Only available to Yvraine and the Yncarne, these powers allow them to play both a supportive and offensive role for your army. Broadly speaking, the best powers to take on 2 Shadowseers are Webway Dance and Veil of Tears on the Shadowseer in the back and 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.
Now actually a better combatant than Yvraine. As with any Ynnari Psyker, she can use Strength From Death to cast a Psychic Power, the most useful of which will probably be Word of the Phoenix, assuming you haven’t cast it already, as this lets her “pass” the Soulburst trigger to anything you like, even if your opponent has been avoiding letting something react.
In addition to her impressive powers, Yvraine also has several abilities that make her surprisingly survivable. The single most expensive HQ choice for the Eldar, the Yncarne clocks in at a whopping points to field, equipped with nothing but Vilith-shar, the Sword of Soulsan awesome weapons that is S6 AP-4 DD6 with re-rolls to wound.
While mixed soup lists are over, you can still take these units in separate detachments and remain battle forged. 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.
Look at your list, figure out what your plan for it is, then decide if you think it’ll benefit more from Rising Crescendo and Masque Form abilities or Strength from Death. The embrace came second overall. It lets you Advance in the Movement Phase while still being allowed to Charge just like the formation bonus of the same name from 7th but starting Turn 1which is extremely useful already.

Know what you’re likely to be facing and build your Harlequins accordingly.

The Yncarne cannot charge after arriving in 40l way as his rule prohibits it, so you ideally want him popping up on your opponent’s turn. Given the charge-happy nature of your Harlequins, it’s hardly worth giving up your ability to advance and charge as well as the ability to fall back, shoot and charge again so you can squeeze in a maximum of one extra charge if you kill a squad on your turn.
While the 8″ of movement it has may not seem particularly fast, the Yncarne also has the unique ability to teleport to the location where any squad friend or foe is killed, so long corex it is at least 1″ away from enemy units. This special rule lets codwx pull plenty of shenanigans as well as boosting your speed in general harequins letting you strike first in the majority of assaults you get harleequins.

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. Views Read Edit View history. This mainly stems from the fact that she’s a psyker which means she doesn’t want to be on transports, your clowns want to be in transports. You have been bringing those absurdly cheap Warlocks to accompany her, right?
They must now be pure Craftworlds, Drukhari or Harlequins detachments only. 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.
Where as she’s an excellent support character with her psychic powers and fits rather naturally in a Craftworld harlequind Dark Eldar Ynnari detachment she finds a bit of friction in a solely Harlequin Ynnari army. Overall an okay discipline, but it requires a lot of harleqquins thought to utilise properly.
Soulbursts now cannot be triggered on your opponent’s turn, and only one of each particular action can be performed on your turn. However with the Ghost Clowns he can prove useful if less than hyper efficient, just stick him in a clown car with codwx murderous comedians with fusion pistols and embraces. Note that you lose this rule if you field Harlequins in a Ynnari force.
It’s no longer a terrible unit, but it faces some pretty stiff competition in an elite army. This is the current Edition’s Eldar Harlequins tactics. Phantasmancy is the unique Harlequins discipline, and it’s a grab bag of buffs, debuffs, and a few direct attacks.
His sword hits harder than the kiss and has a leadership debuff and at A 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 400k bit, but this still hits rather hard, is scary to characters, elites, and can put the hurt on hordes.

Retrieved from ” https: Costs more than Yvraine, but does absolutely nothing for your army other than bodyguard Yvraine – as a melee beatstick he’s far too expensive to be worth it. Badly positioned, they’ll still quickly die to the enemy’s firepower, but with proper planning you’ll be laughing all the way to the circus.
Harlequins are massively improved from 7th in almost every way. 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.
The high AP makes it better against high armour saves, halrequins not invulnerable saves. Effectively, Ynnari Harlequins are more destructive, but regular Harlequins are more likely to make harleqins into close combat in the first place. In 8th, though, you lose the benefit of Rising Crescendo, an extremely useful tool for securing charges and performing counter-charges.
Your ad here, right now: Even better though, it allows Harlsquins to fall back and still shoot or charge, letting you steal the initiative from your opponents or pull out 40 difficult fights to charge a more suitable opponent. 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! Because you love practical jokes, big smiles, and grisly murder, have a thing for Carnevale masks, and like laughing at your opponents when your psychedelic clown elves eat entire units in assault at the speed of light.
Ccodex Caress works better against T5, T8, and T9.
