Inspired by fritz's "way of saim hann" i have decided to start my own blog detailing my tactics, batles and general eldar stuff.
The rune of Biel-tan stands for the principle of reinincarnation, a fate thought to be reserved for every Eldar before the Fall. The name of the craftworld means "rebirth of ancient days".

Eltritch storm tactics
Just thought i'd share with you some eldar tricks i've thought up for eltritch storm. Eltritch storm I find works only really effectively against horde armies in conjunction with doom. According to the codex it "does not require a line of sight" and doesn't scatter (I know there is some debate about this but i've always seen it as not scattering. Any comments or arguments on this welcome.). So, how about this: put a farseer in a wave serpent with the doom and eltritch storm powers (probably more worth it to put another squad in there too, but im not discussing that now). keep on moving the wave serpent towards the enemy until your within 18". At this point doom some juicy squad that you want to hurt and then in the shooting phase eltritch storm them! you stay nice and safe in your wave serpent and get to hit them exactly where you want as it does not scatter. Sure its not as deadly as, say unloading a bladestorm but you can keep on sniping away at them In this anoying way until the time comes to speed of and grab the objectives. Ihave since used this against an IG player, and it worked as intended. Bat-rep of it coming soon.
