Wraithguard bonanza: taking 40 wraithguard to a tournament!?

This past weekend I went to a 2500 point tournament with a list that featured 40 Wraithguard (because I didn't have 50 or 60 to play with). This post will cover the army I brought, why Wraithguard, and the battle reports of my games.

Happy Thanksgiving!

While I've been incredibly busy with law school and neglecting the blog a bit, (finals are coming up just around the corner), I want to take a moment to say happy thanksgiving to everyone! Life has its ups and downs, its busy seasons and times when you just have too much time on your hands but we should all have things to be thankful for...If you are reading this blog, chances are your life is *A LOT* better than the majority of the world's population so be thankful for everything you have, I know I am! I hope to have a lot of cool content coming up in the near future in battle reports and more tactical write-ups, so hang in there and more will be on its way. Thanks for your patience and I am thankful for all of my readers =).

A "change" of pace...CSM: Thousand Sons revisited

While Eldar are my main army and I really enjoy playing them, Thousand Sons have always been a fun army for me and I've had quite a few wins under my belt with them from the 3.5 dex. Unsurprisingly, my interest in them dropped off when the previous codex ruined CSM but with 6th edition out and a new codex on the horizon, what better time to revisit Thousand Sons than now?

New FAQs and Eldar:

The new FAQs for both the main rulebook and the Eldar came out recently. This post will cover those changes in regards to how they relate to Eldar and what this means for the Eldar looking forward.

Random post: Good deals and an Eldar showcase

Sometimes it's just nice to post what's on your mind, or to share some things you found that are pretty cool and this is one of those posts. I found a blog that has some REALLY nicely painted Eldar models that I wanted to share with you guys along with a really sweet deal I got at a local auction!

Think Tank: The present state of the Eldar codex...

I am starting a new editorial of sorts where I speak my mind candidly about Eldar, the state of the game and all things 40k. This post will talk about Eldar and their way of war according to the fluff and how their codex doesn't match up in its current state.

Eldar Unit Overview/Analysis (Elites)

Eldar Unit overview/analysis (HQ)

Now that 6th edition and the FAQs are out, I thought it would be a good time to go over EVERY unit in the codex and talk about how they've changed alongside how they can be used in 6th. This will be a series so I will break it up based on force org slots starting with HQ units. This post will cover our HQ units and special characters.

Small 750 point tournament Battle Report:

I played in a 750 point tournament yesterday. This was my first set of games in 6th so I thought I'd write up a mini battle report for everyone and share some of my thoughts on Eldar in 6th.

Eldar Psychic Power tactics:

Integral to Eldar fluff and tactics are psychic powers. In 6th, Eldar have a lot more variety as far as available powers go in addition to a lot more potency/survivability in psychic offense/defense (compared to other psykers).  This is a rundown of how psychic powers will work for Eldar in 6th:

Yriel's official 6th edition Eldar guide!

6th edition is a very different game now and Eldar will play in a very different way as far as I can tell. The changes to how psychic powers, movement, shooting and assault work now will see us changing our armies to play to the rules or it will see us failing horribly as we cling to outmoded ways of waging war.

With all of that said, I am starting to write what will be my 6th edition Eldar tactical guide. This will of course be updated as I get feedback, more experience and as the new Eldar codex comes out (hopefully next year). It will be divided up into several parts covering every unit entry in the codex as well as some basic and advanced Eldar tactics in light of 6th edition. Please feel free to ask any questions you guys might have both specifically and generally as well as anything in particular you guys would like tactics/advice on. I'll answer as best I can and include them in my tactica.

A silly 1850 6th edition list...

Eldar are not what they used to be in 6th. They do have some interesting, if not silly, tricks up their sleeves and I made a list to try and showcase some of them. This involves using 9 Vibro

Transitioning from 5th to 6th

Now that I survived my first semester in law school and have a bit more time I wanted to talk about Eldar, 5th edition and potential 6th edition changes. Change is always difficult and uncertain, even for Tzeench but luckily we are Eldar and we have Farseers and stuff, right?

Taking Eldar to a GT... But what list?

As the title says,  I am taking my Eldar to a 1500 point 40k GT in San Diego. It's run by Dave Faye and has some of the best players in CA going so it should be a great challenge. For me, the biggest challenge might be on what army list to bring...

Sunday, May 6, 2012


So we like 40k. We have hopes and dreams for what 6th edition will be like. Based on some of the rumors, if 40k 6th is anything like fantasy 8th, we are in for a lot of shattered hopes and dreams (I think)...

I'm still alive!

I just want to let everyone who frequent's this blog know that I am still alive and kicking, still very much involved with Eldar and 40k in general. Right now I am studying for law school finals but after that you should be able to expect some more content...

Someone on the internet...Is right?

I was desperately searching for Eldar rumors on Warseer today when I came across a post that was so well written and thought out regarding Games Workshop and such that I thought everyone who has a chance should see and read it.

My "top secret" Eldar list for this weekends RTT...

Lately I've been running a myriad of lists from Draigo Wing to max Skimmer spam Eldar, mainly for the simplicity of play and ease of winning. Now, I'm going to go back to some of my roots and bust out an Iyanden style army for an upcoming tournament and I'd like some feedback!

A "change" of pace...

While Eldar was one of my first and favorite armies of all time, there are a few others that I've played consistently and have revisited a few times. Recently, in the wake of crazy 6th edition rumors and CSM rumors, I've been converting and building up a sizable Thousand Sons army, this post is just to showcase some of the models/conversions I've been concocting, feedback and advice welcome!

6th Edition rules leak and Eldar...

So unless you've been living under a rock (or have a life maybe), you've probably missed out on hearing about those tasty 6th edition rules and codex updates being leaked...I just wanted to go over a brief analysis and overview of the rules and talk about how they might affect Eldar.
