    Eldar 1000pt for Doubles tournie, advice needed.

    Hey, I'm going to be partaking in an doubles tournament soon and need some advice on my lists. My partner is taking SM and as you probably guessed I am going as Eldar. However my 1000 point lists have not been overly successful so far. At 1750 to 1850 my lists do rather well however I'm having trouble adapting to 1000 pt's and I do realize that some element of co-ordination list wise is needed with my partners. So here is one list I was working on earlier. Tell me what you think please and how I could improve.

    Farseer-
    RoWar
    Fortune

    10 warlocks-
    3 destructor
    1embolden
    1enhance
    Serpent - stones- cannons

    5 Rangers

    5 Rangers

    3 Dark reapers-
    Exarch
    Crack Shot
    Tempest Launcher

    3 Dark reapers-
    Exarch
    Crack Shot
    Tempest Launcher
    Total- 1000

    I have found warlocks assaulting tanks to be rather useful as well as their ability to hold enemy units in place while I wait for a harder blow. Usually in larger games I run two smaller units instead of one large one. However I cant afford too do that here so one large one will have to do. Also Exarchs with reaper launchers are pretty spectacular against troops I have found, specially higher armoured ones with tend to cost quite a bit in any size. So as pre stated any advice or criticism is useful thanks.

    I think you'll really be struggling with this list. You don't have any anti mech to speak of really. Perhaps provide a list of the units you have available so we can help out?

    For a 1,000 point list I would run

    Farseer
    Doom
    RoWard
    Spear
    Total: 98

    5x DA
    + Serpent
    + EML
    + Stones
    Total: 190

    5x DA
    + Serpent
    + EML
    + Stones
    Total: 190

    5x DA
    + Serpent
    + EML
    + Stones
    Total: 190

    5x Dragons
    + Serpent
    + Cannons
    + Stones
    Total: 190

    2x Vyper
    + Scatter Laser
    + Underslung Cannon
    Total: 140

    Total: 998

    (I prefer walkers over Vypers. But you haven't listed as having any. So this the list to go for and save money by not buying anything).
    3 troops choices.
    3 str 8 shots + 5x str 8 meltas (dragons.)
    20 str 6 shots.
    farseer str 9 vs vehicles.

    This should serve you well I think. If you wanted you could run 2 troops choices with another serpent of dragons and sacrfice 1 str 8 shot from a vehicle for 5 meltas...

    This is the 1k list I'm going to be using for a tournament next Saturday, it's a little more lean on the troops than the mech list above, but adds some ranged light armor killing with a Falcon.

    Farseer - 90
    ---Guide, Runes of Warding (Guides Falcon for 3x S8 shots vs. light armor)

    5x Dire Avengers - 60
    Wave Serpent - 120
    ---TL Shuriken Cannon, Shuriken Cannon, Spirit Stones

    5x Dire Avengers - 60

    7 Fire Dragons - 129
    ---Exarch, Dragon's Breath Flamer, Crack Shot
    Wave Serpent - 120
    ---TL Shuriken Cannon, Shuriken Cannon, Spirit Stones

    Falcon - 190
    ---EML, Shuriken Cannon, Spirit Stones, Holo-fields

    Fire Prism - 115

    Fire Prism - 115

    Total - 999

    3x S8 shots, 15x S6 shots, 2x blasts, a flamer, 6 meltas, and a witchblade to bring to bear on the enemy. You'll need to be conservative with the Wave Serpent carrying Avengers, but otherwise strike fast, and strike hard at any long range threats, then play mop up and musical objectives with the rest of their force at 24"+ range inside your five AV12 hulls.

    Thanks for the replies, I quite Like the look of our list Fleeting. I will play test both with my partner and see how they fare thanks. Any more advice from anyone would still be useful.
