Eldar In reserve

Hey guys i am thinking of doing an entire eldar army that comes in with reserves.
I really want 9 warwalkers with starcannons-Most people at my store play marines.

But i am coming up short on how best to field the rest.

Farseer on bike with usual upgrades/singing spear and guide
scorpions with scuttlers
Altioc on a bike for the +1 reserve rules
and maybey a unit or two of gardians on bikes.

I know warwalkers are fragile but i think the garonteed 1 turn of shooting is awsome and with everything coming in from the board from all different angles i think enemies will feel hard pressed to find a safe spot. I want the enemy to hide in the middle of the board and get surrounded basically.

I swear i saw a thread on an army like this before but i lost it somehow, if anyone sees somthing similar pls leave the link, otherwise ideas and critisism are more than welcome.

Might check out the Army list section... There are quite a few in there for different point levels... Warp Spiders work well against Assault Marines, as the enemy may never get close, and they can use their assault phase jump on the turn they Deep Strike, very nice!

A wave serpent with some Fire Dragons can run in to bust a tank too, think about putting that Autrach with them. I wouldn't use Pathfinders in this list, as they aren't as mobile and may run into some trouble.

I kinda liked "goobi2's Mega Mech list (currently on page 2 of Army list) with the changes suggested by TKE it is a pretty good list. Just take a look and change what you need to fit your style.

I like the idea. It's worth considering is that with a second Autarch you can add +2 to your Reserves rolls. It might not be worth losing the Farseer though so it's really up to you. . .

"Playing Warhammer is just like making love. It's usually done on a table and afterwards you always feel great shame. Plus like most fun things the older you get the less fun it becomes. So remember, always wear a condom while playing Warhammer - I've got mine on now."

Ignore the rangers. If you're having a fast moving come in from reserves force, 2 guardian squaddies in serpents.

I really like this idea, if you ever make this list youll have to tell me how it goes. I might try something like that for my chaos.
