Default 2000 pt. Biel-Tan Army

Here's an army I've been working out, and I proxied it part of it yesterday.

HQ
1 Avatar* * (80)

Troop
9 Fire Dragons* (214)
1 Exarch
* Firepike
* Tank Hunter

9 Fire Dragons* (214)
1 Exarch
* Firepike
* Tank Hunter

9 Warp Spiders* (302)
1 Exarch
* *Deathspinner
* *Powerblades
* *Surprise Assualt
* *Withdraw

9 Warp Spiders* (302)
1 Exarch
* *Deathspinner
* *Powerblades
* *Surprise Assualt
* *Withdraw

Transport
Wave Serpent* * (115)
TL Scatter Laser
Carrying Fire Dragon squad 1

Wave Serpent* (115)
TL Scatter Laser
Carrying Fire Dragon squad 2

Fast Attack
9 Swooping Hawks* (267)
1 Exarch
* *Web of Skulls and Shuriken Pistol
* *Sustained Assualt
* *Bounding Leap

Heavy Support
1 Wraithlord* (125)
* *Eldar Missile Launcher

1 Wraithlord* (125)
* *Eldar Missile Laucher

1 Wraithlord* (125)
* *Eldar Missile Launcher


I find this army fairly flexible. The Fire Dragons and Warp Spiders can either be a mobile firing base, or an assualt squad. The Wraithlords are for tank-hunting, and squad removal. I love the large blasts the Swopping Hawks have whenever they deep strike, and they are a decent firing squad. I added in Wave Serpent transports for the Fire Dragons to get them into fire range faster.

That looks great to be perfectly honest with you. I think that that's a very good army. only two things though...

It's a pity that you don't have the Court of the Young King in your army. However having it is based on personal choice and if you don't wish to have it that's fine.

You might have a little trouble against really powerful vehicles such as the landraider. EMLs will only glance on a 6 and you'll be relying on your fire Dragons and the Avatar to take them down. However you will have to get really close to do it and by that time they might have been shot up pretty badly....I'd suggest replacing one EML for a bright lance just for insurance.

Other than that - it looks great. Good luck.

Thanks. I almost beat a SM army, when I had Striking Scorpions and Dark Reapers instead of the Fire Dragons and Warp Spiders. I lost by one model! Don't EML have Krak Missiles?

They do have Krak missiles yes.
Please don't type stats here Mahe001, we could get into trouble with GW.

Sorry about that. Does anyone else have anything to say about this army, good or bad?

I don't know if you're planning on using this army for friendly games or tournament play...most likely friendly I assume. It looks like a great list but I would accuse it of being too much of a "cookie cutter" list, not that that would stop you from having fun with it. The warp spiders certainly are a nice touch as I don't see them used too often. :P

....What happens if the enemy brings a landraider or monolith or leman russ? They're not really that uncommon.


Other than that I think its a unique and cool army.

Well, it's mostly for friendly matches. My main opponent is a Tau player, giving me reason for the Fire Dragons, which destroyed two of his Hammerheads. I'm thinking of equipping one of my Wraithlords with brightlance, for the Land Raiders and the such.

nah don't go for bright lances, those missle launchers are the only things in your army capable of pinning or taking out 4+ armor from 48" away. for you i'd say they're a necessity. if you bump into any land raiders just pop them with your dragons. oh..something to think about: consider dropping one of your hawk squads for a couple wave serpents for the dragons...at 267 points/squad it should look like a welcoming prospect to drop one for increased mobility in your only terminator/armor killers. and the points to do it are definetly there.
