But, by the time they get to you (turn 2-3) you'll probably have taken some casualties from shooting - so charge with the remnants of a unit or a chaff unit like cultists. Than hit them with a decent cc squad once they've fired overwatch- A helbrute, maulerfiend or dread charging them will just remove them from the game
Or just shoot them some more

How's that boring, exactly? It's 15% off the cost of the individual components, and it's a complete windrider host core element for the Craftworld detachment. It's also a playable army out of the gate as a CAD, which makes it an excellent starter box for a new Eldar army.

One model short, actually. well, for the Windrider Host, at least. That requires at lest one more Skyrunner.

But yes, it's a CAD in a box, which is very nice. About... 500 points if you did a lot of upgrades.

its a yawnfest in a box and as pointed out its lacking a warlock conclave unit so its not the complete detachment, infact thats a huge bollock dropped too, they could have included the extra warlock and made it match the codex entry.

anyway its boring because its a box of boring ass jetbikes, i can see the unboxing video now" very old vyper sprue? check, farseer jet bike sprue? check and a crap ton of boring ass jet bikes that have absolutely zero elements to make them anymore interesting than the last jet bike? check! and we are done"

GW just wants to enable Jetbikespam players to hook that IV up straight into their veins until we all choke to death on torrents of untouchably fast scatter lasters.

Seriously? The new jetbike models are so much better, just as models, than the last sculpts. But even if none of that does anything for you, it's a great bundle with a discount attached that's really a strong box as a battleforce-- i.e., something that starts your Eldar army or fleshes out your existing one with a strong Core element.

Okay maybe boring is the wrong word, dull would be better, yes its better than the last guardian jet bike, but its still poor, apart from an extra weapon the model has nothing, not even an alternate head ,or an alternate anything for that matter, zero customisability. So the battleforce is just a box of dull

I've requested some pictures of Kittens dressed up as battle cat to come in the boxes to cheer you up........

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
