My list was Mic Fairs elder build - 2 x guardians, 2 x Void Spinner,2 x Scorpion, Night Spinners, 2 x Falcons(firestorms), 2 x rangers, 2 x Shining spears - 1 x 2 exarch, 1 with exarch+autarch

Kyussinchains ran Red Corsairs with
10 Lesser Daemons
Chosen+Rhinos+Pact
Chosen+Pods+Pact
Terminators+Pact
Retinue+Pact+Rhinos
Retinue+Pact+Rhinos
Retinue+Warlord+Oblit+Pact
Strike Cruiser
2 Thunderhawks
Helltalons
Hellblades

We had 12 pieces of area terrain each about 20-30cm by 10-15cm mixture of hills, woods and ruins.

I set up 2 both sets of rangers in a scout screen protecting most of my deployment zone

Turn 1
Chaos win rolling a 6 and getting +3 daemons
Strike Cruiser deploys - 2 big templates hit Scorpion, VS, 2 falcons and 3-4 guardians. Fortunately Kyuss rolls badly and only 1 guardian is killed.
The pod comes down away from the barrage centrally and is pushed out by the rangers ZoC. Deathwind BMs the rangers. Rangers OW the chosen giving a BM.
Chosen summon 3 daemons and, using the reroll to activate, assault the rangers. After 2 rounds of assault the chosen win by 1 (first round was +4 to chaos before roll). All but 1 ranger killed. BM for 2nd VS and NS for supporting

SSpears BTs assaults the Chosen 2/10 hits killing 2 daemons, chosen kill 2 SS. Eldar win assault by 1, 3 Chosen escape.

BTS retinue on blitz goes on OW
Falcons that had a BM from spaceship marshal
Mech Chosen double forward behind hill
VS fails to activate, removes BMs
Empty Thawk battle cannons Falcons (ones which haven't activated) killing a Falcon
Falcons marshal removing BMs
Full thawk does the same but misses.
VS sustains on on mech retinue - kills 1 rhino
Retinue fails to marshal - 1 BM left
NS fails to activate
Helltalons ground attack falcons staying out of AA range - BM
Guardians march into cover near broken chosen
Hellblades fail to activate
Guardians marshal
Other retinue marches into central position
Scorpion sustains on them killing 2 rhinos
2nd scorpion singles and shoots same retinue killing another rhino
Rangers go back on OW
Other SS march to centre behind cover to threaten 2 mech retinues

Thawks fly off fine, HT off elder board edge

Chosen don't rally, ranger does
All BM formations rally

Turn 2
Avatar deploys near retinue which had rhinos shot away
Chaos roll 6 again and get 2? daemons and go first

Retinue with 1 rhino left summons 4 daemons and assault the Avatar in FF. Avatar does nothing, 1 chaos hit criticals the Avatar giving bM to SS and Guardians
Hellblades GA SSpears that had marched killing 1
Scorpion singles killing 2 rhinos on retinue that hasn't come forward
Helltalons GA forward guardians killing 4 with IC barrage breaking them
Scorpion sustains on broke chosen killing 1 and therefore removing 3
Empty Thawk battlecannons falcons again killing 1 and breaking them
VS sustains on retinue on baseline killing 2 CSM
VS retains and does the same no kills but 4 BM breaking them
Mech Chosen double and kills a SS in BTS formation
Retain and air assault with terminators in FF. 3SS and Autarch killed, no terminators. Chosen up by 7 wiping out BTS
Rangers break from BM supporting them
NS sustains on rhino less retinue in centre (all bunched up after killing avatar) hits rhino 3 CSM, sorcerer, 3 daemons killing rhino and 2 CSM but 1 BM from breaking.
BTS retinue back on OW
SS assault nearly broken retinue, Only 1 daemon killed - +2 to elder but chaos win roll off by 2. SS broken and retinue broken.
Falcons double into centre to threaten aircraft when they leave, Shoots THawk on ground killing it with proximity to elder when broken
Ranger screen marches forward

HB fly off, HT get BM, Thawk gets BM

Chosen and retinue fail to rally, other retinue rallies.
Falcons, SS rally, guardians and ranger don't

Turn 3
Eldar win initiative.
NS sustain on terminators - no kills but 2 hits breaking them
Scorpion sustains on Chosen0 2 rhino, 1 csm killed
VS sustains on same breaking them
Hellblades GA SS just a BM
VS sustains on rallied retinue - BM
Retinue summons daemons and moves onto objective
Guardians move on to objective
BTS retinue goes on OW on blitz
Scorpion singles and kills broken chosen
Thawk assault Scorpion and is killed
Falcons move onto objective and kill broken terminator (1)

Terminators fail to rally

2-1 to elder- they shall not pass, hold the line vs Break the spirit

Simon felt, and I'd agree, that he had me on the back foot with lots of BMs in turn 1 but lost the initiative by not moving his mech formations us aggressively enough to keep the pressure on. As a result I could sort out the BMs and clear out my zone with too much chaos stuff not heavily involved

I've got a fair few pics of this game, will try to upload later, if I had won strategy on T3 I probably would have broken/destroyed two of the eldar formations which would have made it more difficult for steve to get TSNP and I could possibly have threatened his blitz.. Really fun game! :)

Also finding the red corsairs retinues lack a great deal of punch with only having minor daemons to summon... I definitely should have gotten further forward earlier...

yeah thought those BMs from turn 1 were going to be more significant than they were

Targeting just in from the blitz is the obvious target for spacecraft surely? Then you only target the first template and then get to place the second one touching it wherever you like when you use it and see the actual models, so you can then hit more, depending what you fancy and is around.

Thanks for the report guys!

Steve 54's spaceships are infamously accurate. I personally suspect he jedi mind tricks us all into allowing him to plot them after we've deployed!

Spaceships are a bit of a nightmare for eldar. Either you go behind cover and get nailed by the barrage, or you go in the open and get nailed by the rest of the army. Or even worse you go double bluff, deploy away from cover and get nailed by the barrage anyway :)
