Well why don't you just ask the questions you want here. It'd be much easier.
Maybe you're thinking that people who think they know it all will answer and give you wrong advice, but we are all Eldar players, therefore we are all honest, clever gamers (Really! ).
And anyone who gives you crap advice will be quickly shot down with a shuriken catapult.
Anyway, just ask a question and we will help you with it as much as possible. :w00t:
And welcome to LO. The emergency exits are here, here and here. We hope you enjoy your stay. :yes:

More importantly by asking questions in a thread you'll get an aggregate of answers. Any one person may either have some bad ideas or a narrow view of eldar gameplay. Together I think we provide fairly good info.
Default eldar advise, make sure you're army pieces work together and that you can deal with any given threat. Our units don't do it all like a SM tac squad, however they each do what they're good at far better.
i think there are 3 key points for playing eldar:
1. most units are specialized, i.e. they do incredibly well against some sort of enemy, and really bad against others (or they are used as overkill units, which you should avoid)
if bulding an eldar list, be aware of what purpose every single unit's specialization. then think of the top priority of every unit during a game and equipp it in the chosen manner.
this means, don't aim for all-around squads. don't buy equippment that is not neccessary for the unit's role. if you have holes in some part, get another unit which is specialized in it.
2. most eldar units are fragile. this means that even your elite aspect warriors will get eaten by anti-personel fire. however, most units have ways to protect them (guardians+warlock and conceal; warpspiders, hawks, falcons etc.). if possible, avoid wide areas with many enemy fire lines. use mobility to outmanouvre your enemy as well as blocking up LoS (line of sight) by creating close combat situations or using wrecked vehicles.
3. each eldar units supports another and vice versa, e.g. support an scorpian squad with another cc-unit or infantery like guardians and dire avengers. on the other hand, protect a non-cc-unit of being attacked using a cc-unit to countercharge.
well, eldar is not an easy race to win with being a new player, but can also be really awarding when you figure out how play with them. i personaly fancy specialized units alot, as i can be almost sure that they will accomplish the task i chose them for.
