Been awhile since my last post. Have not been in the hobby much with work and enjoying the summer. Winter is coming so I figure I should have more time for the hobby. In the mean time I've been struggling to come up with my Eldar army. When the codex fist dropped I was all over the power lists. When I first started reading the rules all I saw was wave serpents and wraithknights. With marines out and the almighty grav gun I'm not so sure wriathknights are as optimal anymore. Still a strong choice but not the beast he was prior to September.
With that in mind I decided to stop focusing on the best list I can build to a list I want to build. Alaitoc. I want lots of rangers and scorpions. Throw in some war walkers and avenger wave serpents The goal is to build a unique army I can call my own but still can hold its own. Off the top of my head I'm thinking of a list like this:
Farseer - singing spear
10 Scorpions- exarch, power claw
10 Storm Guardians - 2 fusion guns, wave serpent, holo, lasers
2 x 10 Avengers - wave serpent, holo, lasers
2 x 5 Rangers
5 Jet Bikes
3 War Walkers - star, lasers
I think this would be a fun themed list to build and play. Lots of character with the Scorpion Exarch. Will it shine probably not. Could it sucker punch someone who does not see it coming: yes. At any rate not sure what my Eldar army will look like when its done. I do know that I want to make sure I build a list that is not cookie cutter.
