Space Elves

Yeah yeah, I know, wtf is up with all the posts all of a sudden. I can't help it, Noorderspel has sparked my fanatacism(sp?) for 40k once more (which is good). For I have purchased the new Codex: Eldar and i'd like to share my thoughts on this..... most interesting tome.

I hear a lot of people say that Eldar have become much more powerfull. I say this is not true. They are just made.... a little easier to build up. I actually dislike some of the stuff they did to it.
The Aspect Warriors for instance:
They are still just about the same, the exarchs have one extra weapon option (with some cool ones at that), but they nerfed some of the weapons too. The biting blade is no longer that sweet character killer, getting another hit with every wound scored, it now ads +1S with each hit scored in stead. Wich is nice since it means you can get your exarch on 4 attacks and a total strength of 8 (AT AN INITIATIVE OF FRIKKIN 6!). But I liked the old one better.
They also reduced the exarch powers to just being upgrades that give your guys a universal special rule from the BBB. (infiltrate, stealth, hit and run, counter attack, etc)

*woop gotta go catch mah bus, talk more tonight or tomorrow, cya -E*
*I'll finish up now, I just need to do something other than this physics homework cause I'm going nuts*

And that means they took out 'crushing blow' and some of those nice and juicy abillities. Though not all is that bad. They just took the "exotic" and turned it into "just another color".

What they DID do is beef the phoenix lords into heaven.
They have better S T I WS BS (well actually everything).
They also sport a nice 2+ save and still have the "fleet of foot".
Imagine that monstrosity speeding towards your lines. It always kills you before you do it to them. their weapons are better, they are fearless and they'll probably save any wounds made against them. And if not? Well they can't be insta killed anyway with their new rules. (Though NEVER EVER pit them against stealers or broodlords, they'll snuff it, I'd guess)

Take Jain Zar:
When she charges she sports a healthy 5 attacks at S7(executioner) at I10(banshee mask) that ignores normal saves with a WS7! That could kill any elephant. So what if you don't kill that fex in one go. It needs three wounds to kill her in the same round since she can't be insta killed!
Or Baharroth: also 4 or 5 A's on charge, power weapon (S4 though), ws7, I6. And if he doesn't get the job done he does a simple hit and run and he's out!
That and he's got an average speed of 21" (charge included)!

And than there's Maugan Ra with his new maugetar, it now sports 4 shots, and it RENDS AND PINS! (AND shuriken canons are now assault!)
I mean WTF!

Sure you pay a whopping 200 or so points, they kick fucking ass!

I'll leave it at that. There should only be one reason for any army to buy it. For the Eldar it's the new wraithlord model. Have you seen what they did with that sweet plastic on gw.uk? MAN i gotta go convert me one of those!

cya,

New Eldar arent too bad. I wouldnt say they are overly powerful, with the minor exception of the Wraithlord (still definitely an issue in terms of going against one, owwie the pain). But i think they did ok for it, especially since they made it so each craftworld could still loosely function on its own without having specific carftworld rules.

I'll have an Eldar army eventually.

damnit TAS..you're affecting me with the 'I wanna get this army thing'.

And I still need to update my blogs.

Yesss, Yessssssssss new army syndrome *le nods* tis good yes yessss.

New Eldar arent too bad at all. Although id be very selective with what i want since I dont like half the aspects. And on that note, why do Warp Spiders not have a Phoenix Lord?

I'm still on page 10..with the fluff. Haven't read any rules yet except the amazing spear thingie ;)

eeeeks.

 
At 11:24 PM, Blogger Erwin said...

Dammit, I'm losing it. Not only is work swamping me (no wonder scientists are excentric) I am also unable to find any hint of system requirements for Supreme Commander, Huxley or C&C3. And i really need to know what kind of processing power I need to get for my new pc. (not to mention the graph card)

damn you vague fuckers!

As is obvious: any help would be very much appreciated, since the price difference between a 1,86 gig dual core and a 3,8 gig dual core is quite something. (though the 3d card difference isnt all that)

damn you developers!

mail them fuckers..or even better CALL them. Don't want to see the telephone bill though ;)
Ah heck..it's lower than it was anyways :D

 
At 6:16 PM, Blogger The Angelus Sanctus said...

Yeah.. Just email them.. they MIGHT reply to you before the end of the year.


This entry hasn't hit chat status, rather disappointing, yessssssssssssss.....

bleh I don't even have the time to make a proper post on mah own blogs :(

 
At 6:29 PM, Blogger Erwin said...

thats cuz you suck!

Anyway, I don't believe you can get this post to chatroom status unless you can get 9 meaningfull.. aw who am I kidding, nine completely meaningless and utterly arbitrary replies on here before saturday morning.

For on saturday morning I'm gonna post wip pics of my new chappie (you know the cyborg-idea-stolen-from-freakforge guy)

anyway, im off, cya

At 4:00 AM, Blogger The Angelus Sanctus said...

So you want 9 completely useless posts before saturday morning for this to hit chatroom status?


Ehh, not the hardest thing to do, definitely an achievable goal and by the end of this lil comment by me, it will only need 8 more comments to go before chatroom status :P

Mwahhahahahahahahaha TEH INSANITY!!

