i Currently have a Daemohunters army which is now complete and now i am looking to start a new army and eldar seems to be the way to go..
can anyone give me some advice.
Well do you want lists or general help, if general I would sugguest pinnin this in the eldar tab under armies.
as reesebites stated, this thread may belong in the eldar army section, but your main priority should be to pick up codex eldar and possibly even craftworld eldar, if youve played 40k then you should have a general idea of how to go about it, look to build up around 500pts and you can go anywhere from there

Are you looking for a great modeling/painting experience, or do you just want a shizznit army list?
I'd pick a theme and use a couple of aspect warrior units that fit that theme.
Here's a start:
5 howling banshees and 1 exarch in a Falcon
4 dark reapers and an exarch with missile launcher
Farseer with fortune and mind war, witchblade, shuriken pistol
8 dire avengers
16 guardian defenders and warlock
Wraithlord and/or Wraithguard
This is a darkly-themed army that would probably do well painted in black, bone, and either dark blue or dark purple (actually, kinda sounds like dark eldar...)
It's mostly shooty with a good counter-assault unit and some staying power (which is difficult to achieve with the Eldar). Put the Farseer with the Guardians and use them as a screen. You'd be surprised how much punishment they can take when the unit is 18 strong and rerolling 5+(I) saves. The wraithlord and wraithguard are always hard to kill.
You may consider dropping a jetbike squad and or a vyper in there to lend more speed and firepower. Maybe add a weapon platform to the guardians, too.

Kill the alien scum,
Suffer not the unclean to live,
And have a beer when you're done.
