Default The Wraithsight Compilation.

[size=16pt]Wraithsight: The Compilation.[/size]

What is Wraithsight? The original intent of wraithsight articles was to discuss tactics specific to the Eldar and most commonly used by Iyanden Ghostwarrior armies. As time progressed- I found myself writing about topics that applied to all Eldar armies, and more recently concepts that applied to WH40K in general.

Wraithsight as it applies directly to 40K refers to the spirit-operated wraithguard and wraithlords which require the presence of an Eldar Seer to help guide them through the world of the living with regards to combat. In a similar light- wraithsight articles are designed to provoke thought of the 40K game beyond that of standard list tweaking and basic strategies. In a sense it is the author’s attempt to “guide” WH40K players to consider topics in the theoretical realm of the internet, with the hopes of some application on the reality of the battlefield. The core intent isn’t to lecture on “fact”, so much as organize the thoughts of the author in such a manner to evoke thought and discussion amongst its readers. Readers may find that they disagree with any or all of the content of these articles- and that is okay! The idea is to use these concepts to inspire strategies and tactical mindsets of your own.

The links to articles below have been separated into Eldar 3rd and 4th edition articles, General 40K articles, and a Hobby section of articles to be further developed. Enjoy!

Note: I am going to bold the articles below which I think are particularly helpful.
