Well, how'd you do Rob? And why change from Wraithlords to Vibro Cannnons? Don't know enough about Eldar to really C & C.

hmmm i can see that you were definitely preparing for some nidzilla lists!

what are your farseers dooming/fortuning?

write up what your general idea and tactic is with your army i.e. war walkers sit back and shoot or walk up with the farseers?

seeing as your pathfinders are staying still and your scorpions are infiltrating.. your only walking up the battlefield with four war walkers (i am guessing), two farseers, one squad of dire avengers and one of harlies. The harlies cannot even shoot.. and the avengers will get shot up. Your core army seems a bit weak is what i am saying i guess.

you should look at investing in some transports (not fully mech but a nice mix is both lethal, fluffy, and not cheesy).

gimme some battle reports/tactics.

I'd imagine you got pretty stomped with that list.

Just doesn't seem super competitive (even though you may not be going for that, but then... why go to the GT?).

Why the scorpions? Is there a specific role that you wanted them to fill?

Let us know how you did!

I really was hoping to run into a nidzilla list or two, of course that never actualy happened. 3 of my 5 picks were numbers lists. Most of what i had was really geared toward monsterous creature killing. The scorpians are there because i ran out of money. 1 farseer was to support harlequins and other was for rangers. The low point of my game was being killed to the man by the end of the third turn against a mostly grey knights list. The high point was a major defeat against witch hunters. I was either the lowest or second lowest scoring player there with 3 points after 5 games.

no way to go but up now man!

Kudos to you for actually making it to a tournament.

Now time to hone the list and skills needed to place better!

small suggestion is to use the farseer to doom and guide units and walk right up the middle of the battlefield with the walkers and avengers. maybe get some more avengers in there though.. otherwise just keep working with it. some eldar players do fantastically well as footsloggers. keep us posted.

Not bad. Getting models painted is more than most seem to achieve (I'm looking at you Bruce and Kyle).

I painted a wolf today. But it looks retarded. I may have to get painting lessons.

they arent much, but the pathfinders are so far the best units i have painted thus far. The rest of the army was painted in less than a week just before the tournament. They also look much better at tabletop distance than they do in the closeup.
