Default Jetbike issue.

How do I beat a jetbike heavy Eldar army? I'm getting worried soon...

Twin ionheads, 3 sniper drone teams.
They're still only MEQ's basically, all they really get is high speed.

If you play mech tau, don't worry, unless they bring half a gazillion witchblades/singing spears.

Don't fire at bikes that have turbo-boosted unless you have no other target. A 3+ re-rollable invulnerable save is very hard to crack.
And remember, jetbikes are expensive, being just under 2 and half FW in price.

I`ll add something to this nearly entirely correct statement: Don`t fire with your LOW AP weapons at turbo-boosted Jetbikes. FoF works well (same chances as with normal Space Marines), as do Deathrains (they even Instakill characters!).

Besides, make sure you know all the Jetbike rules, too - in case your opponent tries to cheat (with or without intent). To make use of their invulnerable save for example, they must have moved at least 18" in a straight line...

Good point CmdrBonesaw.

One thing I forgot to mention earlier: Eldar jetbikes can JSJ (12" move/6" jump/assault).

I agree entirely with Bonesaw about the FoF, best way to crack hard targets with invulnerable's only.
(Although a better way is to play a pure Grey Knight force, saw one of them once rip through a Necron Destoyer based army)
