recon beacon + bombers are working good for me
focus fire is a lot more important, you will probably lose a few ships as well but eldar are heavily reliant on their biggest ships witch costs them their entire renown ,often leaving their smaller ships under equipped
focus fire and heavily damage their big hitters in the first round and your secondary fleet should have an easier time unless you invested everything in your BS and it died

i have 2styx 2hellbringermk1 i usually lose both styxes in a cruiser clash in the first round but having 4helbringers+ a lot of escorts easily wipe up anything he has left

Get beacons and put them on auto. If needed, use one to identify, and a second one on auto to attach it to any eldar ship close enough. Kill that ship, rinse and repeat.

4 stealth hellbringers MoS, beacons +2 LS+ carnage + few escorts = dead eldar 95% of the time in clash

if its assasination or data its GG WP you lose. No race can beat eldar in these game modes without some kind of cheeze.

I've been using MoT on my LCs along with beacons, works well against smurfs. Will look into MoS though as I like your thinking.

Triple Slaanesh Slaughter with supercharged shield (to survive the first pulsar wave) and enhanced coils to refill the gauge.

Eldars can t escape that and you ram them to death

If you have enough points, bring some hellbringers with Slaanesh for more 30 secssilencelulzimfasterwhenyoucantdashaway

My build for my LCs
4x hellbringer

MoS (pulsar, bomber deny)
Targeting matrix (for the macros)
Automated fueling
Add. Teleportariums (+1 LS)
Camo (play mind games with eldar)
Masked thruster ( boost around in stealth)


This setup is awsome vs eldar. DPS remains fairly good with bombers and macros combined. You have plenty of fire power.

Also with your 4 stealthbringers there is room for a cruiser of your choice and 2-3 escorts these ships will be used as decoys while your hellbringer squad sneaks around and engages eldar from another angle. Eldar players tend to always freak out if they dont know where the enemy is and thx to camo you can break away after your hit and run attacks and go cloaked. The eldar will never know exactly where you are while in return you give them some beacons .
