After months of deliberation I decided that I would start an Eldar army as my first foray into 40k, since the new Guard Codex is still a ways away and I like the "eliteness" Eldar bring to the table.
1500 Points Eldar list
HQ Total: 255 points
Autarch on a Jetbike with Mandiblasters and a laser lance (to be attached to shining spears)
Farseer with Runes of Witnessing, Spirit Stones, Fortune, and Guide (to be attached to reapers)
Elites Total: 103 points
6 Fire Dragon with Exarch and Tankhunters
Troops Total: 517 points
10 Dire Avengers with Exarch with Avenger Shuriken Catapult and Bladestorm
Wave Serpent with twin-linked Shuriken Cannons, Spirit Stones, and Star Engines
Fast Attack Total: 227 points
5 Shining Spears with an Exarch with Star Lance and withdraw
Heavy Support Total: 397 points
5 Dark Reapers with an Exarch with Tempest Launcher, Crack Shot, and Fast Shot
Falcon with Shuriken Cannon, Spirit Stones, Holo-fields, and Star Engines
wow! for a first timer, that is a pretty sound list! i must say you have constructed well! the only thing that i would suggest, and this is ONLY a suggestion, is that you figure out a way to add in another 10 man avenger squad. also, this is only my thought, instead of reapers, which are really good, btw, add in a 3 man war walker squadron with scatter lasers. it'll run you 180 points without stones, and will shoot 24 str 6 shots per turn. for added fun, have one go off on its own, and the other two work in the same unit. the one can back up your pathfinders at an objective, or any other number of options. it will also free up some extra points, but GOOD JOB!! and welcome to eldar!! have fun, and don't hesitate to ask questions!!!
ooo, also, nix the shuri cannons on the serpent, and go with lances/lasers/EML instead. one of those would work well.
The idea of upping the waveserpents weapons is a sound one. Be really careful with your shining spear and autarch unit they will destroy most things on the charge and your enemies will know it. Expect them to get alot of fire if your enemy can get LoS on them. Lastly I'm not sure if you need star engines on your transports the extra points could get you a couple more bodies on the table. The overall list is very nice though.
