What's worse?

What could be worse than a Space Marine Legion that fell to the Chaos powers and rebelled against everything they once respected? We don't know, but it was probably pretty bad.

Eldar List Build


I'd like to try something different today. Instead of me getting on a soapbox or pulpit, I'd like to hear from the followers and RSS Readers of this blog. Especially you Eldar players.

I Challenge Thee to an Foot-Eldar List Building Exercise!


OK, so here's the deal. Create a 1,000 and/or 1,500 point Eldar List(s) that includes NO tanks. Yes, good ol' fashioned FOOT'DAR (as the interwebs has so graciously deemed to name it). Put a summary of the list below in the Comment Section - don't worry about all the nitty gritty details, just list what the unit is, how many in it, and any paid-for upgrades.

Here's an example

Seer - Spear, RoWard, Doom
Aspect A (10) - Exarch, Exarch Weapon, Exarch Skill
Guardians (16) - Warlock, starcannon
Jetbikes (3) - shucannon
Aspect B (6) - Exarch, Exarch Skill, Exarch Skill


If there are enough responses, then I will compile them in a future post or two and discuss them. I may even be able to create a competition out of it, but we'll see how the response is first... ;-)

There we have it for today. A short one. But hopefully it will be fun for those who post something. TGIF!

  2. Thanks, Marco

    Here's a slightly Alaitoc-themed list. About half of the list is a firebase while the other half is the harassment base.

    Autarch - P-Sword, Fusion, Mandis, Jump Generator

    Warp Spiders (8) - Exarch, Dual Spinner, Powerblades, Surprise Asslt, Withdraw

    Striking Scorpions (6) - Exarch, Claw, Shadow Strike, Stalker

    Striking Scorpions (6) - Exarch, Biting Blade, Shadow Strike, Stalker

    Pathfinders (6)

    Pathfinders (6)

    Guardians & Warlock (11 + 1) - Spear, Embolden, Eldar Missile Launcher

    Dark Reapers (5) - Exarch, Fast Shot

    War Walkers (3) - spirit stones, Starcannon & Scatter Laser (all 3)

    1500 on the nose.

    I feel like the Warp Spider exarch is a bit over tooled, but I want them to Deep Strike if need be, and also get out of combat if they get into one.

  3. Warp Spiders are jump infantry and can always Deep Strike in v5.

    I'll post a list when I get to a computer.

    I might drop something to add singing spears to a couple of the warlocks.

    This is a quick list from the models I like to field. It might not win but it might make my opponent blink.

  5. Limiting myself to models I actually own.

    9 Howling Banshees @ 182 Pts
    Howling Banshee Exarch, Executioner

    9 Striking Scorpions @ 207 Pts
    Striking Scorpion Exarch, Shadowstrike, Scorpion Claw

    12" wide advancing guardian gunline. Led by Avatar making everyone fearless.

    Farseer Fortunes Avatar to keep him alive

    Wraithlords hit armor, as does the Avatar if he gets in throwing range.

    Banshees follow guardians for cover save

    Scorpions and Warwalkers flank to roll up heavy weapon squads and soft side armor.

    I toyed with a list with no Farseer but the Avatar really needs one to really press.

  6. Foot Eldar worked for me in 4th edition. I have not figured it out in 5th edition. I guess Greg Sparks can make it work. It is one is basic around shooting and adds some shooting. I really like warp spiders. They are the star players of this lit.
