Why did you choose eldar over all the other races? What makes them so great. Is it low cheap armor?
Defend your race
Why eldar you ask?
1) They're an army that can dish out an impressive amount of firepower with really good mobility AND they have some really good CC units.
2) The models for the eldar tanks are sweet
3) MIND WAR, FORTUNE, GUIDE and to a lesser extent Conceal
4) Starcannons, up to 42 in an army... And now many other ap3,2,1 weapons do we have?
5) Who doesn't like elves? in space nonetheless!
6) They are not marines.
Dreams give us a vision of a world unlike any we have seen. They present us with a glimpse of a better life; a goal to aspire to, and in the face of insurmountable odds, they provide us with the power to overcome, to live on, and to succeed where we would have otherwise failed.
You forgot to mention Eldar have freakishly, like holy units and, like, awesome tanks that come with free upgrades, the wraithlord and avatar are 2 of the best units in the game, and, they kick unholy but. Did you do one of these for each race? :huh:
I chose them for two big reasons. They are arrogant, and at the time, I actually liked the fire prism (for good reason. I was under the impression that it didn't have to roll to hit, because it was a blast weapon). Later I decided that the prism was aweful but aspect warriors were so awesome it isn't even funny.
What a stupid question. This is like asking "what are the advantages?" Just read some threads and you'll get an idea of the advantages of eldar.
and we only have a few units with low cheap armor. Most are expensive and have mediocre armor, but redeem themselves 200% with their attacks and shooting (depending on the unit).

What a stupid answer..your forum is mostly filled with "help"
Easy now, we dont want any flamewars on this forum.
I chose eldar mainly because of the fluff, I simply love the arrogant ways of the eldar. Also, I like the idea of being able to live forever, and the grace and endless devotion that even the most common eldar sports makes me want to be like them if I could. I also collects DE for the very same reason, and I am considering to get myself some harlies too, and exodites if GW ever writes anything official about them.
Gamewise, I like speed and firepower over 3+ saves, and surgical strikes over brutal templates.. Using tactics and agility to defeat the enemy is just feels better than placing a large template over a unit, roll 15 dices and say "they are dead!".
I just wish that GW would pull themselves together and make the much needed updates.. Playing eldar is becoming less fun for each day without that new codex. Luckily, I have my DE untill then...
Well someone definately believes ther Imperial preachings don't they. :pOriginally Posted by TheWamp
I like the eldar for the speed, being a member of the Saim Hann craftworld and all... :cool:

And its the only army (besides chaos, which I hate...) I havn't played, that kinda had something to do with it lol

god that would be power gaming. but eldar have a really cool sleek and elegant look about them, they have some realy nice looking models like the falcon. Their tanks are incredibly hard to shoot down, and well there is only one reason at the moment not to play eldar and that is because gav thorp wrote the current codex..... " hey i have an idea i'm going to create some rules were im going to give the troop choices really realy realy ****ty weapons and whats this im not going to give the avatar an armor save even though his the icon of a freakin god, " iall that said the eldar still kick ass even aftewr gav got threw the codex :shifty:
