    Building a Biel-Tan [1000] point army

    I’m building a Biel-Tan army and planning to get it up to at least 1500 points, I start at a 1000 army using some of the models I have already painted.

    HQ

    Farseer 89
    -Singing spear
    -Shurikien Pistol
    -Guide

    Troops

    Fire Dragons x9 288
    -Wave Serpent
    -Spirit Stone
    -Bright Lance

    Dire Avengers x9 243
    -Wave Serpent
    -Spirit Stone
    -Bright Lance

    Dark Reapers x3 111

    Fast Attack

    Swooping Hawks x5 157
    -Excerch
    -Sustained Assault
    -Web of Skulls

    Elite

    Vyper 65
    -Star Cannon

    Heavy Support

    Supoprt Weapon Battery 45
    -Shadow Weaver

    Total: 998

    I have all the models and painted except, 2wave serpents (I’m working on one) 4 fire dragons and 2 dire avengers.

    I know that maybe the dark reapers is a bad chose, but I don’t really know what to swap them for. Also I trying to use as many of the models that I already have pained.

    Any Idée’s?

    You could drop the Dark Reapers and the Hawks for Warp Spiders. They'll keep up with your transports and hit hard.
    Everything I have told you, even this, is a lie.

    Then I need 12 warp spiders or so... maybe I start with 5 and swap them for the reapers, I really love the looks of my hawks.

    If there are alternatives I like to have different units and not use the same twice.

    Is 5 Warp Spiders ok to use or is the number to low?

    How do you use cc aspect affective in wave serpents? I the 4th edition, you cant charge out of vehicles like you did in the 3rd edition. You lose one assault face when you have to just wait.

    And scorpions looks to slow if they are moving by them self.

    Am I wrong about this what is you opinion, I have 5 painted banshees and one unpainted exarch. So I can get for more and paint them up later.

    I use Dire Avengers because they are good agenst low save guys like IG, and dragons are good agenst Marines.

    i never sed nothing bout wave serpents as they can fleet and have a decent armour save they don't really need it (maybe mine survive cus the rest of my army is mucho nasty) and striking scorps can infiltrate.

    ok that explains it... I think if I put banshees in my list with no serpent they will be shoot to death really fast. And scorpions cant infiltrate al the time, but I’m thinking about them.

    Have you posted any army list? I’m interested to know what you use with your Banshees to make them survive.

    Thanks for the help

    most eldar generals and stats will tell you scorps are better than banshees. And s8 scorp can kill tanks, and s4 scorps can kill speeders and other a10 (i love shooting down landspeeders with mandiblasters, just gotta laugh)

    all in all, looks like an ok list, just a low model count. Your troops pack a punch but are certainly too fragile to survive long if left un supported.
    My armies:
    16,000+ of Eldar (only need flyers)
    7,000+ of Nids (want heirophant)
    6,000+ of Space Marines (need rever titan)
    4,400+ of Cygnar (all models for the faction)
    1,500+ of Legion (just started)
