    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.

    Pros:
    Very elite customizable army.
    No need to get any of the troops that some people consider "bad"
    Very Powerful if it works

    Cons:
    Very fragile
    Low Numbers

    Ulthwe (strike force):

    Pros:
    Seer Council is awesome
    Better Guardians
    Better Vechiles
    Spear of Khaine

    Cons:
    Only one Aspect
    No big things
    Having to start in reserves
    Tactical Withdraw

    Alaitoc:

    Pros:
    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

    Cons:
    Can be hard to kill tanks
    Can be hard to kill hordes
    VERY fragile
    Usually terrible at combat
    Low numbers

    I'll do the others tomorro or something unless someone else does beforehand.

    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.

    The Ulthwé the Damned Army limits it to one squad of aspect warriors (any type) per guardian squad.


    Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.

    Working with Tenozuma's Style:

    Iyanden:

    Pros:
    Basic Troop can kill anything in one shot
    Other Basic Troop is Wraithlord.
    Basic Troops are extremely resilient.

    Cons:
    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.

    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.
