500 Pts. Combat patrol
Beside that I also had my 1ste Battle today against another eldar army unfortunatlly no pictures (forgot to grab the camera). which is a same because the Eldar of my friend are beautiful I'll probably get you some pictures of them someday.
as for the battle it was very weird and strange to have so much movement at my dispossel. combined with the sheer fire power of my list it was always a trade of to either move or shoot.
His list consisted of 2 x8 DA with exarch with dual shuri and blade storm and 5 warpspiders with exarch with dualcats, and an exarch with a warppack and fusion gun.
Mine was 2 x 6 Jetbikes with 1 Shuricanon and 3 vypers with shuricanons and scatterlasers.
the game was a Dawn of war deployment and with the objectives. In short the game was pretty hard for me it being my 2 5th ed game and 1ste Saim Hann game. I tried to get the moust out of my shooting but because I wasted a lot of movement getting away from cover to get a Clear LOS I usually had to move more then 6"and couldn't fire the Shuricanons on my vypers. in the End I managed to kill 1 DA unit and his Warpspiders with Autarch unit. I lost 6 Bikes in the proces (damm that 18"shooting from DA is annoying). I still had 2 units of bikes and all my vypers with 2 more turns to go so he called the game in my favour as it was time to get some Food.
- learn to eyeball distances better!
- 21 Shots at S6 is nasty!
- Warpspiders are fast, Be Carefull!
- Blade storm is as scary as I thoughed it would be!
- Don't hide to much since it costs a lot of movement to get clear LoS next turn!
overall a very nice first game which left me wondering how I am going to learn all this. It's hard to controll all that speed and balance it with shooting at the same time. All I can say is that I have even more respect for all you Saim Hann players out there. It's a lot harder then it looks
