>In the aftermath of a battle on Cullrak, in which the Eldar of Mymeara successfully fight off a daemonic incursion, a huge raiding party from the Kabal of the Fiend Ascendant threatens a clutch of the Eldar’s spirit stones. It is greatly feared that the Kabal will retreat to Commorragh and debase the souls of Mymeara’s dead. With their numbers already considerably depleted from the previous battle, the Eldar of Mymeara have little choice but to command their Spiritseers to unleash the ghost warriors in their defence. The wraith-constructs launch one of the most vengeful strikes in the craftworld’s history and numerous Kabalites and their Raiders are incinerated by searing Wraithknight plasma blasts.

Down here in NZ Infinity models are the same price as 40k metals. IE, a 10 point Ork Kommando and a typical Infinity trooper are $15.

>all their players seem to be butthurt and troll 40k threads

There's a very logical reason for that. For many of them, their mentality is somewhat similar to the MMO players who refuse to play WoW, but then go on to dump on WoW in every other MMO they play. There's nothing wrong with choosing to play another game; there IS something wrong with playing another game BECAUSE it is not 40K. And many Infinity, Malifaux, Flames of War etc players play those games because they hate 40K, and act as if playing these other games makes them somehow superiour.

Personally I couldn't care less what someone plays. They enjoy it, more power to them. But don't define your hobby by hatred.

Unless you count " Infinity [...] release all the .pdf rules for things for free" as trolling, in which case, Jesus Christ, chill the fuck out. 90% of 40k threads are complaining about how overpriced everything in 40k is and the bullshit cost of digital supplements (that contain about two pages of rules) and digital codexes that cost only slightly less than the hardback books.

Seconding this.

-A box of ten tac marines is £25 (£2.50 a model)
-A box of ten guard is £18 (£1.80 a model)
-A six-model Infinity starter box is £31 (£5.17 a model)

Conversely:
-An individual space marine HQ generally costs £11-£15, depending on detail.
-An imperial guard HQ costs £8-£11.
-An individual Infinity blister is £7.75 and a two-three model blister is £13.20.

Infinity models are all metal, so you can get plastic 40k troop units for a hell of a lot cheaper. You can get the entire Dark Vengeance box for the price of two Infinity starter boxes.

> 909.M41 Dishonourable Alliances
> A vast Imperial force comprised of the 52nd and 124th Valhallan regiments leads an invasion of the ice planet of Klaihn. To prevent a sacred Eldar Temple of Isha from falling into the hands of the Imperium, Biel-Tan and Lugganath each field their most potent ghost warriors and Aspect Warriors in a unified force. Partially because of the strange, ethereal blizzards and the stubbornness of the Valhallans, what was intended to be a fast strike results in a protracted and exhausting conflict. Eventually, the Eldar reach the temple and encircle it with ghost warriors, only for a Warp-blizzard to bring new terrors in the form of a wave of Daemons. An uneasy alliance is struck between the Eldar and the Imperial forces to purge the planet of frost-blighted Slaaneshi Warp-horrors. However, the Eldar have a greater plan, and lure the Daemons and Valhallans into a bloody conflict against each other that greatly reduces the numbers of each. Though the Valhallans are finally victorious against the Warp-spawn, the ghost warriors easily rout the exhausted Imperial survivors.
Muh dickish warfare. It's always funny to read about dealing with alliances this way.

ARMY AND BATTLEFIELD ROLE
Eldar Ghost Warriors is a Formation that consists of the following units chosen from Codex: Eldar:

• 1 Wraithknight
• 2 Wraithlords
• 3 units of Wraithguard or Wraithblades
OPTIONS AND FORMATION RESTRICTIONS:
The Formation cannot take any form of Dedicated Transport.

FORMATION SPECIAL RULES:
Desperate Measures: All units in this Formation and any friendly Eldar units within 6" of any model in this formation have the Hatred special rule.

