    Why Eldrad Ulthran? not only is it incredibly unfluffy hes not that great in this list... Avatar would be fluff and a Phoenix Lord (Maugan Ra in this instance) would probably be best. Or of course a farseer.

    Your biggest problem is that in 2500 points you have 1 tank and no monsters... that serpent is going to die in an instant to 2500 points worth of anti-tank firepower.

    I say drop the wave serpent and Eldrad Ulthran, the troupe master, death jester, fast shot, the warp spider upgrades (which he can't actually take).

    Add:
    3 more scorpions
    an avatar
    20 guardians or storm guardians + conceal warlock

    That would make your army more fun and more in style with the theme you have.

    To be more effective (and lose the theme):
    Keep serpent for the banshees, lose the starcannons.
    Add a serpent to the dire avengers.
    Add a serpent for the striking scorpions
    Add a falcon OR fire prism
    Drop the support weapons
    Add 3 War Walkers /w scatter lasers
    Drop the Wraithguard
    Add another Falcon OR Fire Prism

    Basically its all or nothing with the vehicles. At 2500 points you need at least 4 of them (and at least 2 of those with holo-fields) for any to survive. The alternative is to play with none and have a foot-slogging eldar.

    Once upon a time I played foot-slogging biel-tan and it was great fun. Good luck if you choose to do that too.

    If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.

    Mandiblasters is always the best option unless of course you decide that your autarch is too ugly and suicide into the stealers. i wouldnt even go for an autarch against our dark twin.

    Eldrad Ulthran 210

    What link said

    7 Striking Scorpions Exarch, Scorpions Claw, Shadow strike 159

    Why 7? 4 die and its non scoring 8 4 die still scoring

    10 Wraithguard warlock, conceal, spiritseer (counts as troop) 395

    10 Holwing Banshees Exarch, Executioner, Wave Serpent Twin Starcannons, Vectored Engines 327

    Dont like these guys, if the serpent blows up the banshees are useless.

    10 Harlequins Troupe Master, Death Jester, Shadowseer 272

    Dunno about the jester, shrui cannon isnt gonna do much and how often does 1 shrui cannon pin something?

    10 Dire Avengers Exarch, Power Weapon and Shimmer Shield, Bladestorm 162

    Get more of these

    10 Warp Spiders Exarch, Exarch Death Spinner, Fast Shot, Crack Shot 237

    Fast shot and crack shot????? reading the wrong section

    10 Swooping Hawks Exarch, Power Weapon, Skyleap, Intercept 235

    s3 lacks punch and 4+ armour save isnt gonna help.... though the pie plate helps a bit. but still not worth da points.

    3 Support Weapon Battery Dcannon 150

    5 Dark Reapers Exarch, Tempest Launcher, Fast Shot, Crack Shot 225

    Dont like these options, just chucking out our super tough skimmers and our speed.

    Total 2497

    I have to agree with all of the above. Eldar's greatest strength lies in the whole being greater than the sum of the parts (or something like that). I actually just invested in 3 more skimmers to expand my lists and make them more effective in the larger point games. They are expensive to buy but will cause your opponent endless frustration. I have had falcons survive to the end of the game taking 3-4 lascannon hits per turn.
