Default 1000pts Take all comers Eldar list - 1500pts list added

Hey all, unsure of what army to start at the moment but since I'm in possession of some guardians I can test scheme with, I thought I'd make a list encase I decided that i liked them .

Farseer; 125
Guide
Fortune
Spirit Stones
He'll be looking after the reapers and anyone else who needs it, plus attempting to kill of characters, monstrous creatures and unit champions that need be topped off.

Guardians; 180
20 Guardians, Warlock
Embolden
Eldar Missile Launcher
These guys'll hold the farseer safe, find some cover, snipe tanks/pie plate infantry or decimate units that get too close.

6 Pathfinders; 144
These guys'll sit on an objective/in cover and snipe away at MCs, TEQs or low LD units that need to be pinned.

Guardian Jetbikes; 175
4 Guardians, 1 Warlock
Embolden
Shuriken Cannon
These guys'll jump out of cover, blast some GEQs, then jump back in cover with the Eldar Jetbike rule. They can grab objectives if need be, too.

5 Dark Reapers
They'll sit in cover, get fortuned when playing armies with units that are MEQ, and hopefully blast away said MEQs :P.

Vyper; 65
Eldar Missile Launcher

Vyper; 65
Eldar Missile Launcher

Vyper; 65
Eldar Missile Launcher
These guys'll hide in cover, sneak around the sides, then hopefully blast tanks away! They can also turn their attention to GEQs and TauEQs if needed.

TOTAL; 996

C&C much welcome and appreciated .

Nice.

This should do fairly well. The only issue I see at the moment is the odd lack of CC troops. Not a fatal flaw, but something you may want to look at eventually.

Thanks, yeah, I did look at that, I'll try and add some in higher points .

No problem 8). If you want to try to include some at 1000 points, you could drop 10 Guardians and include a cheap Scorpion or Banshee squad instead, though it won't have an Exarch unless you put cheaper weapons on the platform and a Vyper. I recommend against that though, the EML is a good weapon.

Yeah, I reckon I need the bodies faithful servants to protect the farseer and the important EML .

Yeah, and I just realized that you could reduce the jetbike squad and lose 1 Reaper and get the same unit. With the Vypers and Guardian EML, losing one Reaper won't really hurt you, and preserves the attrition meatshield for the Farseer.

One other thought, consider Doom for the Farseer, it's really handy in a pinch.

I was referring to the previously mentioned small CC unit.

With the guardians, take a warlock. It increases their survivability by heaps. One thing I don't understand, you have the farseer up the back with the reapers, yet you arm him with an 18 inch psychic power? best way to go would be take guide and fortune, with the guardians take a warlock with either conceal, or if in cover embolden. I'd also advise embolden on your jetbikes too. Use the farseer to guide the reapers and fortune the guardians. They will last for ages, provided they don't get hit by artillary or a very close flamer...

Ah, of course, silly me. Hmm... maybe... but they'd have no support really, and considering there wouldn't be many of them...

I did think of it, but then I thought the farseer could go with them, they'd hide in cover and get a re-rollable save? So I have, heh, ok, I'll change that, yeah guide and fortune it is. Okey doke, I'll add some emboldening warlocks to keep the the guardian units in line. I'll try and edit my first post later .

Thank you both .
