You have a simple balanced list. Good at the generalistic approach, yet not extremely strong at anything (dont get me wrong! That's good!).

Here is am unofficial "powergaming" test : http://www.geocities.com/newpaintbrush/puritytest.htm

I really like your list though. Anyone who can distinguish the difference would know it's not.

If anything this list seems a little underpowered to me.
I'd feel a little vulnerable with so few honor guards.
And also IMHO you some more BIG boomsticks.

But nah, if someone is calling you a power gamer what THAT list,
you need find someone else to play with cuz they are obiously
a whiny beeyotch that can't play.

Powergaming refers to the attitude of a person, typified by a "win, win, win at all costs!" mentality. Sorta like a khorne beserker but winning instead of killing/maiming.
That's the most apt description of a powergamer I've ever heard! Instead of worshipping Khorne, they worship Pwn (pronounced "own"). "Cheese for the cheese god! More wins for Pwn!"

ROTFLOL!!!! That one's going in my sig...
Due to an error in translation, the isolated colony of T'ves'kal'dai mistakenly worshiped the greater goose for seven generations. Reeducation efforts continue.

Ive found that most eldar players who dont use the Starcannon-0-ramma list call everyone else cheese, cause in comparison....we are. the eldar list needs an overhaul, and the tau got one first(??) so they are a little bitter at us. they used to be the IT xeno, but now the tau are. once they get new codex, they'll calm down, and we can call cheese at them. its the circle of life.

I haven't seen any eldar army, period, place in a tournament without maxing out on starcannons in several years. Its literally the perfect weapon, high strength low AP high rate of fire long range, and its literally the only thing that is keeping eldar even remotely able to hold their own.

I wouldn't call tau cheesy though, I don't think we have any true power builds to compete with other OTT armies.

I hope your not a powergamer because I have almost the exact same list but more FW and I haven't exactly bought it all yet
the enemy of my enemy's enemy is my enemy.....i think

May not your shot be positioned by your enemy, but your enemy positioned by your shot.