Wraithbone Wall: If a friendly unit receives a cover save as a result of a unit from this Formation partially obscuring the firer’s view (see the Intervening Models rule in the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook), that unit receives a cover save of 4+.

Kind of cool. Pretty synergistic effect on nearby Eldar rather than just a buff.

As far as I'm aware, "Army" refers to all the detachments under a given player's control.

It'd be interesting to try the formation out. Yes, it's very slow, but anything that comes within 12" is in for a world of hurt. At 2000 points, you could use this as a large wall of tough, scoring units that'll be extremely hard to remove from any objectives, and devote the rest of your army to faster, more aggressive units. It's the sort of army that would have to be built around the Formation, rather than the Formation being thrown into the army for the hell of it, but it could be workable.

I know, without assault transport they're fucked, but Furious Charge would have at least killed 2 problems with one stone; namely that the +1 initiative would help them assault units in cover, +1S would actually help them wound their intended targets and it would actually be fluffy for a unit characterized by the ferocity of their charges.

Not necessarily. Sometimes they have bitter sweet events and even loses.

The Prince's last stand could have shown in a positive light if they mentioned how he and his ghost warriors annihilated Necron phalanx after another and bought time for the survivors and the souls in the World Spirit to be evacuated.

You wanted to show the vengeful desperation that marks the deployment of these warriors? Carnac was your best choice, GW. Oh well, a missed chance.

> His diresword knew only its desire to end enemies. His aspect armour was slick with the drizzle of barbarian blood. Gore dripped from the plume of his high-helm, while the fury of greenskin shells – crude but as unrelenting as a storm – turned to lead-splatter against the fluxing pulse of his energy shield. His craftworld kin were there: lithe, shadowy figures, whose blades and shuriken-fire was the bladed shaft of a spear thrust through the meat of the enemy ranks – a spear of which Kael Ra was the tip. The monstrous droves – living testaments to obstinate rage – split before the martial grace of the Prince Ecliptic’s advance. The orks bellowed their choler and contempt for the sleight craftworld host but could do nothing to stop the bloody, limb-strewn path the Alaitocii warriors were carving through their hordes. Kael Ra was a vision of serenity – cold, precise and deadly.
His diresword sang with the balletic demise of invader greenskins, while his body arced and extended about its movements, guiding it to greater devastation. Brute-bore weaponry spat its point-blank-range fury into the sizzling shell of the autarch’s shielding, while Kael Ra whipped his shuriken pistol about him like the grip of a whip, allowing the trailing flourishes of monomolecular death to scythe through the soon-to-be-dead.

Which was this? He had fought the greenskin plague on Ath-Ethon, on Lorachi and Talhennor, and many fringe worlds beyond. The pang of uncertainty shot through his heart, the kind of fear and uncertainty that the alien enemy had failed to put there. As his killing thrusts and elegant bladework took apart oncoming brutes, Kael Ra allowed himself a moment of consideration, a second or two away from the calculating contrivance of battle. Had he become lost on some darkened path? He had walked many but none seemed as potent and captivating as this. The figures about his pirouetting form – both foe and fellow eldar – appeared bleached in darkness. Their shapes were immediate and recognisable but their movements blotted into one another.
> His diresword skewered one beastbreed, before slipping it out of the carcass and flicking gore into the face of another. As the monster greenskin blinked the muck from its eyes, it found that its throat had been slashed open by the twirling sweep of the autarch’s shuriken pistol. A clawed arm flew off here, a tusk-twisted head there. Kael Ra ducked. He back flipped. He rolled, each movement taking him clear of a felling broadblade, crackling power claw or stream of lead. Crouching down in the blood-mulch and dismembered body parts, the Prince Ecliptic span on the toe-tip of his boot, his blade cutting through the gristle and bone of shins and ankles. Monsters fell about him, and like the harvester in the field Kael Ra reared to survey the fruits of his labour. It was then that he saw her.

