bad spelling i know, i was just wondering how you guys were going to kit out your aurtauch, i was thinking warp spider jump pack, scorp chainsword and shuriken pistol or maybe fusion gun, how bout you guys ?
Interesting question. From the rumors he's going to be a pretty vulnerable unit.
I won't decide until I see point costs but I'm thinking bike/mandiblaster/lance/fusion blaster and use him a as a vehicle hunter most of the time and then throw him into CC when I think it'll be decisive or when I won't have a powerfist or lots of attacks coming back at me.
Out of curiosity coteaz what were you planning to do with your autarch? Do you only fight IG or are you planning to keep him cheaps and are getting him for the 4 command rating and reserves?
for me he is going to be a dire avenger supporting unit. will give him a fusion gun, mandiblaster, swooping hawk wings, powersword (literally one form each aspect.. hahaha).
the power sword works with the shuriken pistol for that +1 attack, the fusion gun will help to take care of ny armour that may be un expected, wile the wings are necessary for emergencies at the other end of the table. the mandiblaster... who dosent love madiblasters... i think they give +1 attack now...
For me, i would have a warp spider generator, mandiblasters. a diresword<if possible> and power blades and a shuriken pistol.
Spider pack, Shining spear Lance (or Diresword if possible), Power blades, Banshee mask, Shuriken pistol (or Crushing claw if possible).
Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!
yea im mainly using him for his command and reserve special rules but i might attach him to some spiders and use him for flanking, getting him into cc when needs be
Well it's all rumors but I don't think he can take any exarc gear. Just regular trooper gear. And I don't think he can take the lance without a bike (or I will definitly be using it).
Also I'm not so sure about those powerblades.
When you get right down to it I'm not so sure about this guy actually mixing it up in CC I guess we'll see how much he costs.
- Shuriken pistol and power sword
- Any standard equipment
- his main purpose is just to give a bit of a kick to a support unit, provide leadership and +1 to reserve role.
- Torment... ee, maindblaster
- Laser lance
- his speed means that he can land assistance to any squad on battlefield that is about to charge the enemy... universal bike rules also give him T4 and occasionally invulnerable 3+ save.
-Power sword and shuriken pistol
Jetbikes can fire their heavy weapons while moving... this means that I'll send a nasty pinning weapon to that pesky fire warriors that are having a picnic somewhere in cover believing that they are save... having 48''+ 12'' range is also a nice bonus.
This configuration uses his (rumoured) gained 'exarch' aspect warrior ability:
- Swooping Hawk wings/Warp spider generator
- Fusion gun/Death spinner
- Shuriken pistol and power sword
It’s all around warrior.
Can't wait for the new 'dex to try new ideas.
it wont make sense then.. how is one Autarch holding a missile launcher with both of his hands and still be able to steer the Jetbike with his elbows?Originally Posted by Marcus Piraticus
Anima Tactics - try it out!
The missile launcher is 'built in' the jetbike (the shuriken catapults will be replaced by Eldar missile launcher), should be an interesting conversion.
