Path of the...
Posted 24 July 2012 - 06:47 AM
I'm trying to determine which Eldar race to pick for my 3rd 40k army. So far I have scratched of the Corsairs (FW) and I'm left with CwE and DE. My other armies include a DIY chapter and the Night Lords, so taking DE would mean I have all the most vicious psychopats in the game on my shelves (DE and NL)..., on the other hand CWE would add something neutral/positive to my collection. Still I love the DE models and the FW tantalus.
So I have the determined to decide this on the BL books, I ordered the Path of the Renegade and the Path of the Outcast for now. Have you guys read those and/or the Path of the Seer/Warrior? How good were they? Did they make you like or hate the particular group of eldar? Any recommendation and advice collecting the armies and the books is welcome
I don't care about spoilers, so If you want to share, please do

Vehicles - Saamhain
Infantry - Biel Taan
Wraithguard & Lord Spam - Iyaden
Or if you like a particular fluff
Psykers & Deathwatch Allies - Ulthwe
Necron Hunters - Altoic
In the current iteration of fluff, Altoic are in ascendant. They are the only Eldar craftworld that has retained their vows to the Old Ones (their gods) to hunt Necrons

I simply lack the information provided in the BL books, and as fluff interests me, that will be the determining factor . Any valuable info in the Path of the Seer/Warrior?
My main enemies include Orks (Biel-tan would be nice), Tau and CSM. DE can be fortunately tailored for everything.

The Path of the Eldar series tells the same story through different point sof view from 3 different friends. It really opens you up to how the Eldar work and I have seen the most vicous Eldar-Hater turn into a neutralist after reading the books. They're all great, but Outcast will be extended to end the story. Basically you get to see how an Eldar becomes a Warrior, Seer, and Outcast, all the main types of units used in Tabletop.
As for the Caftworlds Cru is pretty much spot on with those. In a Craftworld Eldar army every Aspect has a sepcific job, you'll be using units that are totally different then the others. If you use them well you will find not even Imperial Marines can stand before you. If you need any recommendations for anything just let me know.
I'm a Biel-Tan (Aspect Warriors) player, they are the most fierce protectors the of the maiden worlds and want to rebuild the Eldar Empire. They also have an abundance of hate for the Orks as they are near impossible to remove from a planet once invaded. Basically Biel-Tan is a society based around the Path of the Warrior. If you have any questions about the lore feel free to PM me or to look it up on Lexicanum. (one last thing though: what is CWE?)

To be just, our law must be cruel.
To stand upon the bedrock of law is our great duty. To presume to stand above it is our worst heresy.
We determine the guilty. We decide the punishment.

I tried making a list - but for Friendly games, not competitive (We play that all units take objectives, not only Troops btw):
Wraithseer + Bright Lance (Forge World) + 7 Wraithguards
Autarch, WJG, Fusion Gun, Scorpion Chainsword, Mandiblaster + 7 Warp Spiders
6 Striking Scorpions, exarch + Falcon, scatter laser, pulse laser
10 Dire Avengers, exarch; 2 shuriken catapults bladestorm + Wave serpent, TL missile launcher
Warp Hunter (Forge World)

Everyone has their own play style and we will see if this fits your play style =) though if you want some marine killers get some Reapers and Baneshees (<-- my signature unit right there!) but other then that looks like a solid list... btw NEVER get guardians unless your going to mass them... trust me I would know =P bloody useless hahahaha

It's strange, I bought stuff from Forge World three times so far and the longest tine I had to wait was 3 weeks.
While reading Path of the Outcast I decided upon Alaitoc. It's exactly what I was looking for
