I need you opinion about my first two squads, these are for single missions because I don't have anyone to play with. My friend I play with lives in other town and we can play maybe once a month.
So, primary for single missions

IG (Cadian):
Captain --> Boltgun, Flak armour = 81 pts
Liutenant x2 --> Lasgun = 142 pts
Sergenat x2 --> Shotgun = 122 pts
HWS grenade --> Grenade launcher, frag = 59 pts
HWS flamer --> Flamer = 63 pts
Infantryman x 6 --> autogun = 282 pts

SUM: 749 pts


Eldar:
Dire avenger exarch
- sacred armour, sword, shuriken pistol - 113

Dire avenger aspect warrior
- shuriken pistol, sword - 99

Howling banshee warr asp.
- sword, shuriken pistol, banshee mask - 115

Striking scorpion warr.asp.
- chain sword, shuriken pistol - 100

Exodites x2
- lasguns - 134

Guardian x3
- shuriken cannon - 187

SUM - 748

Of course, I am one of those who like to play WYSIWYG Smile

I still have a box of Kroots I have to make a squad of and some orks, who are already painted but I need to convert them to squad, to calculate points.

Both look like solid squads to start with. The Guardians have catapults right?

Even on a single game - I'd probably max out on officers (but that's just me)

Laney Very Happy

Sharukien Catapults are not avaliable options for starting recruits.

TLRB Vol.3 Pg 6
Quote :
During the initial Squad Setup (before starting the campaign), Recuits cannot be given any Rare Items neither from common stash nor by any officer.

Sharukien Catapults are Rare 5


My suggestion is drop all the guardians and max out your officers and buy another Ranger or two and put lasguns on those. Especially if it's just a single game this gives all your recruits infiltrate.

(note Ranger we changed it in 0.6.0 from exodite)

Also the chainsword is Rare 7 in the eldar depot.

Officers are only allowed to take up to Rare 5 at squad setup.

Also from pg6 of Vol 3
Quote :
"Officers and Recuits may buy any weapon,armor or wargear availiable on their squads depot. You may buy Rare Items that have a rarity value of 5 or less when stating a squad."
(yes I notice that it says recruits there also which I'm going to post in the developer room to fix)

You may wanna check your guard's rarity too. I don't know the squad well enough to tell you offhand, and im too lazy too look it up after retyping all that up there.

@Dysturbed,
hmm, I didn't noticed that part of not giving rare 5 to recruits, damn!
I was trying to make a squad correspondig to wh40k background, after all they're dieing race and they would not send a guardians to the battle only with pistols.

For the chain sword, ok, agree, I'll change that Smile but for a guardians, hmm, I will see, as said, it's only single games so...I'll leave it that way but for a campaign I'll use squad stricly by the book Smile

As for exodites, I agree, infiltrate from the begining but, maybe that's just me, I like to play game, not to win it imediatly Wink
And, of course, I don't have rangers and, for now, it's to much work to convert 5 rangers, for 2 I can find time Very Happy

@laney,
As said, I tried to make a squad by the wh40k background and death squads rules Smile
Guardians are only for cover fire, officers are main attack force Smile
Damn, I like that shuriken weapons Wink

btw. thank you for helping me Smile and for a great game Very Happy

No problem man. You know you don't have to convert the mini's just to play.
Hell i used the green army men that a buddy of mines kids where going to throw away. He had green ones and brown ones. I used the brown ones for officers and the green ones for recruits. Just had to keep track of which was which. course being they wheren't based it kinda made measuring a thing of a pain in the ass.

But none the less if you don't have something get creative!

Smile I understand that Smile but, I'm primary in this because of hobby Smile I was thinking few times to start an army but...the problem was I like a miniatures of different armies Smile
I got 12 or so painted eldar guardians, a box of unpainted dire avengers and lots of bits so, for me, is logical move to make an WYSIWYG squad, as I said, hobbyst Smile

I would probably already play few battles but my friend, with whom I play Space Hulk, is in different city and, becouse of his job - he is a protestant pastor, we can't play often.
People in my town are not interested in anything, especialy miniature wargaming, and, sometime, I think that they're not even interested in living Smile

Hehe, when I was a kid, some 20 years ago, we played wargames with a 1/72 soldiers and various custom terrains Smile matchboxes, glasses, stones from the garden Very Happy
DAmn, those were the days Smile looks that, our kind of people, just refuse to grow old Very Happy

btw. here is a link on my gallery on facebook, hope that noone's gonna hack my profile Just Kidding

Even if you play only a single game a month, I'd still go for a campaign set-up. Heck, I think I barely make two games a month.

Nice paint jobs. I would agree with Arachas, do a campaign. I only play about 1 game every other month. It is a campaign, a slow going one, but fun watching the squad evolve.
