Default Ultimate Eldar list

If money/models you have now/your opponents army weren't an issue - what would be the ultimate 2000 point Eldar army you'd like to field. It can be from any craftworld although mine is humble vanilla:

HQ
Farseer with fortune

Elites
10 wraithguard with warlock and conceal
10 fire dragons, one of them an exarch with firepike and tank hunter
Wave serpent (with fire dragons) with twinlinked Brightlances and spirit stone

Troops
16 guardian defenders with starcannon and warlock with conceal
16 guardian defenders with starcannon and warlock with conceal
10 rangers

Fast Attack
9 Guardian jetbikes and warlock with destructor

Heavy Support
5 Dark Reapers, one of them an exarch with EMS and fast shot.

My idea is that rangers and Dark Reapers provide long range firing support. The Farseer joins the wraithguard squad and forms a solid wedge of units with the two guardian squads who advance towards the enemy. The jetbikes outflank the enemy providing distractions and support when needed while the Wave serpent transports the fire dragons to where they are needed while the tank itself is a long range tank killer.
So what are your ultimate armies (and feel free to comment on mine as well!)

Someone has a starcannon fetish.

Mine is based a lot more around Ulthwe, but with a nice contingent of vypers thrown in. And maybe one or two starcannons.

Now you also have the option of hitting the land raider with your Farseer.

good point, so 3 ways, 2 on a 4+ and one on a 5+, good enough IMO, and when you consider no troop will survive ^-^
