New Eldar First Attempt 1850

Postby Gobbos » Mon Jun 03, 2013 10:09 pm

Evening folks,

With the release of the new Eldar book, taking a stab at it. Keep in mind, I'm a WFB player primarily but have been known to dabble. This is 1850 missing a HQ and having 258 points to spare. Not wanting to do anything Wraith. Looking for suggestions on a good HQ choice for this build and what else to do to fill holes in the list (no named unless its a Phoenix Lord, army is Biel-Tan).

Elite: Fire Dragons (5)

Troops: Dire Avengers (10)
-Exarch with pw & shimmershield
-Wave Serpent w/ holo-fields
Troops: Dire Avengers (10)
-Exarch with pw & shimmershield
-Wave Serpent w/ holo-fields
Troops: Jetbikes (3)
-shuriken cannon
Troops: Jetbikes (3)
-shuriken cannon

Fast: Crimson Hunter
Fast: Vyper (1)
-lower turret shuriken cannon
Fast: Vyper (1)
-lower turret shuriken cannon

Heavy: Dark Reapers (5)
Heavy: War Walkers (3)
-each has 2 brightlances
Heavy: Falcon
-holo-fields

Thanks for the input!

Hmmmmmm.. This is a tough one. I do t think you can go with a Farseer as an HQ because you don't have a good unit to attach him to and let him cast his powers. Unless you take a small Harlequin squad with a Shadowseer and attach the Farseer to them. You could grab 3 telepathy powers and be protected from most shooting while attached to the Harlequins.

Maugan Ra can go in here with the a dark Reapers and tank some incoming shots for them.

Yu can take an Autarch on Jetbike and attach him to a bike squad. Increase that bike squad to a 10 man squad so you have 10 Jetbikes and an attached Autarch. The Autarch can help repel an assault on the bikes and increase their leadership to 10. The Autarch can also add/subtract one from your reserve rolls to help control the arrival of the crimson hunter.

I was thinking of adding 2 5 man Ranger squads for more objective grabbing, and for HQ an Autarch on foot in an Avenger squad with one of the swords or a Farseer with Guide and 2 rolls on Divination. I like the idea of more bodies on the ground, but that could be the WFB mindset.

Asurmen could also work. Attach him to one of the Dire Avenger squad
