Warlocks and Spiritseers always know one pair of powers, but crwftworld count as individual powers for all casting purposes, meaning the psyker in question can choose which to cast, and doesn’t block another from casting the “twinned” power. Warlock Conclavesinterestingly enough, make for excellent shields for your Ynnari warlords. After a friendly Asuryani unit shoots, it can move 7″ as if it was the movement phase; however, it craftworls not advance as part of this extra move and will be unable to charge that turn.

If the Avatar of Khaine is slain in the Fight Phase, do not remove it as a casualty. At the start of your turn, you may pick an Iyanden Spiritseer. Wrath of the Dead 1CP: This rule mean that now Eldar flyers can potentially fly between 2 points all the time, good luck positioning your Crimson Hunters in a 6″ bubble near Asurmen. Lord of War Choice Recommendations: All of their weapons are guaranteed to cause a unit of your choice to die horribly, and they can benefit from Soulbursts quite immensely.

Aside from the obvious Fire Dragons or D-Cannon Wraithguard just about every eligible unit can benefit from being able to be placed where you want, when you eldag. Particularly helpful if your Wraithguard are lugging Wraithcannons.

Autarchs and Farseers can offer very useful army wide buffs to supplement your non-statue units, should you need the extra support. Tempest of Blades 3 CP: Hemlock Wraithfighters are arguably more useful though, given their S12 autohitting D-Scythes and as an extra vector for Runes of Battle debuffs. A Guardian heavy list benefits from this as it allows you to max out the Squad sizes for double Weapon Platforms in one drop.

All attacks against that unit are resolved at -1 to hit for the rest of the phase. Needless to say, this attribute comes into play far more often on multi-wound models and supports vehicle-heavy builds particularly well. All powers have a range of 18″, are active for one full craftwodld, can buff only Asuryani Infantry and Bikerand debuff everything.


Synonymous with Wraith units, it should come as no surprise that Iyanden offers the most incentives to field anything Wraith related. So technically they gain no real special rule advantage in the Craftworld army list except Ceaftworld Doom, but that is both a strength and a weakness.

Ads by Project Wonderful! Dark Reapers only have the Shoot action as a viable Soulburst action but that is all they need to fire two barrages of insanely accurate rape across the board.

A note on Drop Pods: In the meantime, they serve as excellent vector for RoB buffs not only for your Warlord, but for any additional Craftworld screening units you may have fielded alongside them. This page was last modified on 31 Decemberat A unique little sub-division of eldar, the Corsairs are to the Aeldari as the Death Korps of Krieg are to the Imperial Guard; an overpriced Forge World exclusive faction with a fancy little twist on the standard way they’d normally play.

Alaitoc also offers a unique stratagem that requires enemy units shooting at a squad of rangers to roll specifically a 6 in order to hit them, letting you save the Conceal power for more important units doing the killing. Matchless Agility 1 CP: Ynnari may only do so by using the Stratagem “Treasures of the Craftworlds”.

Given you want that dick up front spamming Smite and Executioner, this is awesome for supporting the unit he’s with. WindridersVypers and Wasp Assault Walkers offer fast and relatively cheap platforms to field Shuripults or Shuricannons on, though they find better synergy with other attributes compared to Biel-Tan’s. Warlocks are necessary in lists heavy with Howling Banshees, and Spiritseers are recommended should you go the Wraithblade route with them.

Unfortunately, no other unit in this slot can directly benefit from soulbursts, but can at least attempt to trigger it for any of your infantry or bikers in a pinch. If you’re extra concerned about ranged enemy reprisal, a Conceal Warlock can go camp with them to give anyone trying to bip your Reapers a -2 to-hit penalty. Remember that you drop down during the Movement Phase so the vehicle has to sit still for a turn. Regardless of what you give it, it’s no slouch in melee and can easily clear off MEQ and TEQ enemies in short order bare handed or with a big-ass Ghostglaive for extra melee punch.

If you want to see the game table flip: Wraithknights and Skathach Wraithknights. Sadly, there currently aren’t any Corsair-specific HQ units in 8th Edition.

Warhammer 40,/Tactics/Eldar(8E) – 1d4chan

This can help new players by not forcing them to keep all of a squad’s weaponry in mind, but it also requires you move the right squad for the job to the right place, which can be tactically challenging. This way the only real loss is access to the Warlord traits, Path of Command, and a free relic. Warp Spiders can easily bump up to a -4 to hit modifier much the same way Shadow Spectres can; Flicker Jump, Conceal and Lightning Fast reflexes can all be stacked if your Spiders find themselves in a pinch, though keeping enemy units further than 12″ away may prove challenging since that just happens to be the range of their Death Spinners.

Named Characters must take the Craftworld Trait associated with their Craftworld. Spice with the Psytronome of Iyanden if you want to guarantee the death of whatever you’re trying to punch. Forge World Hornets and Wasp Assault Walkers are also particularly durable in their own right, and can very easily serve as Heavy Weapon vectors if you wish to spam the firepower. Forge World Hornets happen to be the only vehicles that can also get a consistent -4 to hit modifier and are also the only units that can do so without Psyker support.

Select a Wraith Construct model, and it regains 1d3 wounds lost earlier. Lastly, Wraithseers enjoy the charge re-rolls for two reasons: You have a good number of units that benefit more from Word of the Phoenix and Strength from Death than they ever would Battle Focus.

Warhammer 40,000/Tactics/Eldar(8E)

Eldar vehicles went up in toughness and resiliency but also skyrocketed in price just like all vehicles in this edition. In the situations where it’s actually useful, it’s very good as you can potentially bait an opponent into making some very poor target Priority decisions while saving your Lightning Fast Reflexes elfar a more valuable unit.

Pick an Asuryani unit that has fallen back this turn; it can now shoot and charge despite having fallen back. So technically if you wanted to run an all wraith army you would get more mileage from Craftwprld Strength from Death.

Granted, it may be more cost effective to stick with the standard fair offered in the more conventional detachment slots. They’re also a very flexible unit at a reasonable price tag; they can bring Shuricannons and Flamers for anti-infantry roles, or can slap on AMLs or Bright Lances to deal with enemy monsters or vehicles.
