Its been a nice weekend and I've managed to get a game in with me gaming buddies. It was really awesome seeing the guys again :) It was a 3 way battle. I played my Necrons and the Space Wolves and Blood Angels also took to the battlefield.
I'm inspired to play more Xenos races of late and have taken to revamp my Iyanden Eldar Wraithguard. I still like the bright yellow and dark blues of my previous paintjob. But I'm deciding to go for a more organic feel to the Wraithguard in celebration of 6th Edition ;)
I usually use only 10 Wraithguard with a Seer sporting the Enhance power. They would be my objective holder. Their high toughness and good save makes them hard to shift. Together with Fortune from the Farseer, they are quite durable. Their lack of Invulnerable Save can be overcome by the new Psychic Powers from the Divination discipline..I think. Its the one that can give a unit a 4+ invuln.
I usually use them as the anvil to break my opponent's attackers and they also act as a bullet magnet. I would usually have some long range shooting with Warwalkers and Wraithlords. The counter assault units like Striking Scorpions would help out the Wraithguards in protracted combats.
The Overwatch rules are helpful and give their AP 2 guns a tiny bit more punch to would be assailants.
Looking forward to getting more games in 6th!
Have a great week ahead everyone! Press on and game on.
