Eldar Chunks

Okay, so last week I mentioned breaking up armies into 500 point chunks in order to lessen the preparation time on game night (more detail here). Today, we're going to look at the first army, my Eldar.

Chunk #1 (495 points)
HQ: Farseer (Jetbike, Fortune)
HQ: 5 Warlocks (Jetbikes, Destructor x3, Embolden x1)
Troops: 5 Dire Avengers
Troops: 5 Dire Avengers

Notes: Yeah, I realize this is probably crazy. It's a hammer unit and two minimum-sized troop choices. The problem with my Eldar is that I'm too attached to certain units... like my seer council. I spent so much time working on the conversions that I just can't bring myself to play my Eldar without bringing them along for the ride.



Chunk #2 (505 points)
Troops: 10 Storm Guardians (Warlock, Singing Spear, Fusion Gun x2)
Heavy Support: Falcon (Shuriken Cannon, Holo-fields)
Transport: Wave Serpent (Twin-linked Scatter Lasers)
Transport: Wave Serpent (Twin-linked Scatter Lasers)

Notes: This chunk basically just mechanizes Chunk #1 and adds another scoring unit. One group of dire avengers hops in a wave serpent and the other hops in a Falcon, while the storm guardians ride in the second wave serpent.

Chunk #3 (500 points)
Elite: 5 Fire Dragons
Heavy Support: Fire Prism (Shuriken Cannon)
Heavy Support: Fire Prism (Shuriken Cannon)
Transport: Wave Serpent (Twin-linked Scatter Lasers)

Notes: This chunk adds to the mechanized element of the list and provides much-needed anti-tank.


Next time, we'll take a look at Ork chunks!
