Default The tacticas I've done

Do you guys want me to keep on doing my Tacticas? I havent done one for a while, because I thought I was putting them out too fast. Is there a need for them? Is there anything in particular you'd like covered?

Well, IIRC you've done Dire Avengers, Dark Reapers, Warp Spiders, SC's, and I think... Howling Banshees? Yeah, and Wave Serpents. Maybe Harlequins too, or no? Anyway...

I think maybe... hmm... I dunno. Maybe Fire Prisms (like how to use them in conjunction with other units maybe more than how to use it theoretically)?

Did you do Rangers/Pathfinders? I'd like some more tips with them, as I only used them once or twice but was pleased with the results and would like to get more...

I've done characters, serpents, avengers, banshees, spiders and reapers.

I can do Prisms and Rangers easy enough.... Anything else? Make this like an eldar tactica wishlist...

I would very much enjoy a Prism Tactica. Perhaps Scorpions?

Wraithguard tactica is an awesome idea, I think there's some good drop 'n' pop potential if they're backed up by a Guideseer and too few armies other than Iyanden really ever use them. Seconded ;D

I would really like a wraithlord guide. I have never understood really how to use them, and I don't find them in lists that often.

Also, would you ever consider doing more general tacticas? Say, one that covers how to counter MEQs, one that covers how to counter Hordes, etc.
Or perhaps a short run down of what the various units are good at countering. I know there is something like that already stickied, but the stickied stuff all seems very outdated.

maybe a support weapon team tactica can be done.

The support weapon idea would be a good one, since they are not nearly as common as other units. I've never actually used them, or seen someone else play them against me. Even veteran Eldar players may not have much experience with using those things. I kind of want to use them for aesthetic reasons, but I for one wouldn't have the first clue as far as good tricks to pull with them.

Regarding the tacticas in general, I like the bits where you focus on the ideal usage and crafty tricks you can pull. Everybody knows what a reaper launcher can do, but advice on 'how can you best use that' I find much more interesting.

Especially important to my play style is the concept of using units in tandem. Like one-two punch, what combo goes well with what sort of thoughts. So if you are running out of individual unit types to detail and like to ramble away when you are bored, you could always start in with devious combo ideas - theres many many possibilities to ponder over there.

Anyways, I think they are all nice to have posted. Some of the stuff is pretty obvious but thats because I've played Eldar for ages, but its good to have them around for the new guys. Props.
