I'm newish to 40k, but brand new to eldar. I'm thinking of collecting an eldar army but there is a big question in the way. Which Craftworld would I chose? Having read a few threads, I know that I'm gona get every pro and con.
Ok, my breakdown of the craftworlds is as follows.
Biel-tan: Lots of elites, very good if you can co-ordinate, can be fragile.
Altioc: Skirmish/long ranged combat, messes with your opponents plan.
Iyaden: Very tanky, resisilant craftworld, small numbers, good soldiers.
Uthwe: Lots of the basic troopers, which are skilled, and a focus on their psycic capabilities.
Saim-Hann: VERY zippy, manuverable army, with lots of jetbikes.
I'll expand just a little bit furthur.
Biel Tan: Can take aspect warriors as troop choices.
Very elite customizable army.
No need to get any of the troops that some people consider "bad"
Very Powerful if it works
Ulthwe (strike force):
Seer Council is awesome
Spear of Khaine
Only one Aspect
No big things
Having to start in reserves
Super Duper ranger disruption table
Extra slots on the force org chart for more rangers
Pathfinders kick butt
You can pin everyone so they can't get to assault you
Can be hard to kill tanks
Can be hard to kill hordes
Usually terrible at combat
I'll do the others tomorro or something unless someone else does beforehand.

When u say uthwe can only have one Aspect, do you meen that they can only have one squad of aspect warriors or a bunch of squads of the same aspect?
The strike force is limited to a single unit of aspect warriors, but can take as many units of reapers as the force org chart allows.Originally Posted by Space_Dogy
The UlthwÃ© the Damned Army limits it to one squad of aspect warriors (any type) per guardian squad.

Working with Tenozuma's Style:
Basic Troop can kill anything in one shot
Other Basic Troop is Wraithlord.
Basic Troops are extremely resilient.
Basic Troops are very expensive, limiting other choices.
Tends to be very badly outnumbered.
Tends to be quite slow.
Weaponry tends to be quite short-ranged.
Opponents who see more than one Wraithlord on the table get cranky.
Iyanden still cannot field a single Wraithlord more than anyone else can
Hordes will quickly over-run Iyanden lists.
WHFB: Dwarfs || WH40k: Imperial Fists, Necrons || WM/H: Trollbloods || BFG: Necrons
Craftworlds are good and all, but I would reccomend you didnt just jump on a craftworld before looking at the vinilla Eldar. Overall they are one of the best performing armies in tournements and are very customizable. They allow for alot of options and possibilities while the other craftworlds simply focus on one thing or another. Personally they're my favorite.
