    1500Pts Need input :)

    Hey, Im semi-new to Warhammer 40k, played back in Ed3 and got hooked again thanks to DoW. Anyway, here is my thoughts on an initial 1500pts Eldar force. Any constructive input would be apprechiated.

    HQ:173
    Autrach with MandiBlaster and PowerWepon=90
    Farseer with doom singing spear=83
    Troops:719
    10xDireAvengers(exarch with shimmershield and PowerW Powers:defend+bladestorm
    Waveserpent with Brightlance
    =312
    10xDireAvengers
    Same as above
    =312
    5xRangers
    =95
    Elites:476
    8xStrikingScorpions(exarch with claw)
    WS with StarC
    =280
    6xFireDragons
    WS with ShurikenCannon
    =196
    Fast attack:132
    5xSwooping Hawks(exarch with Skyleap)
    =132
    Total=1500

    Both the Farseer and Autrach goes with the Scorpions. Hawks used for harasment and grenade pack.

    Not bad.

    The Dire Avengers would probably be better suited with a dual shuriken cannon exarch with bladestorm since they are mounted up and will have an easier time shooting.

    The Star Cannons aren't all the great on the wave serpent, so going with Scatter Lasers or Shuriken Cannons might be better.

    Swooping Hawks aren't all that reliable. I would suggest dropping them for a squad of 6 Guardian Jetbikes with 2 Shuriken Cannons.

    Then the Rangers seem a bit out of place. The rest of the army is fast and mobile, but they're not.

    Finally, the wave serpents could really use Spirit Stones. They won't be doing anyone any good if they're stuck standing still.

    Thanks for the input!
    The rangers are mostly because I like the models. Not because they are awesome units
    I removed the Hawks and replaced it with 2 Fireprisms. SO the optional army looks like this:

    HQ:173
    Autrach with MandiBlaster and PowerWepon=90
    Farseer with singing spear Power: doom =83
    Troops:624
    10xDireAvengers(exarch with two catapults:defend+bladestorm
    Waveserpent with Brightlance+Spirit Stones
    =312
    10xDireAvengers
    Same as above
    =312

    Elites:471
    8xStrikingScorpions+exarch with claw
    WS with ShurikenCannon+Spirit Stones
    =265
    6xFireDragons
    WS with ShurikenCannon+Spirit Stones
    =206
    Heavy Support:230
    2xFireprism=230

    Total=1498

    So 6 "Tanks" in a 1500pts army, might be a bit excesive?
