    Eldar GT list building (1750)

    You have sown you sins across the galaxy...now reap the whirlwind

    Having done fairly well at the Vegas GT, I am feeling confident that I can take top 3 of next years.
    I am going to be rolling with my Eldar. My previous lists were based around the models that I have on hand. Now I am willing to be far more broad minded since I have a year to create the list and get it converted and painted.
    I am okay with cheese, but an army list for me must be fun to play or I will not be able to do well with it.

    I have the Forge World model and will be giving this guy a super spiffy paint just. Hence he is something of a must for the list.

    Farseer Tanalesi (120)
    Spirit Stones
    Doom
    Guide
    Your standard support Farseer. I played an Eldar player at the GT and got to learn just how devastating Doom can be.

    =Elites=
    Howling Banshee's x 8 (260)
    Exarch Konahy
    Executioner or Mirror Swords
    Wave Sepent
    Spirit Stone / Shuriken Cannon
    Probably want to trade the Executioner for Mirror Blades and have them charge Doomed units. For now though I don't have the model and the points are the same.

    =Troops=
    Dire Avengers x 10 (147)
    Exarch Weylund
    Blade Storm

    Dire Avengers x 10 (147)
    Exarch
    Blade Storm

    Simple and straight forward. I know that with Shimmer Shield and defend these guys can tar pit and such but I don't think they need to multi role. Just shoot the hell out of something, fleet and repeat. If I have 5 points left over I will give the Exarchs an additional catapult for the modeling option.

    =Fast Attack=
    Warp Spiders x 7 (186)
    Exarch Niccain
    Twin Death Spinners
    Withdraw

    Warp Spiders x 7 (186)
    Exarch Tyrrilion
    Twin Death Spinners
    Withdraw

    Pretty standard and reliable, Warp Spiders are some of the bext anti infantry (all types) and anti light armor in the list. Withdraw will let me get an expensive unit out of a bad situation if need be.

    =Heavy Support=
    Fire Prism (160)
    Holo Field / Spirit Stones

    Fire Prism (160)
    Holo Field / Spirit Stones

    I am really digging the Fire Prism over the Falcon these days. I know the debate still rages but after so many years as a Marine or Chaos, I just can't get my head around a BS3 tank. Also I think I have found a way to get a light into the Prisms main gun.

    Dark Reapers x 5 (175)
    Considering at the last GT I faced down against Marine THREE TIMES, bringing a solid MEQ killer doesn't seem like too bad of an idea. Also, though Worsle is unimpressed with them, I like them a lot. Seriously multi role, they smash MEQ's but Orks and Bugs don't want to eat that many S5 shots either.

    Total: 1696

    If the points limit stays the same next year it will be 1750. So I have a 54 points to work with.
    Plenty of room for moving and shifting. The only thing that has to make it into the list is the FW Avatar.
    Alright community, help me win the next GT!

    Nice list... very nice.


    but try and remove something to fit in at least 2 vyper ( shuriken canon & Scatter laser). Fast anti infantry.

    cheer.
    comment and critics are the best source for improvement

    with 2 squads of spiders you should be fine here.

    Over all I like the list. However you are a little light on the ranged AT, relying on your prisms here. I recommend taking the extra points and giving the serpent TL BL to help out in this respect. any extra points after this use to grab another banshee. Also, go with the executioner over the swords, the extra strength really helps.

    the mech list isn't too bad but you should change out the EML on the falcon for a lower strength weapon as it can't move and fire both the EML and the puls laser.

    Also, you are light on bodies but this may work to your advantage.

    think you are tryiong to fit a bit much in, the spider exarchs could use withdraw and you could use warlock with embolden in bike squads
    Everything you have been told is a lie!

    I just read the Errata that says I can't use Doom from within a vehicle (I had that messed up) that changes what i want to do for my HQ's quite a bit.

    As a GT list, it has to do as much as it possibly can to account for any mission or enemy. Though I might be doing it wrong.

    Another quick idea...


    =HQ=
    Farseer (113)

    Jetbike
    Shining Spear

    =Elite=
    Howling Banshee's x 8 (260)

    Executioner
    Wave Sepent
    Spirit Stone / Shuriken Cannon

    Howling Banshee's x 8 (260)
    Exarch
    Executioner
    Wave Sepent
    Spirit Stone / Shuriken Cannon

    =Troops=
    Jetbike x 3 (76)
    Shuriken Cannon

    Jetbike x 3 (76)
    Shuriken Cannon

    Dire Avengers x 9 (140)
    Exarch
    Dual Catapults
    Blade Storm

    Dire Avengers x 8 (12
    Exarch
    Dual Catapults
    Blade Storm

    =Fast Attack=
    Warp Spiders x 6 (132)

    =Heavy Support=
    Fire Prism (160)
    Holo Field / Spirit Stones

    Fire Prism (160)
    Holo Field / Spirit Stones

    Total: 1750

    I am really having trouble with how expensive it is to transport Banshee's. I am thinking of changing the whole tactical footprint, going with massive shooty power and just using banshee's as a counter puncher.

    I mean 520 points sucked up into two squads that aren't terminators...yeesh.

    I don't know about the new list. using two seers kitted exactly the same is something that I would never do. You may want to consider:

    1. Drop the second seer

    2. get the first seer spirit stones and fortune

    3. combine the 2 units of bikes

    4. use the extra points to fill out the banshees / DA and get exarchs for the spiders

    By doing the first three steps you will be able to fortune your bikes and give them much higher survivability and thereby increasing the number of wounds protecting your seer from enemy fire.

    The one doom should be just fineas long as you play smart and concentrate your fire. (example, doom a unit, DA bladestorm doomed unit, banshees charge doomed unit)
