Hello out there
I'm an old 40k player thinking of making a comeback from a 2 year break. Now, I've always liked eldar models and the other day I looked through the eldar codex and that got me thinking and prompted a few questions.
I'm was thinking of fielding a horde of infantry, several guardian units to screen several dire avengers units along with an Avatar for morale and counter assault, a farseer for some nasty psychic tricks (Doom is scary!).
Maybe some striking scorpions and howling banshees on foot to counter assault or go flanking, and either a couple of warwalkers or few wraithlords to provide firesupport.
The above list is basically all the models I love in the eldar army, the only ones I truly hate are the Harlequins (which is sad, because I've been told that they are the perfect counter assault for a footslogging army).
So, before I invest a large amount of money and time, is the above mentioned army competitive?

The fearless ability is almost a hinderance now as you take additional wounds and for 5+ armour saves thats pretty much like losing another 3 to 5 guys after assualt. I would actually take an autarch or phoenix lord over the big burning man as I find its better to run away if you know you can come back another time and unload shuriken death into them but thats just my two cents. I think your list can be competitve and be very fun to play. Horde armies always freak people out.
