To start off, this is my first eldar list and i have only played eldar as a allied detachment for my tau so not very much experience with the army itself. With the list I'm aiming to be able to win the new maelstrom of war missions as that is what I am playing. At first glance to win the new missions your army must a very flexible and fast list so that is what I am aiming for, speed and firepower.

On to the list!

HQ

farseer - jet bike - singing spear - runes of witnessing (I am only taking runes of witnessing if they work the same way as in 6th ed) 135

farseer - jet bike - singing spear - runes of witnessing 135

2 warlocks - jet bike - singing spear 110

TROOPS

10 dire avengers- exarch- battle fortune- wave serpent- scatter laser- shuriken cannon - holo fields 300

9 jet bikes - 3 shuriken cannons 183

9 jet bikes - 3 shuriken cannons 183

3 jet bikes - 1 shuriken cannon 61

4 jet bikes - 1 shuriken cannon 78 (i had just enough points for an extra bike)

ELITES

5 fire dragons - wave serpent -scatter laser - shuriken cannon - holo field 255

FAST ATTACK

crimson hunter - exarch 180

HEAVY SUPPORT

fire prism - shuriken cannon - holo fields - spirit stones 160

fire prism - shuriken cannon - holo fields - spirit stones 160

vaul's wrath support battery - 2 shadow weavers 60

game plan=

The 2 farseers go with the 2 unites of 9 jet bikes, zip around and claim points. One of the farseers take 1 malefic power and summons unites of pink horrors using 6 dice each time. The other farseer is my warlord and roles all 3 powers (to take advantage of psychic focus) on either divination or runes of fate please comment on which one to choose. The 2 warlocks also go with the 9 jet bikes possibly casting conceal depending on how many dice i have left.

I already went over what i am doing with the big jet bike unites so no need to repeat. The 2 small jet bike unites move and turbo boost around 48 inches each turn to grab objectives and complete my tactical objective cards. i would like to keep them alive as long as possible but its fine if they go down mid game to grab me a point.

The dire avengers and fire dragons sit back dealing damage with the wave serpents and move out late game to clear up a couple enemy unites and grab some points for that (they will move out when i get a card that says to kill x number of enemy units).

Crimson hunter provides some air protection and anti tank.

The 2 fire prisms move along my board edge taking out key targets in my enemy's deployment zone.

Finaly the 2 shadow weavers set up in the middle of my deployment zone just being a pain for my opponent, i mean for 60 points why not take 2 essentially rending small blasts.

well thats the list and game plan any ideas are welcome but please no list re-writes or SUPER negative comments, other than that all help is greatly appreciated

Imo i'd drop the shadow weavers the exarch from DAs and his power and the runes on the farseers and then the spirit stones on the fire prisms. This will get you another fire prism so that you can really bring the pain. The platforms are nice and all but a fire prism is better.

basically with that is i have to decide if i want 2 small blasts (yes shadow weavers are small check the faq) or one big blast. but that could work i took the shadow weavers for some scariness in the middle of the board but maybe having another fire prism will be better. I really want the spirit stones now because a 1-3 is snap shots and i cant snap fire a blast so i really want to ignore that same with number 4 if its stunned or shaken i cant remember so maybe i can find the points somewhere else. good idea tho didint even think of another fire prism.

Well the way I look at it is, would you rather have 2 small blast barrage weapons meant to deal with infantry or a tank that can fire multiple types of shots that can deal with anything from hordes to land raiders. Also with both these units being able to score now, would you rather the unit not that is pratically immobile or the unit that can move 12inchs and still fire it's main gun or 18inchs to catpure those far away objectives. I get what you mean about the spirit stones but imho i'd rather another tank in play then not. But that's up to you, I'm only here to offer sugestions :biggrin:

Agree with comments that the Shadow weavers are a bit odd in your list.
What about simply buffing up your Fire Dragon squad ?
With a 3+ armor save, they can be run as something more than a suicide squad.

True they can but there best used at a sort of deathstar with like Eldrad and Fuegen in same squad.
