Aeldari Corsair Battleships

The Voidstalker represents the sole choice in the Battleship category of the Aeldari Corsair's fleet, boasting the best armament the Eldar Pirates can muster on a single vessel, with engines matching the speed of a Cobra Destroyer. Having a Capital class ship than can kite and keep at range, vessels half its size, is a unique selling point of the Eldar and is quite fun to mess with once you get the hang of keeping their fragile ships alive.

Point Cost: 472
Raw Total Crit Output: 8.7 critical hits per minute

  • 4 x Launch Bay
    Darkstar Fighters/Eagle Bombers (3 charges each)
  • 4 x Heavy Starcannon Artillery
    Exceptional Accuracy (85/70/55/40/25)
    90° Front
    Range: 13,500
  • 4 x Heavy Pulsar Cannon Beam
    100% Accuracy, Pierces Armor
    10° Front
    Range: 13,500

While the Voidstalker doesn't massively increase the dps from the Cruiser class options, packing in quad launch bays, an extra engine and nearly twice the hull points it is a lightning quick behemoth capable of ripping apart smaller line ships with ease.

The Voidstalker's biggest selling point has to be the extended range of it's weapons, the only ones on any of the Corsair ships that have a base range over 9,000 units. This means the Voidstalker can devastate enemy vessels from well outside normal identification range and just outside the range of an escort's scanner ability.

The one downside is of course the extreme points cost, limiting the number you can field at once to really only one under most reasonable circumstances. Having 2 Voidstalkers would only leave you just over 200 points in a normal sized fleet and having extended ranged weapons isn't as useful if you don't have other ships to help with spotting. You could use the interceptors, but leaving the bays available to deploy bombers more often does a big boost to your offensive power.
