I have been trying to work this out as a viable idea for Eldar Monstrous Creature or higher hunting unit. I am asking our fellow members here for any feedback on this.

Would this work?

1 Autarch on Jetbike with Shining Spear Lance & Banshee Mask
1 Shining Spear Exarch with Star Lance
5 Shining Spears with Lances

The idea here is to have the autarch join the unit & then have them charge into the MC preferably on its blind side with less armour. Not be overwatched due to the Autarch & Banshee Mask pound the MC in CC & hopefully finish it off in 1 round, having bonus's with everyone striking with Lances & then hop into cover.

I love that particular unit. They can go after any big heavy unit, really. getting the shot in before the charge helps a lot also.

Monstrous Creatures, however, don't have 'blind sides' or less armor. Only vehicles operate that way.

You can, but given that Eldar laugh in the face of all Monstrous Creatures ever anyway (Bladestorm on everything that isn't Destroyer or Monofilament, which are two premier anti-things-with-a-toughness qualities, will do that), I don't think it's strictly necessary; I mean, if you're doing it because you like the models, all power to you, but it's a very inefficient way to hunt monsters in the Eldar codex.

As Midnightsun said. My monsterhunters from my latest game against nids was spelled Dire Avengers. My two squads handled a mawloc and two trygons. Bladestorm is realy the only thing you need.
