That theres one cheery Harlequin.

Speaking of, does anyone know how Harlequins are viewed by other Eldar? Does the fact that they technically don't have souls cause any friction with other Eldar factions?

>> No.41320303

Only the Solitaire has no soul. The rest of them have souls, they're just pledged to Cegorach

Generally speaking, both sides view the Harlequins with fear and respect. The Harlequins are wild and free which tempts the Craftworlders but their way of life is also incredibly dangerous since it means facing temptation at all times, and being in the webway and the coveted Black Library on top of that. The Dark Eldar know better than to fuck with the Harlequins since they're the only other people who know the Webway as well or better as them. And the Harlequins are sort of a common bond for the other two, since they keep all of the Eldar historical records and so are the only people who can prove without a doubt that the Commorites and Craftworlders are one people.

>> No.41320563

Dude the Solitaire has a soul.

I know this, cause its a big part of their fluff that they have no spiritual protection, so when they die their soul gets eaten by Slaanesh.

Its why they have a broken spirit stone on their model, to represent this.

Huh. could have sworn he used to be a blank. Anyway, they have to have souls one way or another. They have psykers.

Truth. I love their models. Keep trying to make a Skyweaver heavy army work, but as awesome as they are, 60 points a bike is rough. I like the idea of slapping an Autarch on there to keep them safe from Overwatch but then you really need something to provide anti-tank since an autarch with banshee mask and jetbike is like 90 points, 100 once you factor in a decent weapon like a laser lance or fusion gun. They fuck up pretty much any infantry they get into assault with though, since a full squad of zephyrglaives is packing 24 S5 AP2 attacks. And re-rollable Jink in the formation.

Well, their masks are apparently psychic weapons that dig up all your greatest fears and project them holographically to throw you off your game mid-combat (and also because fuck you, scary murder clown)

Given they also use them for their performances, they must have different settings available. Presumably, one of those settings is a mask that digs up all your deepest fetishes.

Of course, that's probably a bad idea to play with unless you're the Solitaire.

Don't get me wrong, Karandras is my favorite or second-favorite Phoenix Lord

I like Baharroth at least as much, but there's a sheer hilarious joy in having Karandras walk on behind a Tau firing line and watching them cry when their Ethereal evaporates under shuriken fire and Karandras hides under a rock for the rest of the turn.

It doesn't always work, but when it does, it's amazing.

I've been wanting to go full Hitchcock though and build a list that just rains down Hawks and Scourges on the enemy led by Baharroth. Problem is, you can only get one precision-striking Scourge squad since you only have one Baharroth. Still, kind of hilarious if you load them up with the melta lances and drop them directly on the enemy's biggest, nastiest armor.

Radical. But I'm not totally sure what purpose their Phoenix Lord serves. Why is a Death Jester the leader of the Dark Reapers? Seriously, it's the same gun with one extra shot. Although Maugan did figure out how to shoot it twice which is impressive.

Both of those are Mantis Shrimp.

Bullet Shrimp are different than Mantis Shrimp. They aren't as garish looking, and instead clack their claws together to make sonic burst attacks that they shoot at their prey. Mantis Shrimp, meanwhile, makes water explode by punching things.

Basically, Mantis Shrimps are Khornate Daemons, while Pistol Shrimps are Noise Marines

Lycanthropes are given their form as a blessing from the Overfiend Umuruk, Lord of Suffering from Savagery and Ruinous Ambition (basically NE Uber Social Darwinist demon lord and patron of evil druids)

Those afflicted and not worshipers of the Overfiend are unable to control themselves, and their minds devolve into pure predatory instinct, making them a danger to everyone who encounters them.

Still, lycanthropes are super rare, and don't appear to often, and Umuruk hands out lycanthrope forms based upon the particular worshipper. So I plan on making a bunch o different beasties by looking at nasties critters from documentaries and old Animal Planet Most Extreme videos.

Let me try helping out here.
Moon A: Biggest of the three. It determines power.
Moon B: Second biggest and it determines time.
Moon C: The artificial moon and the smallest. It helps balances things out. Too much power causes your time to run out, and not enough power messes with time.
Seasons influence the power and time but one season has all three moons together and during this time causes transformations to equal pure rape.

