crimsonhunter

So, you have 1850 points of Eldar, but still no dedicated anti-air. So we will add a Crimson Death Formation. It consists of 3 Crimson Hunters, one must be an exarch. So 405 points and we have 3 flyers with two bright lances and a pulse laser each with preferred enemy(flyers and flying monstrous creatures) and with 4+ cover save no matter what and if they jink they can reroll it. Nasty. The Crimson Hunter is an AV10 Vector Dancer flyer with two bright lances and a pulse laser(S8 AP2 Heavy 2). The Exarch has a ballistic skill of 5 and the ability to make precision shots on a 5+. Really nasty. Precision shots are fun when you kill the guy with a missle launcher. So we have 2255 points of Eldar but no defense squads. So we will add a Dire Avenger Shrine to guard objectives. Now we have 6 scoring units. Awesome when you pull that Domination tactical objective card. The Dire Avenger Shrine is a good formation, especially with the killing strike special rule, once per game your Shuriken Catapaults are made Assault 3! I have one exarch with a diresword (Awesome AP2 Weapon) and shuriken pistol. So the formation is 205 points and gives you 2495 points of Eldar and you can play 2500 point games.
