    My plan is to take out his destroyer first, since they are the rgeater danger wiht the long range. my rangers will attempt to pin units so veil or shooting is not a possibilty. im basically gonna charge forwards iwht the banshees, try to take out his destroyers iwht the banshees and tons of star cannon shots. i mind war his lord 3 times a turn, and try to get the possibilty of veil even furthur gone. then when his destroyers are gone...concentrate on everythign else on his warriors and anythgin that is a "necron"...basically out shoot him...wat do u think of my strat and list? cheesy? its kind of a hit or miss cuz if u fields a monolith...im doomed a night bringer i can handle with the rangers and mind war. if he fields the monlith then i ignore it.

    i didnt hink that ultwe were allowed vehicles such as the wraithlord and wave serpent.
    spend the points on more howling banshees or aload more rangers.

    you also seem to have used alot of points on the seer counsil. maybe drop a a farseer or 2

    other than this it looks ok. i dont play eldar so i might be wrong.

    so how do you get regular ulthwe. is it normal eldar but with seer councils.

    you should be able to beat necrons. just use your tactics and it should work.

    I am concerned at the lack of Aspect Warriors: Banshees are good only for the first turn they&#39;re in combat. Scorpions or Fire Dragons would be a better choice.

    Also, what is with all the starcannons? Get a bright lance or two for opening up enemy armour.

    Realise that the war walkers and wraithlord will be effective magnets for enemy firepower. Have a Vyper or a Falcon for mobile heavy weapons; that way if you keep them moving if hit they only count as glancing hits. With some of the upgrades (Crystal Targeting Matrix and another... Star/Vectored Engines, I think it is) you can move, shoot, and move back into cover again easily in one turn.

    banshees should be perfect as their power weapons deny WBB rolls.
