    Why should Orcs be the only ones who get to swarm?

    I think I have enough Starcannons to take out marines, but maybe 2 Bright lances and 3 monstrous creatures is not enough to take out a tank-heavy force. Against Tyranids and Orcs, I'm going to have to rely on good salvo fire before a close combat which I will likely lose.

    aside from the formating issues:

    the farseer is over cooked
    the avatar and WL are asking for 1750 points worth of AT, which will be a short arguement you will lose
    Your harley squad has wasted points on poor upgrades like death jesters, and is too small for 1750 points battles
    yoru AT is to sparse and too unreliable for this level of game
    and any assault based unit will skip striaght over the range of your guardians without you getting any shuriken catapault shots off and eat your squads with impunity.

    (sorry but it is pretty poor) If you want to do an eldar hoard you need to look to storm guardians I think, but you need to sort out the other stuff too
    Everything you have been told is a lie!

    I agree that the monstrous creatures will be seeing a lot of fire.

    The Single Farseer with all the powers is not optimal, indeed.

    Shadowseer protects the Harlequins from Long range fire. I'd say that's a huge benefit. Well worth the points. Whether the Kiss, Ld10 & extra attack is worth 20 pts for the troupe master is debatable. And a Shrieker cannon is worth the 10 pts, if you can fit them in the list.

    OK, let's scale the horde back a bit, and drop in some cheese.

    Farseer Fortune, Runes of Warding, Runes of Witnessing 100
    Farseer Guide, Mind War, Runes of Witnessing 100
