Hello everyone,
There's a BFG introduction game this month at a local game store and since I haven't played in months I thought it'd be the perfect opportunity to get back into the game. I bought an Eldar fleet a while ago and wanted to try it out. There is a 500 point limit to what I can bring. Here's what I came up with.

4x Hellebore class
2x Hemlock class
3x Nightshade class

Anything I could do to improve this? I have the following models (this includes the ones listed above)

Void Stalker
2x Eclipse class
6x Hellebore class
4x Aconite class
3x Nightshade class
3x Hemlock class

If I can't get them assembled and painted in time I'll just use either my Imperial or Chaos fleets, but I would like the chance to give the Eldar a try.

Cheers.

sorry for the delay :grin:

500pts is pretty small.. never battled eldar with such a tiny fleet. but when my experience does not fail me.. the lower the points the more quality shines. and it proves very true every time. so actually it's something your eldar should excel in. list is fine. you will own the game.
watch your hellbores, though..

Thanks, Graf Spee. It'll probably be a multi-player game, so I'll keep my fleet away from the heavy fighting and use my manuverability to pick-out isolated enemy ships and them fall back before then can retaliate.

ah i see. in a multiplayer game with eldar as a small flank harassasing fleet you should feel very much at home with your list. you should work to attack first before the other fleetparts from rear and side in order to knock down shields, so the blast markers you create will not obstruct the lines of fire from the bigger vessels attacking head on with mass weapons batteries and torps on their weak prows (in case you battle chaos).
or just go hunting escorts. none can do it better than eldar.

in any case, happy hunting.

cheers
