Hi guys, 
Next month its starting at my local shop a mini tournament for beginners and newcomers and I'm participating with my new army of craftworld eldars. It is the first time ever that play with a non-imperial army, and it aslo th first time in a tournament enviroment and in 8th edition, so I'm looking for some critics, advice and comments on my list.

1100 Eldar, Battalion detatchment
 
HQ. (135)
Farseer: 
-shuriken pistol, witchblade, with Doom and Guide
 
Warlock:

TROOPS. (252)
12x Guardian Defenders
12x Guardian Defenders
5x Rangers
 
TRASNPORTS. (278)

Wave Serpent:

ELITES. (225)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
I'm not sure about the Craftworld Atribute, i'm between Alaitoc and Iyanden.
Serpents can carry both guardian squads and keep them safe but they can also carry one of the squads and the wraithguard one. Other possibility is to keep the wraithguard in the webway and deploy them in the second or third turn near the warlock with quicken and a objetive marker.
 
I also have a Wraithlord with 2 shuriken cannons and a ghostglaive, a warwalker with magnetized weapons and I'm thinking on buying a fire prism.
 
Thank you all.

Ok so I have a few questions. First is the mini-tourney points cap 1100? Second, what jobs do your units have? Do you know what you will be facing at the shop?

Hi, Thanks for your reply.
 
 
 
I know the point cap is a little odd, but those are the tournament rules. I think its because some of the actual new players only have half of the Dark Imprium box and a couple of other units.
 
 
 
We wont know wich armies will be facing until the first round of the tournament, so the llist has to be polivalent. 
 
 
 
My plan is to keep one unit of guardians in the webway, the other one in a serpent maybe with the farseer. The second serpent carries the warlock and wraithguard unit. The rangers are a tax to open the battalion detachment, and the Hemlock is because i have one and i like it a lot :)
 
 
 
Well, sorry if my english is not clear enough, i can read and understand it bettar than I speak/write.

Looks like a pretty solid list. I would definitely put the Wraithguard in a Wave Serpent. You don't want them in the Webway since they have 8" range guns but the stratagem means you must deploy >9" away from the enemy. Casting quicken on a 7+ without rerolls is too risky for me.

I would keep it simple and take the Ulthwe trait since a 6+ extra save works against everything. I normally play Alaitoc but recent codices like Blood Angels and Tyrannids means you are more likely to face enemies who get close quickly where the -1 to Hit does not apply.
Sanguinius stood up, stretching his wings to their full extent. He flexed his hands. "I need no blade".
It was as though Sanguinius gleamed with pale light, his face white, eyes becoming blood-red, surrounded by the golden crown of flowing hair. Guilliman had witnessed glimpses of of his brother's wrath before, but had never seen the true Blood Angel unleashed. Sanguinius surged forward on alabaster wings, half a meter from the floor, whiteness streaming from him like flames.
