Eldar are known for their vehicles. No self-respecting Eldar playing would ever go into a big game without wave serpants, fire prisms, or jet bikes.
Or would they?
Let's hear some suggestions about the best way to make an Eldar army (however many points you want, heck, lets hear an idea or a 5k pt army with no vehicles) with only things that have legs. This includes Wraithlords and Wraithguards.
This doesn't go in Army Lists, hopefully it gets moved.
I don't think it's ever possible to win like this. It can be done with Wraithlords but having no speed, no tarpits and not real long ranged shooting is a horrible army. Eldar are about speed, selective firepower and selective assaults, not advancing in waves. It's just not their army.
Check my Blog for Battle Reports, useless ranting and more! Comments appreciated.

That said, if you focus on units such as infiltrators (Scorpions, Pathfinders), fast non-vehicle units (Warp Spiders, Swooping Hawks), some long ranged support (possibly artillery, large tarpit Guardian squads), and some LOS blocking units (Wraithlords, Avatar) then you'll have a reasonable list, albeit not nearly as competitive as a balanced or mechanised list.
Bottom line is that you should do what makes the most sense to you, and allows you to have the most fun. I'm always in support of going for "different" armies, and a footslogging Eldar list isn't impossible to win with, just a lot more difficult.
I don't think it's really possible to make a *good* eldar list without vehicles. Hypothetically, you could run squads of Jetbike Guardians, seer councils on jetbikes, and Shining spears, and it wouldn't to TOO badly, but this cheats your original idea of having foot slogging lists.
I was actually going to start looking into a similar idea, mainly to try and find a good way to use night spinners.
not really. fritz's tactics are usually solid, and i'm sure you'd find it insightful. If you're not wanting to spend $10, then it's worth just going thru his blog and hit youtube channel looking for the harlequin related stuff. It's an interesting, fun looking list with decent synergy and the potential to be at least semi-competitive.
if you're looking for a good list without vehicles, I'd say frit'z harlequins are a better place to start than most.
Well, you pay for convenience all the time and that's all the PDF is. The ideas consolidated and and better explained. If you want to trawl through the blog posts and older youtubes, then go for it.
