    Personally I believe Eldrad is a little pricey for a point size game of this caliber. I'd consider dropping him for just a Farseer with Doom, stick him with one of the DA squads. Add 2 Fire Prisms with the remaining points (bringing you to 958 ). Drop the bright lance on one Serpent for a shuri-cannon, drop 1 DA, add in 5 rangers. That'll give you 3 troop objective capping units. More anti-troop and anti-tank power from the prisms with the ability to focus or disperse shot with high str. low APs. 1 DA loss isn't too big of a deal, it's 3 shots...roughly 1 wound. But in return you're getting a static fire support Ranger unit that *can* put out some AP1 shots on solo models plus the chance of pinning. In combination with a +1 to cover rolls and infiltrate, you can make an early push for certain objectives, forcing your opponent to focus earlier on it, than push him around from the other side while he's focusing fire.

    my 2¢

    Very good advice, geez emp, leave something for me to comment on

    I'd definitely consider dropping star engines off one or both of the DA's wave serpents. With the points spared there you can upgrade to pathfinders, or scrimp further and find another unit you like. The DA's don't gain very much from star engines since 12" + 18" gets your DA's shuriken pretty much anywhere and you don't have to subject yourself to waiting a turn before doing any killing. The only real place that you stand to gain from star engines with DA's is in last minute objective grabs. If you only scrap one you can still do my patented star engine screen, but since its not a CC unit I'd seriously consider letting the star engines sit out a round.

    With the points spared from eldrad, star engines and so forth you can add a lot more fire power with prisms, or some CC clean up.

    Drop eldrad for a doomseer.

    Drop Star engines.

    Take a banshee squad w/exarch acrobatic and mirrorswords (or executioner). Take another wave serpeant w/ TL EML and put doomseer in it too.


    OR

    Take 2 Fire prisms after you drop eldrad and replace with doomseer.

    No codex with me so i cant do exact numbers.
    Eldar -APOC- 6500 Points
    Chaos Daemons -Fate Crusher- 3500 Points
    Grey knights - 1000 Points
