    with the stratagems warlocks are pretty cool, even on foot, the council and the concordance gems make lock realy awesome

    Hey Phil and Matt thanks for the great analysis, its been a bit thin on the ground with the eldar codex..

    I’d like to say at this stage that I disagree with you on alaitoc windriders. I’m running a max squad of 9 with scatter lasers with a bike warlock for conceal and using cloudstrike to keep them off the table until my first shooting phase. With a successful guide (can be iffy I know) you throw out 27 hits, 22.5 wounds against GEQ of which 15 die assuming a 5+ save. That’s the better part of two infantry squads dead per turn and of course it gets better the following turn when they hit on 3s.

    To keep them alive vs a BS 4+ opponent who wants to focus them you can always pop lightning reflexes for a -3 to hit and essentially make them invulnerable.

    I agree they’re fragile but I think stratagems and Alaitoc give you a reliable way to keep them alive while dishing out huge amounts of dakka. That squad comes in at 252 points.

    • The problem is if you took those points and invested them in shadow specters they’d do a better job and with the same amount of buffs/cp investment be a -4 😉
