banchees or scorps hmmm banchees are usually better vs space marines and armored stuff while scorps are good against weaker troops when they are outnumbered.  use either on depending on who you face.

Considering about half the people who play WH40K are SM players I would go the Banshees. Also, I reckon that Banshees wipe the floor with Scorpions but thats just me :)

Really i would say u take Scorpions who play at Gamesworkshop in Veterens night or tournies are good and not 2 many of them field marines ( out for 18 veteran battles 2 of them were marines that i faced)

i agree with Unforgotten_Caste on this one...definitely scorps...even though most people play marines the experienced warhammer player's will most likely not play marines...

1st at least 50% of the players in golden demon were SM players.
2nd what about the rest of the points in the army and should i use exarch on the scorpion squad?

ok im going to lay off the scorps vs. banshees options and tell this guy what he wants to hear...

if you have guardians and a seer council then your well of as some first points but your going to want some long range shooters, i would recommend both reapers and rangers, you can swap depending on if the troops can be pinned or not.  then youll need something to absorb firepower, i would personally choose either a wraithlord, wraithguard, or some warpspiders.  the wraiths are obvious but let me tell you why warps, if you can move as fast a warps can you can give you opponent a target quick wich will make him not think to utilize mobility, once you have the cornering force of mobility take some vipers or a falcon with fire dragons and take out his armored vehicles and then mob up with loads and loads of shreiken fire...

this is what i probably going to use

2 farseer  (both with mind war and 2 pistol)
3 warlocks  (3 augment)157p
10 def guardians with brightlance 130p
2x5 guardians storm squad with 2 flamers 92p
5 wraithguards with warlock (conseal) 206p
2x1 vypers with starcannons with starcannons and spirit stones 150p
5 scorpions (no exarch) 80
5 dark reepers 185p
1000p

do you guy think this is going to work?
i got the basics.
seer council and guardians the heart of Ulthwè, wraitguards with 5+ cover to absorve fire.
vypers to boost around the enemy and the reepers to stand back to confuse and kill to the scorpions gets in close combat.
do you guy think this is going to work?
