Ummm actually i support the fire first turn on a reality (as opposed to balance)
argument. Like the weirdboys didnt just pop into existance - the time
lag between end phase and orders phase is like nil so basically at the start of
the game the WB's have been sitting there with all this power (kind of like
set up is a turn but no one gets to shoot or move properly.....) theyre there
the power's there so we let them use it (and hey if they blow up.... :) )

        Unfortunately the Warlock Titan (even with the BG's not available )
still looks like poor value considering them - the psychic lance (on the rare
 occasions that Ive brought one along) scare the demons into hiding but they
always find ways to dodge behind cover to avoid it. 750pts in one place is
 leaving you weak in other areas - also asks for the odd potshot from
Magnus , the odd vortex, a thunderhawk of marines if you let the screening units
 get too far away - but hey no solution is perfect. Yes there will usually be
a few prism cannons - the vibro cannons are there mainly to drop buildings
effectively - its usually safer than trying to clear out occupied ones in CC...

        The wind host and wave serpents are probably the only fixed feature - it is nice to keep em guessing, but then again a surprise like an army consisting
only of guardians and war walkers is only going to have the effect of making
the opponent laugh (maybe die laughing so there may be a point.... :) )

        Yeah funny that - Ive never had all that many problems with WSs when
playing against eldar - only bad usually of a: Ive stuffed up or b: a few
too many dice rolls go the wrong way. They can be devastating but its usually
avoidable with a few precautions.

                                                thanks for the suggestions
