The title says it all- I am curious to see what points arise from this. Plus the idea of a foot eldar list seems more appealing to me, but this might go to some light tournaments. Just wondering if I would actually have a chance.

I haven't faced footdar in a long time, but I've faced a mix of mech and foot with a mech-seer list recently and it wasn't pretty. The guy was close to breaking down into tears (it was in a tournament and he was wiped out in his last 2 games) in between telling me how much more fluffy and fun his army was. Metagame has ensured that the only footdar that can compete nowadays is wraithwall.
No. As long as you do not have reliable survivability, AT(no the wraithlords are not enough) and mobility you cannot compete

can work for games with your mates but Footdar will get tabled now that everything is mech mech mech. Plus a lot of the missions are objective based and speed is key, without transport you miss out on that key factor.
Well, while I agree with the basic points above, you did throw that "ever" in there. So two points on that.
First, 'Ard Boyz rules are the exception in tourneys. Usually there are other scores such as army appearence, sportsmanship, army composition, and other such things. Footdar do much better in those sorts of scores than mechdar, and this can more than compensate for its weaker tabletop performance when it comes to the final rankings.
Second, it isn't like we're in a fixed playing environemnt. From when I started in 3rd edition up until 5th edition various footdar builds were good, and new rules are coming out all the time. You never know, maybe those new forgeworld modles will be the bomb once they're official. And, since GW tends to like to nerf whatever everyone is using so they buy new stuff, I expect vehicles to take a hard fall whenever 6th hits. That'll probalby be in a year or so. So if you're new to Eldar, and take your time putting together an army, than by the time your footdar is done it might well be the winning build, and any waveserpents you buy now will be next years paperweights.

If it is true that flyers will be the focus in 6th, then will the Hawks get a bump and be more useful you think? Should i get a unit just in case?
As for Eldar, I think the shelving would depend a whole lot on what we gain in the flier/anti flier department as well as what other armies get. Maybe Guardian defenders will be popular again for relatively cheap missile launchers with a lot of wounds that can be spread out to mitigate pie plates.
