Think at its core, a list that is based around 2 sets of Storm Avengers and led by Eldrad, with a bit of close combat goodness from the Banshees, is very strong. However you are going to run into a bit of a problem with Eldrad being joined by Yriel in a single (If durable!) unit.

That unit will become the enemy priority because of the number of points locked up in that unit, they will become the target of enemy shooting from the start of the game. All they have to do is immobise their transport, and they won't be such a threat.

Having said that, how you re-divide up the points is more the question. Or you could put Eldrad up the front in that unit of Banhees?

My 2 cents:

Turn 1, you have a maximum of 4 shots from your Serpents to destroy Rhinos or equivalent (new Necrons transports) and only if you do not try to collect a cover save.
Later in the game, you only have the warlocks and Eldrad to destroy armour in close combat...
Not sure if you will fare well

If you drop Yriel and the banshee unit and 1x ranger, this will give you 324pts, i would then suggest you get the following:

6x Fire dragons - 96
6x Fire dragons - 96
Wave serpent w/EML/Spirit stones -130

With this you still have the cc prowess of the council and although it will get shot up you do not have as many points sunk into it. The 2x units of fire dragons should be able to chew through any tanks and heavy infantry the enemy can throw at them.

You also have more manuverability and units on the table. This list is by no way the most Competitive ist but it should do alright against most armies out there if used correctly.

Good luck and have fun.

Actually, come to think of it, is it true that in the new Codex, Necrons are due to get a 4+ armour instead of 3+?

As an Eldar player myself I would like to know how you fair in this battle as I have an upcoming battle against the new Necrons myself. My opponent is currently painting up his new units. I plan to pick up a copy of the new Necron Codex but it would be great to get a first hand account of how the Eldar faired, it would help me to devise my own tatics.

Sup guys

well the battle went better than expected
played killpoints

Eldar - 8 Necrons - 5

He used a horde style army

bout 20 -30 immortals
40 warriors
30 ish scarabs
nightbringer
bout 10 lynchguard
5 destroyers
10 snipers
can't really remember what else he used sorry

but anyway!

one thing i'd say i thought was nasty about the newcrons was...immortals
even with a fortuned council, 1 squad killed yriel and the warlocks

scarabs are insane.....i couldn't believe their rules.

Basically before being raped by immortal the council killed 20 warriors, 10 immortal, 5 destroyers
banshees killed 20 warriors before getting rolled by immortals
dire avengers beat lynchguard in combat...was shocked at that
lynchguard arn't that great, pretty killable

c'tan fell to snipers obvs

all in all I think i was quite lucky he didn't use any tanks

1. reanimation protacol is a bloody wanker, seriously annoying
2. immortals are win
3. scarabs are insane

as for necron tank, i've yet to play them so i can only really comment on the infantry side

all in all...stay in tanks, stay out of their way....attack and flee man ATTACK AND FLEE!!!


thanks for the help guys
