Welcome to Librarium Online!
i was wondering if this sounds reasonable- as an upgrade for striking scorpions, they may be replace their chainsword with a power weapon for +10 points. This, however, means that with grenades, your average scorp will clock in at just under 30 points.
However, this would be great. How many times have you wished that your banshees had 1 more S, T, A, and a better save? not to mention when combined with STEALTH you have a squad that actually will get to CC crazy fast...
I was just wondering if anyone else had thoughts on this. I was actually think that they were a wee bit costly. IMHO, a reduction of 4 points off the cost of upgrade, combining it with nades upgrade. (IE, you can get just 'nades, power weps and 'nades, but not just power weapons? also, this would make crushing blow a nice exarch option. (4 str 5 CC attacks that ignore armor saves... there is a god.)
maybe this would be better:
23 rest of statline scorpion
Equipment: Power Weapon, Shuriken Pistol, Haywire 'nades, Plasma 'nades, Mandiblaster
Options: same as scorps
Special Rule: Shadows walk the line- Shadow Hunters are chauvinistic b******s, beleiving that banshees are "undeserving" of their power weapons, which they beleive should be given to those who bear the brunt of most battles, as such, banshees have gone "missing" and turned up days later sans power weapon. As such, any Eldar Unit within 6" of a Shadow Hunters Unit automatically falls back 6" away from them, and then regroups. Also, they automatically fall back from any close combat which Shadow Hunters join all allied eldar units fall back, and continue doing so with a LD -2 modifier, until they either a) regroup or b) are 18" away from the Shadow Hunters. crossfire rules applying.
If it's not funny, I will remove it. Stand Warned.
Wow, all that just cause u wanna arm you scorps with power weapons?
I wouldn't want those things in my army, if all my units are gonna run from them. They seem more like a problem then something that will help your army....unless you play on a big table.
I'm sorry, no. The Eldar Aspects are different for a reason, and that is to make their roles different. Giving the Scorpions power weapons would remove their "speciality" and make them the best all-round assault unit in the Eldar army. It's simply a lobotomisation of the tactical process.
And the fluff reason for it is stupid. Eldar society is gender neutral for everything apart from the Banshees (which is out of homage for their mythology), why on earth would they develop such a deep-seated chauvanism that means that they would kill their own? There's few enough Eldar around as it is.
Scorpions with power weapons? Sounds a bit like Incubi to me and they are a retinue only choice, at 25 points each, might be somewhat cheap for giving an elites squad all power weapons, +13 a model maybe, thats still cheaper than the 15 points a power weapon normally costs. Thats purely from a game mechanics viewpoint.
From a fluff viewpoint I think its a bit silly, and that Xeres is right.
Those eldar need to start having more sex.

Didn't think so.
Even beyond teh fluff there is a reason squads have teh options they do. If you want your scorps to have power weps then go fight some plaguebearers or wraiths and pretend they do.
