The Shadow Spectres are members of a recently-rediscovered Eldar Warrior Aspect. This shrine specializes in the deployment of stealthy, highly-mobile heavy. Alaitoc would be -2 to hit, good movement, decent guns. Why not?. So I’ve been tempted by the Shadow Spectres mainly due to the models being cool.

Also, is the Exarch upgrade or Irrilyth worth it? A fairly new aspect but one on the rise.


Fire Dragon armor is painted in fiery colors, such as red or orange. Still reeling from the near-destruction of the Eldar race during the Fall, Irillyth vowed not to allow any more of his kind to be wiped out, and he set out to find the threatened Craftworld and prepare it for the battles that lay ahead of them.

They are good all-round troops.

Welcome to Reddit, the front page of the internet. You’re taking these for the prism rifles. S Goto ‘s contentious book Eldar Prophecy presented Lhykosidae, whose armour materialised spontaneously at the Warp Spiders’ shrine during a time of crisis when he was most needed, rather than being a suit of armour that gets passed from bearer to bearer, adding personalities to the sentience within the suit.

Shadow Spectres

With Psyker support, they’re definitely quite handy, and their Exarch is one hell of a brutal and killy melee beatstick. Furthermore, the entire Eldar book and indeed the meta as a whole really isn’t lacking for AP3 killing capacity, thus further ensuring that the primary role Banshees will fill is that of shelf decoration—a cruel fate for one of the most iconic Eldar units that is seen in virtually all media involving them and is one of the first things that comes to mind when the Eldar are brought up.

Because they’re Forge World BS. The sldar goes that Khaine once battled the Nightbringer and wounded him. He spoke of his original vision and of the terrible fate that awaited the people of Mymeara, but he provided the frightened Eldar the ledar of preventing such a terrible outcome if he launched a preemptive assault upon their enemy before they became unstoppable.


The Shadow Spectres are a recently re-discovered group of Eldar Aspect Warriors who specialise in the deployment of highly-mobile, infantry-based anti-armour firepower who are experts at striking at enemy vehicles from concealment and extreme long-range.

They have the fly keyword as well now, so fall back and shoot.

At this rate, it’ll actually be the forty second millennium before GW realizes that a Space Marine’s toughness score is just as much a part of their defence as their armour save and that S3 power weapons are exceedingly mediocre at killing Marines without a lot of wounds to throw around.

Want to add to the discussion?

The speed and agility this gives the Swooping Hawks more than makes up for the fact that their Aspect Armour, compared to that worn by other Shrines, is thinner and offers less protection. Denying psykick powers since I’d really say we only have a handful of “bad” datasheets: Versus Tyranids 2 games total: Shining Spears can be distinguished from all of the other Eldar Warrior Aspects for they are the only Aspect Warriors to make use of anti-gravity Jetbikes.

Sadly GW’s promise of fixing their broken rules has itself been broken. From Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum.

A Banshee Exarch may wield twin powerblades, a power sword and boomerang, or a badass Executioner, which is basically an Eldar power naginata. I just think shining spears look So Lame. Unfortunately, the 7th edition codex has enshrined Warp Spiders as shxdow Eldar solution to Jetpack Infantry, which is clearly spectrs Forge World invented these guys.

But you might still be left wondering if your points aren’t better spent on Striking Scorpions or Wraithblades. They have an uncanny knack of knowing when to follow this onslaught with a lightning-fast assault and when to carefully draw the enemy forward onto their blades.

The Shadow Spectres make use of a unique, complex targeting matrix known as the Ghostlight.

Because Eldar chainswords trigger only after making contact with the target. Spectre are definetly good but have been out of stock for a while though I think FW just made some more though no Exarch yet.

Searching the pathways of the Webway for decades for his lost brethren, he imparted his skills to other Craftworlds as he travelled, but the location of Mymeara continued to remain elusive.


Compared to their closest cousins and fellow hoes, the Howling Banshees, Striking Scorpions are not as swift but instead more adept at moving through dense terrain, using every available nook and crevice to lie zhadow wait of the enemy before unleashing their attack.

Only time I’d consider running them would be in a fear bomb list with Irillyth.

During this time, the legends of the Phoenix Lords also tell of the many eldr battles Irillyth fought against the creatures of Slaanesh that had infiltrated the great Eldar Labyrinthine Dimension. They’re forgeworld, so in many places you need your opponent’s or TO shadpw to run it at all. Soon the Shadow Spectre Eladr Shrines were deserted, becoming dark, haunted places in the Craftworlds shunned by most Eldar. If I do, I can generally pull off the Exarch leadership rule as well. Exarchs are highly experienced warriors who are capable of judging the best opportunities for the squad to withdraw, regroup, and take up a new firing position that will enhance their combat effectiveness against enemy armour.

If you’re autarch is hanging in back, it’s best to just take an autarch on foot and save the points. Eventually the day came when the Phoenix Lord spoke to Mymeara’s Council of Seers to reveal his true purpose for coming to their Craftworld.
