Welcome to the Gunshow
I have a 40k tournament this weekend that I need to get ready for. It's at Merlyn's so Im not worried about painting, as such I'm thinking about breaking my eldar out for the event.
It's been a while since I've played them and I want to get some Use out of my Seer council... The points limit is 1850 so this is what I think I am gonna bring:
Farseer: Runes of warding, Runes of witnessing, spirit stones, Doom, Fortune, Guide: 175
8 Warlocks: 1 W/ Embolden & Spear, 7 W/ Destructor: 278
-Serpent: Scatterlasers, Shuriken cannon, Spirit stones, Star Engines: 150
10 Avengers: Exarch, double shuriken catapults, bladestorm: 152
-Wave Serpent: Bright lances, shuriken Cannon, spirit stones, star engines: 170
11 Gaurdians: Scatterlaser: 103
10 Gaurdians: Scatterlaser: 95
5 Pathfinders: 120
9 Warp spiders: Exarch, double death spinner: 215
3 War-walkers: 6 Scatterlasers: 180
This is a very meta-game specific list. Tyranids are very popular at Merlyn's and I will face them at least for 1 round, if I am doing well I most likely will have to face them twice. If I end up winning my first two games, odds are I will be facing Jason and his foot Gaurd. His list is very tough and I am going to need lots and lots of instant death shots to take him out. You might notice that my army can put out 62 str 6 shots a turn. That should be enough to push through any of his shenanigans that he pulls with his guard.
The one matchup I am really worried about is Nick's Eldar. It's essentially the mirror match, the difference is that he has two more Grav-tanks in his army (unfortunately I only own 2) of course brightlances aren't exactly a good weapon to take against wave serpents so I'm hopefully I will be able to knock down is tanks via my torrent of fire.
Anyway I just figured I would put this out there, I will hopefully be able to take lots of pics and provide you with some battle reports. I've finally got some video capabilities so I might make a couple vids from the tournament. If you want to hear a voice more annoying then Brent's get ready, it's gonna be fun.
