    2,500 pt Eldar List (New Codex) Need help fleshing it out

    Greetings denizens of the webway, I am building a list for a grudge match fight. This list is built specifically to take out marines, (as the marine player is kitted out to fight Eldar) Normally I build Take-All-Comers lists, but for a grudge match... not so much.

    Anyway, on to the List

    High Seer Ulthiam Hain (Uses Eldrad Ulthuan stats)

    Warlock Azerath
    -Destructor

    Warlock Metrion
    -Enhance

    Warlock Zynthos
    -Embolden

    Warlock Taolathien
    -Desctructor

    Spiritseer Aryana

    Dire Avengers
    10 Avengers
    Exarch Thanatil
    -Diresword/Pistol
    -Bladestorm
    Wave Serpent

    -Vectored Engines

    Dire Avengers
    10 Avengers
    Exarch Ciara

    Farseer Kith-Kanan
    -Runes of Witnessing
    -Runes of Warding
    -Spirit Stones

    -Fortune

    Howling Banshees
    10 Banshees
    Exarch Merithianne
    -Executioner
    Wave Serpent
    -Twin Linked Scatter Lasers

    Falcon
    -Holo-Fields
    -Spirit Stones

    Howling Banshees
    6 banshees
    Exarch Shandielle
    -Triskele

    --- --- ---
    The following are things I am thinking of adding to the list
    --- --- ---

    Swooping Hawks
    10 Hawks
    Exarch Monaire
    -Sunrifle
    -Skyleap
    -Intercept

    Swooping Hawks
    10 Hawks
    Exarch Monaire
    -Sunrifle
    -Skyleap
    -Intercept

    -OR-

    Shining Spears
    5 Spears
    Exarch Tharlion
    -Star Lance
    -Withdraw

    -Or-

    Fire Prism

    Wraithguard
    5 Wraithguard
    Warlock Anfiel
    -Conceal
    Wave Serpent
    -Twin Linked Shuriken Cannon
    (Must Replace A banshee squad)

    Also contemplating adding some Warlocks to the Seer Council (I know it's not a 'real' council)
    And possibly another Dire Avenger Squad (with/without Transport)
    Wraithlord.

    I have 334 points to work with. And I have enough models to field (or proxy) anything in the Eldar Codex. (Possible exception of Harlequins)

    Thank you for your help!

    I think you have a problem here, half your army is too fast for the other half, What is the council going to support if if theres nothing there?

    I think you either need to speed up your seers (jetbikes) and drop the warlocks or slow down the rest of the army, which would mean dropping the serpents and beefing it out with some guardians.

    Some other points:

    Drop the second squad of banshees, the one with 6, and swap them with dragons, then mount them in the falcon.

    Lances on the serpents, utilise the cheap twin linked option.

    pathfinders? - isn't there something better to spend these points on? guardians, avengers?

    I think overall you need to beef it up a bit and this way possibly have two parts to the army, the fast and the slow part, maybe give one seer a bike and have him fly with spears and banshees, give him mind war and doom, make him offensive. then have a strong fire base of guardians, avengers, wraithlords, supported by eldrad.

    Hope this helps.
