being a former eldar player, and hence i cant log back my old alias of Xaero for some odd reason, I figured I'd give my input under this alias.
Ok, in my old force, which was a little shootier than the average eldar, Definately need aspect warriors, personally I loved Howling banshees, Which needed a transport. I had a squad of ten w/ a wave serpent, if I were facing marines, chaos, any heavily armored army. If not Id take a 10 man squad of scorpions in a wave serpent, good for taking out swathes of under-average troops, IG, Tau, etc. Depending which squad I took in the wave serpent depended on which squad was 6 man in a falcon. ie 10 man banshees, 6 man scorpions, but I also played ulthwe. so that was abandoned sometimes for the seer council. Black guardians, which had +1 bs or ws, were in more than 10 man squads w/ a warlock, which i could have sworn dont have guide (it might just be the fact that i havent played them in over a year but I thought farseers had guide), but have cover, which gave them a 5+ invulnerable cover save. The black guardians were the most devastating part of my army, 40 s4 ap5 shots at 3+ was damaging, *reminisces how he took down 2 10 man terminator squads in one turn w/ 2 black guardian squads.*
Wraithlords are pretty much a no brainer, the only thing is they are lascannon magnets, so usually they are a distraction for my dark reapers or banshees/scorpions. err, cant think of much right now, if i remember, ill write more.
