So the first test of my 500 point Eldar list didn't go quite as planned. I issued a challenge vs an Imperial Guard army consisting of:
Spearhead deployment with 5 objectives. Considering I only had 2 troop choices I was in for a fight! Moreso since a draw went to the defender in our challenge league. I failed to steal initative.
It was readily obvious that I shouldn't have reserved the bikes. My thinking was that the guardsmen would be running towards my side of the board in an attempt to secure the objectives. I also failed to place my rangers out of LoS of his sniper and heavy weapons. These both would have helped my chances had I been more mindful of placement. My opponent 'mobbing up' the guard squad was a very good thing and the vets in that chimera were a good choice to have. There were a LOT of guardsmen on the board for 500 points. All in all a fantastic list and excellent opponent.
