Default Potentially Cheap and amazing combo Skyweavers + Farseers

Farseer on Jetbike
Farseer on Jetbike

Faolchu's Wing Formation:
5 Skyweavers
5 Skyweavers
1 Voidweaver + Prismatic cannon

Formation effect: Can reroll jink save

Take prescience as a primaris: Reroll you're snapshots and you're to hit in combat.

Anyone think this is a good idea?
Is this possible ? (Farseer joining into a formation)

What is the exact wording on the Formation? In this case, it says 'If you choose to jink with units in this formation...' So technically, yes, this would work, even with the Farseers, because they join the unit.

However (and I was planning on doing this with Autarchs in my Skyweaver units), you will NOT be able to use the Mirage Launchers, because nothing from the Eldar Codex has them, and the rules specifically say every model in the unit must have them to use them.

Ah interesting, so you were planning on putting autarchs with your units of skyweavers?

For academic reasons can you tell me how you intend on arming your units and your autarchs and how you plan on using them?

I'm still trying to decide, honestly. The autarchs in my army will serve multiple purposes:

1. I'm running multiple CADs, so I need a few HQs. Since I need to use them anyway, why not make them beatsticks in my CC squad?

2. I'm running two Crimson Hunters, so the Autarchs give me reserve control.

I haven't decided the exact kit, but most likely it will be Laser Lance, Fusion Gun, Banshee Mask. This gives them an impressive CC profile, and can also hurt vehicles... though the rest of the squad can't. The autarch doesn't exactly have a good kit to match up with the Skyweavers.

It's not Farseers I'd ideally want to run Skyweavers with, but Warlocks. Ah, Conceal for 2+ cover jink...

*drifts off dreamily*

Well, that's not happening.

Ya know, I never really considered running Warlocks with them. Not a bad idea.

Why wouldn't you do it?

Warlocks are not IC's and can only join units listed under the Warlock Council unit entry, of which Skyweavers, nor any other Harlequin unit are listed for that matter, and Conceal only affects the Caster, granting the rule which then applies to his squad, rather than selecting a squad.

That would explain it.

I use a lot of commas recently.
