Default I need help defeating my friend's Eldar

I need help beating Eldar. HQ: I will use a command squad in a chimera. Elites: 2 veteran squads one 10(PG and ML) one 5(HB and Melta). Troops: 2 storm trooper squads both with a GL and a Lighter(flamer). Heavy Support: 2 LRs and 1 LRE.



My friend is likely to take a falcon, waithlord, a squad of rangers,10 man Guardian Squad, and the ever anoying swooping halks. And mabey fire dragons and a D-Cannon platform.

My army is 1174 points the game is 1250pts I would like tactics and suggestions. The table is a 4x4.This is not an actual list so its not set out like one(mainly for Wargamer).

I would suggest getting some tough and resilient units, like orgryns. I hate the models and the unit, but when Eladar attcks really quick and expects a slaughter, and there's 4 orgryns still standing, there's hell to pay. Eldars weakness is to assault a tough unit and not kill with thier weak weapons. They don't have good weaponry. They mostly rely on speed to avoid fire and to advance.
Seeing as eldar armour is weak, get some autocannons, to hit the fast moving falcon from afar, with two shots, and a 50% chance of hitting. The meltas are a good choice, as they can fry any units that get up close.
I would play a refused flank. Observe:


This tactic disenables him from surrounding your force with his fast units, and using hills, you can fire every gun at him as he advances. Also, his units on the other table edge can't get range to you. (usaully)

Would a sentinel be better than a psyker?
