I have 5. I was bidding on several at once on ebay. Then got impatient and bought some. I have 2 Falcons, and 2 Fire Prisms.

Will I ever use 6 Serpents?

Should I ebay it out and pick up something else?

I have 34 DA, 20 Guardians, 10 HB, 10 SScorp, 12 Grdn Jetbikes, 3 WWalkers, 3 Vypers, 6 Warlocks, and 10 Warp Spiders.

Will I ever use the thing?

6 serpents can happen at 2k points. It's a little rare now.

I'd keep'em, unload the falcons. I always wish for a couple more Serpents in 2k (I have 3.)

Depends if you want to see the look on your opponent's face when you put them on the table or not. An old Epic Eldar army with two Wave Serpent squadrons hanging around blasting everything and generally making a mess of your troop lines was always a testing opponent.

That and Apocalypse, of course.

I use 6 Wave Serpents at 1500p with 1 Autarch and a Reserve Denial Tactic; it works pretty good. Maybe you need some Fire Dragons.

Could you post an example of your list? Sounds fun :).

I think you might if you're going full mech. I use 5 at 1500 and 6 at 1750+. 6 Skimmers are very intimidating and a lot of fun:D

I use 5 serpents in my 1850 tournament list. If I wasnt tired of painting them (I HATE painting the bottoms) Id probably purchase two more. Six is completely reasonable.

Set 'em up up for different options so you have some flexibility when choosing your army list.

3 with twin-catapultss and 3 with cannon for example.

Or just don't glue anything so you can pull them off and put them back together :D

5 is probably the most you will ever use under 2K.

I mean 3 troop choices, some dragons and an assault unit etc.

But it cant hurt to have 6, I have 5 myself and found that to be adequate.

I use 4 quite regularly at 1500 pt games, and thats with a very sub-optimal lists (full sized aspect warrior squads with all the bells and whistles)

It sounds like you have the army I was thinking of building. :)

I use 4 in my 1250 pts list as fully meched up Eldar. I plan to use between 5 and 6 in 2000 pts using the same backbone as my 1250 pts list, I don't see as too high. Higher than that though would be more strictly for apocalypse purpose though imho.

2x Autarch
3x 5 Fire Dragons
4x 5 Dire Avengers
7x Wave Serpent
3x Fire Prism
1750 points.

You'll need another Wave Serpent. ;)
