Default Eldar and Dark Eldar 1500pt each vs New Nids 3000pt

Ok my friend Jeff and I got challenged to a 2v1 3000 point match. He plays DE, I play Eldar. I play Altaioc while he plays a Webway army of some sort. Were playing next Wednesday, I forgot my army at home and I just received the challenge today. We don't know the nid player's list but we know he likes ripper swarms and stealers. We know he also has a couple Regen Fexes as well as 3 lictors. I'm a little scared, this could be my first defeat. I'll post both lists tomorrow, July 5th.

replace the scatter lasers w/ starcannons at the cost of a few guardians. the new nid codex makes it possible to field 7 monstrous creatures (6 fexes and 1 tyrant...o wait maybe it's 8 monstrous creatures). w/ that possibility i'd use starcannons to take down those 2+ saves, plus u wont have to worry about rolling a 1 for that scat. laser

here's some help!
1.) ripper swarms usaully are used to tie people up in close combat for me it was a venerable dreadnought, for you probobly a wraith lord

2.)genies don't have leaping assault! don't make the mistake i did and get owned because i didn't ask how

3.)don't worry to much about lictors space wolf termies took two of em out with no casualties(had power weapons though
they also are only toughness 4

4.)a carnifexe's regeneration only works on a 6. it is also expensive (30 points i beleive and that realy saps points)

5.)my friend plays nids and out of five battles his carni has never gotten into close combat

6.)carnifexes tend to attract fire so try not to concentate on them to much even out your shots

7.)dont be affraid to use troops weapons to kill a carni. i killed one with 2 storm bolters. 20 shruiken catapults could easily kill one even with a 2+ armor(extended carapace) with all those saves he is going to fail a few

8.)don't shoot stuff that has come back with endless numbers concentrate on the other stuff

9.)people that return using endless numbers do not count for more victory points

10.)genies dont have endless numbers

11.)take one point off somehwere and give your farseer eldritch storm instead of guide. nids don't taking armor saves because the have poor armor saves

12.)leaping assault does not allow you to assalt around to get behind combat they have to assault straight in

personally i think rain should keep guide. war walkers miss a TON for the amount of firepower that they carry, and it's nice to not have to spend 2 turns shooting the same thing just because you missed a few shots.

My friend has a Couple of raiders, so if the Gaunts get to close to me, he'll throw a raider in for a block and shoot from underneath with the Warriors. His WWP will work nicely too, if I can make most of the nids draw towards our vehicles, he can slip his lord past everything and open up a portal from behind, letting loose 2 full squads of warriors.

"His WWP will work nicely too, if I can make most of the nids draw towards our vehicles, he can slip his lord past everything and open up a portal from behind, letting loose 2 full squads of warriors."

Probably not a great idea because:

1. If he's foot-slogging, he's not fighting. As a combat monster, you'll probably want him in the thick of it.
2. He can't "sneak", and still be safe, unless he's protected by independant character status. And a squad of troops+ a lord will make a bit of noise.
3. If he's not protected, a Zoanthrope will might make short work of him.
4. 2 squads of warriors isn't a huge deal. Some wytches and a raider or two, might be.

Not to rail on it or anything, I just don't think it's a good idea to expect to sneak something like an HQ unit behind their lines. Expect a decent flanking position at best.

Another suggestion is get some banshees in there they own in combat and they are relatively cheap for what they do.
i would still suggest the storm though, trust me ord really helps.
another bit of advice is keep your wraith lord away frop the genestealers. no mater how good he is in combat all those rending attacks will hurt.

also make sure you post what happens at the end of your battle. i am quite interested.
