    1500 vs D.eldar Cut throat, needing suggestions

    hopefully this list will be tweaked to annihilate dark eldar. my opp will most likely be using a tricked out incubi squad with the hq, some warp beasts

    i previously played dark angels death wing and would have to charge/ds my terms through his whole army every game. and would lose due to the incubi retinue

    goin eldar

    avater [155]
    autarch: laser lance, reaper launcher, mandi blasters, jetbike [155]

    fire dragons x6 [96]
    scorpions x8 ex. - biting blade [145]

    dire avengers x8 [96]
    dire avengers x8 [96]
    dire avengers x8 [96]
    guardian defenders x10 missile launcher [100]
    jetbikes x4 s/cannon [98]
    jetbikes x4 s/cannon [98]

    vyper s/cannon, missile launcher [75]

    2x support weapons vibro [100]
    falcon: s/cannon, missile launcher [holo fields,spirit stones] [190]

    on your autarch, dont give him both a reaper launcher and a jetbike as he will be sarificing the benefits of one to use the other. also, your fire dragons ideally need a transport to make use of there powerful but short weaponry. i suggest not using just one vyper as it will be made short work of quickly; try not to make them too expensive. good luck!

    Fire Dragons Are Riding In The Falcon - Left That Part Out
    Prolly Gonna Drop The Reaper Launcher

    The Vyper Filled Out The 75 Remaining Points.

    Any Ideas About What The Cost Of This Plus The Reaper Upgrade Could Get Me?

    Extra Support Weapon/adding Troops To Each Unit...


    Good Advice. I Felt The Vyper Was Vulnerable But I Needed Something Speedy. Perhaps Some Shining Spears

    Outside of turboboosting, why would the Autarch lose the benefits of both? Jetbikes/Bikes are relentless.

    Mmm True I Forgot About The Usr, That Does Involve Using More Than One Weapon/ Shooting Phase Correct?

    Now The Reaper Is A Heavy Weapon. Since He Is Riding A Jetbike Does That Affect His Ability To Floor It, Click The Shoot Button With His Thumb While Shooting The Reaper?

    I Could See A Trade Between Using The Reaper And The Lance.

    No... it lets them fire heavy/rapid fire while moving and/or assaulting.

    I see that... when there is nothing nearby, he can snipe with the reaper launcher. Then dive in with the lance when it is needed.

    As a dark eldar player, I can tell you that your squad of fire dragons is going to get steamrolled without doing anything, or is not going to accomplish anything. They just don't have the range to threaten dark eldar.
    I'd use those points, and drop a jetbike from each squad. Combine the two jetbike squads. Add in at least one more vyper. As it is, your falcon is going to eat the five or six dark lances every turn that your opponent will shoot. with a little more units to chose from doing more damage, it's likely to accomplish more.
