Getting back into playing games After missing most of 8th and 7th, starting with a small force and building on it.

Do you have a recommendation between these two lists and/or how to improve them? Not looking for total optimization but don’t want to get tabled, either. Usually playing against Nids and Marines.

Thanks!

I decided to play a solo game between the two lists. Rolled for mission and got Sabotage. Craftworlders were attacker, Drukhari defenders. As an aside, remember when the Deldar had a special rule that they were always the attacker in any mission?

Anyways, set up the Raiders around the objective with the Wyches mounted inside. Everything but the Dire Avengers on the board for the CWE and opened fire.

Over the next several turns I saw the shuriken cannons rip apart the Raiders and the Wyches annihilate the Dire Avengers.

In the end, the Drukhari had almost nothing facing the full vehicular might of the Craftwolders. An army that had no infantry left with which to sabotage the objective and thus lost the mission.

Winner: DRUKHARI

I played the the Craftworlders against Tyranids this past weekend.

Tyranids
Hive tyrant
Genestealers
Hormagants
Carnifex

Mission: Blitz
Attacker: Tyranids
Defender: Craftworld Aeldari

Dire Avengers and Farseer were set up in the front line deployment zone while the Vypers and War Walkers were in the second line deployment zone. The Tyranids were set up in their zone, big bugs behind the littles.

The early game went to the Aeldari with quick victory points given up by the units of genestealers and hormagants. After that, I focused fire on the hive tyrant. Got him down to one wound before the game ended in turn seven. All surviving Tyranid units were in the front line deployment zone.

Lost the Dire Avengers, Farseer, and scatter laser War Walker.

RESULT: 4vp to 3vp for the Tyranids.
