    I suggest:

    A. Do a serch. there a million of these threads.
    B. Buy some guardians, several squads of aspects and a farseer. play some games see what you like, and what units you like. form this pick a craftworld, or if u dont like any of them do vanilla.

    The Craftworlds depend entirly on your style of play.

    Vanilla - (Any Color Scheme) Your basic Codex: Eldar. Don&#39;t be afraid to use this list, not everyone has to play a Craft World.

    Biel-Tan - (Green, White) Aspect Warrior Heavy Army. This army will take many aspect warriors, and few to no guardians. While your surgical strikes will be brutal, the lack of a Guardian Backbone means you must play carefully.

    Alaitoc - (Blue, Yellow) Ranger Craftworld. This army fields a few rangers, and typically has the tendancy to be shooty. A few army, with an amazing focus on the Eldar Snipers.

    Iyanden - (Yellow, Blue) The Ghost Craftworld. This army hosts many Wraithguard and Wraithlord, easily making a strong durable force. While they&#39;re will me much fewer models on the table (due to high points cost of Wraiths&#39 You will have a very sturdy force.

    Saim-Hann - (Red, White) The Jetbike craftworld. Saim-hann&#39;s host features almost everything as mounted on Jetbikes, and extremely fast army, however, with the current base price of Jetbikes, this army tends to lack quite the punch that other Craftworlds have. They are however still a formidable army, the just require more precision.

    Ulthwé - (Black, Yellow/Bone) The Psyker Craftworld. This craftworld is known for its enormous amounts of psykers, and well trained Guardians. They make good use of Guardians and they&#39;re Seer Council. This army can be played well as Shooty or CC.

    So there you have it... a basic run down. Any army list is workable, it boils down to which army would you enjoy playing the most.

    Very informative J2agnarok, I would like to point out, no matter what Eldar army you play, expect to match the army you play.

    ie. your playing against nids, your army needs certain units, and since eldar are super specialized, it can be kinda long and pricy to buy all those units.

    I would suggest, Biel Tan, easy, Fast, and theyre paint job is super kool looking.

    I would suggest playing a few games before you decide, as a couple of my friends have gone through 2+ craftworld changes, goodthing he didnt paint his models&#33;

    have fun

    Personally I like Biel-Tan and Ulthwe, they are the best in my opinion. Biel-Tan is good for a beginner since its mostly aspect warriors you can play with less models. Although against Tyranids I would say Ulthwe is better. Even guardians cheap weapons can kill the bulk of a Tyranid swarm due to thier crappy saves. Then back up your guardians with heavy support choices to fire at longer range and help kill larger targets.

    Beil-Tan is kind of expensive, especially the Wave Serpents that the list requires. Also, it&#39;s colour scheme isn&#39;t really &#39;obvious&#39; (if you know what I mean.) because all the Aspects are different colours.

    To begin with Beil-Tan though, I suggest an Avatar, Banshee&#39;s in a Wave Serpent, Scorpions with an Exarch (Stealth) Fire Dragons in a Falcon, and some Dark Reapers.
