Default Alaitoc 1500pt List

Craftworld Eldar List - Alaitoc (1500 PTS)

HQ

Farseer:
-Guide
-Fortune

Warlock (with Wraithguard):
-Enhance

I wanted to keep the HQ cheap but effective. I ditched the Plasma Grenades from the Storm Squad to allow for the Warlock. Guide will help the War Walkers make mincemeat of any Troops, whilst Fortue will make the Pathfinders and Rangers near invunerable. If you wanted to free up some more points for a Warlock with Enhance to accompany the Storm Guardians then just don't take any grenades for the Storm Guardians or the Striking Scorpions.


TROOPS

Rangers Squad 1:
-10 Rangers

Rangers Squad 2:
-10 Rangers

Defender Guardians Squad:
-5 Guardians
-Starcannon

Storm Guardians Squad:
-8 Guardians
-Plasma & Krak Grenades
-Fusion Gun
-Fusion Gun

Lots of Troops here! They'll take a while to whittle down and Rangers tend to be most effective in large groups. The Storm guardians can go tank-hunting if you want, or just use them for their combat abilities (you could always swap the Fusion Guns for Flamers). The Star Cannon give the Troops more of an anti armoured-target punch.

ELITES

Wraithguard Squad:
-5 Wraithguard
-Warlock
-Wave Serpent
-Twin-Linked Eldar Missile Launchers
-Spirit stone

Striking Scorpions Squad:
-5 Scorpions (inc. Exarch)
-Crushing Blow
-Stealth
-Plasma & Haywire Grenades

Pathfinders Squad:
-5 Pathfinders


The Wraithguard in the Wave Serpent make up for the fact that there are no Fast Support choices in this list. They can go tank/Termie-hunting or could be used in combat as the Warlcock accompanying them has Enhance. The Striking Scorpions can put off the enemy from assaulting your Troops or assault the enemy line. As they aren't mounted in a Transport I gave the Exarch the 'Stealth' ability. Pathfinders come as standard.

HEAVY SUPPORT

Fire Prism Grav-Tank


War Walkers
-3 War Walkers
-Scatter Lasers (Pair) x3

The Fire Prism can provide long-range support and doesn't even have to get close, whilst the War Walkers can outflank the weakened enemy and lay down a withering hail of fire, especially if they are 'Fortuned' (up to 36 re-rollable strength 6 shots!).

Right...

Looks good.* I'm glad to see you're using large ranger squads rather than using small squads to get more rolls on the ranger disruption table.* That's what I do...I'm ashamed to say...very cheesy... :'(

Oh well, your defender squad has only five guardians...don't you need a few more, five seems a little few... Like the starcannon though!* The storm squad looks good as well.

Elites look good.* Heavy support - wouldn't a Falcon be more use than a Fire Prism?* It'll cost about the same points and it could transport the scorpions - saving you points as you then wouldn't need the stealth ability.* Love the war walkers ;D ;D ;D

Your tactics look good and sensible and that looks like one nasty, powerful force to me.* Take it out and kill the mon-keigh skum.

To spell out what Tau-killer said, drop the Fire Prism and stealth, get a Falcon for your Scorpions, and use the points from stealth for a couple more Guardians.

Fair enough. I guess I left out the Falcons because I have 3 in my Ulthwe army and they're getting a bit boring. ;D
Glad you like the list.

3? Wow, that'll take up a lot of points. How many points is your Ulthwe army?

About 3000 depends on how much I tool up my Seer Council. I've had it upt to 975-odd points before. ;D

I'm sure Restayvien, being a very sensible person would have realised that the Pariah's were a huge threat and would have taken them out with starcannons, shuriken cannons and any other cannons and weapons that came in handy!

Of course.
The number of Mind War and Eldritch Storm Attacks combined with the Destructor templates and Singing Spears would make short work of anyone that got too close. I never leave the SC alone anyway, they'd have about 40 Guardians watching their backs!
I'm going to make a few changes to the list that I had to make due to a slight initial miscalculation. ;D

There, I've taken off the Fire Prism's Soul Stone, and I've taken out 2 Storm Guardians. If you wanted to free up some more points for a Warlock with Enhance to accompany the Storm Guardians then just don't take any grenades.
