The Solitaire

Just a quick vent. There has been a lot of talk about The Solitaire. About how it's fairly cheap and will destroy whole armies on it's own (this was from a certain local player). Only it wont. At most it'll kill 1 squad, 2 if it's Marines. Yes it's fast. Yes it hits like a ton of bricks. Yes it'll take on most things in the game. However it suffers from 1 MAJOR weakness. It's an Eldar that can't join squads/be joined by characters. A decent round of fire from a Tactical Squad with just Bolters and it's gone. The only reason I say it'll kill 1 unit, 2 for Marines is because it'll run down what ever it was fighting and then sit there in the middle of your army going "oh shit...", Marines however will sit there and die in the second round of combat (IE your turn) so it can then charge again in it's turn but at this point should have 1 wound left and be easy to deal with. It honestly is not the God Killing Space Clown people seem to think it is. Chill :P

  1. On average if it blitzes it only kills 3.5 marines, I'm genuinely unconcerned about him.
    That's not to say that if you leave him be he's not a problem though, like you say, a good bolter volley and he's toast.
