Jetbikes and Wraiththings are getting all the attention (and hate) in the new Craftworlds codex, but I have yet to see a decent Mechdar list that takes advantage of empty Wave Serpents. So what can Eldar players do with all their Serpents gathering dust in their display cases?

Here is an 1850 pts Harlequins and Dark Eldar army list in response to this reader request:

"Any recommendations when the meta is heavily armored transports and Eldar D strength weaponry builds?

After two weeks without internet access, I am finally back online. I have quite a backlog of comments and emails to respond to, and then a few new articles to post, including a couple of codex reviews. Stand by for more content very soon!

In other news, whilst I was offline, Elite 40,000 has broken through the 100,000 page view barrier! When I started this blog only nine months ago, I never expected its readership to grow so much, so quickly. And so to all my readers I offer a massive "thank you", and I hope to keep you coming back for more hobby and gaming articles.

Announcement: Back Online, 100k Page Views!
