Monday Night Fight: Grey Knights vs. Eldar

We’ve got another fun game tonight, the Raw Dogger continues to experiment with Grey Knights vs. Reecius’ tried and true Wraith Host Ynnari! Joins us a 5pm PST for the fun on our Twitch Channel.

Reecius’ Wraith Host has been doing quite well. He’s running about 6-1-1 with it so far which is fairly impressive considering this same army would have been all but unplayable in previous editions! How will it fare against the Grey Knights?

The Raw Dog tries out an even more elite version of the Grey Knights, this time featuring many Paladins! Is this force too elite or will it be able to perform up to compete?

    Thanks guys for all your coverage. Any reason no one plays 1000 Sons in the bat reps? Are they that bad? Got my first game on Sunday.

      No, we just don’t have the army, here! We’d love to get them on camera, though.

        Sons are incredibly good looking on the tabletop, if I had more time I would get a 1ksons army myself. The models are awesome.

    Elite vs Elite, interesting game to watch!

    For that Eldar list, do you not have problems getting the Wraithguard across the table without Wave Serpents? They seem to be really slow and short ranged to walk across without getting shot down (not that the GK list is heavy on the ranged aspect of it).

      The Wraithguard are surprisingly quick. Their weapons are Assault so they can advance and shoot, and with Soulburst, they can get fairly speedy.

    Gonna be fun to see. Hopefully it´ll be a nice and even battle.

      Yeah, hope so! Regardless, it will be good fun.

    Two command points seems sub-optimal. That said, Vindicare Assassin!!!

        We actually changed Jason’s list last minute to have 1 detachment and 4 command points.

    Double check your points on the Land Raider, I think you may be 50 short due to only paying for one twin lascannon, and the LR has 2. Or am I reading it wrong?

      Good catch! I fixed it, Jason will be a bit over on points, but no big deal.

        Sorry for the double post!

    Double check your points for the Land Raider, I think you may be 50 short due to having to purchase 2 twin Lascannons, not just one. Or am I reading it wrong?

    Reaver jet bikes heat lances over blasters?

    I would love to hear some thoughts on this.
    Blasters seem better to me in most situations. Especially since blasters are cheaper. But I love heat lances so would love to hear your thoughts

    Can’t wait to see some more GK action! Especially against them tricksy Hobbitses I mean Eldar 😛

    I get that Jason is learning 8th but randomly doing nothing on his T1 and letting you kill his Raven was a bit silly

    Also why was Jason taking 3+ saves on his Paladins vs. shuriken cannons when they have no AP?
