Our local Eldar player always used a separate Warlock to command the spirit
host. While the warlock with the spirit host is safely behind the lines, the
scapegoat warlock would give the dreadies and ghost walkers their orders.
The real warlock would be sitting in a falcon surrounded by buddies. The
spirit host never really got broken.

And the spirit host, espcially the dreadies are far better at long range
support then assaulting anyway? Isn't that more their role?
