ok then, your points costs are fairly accurate, a little off on the autarch and banshees, but not bad. Anyway, here goes
not bad at all for not having the codex, It could use some work, (whose army doesn't). the biggest concern I have is the low number of models on the field. Being a chaos thousand sons player, I know what it feels like to be out numbered. In an army like eldar, you really don't have to be. with 28 models and the same number of wounds (and four armor values) you don't make it hard for your enemy to decide what to shoot at. try and invest more points in units such as dire avengers, and the like
I guess I will take out the falcon and add more troops, dire avengers i suppose.
I have old dire avengers..would i be able to use them like the new dire avengers? Like same weapons and such.
hq-what the heck, where is this guys weapons? Lol.
Elites- Fire dragons do not need an exarch, and if you do take one they defintly do not want that dragons breath flamer. The fusion gun is better. With the new rules on melta weapons just standard dragons with fusion guns will take down any tank.
Banshees, executioner is a must here. you dont want to be attacking at base strength. Consider the other exarch power.
Troops- agreed from above post. need dire avengers or guardians with a platform and warlock with conceal.
Fast attack- no shuriken cannons on these bad boys. Mainly cause normal troops gus can take out vypers, and most normal troops guns go 24'.
heavy support- as said before you probably dont need 2 tanks at 1000 pts. I would drop the prism I have alot more luck with a falcon.
As for the falcon, I'd ad vectored engines, spirit stones, and holofields and make sure to move, so your tank is practically indestructable.
wrathlord- looks good, i'd probably tkae a starcannon though.
Ok, thanks I will keep that in mind when working out the new list..
Do you think the Howling Banshees will be alright without a transport?
BTW, I am mostly playing against armies with lots of troops.
banshees will be allright without a transport if there is alot of cover.
