Exodites 1500 Points

         

Righto, this is my first list for Eldar Exodites at this stage, being foot orientated with some harlie sauce as well.  Normally, Wraithlords are a far superior choice then Warwalkers, but their presence is too hard to justify in an exodite army.


The core consists of Pathfinders, the obvious choice for the theme with 2 units of Harlequins as well, having VoT, ensuring that the fire of the opponents army is either uselessly aimed at the clowns, who they cannot see, or is diverted to the Pathfinders, whom hopefully have been thrown in cover, with a significant bonus to their cover saves.
The Death Jester was a... debated choice, as I initially didn't see much use for it, outside of popping tanks.  However, I decided it would be best for the Harlequins to hang back for the first few turns, so the Jester can open up some metal bawxes while they wait to assault.  
The rest of the anti tank based around the warwalkers, who get buffed up by the Farseer, having a massive output in shots...

Great themed list, but I wouldn't depend on this at a tournament! I never have had much luck with foot slogging lists. Especially with no Avatar.

The Avatar's purpose, to me that is, is mainly in Guardian spam lists... for me, the need to be fearless is reduced by the pathfinders, whom are very resilient if they manage to succesfully make it into cover.
Essentially, the army is orientated around hiding initially, forcing the enemy to come to you, popping their transports, then finally clearing up the enemy with a charge from the Harlequins, hopefully managing to kill a few units before dying horribly.

Personally, I think it's as good as you can get with FootDar, as the main problem with the Avatar is the entire list is built around him.
If he gets knocked off early game, your list is going to fold quickly.

Anyway, Eldar at tournaments? It's been a long time since those days... and footdar is easily the worst build for Eldar, so yeah.
Competitive? No.
Fun? Hell yes.

I would take would Eldrad to put more War Walkers in myself. And I would see it more likly that they have a Wraithlord than Eldrad being with them.

idget said...

With a bit of converting to the model, he becomes just another Exodite, Wraithlords on the other hand to me require a lot of work, namely, making them into some form of treeman.
Eldrad's also verg cost effective, with his psychic power slam being invaluable in both protecting your own units and maximising their offensive potential.

I always thought the Death Jester could't take a Harlequin Kiss as he has already exchanged his weapons with the Shreiker Cannon?

idget said...

Correct, but the kisses are for the Harlequins, not the Death Jester...
It's just the way BattleScribe likes to organise things, but hey it's free, which is more than I can say for Army Builder. (Which I can't even use since I bought a Mac)

IDICBeer said...

Oh OK, so that means you are only paying for nine kisses. That gives you an extra eight points to play with, plus the two left over (1498). Ten points would buy you a second Fusion pistol in one unit if you wanted
