So after great success with my last elf army list, which was mostly footslogging, i decided to spice things up even more and add in another detachement of Corsairs!
The list is only now in its final stages, and il go through it more in detail below.
OBS: This list is semi-competitive, trying to minimize the use of raider/venom transport, but will hopefully still be able to put up a good fight.
Shimmer-shield (5++ for him and squad)
Troops: (all are fulfilling minimum troop req for my 3 armies)
Cast of players
5 Reaver band
6 Shadow Specters
10 Striking Scorpions (aspect host)
(Corsairs) ^Prince goes here^
10 Malevolent Band
- Jet packs
- 6 Venom blades
- Combat Drugs
1 Raider ^Harlies go here with Autarch^
6 Swooping hawks (aspect host)
8 Warpspiders (aspect host)
Ok so lets have a look at this cluster**** of different armies.
As you can see im running many different types of units, with a lot of flavor binding them all together.
The few units which are in transports are the only ones who cannot close distance on the field on their own, and basically the rest of the army deep-strikes/infiltrates or has jump packs equipped.
This is the theme, a fast precision pirate eldar force with a drug habit.
Swooping, scourges and sometimes Warpsiders and other jump units deep strike, if im feeling up for it, more units might, giving the Autarch much value from his +1 reserve roll shenanigans.
Rangers and scorpions infiltrate.
The only thing im really concerned about right now is my lack of anti air and anti tank, I think there are few armies I would have trouble with when it comes down to shooting units.
anything armor 12 or lower is handles nicely by many things, warp spiders come to mind for example.
But if we are talking 13-14 AV then I basically only have scourges for shooting, backed up by Shadow specters to some degree and swooping hawks in close combat.
Tell me what you think!
To me the army looks and feel cool, but im not sure about everything yet.
To get the corsairs in I traded away: 1 Razoring, 8 warpsiders 6 swooping hawks and 6 Striking scorpions .
Thanks for the help!
