Default Nids... Possible threat to the Eldar?

Do the Eldar see the Nids as a major threat to their race's survival as the Tau and Imperium perceive them.

Yes, Iyanden was almost completely destroyed because of Tyranids. However, since Eldar Craftworlds don't present the same bait that an Imperial Hiveworld would, 'Nids would be less of a threat.

E7 hate to tell you but thats absolutely wrong, ever heard of the Hive fleet Iyaden incident? 4/5 of the population of Iyaden died against the nids. So of course yes.

4/5 of Iyaden population... Man I would have thought the Craftsworlds were almost invulnerable.

They are most of the time but,

1# Most of their fleet left with prince Yreil and was not presant at the start of the battle.

2# The Tyranids out numbed them a bazillion to one!

They are - but so is a Hive Fleet. Ultimately, they stopped it dead. But the cost was great.

The thing is that Craftworlds aren't beacons of biomass like a Hive World would be. Likewise, Craftworlds would be a much tougher target for Mycetic Spore Mines and Genestealer cults. So, if a hive fleet finds one, its normally by chance.

Actually, If even one eldar was infected by genestealer it would lead to a hive fleet coming as a psycic beacon is sent out, and eldar have the largest amount of pyscic power of any race.
