Elites:.....................75p.............~4%
Fast Attack:...........266p...........~14%
Heavy Support:.....522p............~28%


Tactics:
As for tactics, hard to say without knowing the terrain. Grenadiers will go for objectives supported by the tanks. Remaining infantry will deploy in cover, with the two command squads with the mortars for leadership deployed within 12" of those squads but out of LOS from the enemy. Hide, fire mortars and provide leadership for the lascannon squads.
Veterans will deepstrike and try and take out something expensive or annoying like a land raider or a basilisk, with 3 meltaguns they should put some serious hurt to whatever they're shooting at.
Depending on the enemy the Rough Riders will either stay behind LOS for most of the game and then act as a countercharge unit once the enemy charges the fireline, else they'll advance behind the tanks to deal some damage that way. They've also been given 4+ armour for increased survivability.

For this battle, if the DE player plays correctly, those lemans will be destroyed easily. 15 dark lances or equivelent in this list will eat the armour.
Once the fast troops hit cc its all over for the guard.

My vote goes to the Dark Eldar

I vote for Dark Eldar.

1. Dark Lances = wrecked vehicles.

2. Jetbikes + Wyches + Warp Beasts + Mandarks + Archon = Guardsmen corpses everywhere.

3. Superior speed/mobility = more loot counters (mission).

4. Reasons 1-3 = Victory for the eldar.

Dark Eldar
For reasons already explained.
EDIT: sorry. The DE are going to run circles around the IG and blow up their tanks with dark lances. Once the IG's tanks are destroyed, there's no hope for them.

Lord Mortis, you can't actually say "what he said" and have your vote counted to my knowledge.

Overwhelming firepower and superior mobility will win the day for the DE, especially with those dark lances and disintigrators and blasters

I vote Dark Eldar

As guard armies go this one is better suited to objective claiming than most. Nice mobility with the Chimeras, Roughriders and Deep Striking Vets. Also the mortars will be effective against the raiders (open topped). But ultimately I think the DE will win.
There are enough Dark Lances (11) to disable two tanks each turn (either destroyed or shaken) and enough Dissintegrators (6) to maul a squad each turn. I think the Jetbikes should be able to kill the Chimeras by turn 2 and then there goes most of the Guard's claiming ability. This DE list is pretty well balanced, enough Splinter Cannons and template Dissies vs troops plus lots of mobility to get into CC early and claim far objectives in turn 6.

As it stands, that DE is probably the perfect IG destroying list. Zoom up the table, leap out and guard army goes splat. If the DE had less Dark Lances I could see the IG making a stand round it's Chimeras, but as it stands the vote can't go any other way.

Too many Dark Lances and too many things that will kick in Guard in combat. not really much chance of survival...
