at this current point in time, tau are gonna be your best friends. crisis suits and broadsides will aid you well against the fliers and vehicles. also depending on the suits, they can be great against infantry. in my view, tau andeldar go hand in hand with each other, and serve each other well. will there be team matches?

If you can't amaze people with your intelligence... Confuse them with your bullshit!

access to 3 broadsides and 6 suits.

I have made a nasty ass list in my head. What do you guys think:

Eldrad - 4 council - embolden, enhance, 2 desctructor, 2 spear
Feugan

5 Fire Dragons

2x4 Jetbikes, 1 cannon each
5 Dire Avengers - Exarch

8 Warp Spider - Exarch, 2DS, surprise assault
Vyper - SL SC

2 Firestorms
4 Dark Reapers - Exarch, Tempest, Crack shot

Bastion with Quadcannon

against the flier army, that gaves me 2 tanks with intercept, TL 6 S6 shots. Eldrad will hopefully double invis the tanks, from within one of them.

Feugan will role up to the Quadcannon and blow the shit out of a couple fliers - Crack Shot and Tank hunter? yes please reroll hits AND pens.

Fire Dragons will roll up to do what they do inside the other Firestorm.

Dire Avengers will man the quadcannon when not against gay flyer lists, or maybe the dark reaper exarch - tho he will most likely be blasting mofos with his tempest launcher.

DAMN YOU, DICE GODS!

If you read, you would see that they are inside of a Firestorm tank. Not a bad idea against this specific opponent, but I know for a fact there will be a lot of other air. Jetbike armies are fun, tho.

jetbikes are easy to beat flers with they get 1turn of fire before you just follow him about for the rest of the game or you try and get first turn and anhialate as much as you can in 2 turns witch if its full flyers you should be able 2 kill most of his army on the board or anialate him

I could see jetbikes being useful against that army if i get first turn. But their shooting is insufficient compared to the rest of the army - a couple S6 shtos would be in range, that's it. And you'd most likely turbo boost to ensure the charge.

There is no way you will be within 24 inches off deployment, so you cant charge, or shoot with the catapults. Seems too risky.

also the reasons gjb win against flyers is they can simply follow them round the board because flyers have such crap moveability

Not all flyers have bad mobility. Also, You can't charge if you turbo - you arent getting into combat on Turn 1.

I'd personally love to see the Autarch give enemies -1 to reserves, but it doesn't.

Although you can go "all eldar" and forego the -1 to reserves, it does make it a bit harder for you. As others have said, there is no playing nice with a 7 flyer army.
I meant "Dirty" as that nice and I'm envious. Not dirty because its cheap.

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
