make sure they fit into yuor style of play. mine is more defensive, sit back and shoot until the assult comes to me and i ahve all my hth units in front(wriathlord, banshees in wave serpent, seer coucil)

they wouldnt fit in my army. dont just get them to get them, if yu ahve a strat in mind then thats good but they are real specific, close range power, not so good in a shooty eldar army.

they are good in hth with str 5 and thoughness 5 and 3+ and the wraithcannon are nasty, but they need somehting to support them, like banshees.

Ya if you going to play with them, i would really suggest playing an iyanden army. Otherwise i would find it hard to get their points back in most games. If you pop a spirit seer in their squad then you should be great.

Hmm - I would agree most of the time that Banshees would work better - since the Wraithguard have strength and toughness while the Banshees have sheer speed and hitting power.

However, myself personally would take Scorpions. What reasons you ask? Well - they would keep pace with the slower Wraithguard being unable to FoF. THis would keep my fighting force togeather. It would also allow me to specialize in destroying certain enemys as both units are relatively strong and tough for the Eldar. Reason three - the sheer number of attacks a scorpion squad can pull off - nothing to joke at.

this is the same exact problem i had. u gotta think...am i playing roks..then why do i need power weaopns? same for like nids. if yur facing marines, or tau or de(pesky lil HQ) then bvanshees are the way to go.

persoanlly i like scorps caus if u throw enuf wounds at marines...eventually they will go down.

I think it solely depends on what your opponent is playing as.

are u thinking about for assisting wraithlords or just for normal use. banshees are better for normal use becaues of there speed but would not be useable with the wraithguards becaues they are real slow. but Scorpians can take a little more blow and go than banshees and have the extra attacks with the same speed as wraithguard.
