So I am new to eldar and am playing in a tournament in a couple months and wanted to try out a few things.  So my idea is to have the reapers sit in the back behind everything with cat lady and explode anything that might be a threat.  I want to load 2 dire avenger squads in the wave serpent and have them secure objectives with a gunline of guardians supporting everything.  Let me know thoughts, comments and suggestions please.

Very low on killing power. You are going to run into trouble with any high toughness list.

If going Ynnari maybe get one big unit of Reapers instead so you can get more out of Soulburst?

The following advice is considering efficiency above all else, if you are invested in models or fluffy reasons for suboptimal picks, the more power to you and feel free to ignore ;)

 

Make the guardians two squads of 20 and deepstrike those via stratagem, take shuricannon platforms as ablative wounds and drop the third unit for Rangers to screen the reapers. Guardians are too expensive to sit around doing nothing for one heavy weapon.

Split the DA in squads of 5 with no upgrades or 2x catapults (5+ invuln is not worth the cost in my experience, and i love that model too :P) and make the serpents all shuricannon with vectored engines. Remember multiple units can embark in the same transport.

With Eldrad casting 3 powers (doom, guide, executioner i assume) the farseer would mostly be for smite which you get from spiritseers for cheaper plus access to more runes of battle.

With the points saved you can invest in more Reapers or an added squad of shining spears which are strong with Ynnari and kinda sturdy with protect. Also Hemlocks are amazing, as are Crimson Hunters if you feel weak on the anti large things.

 

What i'd imagine for a tough 2200 list:

Ulthwe battalion:

HQ:

Eldrad

Spiritseer

Troops:

Guardians (20) 2x Shuriken Cannon

Guardians (20) 2x Shuriken Cannon

Dire Avengers (5)

 

Ulthwe battalion:

Autarch with Swooping Hawk Wings

Spiritseer

Troops:

Dire Avengers (5)

Dire Avengers (5)

Dire Avengers (5)

 

Ynnari Spearhead:

Hq:

Yvraine

FA:

Shining Spears (7)

HS:

Dark Reapers (10) Tempest Launcher

Dark Reapers (3) Tempest Launcher

Dark Reapers (3) Tempest Launcher

 

Protect the Reapers out of LOS or in the serpents turn 1, shoot something off the board with word of the phoenix. Shining Spears might get quicken for a turn one charge, otherwise protect for 2+/3++, Guardians deepstrike turn 2 to kill hordes or as speedbump. Protect the 10 man Reaper squads (ideally out of LOS with fire and fade).

Now i go wash myself reeeeeeaaaaaal hard :P


No pity.

No remorse.

No fear.
