That's a very nice review! Thank you very much! Unfortunately I don't own so many wraithguards. Right now I am waiting for the Wraithknight to complete my list and I think that I will have him until the end of the week. Everything else is already in line as you can see!

I cannot tell you anything about the hawks because I don't own any and I don't use them.

My advice (as you can imagine) is to keep your shining spears as saim hann and give the autarch the novalance. As I can see you play him with the index rules so give him the banshee mask to ignore overwatch and give him a fusion gun and the MARK OF THE INCOMPARABLE HUNTER trait. With the novalance and the fusion gun he is going to be the ultimate character assassin.

There are some attributes that I like and some that I don't. Every opinion is subjective, even my own of course. I agree with you about the biel-tan attributes but not about the Saim-Hann. When you have a close combat army with the movement of an eldar army or more specific that of shining spears it is obvious that you have to get close to the enemy so you can't use the alaitoc attribute. Before the new codex I was playing mostly harlequins. The Skyweavers and the starweavers have the same attribute and it was not THAT good. It is good but not game-changing or anything. In addition, before the ynnari nerf, that nearly everyone was playing ynnari, the 6+ fnp that the Yncarne could give to nearby units was something really game-changing sometimes, so why not Ulthwe?

I agree that the alaitoc attribute is very useful for units like dark reapers and fire prisms that they can stay at the backfield and they have the range to exploit it but for the other units it is not the best attribute.

So I want your advice. At the list with the wraithlords, the walkers and the wraithknight a few posts below which is the best craftworld for the wraithknight? the -1 to hit rolls? the 6+ fnp? or the iyanden attribute? I cannot decide and my question is sincere, I don't want to become ironic or anything.

4
I think that we can use other attributes too and not only the almighty - 1 to hit rolls....  If you have an eldar opponent with a list full of dark reapers as the lists you propose then you would have no attribute at all.

5
Yes they can shoot both their weapons,  that's why they have good shooting.  The only noote I have to make is that I believe that the autarch has to be the warlord to give back command points and yes you should give him the lance relic

6
To begin with, the bad thing about scorpions is that the whole unit is a shield for the exarch to survive and deliver his attacks. I love scorpions and tried to use them in 7th edition and now but I couldn't make the charge and the opponent killed them before they could move. Only karandras managed to charge and he is a beast but when he is alone and without invu, he is dead.
I tried many times the deepstrike/charge combo and until now it was not successful for me. That's why I prefer shining spear. they have invu, they can reach the opponent, they can charge flyers and they have a decent shooting. So I can't give you any advice on scorpions because I did not manage to use them correctly. Even if they manage to charge only exarch or karandras can deliver a decent amount of damage that can threaten the enemy.

7
You should try some shining spears if you want some close combat units? good movement, good shooting, good melee attacks

what do you think of this version of the list?
should I change the warlock with a farseer or change the guardian unit?
what craftworld fits to the wraithknight?

I can see your point. I will share with you my main idea so you can help me.

I have a wraithknight. I know that in this edition he is not the biggest badass of all but it's my first wraithknight and I want to field him.
The level at the local shop is not extremely competitive but neither simply casual.

So I want to field the wraithknight and I need to keep the opponent's attention elsewhere so my thought was to deepstrike units around him to confuse him.
The next step was to field an iyanden list and I have 10 wraithguards/blades, 1 wraithlord/seer, 2 spiritseers, 1 bonesinger, 2 hemlocks/crimson hunters, the wraithknight and many other units, but these are the iyanden specific models.
jetbikes
shining spears
guardians
avengers
warp spiders
wave serpents
fire prisms
vypers
farseers
scorpions
a unit of reapers
avatar
all the ynnari and a big army of harlequins are the other units for your info.

so how could I form my list to field a wraithknight?

I see what you say. I have to be careful. My main idea was to terrify the opponent with this big shoots consuming unit to keep my wraithknight alive. I played a game the other day against a necron player. Charging with one big unit was enough for him because he destroyed all my screening units in one round. I'll test it and I will report back to you! Thanks mcphro.

so the list I want to try because I bought recently a wraithknight...

Asurmen
3x 5 dire avengers with diresword exarch
( the backup units for objectives)

webway striking 1 unit of 10 wraithblades with axes
spiritseer with psytronome and quicken power. ( they deepstrike, move 5', charge and with the psytronome, the GUIDED WRAITHSIGHT and the SUPREME DISDAIN stratagems they have 60 attacks str7 ap -3 dmg d3 with reroll all failed hit rolls and extra attack at to hit rolls of 6)
(the unit that will keep the opponent busy enough for the wraithknight to survive and kill at its first turn a lot of bad, enemy units)

wraithlord with sword and flamers
bonesinger
wraithnight with 2 heavy wraithcannons and 2 starcannons

hemlock wraithfighter with horrify
crimson hunter

what do you think? is the wraithblades combo in the game as strong as it looks on the paper?

Plus,  I am thinking of droping the bonesinger and field a second hemlock instead of the crimson hunter and maybe a warlock or something but I am not sure....

He is my Warlord, my Great Harlequin but in some cases I use him as the now-exiled eldrad that is hiding in the harlequin ranks!
