177- x5 dark reapers w/exarch-tempest launcher, carck shot
177- x10 dire avenger w/exarch- pw,shimmershield, defend, bladestorm
178- x15 guardians w/scatter llaser, warlock w/ conceal, singing spear


the altanasar were saved from the eye of terror. i like the story stuff they put about this in the new codex so i'm makin a little maugan army. i hope for the farseer to hang back with maugan and the reapers he can really help them tear things upthe guardians are a meatshield and the dire avengers can counter assault anything that gets too close.hopefully. open to any suggestions as long as maugen and his boys stick around.:mrgreen: i like the models

195- maugen-ra Cool
150- farseer w/ doom, fortune, guide, spirit stones Too many toys, trim the fat for other stuff.....

177- x5 dark reapers w/exarch-tempest launcher, carck shot No problem with two units as long as you can keep them from getting too mauch return fire, or becoming Assault Magnets - fast enemy will run them down.
177- x10 dire avenger w/exarch- pw,shimmershield, defend, bladestorm Nice to add protection to your army; but an anti-tank guardian squad might serve you better.
178- x15 guardians w/scatter llaser, warlock w/ conceal, singing spear EML or BL would be better for anti-tank, etc.

Your army overall has some good ideas, loads of Anti-power-armour shooting and some "Holding/Staying" power; but you lack in any true assault (although you may not need it), no armour control, and your HQ's seam to be overly tasked to the point that a smart opponent will figure out ways to limit their use and shut you down. (Range-Snipe, etc.)

177- reapers x5 w/ exarch: tempest, fast shot
143- guardian x10 w/eml and warlock w/conceal, singing spear

I like him, but you have to play a few games to see how he fairs in your list.

For anti-tank, you should really consider giving your Dark Reaper Exarchs a Missile launcher with fast shot. That adds 4 anti-tank shots to your army.

Also, keep the farseer with doom, guide and spirit stones. Put him next to your Reapers or with your dire avengers.

If you can work out the points, the DA make an excelent anti-troop squad if they are in the wave serpent. You can Star Engine the Serpent across the board to a nice location, then hop out in turn 2 unleashing 32 shots. If you bring the farseer with them, they can get re-roles to hit and to wound. Thats A LOT of armour saves. :biggrin: Just give your DA Exarch Bladestorm and 2 Shuriken Catipults if you use them in the Wave Serpent. Otherwise he is good the way he is. You might want to drop bladestorm because you will probly be more effective moving then using fleet of foot to get into charge range. Never done this myself because ive never used DA with out the serpent.

Why bring 3 infantry squads!? The Eldar are HORRIBLE with infantry like the guardians. The ONLY way those guardian would be useful is if you get them in close and you can only effectively do this with a wave serpent. I would Drop a guardian squad for either a nice squad of Striking Scorpions (Deep Strike them) or that wave serpent i was talking about for the DA.

Although, I agreed with comments about your first list, I don't think the farseer should be dropped. He was a pretty important support unit. And if you can fit a serpent for the da, do it. So basically, I'm asking you to do the impossible:), but in all seriousness I'm sure you will figure out a way to make the list work.

The points on the Dark Reaper sqauds are wrong.

5x 35 for 5 Reapers would make 175 Points.

I doubt that you could fit in an Tempest ML and Fast Shot for 2 Points.