Ok I will never spam like this again, but you were damn well asking for it!!!!

CHATLOG STATUSSSSSSSSS

He's going to update tomorrow afternoon you guys cause he'll be sleeping tomorrow morning.

 
At 3:11 PM, Blogger Erwin said...

dear fucking lord, won't that teach me to never challenge lifeless blogwhores :D

-E

 
At 3:16 PM, Blogger The Angelus Sanctus said...

Hey.. I may be a blog whore, but at least i have style, unlike the major ass spamwhore... Gawd.. You could have at least waited in between comments so folk could post back vs doing 8 odd comments within 2 minutes.

Technically that really isnt chatroom status per-se since its just full of arjan spam crap...


Ehh, i guess that means we have to hit 30 posts for chatroom status (since spamwhore voided it at the 20-count). Oh well, only what, 7 more posts to go? And try to do it properly this time you mofo!!

I totaly lose you people here

 
At 10:07 AM, Anonymous Arjan said...

we once said that to reach 21 comments was somewhat of a 'chat' instead of normal comments.

So if a post has 21 comments..it has reached 'chat log status'.

I could have waited..but Erwin said he didn't expect the post to hit 21 before saturday morning and I didn't have time to wait and make normal comments again in order to get to 21 :D

 
At 11:07 AM, Blogger The Angelus Sanctus said...

Yeah we are weird folk, pay little attetion to that =x


Hrmmm.... Well we still could hit like 31 by the time sunday morning hits =x

At 1:15 PM, Blogger Erwin said...

wow lnedis has been a while since i saw you here.
Hows life, hows the family and hows it going with the christmas volley tournament? (just askin')

At 3:53 PM, Blogger The Angelus Sanctus said...

You have Christmas Volley Ball Tournaments? But isnt it like Winter-ish up that way?


-eTAS

 
At 5:52 PM, Blogger Erwin said...

um....

volleybal doesn't necessarily beackvolleybl.

At 6:51 PM, Blogger The Angelus Sanctus said...

Ahh indoor volleyball..

Bleh indoor volleyball is for wussies....


Ooo, almost at 30 (with more meaningful posts this time around).


-eTAS

 
At 11:25 PM, Anonymous Arjan said...

pfft meaningfull posts are so overrated. And ..your post was nr 30

 
At 5:15 AM, Blogger The Angelus Sanctus said...

True, ok so meaningful posts ARE over-rated but at least they are better than your spamfest, you spamwhore :P


But haha! We hit 32 before Erwin updated. I declare this entry has achieved true chatlog status!!

HUZZAHHHH!!!!

Seee, I knew we could do it the proper way :P

 
At 11:49 AM, Blogger E-bean said...

uhm, about the proc. things...

just a core 2 duo, 2 gigs of memory and some simple graph card.

that'll do the trick.

 
At 3:56 PM, Blogger Erwin said...

EHM...

simple graphics card?
haha, you silly fuck! Not everyone on this dirt ball we call earth is content with playing starcraft the rest of their meaningless lives.

gimme, supreme commander, gimme C&C3! gimme HUXLEY!

At 2:15 PM, Blogger The Angelus Sanctus said...

This is why i got myself a 360 to get over some of the pc woes and technology crap. Sure i still dont have the same flexibility as i would on a pc, but ehh.. I am happy and content *le nods*


-eTAS

 
At 3:47 PM, Anonymous Arjan said...

whoa..is that French :P

yeah...that is one big woe of the pc. But somehow I am just not that good with consoles (hold the lame remark..)

Gimmeh the new games. Although I would like to have had a decent pc version of Call of Duty 3 :(

 
At 12:14 PM, Blogger E-bean said...

omfg, stupid ass little boy.

I don't mean a simple graph card from twenty years ago, I mean a simple one from this day.

7600 GS for example. Trust me, that one can handle those games.
You don't need a 500 dollar graphics card for strategy games.

-E

 
At 4:57 PM, Blogger The Angelus Sanctus said...

I dont even wanna know what crazy scheme you have going on with your Eldar =x

Pics of the Chaplain would be cool.

Bleh just look around for fairly decent graphics card that are a few notches up from the generic stuff they whack in pcs. Hell you could probably find something on ebay =x


-eTAS

 
At 10:11 PM, Blogger E-bean said...

yeah, you don't need that card, that's what I said, so I was right all the way

you can say it.. YES E-BEAN, You are my GOD!

 
At 10:20 PM, Blogger Erwin said...

the emperor is my god! heathen, you will be purged...

 
At 1:51 PM, Blogger The Angelus Sanctus said...

Enjoyed the blog about best buy plasma found it very informative. I found a good website which also features best buy plasma and best buy plasma. The link is great for **uk bargains** including Nintendo Wii, PS2, PS3, games consoles and features famous online stores inc Argos, Marks and Spencer, Empire Direct, LX Direct, Tesco, Next. There is also a chance to play online bingo and try your luck at the online gambling sites available inc roulette, poker and fruit machines. I've also found another site for **free soccer links**. Hope you find these sites interesting - all the best!
