Default Vehicles

Alright. I was thinking and wondered just how many vehicles most Eldar players run in their armys. Just give your answer and explain a bit about why you run that many.

In my current list, I run only three vehicles; a Fire Prism, a Falcon, and a Wave Serpent. Switching from Biel-Tan to Vanilla Eldar kinda let me realize that I didn't need as many vehicles to get the job done. I've delegated my skimmers to the roles I found them best suited for (for me); support of my troops. What about you guys?
All suspects are guilty. Period. Otherwise they wouldn't be suspect, would they?

I run two or three... a Falcon or Wave Serpent and a couple Vypers. Come the new Codex, and me actually resolving to get down to painting and playing, I'll probably be using more like six... I see myself using a Falcon, Wave Serpent, trio of Vypers, and War Walker.

One Wave Serpent for transporting Banshees. Two Falcons, for Dragons and whatever else. A Vyper or two. I love the mobility of the vehicles, plus the firepower they can provide. Besides, I'm Biel Tan.

I try to take 2-3 in my standard army (Iyanden). Normally a Wave Serpent and a Vyper (1k lists) or sometimes a Wave Serpent, Vyper, and Falcon if we're over 1,000pts.

My Saim Hann host obviously has lots of vehicles in it- so I'm normally in the 4-8 range at 1k, even 8+ at larger points.

Most of the time i fight against necrons, and the only thing tuff enough to take more than one hit would be a fast skimmer that moved more than 6", plus Vypers can have weapons that do more damage than any other fast that i have gotten use out of against them.

I take:
2 vypers and use their mobility and upgrades to safely Harass enemy squads.
1 Falcon which I use as a strong Firebase
1 Wave serpant which I use as a transport.... duh! (It also uses TL-BL to shoot down tanks!)

If I were to play Eldar, I imagine running a nice 5 vehicles...one tank class, one pure transport, 3 light harassment/snipers.

For me it totally depends on how many points i'm playing. In 1000pts i try not to include any vehicles, but once we get to 1500+pts (the good stuff) then i will begin to include vehicles.
