Eldar Warithlords - 6th Edition

Just been checking our how my Wraithlords seem to have changed in 6th....


wraithlords are now a characters !!


So now wraithlords gain :
Precision shots on a 6 to hit they can choose Target wound allocation within Target unit.

Precision strikes (closecombat)- on a 6 to hit choose Target wound allocation.
Challenges - can now issue and accept challenges !!!



wraithlords also gain the following special rules :
Hammer of wrath - 1 additional auto hit I10 S10 AP- attack if charging.
Fear - causes LD tests on attackers
Smash - all attacks are AP2 and can choose to half attacks with re-rollable armour penetration
And wraithlords Keep :
Relentless
Move through cover
Wraithsight


All the +'s and no neg's so far i thnk

What are your thoughts ?

They are slow, have 2 attacks, IIRC can be wounded on a 6 by all, hence becoming weaker to PWeapons, and someone can just elect to save their character from a challenge by having them decline (when realistically they are unlikely to kill the Wraithlord anyway) and can then ping off wounds onto other models from Look Out Sir, all the while it gets chipped away at, even more easily due to the prevalence of some of the higher strength weapons.

Its Smash special rule is useless - it only has 2 attacks, and is already S10.

Its a poor guys monstrous creature. A Dual Avatar list, however, might do reasonably well.

Dual Avatar? Nah, QUAD-Avatar at 2000 points backed up by 6 Wraithlords.

Yeah smash is pointless apart from confiring all hits to he AP2.

as for challenges... he couldn't before so if they run away its not the eldar players loss.

And having T8 means you need at lest S5 before you can do anything to it.

Its Smash special rule is useless - it only has 2 attacks, and is already S10. Smash is what makes the MC's close combat attacks AP2, not really useless

Its a poor guys monstrous creature. A Dual Avatar list, however, might do reasonably well. The Avatar is 0-1, meaning you can only bring one no matter the size of your list.
Precision shots/strikes are very nice, and Fear can be very nice too. An Eldar list that just spammed MCs would be very scary lol

It's in the army list entry on pg 61 under "Individual".

Challenges and precision strikes might be interesting.

Grasping at straws, but does that stop them from being taken as allies in a dual FOC Alliance?

Actualy just having the smash rule means that cc attacks are ap2 if using it you can reroll amour pen rolls.
