View Full Version : Best Eldar Unit vs stompa?

27-06-2010, 03:53
My buddy just got a Stompa and I am a Eldar player, what is the best unit when fighting a stompa?

Revenant Titan, Cobra or Fire Dragons in my opinion.

focused fire prisms

On foot, fire dragons.

How would a Avatar do in battle with a Stompa could it hold its ground?

Assuming you're getting into Apoc units, a Scorpion, Cobra or Revenant. If you don't feel like dropping the several hundred dollars for those, some Fire Prisms squadroned, or a squad of Fire Dragons in a wave serpent should haul it down pretty quickly. Get them inside the power field and tear it up.

If you could somehow get it into combat, and even then, NOT get ID'd by its Titan CCW, maybe.

An Avatar VS. Stompa, the Avatar might be able to do it, especially if you use wailing doom before the assault.

Edit: this is because the avatar strikes before the stompa.

I think the Revenant is great for its points.

wraithguard could be fun too. but there aren't many vehicles that 10 fire dragons can't destroy in 1 turn.

I second that 10 fire dragons in a serpent should do the trick. add guide to ensure destruction.

It has an armour value, therefore it has fire dragon target practice all over it....

They are probably the best anti-armour unit in the game. Certainly for their points (including the serpant!) they are.

Dragons, Council or super heavies.

What about Swooping Hawks with their Haywire Grenades?

I'd say for SH tanks; Cobra or Scorpion. A Pulsar equipped Revenant could do it too.

Then there's the squadroned Fire Prisms. There's the new datasheet in June's white dwarf for 2 prisms and a vyper.

Then the cheapest; 10 Fagons in a Serpent.

For awesomeness, I'd take a Revenant (use a proxy).

Vortex Grenade is useful, esp. with Swooping Hawks (*i think they can take the asset*)

Also, the above things mostly work very well.

And Falcons with the flying formation (name?) which allows 3 BL shots every 2nd turn can be good.

Ten fire dragons or a large bike seer council will shred a stompa into tiny little scraps of metal in a single turn.
