Default TBA eldar vs custodes

Now that the rules for custodes is known, have anyone tried to setup and refight that infamous event in Throneworld where the eldar group tries to reach the Emperor and mowing through custodes like butter, before they were overcome? I well remember the Imperial outrage over custodes dying so easilly.

I am in particular interested in knowing if the eldar in question remotely have a chance to push it as described in the book, before they were overcome through attrtition

That was what? A Shadowseer, Death Jester, and a troupe of less than ten harlequins all with various weapons.

My bet is that on the tabletop that kind of squad would not be able to stand up against more than a single squad of custodians honestly. The majority of the job to kill them would need to be done at range, because otherwise the harlies would struggle to wound the custodians.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?
