonic abilities. And if that's not all they have great units like obliterators and defilers, and GREATER DAEMONS!
Are you playying with them or building an army?
Because if you're also making an army it means that you have all the God armies like khorne who are great at cc, tzeentch who have more psychic skills than many armies, nurgle who will most likely keep attacking once they're ead and infect the enemy, and slaneesh who have sonic blasters, and good moral weapons. to choose between. Any of the udivided armies like alpha legion (cultists), iron warriors (so many heavy support), night lords (great at night fighting(duh)), etc.
And if your starting a new army you can also get really dark with the fluff.
"DICE FOR THE DICE GOD!"
And the almighty Dice God said to his followers "Thou shalt not speak ye words "anything but a one" For thou whoever'st speaketh this blasphemy will be cursed with thy rolls being of one".
I'm not going to tell you about the pros and cons of the armies. I'll just say this: pick the army that you think looks coolest, and will be easier/better to paint, so that in the end you'll have an army you like the look of, and will be good, because no matter which one you choose, you'll end up with a good army. I would also assume that you've looked into both armies and seen for yourself their playing styles and units and you should be able to make the decision yourself.
You cannot win, for to fight us is to give us power.
i have, i have both the codex's thats the thing i like the look of both of them, i guess i really want a challenge, the challenge with Eldar is the toughness, and the challenge with the Chaos is points, but the problem is i'm not the luckiest roller on earth (the dice gods hate me!) what god/aspect do you collect of the Chaos/Eldar?
Eldar require a bit more tactical savy to use than CSM. They're also great against powered armored armies because of the Banshees and Star Cannons, and since most players have armies with power armor you can really have a lot of fun with the Eldar.
Still, if you're a lot better at rolling 3's than 4's it would pay to play as CSM :lol:
Both are incredible armies in the right hands. Eldar are a little harder to play right off the bat. Your going to have quite a few losses before you get the hang of it. But when you do there great. I've played many armies and I've always liked chaos the best. But there are so many different types of chaos. Which ones appeal to you? If you narrow it down between which eldar craftworlds and chaos legions then I can be more specific with the pros/cons.
thanks for the offer i've narrowed it down to these: Vanilla Eldar (slightly boring), Ulthwe. and for CSM i thing either Nurgle, or Tzeench i like the idea of Khorne but they are too common, also i have a question, i was reading my Chaos codex, and i was wondering, it says that although your can have an undivided army, you can have "blessings" (something like that) from the gods, does this mean that you can have like minor physcic powers from the gods, but not have any of their advantages like slow and methodical for tzeench? can somebody please enlighten me? :huh: thanks!
