Welcome to Librarium Online!
So yeah, buddy and I are ordered the big box and splitting it. Time to join the cheese fest. I got the Falcon, Bike, Guardians, and Banshees. Most likely the codex too. I want to play a style of a hit quick and hard type of army, so most likely no Wraithlords or Seers (exception being Reapers and/or Dragons). Autarch mostly likely Swooping Hawk or Warp Spider with Striking Scorpian. I need your suggestions fellow Eldar players.
Everyone loves cheese. Marines have more than we do anyway (can you say land speeder tornado).
Ok you PMed me about a biel-tann army but very soon that isn't going to exist so you might want to adjust your idea slightly.
edit: sorry! getting you confused with E-Mance
You mentioned you wanted to mass warp spiders and since they are going to be fast attack you can have 30 of them max. 20 if you want a variety in your fast attack (bikes or hawks).
You don't need wraithlords anyway. You will probably need falcons instead though, they are incredible.
I'd recommend a squad of 10 fire dragons in a wave serpent, they work wonders. i used it for the 1st time the other day (without a serpent since i was vsing khorne) and they melted:
8 berserkers in one volley
a 205 pts daemon prince with a 4++ save and feel no pain in one volley.
A few other berserkers over the course of the game.
Were my last unit left alive before I got wiped out completely.
It would also give you all the anti tank you need (10 fire dragons and a serpent /w twin lances).
Good Luck with eldar, in a few months we will be the best army in the game up and above marines.

Check out my Codex: Farmyard Animals here!
If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
I would most definatley wait until people have their hands on the codex before going too far down this route.
Eldar are not simple to play well and many bits of contradictory advice exist and both have validity, take links poist above, he clearly gets good value from 10 fire dragons in a serpent, personnaly, I would not do it unless my opponent had an ultra large, very expensive killer squad. doesnt mean he is wrong. The best Eldar players use armies that are orchestrations, with the bits fo the army working together, just this bits work with the rest of his armies, but not with mine. Clearly all the guides that currently exist will be ebnt slightly with the new codex, and the contents are too prone to speculation, for example, noticed a post saying that dire avengers will be able to fire 3 shots in a turn if tyhey dont shoot in the next - this would be good for drive by squads, go out any buy 6 right? but other rumours say this is true but only if they are stationary - ie they cant dismount and do it!
Everything you have been told is a lie!
i would stronly suggest waiting for the new Dex before you do anything. a couple of weeks from now and all will change.
