Eldar weakness is their Ld.

Shoot their avatar to death, then pin their army.

For tips against Eldars you can start looking here, then here. Those are the two latest topics about fighting Eldar.

Main danger is their (almost) invincible Skimmers, lots ofmissile pods is the way against that.

Make sure you destroy things.... don't spead fire.. concentrate and kill....

Eldar do not hold up under a hail of fire and If an elite force run out of bodies quickly if you kill a unit or 2 a turn.... (including vehicles).

Put the sms back in your force, elar now have much shoot and hide(bikes/spears) or things that will hide and then spring traps (viper WW etc) so a decent ammount of sms will pepper the unwary hidden approach....
I have a 900 pt Tau Jetpack Warmachine....

As Soji said, make sure you have a ton of Missile Pods, these will help you tremendously in taking out his skimmers. They can take a beating, but massed Str 7 shots hitting 75%+ of the time should do the trick. I would also advise Mech, this will help to cancel out their mobility advantage.

and if you see Dark Reapers, take them down. The Exarch is now able to drop 3 small barrage blasts that are all Ap 3.

Eldar are just scary now.
