    Old player returned

    I used to play Eldar quite a lot, but recently switched to Sisters. With the release of the new codex, I have decided to bring out my old models and rejoin my eldar kin. Tell me what you think.

    Note, this is 1500 pts

    HQ

    Farseer +80pts
    -Doom
    -Jetbike

    Elites

    Striking Scorpions +175pts
    -8 Scorpions
    -Exarch
    -Scorpion Claw
    -Shadow Strike

    Fire Dragons +96
    -6 Dragons
    -(Mounted in Falcon)

    Troops

    Dire Avengers +234
    -8 Models
    -Exarch
    -Blade Storm
    -Wave Serpent
    -Cannon

    Dire Avengers +234
    -8 Models
    -Exarch
    -Blade Storm
    -Wave Serpent
    -Cannon

    Dire Avengers +234
    -8 Models
    -Exarch
    -Blade Storm
    -Wave Serpent
    -cannon

    Fast Attack

    Swooping Hawks +120
    -5 Hawks
    -Exarch
    -Sky Leap

    Shining Spears +155
    -4 Spears
    -Exarch
    -Withdraw


    Heavy Support

    Falcon +135
    -Missile Launcher

    My basic plan is to use the Hawks, Dragon, and Falcon to attack tanks. Wave Serpents target infantry to thin them down before I assault. Dire Avengers do their bladestorm/assault move they are famous for (gotta practice to get this right). Scorpions and Spears, especially spears, target the most dangerous opponents. The farseer rushes forward to DOOM the unit the Scorpions decide need to die. I do this because they get a LOT of attacks, so re-rolling for them is probably a better idea then for the Spears.

    Tell me what you think, I'd love to go footslogger but with Eldar speed is everything.

    hq- this is fine.

    elites- this is fine.

    troops- the only suggestion i have is to give them at least spirit stones, so you can keep them moving and keep them only getting glancing hits. I usually give them vectored engines as well but they are not needed.

    fast attack- hawks look fine.

    shining spears- look good as well.

    Heavy support- This falcon needs some upgrades or needs to be taken out. The usualy holo fields, vectored engines and spirit stones make it practically indestructable, this is alot of points however. So at least spirit stones so you can keep him moving.

    What do you reccomend I drop?

    I was thinking of reducing the avengers size, but at this point I might as well drop the squad.

    I may drop the Hawks, add bright lances and upgrades to the vechiles to make up for it, and get an Autarch instead. Give him mandiblasters, a jet bike, and the spear thing. Stick him with the spears, and drop the Farseer as well.

    What do you think?
