Default 400pts, please let me know what you think.

This list is based around one thing - jetbikes. I love 'em. They're sleek, fast, tough (compared to most units), can turbo boost, jump shoot jump and chuck out plenty of shuriken weaponry. Hence I want to include as many of them as I can in my army.

3 Jetbikes - shuriken cannon

3 Jetbikes - shuriken cannon

4 Shining spears
1 Exarch w/ star lance, skilled rider and withdraw

I've not tried an army of this size of just jetbikes yet, but I think it could work quite nicely. I have enough S6 weapons to take out any transports fielded at this level, mobility and 8 S6 power weapon attacks on the charge with 3 S8 power weapon attacks on the charge from the shining spears. I've considered swapping one jetbike unit for a vyper with scatter laser and shuriken cannon, and then upgrading the exarch to carry a shuriken cannon aswell to take advantage of his BS5.

What do you think?

he doesn't need an HQ if he's doing a combat patrol list.

The one thing you'll probably hear, is that the list lacks numbers (typical eldar! ), but if I can play 6 wraithguard in a 400 pt combat patrol list... then I think you should try it
