Welcome to Librarium Online!
Alright, so i've recently decided to get a new army, that way i'll have the chance to play something other than necrons.
so i've looked into the armies (except necrons of course) and have decided that i will be getting either dark eldar or eldar due to the completely different playstyle from the cron
now here lies the problem .... i dont know which to choose since both look really cool and interesting.
so im asking you what would my advantages be if i picked eldar? (and im not just talking about better models or units or w/e, im talking about everything fluff, tactics, etc...)
The advantages you have with Eldar... let's see... choices and lots of them! You have a bunch of different unit types, 5 or 6 that fit into troops alone I believe and then you have a bunch of elite, fast and heavy choices. Choosing Eldar is only the first step with this army, then you have to pick what kind of eldar you want to play.
Examples: (please excuse the names I don't remember how to spell them all)
Biel-tan- aspect heavy (our specialists, gota have the right tool for the job at hand), usually with a lot of transports
Alaitoc- characterized by infiltration theme such as rangers and pathfinders
Ianden-has more wraithlords and wraithguard but a few aspect warriors, most likely Dire Avengers
Ulthwe- Farseers and warlocks by the bucket. not many aspect warriors but backed up by extremely heavy weapons and full of guardians
Siam-Haan- just don't bring anything that touches the ground, think jetbikes and skimmers
Those are only a few of the big examples of the many combinations we can make. I've been collecting them slowly over a year and still don't have everything.

Well the nice thing about eldar is that they are a niche army, each and every unit is good at killing 1 type of unit(light infanty,heavy infantry,vehicles,etc.)and In this 1 role they are more or less the best unit in the game at that particular thing. They also have one the most durable transports in the game, and are one of the fastest armies around. Also if you manage to get some of the physic powers going your units can become deceptively durable.
thx alot your input was very helpfull, now all thats left is making a final decision, so again thank you.
