So I played eldar for the first time with Runes of warding and Eldrad with my Grey Knights. I played against a great player named Aaron. I mean who isn't cool that is named Aaron.......
We played capture and control with dawn of war. He won the roll and decided to go first. I elected to roll everything on except my Nemisis dreadnight. I am not giving a battle report, but I learned a few things about how the Grey Knights work with the Runes of Warding on the board: Very cautiously! I was afraid to try my psychic abilities. The 2 times I tried them I passed but also took 1 perils due to double 1's and a 6. I ended up winning the game anyways, but the runes of warding take out a lot of what the Grey Knights count on to make their small numbers multiply in effectiveness. As I continue to play Grey Knights I can see more Eldar players showing up to try and chess mate the Grey Knights.
I also didn't realize until this game that the Avatar is a Daemon and that I wouldn't mind getting in close combat with him now. Of course if the runes of warding model is dead first!
I am also now lobbying the eldar codex to get revised!!!!! LOL
