i used to love eldar. my TT armt of them has never lost despite once using the wrong army list and playing 750pts against 1000pts necrons. but in DOW they suck. the dark reapers in TT have weaker missile launchers, not rapid firinf guns. howling banshees in TT can rip through a squad of terminators but in DOW they run too slowly and even then lose in CC. in TT theyre is an aspect called striking scorpioms who are physically stronger than banshees and have better armour, just weaker weapons. they could rip through twice their number in IG a turn in TT but if they are in DC they will probably suck. and of course dire avengers (guadians with kasrkin armour and SM accuracy) are missing despite being the mainstay of most TT armies. also in TT eldar only have a few infiltrating uniys. yhey rely on FIREPOWER and numerous TRANSPORTS to win, but in DOW they seem to have neither. what do you think about TT likeness in DOW, feel free to rant about any of the races
i agree with you eldar do lack in this game but o well.. and the imperial guard i think personnaly suck kaskrin die to easily and they should have upgrades for the leman russ plus there should be heavy weapons team there isnt a imperial guard army without them:(... your eldar TT army sounds awesome my imperial guard army is like that :D:D not lost yet (hell yer) it even beat a necron army with monolith !!!
I want a "I could care less, screw you and your tabletop." - option.
I didn't make it!
thanks for your rant i will bear that in mind in my mod, , im sure banshies arnt that strong though.
[INDENT]they arent that awesome but they have weapons which COMPLETELY bypass the termys armour so on a turn where they charge in an unupgraded squad with no exarch you will inflict 7 wounds on ANY marine squad be it scouts or terminators and that will happen before any marines can fight bck because eldar are faster than humans (even SM humans) [/INDENT]
googlemooglemaximus do you have an obssesion with smily death or somthing
good point googlemooglemaximus (and they say people cant spell MY name!). Also, the DoW wasnt fluffy - World Eaters with chaos sorcerers? WTF mate? oh and mega squirrel killer - your new, so you dont know googlemooglemaximus (there, i can say it now - phew)
it just annoys me so much that DOW is so unfluffy and that nobody seems to care. the different color schemes were a good isea but stops you from theming your army. i want an eldar swordwind (loads of aspect warriors) army but you cant do it. in DC i hope that customization is not just a rumour
If they let you use the options of each color schemes than my Iron Warriors will get a Basilisk and a Vindacator and more preds. and more obliterators than other armies, right?
Nobody cares because they dont care. Dawn of war is never going to be fluffy ever. If it is so horrible dont play it.
