How to kit my wraithknight?
« on: April 07, 2017, 09:16:44 PM »
so at my local store, you have a decent amount of imperial knights, riptides and a monolith here and there, so I'm trying to figure out how to kit out my WK, any suggestions?

Well it depends, if you wanna go purely at the Knights and stuff use the D-Cannons.

The sword is rather risky against shooting armies like Tau, Eldar and Crons, due to Overwatch.

Personally i would recommend you don't assemble him with the weapons and test the different options and take the one that works best for you. ;)

Cheers mate

I use the d-cannons and 2 scatter lasers. That way when i soul burst i can reach out and punch up to 4 units out of my turn sequence with shooting. Its super devastating.

If you are running a Ynnari army then the wraithcannons are the way to go. Being able to shoot potentially 6 times in a game turn is amazing.

If you are running a normal craftworld eldar army and using only a single wraithknight I prefer to take the sword and shield loadout. In this case I treat my wraithknight as more of a distraction carnifex then something that is actually going to kill lots of things every game. The sword knight is more duarable with the invo save and I find it allows me to dictate board control more than the wraithcannons knight particularly in deployment.
