Maybe SOME type of direction would be useful.. What models do you have? what strategies do you excel with? It sounds like mid field will be filled by IG, so stick to long range fire (Guardians, tanks, warwalkers, fliers), and fill the gaps for what IG isn't taking (if he is running plasma gunline, run anti-tank. If he is running melta, run anti-tank/MC, etc. Khorne will WANT infantry, so take things that won't kill their targets.

Well, as I said before, leave the front line to the Khorne. IG will hold mid field, so stick with your highest powered, farthest range weaponry. Fire Prisms are great, Crimson Hunters, Vypers, Wraithknights, and Wave serpent DAVU spam would be my suggestion.

Lots of S6 for handling fliers, a couple fliers of your own, and some high Strength weapons (barebones Wraightknight and Fire Prisms) for dealing with those AV13+ targets on the field.

LOL, well a 10 man reaper squad, and illic would definitely not be expected.

Run the reapers INSIDE a bastion - gives AV14 instead of T3! The quad-gun wouldn't be to useful, but perhaps a comms relay would? Or run a landing pad, and give them the 4+ invul :p

ok first draft of a list

HQ
illic nightspear

troops
6x pathfinders
5x rangers
5x rangers

fast attack
6x swoopin hawks (exarch, hawks tallon)
6x shining spears (exarch, star lance, h&r)

heavy support
2x fire prisms (cannon, holo fields)
10x dark reapers (exarch, fast shot)

think this explains itself

Storm guardians are worthless. Let the S5 3A khorne monsters handle that. Eldar doesn't excel at combat, so when paired with combatty allies, let them do that. Play to your strengths still, even though you are trying to switch things up.

Your spears will get torn up. They will get into combat range way before the Khorne guys will, so they will be destroyed before they even attack. AGAIN play to your stengths, unless this is a for fun game.

if you have 200 points, maybe take another unit of Hawks, or Spiders (small as well), and then either take more rangers, or upgrade some to pathfinders, or both! ;) You can sit back and AP1 their MC's to death, take out the biggest AP3 threat with your DR, and pick off a couple of their heaviest tank threats with your fire prisms. Just remember to keep your target priority, and take care of deep striking flamers - tis the bane of your ranger list!
