Friendly Adepticon 2015

So the Havocs are going to make their way to Adepticon again this year and much like the Law this will be my first (Despite actually being from Chicago)! So I have been trying to get a better handle on the 7th edition rules as well as how my Eldar work in this edition. Personally I don't think much has changed with the exception of the psychic phase, which totally has it's ups and downs, but this post isn't a commentary on that, so here is what I have tried out with some success (comments and criticisms are welcome!):

Spiritseer- 70

Wraithguard x 5 d-scythes -345
-waverserpent with twin linked bright lances and holofields

Wraithguard x 5- 295
-Waverserpent with twin linked star cannons and holofields

Dire Avenger x 10- 160
-Exarch with shimmer shield


Crimson Hunter- 180
-Exarch two bright lances and a pulse laser


Wraith Knight- 300
-Suncannon and Scattershield with a scatter laser

Dark Reapers x 4- 150
-Exarch with star shot missiles

That's what I have so far and I tested it out twice and both times the wraithknight was anything but friendly. I talked the wraithknight issue over with the rest of the Havocs and they agreed as long as I didn't run more than one it should be ok, and that the tournament was more about the attitude than anything else.  The Spiritseer was fairly lackluster, he had some awesome spells to cast, but because he had a very limited number of dice the spells were being countered by Dan almost every turn (despite not having any psykers, most gifted psykers in the galaxy my ass) nullified my spells. So I might dump the dark reaper exarch and instead take a farseer, but the exarch along with the rest of the dark reapers are pretty brutal especially against marines. I think the hard balance is wanting to win, but not making a super competitive army list that isn't fun against. So tell me what you guys think!


  1. I would take any option other than star cannons on the second wave serpent. Otherwise it looks pretty good for friendly stuff and has a nice wraith theme. You may want to look at using the Iyanden codex. That could be fun.

  2. I think that the normal codex is better for a fun list since it makes your warlord easier to kill. I think that 1 wraithknight would be ok as well. Overall it looks to be a friendly list. Pesonally I would have went with a hemlock fighter and some wraith blades instead of the dires and reapers. That way it is a fun and themed list Go go team ghost squad! but I am silly like that (plus I am dreaming of that army)

  3. Thanks for the input! I thought about getting wraithblades, but I don't really know how I feel about them since assault is iffy these days, A hemlock would be nice especially against low leadership armies. I'll take a look at the Iyanden codex and see what it has!
