Mechanized Aeldari: Aspect Assault (2000)
« on: August 12, 2017, 06:27:15 PM »
 At this point I have only played 4 games in 8th, i don't get out as often as I would like, and I have tabled my opponent each time. I blame that entirely on d-scythes and heavy d-scythes of my beloved wraith. Before I get thrown out of my local game store, I think I want to bring something a little less absurd to the table. I am still on a mechanized kick, so I was thinking I would try a (nearly) pure Aspect Warriors list. Here is my take:

I would be one of the first to tell you DAs are overpriced, but paired with Asurmen's buff they are a little bit more worthwhile and I am making this an aspect list after all. With only 5 drops, this list has a very good chance of going first as well.

Basic strategy is to run the DAs down my opponents throat while the Reapers and CHs provide supporting fire. I might drop off the warlock with the reapers if I think they will take heavy return-fire, he can't actually fit in their serpent though. Otherwise he will ride with the DAs and, combined with Asurmen's buff, will make the whole unit very hard to kill. I might also try and keep the CHs in range of Asurmen sense they too are aspects.

Overall I hope this list is competitive without being as overwhelming in a friendly match, as some of my others have been.
