So I made a mechanized 1000 list, but I've taken a slight interest in Alaitoc and wanted to build a list from it's ranger theme in case I decided to paint up my Eldar as Alaitocs. The list is supposed to concentrate not on smashing the opponent, nor agressiveness, but picking them off and using factors like pinning, doom, ect. as a "thorn in the side."

HQ:
Farseer - 80
Doom

Elites:
6 Fire Dragons - 96
Wave Serpent - 110
TL Shuriken Cannon, Spirit Stones

Troops:
5 Pathfinders - 120

5 Pathfinders - 120

5 Pathfinders - 120

Fast Attack:
6 Warp Spiders - 164
Exarch, Death Spinner, Withdraw

Heavy Support:
3 War Walkers - 180
6x Scatter Lasers

Total: 990

It doesn't look bad if you're far away from the opponent but its way too specialist for a 1000 point army. I would say one squad of rangers at most. Warp spiders are too expensive for 1000 point. keep your fire dragons and put in at least two dire aveger squads with transports. hope this helps.

Well the theme is rangers/pathfinders. I could take out one pathfinder squad, but removing any more wouldn't make it seem very Alaitoc, would it? I was thinking of dropping the Spiders and adding a Scorpion squad to protect the Pathfinders from CC units.
Here's a variant of the first list:

HQ:
Farseer - 80
Doom

Elites:
8 Striking Scorpions - 175
Exarch, Scorpion's Claw, Shadowstrike

6 Fire Dragons - 96
Wave Serpent - 145
TL Brightlances, Spirit Stones

Troops:
10 Dire Avengers - 152
Exarch, 2x Shuriken Catapults, Bladestorm
Wave Serpent - 110
TL Shuriken Cannons, Spirit Stones

5 Pathfinders - 120

5 Pathfinders - 120

Total: 998

-Farseer goes with DA and Dooms units
-Scorps protect Pathfinders as a counter-charge unit or infiltrate and lock units in CC, ensuring the Dragons don't get shot at much when they disembark
-Dragons zoom forward and pop tanks under the cover of DAs and/or Scorps
-Pathfinders sit on objectives and annoy the opponent with pinning tests

How's it look now?

Hmm, I suppose. What if I wanted to fit this into a 1500 point list? I think it'd be easier with more points to work with. I could drop a squad of pathfinders and downgrade the other to rangers, then combining them into an 8-10 man unit. (Which was suggested on Warseer)

if possible it would be good to stick fortune on the farseer too (with spirit stones) so one of your units is defended against shooting/melee attacks, for rangers that could mean rerollable 2+ cover saves.
