Welcome to Librarium Online!
Last week I entereed a tournament with my old space marine army. This is all the games I played and the wins/losses for me.
Me Vs Chaos space marines- win
Me Vs Space marines- win
Me Vs Space marines- loss
Me Vs Space marines- draw
As you may have noticed there are losts of space marine players in my area and after starting my Eldar army, I was wondering what would be the best weapons/squads to combat that fact. The Next Tournament is in two months so I need your response.
This is my current army list-
Ten man dire avengers squad with exarch.
Farseer (that I won at the tounament)
Marine killers are pretty easy to spot in the eldar codex. A list tailored to a specific opponent lacks versatility but if that's the only opponent you will be facing then why not?
Well not much here can hold it's own against marines but Dire avengers can really ruin their day especially when using bladestorm, doom, and guide in combination. This mix will mow down about 10 marines or at the very least make them take saves on those important and expensive models. Wraithguard will also be somewhat effective and rangers will be able to hold objectives until your opponent gets right in your face to assault or flame you.
Take your pick... These guys are amazing at what they do, all of them. Fire dragons will melt an entire squad of marines, banshees will cut through them like a chainsaw through wet toilet paper but you may need doom to help them out, and anything else will do great just make sure you learn how it will work best.
Warp spiders can really ruin their day. Nothing is more annoying to marines than not being able to catch something even with their own fast attack. I can see shining spears working well in this situation as well but they would be used as more of a hammer than a harassment unit.
Load up here because even marines fear our heavy support! Wraithlords will tear through squads and tanks with little or no opposition but watch out for power fists. Dark reapers will tear through marines and can even shred entire squads in cover thanks to the exarch and his wonderful abilities. Fire Prisms are wonderful but if you are going to take one you must take two and I recommend a third just to make them cry all the harder.
We have an amazing amount of things that take away marine's advantage of armor. Your opponents will feel like they were caught with their pants down. Enjoy!

Meet My Autarch
Dekendo hit the nail right on the head there. I think generally speaking we have plenty of units that can either drown them in enough shots they can't make enough saves, or punch through their precious power armor altogether. You can't overstate the super-killyness of a reaper exarch with a tempest launcher, crack shot, and Guide support
