Craftworlds – Alaitoc List 1850 points

The rush of 8th edition codex books has been impressive. While I patiently wait for the Space Wolves book to drop, the most recent release, Craftworld Eldar, looks so cool, I picked up at the book, dusted my Eldar off and drafted a list.

As Alaitoc appears to be really good, thinks to their Fieldcraft craftworld trait, and I always thought of Alaitoc as one of the cooler craftworlds anyhow (sorry, Iyanden-yellow just doesn’t do it for me), that’s what I went with.

There are three HQs, three troops and three heavy support options. This allows me to field the army as a Battalion and a Spearhead detachment, for a total of 7 CPs.

The Autarch uses the old Index-datasheet, since the Autarch with Warp Jump Generator does (sadly) not appear in the Codex, though this allows me to keep an Autarch with a Missile Launcher (another lost “legacy-option”).

Beyond that, it is clearly a shooting army that wants to stay more than 12″ away from the enemy to make the best use of Fieldcraft. Flyers and Rangers obviously benefit twice from this and Dark Reapers are just very, very, very good.

Let me know what you think!
