Community: Introductions Here! / Hey Everyone
« Last post by Prospero on March 19, 2017, 03:51:23 PM »
I just noticed this welcome section! Glad to be here. From the north central states, visiting the south for some school currently.

I started wargaming with Eldar in 3rd edition and fantasy with Bretonnia shortly after, I think the last editions I've played was maybe 5th? So I've been sitting in the background for a while still painting and playing the occasional historic game but now I'm getting back into it with some chaos this time and possibly venturing into the basement to dig up some old models and dust them off too.

Well my Yncare sucked and died in two turns after killing a CL and that's it, but the wraithguard and Wraithord were aces. The lord HoW the last HP from a Rhino then went into another squad, killing them in two rounds. One Archon with just CCW and Pistol killed 5 marines. The wraithblades killed some bikes but got held up and whittled down by bezerkers.  Was losing early on Obj's but took the game big time by turn 5.

The new Rubricae in Traitor Legions get epic flamers so despite being expensive, they can be equipped to deal with elite squads of heavy infantry or mobs of light troops.

Also, some of new relics and psychic powers are funny as heck.

I've been planning on picking it up, on a bit of a budget at the moment so what I have is what I'll be playing with for a while but I do want to plan ahead if that makes sense. I'll be building some of them into a kill-team for the meantime also.

Can't use the raider unless you plan to mount them in your first turn.

that's the object. while you can't start out in them you can still get in raiders turn 1. it's a bit extra on your part but it gets the wraiths or banchees where they need to be

You also don't loose any movement on the transports. You just have to bre prepared in case you dont get first turn and wither that fire while you get into the transports.

If you haven't already, take a look at Traitor Legions. For any army built upon one of the legions it is a must and will go a good way to helping you out.

I'm also starting up Thousand Sons, using the burning of Prospero as a start mixing in the old armor and the new kits. I'm also realizing the rubric marines I bought are very expensive and it seems they really are only good against expensive power armor, anything else seems overkill. I only have the generic codex but my local group is pretty casual I don't think they'd have an issue using the Tzneetch daemon kit as cultists.

Anyway I'm rambling but I'm looking for tips as well, been out of the hobby since 4th ed so I have a lot of catching up.

Well good to know that it works, but if it is effective is a different question.

The same thing could be done with just normal dark eldar with the special rule some characters have that count the turn as one higher for power from pain with at least a 6+ fnp with out having to worry about bubbles to much. It is also a bit of a point sink, but it will still be fine founding out.

So it's a roundabout way of doing it, but that interaction checks out.  The Yncarne gives FNP to Ynnari Faction only, not Dark Eldar or the Aeldari, so the Dark Eldar you want to buff with the Cronus must be in the Reborn Warhost so they have both Factions, but it does look like you can get a bubble of FNP 4+++.

But they could still offer up soul burst if killed and spirit probe would work on any DE I took in Ynnari right?

I am kinda of just trying to use the Avatar and a Cronos for a bubble of 4+ FNP, it might not be the best of ideas though....