In turn, the greenskin monstrosities seemed unaware of her. She drifted through their throngs of violence and alien hatred, her steps light and her eyes on the Prince Ecliptic. Unlike the spiky silhouette of the enemy or the dark assurance of the warriors at his back, the wandering eldar ghosted her way through the scene. She positively glowed and Kael Ra felt drawn to her strangeness.
> Fearing she was one of his number – a straggler cut off from the spearhead by a barricade of furious green flesh – Kael Ra turned the lethal point of the battle formation aside. With his pistol empty and holstered, the autarch surged into the enemy ranks. With footwork fast and the grace of economical blade work, Kael Ra slipped through the beasts. Using his slender gauntlet like a grapnel, the Prince Ecliptic anchored himself on a greenskin giant, visiting centrifugal kicks and sword sweeps through the surrounding creatures. Greenskins fired on the ghost moving through their ranks but only served to maul further the toppling bodies Kael Ra left in his wake. The shadowy forces of the Alaitoc craftworld moved through the neat carnage, the point-blank shuriken fury of their number like a razored wedge being driven through the muscle and sinew of the ork hordes. Bestial clusters of greenskins fell upon the Prince Ecliptic – drawn down on the threat by animal instinct.

>During the long years of the Seventh Black Crusade, the full might of the Blood Angels Chapter falls upon a vast Black Legion warband on the world of Mackan. Although the conflict ultimately ends in the near-extinction of the Blood Angels at the hands of Abaddon the Despoiler and his primary lieutenants – the sorcerer-lord Iskandar Khayon and the swordmaster Telemachon Lyras – the Blood Angels Reclusiarch Thalastian Jorus becomes one of the few Imperial heroes to ever land a blow against the Warmaster of Chaos.

>With his Chapter devastated, the Chaplain endures weeks of hardship in the wilderness and the constant trials of keeping his crazed warriors undetected on Mackan. When the time is right, Jorus leads his Death Company in a lightning raid behind enemy lines, butchering the unprepared sworn warriors of the Despoiler’s honour guard, and allowing the Reclusiarch to lock blades with Abaddon himself. It is said the Warmaster still bears the scars of that battle, even three millennia later.

>Whatever the truth of the matter, it is known that the Despoiler honoured Jorus once the war was over – perhaps in mockery, or perhaps with nothing but sincerity. After Mackan, thousands of Blood Angels corpses were desecrated, their gene-seed ruined beyond recovery. Of all the Chapter, only a handful of bodies were left undefiled: Reclusiarch Jorus and his Death Company, clad in their battered and broken black ceramite, seated in makeshift thrones made from the armour of those Black Legion warriors they had killed on that fateful night.

He could hear the agonies of his warriors in the darkness beyond and the butchery of greenskin savages falling on the shattered remains of his spearhead force. The autarch’s field protection sizzled and spat to nothingness. Kael Ra went to get to his feet, but he could not. His legs were no longer there. Even for an autarch – such as he, the shock was overwhelming. He turned and retched into the dark dirt. The earth was already saturated with his blood. He looked down again at the horror of his ragged midriff and the absence beyond. Through a sickening numbness he could still feel his boots and armour.

Slapping about in the gore-soaked mulch for his weapon, the Prince Ecliptic found that his diresword had landed a little distance away.

Have you ever read anything about any other autarchs? Can't think of anyone less impressive. All he achieved was to kill some ork and then get maimed. Mauryon's aspect warriors did a better job of killing orks with a few dozen repelling Bogga Bogga's entire tribe and killing the warboss.

I think the "Wraithguard/blades are Troop choices rather than Elites" overrides that and makes them count as troops, and therefore scoring units.

It also doesn't have the "when taken as part of a primary detachment" caveat that other units have (e.g. the Dark Angel masters that turn terminators/bikers into troops), so you could just take an allied shadowseer in with your Tau or something, and all those wraithguards count as troops.
