6 Swooping Hawks
1 Exarch
Sunrifle
Intercept "Maybe"
Skyleap

189-194 points

Farseer
guide
spirit stones
doom
singing spear
runes of witnessing

133 points
8 path finders

192 points

what do you think

514 points
493 if 5 hawks

i want the hawks to be in there as they can take out tanks and troops with ease

the farseer uses his powers so the pathfinders are even more awesome.

i might change the hq and troops but i want to keep the hawks .. ? any suggestions

A couple of thoughts.

You only have one troops choice. That is probably ok at this points level but sooner or later you are going to want a second so that you fill the force organisation chart properly.

You have gone for things that are all pretty expensive individually, so your overall model count is low. That might make things difficult for you, or it might be fine. Something to watch out for in your games.

I don't think you need to cast guide on pathfinders. They really don't miss much anyway. You could save a lot of points from your farseer if you took guide and spirit stones off him.

If that leaves you with a few points spare I'd suggest spending them on a small unit of troops. Something like 5 dire avengers or 3 jetbikes with a shuriken cannon. Those would be quite good for fighting against the more numerous opponents you are likely to face. You might have to lose a swooping hawk or a couple of pathfinders to do this, but I think it would be worth it.

1 hq

On 500 Points you'll probalby do fine with this list :

Farseer w/ Doom - 80 Points

2x 5 Pathfinders - 240 Points

Wraithlord w/ Scatter Lasers, EML - 135 Points

1x D-Cannon - 50 Points

Pathfinders are really tough on 500 Points due ther good saves.

The Wraithlord serves as close combat blocker, very few enemy should be able to kill him at 500 Points.

Use the hawks, they are cooler anyway ;)

Wraithlord in 500pts may be effective but it is just lame. Are they really going to send out a thousand-year-old wraith spirit on a combat patrol? I mean come on. Hawks are more delicate and harder to keep alive, but that just adds to the fun right? Instead of two pathfinders squad, I would use a single larger squad and add a squad of guardians. They are inexpensive and good looking models, plus they give your army some desperately needed numbers, protect your farseer, and are more logical/fluffly.

Farseer (Not to much wargear, your better off with more models)

8x Pathfinders

10+ guardians, maybe a platform

6 Hawks with Exarch

Wargear and weapons to suit your taste.

dont have that many guardians only 12 and not a platform i think i did have one

i think ill stick with my list and lots of wargear on farseer unless he wants me to take 2 groups of troops

then ill minimize wargear and powers and maybe just have more rangers

To bad, Pathfinders cant get Warlocks w/ Conceal.

Deploy them in a ruin with 4+ cover saves, then you have a 2+ cover save ^^.

Few things :

- field Pathfinders 2x5 as you need 2x Troop Choice
- drop the intercept, you wont finf that many vehicles on 500 Pts.
- drop the Runes, as you dont need them on 500 Pts. and its actually not polite to use more points.
