 2000 points Space Marines vs Eldar.

alright. so ill start with my tactics. i usually like to see a big blast.
or some sort of unit that had a dramatic impact on the battle. unfortunatlly
while doing so i tend to fall for traps more often :P my eldar adversary usually
uses 2 to 3 waveserpents. moving flat out on the first turn. these tanks are impossable
to take down. with a coversave and an energy sheild... by turn 2 the waveserpents are
close enough to use their 12 inch move to take out vital units. useing dire avengers to
unload shots on a doomed spacemarine squad. or terminator squad. or firedragons. to take
take out a land raider or vinticator. ontop of this theirs usually a ranger squad picking
off units while holding an objective.. i have played warhammer 40k for 9 years. but im still
getting use to the 5th edition rules. besides that i have just about every modle except for
scout bikers.. so beside the scout bikers dont be scared to revise the list to have any unit
in any quantity.

this is my list.


~~~Chapter Master - terminator armour, 2 lightning claws. 180 pts.
             (with termies deepstriking)

~~~Terminators (10) - cyclone missile launcher, assault cannon. 460 pts.

~~~Space Marines (10) - leader w/ powerfist, combi melta. flamer, heavy bolter.
            drop pod, deathwind launcher, locater beacon 270 pts

~~~Space Marines (10) - leader w/ powerfist, combi melta. flamer, heavy bolter.
            drop pod, deathwind launcher, locater beacon 270 pts

~~~Space Marines (10) - leader w/ powerfist, combi melta. flamer, heavy bolter.
            drop pod, deathwind launcher 260 pts

~~~Sniper scouts (6) - camo coaks. 106 pts

~~~whirlwind - 85 pts.

~~~ Vinticator - extra armour, seige sheild. 140 pts.

~~~devestators (10) 4 missile launchers. 230 pts.

the table is 7 ft by 4 ft. and usually has 4 buildings. a handful of craters and many roads.

If he's ripping you apart with skimmers, why not throw in a few of your own? A couple of Landspeeders chasing his wave serpents with multi-meltas is gunna scar him.
As a new idea, you could play like him and get a couple of Land speeder Storms, run them over to his deployment zone and unload with powerfists!

The posiblilities of those little Scout carrying packages of doom are endless!
... hmmm an army composed of only a captain and 10 scouts with loads of skimmers and fast troops...

your list seems far too slow to deal with eldar.

I'd drop the vindicator ( your whirlwind is much better against eldar) and some of the tactical squad upgrades to get some assault marines.  as said before land speeders are good. A dread w/ assault cannon could also be very helpful if dropped in to his lines after he moves his serpents

I forget if this is allowed in new codex or not, i play DA and DW but 2 assualtcannons rip eldar infantry.drop the vindicator as others mentioned, I'd like to see a landraider to fit in there but that'd be hard(unless he uses fire dragons, then scrap that). and combi-meltas and  flamers don't eally go together imo, maybe all meltas or all flamers. the whirlwind will be very helpful so keep it alive for as long as possible...
