Default Which Phoenix Lord is the best?

I am having problems finding out which Phoenix Lord is the best. I also can't figure out which squad is better: Fire Dragons, Swooping Hawks, Dark Reapers,Dire Avengers, Howling Banshees or Striking Scorpions.

Eldar are generally a very specalised army, aspect warriors doubly so. Aspect warriors are not really versatile fighters like Space Marines, they excell at noe particular thing and are pretty mediocare at the rest. A good mix of a few aspects therefore is often a good way to go to cover all the bases - if you particularly like aspect warrirors then maybe a biel-tan army is for you!

http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=5283.0 here is a little guide I have written for aspect warrior tactica you may find useful too.

I like asurem the best because the fluff behind and he is very good

I also like striking scorpians in my army because of their army and good cc abilities

but these are just my thoughts

The one that makes its points back and lives through the game. That usually rules them all out though.

My choice would be Baharroth because of Sustained Assualt.

The simple answer is - none of them. No Phoenix Lord is particularly better than the others and no aspect is particularly better than the others. They all excell at different things and jobs - as 42 said, they're not versatile. If you want to blow up that nasty tank or deal with that squad of terminators - get fire dragons. If you want to hold the objective at any cost which means fighting up close in combat then get striking scorpions. If you want good fire support from behind then get Dark Reapers.

Each aspect is great when used correctly and each one falls apart when not used correctly.

I like all of them. They are all equal, but it always seems like I need Fire Dragons the most (I always play my cousin and he likes lots of lascannons in his Chaos Space Marines Army.)
