Primary Weapon and Uses
The Biel Tan Falcon is a quick and deadly tank. It’s ability to transport up to six infantry models anywhere on the battlefield make it a staple transport for Aeldari’s Aspect Warriors. The falcon’s Pulse Laser can punch through the toughest armor at a distance. The secondary heavy weapons the falcon can use, Star Cannon, Shuriken Catapult, Scatter Laser, Aeldari missile launcher or Bright Lance can be selected to tailor the tank to your opponent.
For horde armies the Scatter Laser and Shuriken Cannons are excellent choices. Their higher rate of fire and strength will thin out enemy infantry units. The Aeldari Missile Launcher firing fragmentation shells will also inflict high numbers of casualties on massed hordes.
One of the unique features of the Falcon is it’s ability to carry 6 infantry models into battle. This is the perfect size for carrying a squad of Aspect Warriors, the Aeldari elite to the heart of the battle or whisking them back to safety. Aspect Warriors are a key component of Biel-Tan’s Swordwind. Small elite bands of Howling Banshees, Fire Dragons, Dark Reapers, Striking Scorpions and Dire Avengers that strike at key components of enemy forces. Either as harassing units, units that must be dealt with or surgical assassins to cripple the enemy.
The Vyper is a fast moving gun platform, commonly armed with a Shuriken Cannon it’s capable of firing a veritable storm of spinning death. Vypers are deadly when flying solo. However a squad of 3 gains a substantial speed boost. Vypers make excellent escort vehicles for Falcons, armed with a Shuriken Cannon and it’s twin catapult launchers it’s capable of sending 7 shots at close range.
Replacing the Shuriken Cannon with a Heavy Weapon the Vyper becomes a powerful long range platform. Drawing fire from the Falcons, skirting the edges of the battlefield and forcing the enemy to keep track of them.
