Of course not, why would you bring in Come The Apocalypse Necrons?

Aww, only 2 heavy weapons per squad, for old times' sake, just to avoid some of the ire other players would heap on you? If it's a modeling issue, with not enough heavy weapons to go around, I'm sure you could tear the scatter laser turrets of your no-longer-laser-locked Wave Serpents for 2 upgraded jetbikes per turret.

Concealing for 2+ cover with those Warlocks, I'm sure.

Looks pretty solid all around. Capitalizes on Eldar mobility while still having no shortage of shooty pain. I'd be interested in hearing how the Harlequin contingent stacks up in the long run, or if it'll eventually be replaced for a more min-maxed contingent. As it stands, it meshes with the list, but...

CSM Plog, Tactica

What sphinx of plascrete and adamantium bashed open their skulls and ate up their brains and imagination? Imperator! Imperator!

I'm purchasing brand new Eldar, and have never run the army before, so I think I'll have enough heavy weapons to go around. I just don't really WANT to be 'that guy', and would rather spread the points around to other goodies. I suppose giving up the Vypers would give me more heavies for the bikes, but.. Eh.

Yep!

Seeing the Faolchu's Blade formation come out is what really pushed me towards this army list. The only downside is that I'll probably put the Autarchs in the two Skyweaver squads, which means the Mirage Launchers don't work. I could probably (and will, eventually) make a variant of this using the Windrider Host, and eventually add a bunch of Shining Spears using the Aspect Host.
