my brother is starting an eldar army with some chapter that makes it so he take all those jetbikes.
now with what ive figured out is this is weak on his part when hes facing tau because the bikes fron armor is only 10-11. so my fire warriors could take them down. i need 5s to glance, 6s to pen, but onces hes moving its 5-6 to glance.
so im trying to figure out what i should do. should i just take lots of fire warriors (even vespid have str5 guns) and a team of crisis with what? whats the best gun for taking down jetbikes. i was thinking burst cannons, but if im gonna do that i might as well just take a bunch of stealth. i was thinking twinlinked missile pods.
but i dont have a lot of stealth models. i have 4 (just now realizing their potential) and 3 crisis with a shas'o (4). i was thinking to take burst cannons on them as well and just take them twinlinked. that way ill get 12 str5 shots that are re-rollable. and the hammerhead will just take an ion cannon maybe. well... if i take a railgun its an auto pen unless then move. so its pretty much a guarenteed detroyed one per turn. but with a bunch of bikes a railgun would be nigh worthless, wouldnt it?
i should probably just take one to get that guarenteed at least one bike obliterated, and have it there to freak him out.
if they're in squads then the ion cannon will work wonders.
you can also use lots of Deathrain crisis (TL Missile Pod & Targetting Array).
TAU PLAYER - GREY KNIGHTS PLAYER - WOOD ELVES PLAYER (kind of)

I'd take BC/MP Crisis Suits, as many as you can along with Ionheads and Firewarriors.
Oh, Gun Drones too. All the fast moving S5 shots will do you wonders along with the Fire Warriors and MP equipped Crisis Suits threatening the bikes wherever they go.
Sig by:Knape, The Celestial, and Marlinspike, thanks guys!
I'll say go with as many shots as possible so the BC/MP setup would work just fine.
I'll also suggest using stealthsuits, since they all have BCs and they can infiltrate so they starts inside shooting range of him.
I wouldn't use vespids since they are too expensive for what they do against Siam-Hann (the biker eldars) and if you uses hammerheads then Ioncannons is better than railguns against him