The main books about Eldar and DE are the "Path of..." series (Warrior, Seer and Outcast for CWE, Renegade, Incubus and Archon for DE). They're bit of hit and miss.

The CWE do give pretty good insight to Eldar life, whcih we rarely see since 90% of fluff is focused on combat. However, the protagonists of all books are annoying whiny cunts, and the author seems to have seriously messed up the scale of things (Alatoic, despite being a major Craftworld, apparently has a population in low millions and gets its ass kicked by a single Marine Chapter and indetermined amount of IG; this is despite the last time Imperium tried invading Alatoic it cost them an entire sector fleet).

The DE ones are in my opinion a bit better, but they still have problems. The 2nd book is pretty much entirely filler, for one. Still, they give some insight into how DE live and act, and as a bonus the first two contain quite a lot of stuff about Exodites as well (the Exodite priestess of Isha turns out to be suprisingly badass near the end of the first book).

Besides those, there are multiple short stories. Haven't read them all, but some are good, others less so. I do recommend "Mistress Baeda's Gift", a Dark Eldar love story from "Fear the Alien" anthology book.

Although I must say that the best DE fluff I've read is not in any official book, but a fanfic called "Truebprn" posted on the dark city forum. The writer knew DE fluff in and out, so he did a really good job making the story fit the background and the characters to be both enjoyable and clearly Dark Eldar. I'd advice tracking it down.

Indeed. Pistol shrimp's claw is eolved specifically to create a shockwave due to the cavitation effect, making it an organic sonic gun. In mantish shrimp's case cavitation is more of a side effect of it punching so fast.

Fun fact: as the cavitation bubble collapses, the heat and pressure momentarily reach the point where matter turns to plasma and fusion of hydrogen atoms to helium occurs. The mantish shrimp punches so hard, it induces nuclear fusion!

None of those are quite as bade as were-stomatopods, though were-cassowaryes get close.
Mantis shrimp punch faster than the speed of sound, with enough force to break the bones in your hands. Scale that to human size and were-stomapods would be demolishing buildings with their punches and reducing anybody hit by them into chunky salsa.

Trueborn, sorry.

Exodites play a minor role in the first two DE books, as in the first one the DE kidnap an Exodite priestess of Isha and trashe the World Spirit shrine. In the second an Incubus and Harlequin end up having to return to the shrine and fix the mess the DE caused, since the World Spirit gets really pissed off and it's causing the climate on the planet to go haywire.

They don't really play a major role, but it does include some descriptions about the Exodite world and about how the World Spirit works. Also in the end of the first book the priestess, who'se been kind of ignored for the most of the book is freed and proves to be fairly badass. She can use her power over life to controll bacteria and viruses and make them replicate faster than your immune system can destroy them .

Warp Spiders aren't really connected to the infinity circuit.

Yeah, the avengers especially should have additional weapon options, seeing how they are the closest thing to generalists in the eldar arsenal. Maybe have shit like two members of a 5 man squad get to take some special weapons (that is still assault type though), like a fusion gun, or a lassblaster or whatever the swooping hawks have.
Also, maybe have the option to give them close combat weapons too, seeing how at least their fluff portrays them fighting in both a shooty, as well as assaulty way.

For other aspect warriors, just having a bit of variety in the weapons, while still retaining the overall theme, would be nice. Shit like Dark Reapers being able to take other long range eldar weaponry like bright lances, shuriken cannons etc, instead of just the reaper launchers (still destroying foes from afar), Fire Dragons being able to switch fusion guns for flamers, Banshees maybe getting some heavier hitting melee weapons, maybe two handed swords or something, but losing the shuriken pistol in exchange etc.
Just adding a bit of variety to the mix, while retaining the overall theme of the aspect. It just feels dumb to me that right now, ultimately each aspect just boils down to what gun the fucker is carrying.

True that, but I got what I wanted, which was Morr doing Incubi things. And his sacrifice]/spoiler] was pretty gar. So does he have the same fate as a Young King, or any exarch taken by their Phoenix Lord, where he just has the peace of oblivion?

