G'day folks, the following is a PDF file containing my Army list for an upcomming 2000 point Tournament. Any comments on the design or the actual list itself would be appreciated. The list wont really change, but any ideas etc will be taken into consideration

Cheers,
Dave

Of course, big props go to those who have gone to the effort to make the graphics :) Wouldnt be pretty without them lol if I knew who they were, id put a thing on the last page with credit to who they were made by (just to be polite) but ill have to wait for them to come forth etc etc before being able to do so.

Cheers,
Dave

Yup, ive seen the nickname around on EldarOnline a while back... when you say Specialist Games forums, do you mean as in the games workshop specialist games forum website? or a sub site on LO? Just trying to get in touch with him now that I have the nickname, going to seek his permission to include that image in my tournament lists for the cover page :)

Cheers,
Dave

Got in touch with Magelord, and ive got permission to use the graphic now, really top guy too, even offered to give me the coloured version to use it if I wanted :)

Well, now to email GW and ask them if im able to use their bits and pieces in the booklet or not, im guessing they will be harder to convince than Magelord who seemed to be very flattered of my using his artwork.... im just greatful as hell he said I could use it!

Cheers,
Dave

Ok, the list has been modified, since ive been told that units on bikes can only have single handed weapons, but them in told that units can now have two handed weapons unless specified in the codex against this. So I am confused as hell right now and dont really want to go hacking into 3 models to convert them if I cant actually use them on the field with WYSIWYG.

Anyone have a more definite answer that could help me sort this issue out and get this conversion done before the tournament is due?

Cheers,
Dave

How did you get in to contact with him? I e-mailed him and havn't got an answer... :(
And Jetbikers may have a two handed weapon (in your case, singing spear) and this have been discussed to death before. I have seen several GT-players use it so why not.
It doesn't say in the rules that a rider must have a hand free so he can steer the bike, that is just common logic (but that doesn't apply to this game).

Getting in contact with Magelord took some time, but agter much googling and signing up to a forum ill probably never use again, I managed to get to him lol.. he took a couple of days tor respond, but was very happy about me using his art :)

As for the Spears thing, it seems to be a very grey area, as in Chapter Approved 2004 says that Bikers may only have a single handed weapon, except in cases where allowed specifically by the codex, but that was 3rd Ed. when that ruling was put into place.

So you can see my dilemma o_O I have no definite ruling on it, although one option gives me the choice of throwing a Spear 12" for one attack, the other offers 3 CC attacks at the same strength.. so im still making up my mind on that one.. tough call!

Cheers,
Dave

PS: thanks for the input! even if im confused by this whole ordeal.. just need to get clarification before I go hacking up any of my models :)

You can indeed use Singing spears on jetbikes, for sure. I was allowed to do it on an RT Tournament just last fall so there should be no problem. Besides, please try to find any rule that says that bikers need a hand to steer? (Yes, I brought jetbikes to a tournament)

Excellent :)

Just out of curiousity there Viktor, what/how did you convert your warlock/s or Farseers on jetbike, as im currently working out what ones im going to convert as such and how to do it.

So far my idea is to cut them off at the mid section, put them on the existing jetbike rider legs, use greenstuff to mould the bottom section of the robes, and of course modify the arm to hold the handlebar, whilst the other waves the spear/sword etc.

Cheers,
Dave

I made my conversion the way you thought about, I put the upper body of a Warlock on jetbike legs and made a robe out of green stuff. I then took a jetbike hand to replace the Warlock's pistol hand and put a singing spear hand on the other. Like this:
Jetbike Warlock

Oh, and I took one of the little Star cannon add-on things from the Wave Serpent Weapon sprue and put on the back, it helps making the Singing Spear stable and makes the Warlock's jetbike look distinguished from the others.

I don't really see the point in using warp spider exarchs, are basically paying 12 pts for +1 BS which I don't really see the point of.
