Eldar Wasp

Post by Wild on Fri Feb 18, 2011 1:38 pm

Seems Forge World been very busy, a new Eldar model is coming out: http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/New_Stuff/ELDAR-WASP-ASSAULT-WALKER.html

Experimental Rules: http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Downloads/Product/PDF/w/Wasp.pdf

The most shocking thing I'd have to say about this model is this, it's a troop choice in the Eldar Codex, that and it seems to have robbed the Dark Eldar some insane assault shenanigans.

Yea, just throw these into some kabalite warriors. I think they are great. Just the visuals of these walkers shooting and jumping all over the field is awesome. Hope chris gets these so we can play against him. I know he can use these with what he has to great effect.

Really stupid. The jump move is both OP and retarded. Doesn't assist its role, which is shooting, and can tie up even space marines for turns (done it plenty with normal walkers). Same overpriced eldar weapons lead to them being barebones along with the rest of the eldar army.

If you see these they're just going to be at its cheapest, shuriken cannon x2 for 10 pts, and assaulting from across the board.

Oh god, just noticed that they're a troop choice. Really really dumb.

Nice to see BS4, however.

Yessir. You can't hide from those things. If you can shoot them, go ahead. If not, jump over 24 inches and assualt something. Strength 5 is good enough to hurt most vehicles, and wound most things on 3s. I don't think they're over costed. Can you imagine a 5 point weapons discount on something like that? Shennanigans good sir!

Oh and I forgot to mention they're BS4. For shits and giggles you could replace the war walker units with wraithlords. Then you could tie up everything in CC and win by literally contesting everything and hoping to beat off one unit. At least it's themed.

Meh, should just drop the jump to 12" and allow them to shoot. As well as decreasing the cost of eldar heavy weapons Razz

The jump thing is ludicrous speed. I meant vypers if you want to move and shoot 12 inches.
