Welcome to Librarium Online!
ok so my friend plays eldar and i always win, but its a very close fight and i just wanna smoke him completely. we'll be playing again on sunday so can some throw down some army lists for 1000 points?
heres most likely some of the models he'll play:
8 wraith guards
15 dire avengers
some warp spiders (i think like 6 or 7 he usually plays with)
there will obviously be more because thats not 1000 points but any advice will be appreciated
what sort of squads does he put his avengers in? Their max squad size is 10. And really that list would be PRETTY close to 1k actually. So I wouldn't look into facing too much extra.
Unfortunately Necrons are reasonably inflexible at 1k.
FORTUNATELY all you really need to do is spam destroyers at him to win. Their gun is pretty much perfect for killing off eldar units. I mean, you sound like you're doing well enough on your own, but that's what I'd tell you to do if you want to be mean (which I don't condone).
For the warp spyders though...dunno what to tell ya, that 3+ armor and they can escape combat.
Alzer's advice is solid, Destroyers are perfect Eldar killing machines and you sound like you've got the rest of the tactics in the bag. What I'd do to counter Warp Spiders though is treat them just like any other MEQ: take them down with volume of fire. A Monolith would be very handy because if that pieplate hits, that's them gone.
k thanks guys, i ordered 2 destroyers off of ebay yesterday, hopefully they get here before sunday afternoon then i think ill be good
if they get here i think this will be my army
lord with destroyer body and orb
and maybe i might switch out 10 warriors with 10 flayed ones, if i decide to buy them by then.
I played a test game against Eldar recently and Flayed Ones proved to be quite good, managed to destroy a 5 man unit of Wraith Guards in a couple of turns! Yay them!
So, just try to get them into close combat and their fragility will help you a lot! XD

ok thanks alot guys ill update you if i kill him
Not convinced on a monolith in a 1000pts.
have you thought of Immortals? Their gun wounds the aspect warriors on a 2+ at 24". For the price of a monolith you could get a fair few.
the problem is that i dont have the models at the moment and i only get my next pay check next friday.
Fair enough then. What you have is what you have.
Best of luck.
