Eldar 6th ed ally ideas...

Post  Heretic Steve on Wed Jun 27, 2012 8:02 am

An archon on a jetbike joining my Farseer and Seer Council on jetbikes would be nice. The archon would have a 2++ reroll save with fortune.

A venom with 12 poison shots and a blaster inside is cheap and effective.

How about an Incubi unit or a Ravager?...

I need an ally that makes my seer council fearless. Any ideas?

You could ally a farseer to either Dark Eldar or Tau and use him to boost your units with Fortune, Guide, or Doom.

Um........ Dark Eldar Archons in the recent codex that came out in late 2010 cannot have jetbikes.

Although I can see Eldar and Dark Eldar working together would be nice.

meh, there all space elves... apparently, they dont mind lol. Or perhaps, its so that things like Harliquin lists can be done... either way, what I see is a farseer in every list... imagine a farseer with fortune attached to a squad of Paladin's... talk about tough to kill re-rollable 2+ armor?

Actually Eldar are the ones that escaped onto craftworlds the birth of slaanesh by inventing the paths to keep them on track. Plus creating soulstones for everyone that way their souls don't go to slaanesh when they dye. Thus Craftworld Eldar was born.

The other eldar that escaped to the webway and didn't get killed like the rest of the race, but instead slowly their essence of their souls was being drained by slaanesh. The webway eldar then found out that by torchuring, flaying, enslaving, and having fun with other lower lifeforms AKA the other non-eldar races in 40k they get stronger by feeding off the essence of the dying victims soul. Thus Dark Eldar was born. They don't allow any psykers in their midst for the one purpose to prevent Slaanesh from trying to kill them outright.

Now to answer your question they don't like each other, but they don't hate each other. It's kinda a grey area because Lord Vect of Commorragh actually saved a farseers forces. He said simply because life was more amusing for her to be in it for some awkward reason.

I agree with you,... So, in 6th ed, why are they listed as "Battle Brothers"? They should be "allies of convenience" right?

The dark eldar just don't fit the craft world way of life and cand since theyre almost required to be malicious bastards. Lol. I can see them fighting off other races, since the dark eldar dont gain anything from killing eldar...

Core craftworld and cannon dark eldar are diametrically opposed but there are 2 cases in which they would work together well, and would do so with incredible synergy. I believe that they are "battle brothers" to reflect those 2 cases. Those 2 are of course, the Harlequins and the Corsairs. Also they may reflect the splinter factions of rogue pathfinders who fall to the dark eldar way of life, which are hinted at in the eldar book.
