Hi can someone do me a favor and write down what the exorcist list is I’m having a hard time making it out

loved the game as usual! It was fun to see an Ynari game which wasn’t over the top powerful and it was interesting to see both of your learning curves during the game as well. One thing I am thinking over though, when the centurions split fired for the first time and killed a unit, you did the soul burst immediately, as the rules say you can. I think that you looked at the wording wrong though, as shooting at two targets when split firing also happens at the same time, according to the rules. The reason this is important… Read more »

It’s not the power of the Ynnari soul storm that’s as bad as the disruption of the other player’s turn. Firstly, it adds to what is already becoming a very long game, time wise. Secondly, it removes the agency of the player’s turn. It’s bad enough standing back and watching your opponent play out their entire turn, it’s so much worse when they take over your turn as well! But as we’ve seen that the last codex of an edition is usually written with the next edition already in mind, I’m curious which direction 8th edition will take us. PS.… Read more »

This was a cool battle report!
Do you think mass Eldar foot sloggers with soulburst could be a list?

Actually, James won that game. The Avatar of Ynnead special rule only activates when Aeldari models within 7″ die and not any model, so it wouldn’t have regained the lost wound when the Eviscerator died and when the Grav took 4 wounds off it it would have died, giving James a 9-6 victory. Then again, I agree with Daniel Haack’s comment, I would have turbo boosted the Scatbikes into the corner with the Grav Cents when Soulbursting to shoot them up in your turn and reduce their firepower and give the remaining Cents two options, Bikes or the Yncarn. Though… Read more »

Tactics question 🙂 The situation I am curious about is when the avatar killed that last assault marine and you soulbursted the two scatt packs, you chose to fire at the drop pod. Now the soulburst happened in the opponents turn so I am wondering if you could have used the soulburst to turboboost over to either his centurions or tac squad and then shoot them up in your turn? If you chose the tac squad it was his last ob sec unit. Was it because you wanted to stay near the two objectives on that side of the board?… Read more »

Wow, that’s the first time I’ve seen Soulburst in action…

Now I understand the dismay at it.

Though I think AP3 large blast barrages could also mess with it. Could Soulburst push Basilisk squadrons back into the game? Probably not, no… :p

Great job as ever guys! 🙂

Great game as usual guys. Can’t wait to see the old Ghosts back on the channel. Scatt packs get a bit boring to watch and much preferred the older lists with wave serpents and dire avengers. Not sure what they were thinking with windriders. Guardians save jumps up by 2, and they can take unlimited special weapons????

Hopefully the meta can shift with 8th and the rewards for fluffy armies. Themeaticaly it seems more realistic that standard troops make a the majority of a force and not just a selection of alpha units.
