The Wild Host will make it's first appearance outside of Klang Valley at the 40K combat patrol tourney organized by Gameforge in Penang. At 400 points its a challenge to design a competitive list since all Eldar units are expensive so i decided to go with theme instead. My list will be based around what the Saim-Hann is famous for ..... Speed. With that, the force that will be wrecking havoc in Penang on the 20th March will be :
1 Warlock on jetbike with embolden
6 Guardian jetbikes (3 with shuriken cannons)
1 Vyper with scatter lasers
5 Warp spiders including an Exarch.
Initially i wanted to go for an all guardian jetbike force but decided to put in a Vyper and some Warp Spiders to act as support.
The guardian will be led by a Warlock with Embolden for much needed Leadership re-roll. I'm sure they will be shot at a lot and without fortune to help them survive, I foresee making leadership check quite often. I hope I'm proven wrong.
Tactics is quite obvious, shoot from afar and proceed to strategically reposition themselves. Warlock is there if i ever need a S9 weapon. Spiders will be fun as harassment unit and i'm still trying to find points to give them deep strike ability.
And yes, the spiders aren't fully painted yet but i have 5 days to go so no worries there.
