So its been a while since I played 40k - but was planning on getting involved again with my first 40k love - Eldar, specifically Ulthwe. Now I have read that mammoth eldar tactica - some very useful thought, but one stands out that I am finding particularly disparaging.... Defenders in a Wave serpent seem a no no. I love Guardians, the models are wonderful and very consistent, I really dont like the 'travel circus' riot of colour eldar armies...

To the point - I would appreciate any advice on this total mech eldar army - heavily guardian themed - the thinking is the defenders and serpents destroy targets by weight of fire, with cannons and warlock spear busting the occassional transport or rear armour. Destructor is on warlocks as I want to use the defenders aggressively - and while not as efficent as stormies, this defender set up is much more flexibe on the battle field... and eldar do tend to suffer from over specialisation.... the avengers are just some cool elite black defenders really, joined by the farseer and adding 30 shots onto an assult when 2 defender squads jump out and fire 36 shot, 6 shuriken cannon and 2 heavy flamer. and their tanks guns. Points are tight - I wanted lots of bodies.

Would it be any good? Remotly competitive? Im really not keen on the idea of jet bikes or aspects... so what the thoughts? Its a bit of an all comers list - I would play against, marines, mech guard, orks, chaos and occassionally necrons...

Advice would be appreciated...
