Welcome to Librarium Online!
What do you think would be a good match for a WL. h2h or otherwise that cost the same amount of points. Maybe you have a good story on 50pts of model owning one. I am curious to see what people have thought about a point for point match-up. And dont be afraid to say nothing is a good match.
3 Haemonculai with Scissorhands. 30pts each, 90 pts total. Get 3 attacks, 4 on charge each, wounding on 2s. With fleet of foot they should be able to get the charge in comparison to the Wraithlord who can only move 6" a round. If it is a CC Wraithlord, its guns will only reach a max of 12", so they shouldn't get shot. So, thats 12 attacks, hitting with 6, wounding with 5, the wraithlord saves 2-3, so is either dead, or strikes back. Striking back it gets 3 attacks I believe, hitting 1-2 times, killing 1-2 Haemonculai. They should be able to do a final wound in the next round, but the Wraithlord may finish them off at the same time.
Genestealers slaughter wraithlords in CC. Their only problem is making it there in one piece. 5 Genestealers with Scything Talons = 100 points = 20 attacks with rending = 1 dead wraithlord.
I do not criticize. I do not offend. All I offer is my opinion which means only as much as you make it.
I can't think of anything of the top of my head, although could some special weapon guard with 4 meltas and a lascanonnon do it?
lascannon hit+wound-1wound done
2meltas hit+wound-2 wounds.
WL only have 3 wounds dont they?
Another problem is that a minimum brood is 6 Genestealers, making the minimum cost 120 points. Also, yeah, getting there isn't particularily easy, either.
Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?
Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives.

1 Harlequin Solitare....wraithlord is finished...or any harlequin hero with a H kiss.
People also forget sniper rifles work well to cause wounds then let a heavy weapon finish him off.
4x Alaitoc Pathfinders (96 points) would kill a wraithlord. The sniper rifles have a range of 36", so it takes 5 turns of walking 6"/turn to get within charge range from the moment it enters the snipers range, and since the squad deal 0.9 unsaved wounds on the average to the wraithlord every round, it is toast by turn 4. The wraithlords shooting will be relatively ineffective vs. the pathfinders improved coversaves.
A DE drachite with an agoniser, splinter pistol and combat drugs (86 points) will also be quite the bomb vs. a wraithlord.. Im to lazy to do the math, but I ran the combat 10000 times with this (http://members.optusnet.com.au/eldar...calculator.htm) combat calculator, playing it safe with only a + 1 A from the combat drugs, and it showed an average chance of 21% that the wraithlord would bite the dust in the charge round. Had I used more drugs, the lord would probably have been screwed even worse.
6 Deamonettes will do the trick.
Thats like 80p or something.
And big shootas is teh shiit against WL.
Oh yeah: 1 wraithguard 25pts
actually the wraith guard are 35... squad of ratlings is my pick...
