Eldar – Cities of Death Test List #1

1250 Pts – Eldar Roster

HQ: Farseer (1#, 98 pts)
1 Farseer, 98 pts ((pp.26, 28 & 60 Eldar); Psyker; Doom ; Fleet; Ghosthelm; Rune Armour; Runes of Warding; Shuriken Pistol; Singing Spear; Independent Character)

A pretty minimalist Farseer, but it’s an important one–for at least psychic defense alone.

Troops: Storm Guardians (11#, 130 pts)
10 Storm Guardians, 130 pts ((p.39 & p.64 Eldar); Fleet; Close Combat Weapon; Shuriken Pistol; Flamer x1; Fusion Gun x1)
1 Warlock ((p.27-28 & p.60 Eldar); Psyker; Destructor ; Fleet; Rune Armour; Shuriken Pistol; Singing Spear)

Troops: Storm Guardians (11#, 130 pts)
10 Storm Guardians, 130 pts ((p.39 & p.64 Eldar); Fleet; Close Combat Weapon; Shuriken Pistol; Flamer x1; Fusion Gun x1)
1 Warlock ((p.27-28 & p.60 Eldar); Psyker; Destructor ; Fleet; Rune Armour; Shuriken Pistol; Singing Spear)

This is probably the only time that Storm Guardians may have worth, so I’m going to proxy 10 to see if they’re worth getting a couple of boxes.

Troops: Wraithguard (11#, 394 pts)
10 Wraithguard, 394 pts ((pp.46 & 62 Eldar); Fearless; Wraithsight; Wraithcannon x10)
1 Spiritseer (Warlock) ((p.27-28 & p.60 Eldar); Psyker; Destructor ; Fleet; Spiritseer Upgrade; Rune Armour; Shuriken Pistol; Singing Spear)

The Anchor of the army.

Heavy Support: Wraithlord (1#, 125 pts)
1 Wraithlord, 125 pts ((pp.47 & 66 Eldar); Unit Type: Monstrous Creature; Fearless; Wraithsight; Flamer x2; Wraithsword; Missile Launcher)

Heavy Support: Wraithlord (1#, 120 pts)
1 Wraithlord, 120 pts ((pp.47 & 66 Eldar); Unit Type: Monstrous Creature; Fearless; Wraithsight; Flamer x2; Wraithsword; Scatter Laser)

Finally a place where Wraithlords won’t go down first turn

Fast Attack: Vyper Squadron (1#, 60 pts)
1 Vyper Squadron, 60 pts ((pp.41 & 65 Eldar))
1 Vyper (Shuriken Cannon; Shuriken Cannon)

This is my harassment unit. I might switch it out for a trio or pair of scoring Jetbikes

Elite: Howling Banshees (10#, 192 pts)
9 Howling Banshees, 192 pts ((pp.31 & 63 Eldar); Fleet; Banshee Mask; Power Weapon; Shuriken Pistol)
1 Howling Banshee Exarch (Fleet; Acrobatic; War Shout ; Banshee Mask; Shuriken Pistol; Executioner)

These ladies will be my charge/countercharge unit. Elf booty got soul. Elf girls like to rock and roll!

On a side note, with all the excitement about the Necrons “soon to be released” I decided to play a test game with 1250 points of Necrons vs Tyranids (and they got their metal booties handed to them!). I officially feel sorry for all the poor fellas who have been playing Necrons in 5th edition. Anyhoo I’ve decided to rededicate myself to my Eldar while they are still a somewhat competitive codex.
