reserves

So I'm at work and can't check the rules... But in my dark Eldar FAQ I can't assault the turn I cone in from reserve via webway portal. This crucks up my list pretty badly... This how reserves work now in general?

Yep, unless it states otherwise, you can't assault the turn you come in from Reserves.

I think a couple Tyranids get around it, but that's about it.

Ugh.... GG to webway lists...
So... If we were playing 6th @ the tournament mark, it would have been a grossly uneven fight... You would have tabled me probably....
Well... Guess I need to buy more raiders, ffs
I really wanted to go with a foot dark Eldar list

On a plus side, Baron dude now grants skilled rider to any unit he joins, like Reavers.

Which only makes the hellions not roll for dangerous tests.... I maybe only lose a hellion to terrain (in 5th) like once out of every 3 games.

Skilled Rider now provides +1 to your Jink save.

Yes.... But unless jump infantry can jink, that part of it does not apply.

I will be bringing more ravers though... They got a heck of a lot sexier.

Ya, they can't.

For jump infantry though, it's important to remember that you can only do *one* of the following per turn.
1) Use your jump pack for a 12" move in the movement phase
or
2) Use your jump pack in the assault phase to re-roll your 2D6" charge distance and earn a Hammer of Wrath I10 S(user) AP- *auto-hit*

That makes Wraiths on a Boat sound a lot more appealing now.

Im not seeing alot of good changes to Eldar (Craftworld or Dark) there goes my 3 wraithlords coming out of a Dark Eldar webway portal turn 2 and assaulting the crap out of everything and scaring the crap out of someone.

actually now that i think about it it makes a very strong build for a footdar list, no longer needing to walk accross the board with an autarch everything in reserve can come in on a 2+ (3+ normally +1 from autarchs master strategy rule) the half thats not in reserve will be the Dark Eldar portion and any tanks i might also be fielding. So bam turn two you have an army on your lines, course with more manuverability this might not be such a benefit any more anyways.
