PostSubject: Reserves without Eldar: Aegis, Bunker or Bastion?   Wed Apr 29 2015, 18:12

Hi fellow Archons/Succbi and Hamounculi,

I am thinking of a way to manipulate my reserve rolls. Does anyone of you have a viable argument why I should take a Bastion over a Bunker? I experienced a Lack of LOS blocking terrain in all (few) tournaments I ever went to. So I am considering a Bastion because you actually can hide skimmers behind it. The Aegis is probably out because I only can think of a Cronos to stay there without being shot instantly. I don't need a Cronos where my Aegisis deployed Smile How tall is the Bunker, can you actually benefit from it? Is 20 points worth the "up"grade? Who would sit on my comms relay? I actually thought about 3 Inccubi because of repell and counter charge. Also, good armour saves against crumbling floors and roofs. Also thinkable would be lanceborn because they have some range. But would I not set my fortification behind cover, so probably not out front? I am glad to hear your thoughts about that!

You could try an infantry heavy list. That could be worth a try.

Infantry as solution to the missing cover? I once thought about that, a friend had great success in 4th/5th with orc Style DE XD
I imagine 60+ warriors with SF-Archons and Haemies. I have to do that one time.

But for now I had the corpse thief claw in mind with some WWP Grots as backup. And those I would like to get when needed..

The bastion is pretty tall, but not super wide. You could hide a raider in its vertical profile, but most vehicles will be able to get LOS by sidling one way or the other at cruising speed.

You what goes really, really well with an Aegis Line?

MANDRAKES.

They are far more durable behind an Aegis Line that other infanttry, and perfect for sitting there with a Comm Realy (and not too shabby once set loose and the Relay isn't needed anymore).

Mandrakes! That is true, they also are quiet potent to secure the backfield against small units of intruders. I usually alway squeeze three in to counter scouts or infiltrators and I like them. Which makes me think, can you go to ground and still re-roll reserves?

Also, if the Bastion is not so wide, would a Bunker at least give a cover safe to a raider chassis? Anyone here who owns one?

They don't need to go to ground. They got a 2+ cover there. Just keep flame weapons at bay. And Tau of course.

I just wanted to know if Warriors are still an Option if you want that 2+. Aegis gives a 2+ if you go to ground, right? Or wyches even..
