Eldar, Tau / 'Nid, DE Battle

Gents,

I have never faced Eldar, so have absolutely no idea what to expect and what to field. I regularily hand Glendor his ass, but that is bound to change.

I'm figuring that this battle is big enough that we should offer up some suggestions to each other... or experiences.

Well, I've NEVER faced up against Eldar. Ever. Not with any army in the 17 months I've been playing. Tau on the other hand...
We just have to hug cover like crazy and we'll be fine.

The tau will be easy enough to beat in CC, the trouble will be getting there.

As for the Eldar, they will be a much tougher nut to crack (I assume). I've gone through their codex many times, and the Swooping Hawks will be a massive pain. I'm thinking if we drop Bio-Acid mines like nuts on these guys we can whither them down enough...

Wraithlords will be tricky as well. They'll likely be mounted with Starcannons, which can almost take out a Tyrant or Carnifex in one round of shooting. They're also near indestructable with they're T8 and 3+ save.
Perhaps Poison mines will do the trick... Seeing as a tough guy like a Tyrant or Carnifex will like die to Starcannon fire if it ever got close, and any gaunts couldn't hurt it at all...
Perhaps raveners? I always equip mine with rending claws/scything talons, and they're quick enough to get there, and are faster than the WL. Any roll of a 6 takes off a wound, so perhaps there is our answer.

We can let the Dark Brethren take care of armour with their Dark Lances.

That's all I have so far, I'll think up more later.


Cheers,
Lawrence.

Don't Discount Kroot as a counter assault troop selection. Glendor uses those to great ability.

Kermit: I have no more special powers in this fourm than you do, sorry :sad:

Well, my brother plays eldar, so, I have some experiance in the area.

Wraithlords are typicaly not a problem, as anything with rending claws quickly makes mince of them. Especialy if that thing has implant attack.

The problem I see is that they will have large amounts of heavy weapons, brightlances, starcannons and the lot. Although, we will have to rely mostly on dark eldar to help on that front.

Biovores are a great idea, but not really against wraithlords, still everyone should try to get three if able. since 9-12 biovores shooting frag/poison should do wonders to eliminate guardians/aspect warriors.

I'd suggest hitting them on one side of the battlefield, then, have dark eldar ranged units pick off eldar units that try to flee, should work nicely since we have the assault advantage.
