Re: Eldar Vehicle Equipment list

I think this one is quite clear. The word 'items' is plural meaning you can take any of the upgrades in the list on pg.91. Be aware though that some upgrades have specific limitations or rules that affect which vehicles or number of vehicles (in the case of walkers and/or squadrons) may take them.

Re: Power, overwhelming power!!!!!

This is a modification of a list that I was toying with in 5th Ed. Not sure how it would run in 6th Ed, but hopefully will work well based on what I've heard. HQ Farseer w/ Jetbike, Spirit Stones, Singing Spear, RoWard, 50pts allowance for psi powers (173pts) 4*Jetlocks w/ 4*Jetbike, 2*Destructor, 1...

Re: Magnetizing Eldar Warwalkers

I have 10 Warwalkers that I'm going to magnetize. The way I am planning to do it is to use rectangular Neodymium Magnets on the weapons and mount points. It will require some shaving away of plastic from the weapon and mount to prepare the surfacefor the magnets, which I will then fix into place wit...

Re: Playing about with Eldar FOC

Thanks for the feedback.

I knew the idea might not to be everyone’s taste, so when I get time I’ll have another think on this (providing a new Dex doesn’t beat me to it) and possibly do a rewrite.

If you have any ideas of your own, feel free to put them forward.

Cheers.

Playing about with Eldar FOC

Please note that the following has not been playtested and are only an idea to give players the possibility of creating distinctive Craftworlds. It has come about based on what I've read in forums, the mixed reception of Craftworld Eldar and my own thoughts on the seemingly narrow band of lists crea...

Re: Heavy support choices?

Wraith Lords and Fire Prisms tend to work best in pairs supporting or being given support by other units. Falcons are good all rounders, especially if you kit them out with the right upgrades. (Hint: Holofields and Spirit Stones). As an alternative to the Fire Prism, you might like to try the Night ...

Re: Wraithlord to Wraithseer - What ya think?

I've got a few old Wraith Lord models from the days of 2nd Edition and was thinking along similar lines. Also have a couple of the old D Cannon platforms from the same period and was thinking of extending them to make a convincing D Cannon upgrade. I won't be doing anything along these lines till la...

I can also see Dark Reapers and Striking Scorpions fitting as ‘fluff wise’ Maugan Ra’s temple was destroyed with the death of his Craftworld and Karandas’ background is very dark and sinister.

Re: Scorpion Madness

I think I can see what you’re trying to do and I think it will be fun, yet difficult to play well. May I suggest swapping the Scorpion Claws for Biting Blades or Chain Sabres as these are… a. Cheaper b. Have better potential in c.c. c. Don’t drop your Exarch’s initiative to 1 The Scorpions Claw is a...

I've corrected it. They should all have read 120pts. I didn't notice that it was wrong on the sheet, but the army total is correct.

Re: Warlock Biel Tan.

Have you heard of ‘The Army Painter’? It’s a system for creating shading that a friend of mine uses. He gets excellent results from it.

I’ve bought some for when I start painting my ancients army.

The product can be found here: http://www.thearmypainter.com

Hope this helps.

1000pt Battle. Brief thoughts on.

Had a couple of battles against Space Wolves today at 1000pts. I lost both games, but did take a squishy list considering the terrain and it was bloody on both sides. My list was: Farseer 148pts Singing Spear, Runes of Warding, Spirit Stones, Fortune, Doom. See Pg.26-28 of Codex for special rules. 5...
