Default Dawn of War: Soulstorm - Eldar help

I'm playing DoW: Soulstorm. The game is great. But I'm having a hard time with Eldar. Right now, I'm running the campaign on "Standard" level of play. I'm still very much a n00b, so bear with me. My current strategy is to build a hard base with D-cannons and some initial Guardian squads to hold my base. I build up a force of a Seer Council & Farseer, 6 units of 10 Banshees, several Falcons (which I only just recently realized could transport stuff : , and an Avatar. Then I go swarm the enemy's base.

Right now I'm fighting the Necrons and they have two bases. My problem is that they've just got too much in the way of material for me to counter them and destroy their buildings. I'm probably going to get stomped (again) and I'm thinking of possibly building a core base to form a counter attack force then send several Falcons with Fire Dragons and some Fire Prisms around to take out a enemy base.

Thoughts?

not sure how I would beat em with eldar, but my strategy against them is to get some squads together for a rush as soon as possible.(a few raptor squads and a chaos lord for example).

in dark crusade some races had to build up a retinues, and just storm the bases blitzkrieg fashion.

Two bases means you need to do it quick while they are still only mildly strong. If you can, concentrate on the main buildings.

I don't have the last expansion, but the Eldar are the only race I never beat the game with in Dark Crusade. I found them too difficult to win with or something lol.

I'm thinking of grabbing the bonesinger ability early on then sending several to neuter the enemy base while I attack with Fire Dragons and Falcons. Thoughts?
