Heya guys i just got done with my 8th ed list and thought i'd run it by you guys

Aeldari list 2k (88)
total points. 2000
HQ
The Yncarne -337
The Visarch -141

Elites
5x incubi -127
1x klaivex w/ demiklaves

6x howling banshees
1x howling banshee exarch 112

6x howling banshees -112
1x howling banshee exarch


heavy Support
7x dark reapers -295
1x dark reaper exarch w/tempest launcher

Fast attack
6x warp spiders -144
1x warp spider exarch w/spinneret rifle
3x windriders w/scatter lasers -105
4x windriders w/scatter lasers -140

Lord of war
Wraithknight w/ Titanic Ghostglaive+ shimmer shield -487

The body count feels low, though thats probably because 1/4th of the list is consumed by the behemoth that is the wraithknight in points now. Not that im complaining with 24 T8 wounds with 3+/5++ Plus a str 16 ap -4 6 wound beast of a sword in close combat. and with the addition of the ability to not be locked in combat, this beast of a model is worth more than ever. we'll see how well he supports the rest of the army. The Yncarne is also a huge point sink, but not nearly as powerful, nor as targetable however, only 9 wounds makes it so the avatar can comfortably hide behind all the banshee's and jetbikes and spiders as they push up the field. Im not sure if i want to keep scatter lasers or switch to shuriken cannons on my bikes. shuriken cannons have a shorter range and less shots HOWEVER, they are also assualt weapons now, which makes them incredibly versitile, if i need to advance and shoot. probably will have to play a game with both and see which i prefer

Missile spam is going to be really effective in this edition. 3 Guaranteed wounds is pretty dang reliable. 3 of your models represent about 1000 point of the force, so i suppose it will come down to whether or not they can put wounds on them but if you can get an angle on an enemy. eliminate its "shileding with lesser fire and then blast away with missiles, it could be a bad day for a Wraith Knight. It takes 8 missile strikes to knock it out, so no small feat, but I think the WraithKNight will be impressive when its shileding works and very detrimental when it doesn't. It would be good to look into the issue of how you can shield the wraithKNight from harm. I assume it uses the same rules as other characters? Can't fire on it unless its closest?

nah the WK is one big target atm. though the aura from the yncarne will help soak wounds. basically gives fnp 6+. which will be helpful. but himeslty i want people to shoot lots at him. frees up my much squisher models from fire. the yncarne thankfully only has 9 wounds, and so cant be targeted so easily

Oh the number of wounds, thats right. Thats the piece I was forgetting. Well i mean... I dont think an enemy army draining its melta/Missile fire into the "tank" is a waste of their efforts so I think the WraithKNight will definitely not want to face that possibility. =)

As a note bikes lost a bit of their power and survivablility, no Jink, 4+ armor, and Scat Lasers are heavy, so if you move you're hitting on 4s.

an alternative without the wraithknight, a ltitle better on the body count, but i also think it lacks the oomph that the wraithknight brings. Let me know what you guys think!
