Eldar Hybrid List Viable?
So this is my 1k Eldar list that I plan to finish painting when I switch back.
Farseer - Doom, Singing Spear, RoW
4 Dragons + 1 Exarch - Heavy Flamer, Wave Serpent, Stone, Shuriken Cannons
10 Avengers - Wave Serpent, Stone, Shuriken Cannons
10 Storm Guardians - flamer, fusion gun, warlock, singing spear, destructor, Wave Serpent, Stone, Shuriken Cannons
2 Fire Prism's
I put the farseer in with the Avengers so they have an anti-tank shot. I like the list from when I played it and want to stick to it because it is the fastest road to finishing 1000 points painted. I still want to use scorpions and rangers when I expand and have been thinking about building my second 1000 points as footdar. the 11th company pod cast had a good recap of the codex just recently and ultimately they concluded footdar is the way to go in the twilight of 5th edition. Over on the Spirit Chamber Yriel has had great success with running a hybrid list (though I'm sure most of the credit goes to his experience as a player).
At any rate I've been thinking of adding a unit of wraithguard as troops, and a unit of pathfinders. An infiltrating Scorpion unit and Eldrad leaves me with some points to beef up my avenger squad with an exarch and add another dragon with a few points to spare on some star engines for so of my vehicles. I really want to include a unit of scorpions and figured they could support the unit of wraithguard in assaults should they need it. Eldrad would be attached to the wraithguard fortuning both the scorpions and wraithguard and doing what he does best. It seems harlies are the way to go but I want to finish painting up my unit of scorpions.
Any thoughts or ideas of developing my army this way?
