Default Eldar Expansion. Opinions needed.

ok, so heres the army i currently run:

1 farseer with singing spear
20 dire avengers(2 squads of 10)
6 banshess
6 fire dragons
6 hawks
5 dark reapers
1 wave serpent

my idea is to get another wave serpent and an autarch. i plan on giving my autarch wings, mandiblasters, fusion gun and a power sword and putting him with my hawks for more survivability, a little ranged anti-tank punch and increased close combat ability(cause the autarch just shreds 8)). i would love to hear your opinions and any changes i should make. if you need an exact army list with all the wargear i usually put in, just ask. [note: i put my fire dragons in my wave serpent]

For the price and model awesomeness, I don't think you can ever go wrong with War Walkers.

I laud your use of hawks. I own a box, but they're still unpainted and so I haven't had a chance to test them in the crucible of battle. Adding an Autarch would surely improve their survivability, but overall I simply don't see the Autarch as a very useful HQ choice.

i wish to get some walkers at some point, but currently my main focus is on getting my current army to the other side of the table, mainly my banshees. plus, i got the hawks not only to use against my tyranid friend, but also to hunt tanks against marines. but, considering they are pretty much paper(just like the rest of the eldar), the autarch will allow them to make multiple skyleap strikes successfuly without the unit being dead or down to its last man by the end of the game. it seems like a bad investment of 130 points and a kill point, but he alone can make the hawks a marine killer.
