anyone have any alt art of Warhammer 40k?
Specifically Eldar/Tyranids.

My girlfriend used to play Magic: The Gathering.

She also used to work in a game store.

I was under the impression that "alt art" as a term means fan art that is radically different from the "canon art style" and is somewhat "pseudo-realistic".

One of the most under-rated units in the Codex, I think. One of my friends runs Eldar, she takes a couple of small squads of 6 and they cause no end of problems if I'm playing Dark Eldar.

Small enough to tuck themselves out of Line of Sight, so can't reliably be killed from shooting. Hit and Run means if you don't wipe them on the charge, they're just going to hop out of combat and leave you sitting exposed to get shot up. Enough strength to threaten anything other than a Ravager or Talos, ignores FNP...horrid things.

>> No.15514090

>> No.15514094

it varies by fluff.

Path of the Warrior has an Exarch find space marines challenging, regular aspects are intimidated.

Fantasy Flight says harlequins are equivalent at best to a chaos marine.

>> No.15514099


raiders blow up, warriors die. Just make sure they kill something before their inevitable deaths

>> No.15514112

Really, it depends on how long it takes you to figure out how the army works. The learning curve is steep as they're so unforgiving - leave a unit exposed and it is very probably going to get destroyed - but if you can crack the playstyle then you start racking up the wins very quickly.

Stop and think before every move, make sure that as few enemy units as possible will have LoS to your units. Hug cover constantly, make sure to remain aggressive and control the flow of the game. Dark Eldar have the speed and hitting power to choose how, where, and when combats will be fought, so don't fight fair. Gang up on enemy units to wipe them out while minimizing your own losses, don't get suckered into fighting units one-on-one.

>> No.15514115


Not really, while eldar naturally have higher reaction time sets than normal humans they are greatly outclassed by Astartes, not to mention that said Astartes has numerous augmentations and superior armor, if the average Marine was the the equivlent to the average aspect warrior the Astartes would have long become extinct considering the time it takes to create one.

Astartes have quality, Aspect Warriors have quantity, that's how it is in the fluff.

Eldar have many things.

"Quantity" is not one of them.

Tyranids have quantity. Orks have quantity. The Imperial Guard has quantity. Eldar do not.

>> No.15514140

>> No.15514142


So it's just a matter of tactics I should be using normally, just more so?
>inb4 lol tactics in Warhammer

>> No.15514178


>"Quantity" is not one of them

Compared to Space Marines, yes.

Not sure where they stand with Necrons though

>> No.15514179

>> No.15514185

In terms of training and skill, a Space Marine and an Aspect Warrior will be about equal. Physically, the Marine will be stronger and tougher, the Eldar better at precise attacks and more agile. The Space Marine has heavier, tougher armour, but the Aspect is faster and more maneuverable. It's difficult to compare weapons because Aspect gear is so specialised; a Reaper Launcher is obviously far superior to a Bolter, but an Avenger Catapult is probably about equal.

If the two were simply standing face to face shooting at each other, then the Space Marine would win, obviously. That doesn't mean the Space Marine is better than the Aspect, just that it's in a situation that favours it. The Eldar would be looking to capitalise on its superior speed and precision to strike a killing or crippling blow quickly at one of the weak spots (joints, helmet seal, etc) in the Astartes' Power Armour before the Marine can land a solid hit in return.

Essentially, the Eldar won't have trouble landing hits, but has to get past the armour. The Marine won't have trouble inflicting harm, but has to actually land a hit. So about equal.

Didn't that one novel by Dan Abnett describe a single Space Marine of the Iron Snakes landing on a planet and single handedly fucking over an entire Dark Eldar raider force with only some random chick and a dog?

>> No.15514209

>So it's just a matter of tactics I should be using normally

Sort of. Some armies don't need to worry so much about unit placement or avoiding harm - horde armies like Orks or Tyranids, for example, are better off just trying to rough out enemy firepower and plough through it as quickly as possible, than waste time trying to avoid it entirely like Eldar or Dark Eldar need to do.

>Any units I should always take or avoid?

The Dark Eldar codex doesn't actually have any really terrible units. Mandrakes and the Court of the Archon are rather unimpressive, but aren't so abysmal you shouldn't ever use them. So long as you have a good idea of what each unit is going to do and kit it out approrpiately you can pretty much take what you like.
