Remember that you still need to to take the following units in a separate Detachment should you wish to use them: The embrace came second overall. This makes it one of the few units able to deep strike easily within charging range to wreak some melee havoc although it can’t charge when it Deep Strikes and can give it a terrifying threat radius.
They must now be pure Craftworlds, Drukhari or Harlequins detachments only.
Warhammer 40,/Tactics/Eldar Harlequins(8E) – 1d4chan
Only available to Yvraine and the Yncarne, these powers allow them to play both a supportive and offensive role for your army. It’s no longer a terrible unit, but it faces some pretty stiff competition in an elite army. This is the current Edition’s Eldar Harlequins tactics.
She’s as fast corex your clowns so no problems keeping up, and with inevitable death the fact that she can’t board your transports becomes a non issue. While the 8″ of movement it has may not seem particularly fast, the Yncarne also has the unique ability to teleport to the location where any squad friend or foe is killed, so long as it is at least 1″ away from enemy units. You can freely mix and match within a single unit – no target exists for which this is better than a loadout designed for that target, so this is inferior to specializing your units and sending them against the targets they’re good against, but on the other hand, a mixed unit of Embraces and Caresses will do reasonably well against whatever your opponent throws at you.
In addition to her impressive powers, Yvraine also has several abilities that make her surprisingly survivable. It lets you Advance in the Movement Phase while still being allowed to Charge just like the formation bonus of the same name from 7th but starting Turn 1which is extremely useful already. Now actually a better combatant than Yvraine.
As with any Ynnari Psyker, she can use Strength From Death to cast a Psychic Power, the most useful of which will probably be Word of the Phoenix, assuming you haven’t cast it already, as this lets her “pass” the Soulburst trigger to anything you like, even codrx your opponent has been avoiding letting something react.
GW has to sell that box set Har,equins guess.
Warhammer 40,000/Tactics/Eldar Harlequins(8E)
Where as she’s an excellent support character with her psychic powers and fits rather naturally in a Craftworld or Dark Eldar Ynnari detachment she finds a bit of friction cocex a solely Harlequin Ynnari army. They’re extremely fast, surprisingly difficult to kill with proper support, and hit incredibly hard in Assault, quickly chewing through MEQs with mass high-strength, decent AP attacks.
In 8th, though, you lose the benefit of Rising Crescendo, an extremely useful tool for securing charges and performing counter-charges. His sword hits harder than the kiss and has ccodex leadership debuff and at A 5 6 with the relevant warlord trait if you took him as your WL you insane bastard something is gonna feel the hurt but he lacks the reroll to wound harlequiins your Troupe Master has which hurts a bit, harlequibs this still hits rather hard, is scary to characters, elites, and can put the hurt on hordes.
Possibly out and out the best of the three for a Harlequin Ynnari detachment if only going for the one with the main argument for the other two being price alone, but this girl is worth every single point on her own. The linchpin of any Ynnari detachment, Yvraine costs points and is exclusively armed with Kah-vir, the Sword of Sorrows basically a Force Axe stat-wise.
The following is very true if you’re harlequine sensible and only taking the one Ynnari detachment, but if you do go for a full three Ynnari detachments you crazy sod you then you have to take him, and there aren’t many ways he can be useful since he’s not a strong supportive choice like Yvraine or codx absolute murder the Yncarne can be.
Know what you’re likely to be facing and build your Harlequins accordingly. She also lacks the speed of your dudes unlike the Shadowseer who’s powers are more suited for supporting your dudes, the Shadowseer also has a stratagem to reposition her anywhere on the field if needed and you have your fight twice stratagem of you REALLY need to make sure somethings dead or don’t want to use that Soul Burst action.
You have been bringing those absurdly cheap Warlocks hadlequins accompany her, right? Warhammer Tactics 8E Warhammer Tactics.
Put Kisses on models who will be character killing and leave it at that, though it now is actually a situational alternative to the Embrace and Caress. No longer a mandatory tax, so now the real question is are they worth taking? All in all she’s good but the above might mesh better with your clowns.
This page was last modified on 26 Decemberat The kiss was never the best weapon in any scenario, even against multi-wound terminators. In 7th, taking Harlequins as Ynnari was almost flat-out better, as you lost nothing to gain Strength from Death.
Note that you lose this rule if you field Harlequins in a Ynnari force. Views Cidex Edit View history. Look at your list, figure out what your plan for it is, then decide if you think it’ll benefit more from Xodex Crescendo and Masque Form abilities or Strength from Death. Point for point, the blade was best against wyches, and the embrace was best against kabalites, but other than that the caress is most effective AND most cost effective.
While mixed soup lists are over, you can cpdex take these units in separate detachments and remain battle forged. You can no longer take Ynnari detachments with mixed troops due to changes to the Army of the Reborn rule. The Kiss hits at the same strength as the Embrace, but at 2 worse AP and more damage double against anything with 3 or more woundsall for a point more, meaning it works well against harleqjins models with invulnerable saves, which pretty much relegates it to fighting characters.
