Warhammer 40K Meta Hotness: Harlequins Starweaver!


Harlequins are fairly superb! The Starweaver transport is one cause try to be fearful of the dancing doom from the Webway.

I feel each aggressive participant seems like Harlequins are nonetheless fairly busted recently.  The military is a bit exhausting to play however the energy is extraordinarily excessive with the checklist.  They can do plenty of harm, have superb secondaries, and within the arms of a great participant will simply run circles round you as you attempt to dig them out of all their layers of protections.  Oh they usually shoot fairly dang good too.

Starweaver Basics

Hey it is a Venom that holds a bunch of Harlies that may shoot out of it with a ton of highly effective weapons.  Oh and should you pop them out they’ll kill you in shut fight too.  On prime of that the car is hard as heck as usually it could possibly keep a good bit away and nonetheless be exhausting to hit.  They additionally – rely as stationary after they transfer and advance so that they shoot properly too.  The guys inside don’t – however all these Assault weapons certain love zipping across the tabletop.  Really it’s only a very quick troop transport that’s aggressively costed.

Starweavers are Just SO Fast

So yeah we all know that Eldar stuff is quick however the Harlequins Starweaver is tremendous quick.  It will transfer, advance, and nonetheless seize that goal from you.  At the identical time with simple to finish secondaries they’ll simply outscore you all whereas zipping across the tabletop.  The outdated “parking” lot is again simply with a heck of much more colours and fancy logos on it.

Damage Output

The Starweaver itself isn’t insane it’s all the fashions inside that may simply homicide you.  Fusion pistols and Neuro disruptors are going to trigger you a ton of issues as the military feels prefer it has solutions for every little thing.  You must get shut with plenty of choices to kill one thing?  Zip and zoom you’re over there doing the harm you want.  It is simply so quick and exhausting to cope with them as they’ll rapidly transfer and alter their location of assault simply as quickly as you attempt to interact.

Sample List

Mike Porter gained the Conventry 3 day GT with the next checklist this previous weekend.  It runs all of the boats and simply – zips across the board inflicting you troubles.  Everyone can shoot out of the boats and it’s loaded to the convey with homicide choices on prime of being powerful to kill.  It was a 155 participant, 8 spherical occasion which is a large quantity of video games to wreck store through.  Good job to Mr. Porter for taking clowns to the highest.

Harlequin Starweaver Final Thoughts

I might love these guys to get one other hit to stability them out a bit. But almost certainly the hope is tenth Edition would possibly do one thing to even issues out.  They are simply too quick, too lethal, and too exhausting to counter punch after they can simply as rapidly dance away.  It feels a bit just like the outdated Dark Eldar nonsense after they first got here out.  Players tried to punch again however the military had already moved away and stole extra sweet out of your fashions.

Let us know what models you suppose are scorching proper now, down within the feedback!
