    If you have an Iyanden army that consists of mostly Wraithcannon wielding models, and you and your friends don't find that to be fun for your games, then of course you can change it back to S10. The...

    Walkers have been locked in combat at least since 5th edition (don't know about 4th), but it's a new development for Super-heavy Walkers and Gargantuan Creatures. Previously they could just walk away...

    The problem with Nids runs a lot deeper than just how they can deal with GCs/SHWs. The fact that they need to depend on a rather broken and ill thought out rule should highlight that point even....

    I'd had a similar thought of always being Ld 10 for the purposes of Fear checks. As you said, there's too many models that are paying for a useless ability and too much cool wargear that gets left at...

    Since it sounds like you're mostly talking Blood Angels and CSM here, you're in better shape than some of the doomsaying in this thread might suggest.

    Disintegrators - A good option, though...

    4 Attacks stock with 5 on the charge is a colossal number of attacks, especially when comparable points to a 5 man TH/SS squad gets you 6 guys (with one extra from the Abberation). That's 25/31...

    Grotesques are pretty good at killing Termies provided they don't have some way of getting S10 (which admittedly is rare), but you know what else a colossal volume of S5 poison attacks is good for...

    Just played a tournament today, my personal best was 22 victory points, and I believe one guy fielding an all jetbike and 3 Wraithknight list got 26.

    Wyches do, but Wyches have been bad pretty much since 6th edition hit. Just about everything else holds up reasonably to perfectly well. Grotesques and Talos aren't overly concerned with overwatch.

    I'll say it again, that and probably dropping FNP as a default GC rule would balance them just about perfectly. It'll also make me feel not so bad for the Scabiethrax, the Nurgle GC who pays for FNP...
  11. I think the issue is less about Poison and Sniper...

    I think the issue is less about Poison and Sniper not working, but the fact that all GCs come with FNP now by default, and can get a 4+ cover save by having a toe in ruins. Drop FNP (which leaves it...
  12. 1500pt Eldar/Dark Eldar Tournament List

    So here's my stab at a hard-hitting list for a small local tournament coming up. I don't normally build highly competitive lists, so if there's any obvious bases I'm not covering I'd appreciate some...

    I wouldn't either, I just meant to point out that as they are they're pathetically overcosted. Even back in 5th ed I don't think they were worth their points, and that was back when melee was king...

    You don't have to deploy them together necessarily. Jain Zar's ability has a 6'' range so it's not too hard to infiltrate the Scorpions and super-Run your Banshee unit into position to go for...

    I doubt we'd see two profiles for Bloodbrides, but either one would be a great suite of upgrades to give Bloodbrides SOMETHING to make them stand out. Regular wyches definitely still need something...

    Lelith Hesperax has AP2 all the time with a simple pair of daggers, it's hardly a stretch to say other less talented Wyches have a lesser ability. You could very easily represent it as their ability...

    I wouldn't say that at all, honestly I'd probably never buy the other options when I could just take the Starshot option on the Reaper Launcher anyway. No need to pay for the EML for a non-AP3 blast...

    Got something to say, filthy mon keigh?

    But in terms of general utility for the army, you're probably right. I stopped taking the Archon and just opting for a Court of Sslyth and Medusae. In terms...

    And just for clarity's sake, it'd be an 18'' total move, but a 12'' run. 6'' Move plus 6'' Run plus 3'' Acrobatic plus 3'' Falcon's Swiftness. Still pretty sweet, sets you up for an assured turn 2...

    Are you seriously claiming Eldar assault units are broken? Excepting the Wraithknight, which is broken for reasons besides it's melee prowess, name one.

    If you're going to throw the Banshees in a transport you might as well not take them. I'd second Djbz and Powerklaw that as long as you use them somewhat carefully, they should be able to get to the...

    Jmichael has it right. The real question is why you'd bother taking a mediocre melee character in an entirely shooty unit in the first place. Outside of the DA Shrine formation, he's just not worth...

    Pretty much so. All the non-Distortion changes sound like fun,
    fluffy changes that tweak things just enough to make them good. The D weapon changes are by a wide margin the single most broken thing...

    As written I would agree, you need only be equipped with a Harlequin's Kiss to get a KoD attack, you don't have to be actively using it in melee.
