I'm having a spring clean of my collection and amongst the random junk I've found 20 odd Eldar Guardians. I'm currently dipping my toe back in the 40K waters, so I'm wondering whether 20 Guardians would be a usable core for a current army or whether its all in the Aspect Warriors – in which case they are up for disposal?

With shuriken catapults and a heavy weapon option and backed by a Warlock they can be a pretty effective option.

As Pictors said. I'd forgo the heavy, but that's just personal taste. Footdar are fast.

Thanks for the advice. Unfortunately at least 10 are equipped with 'flashlights' and can't be altered. The others seem to be lacking catapults as well so I'd have to find spares. I think I'll ditch them and leave someone else to resurrect them. If I get around to an Eldar army I'm probably better off starting from scratch rather than hording stuff on the off chance.

Some of the 2nd edition Eldar had lasguns :)

Apparently they had the alt orientation shuriken catapults.

Mithmee happens to like guardians with lasguns.
