Help with Eldar

707 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Damned Fist
My 12yr. old son received some GW gift certificates for Christmas and is anxious to spend them. I was just wondering if there are any Eldar players out there who can offer him some direction in what he can get to improve his list?

HQ: Eldrad
Autarch with swooping Hawk wings

Tr: 12 Guardians with warlock
12 Dire Avengers

El: 6 Howling Banshees (Transported in a Falcon)
6 Fire Dragons (Also in a falcon)

Hv. Wraithlord
2 Falcons (noted above)

Fa: Vyper

So..., now what? Harlequins?, Swooping Hawks.., tell us what 9ideas you have and why?

Thanks all:victory:

How about a Serpent for those DA's and another set of Guardians and a couple of weapon platforms. Swooping Hawks would also work well in this list.

The extra Serpent will not only make your DA's more powerful, but it will also help reduce the amount of enemy firepower directed at your Falcons and your other Elite units. The extra bit of Guardian Defenders is just for redundancy. The Defenders are not superb units, but when massed they can be pretty mean. I mentioned the Weapons Platforms because I didn't see them in your list. I recommend Scatter Lasers.

If an Elite unit is what you guys have in mind, then yeah, the Hawks should do well, and give the Autarch a unit to play with.
hahahaha... No, Harlies are not cheating. They are very, very good at what they do, and many players will field more than one unit for just this reason. Keep in mind that you do get what you pay for and Harlies are not inexpensive.
