Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi, I like the sound of an Eldar army and it might be a refreshing change of unleashing swarms of gaunts onto enemy lines which is getting quite boring.
If I do start out what should my first 3 units be?
PS. I already have the army book and rule book.
If we are assuming that is 3 squads + an HQ, I think Id start with a squad of guardians with a platform, a squad of Dire Avengers and a Wraithlord. that will give you a good feel of the Eldar, and the models all look really good.
A Farseer and 2 squads of Dire Avengers I suppose then! You'd be quite welcome to swap one for some guardians with a weapons platform or a squad of rangers if you prefer though!
2 10 man dure avanger squads and a farseer would give you around 500 points which is a decent size to build around
Sounds like a fairly reasonable general purpose small army
I'll echo what everyone's said, 2 squads of dire avengers and a farseer are the makings of a great 500pt list.
