Just a rules clarification...

I want to put EML's on my Corsair troops and give them jump packs.  Am I right though, that I wouldn't be able to move & shoot in the same round since the EML is a heavy weapon?  The rules say that missile launchers also can't Snap Fire.

It'd be great if someone could chime in on this to either confirm or deny this.  If you can't move & shoot, then what would be the point of taking EML's with Corsair Troops?  They're meant to be mobile; not stay in one place.

I'm rather sure Jet Pack Infantry get Relentless or Slow and Purposeful~

Yep they do. They can of course move & shoot with full BS.

The rules say that missile launchers also can't Snap Fire.

What? Where in the rules? Why would the Missile Launcher not be able to fire Snap Shots? You can't do it with the little blast, of course, but the S8 shot is no problem to fire as Snap Shot.

From what I've read... any heavy weapon that can produce a blast marker, regardless of firing mode, cannot snap fire.  Missile launchers were specifically mentioned as an example.

Thanks for the clarification on the jet pack rules!

Would there be any value to using Corsairs in an Eldar army or is that a waste of points?

I would not say it's waste of points overall, you get extra Fast Attack and Heavy Support slots, which is always helpful (as these are overcrowded in our codex). Also there's no problem in the (obligatory) Troops section, as basic Corsairs are ok and have access to nice Dedicated Transports.

What I am struggling with, is the HQ slot. Can't get rid of the feeling, I am (truly) wasting points here.

Unfortunately it kinda does feel like you're paying too much for an autarch wanabe with a fancy airstrike. If you don't wanna waste points I'd just go with the void dreamer. The powers are Meh but it can take some cool gear. :P

Exactly my thoughts!

I am not sure, can the Webway Portal be used with your CWE allies? (DE portals can't, sadly...) If yes, my Ulthwé Strike Force problem is solved and I'll start building a Void Dreamer as soon as I get from work today ;)

Too bad the Void Dreamers can't change their powers for at least the worse schools, like Pyromancy or Telekinesis...

Oh Ramses, I might have good news for you^^

Reading the Wargear entry it says "ANY of your units arriving from Reserve". Ulthwe w/ Corsair Allies may be valuable for you~

Yay another one joins the space elf pirates!
I have to say, although it sucks that voiddreamers can't roll on other diciplines at least they get 3 powers. And hey, who knows what can happen in the next year or so! ;)

The army list will most certainly be receiving an update either in the form of a downloadable .pdf or in the form of IA 11: 2nd Edition~
