You haunt my in-box like an ex-girl friend could only dream of.
Thank you Captain Politically Correct.
Given that our only troops choices other then the DA's and Guardians is Rangers, you really can't go wrong with the box.
If you add one box of DA's, build it as 2 units (2 exarchs with 4 DA's each) from the box, then you can mix and match your DA's to fit your needs. 2 Exarchs, 2 units of 7 each? 3 exarchs, 3 units of 5 each?
Jetbikes are also troops, and Wraithguard can be fielded as a scoring unit too, although you need to be wealthy if you want to go down that route .
The problem you have with fielding Dire Avengers in the manner you have described above is that unless you want to field multiple Dire Avenger/Falcon combinations, they work at their best when fielded in full sized squads in my view, so if you do not like the Dire Avenger/Falcon combination you are always going to end up with five figures that you cannot use, hence why I feel the battleforce is such a counter productive purchase.
Is the eldar battleforce worth getting?
I don't want to seem rude but if I wanted to take part in talking about why the eldar codex needs to be better I'd read pretty much any thread in the Eldar forum.
