im going up against dark angels for the first time tomarrow. its a friendly game but i wanna kick my friends but cause he's been going on about how awesome his stuff is. well probley be playing 1500 pts. i have 20 dire avengers, 1 farseer, 6banshees, 1falcon, 1fireprisim, 1wairthlord, 5hawks, and 5 warlocks, and buying a pack of scorpions that night, any tactics against the dark angels would be helpful. Thanks.
Skip on the Scorpions and get Dark Reapers. Any MEQ army hates them. They have awesome range and can put a dent in any squad they shoot at. The Exarch can have 2x EML shots at BS5 that will help against an errant Dreadnaght or take out a few bikes. Either way Dark Reapers will hurt a lot.
-The problem at hand is you have two good CC squads (Seer Council and Banshees) and only one semi-transport. I'd like to see the Banshees in the Falcon with the Farseer. Doom whatever unit they assault and they will have great success.
-Definately use both tanks all tooled up.
-The Swooping Hawks will be a bit out of place. Their grenade packs and lasblasters are weak against power armor. I'd give them Intercept and hope they can make it to a tank with their haywire grenades.
-Dark Angels, like any MEQ army hate AP3 weapons. I'd put a Star Cannon on the Falcon and a Star Cannon on the Wraithlord. Any losses to a Space Marine army will hurt him because the models cost so much pointwise.
-Keep your eye on the objectives. Eldar are naturally fast and have a natural speed advantage.
