Default Sample army list

HQ:

Farseer : 140 points
Eldar Jetbike
Witch Blade
Fortune
Guide

Elites:

10x Howling Banshees with Exarch: 209 points
War Shout
Acrobatic
Power Blades

10x Fire Dragons: 170 points

Troops:

5x Wraithguard: 175 points
With Warlock: 41 points
Enhance
Witch Blade

5x Wraithguard: 175 points
With Warlock: 41 points
Enhance
Witch Blade

Wraithlord: 120 points
Bright Lance


Wraithlord: 120 points
Star Cannon

Fast Attack:

10x Jetbike Guardian Squadron: 350 points
With Warlock: 71 points
Witch Blade
Jetbike

Heavy Support:

20x Guardian Defender Squad: 210 points
Anti-Grav Platform Bright Lance
With Warlock: 46 points
Witch Blade
Conceal

Transport:

Wave Serpent: 135 Points
Twin-Linked Bright Lance
Spirit Stone

Total Points: 1993 Points


The Guardian Defender Squad give heavy support Fire Power to the Wraithguards/Lords and the Banshees and Fire Dragons. The Wave Serpent is able to transport the Banshees so I can take out the heavyer Units, or Fire Dragons to take out the big guns/Tanks :P The Jetbikes hit where the he/she is weak and hit it hard. And to give fire support. The Farseer just flys around and to put his powers to use. And to give him a nice 3+ Save Wraithguard units run around geting into Close combat OR Shot the stongest units. And Wraithlords.. Well you know what they do

So hows this list?

First off, no Banshees. As myself and Icarus both attest to, Scorpions do everything they do, only better.

Secondly, you could put that it's Iyanden, rather than letting everyone guess. It's only polite man...

Thirdly, take Spirit Seers, not Warlocks. Ditch Guide if you need to. Failing that, replace the Witchblades with Singing Spears; Wraithguard are Shooty.

The Guardians seem a bit of a waste... either lessen the squad and spend the surplus elsewhere, or switch it for something packing more firepower (War Walkers or Fireprism being favourite). At the moment, they aren't really threatening... and when those Wraithlords and Wave Serpent go down (and they will...), you'll want a gun-magnet unit to cover your footslogging Wraithguard.

10 man Jetbikes? Expensive, and near useless. Ditch them and buy something more useful (like another Wave Serpent, or Dark Reapers...). This army really wants more guns to whittle down the enemy prior to the charge (Wraithlords hurt, but only if they get there...), and Jetbikes don't do that.

Sorry I forrgot to put in that they are Iyanden Sorry guys.Why Spirit Seers? I did not see much use in them. Maybe make it only 10 Guardians? Ok I will look into Scorpions.

There's no point in the Spiritseers. IMO they're a simple waste of 8 points

I disagree, it can be mighty useful if you have them. And mighty annoying if you don't.
