New player for Eldar need help, 1000

If it ain't human, and it ain't from the warp, then it must be Xenos.

From what I've seen, heard, and read your best bet is to go with 2 Battle forces and then branch out from there with Wave Serpents and whatever specialized squads you like/deem necessary for your forces...
Eldar: 9000 points

Khador: 300 points

Ogre Kingdoms: 3500 points

A little advice would be to drop the bright lance from the guardian squad andswitch it with thewave serpents EML (I know there is a points difference but you may need to tweak)

The reason for this is two fold.

1 guardians miss (a lot!!) so when you fire your one shot bright lance it will miss no doubt. Putting it twin linked on the wave serpent twin linked will give you a re roll.

2 Also you have your bright lances for one purpose and that is to crack the biggest heaviest armoured tank on the table. Youll want to be aiming at things with a 12 plus armour (otherwise you could be using EMLS). having it on the wve serpent allows you speed around and find that blasted Landraider. Also if the brightlance is in the squad you will be forced to shoot the whole squad at it (and hearing lots of pings as your shurikens do nothing). Having an eml in the squad allows you to fire at he same target either krak if you fancy it or plasma, getting your S4 blast and pinning. This way it can be combined with the swuads shooting.

Also how many warp spiders you bringing? Because Im thinking this could be an idea for me to drop a wave serpent from my usual list for a few spiders as it will giv me mobility and have the guardians to sit an hold objectives

Thanks for the comments lads.
Im bringing 6x warp spiders and im bringing the warp spiders because i used my friends army and the warp spiders did brilliant. I was thinking though about trying to squeeze in hit and run but not sure yet.

Also ye what you said about the bright lance on the serpents make sense so will do that.

The other question i would like to ask about is and ino its wildly debated subject but which do you guys think is better striking scorpions, banshees or harlequins.

Thanks for the comments keep them coming.
