Default 2000 point Alaitoc list

Please tell me what you think:

HQ
Avatar
Farseer with fortune

Elites
Pathfinders x 5
Wraithguard x 5 + warlock with conceal
Fire Dragons x 10 - one of them an exarch with firepike and tank hunter.
Wave serpent (with fire dragons) with Brightlances and spirit stone

Troops
Rangers x 3
Rangers x 5
Rangers x 5
Guardian Defenders x 16 + warlock with conceal and starcannon platform

Fast Attack
Jetbikes x 3 + warlock with destructor and also shuriken cannon upgrade
Vyper with starcannon

Heavy Support
Wraithlord x 2 both with starcannons
Dark Reapers x 5 one of them an exarch with EMS and Fast shot


The idea is that Rangers, pathfinders and Reapers stay as far back as possible killing from long distance. Hopefully the four Ranger Disruption rolls I'll get will disrupt the enemy army nicely.
The Avatar and Farseer will join the wraithguard squad - making one squad which will attract an awful lot of firepower but which can also soak up a lot of firepower and will be deadly once it reaches the front lines.
Fire Dragons shall of course be transported by the wave serpent to whereever they are needed while the twinlinked bright lance shall go tank hunting.
The guardian squad will join the wraithguard squad right in the centre of my lines and with it try to calve a way through the middle. The two wraithlords will also join them on either side.
The jetbike squad and the vyper squad will be on the outside of my army and will try to outflank and harass the enemy, hopefully panicking them into wasting shots.
So, what do you think?

Pretty good, although it could very easily out-manouvered. The Wraithguard should absorb a lot of fire though, so that central core force should be pretty nasty.
Could be very nasty if used well, but you're loosing out on of the Eldar's greatest advantages with this set-up, speed.
Still, nice list.

Yeah, my ideal list would have more fast attack and I have plans to buy more fast attack pretty soon but I decided to make a list based solely on the models which I have, - which excludes models I plan to buy. I|'m hoping to get more rangers as well, and then when they come through I'll probably ditch a wraithlord (or I might ditch both wraithlords ;D) and fill up the space with more rangers and fast attack.

Fair enough.
For some reason I think a Night-Spinner would be cool for that army, which goes totally against the suggetion I made about fast attack. ;D

would you get 4 distruption roles? I thought it was one per path-finder unit, I'm probaly wrong, I don't read the craftworld codex very often.

It's one per pathfinder and ranger unit. I have one squad of pathfinders and three squads of rangers.

4 Disruption rolls is pretty good!

hrumpf,

Well seriously its a nice list, if not a typical eldar one. You have enough rangers in each squad for the army not to stink of cheese , well not too much (j/k!) but still get those all important ranger disruption rolls.

Maybe a few too many starcannons, exchange one on a wraithlord for a bright lance methinks, at the moment if the wave serpent goes down you lose you best 2 anti-tank units...

lol. Be glad it isn't six rolls! Anyway who said anything about broadsides. If I were you your fire warriors should be looking worried,

Interesting idea about the bright lance...
