Hey Pythonman, Welcome to Librarium Online.
There are specific sub-forums for each race, and in turn for army lists written for each race. I'm going to Send this thread over to the Eldar Army Lists forum, where it can live happily with the other eldar army lists.
For 500pts you are far over-spending on your farseer. In such a low points game I feel the max you should be spending on him is 85 points or so.
You're short a troops choice, unless you're using alternate rules, you're going to need two groops. I think a pair of Dire avengers squads in wave serpents with missile launchers would honestly serve best, unless you prefer a squad of storm guardians for the close-combat ability.
Just taking a quick look, while your bright lance vyper does add some anti tank it is quite expensive for a relatively weak vehicle that could be taken down with relative ease, if you go with alzers suggestion and take the wave serpents with missile launchers that should cover your anti tank for 500 points and they would be that much more durable as well, the points from dropping the vyper should help towards the wave serpents, I agree with him as well about your farseer having too many upgrades, usually I just him doom and leave it at that but thats just me
Hope this helps
What Twin-Linked weapon does your Wave Serpent have? (Based on the point cost I would guess that it's TW Shuricannons.)
Terminator armor going critical would be like Three Mile Island only very, VERY angry, and carrying a hammer.
LO rules in a nutshell: Don't post unit costs, be polite, rep posts containing of win.
Well first off welcome to the game and hobby, that said you might want to tone back your farseer like Alzer suggested. However for the upgrades you have listed your farseer comes out to 153pts. Just doom and guide are all you really need for 500pt level bringing your farseer to 100pts, and a full 10 man squad of dire averngers with an exarch( armed with twin catapults and bladestorm) for a mere 152pts. The farseer coupled with your dire avengers in a wave serpent with twin linked shuriken catapults and spirit stones(your gonna want to keep this guy moving) will come in for a grand total of 362pts. With 138pts to play with you could put in a six man squad of striking scorpions with exarch upgrade, biting blade, stalker and shadowstrike, for some outflanking terror.
