Do you mean a ranger army with only rangers and no HS or FA? Or do you mean an army with only Rangers as troops, with FA and stuff?

Because there is a ranger craftworld called Alaitoc. I'm not going to pretend I know lots about the matter. But they use rangers as their troops and can utilize special rules for rangers.

Hmm, this list I made is by no means an 'all Ranger' army, but it has a lot of Rangers in it:

Quote:
HQ

Farseer:
-Guide
-Fortune

Warlock (with Wraithguard):
-Enhance


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

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


HEAVY SUPPORT

Fire Prism Grav-Tank


War Walkers
-3 War Walkers
-Scatter Lasers (Pair) x3
If you want brief tactics to utilise while using this army then look for it in the Army Lists board.

Alternatively, you could play kill-team and comprise it solely of Rangers.

The Alaitoc Craftworld does allow for alot of rangers to be used aswell as Pathfiders (gotta love them), but in my opinion all ranger armies would not work. Although being very good at pinning a force, they struggle to take out heavier stuff such as tanks. You need a good balence in order to win with them.

I agree in that taking too many rangers will seriously unbalance the army. For a start they die too easily and they aren't great infantry killers - their fire should be reserved for high toughness units so therefore plenty of anti infantry units should be taken.

I mean instead of guardiens or avengers as troops, why not use a bunch of rangers? plus all the other stuff I have ( wraithlord, platform, falcon, fire dragons, etc.)

Yep, nothing wrong with that - and if you use enough you'll be able to make use of the Eldar's best friend - the ranger disruption table!

Firstly, welcoem back!

Secondly, what tau killer says is true, but to use the disruption table you need to feild Alaitoc.

Thirdly, this will probably be an army that will lose. But it will be fun!
