At this point is is important to mention that as of the release of IA:11, The Warp Hunter uses the large blast template, not the small one.

Is this really true? I don't have the book (won't have it for quite a while), so i would highly appreciate if someone could simply post a 'yes' or 'no' so that there's no copyright-problem.

I thought the WH was awesome already, a large blast would be kinda insane, but certainly appreciated :D

Not only is it large blast, but it glances on a 2-4, penetrating on 5+, according to IA Apoc 2nd Ed.  Is it different in IA 11?

If not, under which circumstances would the Prism be better?

Fire Prism is designed for range. Really depends on what you're fighting against - sheer destructive power would be the Warp Hunter outright, but against CC armies with little mobility, a Fire Prism might be the ticket if cover saves aren't easily found by the enemy.

2 warp hunters and 1 fire prism for good measure :P haha what i struggling to understand is if you wanna play appoc do you purchase the appoc rule book or the A11? because from what i read certain stats contradict each other, or do you need both?  im deff getting the WH and i may use NS in my FS slot rather then Shining spears...

IA 11 is the most recent version of the rules and so if there's a disagreement with the Apoc book and IA 11 you go with IA 11.

That would depend on whether everything you want rules for is located within IA 11 or not. This Imperial Armour volume also does not contain the Apoc appendices at the back so for some of the vehicles you'll either need a copy of a IA 10 or such or a copy of the more recent Apoc II book to use to replace them.

I agree with the different strokes argument. I personnally run both a warp hunter and a night spinner in my Eldar army with my final HS slot going to either a squadren of war walkers, a wraithlord or a 2nd night spinner.

I've never been a fan of the fire prism purely because they need to be fielded in pairs to be most effective and there are just too many good things I'd want to take.

The best thing about a night spinner is it has range. Lots of range and It can be devestating against any army. The warp hunter just puts the fear of god into an opponent which is always nice.

Go for what you like not what works best. You'll always have more fun that way!

I I went for what I like then I would go for older rules...  ;D

Nightspinner not having the monofilamentweb rule BUT the 7" template and transport capacity.........


Anway, to me it all depends on just what fits into my specific composition and oponents. The Spinner is currently seeing use, the Prism not.
sure you have an opinion,
but my swordplay is better than yourīs


Take my advice, I never use it.
