My first question is this: Should the following list have a Fire Prism or Night Spinner in it?

Secondly, how competitive is this?


Haemonculus - 50

Farseer - 100

3 Wracks, Venom w/2xSC - 95

5 Warriors, Venom w/2xSC - 110
5 Warriors, Venom w/2xSC - 110
5 Warriors, Venom w/2xSC - 110
5 Warriors, Venom w/2xSC - 110

5 Windrider Jetbikes - 85

5 Reavers - 110

Crimson Hunter Exarch - 180

Ravager - 105
Ravager - 105
Ravager - 105

Fire Prism - 125

= 1,500


Okay so, the Haemon, wracks and Farseer chill out on an objective somewhere near the middle of my deployment zone so that the Farseer can twin-link Ravagers/Fire Prism.

The jetbikes start in reserve. If you're unsure about the Reavers, they're there as a cheap harassment unit (mainly Blade-vaning) and to get linkbreaker/contest objectives T5+. They don't have special weapons because I couldn't afford the extra bike and two HLs. Also, all the AT is covered with long ranged twin-linked lance fire.

Thoughts?

I would definitely run a night spinner with this list. You could use the Barrage effect, as well as the S7-8 Large Blast.

I'm not a fan of your 5 man jetbike squads since they really should be brought in multiples of 3 (for the weapon). I'd suggest only bringing one or the other. I think in this instance, since you want your farseer twin-linking your lances, I would drop the Reavers. Buff up your Windriders with another body and 2 cannons. If you wanted to play a more aggressive farseer, drop the windriders and buff up the reavers. Bladevane around casting psychic powers.

Also, the Exarch upgrade on the flier could be debatable at this point level. Up to you, though! Its certainly a good upgrade.

Other than that, looks pretty solid for 1500. 5 venoms and 3 ravagers, along with a flyer and a Eldar Heavy support makes for a solid force.

Unfortunately I can't drop the windriders as I need to have an Eldar troop choice. I don't know what to drop to get 46points to have 2 special weapons in the Reavers squad.

I agree the Exarch upgrade is debatable but I always run it for added reliability.

I really need to try out the Nightspinner. The Fire Prism is the only thing in this list I haven't played in a game so I'm going by how it sounds on 'paper'.

Thanks for the comments! Smile

(Edit) Alternatively, I could drop the reavers all together? I lose the blade-vaning potential though and I'm not sure what to get instead...

D'oh! I had a brain fart. Of course you have to keep the windriders in there.

The reavers cost almost as much as another venom. Perhaps bring another one of those with another scoring unit. =P

Or, drop the reavers, add on some more eldar jetbikes to make the squad bigger, and then use the rest of the points to fill in with Night Shields.

Or get one wind raider to split them in to two different scoring units.

I support Night spinner. Torrent flamer and barrage in same platform.

It does save 10 points and would allow me to bump up the Reavers to have 2 special weapons.
How does this version of the list look to you guys?


Haemonculus - 50

Farseer - 100

3 Wracks, Raider w/Disintegrator - 90

5 Warriors, Venom w/2xSC - 110
5 Warriors, Venom w/2xSC - 110
5 Warriors, Venom w/2xSC - 110
5 Warriors, Venom w/2xSC - 110

3 Windrider Jetbikes - 51

6 Reavers w/2xHL - 156

Crimson Hunter Exarch - 180

Ravager - 105
Ravager - 105
Ravager - 105

Night Spinner - 115

= 1,497


Is it worth swapping a Venom for a Raider to get enough points for a better Reaver build?
