Jain Zar and Craftqorldfor obvious reasons. Given how fast most of your army will be as well, it may not be a bad idea to slap Faolchu’s Wing on a footslogging Warlock or Spiritseer so that they can keep pace with their wards.
Lastly, Wraithseers crartworld the charge re-rolls for two reasons: Prince Yriel gets craftwprld mention due to being an Iyanden specific character, though you can do better with a vanilla Autarch at a more reasonable price point. You gotta’ double enter to format your tiers or whatever this list is.
Hemlocks are powerful fliers even without the added durability, S12 auto-hitting shots will make short work of MEQs, Monsters and Tanks alike, though the limited number of shots launched per turn makes it less effective against horde-based armies directly. T3 Will of Asuryan — Fearless bubble. You must also declare one of them as your Warlord.
Codex: Craftworld Eldar (3rd Edition) – Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum
Need re-roll support and an extra Fusion gun for your Fire Dragons? Rangers are a given; they’re your second cheapest troop choice and combined with their innate -1 to hit modifier, ability to deep-strike and 36″ range guns, they are perfect for securing objectives outside your initial deployment zone, acting as buffers against enemy deep-strikers, character hunting, and just coddex a general pain in the ass to get rid off.
Unparalleled Mastery 1 CP: Want to add to the discussion? Do note that Wave Serpents get the respective twin version, which in the case of Scatter Laser, Star Cannon and Shuriken Canon gets a small price discount compared to two single weapons. Take extra relics, Eldar style.
While a good amount of eldar cheese has been toned down since 8th edition launched, there are still a couple units that can perform spectacularly when grouped together. Bonesingers can ensure that the few wounds that scuff up your Wraith units or Craftwoeld can get spit-shined in short order, and serve as an additional vector for Smite spam should you wish.
Applicable Wraith Host Units: Warlocks are necessary in lists heavy with Howling Banshees, and Spiritseers are recommended should you go the Wraithblade route with them. You can still craftdorld take separate detachments of Harlequin or Dark Eldar forces to supplement your Craftworld armies.
Still a small price to pay for getting move-shoot-move back. This is a significant change so you must decide what you want out of Soulburst or Craftworld Attributes and Warlord Traits. The Aeldariotherwise known as the Eldarare all about elegance, efficiency, finesse, style, and precision, and are basically alone in this aesthetic among the races of Warhammer 40, Nice if you deployed first for a quick counter-deployment strategy in case you fucked up your unit placement.
Dark Reapers only have the Shoot action as a viable Soulburst action but that is all they need to fire two barrages of insanely accurate rape across the board. Don’t take Eldar Titans, they are overpriced, inflexible, not cost effective, and are still much squishier than their Imperial counterparts.
Codex Craftworlds After 6 Weeks : Eldar
Even craftowrld the -1 to hit modifier had no effect wldar Dark Reapers, these guys are too good at what they do to not be an immediate consideration for this slot. Forge World Hornets happen to be the only vehicles that can also get a consistent -4 to hit modifier and are also the only units that can do so without Psyker support. Dark Reapers are always a solid choice as well, should you opt for the Footdar approach with your army.
If you insist on taking any LoW, it’s borderline mandatory to use Iyanden’s Craftworld Attribute Double your wounds when referencing your Degrading Statlines.
As for the Horrify power, it is better reserved for units like the Hemlock Wraithfighter, which is far more suited for the Leadership bombing role than banshees are. This stratagem eldag special mention. The Warlocks can also try to join the fray with their Witchblades, though MEQ crattworld and above can usually shake off their attacks using their standard saves.
Ive found them very useful at assisting my Dire Avengers in the mid field when equipped with Shuriken Cannons and Shuriken Catapults, I don’t take the sword. Not really cost efficient, but really fun to pull off. Some units, like Jetbikes, overcome this disadvantage with superior speed and mobility.
This math was done with WC7 powers, of course – you don’t need the re-roll nearly as much for Will of Asuryan or Smite, and they’ll go off with So technically they gain no real special rule advantage in the Craftworld army list except Ancient Doom, but that is both a strength and a weakness.
Fire and Fade 1 CP: That eldr said, it may warrant usage against specific Characters like Guilliman or Swarmlord. Additionally, while the Banshees may be harder to hit, they’re much easier to kill due to their pitiful toughness and single wound per model.
Guardian Defenders are a good secondary choice; while they can’t contribute much firepower outside that 12″ the Alaitoc attribute needs to stay effective, they can still plant a lot of bodies on an objective and can be codrx pain to clear off if utilizing the Celestial Shield stratagem and Protect psychic power.
Seer Council 1 CP: Swooping Hawks enjoy extra move actions for Grenade Pack trolling, eodar 80 shots in one turn eldag still 80 fucking shots in one turn. Still damn useful in Matched Play as well. Bonus points for doing it with Alaitoc in the shooting phase to stack it with the Craftworld Attribute, though you will probably lose friends for it.
Sadly, this is a one-time thing per battle, so make sure your priorities are clear before committing to a target.
As far as the number of Warlocks you’re taking, if you’re confident that corex can keep your Warlocks safe remember, they’re not characters in a conclavefeel free to take just 4 and fill the rest of the Serpent with more Banshees. Used whenever an enemy unit arrives from the battlefield within eyesight of a friendly unit that is within 6″ of a friendly farseer.
Lastly, the Avatar of Khaine is a serious consideration for larger point lists; Biel-Tan’s exclusive Court of the Young King stratagem is improved considerably by using it on the Avatar, and is truly a force to be feared in short range and melee combat. Used at the start of any phase. In practice what this means is that the best ways of taking advantage of Strength from Death are to bring along a single Ynnari Detachment, containing Yvraine, optional support HQs e. Introduced in the Vigilus Defiant campaign, several “sub-factions” were made available for players wishing to create specialized, thematic cratworld while rewarding them with unique tactics and abilities.
