Craftworld Eldar Post FAQ List

Postby The cosmic serpent » Mon Apr 30, 2018 12:32 pm

I played against an eldar army that I really liked the core of this weekend. With a few modifications I created a list that I think amps up the power level but still high lights the Eldar players MVP units. I have shifted some of the units into a Ynnari detachment with Yvraine. The guardians and reapers go in the webway, the airwing forms a congo line across the front of my deployment zone to set up a block to prevent any fast moving turn1 opponent units. Rangers push out or onto objectives. Skyrunners hang out behind the airwing in front of Yvraine.

Turn 1 I drop the reapers down, if I'm going second I may drop the guardians as well depending on if my opponent has moved forward. Otherwise I save them for turn 2 to decimate a unit in my opponents DZ. Skyrunners and planes move up and hit some targets hard.
