I have a bunch a jetbikes lying around, and I am thinking of doing a combination of jetbike/ mech eldar. Am I doomed from the start, or can I guide this concept to excelence
You're doomed. Your best bet is to just hold on to them and wait for a new codex.
Otherwise copy Fritz's army and go for gold (being aware that he wins by being lucky a lot)
My compiled thoughts blog.
If someone posts something helpful +rep them
uhmmm Sorry I run Saim Hann eldar and honestly you can use them competitively it's harder but can be done. Jetbikes work GREAT with skimmers with star engines and they ferry vypers along very well. Bikes can give vypers cover saves/vypers can block assults etc etc. Honestly it takes a while to get used to but Saim Hann Eldar can be quiet a pain... obviously Grey Knight Psycannon spam it something I'm still looking to stop...
Out of interest, Chapterhouse do a very nice conversion kit for a jetbike mounted Farseer & Warlock.

Jetbike councils are just rock hard vehicle killers. And I think jetbikes get a bad rap because they're so expensive people field them in little squads of three and then complain when they run off the board on the first casualty. The DA squad+serpent they're replacing was pretty expensive, put a decently tough squad out there and I think it has some solid potential.
The new way warlocks handle psychic powers where they essentially just have a heavy flamer instead of making rolls and banging into anti-psycher stuff helps too.
I think the key to using them with mech eldar would be using your skimmers as portable cover, allowing you to fire away with your bikes without getting assaulted (and hopefully getting cover saves to boot).
Thanks for all of your help! I'm going to put together a list tonight and post it tomorrow, hopefully I can use it effectively
nothing like inter species cooperation!
