I currently ahve an Alaitoc Craftworld army, and was waundering but the other craftworlds, i read some of their perks, but what is truly the best all-around craftworld to play with on a 5x5 ft table?
-Do not regret what you cannot change
I would say that there is no "best." It depends on your tastes. Iyanden probably isn't the easiest, and I'm personally not a fan of Ulthwe (though USF is lots of fun, even if you're horrible at that craftworld, like me). Seriously, proxy and try them all out yourself. Then, buy models.Originally Posted by Kalypso

It depends on you, and your playing style as well as who you play and other factors in the game.
I suggest reading through some of the other threads, and articles/tacticas to get a better idea, and like The Wamp said proxy units if your opponent lets you to get a better idea.
proxie is your friend if you want to try something out!
The Morbidos Fleet will reclaim the Eldar empire. This time there shall be no mercy. Let them choke in their own blood!
as many have said, there isnt an answer to this, but generally by style/popularity:
Alaitoc you have and works well on larger table, but not a first choice craftworld, although popularity may increase with medusa V and plastic scouts
Iyanden - not easy to play and tends to be better on shorter tables, it is probably less common than Alaitoc
Ulthwe - probably the most popular or joint with Beil Tann, works on most sizes of tables and gives you cheap (money wise) options to use 2 armies (USF)
USF - see above, a little risk on larger tables
Beil Tann - probably joint popularity with Ulthwe, appeals to both ends of the eldar spectrum, - newbs who want elites and the purist who likes to ochistrate his army, can work on most tables but configuration varies wildly so can equally be naff
Saim Hann - works well by its standard on larger tables, but is a backwater army with little longivity against regular opponents
as others have said, try proxying and see what suits your tastes
Everything you have been told is a lie!
This might be a little blasphemous, but you could try a vanilla list. It offers you more flexibility than any of the Craftworld lists. Just a thought.

personnaly if I want flexibilty it is out with the Jane Fonda workout video
but seriously yes that is another option

The key idea of Craftworlds is that they aren't 'all-round' like you said. Each craftworld is speciallised towards one type of combat. If you want a truly all round list then go vanilla (not backing it) if you want a number of guardian squads, backed up by one or two aspect warriors and a few dark reapers with plenty of vehicle support go for Ulthwe.
I agree. Start Vanilla, so you can get a good taste of the differnet styles. Then, you can dive into a Craftworld.
Yea vanilla is the way to go, but just for the record - Ilanden are VERY hard to play with, they are good but their numbers are always low. I play em, on large battlefields with no cover I lose very quickly even with waveserpents. Just keep that in mind, if you want a challenge then feel free...
