    I wouldn't like to be looking at all those bright lances and Fire prism shots. Against this list I reckon the Eldar will need to priorotise their targets and neutralise the big threats like the Russes. Also, the IG anti-armour punch is softened slightly by the Wave Serpents' Forcefields and the Holo-Fields on your Prisms...in other words that means that those War Walkers of yours are going to take a hell of a pounding.

    Im pulling for the IG here. The list is better, you have no elites in the eldar! What is the autarch gonna do? The entire army is shooting but the storm guardians, you need some banshees or scorpions in there. But if the eldar makes good use of its targets it can pull of a win. Shall be interesting.

    I'd have to give it to Eldar on this one. Those flying saucers are just too damn hard to take down, and eldar's got enough brightlances to do some damage.

    Word of advice for the eldar player. Take down his chimeras first. Limit his mobility and you've pretty much got the game, especially in objectives-base missions.

    Haha, no love for the IG heh? I hate playing against eldar because their stupid tanks have so much defence it takes 5 shots just to get through it. Then they just fortune their warwalkers and blast away. Not fair . Just all you wait though I will pull it out for the IG!

    Generally speaking, IG have a huge advantage over Eldar in that they can fit in more tanks and anti-tank per point. Eldar mainly have to rely on Fire Dragons and over-costed lances. As far as the lists themselves go, The IG are surprisingly low on anti-tank (for an army that can cram in more meltas than anybody the choice of special weapons seems a bit strange), and the Eldar I think are spending too many points on upgrades. If I had to call it, I'd say guard. 5 lances and 2 fusion guns (and 2 prisms in a pinch) just isn't enough to open all those chimeras and russes.

    Haha...sorry about the delay...busy with work. Anyway it was basically over in the first round . IG shooting took out the Wave Serpent transporting the Storm Guardians sticking them in their deployment zone, and they took out 2 Warwalkers. Sadly it ended up being 3-0 for IG...Not really going to go round by round because of the fact that it was over so fast. All the IG lost was one LR, a Chimera, and a couple random Guardsmen.
