The Aeldari of the Craftworlds (or Asuryani I suppose) are a fast, hard hitting army capable of fulfilling a variety of army styles, with great melee and ranged output alongside good board control and support elements.
A note on Harlequins – whilst they are part of the Aeldari Codex, and can be used within an Asuryani army in some capacity, they have a fair bit of uniqueness and the ability to operate independently. As such, they have their own Tactical Guide HERE, which covers their own rules, interactions and tips.
Hey all…..um this may be a silly question but with War Walkers, Chef, in this fantastic guide here and in your top 5 changes vid you say they get / can use Battle Focus but I can’t see anything in the codex or the interweb that confirms this.
Is it a mistake or am I being silly? 🙂
The 3rd scorpion Exarch power is incorrect. It only affects the Exarch, not the squad.
I’m still confused about the purpose of the Battle focus move. The – 3 over area terrain makes it fairly useless since you can’t reliably hide after shooting (which is a good thing). The problem is that even if you wanted extra movement why wouldn’t you just advance instead since you can use a fate dice/CP reroll if needed, the restrictions stopping you from advancing and battle focusing just makes it so limited.
Thanksfor this, can’t wait for my book in a week to start planning.
I don’t think you get a ’12” bubble of auto-counter charging’ around the webway gate since you need to be within 6″ of both archways when setting up your models, which means you have an area of overlap in the middle of the archway and not much beyond that. So you take two circles, each centred on the innermost parts of an archway and the area where they overlap is the area of deployment. That area is largest when you place the archways closest together.
Well after reading this and watching other videos. I will not be purchasing this codex, it does nothing for the Ynnari but make them worse. Thanks GW!
Great guide, love it.
Chef you beautiful bastard! Thanks for all the hard work, these guides are an amazing resource. Always turn to these when tweaking my lists, keep it up!
