    The only mistake was giving your warlock Runes.. your paying 10 pts for Augment there, and it&#39;s not worth it. skip them, and rather add some more warlocks (Enhance is mean together with Witchblade-toting seers) and make sure that you seer council has Witchblades.

    You don&#39;t need wraithguard to take a wraithlord so ignore that, your list is legal.
    It looks good, a classic variation on the Ulthwe "Shooty Army From Hell"
    I do feel there are a few problems though. It would help to know your expected opponents.
    Firstly there is a serious lack of anti armour, or high strength weapons, a single bright lance isn&#39;t going to help you against a pair of Leamun Russ. Yes the starcannons could glance most armour but do you really wanna waste all that marine killing fun on a Rhino? I&#39;d switch one of the black guardian starcannons for a bright lance straight away. I&#39;d also consider changing the weapon options on the warwalkers. Perhaps go the whole hog and use pairs of star cannons, with 3 bright lances in the guardian squads. Be warned though, 6 guided star cannons a turn will make you unpopular with some opponents. You could also consider investing in a D-Cannon.
    Seer Councils have different uses, yours seems to be designed for a support role rather than a combat role. For that I feel it is far to expensive. Spirit stones are very expensive and do you really need all those mind wars? Spirit stones are designed for Vanila Eldar lists who usualy only field a single Farseer. I&#39;d switch to 3 Farseers with Guide, Mind War and Fortune Respectivly. With the 120 odd points you&#39;d save, be sure to buy runes of witnessing for your Fortune farseer. Its not worth the risk not to.
    You won&#39;t need 3 auguments as Fortune doesn&#39;t need the range, so give the 3rd warlock enhance. Then use the spare points to loads the whole squad with witchblades (or perhaps some singing spears for that anti armour boost). This way you&#39;ll have a second fearsom close combat squad as well as the support you need.
    The tactical reason for this is that no matter how many guns you field, some will reach your lines. The Seer Council can then mop up.
    Right now the list is powerful but weak against a Rhino rush.
    Oh, and give the Scorp Exarch Crushing blow, NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT.

    Hope some of that helps.

    Yeh that looks great. As you are now well stocked for bright lances, my final suggestion would be to take the heavy weapon off the wraithlord. The logic for this is that it is a very expensive way to carry a heavy weapon. The wraithlord will either draw alot of fire power and die, or get into hand to hand where it won&#39;t be able to fire. For 75 points with no weapon a wraithlord is the best bargin unit you&#39;ll ever find. The extra bright lance isn&#39;t worth 45 points, espesh when you have others crewed by BS4 guardians.
    If you can nudge that 45 up to 50 spare (poss lose the biting blade) then a D-Cannon is potentialy game winning investment.

    you have to give the wraithlord a heavy weapon. it is mandatory

    but if i get ride of 2 war walkers that frees up 100 points, enuf for two d annons. should i do this or use the 3 war walkers?

    No, stick with the 3 warwalkers, they are a very powerful unit. You&#39;re list is very strong as you have it.

    A heavy weapon on a wraithlord is not mandatory according to the codex; it is listed under "Options: The Wraithlord MAY be armed with one of the following heavy weapons..."
    As I said before, I find it a very expensive way to deploy a heavy weapon; support weapons or Vypers give you more bang for your points, but are more vulnerable.
