Default Bright Lances.

I just got a land raider a couple days ago. I played my friend w/ Eldar. He always aims his 3 bright lance at my Land Raider. A bright lance brings armour above 12, down to 12. So that sucks for my 14 armour on all sides land raider.The Eldar player has 2 bright lances on his wave serpant and one on his shining spear exark. How can I prevent the bright lances from shotting at my Land Raider.

Don't bother. The Land Raider is only usefull at buying back it's points if it can get all it's weapons to bear, meaning no Hull Down - and it's too big most of the time, anyway.
Besides... Eldar are insanely maneuverable, and will have little to no difficulty getting shots at you.

One thing - either your opponent has 2 Wave Serpents, or he's cheating - a Twin-Linked weapon only allows you to reroll to hit, not to fire two shots.

kill or stun the things with the bright lances, or hide the land raider.

Behind two rhinos? Wouldnīt that work with sizes and all?

You could try using the landraider as bait. You know he will move his lances to get to the landraider, and might concentrate his forces against it. Try using that to your advantage. Set a trap for his vehicles, and take full benefit of Eldar weaker armor by stocking up assaultcannons(maybe), autocannons yms. S6-7 multiple shot weapons. If you get the wave serpent down, itīs worth it I think.

Stop playing a land raider? I have never once seen them get their points back.

But if you insist, I would say make sure it's smoked or inside of cover at all times. Obscured 14 armor is no joke, even to bright lances. Remember, each brightlance needs a 4 to glance, 5 or 6 to penetrate you. Pretty good odds, but not guarantees coming from 3 ballistic skill weapons.

I play against an Ulthwe player, and i usually play a Preadator or 2, and his Brightlances usually Miss me (Unlucky rolling I guess) He usually takes my tanks down with starcannons, if at all. Last game i played with him he blew up an Armament and Imobilised my Predator with 3 dark reapers....

Don't hide your tank drive it strait at him and use it as a very Expensive Distraction and if you think your lucky enough to get close enough load it with Assault terminators while your at it. The rest of your forces should Get where they need to and annihalate his Forces.

Honestly, you're either going to shoot down the Eldar before they get you, or you're going to use the LR as a decoy.

I'd use Lord Demon's advice, and use it as bait. Position some Melta or Las at the Sperpent as it comes in to fire at the LR. Or tie the thing up some other way.

It's either that, or (the BTs have this, unsure if other Marines do) the LRC can take Blessed Hull as an upgrade, keeping the AV at 14.
