Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi, I've recently 'inherited' a small force of the old Eldar army from a friend who quit the game. The models that he left for me are --
10xScorpions w/ Exarch
5x Reapers w/ Exarch
2x Heavy Weapon Platform (heavy support choice)
1x Wave Serpent
1x old Wraithlord that I decided to scrap it...
I notice that there isnt much Aspect Warrior in the set (and the point cost on them ), so I decided to get some more during the coming weeks. I am building a balance army that pretty much covers everything from shooting to assault, and with a little mobility that can keep them moving every turn. What Aspect Warriors do you suggest that I should get next? So I can start playing a game right away.
A small squad of fire dragons to ride in the Falcon would be nice. A full squad of banshees to be mounted in the wave serpent would also be a good idea since right now I don't know what you would put in it. A squad of Dire avengers cold possibly work in this role as well. And finally, get another two vypers to get some more fast attack firepower.
Kai Shin Craftworld (Biel Tan / Ulthwe) 5000 pts
Emperor's Children 2000 pts
Some more Aspects are a good choice. Like mentioned, Banshees, Fire Dragons, or Avengers would be some good choices. I would suggest picking up a Wraithlord. Those things are great. Toughness 8 is damn hard to take down, and they just love killing things.
Who needs 5 Farseers???
Nights Justice Space Marines
Eldar Eth Kariel Craftworld
Spear of Kurnous - High Elf Expeditionary Army
I'll definitely second the Wraithlord and the avengers.
Are you going to play as a specific craftworld?
Looks like your friend used to play ulthwe.
Anyways I think next on your list should be some avengers and/or banshees then maybe a wraithlord or some fast attack units such as hawks or shining spears.
"I am the architect of fate!"
hehe, yea, I also get the distinct feeling that those 36 guardians are black as night and carry the Tear of Isha symbol :-)
My old style army is about the same and I took all my old guardians and scrapped them along with a Wraithlord and Warwalker... especially the guardians... compared to the new ones, the old ones are ugly...
For the Heavy Weapon Platforms, I would advice putting magnets on the weapons, same with the side weapon on the falcon, that makes them interchangeable, which is rather nice.
As to models, get some Dire Avengers (I think they are plastic) and fire dragons, and perhaps a few Swooping Hawks, you only need 5 for an annoyence unit
When I was your age Pluto was a planet and Wraithlords had D-cannons! Ah, the good old days!
You guys are correct, my friend used to play Ulthwe
I went and got a box of Dire Avengers and Fire Dragon today. I cut off the wrist holding the power weapon (not the DireSword hand) and attached/pinned it onto the wrist arm that has a Wrist Shuriken Catapult. I also cut off one of the Shuriken Catapult that the Exarch use, and pinned/attached it onto the arm with a Shimmer Shield. Now I have an Exarch that has 'everything' so I can just declare which wargear he'll be using for the fight I just love these new models so much!
I am planning on getting the Swooping Hawks next.. maybe 8 of them including an Exarch. Warp Spiders will have to wait
