I know this isn't advice but - it's generally not a good idea to tell us (your opponents: myself and frodo) exactly what you're putting on the board. We'll just come up with specific ways to deal with it. Surprise is good.

HQ
Autarch
Farseer
Warlock

*** The Autarch and Farseer make for good HQ's. The Avatar is pretty good also, but not as easy to use effectively as these two. I use one of each in my 2250 army. How do you normally kit them out?

ELITES
10 Scorpions - exarch
6 Banshees - exarch
6 Fire Dragons - exarch

*** Considering their transportation options, I'd think that you'll need a Serpent to get the Banshees or Dragons where they can do some good. Otherwise, good solid choices. Usually though, as a combat unit, Banshees do better at full strength. Really think about adding a Serpent for them.

TROOPS
10 Dire Avengers
8 Dire Avengers
10 Guardians
6 Rangers

*** These are very serviceable units. I field 2 units of Avengers, 2 of Storm Guardians, and 2 Guardian Jetbike squads. I have learned to respect the Rangers. What platform do you have for your Guardians, and how do you equip your DA Exarchs?

HEAVY
Falcon - shuriken cannon, bright lance
Wraithlord - wraithsword, bright lance
Wraithlord - 2 bright lances

*** As was mentioned before, duplicate weapons on the Wraithlord is a waste, as is the Brightlance on the Falcon. Stick with either a Star Cannon or a Scatter Laser. I use the Scatter Laser and a Shuricannon for the 7 Str6 shots in addition to the Pulse Laser. The Wraithlords really need a secondary 'main' weapon to be truly useful. I recommend an Eldar Missile Launcher, though many prefer Star Cannons in this role. The Wraithsword is a bit iffy to me, but it does make for a very very cool model, and that is definitely worth losing a little efficiency.

When you get the chance, try giving us a more detailed list for the army you want to field. Don't worry about your buds, as they'll most likely lose anyway, giving you more than just bragging rights. :laugh:

C&C!

I'd say give your autarch a jet bike, mandiblasters, laser lance and a reper launcher. You move 12, shot shurikens on the bike, reaper launcher, assault 12 (I think) with 6 str 8 attacks. Any marine will die. It's a powerweapon at str 8. They fail one inv save and they die. for 155 points, I reckon that's hell worth it.

Yeah. I had a character bash with some snapperhead called Dylan. He chose his Calgar. I won the first turn roll and killed him in that same turn. He had to take 3 5+ invulnerables. Failed one. Instant death.

EDIT: And with WS6, he can get lots of shots in.

I never thought that the reaper launcher would be mounted on the bike until now... hah

The problem is that the Reaper Launcher is NOT mounted on the bike (thus allowing for move & fire). It's an upgrade for the Autarch and not the bike, thus if the Autarch moves, it cannot fire. The Reaper Launcher and a Jetbike do not make a good combo. Still, there are some that refute this, but the entries/rules make no mention of the bike receiving the Reaper Launchers as a substitute for the twin shuricats. Until that is made clear, the reaper is not part of the bike. Stick with a fusion gun, jetbike, lance, mandiblasters.
