EDIT: *facepalm* Sorry, missed the list sub-topic. Could someone move to the right spot?

 

Hello, I'd like a second opinion on this list. This is for the Fate of Konor Invasion mission. Since I'm Xenos, I'm not sure if I'll be on offense or defense, so I'm trying to keep it well-rounded. It's been difficult for me because I typically play Blood Angels and Eldar don't really have strong melee options from what I can see. 

 

 

++ Battalion Detachment +3CP (Aeldari - Craftworlds) ++
 
Autarch Skyrunner: Forceshield , Shuriken Pistol, Twin Shuriken Catapult 
 
Farseer : 2. Doom, 3. Fortune, Singing Spear 
 
Guardian Defenders: 10x Guardian Defender, Guardian Heavy Weapons Platform : Bright Lance 
 
Rangers: 5x Ranger 
 
Rangers: 5x Ranger 
 
Shining Spears: 4x Shining Spear -  Shining Spear Exarch: Star Lance 
 
Wraithlord: Bright Lance
 
Wraithlord: Bright Lance

The Autarch is obviously with the Spears. The vague idea is that the defenders set up a center line with rangers on the flanks. The Wraithlords advace as large distractions and decent melee counters. The Spears is a Quick Reaction Force. 
 
So, how's this list? Is the Farseer a good idea or should I switch it out for a Warlock?

I'd go for the lance on the autarch, makes him much more of a threat in cc. Also i'd consider switching the lances on the WLs for Shurikencannons if you intend to move them constantly. Otherwise, i love Wraithlords, so i like you list ;)


No pity.

No remorse.

No fear.

Thanks for the reply. 

 

My issue with removing the lances on the WL is that I'm afraid I won't have enough anti-tank options on the table. Though, I suppose a compromise is to remove the lance on one WL and use the points to add a lance on the autarch. Or am I being too worried about anti-tank with this list?

To follow up, the list did really well! I ended up facing a Death Guard force with the three new DG characters and the weird hover vehicle thing. Throw in some nurglings and plague marines for troops, while a Daemon Prince and a dreadnought brought in some heavy firepower.

 

To my pleasant surprise, the Autarch and Shining Spears killed the plague marines in one turn, then murdered the Daemon Prince the next turn. Meanwhile one Wraithlord charged and tied up the Nurgle hover-craft before eventually slaying it. 

 

The rangers did little but secured VPs since I teleported them into the enemy's deployment zone. I think their highlight was dealing one mortal wound to the dreadnought. 

 

I stationed the Farseer and Guardians in one corner as a distraction, and that worked very well. Lost three guardians by the end of it. Not so sure about the utility of the shining spear. 

 

No units lost. Almost happened when the Daemon Prince charged one squad of rangers, but they survived and fell back to allow the Spears to murder. 

 

Note, my opponent had a lot of bad dice rolls, but I can't complain about winning the game with a score of 5-0 in VPs. Chalked the win to the Imperium in the Campaign of Konor. Fun times. Next week, the lists are 1250, so I'm now wondering what to add to this list....
