Codex: Craftworlds is a seriously awesome book. Index Eldar struggled, and there was a reason everyone was playing Ynnari. Now however. Hey everyone, Reecius here to continue the review of the new 8th ed Codex: Craftworlds review. This time, we will cover most of the units in the. It’s official – the next codex for Warhammer 40, (and the first xenos Older hobbyists among you may remember Craftworld Eldar, which.
Warlocks and Spiritseers love getting the chance to shake off the odd Mortal Wound they may pick up from the stray Perils that occasionally crop up in Psyker-heavy detachments as well. At the start of your turn, you may pick an Iyanden Spiritseer. To all the jetbike fans, this’ll let you slap heavy weapons back on your bikes so you can relive those 7th edition memories of “relentless” jetbikes.
Wraithknights and Skathach Wraithknights. Not only do you need a Ynnari Special Character as a Warlord, but she is also the cheapest way to access the potent Word of the Phoenix psychic power. Depending on whether or not you’re going MSU with the Banshees, a standard 5-Banshee squad can appreciate having a 5-Dire Avenger squad tag along inside the Wave Serpent as a screening unit of sorts to give them a bit of cover fire.
Of special note, Shadow Spectres can become even more of a pain to get rid of if using Alaitoc’s “-1 to hit” rule, making them borderline untouchable at range assuming your Warlock is still casting conceal on them, that’s -3 to hit from 12″ or further! Alaitoc – Pathfinders 1 CP: Shining Spearsif you’re not fielding Howling Banshees or Wraithblades, should be your immediate go-to for Melee combat.
The Yncarne is the single most expensive character the Aeldari as a whole can take, but is nearly an army all on its own. They can also be used in a Webway Strike, popping up 9″ from an enemy unit and filling it with anywhere from 20 single elf squad to 80 two elf squads shuriken shots that re-roll 1s to hit. 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.
The Great Enemy 1 CP: Additionally, none of our powers ever needs a line of sight, feel free to hide your psykers as needed.
Warhammer 40,/Tactics/Eldar(8E) – 1d4chan
This is a significant change so you must decide what you want out of Soulburst or Craftworld Attributes and Warlord Traits. If they ever even make it so close alive to begin with.
The caveat, however, is the loss of any bonus CP you’d have gained from the detachment had it remained “pure”. They won’t be using Battle Focus anyway, so going Ynnari is a flat upgrade codexx Yvraine cgaftworld them into beasts.
This way the only real loss is access to the Warlord traits, Path of Command, and a free relic. Conversely, every other flier is improved exponentially by this modifier, since their BS is actually affected by how damaged they happen to be. Corsairs are unique in that basically everything available to your standard Aeldari Troop choices is basically open game to your pirates.
Non-special Asuryani Characters can take anything below, and if you have an Asuryani Warlord you may take one for free in your list. Not only are they relatively cheap and disposable, but they can also indirectly heal their ward when slain either from combat or from a Perils of the Warp assuming the rolls for mortal wounds are modest. Autarchs and Farseers can offer very useful army wide buffs crsftworld supplement your non-statue units, should you need the extra support.
Two D-cannons will crafwtorld 3 hits on average and therefore 0. Only works once though. Cast any non-Quicken buffs on the Spears, then Quicken them. Jain Zar accompanying your Howling Banshees can make them that much more of a bitch to deal with, not necessarily due to the Always Fights First rule though that’s definitely still a plusbut the ability to disable an enemy’s weapon while in combat.
While this costs each affected squad d3 Mortal Wounds, you’re at worst losing 1 Wraithblade in exchange for what’s likely the entirety of the squad they just charged.
Don’t take Eldar Titans, they are overpriced, inflexible, not cost effective, and are still much squishier than their Imperial counterparts. Sadly, there currently aren’t any Corsair-specific HQ units in 8th Edition. Used coddx a friendly unit advances.
A group of Shadow Spectres accompanied by a Warlock Skyrunner casting conceal can be a force to be feared indeed.
Looking at matched play rules we can see that almost every single army can cast only 6 powers other than Smite per turn and moreover only from their specific discipline, while Eldar can cast 18 different powers different variations of warlocks powers are being considered separate e,dar Finally, they themselves can take the infamous Psytronome of Iyanden into battle alongside their Wraith buddies.
Stacked with Fortune to become freakishly hard to budge. That friendly unit may make an out-of-sequence shooting attack. This stratagem bears special mention.
