General Discussion / Re: 8th Ed. Are you ready?

3+ save for a Morkanaut is surprisingly low, it will be interesting to see what modifiers various weapons have.

I agree with everything you just said. I love running one of each aspect.  And guardians should be cheaper but not as good. I've been playing Eldar since 2nd and love the older style armies. BS3 equivalent jetbikes would make them not too cheap again.  I think Autarchs are really going to suffer without a high initiative and they will end up dying to marine sergeants if something isn't done to balance their lack of Init.

I agree, some armies will either need something to replace their high initiative or be reduced in points but also playability.  Eldar can be made fast to ensure the charge but what about Blood Angels.

While some units need nerfing, general Eldar will need to see a points change with their high Initiative Stat going the way of the Dodo.

If the initiative stat is gone with no other mechanic, I hope there are some serious points adjustments as Orks will benefit compared to a Marine who benefits compared to Nids and Eldar.

The Fracture of Beil-tan was out a few weeks before the date give, the Rise of the Primarch after. Both now as obsolete as each other. It's a good idea but sucks that people buying something from the same campaign end up being treated differently.

So the stealer army chose to set up a small amount of units first and go first then set up loads of infiltrators really close to my army, 2 units getting to assault 1st turn including 20 purestrains and the Patriarch, I was bricking it until I stole the initiative! Although I still lost 2 DA to shooting before the game had started.
Eldar turn one strength from death turns 2 dead units into 4 and two dead sentinels. I then got off invis(1st time I've got it) on the wraithblades, spirit seer and shadow seer which then stayed on them for the rest of the game. I assaulted the Patriarch and guard and wore it down over 4 combat phases, using ancestors grave to get more attacks, WS and I. This nurfed Nat's unit into uselessness due to hitting and wounding on 6's. rolling 5 6's from 51 dice didn't help him either.
Stealer turn 1, no damage caused although 3 obj markers were held for a D3 roll of 3 vp and he was in the lead by 1.
Eldar turn 2, Yncarne and warp spiders add are here, plenty of psychic powers get off and the warp spiders destroy a rock grinder and then kill 3 purestrains from the smaller unit. not readif a obj card properly meant I lost the chance to roll a D3 but I still lead 5-3.
Stealer turn 2 a unit returns but does no damage but 1 more obj is picked up from issuing a challenge although by this point the stealers were dead and the Patriarch died to the wraithblades. By this point the shadow seer was clearly the MVP having killed 7 stealers in combat. The farseer had got some powers off, peril'd, rolled a 5 but passed his LD test.
Eldar turn 3, the shadow seer gets some powers off but fails to cause wounds but the fire power of the DA wipe out the last unit the end result was 8-4 to the Ynnari. MSU stealer units played into the SfD rule but it wasn't really needed. The Yncarne took a lot of shots for ovly one wound. The initial firepower of 54 shots from BS5 DA that then got to fire again played a huge part as did the Eldar mini deathstar taking out the biggest Stealer threat for no damage.

Played an impromptu game against Tau last night, 1850pts. Rolled a 2 for warlord trait for my farseer, took two from div one from telepathy and was running around with a squad of 5 D-Cannon that ignored cover, could overwatch on full BS with counter attack and were invisible.  Actually felt bad for the other player.

Sscythes are limited when they DS, the cheaper cannon are a bit better unless you can add another character to make the circle bigger when you deploy.  Swooping hawks with potential of double move are good and cheap for 6, DA can put out a fair amount of damage and scorpions can be quite effective, I killed a 5 man squad of marines with the mandiblasters and exarch then assaulted a dev squad with the soulburst, killed 2 more and held them up in their next shooting phase.

On Saturday I am playing a 1500 point game against Stealer cult and I'm trying a mini star of 5 wraithblades with axes, a spirit seer (so they re-roll 1's) and the song of Ynnaed that is poisoned 2+ and the unit takes a morale check even for one wound.  Then I'm adding a lvl2 shadow seer with the mask so that the check is at -2, plus using his grenade launcher. He will also grant the unit hit and run on his I. Not a massive points sink and could be quite effective. Spirit seer will be taking revenant the shadow seer will take Phantasmology.  I'll let you know how it goes.

Bone maybe, a good contrast to the red but you should have a little of it in your force already.

12
So do that with a Green or Blue would be good.

As an Eldar player I will say they are a nightmare but one wing is probably enough.

14
I would go contrats, maybe dark green with light highlights, Are your BA bright or dark?

When one side is holding they should score less points per obj held and a new player in that size game is bad for everyone, he may take that as what the game is and give up before he started. Any game that size needs at least 2 organisers, 1 per side.
