    Eldar 2k (It's been awhile)

    I have not played 40k in quite some time, but my friends never stopped. I finally decided to pick it back up again, and realized I would like to make a new army - seeing as when I first started I bought mainly things that looked cool, rather than things that worked.

    So here is my idea...

    HQ
    Farseer
    -Doom

    Troops
    10x Dire Avengers
    -Exarch, blade storm, dual catapults
    Wave Serpent
    -TL Eldar Missile Launchers

    10x Dire Avengers
    -Exarch, blade storm, dual catapults
    Wave Serpent
    -TL Eldar Missile Launchers

    10x Dire Avengers
    -Exarch, blade storm, dual catapults
    Wave Serpent
    -TL Eldar Missile Launchers

    5x Rangers

    5x Rangers

    Elites
    10x Howling Banshees
    -Exarch with executioner
    Wave Serpent
    -TL Eldar Missile Launchers

    Fast Attack
    Vyper
    -Scatter Laser

    Vyper
    -Scatter Laser

    Vyper
    -Scatter Laser

    Heavy Support
    Fire Prism

    Fire Prism

    Fire Prism

    Now, I do not have the codex in front of me right now but I do believe this is the list I comprised when I did have it. It may be a little off, but I'm sure with a few minor adjustments it'll be 2000 points. The plan would be to use the rangers to hold objectives on my side of the field, and the Prism's throw out large blast. The vypers are mainly for covering the wave serpents as they charge forward. The Banshees, which would also have the doomseer, is to take out elite squads and the Avengers should be able to handle the weaker troops. My main concern is the lack of Anti-tank. The EML's provide some, but landraiders could become a problem.

    If it totally sucks, I can take the criticism. I never was the best, and I mainly play for fun - although winning occasionally would be nice.

    Very boring. I will never understand the need people have to win in a game where the results are entirely determined by chance.

    I'd lose the vypers and rangers myself, then that gives you some points to play with in getting some really good units in there. Fill you elite slots up or get your self a seers council, on jet bikes or not, your choice.

    It could just happen that he likes all of the units he included in his army you know. I happen to like the look and feel of a mech army with my own twist to make it more fun. It isn't all 5 man squads and WS so I'm fine with it.

    As far as the list, maybe take out the Vypers for Fire Dragons and a Wave Serpent if you are that worried but I don't think you will have many worries with 3 prisms and a bunch of TL EML.

    As i said before you are mistaking if you think that winning in 40k regullary has anything to do with chance....relax a little..last posts of yours are full of anger.

    to OP

    If you want rangers take falcons with eml or dakka falcons. i explained in an alaitoc list thread why.

    Hey OP, try swapping the DA squads to stormguardians with fusion guns. Major props if you win.
