Will Eldar Be Codex Wave Serpent Again – FTN

Eldar will see the table again.  We talk about the Fire Prisms and Wave Serpents this episode and highlight a few more psychic powers and strategems.




First things first… We had an audio issue on this show caused by a software update.  I apologize in advance.  I hope you can still enjoy the show.  If you have trouble getting to the show from work we are also on YouTube. You can find the full show there and short tactic and reaction videos.

We come back to the Eldar codex this episode to talk about some of their power units.  Fire Prisms, Wave Serpents and Falcons are back in a big way and this has a little to do with the sweet Eldar vehicle upgrades.

Being able to easily unlock dedicated transports is a hallmark of this edition, we’ve seen it with the Razorback and we think we’re going to see it with the Wave Serpents.  The vehicle boasts an impressive 13 wounds with not a lot of points.  It also reduces the damage it takes by 1 if it still has the serpent shield active.

The Fire Prism is also fantastic.  It picks up the Leman Russ ability about firing twice and this weapon is awesome!

The Finishing Moves segment is sponsored by Frontline Gaming. Their new mats are now hot off the presses and getting ready to be shipped. Please check them out, even if you already have a game mat. Their new styles are very impressive. If you haven’t already get your tickets NOW for the mega Las Vegas Open.

This segment is about when to paint and when not to maybe paint – what some people leave as ‘non painted surfaces’ on their models.

FTN mostly focuses on Warhammer 40k, but again you will see in the first few episodes we take a severe deep dive into nerdom. These have been a blast to record and I hope they help pass the time for you.

    Answer: no. Literally zero armies built by tournament players with the new codex even uses Wave Serpents.

    • Dalinair

      Interested to know exactly who these tournament players are and what their lists are, considering the wave serpent is considered very good

  • Heinz Fiction

    While the Serpent is still a good transport, it’s probably less mandatory than ever due to certain stratagems…

  • benn grimm

    The more things change eh?

    • zeno666

      So true.
      I heard plasma is the way to go as well…
