Hey i'm thinking of starting a eldar army but had a couple of questions first.
Can Phoenix Lords Join other groups besides their own aspects. And if this is the case then would their warrior powers have a effect on a unit they joined that is not of their aspect. Like could Karandras join warlocks and have them infiltrate or could Fuegan give tank hunters to wraith gaurd.
I know some things wouldnt be able to like the hawk guy deepstrikeing with a unit without wings but looking through i dont see how some of the powers mentioned above wouldnt work unless i miss read something or read over something.
Also reading about tank busting wouldnt wraith gaurd be another option other than fire dragons, they can both still go in a wave serpent and they have the same range (stands the fire pike) but it seems against heavy armors like 14's wraith gaurd would do a better job then fire dragons. Yeah you only get 5 shots instead of 10 from them (if you put in wave serpent) but your only shooting at one tank per unit anyways. Just wondering why fire dragons are the more aprorite tank busters.
Anyways any help on clarifying these would be awsome thanx.
PLs can join other units other than their aspect but can not join other aspects so no fugan in a dire avenger unit but can go in a guardian unit for example. as for granting the exarch powers to those units I don't have codex with me atm to check but I don't believe so.
Fire dragons are generally taken because you can have more for less points and if your close enough the melta of the guns makes quick work of most things, the monolith being about the only exception. only big thing the wraithguard have going for them is they are harder to kill.
Well Phoenix lords can only join their own aspect, and you can join them to units that are not an aspect but they dont give their special abilities to them so having them lead other squads purely to give them his special abilities wont work, thats a cool idea and i wish we could.
Also i think dragons are the more common tank hunters because, they are alot cheaper (points and money) than wraithguard, and and sometimes they get 2 D6 for pen and tank hunters ontop of that. Also they are AP 1 so thats +1 on damage results, meaning they can destroy even on the glance.
Hope i could help.

thanx for the input thats to bad about the PL not being able to grant powers to another unit besides their own. Jain Zar giving Counter Attack to a Harley Troupe would have been awsome.
