An Exarch is the leader of an Aspect Shrine.
During his training under Asurmen, Irillyth was gifted with a terrible psychic vision of the future. Instead of firing their Prism Rifles or the Exarch’s Prism Lance individually the squad may take a single Ghostlight shot of greatly enhanced power which is particularly useful when used against the most powerful armoured targets like Space Marine Land Raiders. Still reeling from the near-destruction of his race during the Fall of the Eldar in the 30th Millennium, Irillyth vowed not to allow any more of his kin to be wiped out and he set out to find Mymeara and prepare it for the battle that lay ahead.

Between their ghost-like appearance and name, and their tendency to become Wraithguard after they die, they represent Khaine’s aspect as an eternal warrior, even after death. It gets a lot better with Guide and somewhat better with an Autarch, though of course Guide can only benefit one unit. Sepctres from ” http: Eventually, the Shadow Spectres Aspect became extinct on all of the known Craftworlds or so it was thought by the Eldar, who did not know that a small number of Shadow Spectres had remained active on long-hidden Mymeara.
Considering they have either single hitting S8 shots or multi-hitting S5 blasts that do multiple wounds per hit, they can effectively end most non-horde infantry and vehicles down wind of them. For most people they just are to expensive to points cost to be viable spamming then though. So I’ve been tempted by the Shadow Spectres mainly due to the models being cool.

As has been the case for basically as long as M3 has been a thing, the Banshee has been let down by not having enough attacks or a high enough strength value to outpreform the Striking Scorpion convincingly enough to take them over them outside of situational cases.
