well karandras needs approval from opponent, i would suggest the avatar. he is cheap in points and VERY effective. the farseer is usully for specilist roles, such as aiding a squad or many squads with guide and fortune, but the avatar just gets into cc. the farseer u dont jsut buy to buy, u buy cuz u need him to do something
if yur starting out, get an avatar. plus its a great model.
next, pick up 1-2 boxes of guardians and some heavy weapons platofrms
wraithlords too..gotta be one of the best things in the game.(toughest and strongest)
I have $50 to spend now... And I want a small force.. Should I go for Altioc or Beil-tan? I could get 5 scorpians with leader. 5 Banshees with leader. And then propably Kasandras. Or I could get two 5 man ranger squads and a Farseer.
if u got 50 bucks then get the farseer( ALOT cheaper then avatar) and a box of guardians. that will be about 40 dollars and ten dollars to get a warlock for yuour guardian squad, or heavy weapon platofrm for the guardians.
this would be a very small force, but effective for trying out the eldar and testing wat u like
beil tan tends to be expensive since there alot of aspect warriors and the aspect warriors ocme in blisters of 2 for about 10 dollars and u need like a squad of ten.
i think it would be best to play vanilla eldar, get a feel for them, buy thingd your gonna use in just about any craftowrld, and then decide wat craftworld u wanna do by yur expeience with the models youv played with and wat u like.
i did that and i loved the guardians, so i decided to play ulthwe.
Why not just go with a vanilla Eldar force? Thats what i'm donig for my army, but you may want to choose a cool looking craftworld paint scheme (I'm painting my Eldar Ulthwè but i'm still going vanilla) so that way if you ever want to go with a craftworld army you already got a lot painted in the scheme.
I want a small force that I can play with... so 1 HQ and 2 Troops.
Also I don't want to do Vinilla Eldar.. I'm desiding between Altioc, Sam-hie, And Bel-tia
(I spelled thoughs wrong)
I have 75 dollars not 65 (Big difference)
Ok if u want to play saim hann ur gonna need a nice big chunk of money and see ing as you dont have that, i would suggest maybe playing alaitoc, they are fun and not too expensive. With $75 you could start a decent sized army. Start of with:
The Farseer is really good, it would only be stupid to stand up some of the best psykers in the game.
And to all you morons who haven't understood it yet: Phoenix Lords can join any Squad, but they make their own aspect fearless.
I'd get a Farseer and a Phoenix Lord (The Avatar isn't so stealthy)
I would actually go with the 1 Farseer, 1 warlock, 10 Rangers, 5 Scorps/Howling Banshees then. Because then u have a nice amount of rangers and some good CC guys which u can stick your farseer with, give the farseer a witchblade, S. Pistol, and Fortune and they will be hell to kill. You can stick the warlock with them too and give them conceal/enhancement to make them even harder to kill.
