An USF can be far more potent than the regular Ulthwe Force, though I say potent it's also very hit or miss, but if it hits, it hits hard. Regular Ulthwe might be more fun as you sort of have to play a strike force a single way. But keep note an USF is very light, the basic bolter threatens your heaviest vehicals >_<Don't get the eye of terror codex, it would provide you with a very extreme ulthwe army list, and is highly recommended for those experienced and don't mind losing, and such ^.^.
hmmm DE has it's advantages in speed compared to an USF, but keep note, unless the rules have been updated the Eldar wraithgate is far better than an DE webway portal. Bascially the webway is far more restricting when you deploy it and unlike the Wraithgate it doesn't automatically drop if the person carrying it dies. So if you left too much in reserve they would just not come on the board. Oh plus DE basic weapons are crap compared to EldarNot to say I dont kill with eldar, but once you see 4th edition armies rolling, you see some statistical problems. IMO if you ever want to go gate opening i'd rather play Dark eldar, who do the job much better, and get bs 4 as a standard
o.oYou need the Craftworld Eldar codex.

It's nothing for beginners though.Black Guardian said:whats with bashing the strike force? they are my regular army and ive never lost or had any problems with them. if you only look at the drawbacks, sure they suck but what army doesnt. you play tau til turn three, than you can beat any army out there in combat. its like playing blood angels with a special rule saying *my combat boys cant be shot at until i say so* maybe you just never saw a good list for them?
