I could totally see it looking wicked, reminds me of how I made my fable 1 character look! I think it would really depend on your 3rd color choice to set it off. Check out these for some inspiration  as curious and looked them up.

I like hemlocks.  They die easily, but the ability to strip fearless is awesome.

Not to mention two blasts with instant kill... He's a psychological weapon.

Aye, terrify is awesome, especially in this edition where everyone seems to be fearless or confers fearless.

As for paint scheme, I notice Tyrael has tinges of blue from anything that glows, so I might opt for white, tinged with blue. His armour, while gold, is also edged with silver so I might dry brush the edges with silver to get the right effect. Short of green stuff, does anyone know where I can make/get hoods for my infantry?

Hoods?  Not sure what you mean.  The only hoods I know of are Dark Angel.

Hoods, sort of like Tyrael's hood. I might convert my dire avengers and farseer to have those.

So circumstances have changed a wee bit and I'm about to obtain 3 hornets.

As such, I feel almost compelled to make sure I use them, so I've had to switch up my list a wee bit. I'd like to know what you guys think of this list

HQ:
Farseer - Eldar Jetbike, Singing Spear, Mantle - 160
Spiritseer - 70

Troop:
Wraithguard - 5 Wraiths - Wraithcannons - 160
-Wave Serpent - TL Scatter Laser, Shuriken Cannon, Holo-fields - 145
- 305

Dire Avengers - 5 Avengers - 65
-Wave Serpent - TL Scatter Laser, Shuriken Cannon, Holo-fields - 145
- 210

Dire Avengers - 5 Avengers - 65
-Wave Serpent - TL Scatter Laser, Shuriken Cannon, Holo-fields - 145
- 210

Fast Attack:
Hemlock - 185
Hemlock - 185
Hornet Squadron - 3 Hornets - 2 Pulse Lasers - 240

Heavy Support:
Nightspinner - Doomweaver, Shuriken Cannon, Holo-field - 140
Nightspinner - Doomweaver, Shuriken Cannon, Holo-field - 140

Total: 1845
Model Count: 27
Scoring Units: 3

I swapped out the fire prism and exchanged one squad of Wraithguard for 3 hornets with dual pulse lasers. This addresses a number of things, particularly my initial lack of anti-tank power, also hornets are sexy like nothing else.

What do you guys think?

I'm not sure what you are trying to do with the list.  Stripping fearless is great, but only if you have a way to exploit it.  5 Dire Avengers aren't really a threat to anyone, just a way to get Wave Serpent for cheap.  A unit of Scorpions/Banshees (I might be only person in 40K universe who still likes them) might give a way to make the unit then flee.  Othewise I'm not sure why you are using the Hemlocks.

You really need to get some Jetlocks on the field so that you can abuse the Horrify psychic power.  Check out the following article for more info: http://40kunorthodoxy.blogspot.com/2013/07/6th-edition-eldar-codex-making-flyers.html

Cheers for the feedback guys.

The first draft of my list relied on a fairly large jetlock council, and while effective, it had it's flaws, particularly the reliance on the warlocks. Thinking about it as well, and seeing the current meta, a council doesn't really attract me. After awhile it gets a bit boring, games devolve into "I'm throwing my council of pwnage at you. GG" I am a massive fan of 40k unorthodoxy btw.

Matt, the exploitation of the hemlocks comes from the sheer firepower, the barrage weapons and tank shocking. Although, the hornets were abit of an impulse buy, I feel compelled to now use them. Although, looking at it, they are incredibly badass.
