Blood Angel and Eldar Allies are In
Man, was reading yes the truth hurts and saw this link. So its official, my flesh tearers and eldar can ally. When I get my army back from frontline gaming, I will have a solid 1500 point army painted for the table top. I'm thinking that I want to use my remaining 500 points to buy an Autarch for the +1 to reserve roll. I also figure with flyers coming into the game from reserve always that a reserve roll boast for the tearers could come in handy. Keeping in mind my previous 1500 point list for the tearers I figure the following 500 point Eldar list would be a fun ally to include.
Autarch - spider pack, fusion gun, powersword, mandiblaster
5 Scorpions + 1 Exarch - claw, stalker, shadow strike
6 Warp Spiders
I suspect that Rangers will be a good troop choice in 6th. They can always scout onto an objective off the hop for extra points. All I really care about is my +1 reserve roll. Though there is a good chance that the flesh tearers and eldar might not be able to share abilities between the two detachments. I have not read anywhere what the different tiers of cooperation allows the different armies to do. If this is the case then I likely will plan out a 500 point list using a farseer.
