Strengths of weapons, holofield and double movement are available to all Eldar ships. Besides I really cant see how pirate groups can grow battleships but the big craftworlds cannot, it makes no sense. Of all the biological races, the Eldar are the oldest still interactive with the younger races such as humans, orks, and tau.

Crimson Fists Rules Leaked. The last ship available in the Corsair Eldar list is the Void Stalker battleship. The next cruiser is the Shadow for points with 6 hits points, 4 torpedoes and 12 batteries.

Also, I ‘hate’ fighting them more. Apr 21, Well looks is subjective, I personally find the pirate fleets look better.

While Eldar batteries are indeed great and 5 of them are even better, for 65 points they are a tad expensive. The fifth weakness of the Eldar is that holofields are not shields, thus when any Eldar ships move through blast markers once per move whether in its own movement phase or its own ordnance phase it can suffer a damage on a roll of 6 their movement is also reduced by 5 cm.

BFG: Craftworld Eldar Dragon Ship

Craftwoorld ships such as the Dragonship, Wraithship or other potentially new ships, surely this could bolster the Bcg limited roster of ships, or even create a new fleet entirely. Thus far all craftaorld cruisers are better replaced by escorts. Post was not sent – check fbg email addresses!

I think I’ll go with the Craftworld Eldar- I like the look of the wraithships, and I can use the flame of Asuryan as my flagship with a different name, of course.


Shadow Cruiser by Arithon. Search anything and hit enter. Frankly they need not have bothered. While most cruisers can sustain more damage prior to reduction of its offensive capability than a squadron of escorts, Corsair Eldar capital ship vulnerability to critical damage erase this edge in my opinion.

Both the Solaris and Aurora are Forgeworld models and as an American, this means both will cost more money wise as well. I think I may go back and rewash the spacefleet wraithships now just to bring the fleet together a bit more. I know the corsairs in-game currently have craftworld favours, but what if we could have dlc to add on to the Eldar fleet.

Against battery weapons a rightward shift on the Battery Gunnery table less favorable for the shooter. They’d also offer a great opportunity for a price-intense dlc with their own campaign crafttworld instance, first u’ll have to pirate through the sector, then realise your craftworld is threatened as well if the imperial sector falls, thus joining your forces with them and so on.

Next up is the Eeldar, a battery ship. On the defense Eldar ships are protected by holofields. The cheapest Eldar cruiser is the Solaris, coming with 8 batteries to the front and 4 hits points for points. Notify craftwolrd of new posts via email.

Eldar batteries always count their target as closing the most favorable aspect for targets.

Such analysis of strengths and weaknesses will likely result in Eldar fleets being a predominantly escorts based fleet. Eldar torpedoes and batteries are both great and for just 40 points this is another great option.

I also like the concept of the ghostship. Unfortunately, while the package of lance, torpedoes, and battery looks impressive, for 75 points it is too pricy. Corsair Eldar is likely the one most likely to be encountered in space by merchants craftword patrols alike and equally likely to be the last encounters by these ships as well. The pirate fleet is better balanced and has more variety.

I have some models of both eldar fleets, but i was wondering which to collect a full fleet of, pirates or Craftworld.

Craftworld- and Dark Eldar! – Battlefleet Gothic: Armada

I have been getting a bit of painting in elar should have some more exciting sutff ready for you soon. Even so the average can be bcg because a lance can actually inflict three hits each! For the exact same points you can get 2 Nightshades and 2 Aconites, yielding the exact same weapon layouts with 4 hits points across 4 targets. What sould i collect?

The last cruiser is the Eclipse for points. All fleets should be built to maximize its strength and minimize its weaknesses. For the same points you can get 2 Aconites with 10 batteries elfar 2 hits points splitting fire between two Aconites. On both the offensive and defensive components of the game, Corsair Eldars are strong, very strong. Similarly priced at points would be 2 Hellebores that are over priced in themselves so I am not sure the Aurora is worth taking either.
