Hi, I am returning to the hobby after 9 years (or more) and have an Eldar Army. The thing is that I got a lot to paint yet and I want to do the best army with what I have before buying (as I want to finish painting before getting more models).

This is what I got.
1 Eldrad Ulthran
1 Asurmen
1 Farseer w/singing spear
2 Warlocks singing spear/ witchblade
20 Guardian Defenders
10 Guardian Storm 2 power blades/1 flamer/1 fusion
9 Dire Avangers +1 Exarch dire sword and pistol
8 Fire dragons +1 Exarch fire pike
8 Scorpions + 1 Exarch Claw and pistol (to be converted to chainsaw)
8 Banshees +1 Exarch Executioner
9 Rangers
3 Windrider catapults
1 wave serpent starcannon and shuriken cannon
1 falcon bright lance and catapults
1 vyper eldar missile and catapults
2 Shining spears +1 Exarch Star lance
13 Swooping hawks + 1 Exarch Hawk's Talon? (fincast model)
8 warp spiders + Exarch twinlinked death spinners and powerblades
Dark Reapers 4 + 2 Exarch eldar missile launcher /tempest launcher
3 wraithlord 1 star cannon catapult and flamer /1 star cannon catapult and flamer/ 1scatter lasser 1 shuriken cannon catapult and flamer.

Please help me! And thank you for all. :victory:

I am basically in the same boat.

these days, if you bundle your stuff in certain ways,
then you get certain bonuses.
this is gw corporate selling models, for the most part.

for example
you have your vyper that you will need to run certain formations
but not the other stuff you need like a ton more guardians and support weapons.

you have a bunch of aspects.
love the hawks man, i want some but never got them and now...
also can't justify buying anything new, like you.

anyways,
now you can bundle those aspects into groups of three units
into aspect hosts and get +1 to either ws or bs
for the entire host.
So one host = +1 bs
another host =+1 ws...

You have a few combinations for +1 bs
and you can have as many aspect hosts as you want, so far as I know,
but for +1 ws, well, you will need to figure that out.

For me,
as I am not into max-min dicehammer break the rules to win "competition",
I just collect, paint and assemble armies what I like and that represent the 40k universe so far as I understand it...
(see my Ork army thread for an example).

So, looking at your collection,
I would convert and pose and base special
in these three bundles roughly speaking:

reapers (2 squads or rip up one exarch to build an autarch)
dragons
wave serpent
dire avengers
warp spiders
swooping hawks (maybe not all of them or try to build two units)
(if you build 6 units u can get 2 aspect hosts, i would aim for that)
use that finecast exarch to build a cool autarch and give him a cool gun, e.g. reaper launcher maybe?

farseer
warlocks
guardians (do you have platforms?)
Shining spears
Windriders
falcon
vyper

rangers
cc aspects (somehow, try to get three units for another host if possible, but as is you might put them into this contingent)
storm guards
the wraithlords (all of them!)
(a wraithlord can actually be an army commander I think.. again, may be wrong! But I think it would be cool to have a wraithlord army commander and his bodyguard all modeled up and I would picture this group all stealthy)

as I see it,
and again I hope that someone might correct me here,
each of these three bundles is actually playable and legal on its own,
but I am not sure about that.

you could shuffle the wave serpent, especially,
if you played just part of the list at a time.
