umm, I'm not up with my biel tan but Spiders sound good in groups of 5 to make them easier to maneuver and scorps or banshees bepending on what the opponent is.

but as an aside can we limit it to one flash image? sig Or avatar? it slows the forum speed for non DSL users.

looks good to me. Consider what army you're playing though before you decide. If you're playing Tau Howling Banshees for example will be of better use than striking scorpions. Definitely have fire dragons whatever you do - their fire power is invaluable and can kill anything.

Hmm. Potentially good. Aren't you giving your Farseer and Warlocks any psychic powers? I'd also recommend having more Warp Spiders and Fire Dragons. These are your troops now, don't have the least possible in the squad, if anything get the most - have ten of each. Dark Reapers look good though!

The farseer MUST be given between 1 and 4 powers. The warlocks should be given a power, say two with Enhance, one with Embolden, and two with Destructor. They should also get some wargear.

First dump the Psykers (IMO) I hate em. But if your gonna use them you better hook them up with some gear. Dark reaper Exarch- get him a missile launcher. Warp Spider Exarch get Withdrawl. Fire Dragons- get 1 more dragon and put them in a Falcon, or get 5 more and put them in a Wave Serpent. Dragons are great but they have to close the range with the enemy to be effective. Beyond that get these things- 1 Wraithlord, at least 1 Vyper to start, 8 Howling banshees and exarch, the Avatar, 1-2 Falcons, 1-2 Wave serpents when they come out, a Squad of Scorpions, a Squad of Swooping Hawks. Also Phoenix lords are nice models, and can serve as alternate HQ's.

Thinking about Upgraded the Falcon Tank even more and Maybe subbing out the Farseer and council for an Avatar and a Court of the Young King

And Maybe one or two Shadow Weaver Support Batteries or a Suped up Wraithlord

I thought that Dark Reapers are troops in a Beil-Tan army...all aspects are troops are they not? any way, definately beef up your squad size. Add a transport to your Fire Dragons. I would also recommend either some War Walkers for their massive Fire Power (imagine 6 starcannons shooting at one enemy unit!) or even a Wraithlord. One thing I'm particular about are the Wraithguard. Very resiliant although they are fairly slow. Other then that, it looks nice, just needs some tweaking here and there.

Reapers are troops in a Biel-Tann army, though not all aspects are. Swooping Hawks and Shining Spears are still Fast Attack choices. I know a guy who fields a BT army with 6 units of Reapers. It's cheesy and he knows it but god it's nasty.
