>ignoring statements about Dark Dldar aside

This hobby is expensive. If you are willing to play whats in the starter box and split the cost with your friend (or not, and say your still in it for the long run, have him buy the full box, and then snag all the faction models he has and build off that as a core) then you save a LOT of money. The starter box has practically always been GW's only good deal, so if you like the box models, go for it.

As soon as you step away from the starter box, expect a big jump in effort and price. Thats just the way GW is.

If you would prefer a army not in the box (IG, Tau, Orks) take a look at their codex' and opinions online about them. For example tau are really strong right now, and unanimously orks are in a terrible place this edition, so if playing and winning is a big concern to you, make sure to do your research.

Otherwise I highly suggest you play the one you like the models of the most. That's what i've always done.

>the eldar's point

The only eldar contribution was afterward:

>Slau Dha stepped forward to face Alpharius. The Astartes followed him with their weapons, but he ignored the threat.

>‘Well?’ he asked, in halting, thickly accented Low Gothic. ‘What is your response, mon-keigh? Do you have the strength to make this choice, or are you just as weak and self-serving as the rest of your vermin species?’

>Alpharius gazed at the autarch levelly. ‘I stand for the Emperor,’ he replied. ‘In all things, I am loyal to Him, and I cannot break that bond. He has many great ambitions, and the noblest of intentions, but I know that above all else, He is determined to stand firm against the rise of Chaos. He has always known the truth of it. The overthrow of the Primordial Annihilator is His greatest wish. So what I do, autarch, from this moment on, I will do for the Emperor.’

>Slau Dha nodded. He turned and walked away.

I'm a Dark Eldar fan but I've been meaning to get tino Eldar for some time.

I might finally indulge and get some Guardians and an Autarch or something. If I start playing will people still hate me if I just take fluffy lists? I'm not interested in taking the most OP shit, I just want to use the units I think look cool. Is the codex so broken that that's not even possible?

probably the most balanced and best (in terms of overall fun units, and usable builds) codex in the game right now.

Maybe of all time.

Ok then, what if I give her only the armor and a shrunken backpack? It would be enough warp-spiderish imho.

Having played DE for the last couple of years I thought I'd give the new eldar dex a go. Here's the 1st list I've written that I'm happy with, was looking for any opinions or critiques on it (local meta is a mix of marines, guard, tgrey knights and chaos, few guys are starting Tau)


-Farseer (singing spear, spirit stone of anath'lan) 120
-Spiritseer 70
-2 Warlocks (1 singing spear, 1 witch blade) 75


-10 Dire Avengers in a Wave Serpent (scatter laser, holofields) 265
-10 Guardian Defenders (bright lance) in a Wave Serpent (scatter laser, holofields) 245
-10 Guardian Defenders (Starcannon) in a Wave Serpent (scatter laser, holofields) 245
-5 Rangers 60
-3 Jetbikes (shuriken cannon) 61
-3 Jetbikes (shuriken cannon) 61


-10 Warp Spiders (Exarch with spinneret rifle, fast shot and marksman's eye) 235


-Fire Prism (holofields) 140
-Fire Prism (holofields) 140
-3 War Walkers (2 scatter lasers each) 210

Aegis Line (comms relay)

Spiritseer deploys with the dire avengers (taking conceal and another power from runes of battle)
Farseer and a conceal warlock sit with the brightlance guardians behind the aegis line.
