Welcome to Librarium Online!
hi all! i was thinking of buying 2 eldar starter setts a farseer warlocks and a 2 grav plattforms.
i think that would give me a rather nice starter army. im thinking of buying scorpions or banshees at a later state. (BTW im thinkging of vanilla eldar)
i should be able to get atleast a 1500 pts army with that no?
I think that list would total up to less than 1000 pts, with a fair amount of items and wargear included.
so 2x20 guardians with starcannons and warlocks, 2 falcons, 2 vypers, 6 jetbikes and a farseer will be under 1000pts??
Oh... whoops! I thought by starter sets you meant those Guardian Defender Boxed sets... silly me :wacko: !
Well, now that I look at it, it's about 1300pts with some items and wargear. If you add in either Striking Scorpions and Howling Banshees, you should be able to fill your quota easily enough.
Note: I did this off the top of my head, so it might be a little bit off.
That's around 1200 points. That's enough left over for a squad of aspect warriors and a wave serpent.
so what aspect warriors do you think i should use? scorpions, banshees or hawks??
I'm not too sure. It really depends on what sort of units you are going to pit your units against. I dislike Swooping Hawks due to their high points cost and their low strength and high Armour Penetration guns (meaning that they are less able to ignore armour saves, of course). They don't look bad as models though.
With Striking Scorpions, I would take them for weaker mobs of units (the Exarch with Biting Blade can really cause havoc at times) and Howling Banshees would logically go against low toughness and heavily armoured units. Striking Scorpions, with a strength of 4 and armour save of 3+, are able to take on tougher units than banshees.
Personally, I would prefer Striking Scorpions, but that is just my personal opinion.
Well if you´re going to fight orks, imperial guards, tyranids or dark eldar I´d say go Striking Scorpions. If you expect to fight armies with very good armour saves, such as Space Marines (or CSM), use Banshees. However all in all, if you don´t know what you´re going to face, I´d say pick Scorpions.
Unless you´re facing the Imperial Guard or the Orks don´t use Hawks, and even in that circumstances Warp Spiders are a way better choice.
well i dont like the warp spider models (the exarch is rather cool but one pose models?)
well im thinking of a team of nine or ten scorpions and a small elite team of hawks just beacuse the models look so cool!!
well im´going to GW on the 25" to buy the standard stuff. but im thinking of order things for cheaper price but im not a fan of waiting..
