Default Help writing 1500pt Eldar

Thanks to a good trade, I've come into quite a bit of Eldar,

Problem is I cant write a good list to save my life

Here's what I've got, (*** Denotes weapons not assembled, so can have essentially anything)

Falcon ***
Wraithlord ***
Vyper x 2 ***
War Walker x2 ***
Harlequins x5 (4 Harley's + Troupe Master)
Guardians x24 with 2 Weapon Platforms *** (2 X 12)
Dire Avengers X20 (2 x 12, Exarch ***)
Fire Dragons x6 (5 FD + Exarch with Firepike)
Howling Banshees x5 (NO Exarch )
Striking Scorpions x6 (5 SS + Exarch ***)
Swooping Hawks x6 (5 SH + Exarch)
Dark Reapers x5 (4 DR + Exarch ***)
Warp Spiders x5 (4 WS + Exarch with TL Spinners)
Wave Serpent (TL Shuriken Catapults)
Fire Prism
Prince Yriel

Very gratefull for any help,

Yes, I know having only 1 W. Serpent is really not enough.
My thinking would be:
Put the Fire Dragons in the Falcon (Dunno what to arm the Falcon with), as an Anti-Tank/Armour
DO NOT put Banshee's, Scorpions or Harley's in transport, as Transport is not "Open Topped" so unit cannot Disembark & Assualt in the same turn, making them sitting ducks in between,

... And thats as far as I got.

Seriously, any help would be Highly appreciated.

OH, also if people would be so kind as to explain the "Why's" of anything they suggest, It would also be appreciated.

While I don't have time to help with the list right now I thought I should point out that you just need to get the tank where its going and disembark them on the turn you want to charge. If it has a cover save getting there then you have a good chance of them not even getting shot out.

PS: if you send the banshees up put yirel with them.

The Eldar, more than any other army, should not only look at the output of each unit individually, but the synergy of multiple units together and their role in the force as a whole. - Fable

I would deploy a unit of 6 Dire Avengers in your falcon rather than the fire dragons.
Basically this will sit on your home objective (or a close objective) and if in danger of being assaulted disembark the DA's so that they can bladestorm\defend whatever is nessessary to take down that unit and keep your objective.

Fire Prisms work best in pairs so that you can combine the beam to make it more powerful, plus it means if you deploy with LOS to each other, one can be in the open (well not open as in sitting duck open) but with LOS to the enemy or a fire lane then they are more protected and effective.

War walkers get scatter lasers as these are not twin linked you will get many strength 6(IIRC) shots, I would get a squad of 3 for 180 points (Bargain)

Thats all from the top of my head (my friend is an Eldar player and have listened to him drone on and on about them for a long time now.)
