So this is my latest Eldar list which I'm in the middle of painting. I'm about to play test it next week with a friend of mine against his Templars. What weakness do you see against Marines?

Comments appreciated:)

Firstly, you don't need to post all the special rules for each model and what they do ;)

Your Farseer has three powers, you can only use two per turn so bear this in mind. Also, mind war isn't that good as the models you'll target will have high leadership any way.

6 Striking Scorpions won't last long. If you're on foot take 8 and they will take heavy losses before they reach enemy lines, you need a transport to get this assault unit into assault quicker or you'll spend more turns foot slogging than in assault.

You don't need the exarch with the dragons, they are a throw away unit and your paying high premium to get tank hunters when you don't really need it. Also for those extra points I'd go brightlances.

Do you really need enhance on the wraithgurd which is a shooting unit?

Defend goes better with shimmer shield for Dire Avengers. Also on foot? 4+ armour save? You'll have to use terrain a lot to save them with the high amount of ap4 weapons.

I would drop crack shot as fast shot disallows it and you'd be wanting to use that majority of the time.

Thanks for the input. I took out the rule blurbs.

You make some good points so I will adjust. I wish Serpents were not so expensive.

Serpents are very expensive, but that for that extra 10 points may as well go brightlance. I use brightlance and shuriken cannons on mine, good for vehicles and anti infantry. I'm still not a massive fan of the brightlance, buts its better against tougher armour than the EML would be.
