Default Eldar Phoenix Lord Fuegan, worth the points?

(I hope that this is the proper part of the forum for this question)

I am now posting my first question for all those who can help with Eldar tactics!

Well, i think the Phoenix Lords are awesome characters, however i have no idea if some of them are really good to put in the field or if some are just not worth the points.
Without going into detail, i am thinking about adding Fuegan "burning lance" into my army but i would first like 2 take some precautions and learn about his skills on the field and if he is worth buying (or maybe if i should consider a different Phoenix Lord, of course it all depends on the army).
If there is already a forum thread on Phoenix Lords i wouldnt mind if u linked me 2 that as well.

thanks

An Exarch does everything that he does.

Yeah, he gives a unit a bit of extra hitting power, and a big range Melta is always useful, but anything that he's joining doesn't really need any more anti-tank anyway, and he loses most of his benefits in another unit.

He's just far too expensive to have if you're playing to win - another unit of Fragons in a Falcon/Serpent, will do much more for not much more.

As above. The Phoenix Lords are fun but too expensive to usually justify it. Were you wanting him just for the anti tank options?

Thanks for the replies.... and yes SonofMalice, i was attracted to his anti-tank abilities... but if an exarch seems to do just fine... i guess its not really worth the points.... i mean... im a fun dude and all but..... i really would like an army that wins xD

For me the only Phoenix Lord who can pull their weight in Jain Zar as she's a murder beast. Need to get her close to things though.

The fact that he has Feel No Pain is nice...but the only Phoenix Lord I'd only ever think of using is Maugan Ra - and even then, not if I was writing a truly Competitive list.
