    Eldar army, from painted models

    I will try to make some use of my Eldar models, so here is two army lists, they are not fully complete because of a few reasons. On is that I dont know what kind of weapon I shold put on the serpents and two I have some painted models to chose from and I dont now whant shod be best (least bad...).

    Green is painted and ready to go (I whant to use as much of those as possible
    Blue is owned but no painted

    Red I dont have

    Just to make this clear Im a slow painter, I will not swap 50% of the models I have for something else, I just try to make the best of what I have. 10 models take alot of
    time for me to finish. You can cheek some of the models on cool mini or in some old Eldar painting thread here on LO.

    Man, I wish I had that much of my armyt painted! About list 1, I would put Either a specialist AT weapons, or a versatili EML, because using blast templates, BS doesn't matter asmuch. Hope that helped.

    You will need 1 more troop choice for this list, or you will find capture and control and seize ground will be come difficult cause he will just target your troop choices, forcing you to only draw at best. Even something as simple as a 10 man guardian squad witha scatter lase rin cover is fine. One thing i do suggest is finding the points for 2 prisms. 2 make the effectivness dramatically increase.

    Thanks allot I think I put a second fire prism at the side for the moment, I already have 3 more skimmers to paint if I use this list. Thats enough to start with IMO, it will take long time to finish anyway, still a second prism can be swapped later . Im also a little curious about jetbikes, I kinda like those, but rangers is a better way to go?

    What I would do is trade some of those dragons for banshees, Like at least 2.

    I cant say if rangers are better than bikes because they are used 100% differently. THey both have their uses and are both good.

    This list is good enough to start out with. SO give it a shot.
