    2000 points first try at eldar list

    Ok here is what I was thinking. Just got the dex earlier today so correct me if I did something wrong.

    HQ = Phoenix Lord ( Asurmen ) = 230

    Elites = Striking Scorpions ( 8 man ) = 170 points
    - exarch = chainsabres, stalker, shadowstrike
    Elites = Howling Banshees ( 8 man ) = 310 points
    - exarch = mirrorswords, war shout
    - wave serpent = twin-linked bright lances, vectored engines
    Elites = Howling Banshees ( 8man ) = 310 points
    - exarch = mirrorswords, war shout
    - wave serpent = twin-linked bright lances, vectored engines

    Troops = Dire Avengers ( 10 man ) = 275 points
    - wave serpent = twin-linked starcannons, vectored engines, spirit stones
    Troops = Rangers ( 8 man ) = 192 points
    - pathfinders
    Troops = Rangers ( 8 man ) = 192 points
    - pathfinders

    Heavy Support = Fire Prism = 160 points
    - holo-fields, spirit stones
    Heavy Support = Fire Prism = 160 points
    - holo-fields, spirit stones

    Total = 1999 points

    Any advice on the list would be really help full as my current army is daemonhunter ( grey knights mainly ) and I dont know much of the eldar at this time or what forms a solid list for them. Asurmen will be in the wave serpent with the dire avengers if anyone is wondering.

    It's a very good first list. A few suggestions:
    - I generally find the executioner to be a much better weapon to put on a banshee exarch since you'll get a few strength 5 attacks.
    - War shout is unreliable seing as how Howling banshees are usually attacking MEQs which are usually ld 9 or 10 or even fearless. I would drop those two upgrades. (-10)
    - Your Dire Avenger squad is dying for an exarch, You may want to drop a single pathfinder then add the exarch and bladestorm(any additional exarch upgrades you want can be added if you drop one more pathfinder).

    as per hsin - executioner by far best weapon for banshee exarch as it deals with banshees chief failing - lack of strength

    Other things- upgrades for serpents:
    ALL serpents should take spirit stones
    serpents carrying assault squads (banshees) should take vectored engines
    Therefore drop the VE off the DA serpents and make sure all serpents have spirit stones
    Everything you have been told is a lie!

    any reason why Asurmen is being taken? Sure he is the most survivable of the PL but he is the least offensive as well. I actually rank him one of the lowest along with Baharoth. If I were you I would switch him out for yriel as he still has a decent save but is absolutely amazing in CC as well. Plus, he frees up another 75 points.

    well I didnt have an exarch in the dire avengers squad since asurmen was gonna be in it. Here is the new list.

    HQ = Prince Yriel of Iyanden = 155 points

    HQ = Farseer = 135 points
    - doom, runes of warding, runes of witnessing, jet bike

    Elites = Stiking Scorpions ( 8 man ) = 170 points
    - exarch = chainsabres, stalker, shadowstrike

    Elites = Howling Banshees ( 8 man ) = 315 points
    - exarch = mirrorswords
    - wave serpent = twin-linked bright lances, vectored engines, spirit stones

    Elites = Howling Banshees ( 8 man ) = 315 points
    - exarch = mirrorswords
    - wave serpent = twin-linked bright lances, vectored engines, spirit stones

    Troops = Dire avengers ( 8 man ) = 138 points
    - exarch = power weapon, shimmershield, bladestorm

    Troops = Dire Avengers ( 8 man ) = 138 points
    - exarch = power weapon, shimmershield, bladestorm

    Troops = Rangers ( 6 man ) = 144 points
    - pathfinders

    Troops = Rangers ( 6 man ) = 144 points
    - pathfinders

    Heavy Support = Fire Prism = 170
    - holo-fields, spirit stones, shuriken cannon

    Heavy Support = Fire Prism = 170
    - holo-fields, spirit stones, shuriken cannon

    Total = 1994 points

    I am keeping the mirriorswords just cause I like the model more and I am willing to take the small decrease in squad effectiveness for it.

    The runes of warding are only good if you face alot of enemy psykers. For an all somers list, I say drop them. The runes of witnessing I have found, make it easier to suffer perils of the warp in which case you lose your seer due to insta kill. I would say drop both of these and try to squeeze the points for spirit stones and maybe an offensive power like eldritch storm. Doom + storm can be pretty sweet and storm on top of a vehicle has a chance to put the rear armour your way.

    Elites = Stiking Scorpions ( 8 man ) = 170 points
    - exarch = chainsabres, stalker, shadowstrike
    This may be another thing where you like the model better but generally the claw is the best weapon for the SS exarch.

    Otherwise good!
