I performed some math hammer, pitting Troupes against space marines, terminators, death guard, dg termies, ork boyz, wyches, and kabalite warriors.
Remember that you still need to to take the following units in a separate Detachment should you coddex to use them: While the 8″ of movement it has may not seem particularly fast, the Yncarne also has the unique ability harlequina teleport to the location where any squad friend or foe is killed, so long as it is at least 1″ away from enemy units. With the Haywire and Prismatic Cannons change harlequis Heavy to Assault, you’re now a little more accurate with your shots while on the move, and can even advance for laughs.
There aren’t any named Harlequins with rules right now, but since you can field Harlequins in an Ynnari force, the Ynnari named characters are listed here. The Caress works better against T5, T8, and T9.
In 8th, though, you lose the benefit of Rising Crescendo, an extremely useful tool for securing charges and performing counter-charges. Even better though, it allows Harlequins to fall back and still shoot or charge, letting you steal the initiative from your opponents or pull out of difficult fights to charge a more suitable opponent.
All in all she’s good but the above might mesh better with your clowns. However with the Ghost Clowns he can prove useful if less than hyper efficient, just stick him in a clown car with 5 murderous comedians with fusion pistols and embraces. She’s as fast as your clowns so no problems keeping up, and with inevitable death the fact that she can’t board your transports becomes a non issue. She also lacks the speed of your dudes unlike the Shadowseer who’s powers are more suited for supporting your dudes, the Shadowseer also has a stratagem to reposition her anywhere on the field if needed and you have your fight twice stratagem of you REALLY need to make sure somethings dead or don’t want to use that Soul Burst action.
Use your Dark Reapers to nuke some squishy back-line unit, then have the Yncarne teleport behind enemy lines to hit’ em where it hurts!
His sword hits harder than the kiss and has a leadership debuff and at Harlsquins 5 6 with the relevant warlord trait if you took him as your WL you insane bastard something is gonna feel the hurt but he lacks the reroll to wound bubble your Troupe Master has which hurts a bit, but this still hits rather hard, is scary to characters, elites, and can put the hurt on hordes. GW has to sell that box set I guess.

It, therefore, tends to occupy a dual roll, being very good against elite armies such as Custodes, and spam armies such as Orks and Guard; however, the high AP of the Embrace might be preferable against some armies with a higher armour save.
Your ad here, right now: In 7th, taking Harlequins as Ynnari was almost flat-out better, as harleuqins lost nothing to gain Strength from Death. This will determine their Chapter Tactics equivalent, Masque Forms. The linchpin of any Ynnari detachment, Yvraine costs points and is exclusively armed with Kah-vir, the Sword of Sorrows basically a Force Axe stat-wise. Special Characters [ edit ] There aren’t any named Harlequins with rules right now, but since you can field Harlequins in an Ynnari force, the Coded named characters are listed here.
It’s a Tax, but all three cpdex are in a good spot now. Views Read Edit View history. They’re extremely fast, surprisingly difficult to kill with proper support, and hit incredibly hard in Assault, quickly chewing through MEQs with mass high-strength, decent AP attacks.
Harlesuins speaking, the best powers to hadlequins on 2 Shadowseers are Webway Dance and Veil of Tears on the Shadowseer in the back harleqyins Twilight Pathways and Fog of Dreams on the one in the front; if you only have one, Twilight Pathways and Veil of Tears are probably the best combo intrinsically, letting you get 1 thing you want in position and hard to hurt, but your mileage may vary.
Put Kisses on models who will be character killing and leave it at that, though it now is actually a situational alternative to the Embrace and Caress.
The single most expensive HQ choice for the Eldar, the Garlequins clocks in at a whopping points to field, equipped with nothing but Vilith-shar, the Sword of Soulsan awesome harlequinw that is S6 AP-4 DD6 with re-rolls to wound. You can freely mix and match within a single unit – no target exists for which this is better than a loadout designed for that target, so this is inferior to specializing your units and sending them against the targets they’re good against, but on the other hand, a mixed unit of Embraces and Caresses will do reasonably well against whatever your opponent throws at you.
Overall an okay discipline, but it requires a lot of careful thought to utilise properly.
Possibly out and out the best of the three for a Harlequin Ynnari detachment if only going for the one with the main argument for the other two being price alone, but this girl is worth every single point on her own. Point for point, the blade was best against wyches, and the embrace was best against kabalites, but other than that the caress is most effective AND most cost effective. Of course, this advice is worth sod all in a blind match-up, so take whichever weapon counters what you are most afraid of, and if you fight an army who the weapon is not designed for it is not a huge loss, as both weapons perform very closely to each other.

You can no longer take Ynnari detachments with mixed troops due to changes to the Army of the Reborn rule. The following is very true if you’re being sensible and only taking the one Ynnari detachment, but if you do go for a full three Ynnari detachments you crazy sod you then you have to take him, and there aren’t many ways he can be useful since he’s not a strong supportive choice like Yvraine jarlequins the absolute murder the Yncarne can be.
Effectively, Ynnari Harlequins are more destructive, but regular Harlequins are more likely to make it into close combat in harlequinz first place. Navigation Main page Recent changes Random page Help. While mixed soup lists are over, you can still take these units in separate detachments and remain battle forged. Harlequins are massively improved from 7th in almost every way. This makes it cidex of the few units able to deep strike easily within charging range to wreak some melee havoc although it can’t charge when it Deep Strikes and can give it a terrifying threat radius.
