Default Re: Eldar aurora: Battle fleet gothic

Okay, the first thing you will need to do is go to the Games Workshop Battlefleet Gothic Resources page. There you will find everything you need to play.

At a minimum, you will need to download the following files;

[table][tr][td]File Name[/td][td]Reason why[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]BFG Basic Rules[/td][td]Core rules of the game[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]BFG Advanced Rules[/td][td]Extension of the core rules that are generally used in every game[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]BFG Scenarios[/td][td]Need these to tell you how to set up your ships to play[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]BFG Ships of the Gothic Sector[/td][td]Includes the Eldar Corsair Fleet List and the core Eldar ship rules (Shadow, Eclipse, Hellebore, Aconite, Nightshade, Hemlock)[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]BFG Xenos Fleets[/td][td]Contains rules for the Void Stalker, the Aurora and the Solaris class ships as well as an updated Corsair Fleet list[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]BFG Torpedo Markers[/td][td]Printable Ordnance markers needed for advanced games[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]BFG Fleet Registry[/td][td]Printable Army List Roster sheet[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]BFG Bearing Compass[/td][td]Essential tool needed to play game[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]BFG Blast Markers and Asteroids[/td][td]Essential markers needed to play even the basic game[/td][/tr][/table]

The two files named 'BFG Doom of the Eldar' and 'BFG Yriels Raiders' are NOT necessary to play Corsair Eldar; they detail the Craftworld Eldar Fleet (which is a distinct fleet list from the Corsair fleet) and rules to combine the two (but unless you purchase Craftworld ships then there's no real reason to even look at these two documents).

The general consensus for Corsair Eldar seems to be that the Cruisers are not worth taking due to their fragility, and as a result of this the majority of your fleet ought to be made up of Escorts instead. However, you will likely always need at least one Eclipse due to the need for Ordnance.
