Ravengers are very easy to shoot down as they're T4 W2 AS5+ every eldar weapon will manage. Lictors are usually targeted at either vehicles as their S6 + rending can seriously mess up armor or special weapons in a squad then run for it (as a lone lictor won't survive CC). You can't kill of lictors on turn 1 as they must be in reserve and comes in trough DS into terrain. So it's dufficult to set aside one unit for the task as the nid player can just choose to DS into a piece of terrain that isn't close to that unit. So the absolutely best way to dispose of lictors is to engage it in CC with either scorpions/banshees/harlies or avenger unit with shimmershield (be aware that lictors have higher I than most eldar units) or use blast/template weapons.Thanks for the suggestions. I have read in previous battle reports of Space Marines getting spooked by Lictors in terrain rich environments and was not looking forward to such a situation. Based on the suggestions, do i need to set aside a specific unit and plan in order to root Lictors off the board from turn 1, or could i afford to ignore them? The army i have planned to start is largely a footslogging Eldar force tailored specifically for urban warfare (with perhaps warwalkers and jetbikes as vehicular support).
of course one can always apply super glue to the base of any model you place in area terrain, thereby attaching the area terrain to his base and turning the whole area terrain into the base. given the BGB ruling, provdied a bases is as big or bigger than the base the model comes with this is legal and thus the lictor can not get to youIt's also worth noting that if you spread your units out throughout the cover you can very easily create a situation where it's physically impossible for the Lictor to deploy in charge range, a situation where the Lictors larger base size works against it.
