List Review

Matty Woodz:

Just wanted input on this list. Kind of wanted it to be a TAC Eldar list.

I plan on putting the archon with the webway portal with the Wraithguard.

Thanks!

      I have achieved a state of Zen, Geoofery, wherein I do not feel the need to rant about things any longer.

      Ooommmmmmm

        Make it the geek rant section, where you rant about stupid geek stuff.

    • Deuce11 May 29, 2015 12:47 pm #

      Film your own “Grinds My Gears” type segment

        That would be cool, and as long as it is funny and not bitter, it’s all good, lol

    That looks to be a nasty and scary Eldar list. I assume Flamers on the Wraithguard? If s, would it be better to take that Venom as a Fast Attack so the Wraithguard and the Archon can jump in and DS it? Flamers out of an Open Topped vehicle are much better than just clumped up. I guess if they’re just the regular D guns, then it doesn’t matter too much.

    Other than that it’s pretty nice. Great shooting, though a heavy Assault army that can weather the fire might run roughshod over what’s left.

    Would it be possible to get a list of my own critiqued? I’ve got an event in a couple weeks and am working on what I’m bringing.

      Wraithguard are bulky though, so they don’t fit in a Venom. Raider, yes, but can’t fit another character. That trick only works in a Wave Serpent.

      Shoot your list to: Contact@FrontlineGaming.org to have it critiqued on the show!

        Oh, I dunno much about DE vehicles, I just knew you could DS it with the WWP and that it was open topped, didn’t know about the Transport size.

        I’ll work on mine a bit and see what you guys think, thanks!

    Your clicking is still happening with the old mics. It sounds like you may be peaking out on the meters. If there is a trim knob, drop a couple dB on your pre-amp. Or, low tech it and back the mics off from your mouths. It happens more with Reece than Frankie which leads me to believe that it has to do with vocal power/overall sound input.

    If you guys know a sound guy, bring him in to help you out for a bit.

    • Rich (Novus) with GSI May 29, 2015 6:26 pm #

      BTW, it will likely happen more with good mics. That’s why the old ones may sound better, they just don’t respond as well as the good ones.

    Thanks for reviewing my list guys! Those Dark Eldar models plus one other squad of warriors and a Venom are the only Dark Eldar Models i own, so looks like i need to invest in a raider!
