What do you think is the best eldar unit? And why?
Some of my favorites are the Dark Reapers and Wrightguards...

Dark Reapers, because they can lay down quite a bit of fire, and has good range. And best of all the sm don't get saves against the reaper launcher :lol:

Wrightguards, bucause they are tough, and the wrightcannon is a very deadly and potent weapon, often underestimated a lot. It is actualy the weapon with highest chance to take out a Necron Monolith... <_<

Dark Reapers, I hate Dark Reaper, I hate them, I hate them, I hate them! If you haven't guessed I am SM player. Those guys are the first I look kill. That is way I feel they are one of the best Eldar units.








Death to all those that oppose the Emperor!!!!!

Hmm.

My favorite Eldar unit would have to be a pair of Falcons decked out and a 3 Vyper Escort with Brightlances.

Another favorite is Rangers and Pathfinders - wonderful terminator killers.

My favourite unit would have to be the Avatar of Khaine, for 80pts he is a bargain compared to what he is capable of doing. In a normal battle he can rake up 3 times his points cost easily.

Still... he's a chunk of a god!

He should be like 200 Pts plus and have some bloodthirster level tyoe of hand to hand skill.

But I agree, in game terms hes a beast, but I'd still be willing to pay the points if he got FoF or a better save.

He has WS of 10! how much skill do you want? And about his save, I worked this out one day: If a squad of 10 SM fired 2 shots each at the Avatar, once the 'to hit' rolls and 'to wound' rolls where taken and the Avatar's armour save was added in 3.75% of the SM shots would wound him. :D

yeah, and that's still not enough for an incarnation of a god, that is supposed to be "extremely diffiult" to kill :p

He can be, I've seen my Avatar survive 2 turns of shooting where my opponent (Blood Angels) threw every bullet he had at the Avatar and he only lose 1 wound.

I think he should be given either a 4++ save in line with other deamons or a 3+ normal save on top of his 5++.
It's a shame, as he is it's an amazing unit. It's devestatingly powerful for it's price, especially for the effect it has on eldar units around it. I'll be sad to see it go. But it has to change, it just doesn't fit the fluff, it's not powerful enough compared to other similar creatures and it's too common.
That said, I don't think it should become TOO powerful in a C'Tan style way, I think it should halt at around the 150point mark.

I agree the Avatar needs changed, a 4+ Invulnerable save at least. Some people want a points restriction on him (can only be used in 1500pts+). At the moment the Wailing Doom doesn't do anything (it's supposed to ignore armour saves but since the Avatar is a Monstrous Creature he takes care of that on his own.)

I think the avatar is fine the way it is... he may be the avatar of a god but what 1?? the eldar warshiped both slanesh and khorne who fought over who would get the "crown" and sundered the other gods... there for it should only have a fraction of the str a full blown avatar of a god should have right? keep him the way he is its alot easier to use if peeps dont have anything to complain about right?

He is the Avatar of Khaine - it says so in the Eldar Codex. And thats not the chaos god Khorne mind you.



The eldar have never worshipped slannesh - but created her/him/it during the fall. And Khorne is a totally different entity - nothing really to do with the Eldar.

The sundering is from High Elves, not Eldar - its two different things.

:: looks at C'tan, looks a Greater Daemons::

Easier to use?
