Support Weapon Battery
Similar to the Orks' Mek Gunz but much more refined and graceful (never say that to an Ork player, or you will be punched in the face), a Support Weapon Battery, also known as Vaul's Wrath, is an Eldar heavy weapons team consisting of one to three large grav platforms. These batteries are often used when a force is advancing or to form a solid defensive line. While they must be stationary in order to fire, these units provide tremendous supporting firepower to the Eldar and use advanced targeting arrays for pinpoint accuracy against even well-hidden foes.
Two Guardians operate each platform; one is the gunner, while the other is the spotter and defender. Occasionally some batteries will be joined by a Warlock during battle to further boost combat effectiveness.
The Support Weapon Battery comes in three available flavors:
- Vibro Cannons: Eldar sonic weaponry that shatters your very molecules with the power of ROCK & ROLL!
- Shadow Weavers: Giant, upscale versions of the monofilament guns wielded by Warp Spiders that rip apart fleshy infantry and the like. Great against hordes of enemies like Orks and 'Nids as well as SPESS MEHREENS!
- D-Cannons: Scary-as-shit void weaponry that blows open holes to the Warp itself, tearing chunks of armor, flesh, and soul quite literally into oblivion. Great for heavy infantry and tanks and perfect for removing those pesky Terminators from the battle.
