I'm not disagreeing with you but can you explain why you would take this instead?

Just like to understand how other people use eldar

Farseer on jetbike with other jetbikes for look out sir, takes guide and prescience for the Hornets (wave serpents already twin linked). The two pulse lasers on the Hornets cost the same as your load out but put out 4 Str 8 AP2 shots each. BS 4 with twin links hits 8 of 9 times. You have 8 Str 8 AP2, avg 9 Str 7 AP- ignores cover, 8 Str 6 AP-, 6 Str 6 AP5 Bladestorm, and 8 Str 4 AP5 Bladestorm all twin linked (34.6 hits). When the Dire Avengers dismount they add another 20 Str 4 AP 5 Bladestorm. Everything can start as a Fast Skimmer so nothing gets left behind. Except for the jetbikes you can ignore enemy Str 4 shooting.

I was looking at the old rules for the hornet... Wow that makes sense with the 2 pulse lasers, i think its a cheap unit.

For once I am going to listen to someone advice on here and take that list

Thank you :)
