Linkdead Eldar advice!

Linkdead said...
I've been following the thread over on Heresy and I saw this one here and it's inspired me to build an Eldar army. I can't say I've ever been a fan of Eldar either.

What do you think of this list built using the same template but with Eldrad?

Eldrad
210

5 Fire Dragons
Wave Serpent
-Bright Lance
-Spirit Stones
225

10 Dire Avengers
-Exarch
-Dual Catapults
-Bladestorm
Wave Serpent
-Spirit Stones
-Bright Lance
297

10 Dire Avengers
-Exarch
-Dual Catapults
-Bladestorm
Wave Serpent
-Spirit Stones

5 Pathfinders
120

Fire Prism
115

Fire Prism

Fire Prism

total: 1494

Replace the Stones with Chin Cannon, you have little mid-range anti-Infantry. To be honest, what's Eldrad going to do in this list? He has virtually nothing to Guide - wouldn't a regular DoomSeer make more sense? In fact, this could be a way to showcase the SuiSeer Build.

Farseer:
Doom, Mind War, Spirit Stones, RoWit, Singing Spear, RoWard (because you have no other access). - 148

Stick him in a Serpent with Fire Dragons and use him to bolster the unitb if attacking Infantry. The Spear adds a bit of anti-tank, although it probably isn't at all necessary.

Dropping the DA Exarchs takes your total saving to 126. Replace the Pathfinders, then, with 8 more Avengers in a BL/SCan Serp. Same number of Troops, more mobility, gives the Dragons a better chance to last...Altogether though, I think that Eldar still don't work well at 1500. If IG don't take the Throne Of Skulls this year it's because the IG Players there aren't competitive enough...or Space Wolves are just that much better.

Sorry it took so long to get this one out, it's been waiting to be published for over a week, I just forgot about it... :(

Also, I haven't forgotten your revised list Mathew Wong, it's en route. My promised post on LOS is also coming in a week or so.
