Welcome to Librarium Online!
Friend sent me this list today and asked for my opinion but before I send it back thought I'd ask for feed back here, I've already made a few changes (i bulked out his DA squad and his Scorp squad, I recommended Karandras over Asurman, I reduced his ranger squads size, and I recommended 3x of either the walkers or vypers since that way a foe must full kill 2 for VP purposes... he'd originally had it split 2 walkers 1 vyper) but I'm reserving my last few until I see what other folks say...
T- Rangers x5
T- Dire Avengers x 10 w/ Exarch, DEfend, Double Shuricats
E- Str. Scorp x8 w/ Exarch, Chainsabres
E- Wraithguard x5 w/ Warlock, Conceal
E- Fire DRagons x6 w/ Exarch, DB Flamer
FA- Swoop Hawks x6 w/ Exarch, Hawks Talon, Skyleap, Intercept
HS- Wraithlord w/ dbl flamer, Wraithsword, Eldar ML
HS- FAlcon w/ Scatter Laser, Shuri Cann, Holofield, Sprt Stones
FA 3x Vypers w/ Scat LAser, Shuri Cann
HS 3x War Walkers w/ Scat Laser, Star Cann
22 points are still free in the list
If I'm understanding his strategy right...
The Rangers and Scorps deploy early
The Avegners, Wraithguard, Lord, and Fire dragons move on foot
The falcon and light vehicles flank
the Hawks, well, deep strike as hawks do.
Making Sisters of Battle into Women of Battle
Give a Rep Star if you like what someone said. Especially Me. I'm an unabashed Star whore. Blame my 2nd grade teacher and those stupid good behavior stickers. I'm just conditioned. I'm the Pavlov's Dog of stars.
You win with VP, NOT with kills
I would never walk the Dragons on foot. The Falcon and Dragons are meant for eachother. I always field 5 dragons and Fuegan in a falcon. I can fly to the other side of the board in turn one and even if the falcon dies, I have 2 melta units right where I want them. Then fuegan can do a little CC because hes the biggest BA pheonix lord of the lot. Actually, I usually run 6 firedragons and fuegan in a Wave Serpent then another squad of 6 in a falcon. Give one FD exarch Crack Shot and Dragon's Breath Flammer and the other Tank hunters and a Fire Pike.

Wow, Eldrad and Kharandras. That's a lot of points. Cool as phoenix lords are, I'm not sure I'd have the nerve to use 2 expensive HQ's like that. 2 models account for over 400 points!
I personally don't use fire dragons much, but everybody here talks about not taking an exarch at all for them. I'd also take a claw over chainsabers on the scorpion exarch, and if at all possible maximize the squad size (though if you are restricted pointswise, 8 should do fine). I'd drop the hawks in favor of some warp spiders. The squad just isn't worth it for just the grenade packs. If you're going sual shuricats on the avenger exarch, he should have bladestorm instead of defend. Or if you feel like it, both. But if your going to go shooty on the exarch, you might as well maximize it. Finally, the wraithsword isn't really worth it. The model looks cool, but you're much better off with a brightlance/eml combo.
