as long as i get some tasty tactics for eldar i am in
luckily for you mate i am the master of eldar tactics :)
Strategy 1 : Two FARSEERS with spirit stones guide, fortune and doom and two 15 man DIRE AVENGER squads with exarch with dual shireken catapults in. First tactic - Guide both units and doom 2 enemy units rip forth 22 shots from each squad with rerolls to hit and wound. Do this every turn untill one unit loses half or more of its men when this happens one of your farseers substitutes using doom or guide and fortunes them along with another one of your choice. Continue to do this and you will mow down quite alot of units.
Strategy 2 : You can use this in conjunction with strategy 1. Full 10 man STRIKING SCORPION squad with shadowstrike so they can infiltrate and an exarch with a biting blade for an extra strength(s). This should give you an infiltrating eldar squad with 4 strength 4 attacks at initiative 5 each on the charge and the exarch has 4 maximum strength 8 attacks at initiative 6 on the charge. This will rip apart any squad you meet.
Strategy 3 : You can use this in conjunction with the other two strategies. 6 man FIRE DRAGONS squad with an exarch with a firepike and tank hunters. Go after tanks and use all your melta weapons to obliterate them - easy. You can also use these to kill lone hq's as you don't give them any armour saves.
Strategy 4 - You can use this in conjunction with the other three strategies. 5 man SHINING SPEAR squad with an exarch for an extra attack with withdraw. So you charge into combat with 17 strength 6 power weapon attacks stay in combat intil your next turn but on the second turn of combat you won't have the strength 6 power weapons. So on your next turn after charging use your withdraw power (hit and run) and charge back into assault with your strength 6 power weapons or go after a new target.
