Hello all, this is my first post on Librariumonline after being a member a week (!)
I'd really like opinions on this eldar army I'm thinking of starting, hailing from the craftworld of Alhagoneth (I have a bit of fluff but am still to settle on a colourscheme)
Autarch, jetbike, lance, fusion gun, mandiblasters-140pts
8 Avengers, exarch w/2 shuricats-113
6 Banshees, exarch w/mirrorblades-118
Waveserpent w/ twin bright lances-130
3 Shining spears, exarch w/withdraw-132
5 Swooping hawks, exarchw/ sunrifle-132
Vyper w/ 2 shuricannon-60
The force is supposed to be a compact, elite raiding force, hence no guardians or heavier vehicles untill 1500-2000 pts.

ok.... I have to say that altogether I do not think it vibes well.Good setup here, feel free to drop the fusion gun if points are needed elsewhere.HQ
Autarch, jetbike, lance, fusion gun, mandiblasters-140ptsThey are so much more effective as pathfinders. I take them with the pathfinder upgrade or not at all.5 Rangers-95Should really be a 10 man unit and are not nearly as effective as they could be with bladestorm.8 Avengers, exarch w/2 shuricats-113The banshees should be at least 8 man to retain efficiency after taking some casualties and the mirror swords are not as usefull as the higher strength offered through the executioner. The point cost on the serpent is off by 5.6 Banshees, exarch w/mirrorblades-118
Waveserpent w/ twin bright lances-130the exarch here should have a star lance and they do better at larger unit sizes.3 Shining spears, exarch w/withdraw-132I literally loathe hawks, they are not nearly as effective as spiders or really anything else in the entire dex imo.5 Swooping hawks, exarchw/ sunrifle-132good.Vyper w/ 2 shuricannon-60generally it is not a good idea to mix weapon on war walkers, all scatter lasers or shuriken cannons is the way to go.Warwalker w/scatterlaser+starcannon-70
Overall I would drop the hawks entirely in order to make some of the changes I suggested above. I would also switch the banshees and their transport for an eight man infiltrating scorpion squad. Use the extra points to get a wraithlord with a bright lance. This will last a good bit longer than a lone skimmer will and can fire up until it dies.
