Vypers den: Vyper tactics!

Vypers are often overlooked and even maligned by many Eldar players. Heck, I used to dismiss them myself-mainly because they didn't quite fit the playstyle of my army.

Another tournament, another day:

So I recently played in a tournament at a local Games Workshop store (the LA Battle Bunker) and got some good practice in with my Jetbike Eldar.

Another twist was that every game had spearhead deployment and a random mission objective. You had to set up objectives as per the 2 objective missions in the rulebook and then on turn 3, you would roll to see what mission you were playing for so it added a crazy tactical edge to the tournament and games that I enjoyed. Further adding to the craziness was the bonus points.

Battle Report : A little (not so) friendly competition...

So I played a few games against my good friend Nick from the other day and decided to post a Battle Report from one of our games that I think went well and really showcased some strengths and weaknesses of both our armies (Jetbike Eldar vs Dark Eldar).
