    I like to use reapers to cut large parts of the battle field out and create channels of firepower backed up by guardian squads.

    scorpians are durable and quite diverse in their potential - infiltrate, haywire, 3+ armour etc. etc.

    Banshees are good if you can get them into combat...

    Firdragons I enjoy to use but are quite limited and have to be used with expertise to get their points back....

    pathfinders rock my world

    Uhmz dark reapers and pathfinders aint elites besides you cant even take pathfinders in a normal eldar army.

    The ebst cheap elite are the scorpions imho. They got better armour can stalk the opponent forces with infiltrating exarch can have biting claw they got S4 that makes them good against ordes such as gaunts. And there mandiblasters are more usefull then you think!
    Banshees are ok vs armoured units like sm etc but the downside is you n to roll 5's to wound them.


    However with that statement out of the way, I would say listen to ArchonBjorn. He has a really good tendency to not say stupid things and give bad advice.

    Scorpions, but if your using beil-tan, then it's reapers.

    Now I've got that feeling once again

    He said non expensive troops i think 37 points is a bit to much?
    he also said elites so it cant be biel tan.

    I would say Scorpions because of their versatility.

    Survivable (3+ save)
    Good in CC (lots of attacks)
    Anit-Tank (Hyawire Grenades)
    Fast-ish (Infiltrate)
    Good Exarch (S9 Power Weapon, or lots of wounds.)

    Warp Spiders come in a close 2nd.
    You cannot win, for to fight us is to give us power.

    warp spiders are cool and wraith guards for your wraithlord, fire dragons my friend likes but doesnt use them much and banshees are cool if you can get into CC and they look cool

    My friend plays Eldar and the one thing I hate most about his army would Dark Reapers. St5 AP3 2 shots at 36&#39; each mows down infantry like they&#39;re going out of fashion. It&#39;s hard to assault them since they either shoot you down before you get there or their Exarch kills any transport/ tank you may throw at them as well.

    His Howling ladies never seem to be a big problem for me. I always shoot down their transport and he usually fails a heap of saves. If he sent them on foot then I would use anti-infanty fire to make them fail their saves. But, once in combat they are alright.

    Scorpions are not too bad. They can be annoying due to their infiltrating and disrupting your back lines. Their tank killing ability with grenades is also good. I&#39;m not too scared of them though, in combat with a power weapon and a squad of marines they don&#39;t survive too long.

    And don&#39;t bother with Swooping Hawkes. The only use they have is dropping their grenades at the start of their arrival. Other than that St3 Assault 2 guns are not that scary.

    Don&#39;t know about Warp Spiders I&#39;m affraid.

    PS I know that some of the mentioned are not Elites choices, but I&#39;m not an Eldar player so I don&#39;t know... I just know what I don&#39;t like
