So, now with 6 weeks and around 10 games under my belt, I’d like to share my newest list and experiences so far with hopes to provide. : Warhammer 40, Codex: Craftworld Eldar (): Gavin Thorpe, David Gallagher, etc.: Books. Codex: Craftworlds is a seriously awesome book. Index Eldar struggled, and there was a reason everyone was playing Ynnari. Now however.

Hemlocks are powerful fliers even without the added durability, S12 auto-hitting shots will make short work of MEQs, Monsters and Tanks crattworld, though the limited number of shots launched per turn makes it less effective against horde-based armies directly.
Universal [ edit ] Standard strategems that can be used by any and all Craftworlds, as well as Ynnari. Autarchs again have incredible flexibility that let them fill whatever niche you may need in your detachment. Code Attack Choice Recommendations: Comparatively, Swooping Hawks are cheaper, can deploy and redeploy at will, are longer ranged and able to deal with larger clumps of models better than the Spiders can.
Runes of Fate T1 Doom — Coddx yes and more yes every game no question. Warlocks as secondary HQs are a must, as stacking the Conceal power with other to hit modifiers is what makes Alaitoc units so incredibly hard to kill. If you hit, do D3 mortal wounds instead of rolling to wound.
Codex: Craftworld Eldar (3rd Edition) – Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum
Note that this is the only way that Ynnari armies get to take relics, as they can never have a Craftworlds Warlord so crafhworld get the 1st “free” relic. Shining Spears stole the spotlight when it comes to Saim-Hann’s Fast Attack choices, as their immense threat range makes hit and run tactics particularly potent given their re-rollable charges.
Finally it can be a nice option to get a unit back into cover after it has finished off a unit in the shooting phase for Non-Ynnari. Some units, like Jetbikes, overcome this disadvantage with superior speed and mobility. Select a Wraith Construct model, and it regains 1d3 codrx lost earlier.
They won’t be using Battle Focus anyway, so going Ynnari is a flat upgrade with Yvraine turning them into beasts. Not a right or wrong way I like the red more than blue anyways to play them. Submit a new text post. However, one caveat caused by the Codex: If you lose enough to take a Morale test that squad is beyond combat effectiveness anyway. The Avatar of Khaine and Asurmen are probably the two most potent, and also expensive. Incredible for your Shining Spears as they benefit greatly from being able to fall back while abusing FLYshoot and charge again.
They can also be used in a Webway Strike, popping up 9″ from an enemy unit and filling it with anywhere from 20 single elf squad to 80 two elf squads shuriken shots that re-roll 1s to hit. The sad truth is: If you don’t have Yvraine, Alaitoc can instead field an Autarch with a Fearless aura, allowing you to safely spam multiple large units that all re-roll 1s to hit, and can take an incredible punching from range. Swooping Hawks are perfect candidates for your Fast Attack slots.
Considering how a properly positioned Eldar unit is critical, this can be a good backup plan. Warp Spiders are more expensive, but they’re sturdier and able to handle MEQ targets better than the Hawks can. This means that you won’t get the Craftworld Bonuses for Titans – as awesome as -1 to hit or count as double-wound Titans would be, we won’t have it. Need re-roll support and an extra Fusion gun for your Fire Dragons?
At the start of an enemy shooting phase, pick a unit of Alaitoc Rangers in cover.
Wave Serpents can comfortably fit a squad of 5 blades or guard accompanied by a Spiritseer or Yvraine or both if you wish!
But getting crsftworld use out of the wraithlord requires having the means to force your opponent to deal with it, whether that’s because it’s advancing with your forces or because you have enough long range superiority to force your opponents to move into it’s grasp.
Counts as a Rune of Battle. For most cases, achievement is purely situational. It is also the ideal Craftworld for a vehicle heavy list, or for maxing out footdar infantry unit sizes due to their built in commissar-esk rules the old commissars, before the dreaded Chapter Approved. Regardless of elddar choice, a unit or two of Striking Scorpions makes for an ideal assassination unit, especially if accompanied by Karandras for the extra bite. This does stack with Striking Scorpion Exarchs or Scorpions buffed by Karandras, and can definitely make that unit of Banshees or Wraith Coddx even more horrifying.
Craftworld Specific [ edit ] Strategems which can naturally only be used by their specific craftworld in an attempt to augment what those forces already specialize in. Guardian Defenders are another obvious choice. If you’re planning a list with a lot of longer range elements like the dark reapers, I think it’s a good decision.
Alaitoc wraiths, with wraithseer using webway strike, not eldaar. Swooping Hawks enjoy extra move actions for Grenade Pack trolling, and eldaf shots in one turn is still 80 fucking shots in one turn. Iyanden is the best Craftworld by far craftworrld fielding units such as these, as the damage table ruins their effectiveness in other craftworlds.
That taking Asuryani unit as a part of Ynnari detachment just gives them Ynnari keyword, while not stripping them of asuryani so they are still viable for casting all those powers. Applicable Windrider Host Units: For example, if Eldrad is your Warlord, he must take Fate Reader.
General Movement Psychic 7th Fortifications. Wrath of the Dead 1CP: Dark Reapers are always a solid choice as well, should you opt for the Footdar approach with your army. If you want to see the game table flip: Leave the rest of your detachments as pure Craftworlds. Too hard to understand. You cannot use both Cloud Strike and Webway Strike in the same game, you have to choose one or the other.
Your opponent’s gotta be REALLY careful not to get his deep striking unit shot to shit from Dark Reapers who could see them, or even humble guardians taking down a Lictor before it could do shit to them.
