CC Eldar- New eldar player at sunshine

Post by zephel on Sun Sep 26, 2010 4:08 am

any ideas for a good CC Eldar army. I was told at the sunshine to ask for some dude named chris but anybody else can help with advice on how to make this.

P.S. Bought harliquinns and warp spiders that day and i really like how they work. so anyway to get them into a list??

Current list: 1380

Eldrad
3 warlocks w/ destructor. a spiritseer in there
5 Dire avengers w/ blade storm, exarch + duel catapults
10 Storm gaurdians with two flamers
6 harliquinns w/ shadowseer, all with kiss, and two fusion pistols
5 warp spiders w/ withdraw, exarch w/ death spinners
6 banshees w/ exectunior and all abilities
warwalker w/ EML and Brightlance
wraithlord w/ EML and Sword (Duel flamer)
wave serphant w/ TL Bright lance and all vehicle upgrades


what should I add/remove, and around how much would it cost me to make a decent 2000 point cc Eldar list?

CC isn't viable for Eldar atm. They don't have the staying power with low toughness and non-assault vehicles. Meaning they either rough it on foot and die like hooches or they ride in decent vehicles and die like hooches when they get out of their vehicles and look pretty when they can't assault after. Their power weapons are strength 3 and non power weapons are strength 4.... the list gets long. If you absolutely positively have to have a CC ELDAR army, run harlies and pray the enemy doesn't have night vision.

Really? I read somewhere that Eldar were really viable to most styles of play. And why not banshees? The banshee exarch I have is running with str5 power wepon.

Also, somebody said that if i wanted to end up going with a CC eldar, to get an Autarch (or prince yerial) and buy wave serphants. Am I reaaly gonna have to end up buying a bunch of serphants?? cause thats quite a bit of money X_X

A CC oriented army no, but you can use some CC units in your army just fine. But a pure CC focused Eldar army is going to get murdered.

Wait for Dark Eldar maybe? That is pure CC. You could also use your Harliquins. If you really want to try CC Eldar, just go for it. Not every one at the store plays to their army's strength that much anymore. An unorthodox way of playing an Eldar army might get you a couple of wins too.

The problem for Eldar CC is the T3 and a 4+(5+) AS.

Eldar -used- to be able to do some CC, but with 5th ed. assault rules in combination with 5th ed. books- its tough to compete. Its not that eldar can't kill the enemy on the charge, its that they can't last through either the return attacks or the shooting you take when you're standing in the open.

I doubt DE are going to be any different in terms of CC.

Eldar are awesome at shooting - so get in as much of that as you can.

Chris' list basicly involves Wave Serpents flying fast (which grants cover saves and makes you harder to hit in CC) and shooting the crap out of everything. Wardancers in the back also shooting the crap out of everything.

It is quite effective.

There were also a couple of other vehicles in there - one might have been a fire prism.
