I don't know if anhyone has had the time to use eldar yet in skirmish mode, but you really should. They're really cool, I especially like the Avatar and the seercouncil. The Seerers with 15 upgraded whitchblades are almost indestructable. Combine them with a couple of fire prisms, a few wraith lords and the avatar and you have an unstopable army! Your fews?

Haven't Played them [ or the Orks] yet.... They look intresting, but I tend to lean towards the more suicidal Side of things.......

I played them today just to try them again. They aren't as bad as I though. My own fireprisms were causing me more casualties than the enemies :lol: . The huge demon guy is simply amazing. Really hard to stop him.

I need to practise with them, I got pissed off because I got my ass kicked online, the troops are a bit weak, and it takes a while till you can get the fireprisms, which are unbelivably powerful.

Like the forces of Chaos> I really hate chaos, but thats just me. I think the Orks are funny, eldar and Space Marines are cool. I really hope they make an expansion pack which include imperial gaurd. I used to collect them. They're a cool race.

Yeah the demon guy is the avatar. If you combine him with your troops they have an unlimited amount of morale, which makes your army more combat efficient. He is really powerful too.

I think the eldar are very weak when you first start out. Gaurdians are a fairly weak unti and if your rushed by stronger units at the start like Orks, and you don't have very good defense, it's pretty much all over. I can't play online so much, I have a 56k :(

Well, I used to collect the "Tau" when I was but a little kid :lol: Unfortunately, theyre not in the game :cry: But, I have kept my hopes up, apparently there is/was an official vote as to which army should next be included.

They were talking about it on the ingame chat... They told me where to go, but I couldnt find it. Maybe its bs? :confused:

Yeah, the Tau rocked, all alien dudes, their infantry had the best weapons, long range and power. Damn, it would rock if they were in the game, something that could possibly stand a chance against the Space Marines! :p

Like I say, i'd love to see the Imperial Gaurd as a playable army. (I know you can command a few platoons but meh.)

The coolest thing about them is thier Mass armies of men, Leman Russ tanks, sentinel squads, ratling snipers, ogryns (HUGE Dumb dumb troll like men the imperial gaurd have corporated into thier armies), Commisars (Commanders, but you can have more than one in your armie according to the codex), Basilisk tank etc etc. Ok so pretty much all of Imperial Gaurd rule :lol:

I really ain't that familiar with this whole Warhammer universe but are the purple mean looking aliens from Space Hulks part of it? 'Cause I would really like to see some of them :) .
