Default Maugan-Ra............ help ???

can anyone lead me to any threads or sources that would give me stats or rules for Maugan-Ra. Plus can anyone tell me if he is useful in an ulthwe army (or any eldar army for that matter).

eldar codex has mr ra's stats. looking anywhere else for them will get your wrists slapped by the moderators/admins here and games workshop.

i realise you're still waiting on your order to arrive, but a little patience and you'll have your stats.

*edit*

it's rare to find any eldar list which includes any of the special characters/phoenix lords (with the exception of the avatar). i think it has something to do with being able to get an entire squad of aspects for the price of a single lord.

Yeah even the summary sheet doesn't have them listed... but it's got everything else:

http://uk.games-workshop.com/eldar/r...-reference.pdf

When I played Eldar, I just used him as an Exarch. He's pretty bad@ss cause he's got a decent powerweapon (at least I think the scythe on his Reaper Cannon was a Str 5 or 7 powerweapon) but he's by far not the best Phoenix Lord. His ranged weapon wasn't that much more impressive than a Shuriken Cannon. Heck come to think about it, I remember all of the other Phoenix Lords having a much better "whoa" factor to them.

Well, I tried to throw some legal gameplay tid-bits your way till your Codex arrives.

A character that costs as much as a squad and has only a 3+ save is not very effective.

I only use them when I field more than 2 squads of aspects, then its just to fluffy to resist

Ok on that note im begining to think the idea of fielding him is probably a bad idea (just going out on a whim here!) and sadly i am a very unpatient person but i will wait and try to be as good as possible since i've already had a few misshaps anyways

Best to save the P-Lords for big fluffy battles. (Is it just me or does that just sound...wrong?)

I used Jain Zar to excellent effect in one battle, but in another she was squashed very quickly. P-Lords are risky.
I've never used Maugan-Ran though.

Maugan Ra is my least favourite phoenix lord and in my opinion he is a complete waste of points.* For 9 extra points you can have a 3 man Dark Reaper squad with an exarch with an EML - and that would be far more devastating than Maugan Ra.

The problem is, one doesn't know how to use MR effectively.* Do you charge him up the field to take advantage of his high strength, the fact that he ignores armour saves and his large number of attacks in cc (thereby wasting his high BS and maugetar weaponry) or do you stick him behind the front lines (perhaps with a squad of Dark Reapers) therby using his firepower capabilities but completely wasting his cc ones.* I think he'd be much better if all his cc abilities and upgrades were cut out - drastically reducing him in points cost but making him much better value for points and much more like a Dark Reaper.
