The Rangers are an Eldar sniper and scout squad. They start out as a simple anti-infantry unit with detection and can be upgraded to infiltrate themselves as well as any other allied units within a small area. A single Ranger squad consists of one model armed with a long rifle and two models equipped with Shuriken pistols and swords.
