All right clearly it has a sniper theme and they do what they always do, deploy in the best spots, sit back, and shoot. When the enemy comes too close they fleet of foot away hopefully. The Harlequins are a bit trickier, they are mainly for reinforcing the rangers since the only real way to dislodge them is hand to hand but if possible they can attempt a flanking maneuver. The Farseers are character killers plain and simple and lacking that they go after the heavy weapon carriers and in an emergency can use their singing spears against vehicles that get too close. The Vibrocannons just sit behind any hill or forest since their weapons need no line of sight and try to hit any vehicles coming around (as long as they hit they get an automatic glancing hit) and if I am lucky might pin some infantry units on the way there. Anyway tell me what you think.

As the Vibrocannon isn't really dedicated Anit Tank you are definitely lacking in that department.

I'd go WarWalkers for AT and to fit your theme.

there wont be enough cover for all of those rangers.. though i love the theme. i think its an interesting list for sure. maybe keep some of your ranger squads at 5 and beef up those farseers a bit. Doom is helpful with the rangers... however you need to be careful with them as not much else will be moving up the battlefield your farseer might get shot up before a mindwar is in range.

keep tweaking it as the rangers/harlequins really compliment each other.

Spot on. A 3rd Harli in place of the twin 7 Elf squads. Redundant bliss.

Well I was originally considering War Walkers but to be honest they are crap. I mean they really do match the theme well and would look awesome with camo netting but armor value 10! on a 85-100 point mini! Their guns can't out range any other armor and skimmers and deep strike would rape them. If you have any suggestions on how to use them effectively I'd love to hear it cause I really like the model and it would fit the theme. Replacing a couple snipers with a couple harlies I can definately do seeing as they are surprisingly good at foot slogging and NOT dying. But you really think the vibrocannons are so weak? I mean 2-3 automatic glancing hits a turn imo is pretty impressive especially since I really need nothing other than for the vehicle to be within 36 inches of my cannon (no LOS!!!!). I could go total lame and take a falcon or three and stuff the harlies inside but I actually want to play people Razz Oh and possibly replacing a farseer with a autarch to support the harlies bad idea or no?

The vibro cannons aren't completely horrible, but I think a few walkers would be better, 4 or more if you can fit them. Set them up behind cover, walk them out and shoot when needed. Just make sure to prioritize targets as you will lose the walkers quickly. Work on threats to them then mob up other things.

I first commend you on your efforts. an Aliatoc army is what i was going for at first but i ended up making a great deal of compromises. However for your list i agree with the others, war walkers are fluffy and you would be really suprised at how well they survive, or at least i was. The only other thing is that, speaking from experience your rangers will be largly at the mercy of cover, so be careful and duck often.

oh its a nice fire base... but those rangers won't be able to kill in numbers only in strength. Just saying.. a decent horde army will DESTROY this list. Nothing kills harlies faster than numbers. maybe grab yourself some Scorps for horde defense... or possibly put EMLs on some WWs.
