List Review


I need some assistance from you gentlemen (and Frankie).  My primary army is Tyranids but I’ve loved the Eldar for as long as I’ve played, specifically anything tied to their Wraith Constructs.

Over the years I’ve constructed a color scheme, basing scheme, background story and several models to creating a immersive army that I was proud of.  I went as far as having custom sculpting done on my Spirit Seer.

I know, I know, they are what they are, my challenge is that I want to play a Wraith Construct list without my group feeling like they are banging their heads on a brick wall.

So, please help me construct a Wrath Construct list that won’t make my friends want to smash the models.  I want to limit it to that theme, a single Wraith Knight is fine (as my group does play with super heavies).

The theme is a group of Eldar have been corrupted by visions of the End (of) Times and have been stealing the souls of Eldar from craftworlds and putting them into Wraith Constructs.  They even have a cult following of Eldar who actually go into battle hoping to die so they can be placed in one (they paint their armor bone white to show that they are already dead).

Sorry, my group is a very theme oriented group so we like building a lot of fiction for our armies.

Thank you for the help.

    Rules for the Chaos Knight can’t come quickly enough.

    Which means we won’t see them til sometime next year :\

    • Hotsauceman1 May 18, 2015 9:50 am

      I’m still waiting for rules for my rvarna.

      That thing is out of control, lol

    In my happy dream world I have enough money and time to buy and paint that Warlord Titan.

    Also in this dream world events are ran at 2750+ pts.

    • Hotsauceman1 May 18, 2015 12:06 pm

      Just do what I’m doing, legos

      • Warmaster_GIR May 18, 2015 12:51 pm

        That’s a lot of Legos

        • FTGT Evan May 19, 2015 9:03 am

          Warlord Titan might be cheaper.

  4. Thomas May 18, 2015 11:07 am

    Did you see the conversion kit for the Lord of Skulls? Awesome walker build. Hopefully they change the rules a bit and drop the points below 500 at least. The current Lord of Skulls is just impossible to field in a normal points level.

    • Reecius
      Reecius May 18, 2015 12:26 pm

      Yeah, it is pretty expensive.

    • TinBane May 18, 2015 3:44 pm

      It’s just flat up a bad investment, too. Chaos does pretty well generally in Apoc, with their reavers etc. The lord of skulls is I think, the worst apoc option for chaos, aside from spamming chaos marines 😛

      • AbusePuppy May 18, 2015 4:17 pm

        The real problem with it is the same most of the Daemon Engines have- I3 means it gets destroyed by all sorts of things before it gets to actually swing. AV13 and a mediocre amount of HP for its cost don’t help, either.

        • TinBane May 18, 2015 4:25 pm

          GW has a moronic approach to daemon-vehicles.

          They are often low BS, low WS, low I. It’s like “daemons can be awesome super powerful, slow time, awesome duellists. But when they get bound into a vehicle, they are all plague bearers, all doped out on disease.

          Also, they should be monstrous/gargantuan creatures :/ Chaos vehicles that are infested with daemons, should be like, regrowing damaged weapons etc. Like, hitting them in a particular location, doesn’t really effect them that much.

    I can’t wait to run the Goreguard…in casual games. An’ggrath!!!!

    • Reecius
      Reecius May 18, 2015 3:13 pm

      Yeah, that will be awesome!

  6. TinBane May 18, 2015 3:45 pm

    Oh and BTW. Fantastic to see a youtube version of the cast. Twitch’s CDN and options really handicap it, and the fact you can’t use replays on mobile.

  7. Hotsauceman1 May 18, 2015 3:58 pm

    Will the titan be allowed for ITC?

    • AbusePuppy May 18, 2015 4:17 pm

      It costs more points than any tournament I’ve ever seen allows, so probably not a terribly relevant concern. 😛

      • Hotsauceman1 May 18, 2015 4:34 pm

        What if someone decides to run a a 3500pt tournament over a week?

        • abusepuppy May 19, 2015 1:38 pm

          Then they deserve what happens to them.

  8. TinBane May 18, 2015 4:29 pm

    So Reecius, initially, all the warlords looked like this one. Organic, curved surfaces. In the 90s, they redid epic, and made ALL the titans boxy.

    They then back-justified it, by saying that the boxy ones are “lucius pattern” and the curved ones “mars pattern”.

    FW have moved away from Lucius pattern, towards Mars. They’ve removed the Lucius warhound now.

      Reecius May 18, 2015 4:47 pm

      Ah, thank you for the history lesson!

  9. Sunhero May 18, 2015 4:47 pm

    Every cast looks more professional that the last keep it up.

    I think putting up a black photography drape in the back ground it would help with contrast.
    make setting up lighting easier and stop issue’s with shadows.

    • Reecius
      Reecius May 18, 2015 4:48 pm

      Thanks! And yeah, we just got a TV for the background to put up some images of what we’re discussing on the show. Hopefully that helps with the shadows, too.

        be sure to test it with the refresh rate, TV’s can get pretty wonky looking when recorded by another screen

    Thanks for the Shout out guys for our Tourney!

    I know that you guys use koplow dice in your battle reports and I want to get some. What size do you guys use and when will the online store get some back in stock?
