1500p Craftworlds list with Harlequins
« on: October 29, 2018, 04:06:18 PM »
Gonna be playing against Thousand Sons next, and this time I'll include some Harlequins.
I'm mainly wondering if I should scrap the Spiritseer in the battalion detachment and get a second Farseer instead (on foot). To free up the points for it, I'll have to sacrifice a Reaper, and about 10 additional points worth of equipment from elsewhere (easily doable, no biggie).
General input is always appreciated, too!

Here's the list:

Battalion Detachment:
(Ulthwe for the Craftworlders, Frozen Stars for the clowns)

- Spiritseer w Conceal/Reveal (used to make the Reapers below harder to hit)
- 5 Avengers w Exarch
- 20 Guardians w 2 shurican platforms (will be using the webway)

- Troupe Master w The Storied Sword and Fusion pistol (Warlord w the trait to get more CPs)
- Solitaire w Cegorach's rose (spending one CP to enable an additional relic, he's going character hunting)
- 5 Players w Kisses, 2 Fusion pistols
- Starweaver transport (Troupe Master and Players riding)

Spearhead detachment:
(Alaitoc)

- Farseer Skyrunner w Guide and Doom, Singing spear
- 9 Reapers w Exarch
- Fire prism w Spirit stones
- Fire prism w Spirit stones

-----
1499p


So what do you think?
With 2 Farseers, the Skyrunner will be running with Doom and Executioner and the footslogger Guide and Fortune.

Your detachments need to be made up of the same army of you'd like to still use your special rules. Sadly your battalion is broken.

Add in that if you are playing using Matched Play rules and following the FAQ, then Aeldari is not a keyword that can be used to create detachments.  So Craftworld and Harlequins would have to be in their own separate detachment.
If there is anything that recent politics has taught us, it is that quotes taken out of context can mean what ever you want them to.
Well I always liked the globals...
I knew I had fans!!!

A simple way to accomplish this would be to put all your Craftworlds unit into a single Battalion detachment. You may need to split the Guardians into two units, or pay for another troop unit to do this. Then, make the Harlequins into a Patrol detachment of their own.

Well, don't I feel like a moron...
Thanks for the heads-up! I fixed it, following Blazinghand's suggestions.
Cost me some points to legalize the list, by adding a unit of Rangers. The whole point of the 20 man guardian squad is to drop em in (cheaply), so didn't want to split them up.
Going with a Warlock instead of a Spiritseer to save additional points.
