Something New Today

My New Project.

Sooooooo. In case you have been living in a fantasy shaped (or LOTR shaped – lol as if) hole for the last 2 years, you will be aware that 6th edition us upon us this weekend. To celebrate, my local store is opening at midnight, and running a tourney from next week.

Here is one of my army lists

Farseer, Runes of Warding, Spirit Stones, Guide, Doom. 135 Points

Dire Avengers (6) Exarch With Bladestorm, Wave Serpent – Shuriken Cannons 199 Points

Guardians (10) Shuriken Cannon 85 Points

Fire Dragons (5) 80 Points

499 Points

So, Eldar? Oooo Scary. I fancy a change, and have been playing High Elves. I'm thinking I might try this list, see how it plays. The Dire Avengers drive by with Farseer to guide/doom combo to hopefully maul of a unit in one turn with Bladestorm. I think I would fall down against horde armies, and maybe box armies. The problem is that I only have short range anti tank. Also, Runes Of warding (take psychic tests on 3D6) I'm hoping will be very broken in this edition!

The Guardians hold the home objective, plus being able wander forwards with the platform. I'm thinking that if 6th turns out the way I think I will, then I'm going to need snipers. Lots of Rangers. Would I buy a bastion for a silly cover save? Maybe. Maybe. I might even make a bastion with a similar footprint to look like Eldar Webway Portals.

So, What do people think? Will this list work at 500 points? Should I just take space marines to learn the new edition?


  1. You'll Certainly get a lot of overwatch shots with shurriken. I wonder if bladestorm is compatible? Might be tempted to take a cheaper power than Doom for the farseer and exchange both for the new cards.
    MantisWarior(if you can work out who that is!)

  2. I guess you probly could overwatch/Bladestorm... that would be nice :)yeah i havent looked at the new cards to much in relation to eldar, and because you pick them randomly, im not overly keen i dont think?

    And no... unless its dan?

  3. Have now finally rwead 6th ed rulebook and pathfinders do look lovely!
    I'm not Dan (and am slightly offended) i'm far more dashing and rogueishly handsome than he!
