Hey there, thought i'd share what i'm currently working towards, also looking for opinions so i don't make (more) suboptimal buys. Got two games of 8th myself so far with Eldar, but watched a ton of Batreps and games at the local store while painting msn-wink.gif so i think i got a grasp of what awaits...

 

Here goes:

 

Battalion Detachment: Craftworlds

 

HQ:

 

Farseer  - 120

- Singing Spear

 

Autarch Skyrunner *  - 121

- Mandiblasters, Laser Lance, Shuriken pistol

 

Warlock - 37

 

Troops:

 

Dire Avengers (10) - 167

- Exarch: Diresword

 

Guardian Defenders (10) - 110

- Platform: AML

 

Guardian Defenders (10) - 110

- Platform: AML

 

Elites:

 

Wraithguard * (5) - 225

- D-Scythes

 

Fast Attack:

 

Shining Spears * (5) - 218

- Exarch: Starlance

 

Heavy Support:

 

Dark Reapers (5) - 187

- Exarch: Tempest Launcher

 

War Walkers (2) - 222

- 4 AML

 

Wraithlord - 155

- 2 Flamers, Ghostglaive, 2 Shurikencannons

 

Transports:

 

Wave Serpent - 163

- Shurikencannon, Twin Shurikencannons, Vectored Engines, Spirit Stones

 

 

Wave Serpent - 163

- Shurikencannon, Twin Shurikencannons, Vectored Engines, Spirit Stones

 

That's 1998 total. Units marked with * are not yet in my collection (or in fewer numbers, for the shining spears. Old metal chunks biggrin.png ).

Other units i got boxed: 6 Striking Scorpions, 5 Swooping Hawks, 2 Warlocks, 1 Farseer, 5 Dire Avengers, 3 Vaul's Wrath Batteries.

I can live with switching to Ynnari for SfD, but would stick to Craftworlds for most friendly games, and i really don't want to dip into Harlequins or Dark Eldar at this point. Might get the triumvirate down the line though.

 

My thought is to have a rather static lump with the Heavy Support choices, the Guardians and the Warlock. Meanwhile the Spears + Autarch and the Serpents with Avengers, Farseer and Wraithguard move up to take objectives and/or eliminate priority threats.

 

I know some of these choices are suboptimal (poor DAs) and that is okay with most of my opponents. Sometimes, there are these kinds of people at the FLGS though and i don't want to be entirely in the fluffy bunny corner tongue.png So tell me ehat you think, can this be made to work? What could be substituted to give the cheesemongers a run for their money in a pinch? My first idea is to trim heavy weapon chices to squeeze in the Hawks... And did i even account for the points properly? ohmy.png Looking forward to some feedback!

Updated my wishlist to the codex smile.png

 

All forces use the Ulthwe trait, though i might experiment in that regard. 1999 points total.

 

Supreme Command Detachment: 170

 

HQ:

 

Farseer 100

- Fortune, Mind War

 

Warlock 35

- Embolden/ Horrify

 

Warlock 35

- Quicken/ Restrain

 

Battalion Detachment: 1050

 

HQ:

 

Farseer 105

- Guide, Doom, Singing Spear

 

Warlock 35

- Protect/ Jinx

 

Troops:

 

Dire Avengers (10) 120

- Dire Avenger Exarch: Avenger Catapult

 

Dire Avengers (10) 120

- Dire Avenger Exarch: Avenger Catapult

 

Guardian Defenders (20) 160

 

Fast Attack:

 

Shining Spears (5) 157

- Shining Spear Exarch: Stralance

 

Swooping Hawks (5) 65

- Swooping Hawk Exarch

 

Dedicated Transports:

 

Wave Serpent 144

- Shuriken Cannon, Twin Shuriken Cannon, Vectored Engines

 

Wave Serpent 144

- Shuriken Cannon, Twin Shuriken Cannon, Vectored Engines

 

Spearhead Detachment: 779

 

HQ:

 

Autarch with Warp Jump Generator 101

- Mandiblasters, Reaper Launcher

 

Heavy Support:

 

Dark Reapers (5) 140

- Dark Reaper Exarch: Tempest Launcher

 

Support Weapons (3) 225

- 3 D-Cannons

 

War Walkers (2) 180

- 4 Brightlances

 

Wraithlord 133

- Ghostglaive, 2 Shuriken Cannons, 2 Shuriken Catapults

 

Plan is to have a firebase with the Autarch and Conceal-Warlock buffing Dark Reapers, Platforms and Warwalkers, Wraithlord to deter cc units and deepstrikers. Shining Spears can hang around cover or go for a juicy turn 1 charge with quicken, Guardians will lurk in the webway to strike when opportune and the Dire Avengers ride up in the Serpents, supported by the remaining psykers (though i might leave one farseer behind to buff the War Walkers, we'll see...). I'm really keen to try and murder characters with mindwar, embolden and the swooping Hawk buff, while unreliable i find it hillarious (and can't afford a Hemlock yet tongue.png )

 

Should the argument come up about the Index Autarch I'll remove him for an Autarch Skyrunner with the spears and drop the Singing Spear on my Farseer.

 

I would also love to fit in a unit of Striking Scorpions, but i can't come up with a solution to snuggly get to 2k points with what i have available. I'd be gateful for any hints in that regard :thumbs up:
