It sucks, never use Blade Storm trust me. Who wants to get an extra shot with all those guns. Stupid Eldar players! Basically it just adds an extra shot to any shurken weapon in the squad, mainly just the Avenger Shuriken Catapults and a Shuriken pistol if the Exarch has one. So you have 9 avengers and a Exarch with a pistol, normally thats 19 shots (2 per avenger and 1 for the Exarch) Blade Storm makes it 29 shots. But you can't shoot in the next shoot phase so only do it if your going to end up in an extended assault or you need it to wipe a squad or something big out. And every Eldar player should be using 2-3 at least of these bad boyz and Blade Storm is a must. But what do I know?

Don used that *$#@&^!(> on me to take out a full squad of Oblitz... Made me very unhappy... Then in the next round they hopped back in their Wave Serpent. I don't play Eldar so I don't know exactly how useful it is againt most armies, but anything that can wipe out a squad with 6 wounds and 2+ saves is pretty badass imo.

I swear I'm OK guys. I know it's been a month since I've actually played 40K (stupid Blood Bowl) but I think it could work.

A no farseer list, its possible. I just read an article on BoLS about a 2 Autarch list, putting everything in reserve and coming out on turn 2 with most of your army (because of that +2 to reserve). Of course the list has to be fast. There's also dual Phoenix Lord lists (usually Karandaras and Jain-Zar).

Thats where I got the idea from. I'm only running 1 Autarch right now though. I might get one on a jet bike at some point. And if I ever were to go dual Lord I'd go Fuegan and Maugan-Ra because they're equally good at taking out infantry and armor even though I think Jain Zar is by far the most lethal of all the Lords in melee. Karandaras is nice but you have to wait to go at I 1 so he's vulnerable against some things. I just realized he'd be decimated by Blood Angels. All those power weapons and melta's would go right through his armor. Oh and as far as Guard vs Eldar go ask Commisar Eric or Christian how that usually turns out. Razz

Yeah let me know how that works out, seems good on paper.

Maugan-Ra is a rockstar, literally. Fuegan's ok I just think for what he does you might as well save the points and get an avatar. I do agree with you about Karandaras, but like all eldar you would have to pick your fights. Asurmen is good too but he's so expensive. I do know though that Baharroth is worthless, hahaha.

Yeah I'm sure there was a time when Baharroth was good but he's pretty much the only Lord with a Str of 4 (the other being Asurmen) with no real benefit. Maybe he will be better when the codex gets upgraded. The one good thing about Feugan is he can be put in a squad and a vehicle plus he's actually faster than the Avatar.

Wrong. It was 1 Dire Avenger Exarch. Or as I like to call him "Eric Bane". How many squads did he take out almost single handed in the last game?

Better shooting troops than guard that's where. None of that first rank second rank crap lets just make guns that have 2 shots, and lets make them all assault while we're at it.
