Army List – The Smokewind Host Eldar

Following on from some of the other army lists I’ve posted, I dug out my copy of Codex Eldar and put together a 2000 point list to go with the others.

I did briefly play with an Eldar Army, briefly and with little success about for or five years ago. This has some similarities to the army I tried to build then but is adapted and I hope is a bit more potent.

I would like to have included a Wraithlord, as it’s an awesome model, but I’m not sure they are cost-effective points wise and the wraith sight rule is a constant niggle.

Any thoughts?
