Title: 1st eldar list: Harlie 1000
Post by: Mister_X on May 19, 2003, 10:01:48 PM
Be gentle, I'm new at this.

HQ - Shadowseer: pistol & shrieker ammo, P-blades, Kiss, D-field (126)

E1 - 2 Jesters w/ bright lances (114)

T1 - 5 troupers: plas, fusion, power weapon & kiss
       Leader:  shrieker ammo, p-blades, kiss  (229)

T2 - Ditto  (229)

T3 - 5 mimes: power weapon, kiss (136)

FA - 3 bikes: 3 shuripistols, 2 power weapons (165)
       

How's this for a start?

Also, I'm going to be using DE plastic for most of my guys.  Are there any appropriate heads avalable as bits?  I've been chopping down the pointy DE noggins but I don't think they look too Harlequin-y.  Maybe as a dread or rictus mask.

Yeah, the Harlies recruit from Cormoragh, but I don't think they let the newbies keep their old hats.

I think the DE bodies work pretty well, but their pointy melons are just a li'l too Bride of Frankenstein for me.  I'm probably going to pick up some WFB elf sprues and see what I can do with that.  

BTW, I decided I wanted a venom in the list, so here's X's Motlies v2.0:

HQ: Seer w/ pistol, kiss, P-blades, D-field

Elites: 2 Death Jesters w/ bright lances

Troops:

5 troupers: power weapon & kiss; 1 leader (has anyone thought of a better name?) w/ pistol, ccw, & powerblades

5 troupers: power weapon & kiss; 1 leader w/ pistol, ccw, & powerblades

6 mimes w/ power weapon & kiss

FA:  3 bikes w/ 3 shuripistols, 1 PW, fusion gun

HS: venom w/ holofield & fusion gun

Total: 998 (though I'm far too sleepy to trust my math)
Models: 24 + 1 vehicle


I'd like to hear what the experts think.

  Looks fine. Rides the Venom with a squad correct?

 Solid coice.

I'd say drop the leader and get another trouper instead. You need more bodies.

Take the extra trouper from the other squad, drop the leader here as well, and make this squad larger. That way you have a squad of 6 for the venom and another, larger, footslogging it.

6 mimes w/ power weapon & kiss
 Good. Nothing to comment on here

FA:  3 bikes w/ 3 shuripistols, 1 PW, fusion gun
  Ahhh. Yes! Nice. This breaks up an enemy charge nicely. Good luck with them.

Quote
HS: venom w/ holofield & fusion gun
  The Venom that you need. Perfect.

For 1000 points you have enough bodies if you drop the leaders and get troupers for the points, and the list looks good. You can take on Marines with it easily enough. Good luck.

Let us know how it goes.

These squads are six men, five troupers and a leader.  Sorry for the confusing wording & thanks for the feedback.