Fucking kids these days. Hand holding without protection. In public no less! The youth really have been corrupted. I weep for the future.

>> No.41337670

IMO its perfect the way it is.
When I go to fire dragons I don't go to them to kill infantry, that's not who or how they are. They are dedicated armor busters.

Also its why eldar are the best army in the game. Because when deployed appropriately they bring overwhelming alpha, with no wasted multi-class shooting.

Yeah, and we did learn some interesting things about the Incubi, though it somewhat contradicts other fluff. According to the book Drazhar isn't Arhra (and apparently just coincidentally has stats identical to a Phoenix Lord) and Arhra is dead, despite there being fluff in the BRB and Eldar codex timelines about Karandras dueling him.

Still, the Incubus version of Arhra's fall is pretty awesome. We knew before that he apaprently got corrupted by Chaos and trashed the original Aspect Shrine, but the Incubi say the reason why he was corrupted is because he went alone to face off againt a huge host of Chaos after declaring the other Phoenix Lords too cowardly to take the fight to the enemy. He predictably loses after cutting down countless daemons, and gets corrupted. After destroying the Shrine of Asyryan he shows up before he disciplines, burning with the dark light of Chaos and tells them he's fighting the corruption but can't resist it for much longer, and declares that as his final test for his follwoers, they must best him in combat and strike him down before he's fully claimed by Chaos. After doing so his followers partook in his still uncorrupted essence so that Arhra might live on through them.

They are. They're just not a good mono army. Fantastic as allies to their cousins though. I'm running a list right now that uses mostly Harlequins backed up by Jain Zar, a Wraithlord, and a couple of the Eldar fighters and it's working really well. Actually, the fighters are the least used bit, but I don't want to give them up in case I need anti-air.

In theory.

In reality you averaging to dead marines a turn, maybe three.

He sucks. And it breaks my heart. I dunno, he should have gotten an AP 2 weapon or something.

>> No.41344772

They are pretty brutals against 4+ and below units, not bad agaisnts MEQ and light tanks, and can combine their shots to hunt the heaviests tanks, but theirs guns are 18'' and they only have a 4+ save (with mostly permanent 4+ cover save as well), so they can go down very quickly... As far as I can tell I don't think you are shooting yourself in the leg simply by taking them like you would with storm guardians or banshees, thought.

Their rules are aivables on Forgeworld Downloads anyway.

>> No.41344990

Aren't banshees sort of better nowadays, as they can outright deny overwatch?

>> No.41345183

Sort of, but that only fix some of their numberous problems... They still don't have assaults transports (except raiders, which will blow as soon as whatever fart in their direction), they can be fast but they will still die to whatever shoot at them, and even if you somehow manage to get your squad in melee without suffering losses, their impact is just not worth it, as scorpions do roughly the same agaisnt MEQ (and better agaisnt the rest of infantry) without needing an alignment of constellations to work.


>> No.41345268

What would make banshees viable then?
Getting furious charge, and maybe having better swords?
Or maybe giving them something like 4+ invulnerable save against shooting, to represent them dodging and parrying shots ala this:

>> No.41345276

Banshees are by no means a bad unit. Yes, they're fragile. They're Eldar. They should be fragile. They deny Overwatch and are fast enough to regularly get a turn two charge, so they don't need an assault transport. Even if you feel the utter, crushing need for one, you can ally in a Raider, Venom, or Starweaver from DE/Harlequins.

Their damage output isn't monstrous, they're not going to blow through whole squads in a single turn, but they're good enough to wipe out a squad of heavy infantry over a few rounds of combat with enough models left to charge a second, weakoned target with reasonable odds of success. This is especially true when taken as part of an Aspect Host for the WS5, and they become absurdly good when fielded alongside the Avatar.

Banshees are good. If you think they aren't, it's not because they're bad, but because muhc of of the Eldar codex is verging on being absurdly overpowered and the decent but not broken units look underwhelming by comparison.

Either that or you're just a shit player who runs them face-first into Heavy Bolters.
