how long does the average eldar live for my bet is 2000 years
With a 5+ armour save and T3....... not long.

Eldar ages seem to be slightly vauge, but it seems to me they live at LEAST 10,000 if not killed. Take Eldrad, he tried to warn the Emperor of Horus and he was still alive to fight in the Armageddon war, 10,000 years or so later.

The real question is how many times are the regular "civilians" forced to take up their Guardian suits of armour throughout their life. Those Craftworlds that could run or avoid everything most of the time could be expected to have longer lifespans.
Very little fluff exists concerning how Eldar deal with living behind enemy lines or in Warp infested territory being forced to fight guerrilla operations (aka Altansar). If any members has any experience converting Eldar munitions manufactoriums and food storages i would love to hear from your opinions.
Without being in some sort of fight or having to fend of the warp, I'd agree with at least 10,000 years...but average life expectancy is probably only a few hundred? Though on the topic of life expectancy and the comment about not much fluff on the Eldar Life expectancy, Does anyone know where I can find ALOT (and I mean ALOT) of fluff about the Eldar, especially their history - the more information, the better.
they can still fight as wraithguard and wraithlords as well can't they? does that count as life? what is life? what is the meaning of life?
What we do not know is how readily accessible are these constructions available to most Eldar. Granted, the books written by CS Goto are non canonical, but in Warrior Coven he mentioned that so much knowledge has been lost by the Eldar concerning the manipulation of Wraithbone Architecture such that high technology (for Eldar standards) has been rare.
Sorry, couldn' help myself lol. Ummm...I don't think that fighting as a Wraithgaurd/Wraithlord counts as them being alive, as if I remember correctly the concept behind those is so an Eldar soldier can continue to fight AFTER DEATH. So I consider them to be a form of undead, which would mean they're not alive which means it would not count towards their life expectancy...
