Will you be very offended when I tell you that I expected no other army and list than this one, after having seen your Skaven army on this board?

If I played against either of those lists, I wouldn't think "I've drawn the short straw", I'd think, "where's the rest of it?" I have more troops in my 1000 points of eldar that you do in 1500.  Even a small number of troops choices (remember them?) on your opponents side will wipe your infantry off the face of the earth, leaving you with about 10 shots per turn, not enough to win a game.

 I see your reasoning. However with my Iron Warriors I tend to stay at the back of the board and out of range of basic infantry guns.
 However a all infantry army is the hardest for me to face I admit.  
 I take less troops because the lascannon ratio is lower for them, plus they cant move and fire.

 3 lascannons with obliterators=210pts

 3 lascannons with predator(mutated hull)=175pts

 3 lascannons with troops=270pts

 Remember the 40K motto,s:

 Troops dont win games, heavy support and elites do.

 Tactics dont win games, armys do.

An IG list with lots of small guys supported by infantry weapon teams (not Lemans or Basilisks) would own those lists. I've played around with such a list from time to time. What would that Eldar army do against a big mob of conscripts?
The only good thing about 7th ed heads is that they look particularly inbred and superstitious which is perfect for Stirlanders

 Well my eldar are a no-no at the moment anyway. But IW speaking:

 IG are a worry. I havent played a tornament guard player yet but normally beat them in friendly games.

 Remember matches arnt played on open ground, there will more than likely be at least some terrain.

 My main tactic would be to try to dig in and use my small numbers and terrain to sheld me from the majority of there army whale I concentrated on eleminating a part of theres. Anything with a lascannon or ordanance would be target priority. I would advance the demon prince or not depending on the ammount of powerfist officers around. I have the luxury of being abel to move and fire so setting up behind terrain would stop me suffering from first turnitus. If I thought one of my units would lose a firefight it wouldant show itself. It really depends on terrain/mission/what they have in there army.
