Gonna want fortune on the council and enhance I would drop the spears for more coucil members spirit stones are useless as you have only 1 power.
At 1850 I would spend 500 max on allies.
That's 1350 to make a really good eldar list.
I would probably have 3 lots of 3 bikes 3 prisms maybe 1 falcon or night spinner and then the council with remaining points.
I would try and get fire warrioirs a devil fish and maybe have broadsides instead of the hammer head.
Oh I almost forget 2 fire dragonz squads in serpants.
Hope this helps.

hey acer

I play both tau and eldar so i think i may be able to help you out here :)

I'll start with tau

try out 2-3 Broadsides instead of the hammerhead. They offer great AT and can even take the odd flier (TL railguns can make the biggest flier crap itself)

Firewarriors - Drop all extra gear. 12 man team with a shas'ui is all you need. Saves you points, still getting great firepower.
You may want to invest in a Aegis for these guys. makes them a great static defence for your home obj.
I'd drop the IA on your Shas'el and instead of all those weapons stick with the following
TL missle pod
Fusion gun
Plasma rifle
flamer

keep to those and make some nce combos out of them. you dont wanna make this guy too expensive as he is just a slightly better xv8

As for what the seermaster suggested about the devilfish. I wouldn't you'll be wanting a nice little firebase. flinging out 24 str 5 shot into light tank and infantry alike

Eldar

You'll be needing fortune. Once that council gets fortune they are a pure menace to society and will bring you great joy to use :) they should be fine with the number you have. maybe 1 more but it's totally fine i think.

Drop those shining spears. they aren't shining anywhere. OH LOOK AT US WE'RE REALLY COOL...a single volley later and they're gone. Awesome unit, not so great in game.

You seem to lack options to really kill anything. The guardians are obviously for obj taking, but wont kill much. i assume you were relying on your council and spears to munch?

Perhaps push in 2 basic fire prisms. great little tanks. able to do great damage.

All in all you're quite light on troops. I would consider fixing this. maybe squeezing in another squad of jetbikes.

good luck
