PostSubject: How many Psykers is too many?   Thu Sep 15 2016, 15:02

A little background first, I've only recently got back into the hobby and started playing again with a few friends, between us we will have a Necron decurion, a tau hunter thing, space marine gladius, Orks, Blood Angels and Lastly Eldar (Me).

Now into the question, how may Psykers is considered too many?

the list I'm currently looking at contains, 10 Warlocks and 3 Farseers at 1850 is that too many? with the revised rules coming out of the faq about warp powers.

the list is supposed to be a Saim Hann/Ulthwe hybrid so they are all on jet bikes.

All comments are welcome, the more I can learn the better. Very Happy

Too many? I dont think that phrase relates to psykers these days. The more you have, the more you are able to shut down the enemies psychic phase (using your deny the witch rolls).

If you are eldar, and putting points into psychers rather than scatterbikes, I would be happy regardless as to the numbers Razz

TBH, that is fine. 3 Farseers may be a little much, but you do you.

Just make sure you have enough other units to benefit from your psychic buffs, and to grab objectives.

I run seven warlocks, two Farseers, a Dreamer, and a prince (17 WC base) and it's still not always enough.

Thanks for the insight, I may not have enough units to benefit from all the buffs.

I plan on running a Warhost something along the lines of,

Windrider host
3x5 jet bikes with Warlock
3xvipers

Seer council

Engines of Vaul
3x fire prisms

it would give me 19 WC base but only around 7 units to buff.

I don't think you'll have any problems finding powers to cast.

I often run 4 farseers, eldrad, and 7 warlocks. People tend to loathe my psychic phase.

That's a lot of warp charges, how do you go about making the most of it? if you don't mind me asking.

I don't really publish the details online, since I use this at large, national level tournaments competitively, but I'll be happy to PM you the details.
