Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hello All, I again need more help. I have a fairly good amount of eldar now but I need help figuring out the best combinations to run.
So far i have,
1.5 avenger squads (total 15)
2 heavy platform guardian squads (one with a scatter laser the other with missle launcher)
2 war walkers (both with scatter laser and missle launcher)
phoenix lord (maungen Ra)
1 dark reaper squad (7 reapers 1 exarch)
1 harlequin squad 5 normal 1 exarch
1 squad of 10 swooping hawks with exarch
1 squad of fire dragons 4+ exarch
Wave Serpent normally weilding TL catapults and a scatter laser
Falcon (TL missle launcher.)
1 Squad striking scorpions with exarch
1 squad warp spiders
seer council 1 farseer + 3 warlocks
2 extra single warlocks that i usually attach with my guardians
1 stand alone farseer (usually run near the walkers for their guid power)
So all in all using them all i am now well over 2000 points when everyone is decently but not over equipped.
I have the opportunity to play in two tournaments and one is 1000 points the other is 1500 but with what i have im not sure what a good configuration would be for each.
Please help i cant figure out a decent army for 1500 can hold up against chaos. plus the 1000 point one is against tau.
thanks for all your help!!!!!!!
alright well for the 1500 point list i think this army will work well against chaos.
hq: farseer with fortune spirit stones and doom 130p
5 warlocks with enhance and embolden 145p
1 farseer with guide and runes of warding 90p
Troops: 10 dire avengers exarch has power weapon and shimmersheild 147p
10 gaurdians with S.L 95p
10 gaurdians with EML 100p
5 dire avengers 60p
1 waveserpent w/ scatterlasers + spirit stones 120p
Elites: 6 harliquins with kisses shadow seer and troupe master has power weapon 182p
10 scorpions exach has power claw, shadowstrike, and stalker 217p
Heavy support: 5 dark reapers w/ exach has crack shot and tempest launcher 217p
ok so in this army you have good CC tank hunting( seer council and harliquins) assuming they bring thier normal arnament of tanks, also you should have no problem dealing with their infantry( dark reapers, scorpians, and harliquins) it is also a common thing in tournaments to bring a chaos sorcerer hence runes of warding. overall this is the most effective list for what you have against chaos and that will do well in any mission type. hope my list and advice helps you in the tournament.
PS: as for the tau list well you will probably face fire warrior heavy armies, and to be honest i have no clue how to beat those armies. well anyway good luck!

Thank you. But I only have 5 scorpions. that is one squad. but I can substitute warp spiders or such. No war walker? that supprised me.
First off use all dire avengers. If you can put an exarch in each squad. You can either take squad of 10 & 5 or 7 & 8. The Exarch needs Bladestorm, Defend, and either a assault 4 SC or the power weapon with shimmer shield, depending on if they will be shooting or HTH. Second take the Wratihlord. He is great in low point games because few people expect something of his size in a game like this and they will take few weapons that can hurt him. Nothing S4 or below can even wound him. Give him the wraithsword and either a Starcannon or a Brightlance. He will be a beast in HTH. The farseer with Doom, guide, spirit stones and a couple of warlocks. No more than two because they are just cannon fodder. Keep him close to your DA. Next take the SS. They are monsters in HTH against horde armies that are fearless. 10 SS will get 40 attacks if they charge. Take an exarch with Shadowstrike and hold them in reserve. For armies like SM and chaos you can bring in this squad behind their main line and take out all support squads. For horde armies you can flank their larger squads and slow the whole army down before it gets to you. You need dark reapers with an exarch and I like to take fast shot with an eldar missle launcher. This way you get two shots either to take out a tank or drop 2 blast templates to kill horde. This will probably max out your 1000 point army. Since Tau cannot handle their own in HTH the scorpions and wraithlord should be able to walk through the units. Just take stuff to kill tanks.
