i play ulthwe. guardian defenders...can never have too many.
xv88...war walkers suck so much. i wont field them. every game they die on the first turn. a guy shot his lemon ruiss exterminator into a squad of 3 of them with star cannons and they all died. 300 points down the drain. i wont field them until the new codex where they are one choice, but can move and fire and do w.e independently from each other.
may favorite is either the fire prism or the seer coucil . it takes out tanks and heavy infantry. i played agaisnt space pupies today and took out a rhino, a razorback, half a squad of marines and blew the heavy bolter that was killing a particular guardian squad stright off. if u give it holo filed and spirit stones, and move above 6, u can onyl glance it, u roll 2 d6 and pick the lowest when it is damaged (so almost always 1,2,3) and then u can ignore it with the spirt stones. it can capture table cornors and objectives.
my seer council has 3 farseers and 4 warlocks. all ahve witchblades and 2 warlox got enhane, so the farseers are ws and I 6. they always wound on 2's. the warlocks are I and WS 5 and ALWAYS wound on 2's. all of them ahve re rollable 4+inv saves (effectively a 2+ inv save) how can u not like that?
Yep, i have a few of the pointy eared fellows. About 1500 points i would estimate, i dont play much so i couldnt say for sure. Just playing craftworld of my own colour scheme of Regal Blue and Bleached Bone. At the moment it consists of:
1 Squad of Guardians + Warlock
1 Squad of Rangers (6 minis)
1 Squad of Swooping hawks
1 five man squad of Warp Spiders
1 Wave Serpent
1 Fire Prism
All of the above are semi painted, the swooping hawks and warlock are the only minis finished. Next on my list when i get around to buying more eldar minis is the Avatar, Wraithlord, another squad of Guardians some Dark Reapers and Heavy Weapons platform. I will leave it at that then. Oh yea some howling banshees, want some of them too.
Im an eldar player before i was a deamonhunter player and i use 2 wraithlords, scorpoins, with a farseer and fortune with them, banshees, guadians, dragons, and either a falcon or reapers. Its a pretty good army
i say guardians are essential to any eldar army. with a 5+ cover save, 20 of them, and re rollable(fortune) they make a far better meat shield then grethchin and can deal out HUGE amounts of damage at close range. we are tlakin 40 str 4 ap 5 (rerollable, guide) shots here!!
plus eldar excell at mobile firepower. they only add to this with the heavy weapon that can fire. a well balanced eldar army i believe can outshoot even imperial guard, specially with their flexibilty and mobilty.
I play Eldar too, Ulthwe Strike Force to be exact.
My army has :
-a seer council
-a couple of fire dragons
-a couple of rangers
-2 guardian defenders squads with scatter laser and a starcannon
-a storm guardian squad
-a squad full of vypers
i'll post my full army list soon...(when i have the time).
Mind you everyone used to play Eldar then as they used to own Space Marines and were nastily cheaper until the publication of 'Chapter Approved'.
Also I used to try to be Craftworld when everyone else was pirate or mercenary Eldar. The big attraction for me was Harlequins which have gone now, so frankly Eldar are just Tau with pointy heads without them.
Hello? Character? I seem to have lost track of you at some point.
My God, how cool was the idea of Solitaires and Death Jesters?
