Default 500 point list

Not long been collecting Eldar and a friend has laid down the challenge of a 500 point battle

I know this doesn’t give you tons of freedom but here is what i was thinking

He has a few armies to choose from so it could be Blood angels, Space wolves or Orks.

As I have yet to battle with my space elves and still need to buy models I’m looking for direction and advice! All criticism and suggestions would be greatly received.

Thanks.

Proposed list.

Farseer [HQ] (160)
+ The Spirit Stone of Anath'lan
+ singing spear
+ Runes of warding
+ Runes of witnessing
+ Eldar jet bike

10 Dire Avengers [Troop] (145)
+ Dire Avenger Exarch
+ twin-linked avenger shuriken catapult

10 Guardian Defenders [Troop] (110)
+ scatter laser

5 Windrider Guardians [Troop] (85)

He is really expensive, run him naked with spear and bike.

10 Dire Avengers [Troop] (145)
+ Dire Avenger Exarch
+ twin-linked avenger shuriken catapult

Fine. if you need 5 points maybe take away the exarch upgrade he is BS5 not entirely needed the Twin link

10 Guardian Defenders [Troop] (110)
+ scatter laser

Not much anti tank in your list look at changing the scatter laser to a bright lance.

5 Windrider Guardians [Troop] (85)

Add a bike and add 2 cannons from points saved from farseer.
This should come in under 500 points still and will give you more strength.

Play the Game Fool!!

would it be worth losing the exarch altogether and adding a warlock into the guardians with the points saved from the farseer and exarch?

The Dire Avenger exarch is completely unnecessary. 2 shots hitting on 2+ instead of 3+ is not worth the 10 points.

Warlocks are always good, since the primaris power is amazing for them! Conceal making Guardians in cover have a 3+ cover save! can't go wrong.

DAMN YOU, DICE GODS!

Is this a competitive match if so we could recommend a better suited list since you haven't bought models. If not i would personally stay with a scatter laser not many thanks are going to be over armor 12 at 500 points. Scatter lasers from the guardians and shuriken cannons from the jetbikes will do grand

6th Edition. 7th Edition

Eldar. Eldar
W14-D1-L4. W2-D0-L0

Imperial guard
W3-D2-L1

Space marine's
W0-D0-L0
