don't you mean warlocks. remember, you can put these guys in the falcon.3xFarseers
1xEnhance 90pts =175ptspersonally i don't like reapers. i'm sure many other eldar players would disagree. i mean i feal they are way to expensive.Dark reapers
you are lacking any sort of close combat eliment. maybe use the points on some scorpions instead.
anyway, pretty good list. just needs some minor tweaking.
hope i helped. or maybe im just crazy:wacko:
That is not dead which may eternal lie,
for in strange aeons even death may die.
Couple things. First I'd drop the warlocks. True they kind of make the farseer a CC unit, but they just aren't a good value. They're also a bit pricy in real money. Also, while I don't want to explain it all, there are some weaird rules about psychers in falcons so you don't really want your farseer in there.
Second don't take a bright lance on a falcon. Instead take S6 weapon, that way you can fire it while moving. Also you will definitly want to trick it out with holofield and spirit stones. Starengines, and the shuri cannon upgrade are nice options too but you absolutly want the holofield and stones.
Also when you buy your models I'd look on e-bay for the guardians they took a pretty heavy nerf in the new codex and I expect the marked to be flooded with them at discount prices.
After those changes you'll have some points left over. I suggest you buy something that the falcon can carry to good effect. I'd suggest six fire dragons to get some solid anti armor in your force, or you could go harlequins, which can kinda do anti armor with their fusion pistols and rending, and give the guardians a bright lance.
i agree with sunnyside that you should drop the warlocks. i find the only use for them is with a guardian squad with conceal or wraithguard for their wraithsight.
personally i really like reapers and when they are guided you have a great chance of getting at least 75% of their shots to hit and with a good strength they will probably wound as well.
your farseer i tend to field with spirit stones, runes of witnessing, Doom and Guide and sit him with my DR. Guide the reapers and doom anything that gets close.
give the scatter laser to the falcon so that it can move 12" and still fire all its weapons as well as spirit stones and holo fields to increase it survivability and if possible vectored engines if you have the points.
with your guardians i would add a warlock with conceal to help them survive a little longer and also give them a brightlance or EML for anti armour.
Hope this helps
Thanks everyone for the help so far, I have altered the list a bit.
Spirit Stones =120pts
Scatter laser =105pts
1xExarch: Blade storm =147pts
Spirit stones = 175pts
1xExarch: Fast shot = 172pts
I have 31 pts left I could throw in a Warlock w/conceal into the guardians if I drop the stones of the falcon. Or I could buy the EML or BL for the Guardians, Any ideas on what to spend 31pts on?
i would possibly even drop the falcon aswell and then put in two war walkers with a scatter laser and EML which is 130pts which would leave u with 76pts. then you can take a warlock and brightlance with your guardians which is and extra 55pts taking into account the points already spent on the scatter laser and with the remaining 21pts chuck an exta couple of guardians in to increase the meat shield of your heavy weapon. and if you take war walkers then divide them up into two units so that they can cover more of the board. dropping the falcon is just a personal choice as with the war walkers you can put them into the open in deployment and then scout move them into cover if the need arises. or if you are using escalation you have heavy weapons on the board from the beginning of the game.
That list looks good. Use your remaining points to get vectored engines on the falcon and a missile launcher on the reaper exarch. Or 2 more guardians instead of vectored engines.
With a pulse laser and fast shooting missile launcher you should have enough anti-tank at 750 points. Your next investment going up to 1000 points should be going into a bright lance wave serpent though.
Use your falcon to shoot up enemies and stay close to your avengers. Once you are within 18" to shoot you are at risk of being assaulted and killed. Use tank shock and simply sitting in the way with your falcon to avoid this.
Good Luck with eldar.

If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
