u got no anti tank. take off the star cannons ont he wraithlords and add brightlances.

exarch have should have the bititng balde and crushing blow.

farseer, give me the pistol for +1 attack! if u need ot, take out some of the men from the guardian squads since i think a good number for them is 10. it shoudl work out to 1000 pts still.

2 wraithlords in a 1000pt army, u will have to get use to hearing cheesy. Even though there is only one farseer, u should beef him up, some more powers, mind war is a very good one in 1000pt and so is eldritch storm, turn those tanks around to lower their armour. Guide is always good as well.

dont use horde guardian squads, eldar make bad horde armies. I'm just going to make a few pointers.
-first, use the eldar's skill, not numbers
-wraithlords should have anti-tank (lances) and the infantry should have anti-inf
-use a bigger mob of scorps, in a wave serpent with lances.
ur troops (i thought of this possibility once) should be tactical squads, u could stick some ws 4 black assault squad guardians in a serpent, with a warlock with enhance. i dont care if theyre strength 3, theyd be ws 5.
-wave serpents and aspect warriors (or with ulthwe, warlock mobz) characterize eldar and make them good. beefed up wave serpents with scorps inside can be deadlier than a landraider.

Yes, GW has a Wave Serpeant model (or is it Forge World??? either way...). I got mobbed by like 4 of these on the field and they're sweet. Oh yea, think about war walkers, two multi-lasers can be nasty.... Esp with a Farseer and guide (1 multilaser x d6 shots x reroll on each one if you pass a morale test). Nice list, wish I could play you.

ok, i'll ditch the grenades and storm for some more Scorpions... i want to have a few points left over in case i need to switch to Howling Banshees (the exarch costs just a tad more) if i go up against say necrons or SM, of which i'm sure will happen eventually.

Oh, yeah and the wave serpents are made by forge world.

I like to convert... but i don't want to screw up a falcon. I'm much better at converting metal than plastic.

id say so. i did last game and i kicked the space puppies to the man. give it a holo field and spirit stones and it is almost invulnerbale. it can capture objectives and cornors, moving 12 and still fire. the wriathlord is a very big target. the fiore prism can take all the shots the wraithlord takes and shrug it off.

why dont u make this a 1500 point list and add the two wriathlords! lol u can solve both probs.

Well, i don't want to make it a 1500 list because i want a small army to start off with, and i think i'll ditch the wraithlord.

Warlock+ccw+shuriken pistol = 170 points
Avatar = 80

Black Guardian Defender Squad
6 Guardians + Starcannon + Crew = 98

Black Guardian Defender Squad
6 Guardians + Starcannon + Crew = 98

Black Guardian Defender Squad
6 Guardians + Bright Lance + Crew = 98

Dark Reapers x4 = 148

Wraithlord + Starcannon = 120

Falcon + Bright Lance + Holo-field + Spirit Stones = 190

You can base your army on this if you want.Ilike to hide the avatar behind the seer council who will cast fortune on themself(reroll any failed armour saves).So 4+ invulnerable rerollable save and a 5+ rerollable conceal save.The wraithlord hides behind the avatar rerolling missed hits (guide from the council).DO NOT TRY THIS AGIANST DAMON HUNTERS!!!!!!
