Default A new eldar player, that needs help!

I am going to start eldar, but I do not know what army to get! I want the 'Ghost Army' but I want more units then Wraithguards and
Wraithlords, so I need help!

You could always go with Ulthwe and take wraithguard and lords. But for the ghost army just take things like dark reapers and seers if you can. Sory I dont know a whole lot about the different craftworlds. But seriusly Ulthwe is a cool army with good stuff and ya could still field allot of wraiths if ya wanted.

well in that case a beil tan army might be the way to go... all of the aspect warriors become troops choices so you could use fire dragons, swooping hawks, warp spiders as troops and some guard as elites and some lords as heavy support, fairly simple really.

I agree, after looking at what you want to use I think that Biel-Tan is the army for you. However make sure you have the craftworld Eldar book (if you haven't got it already) so that you know the exact rules for how to play them

So yet another seer turns from the path of Ulthwe?
My suggestion, wait until you buy the craftwordl codex and have read through it completely until you make your decision as to which craftworld you like.
Simply choosing your army based on units you like can work, but read through the background for each of the craftworlds first.

With that range f troops, it is possible to take a generic army, 3 squads of defenders, say with starcannons, and then fit all those tings you wanted into the elites, fast attack, and heavy support sections.

HQ

Elites:
Warp Spiders
Fire Dragons
Wraithguard

Troops

Heavy support
Wraithlord.

There are several threads going on about how powerful the wraithlord is and how playing with more than 2 severely unbalances the game. This is entirely up to you, but my view on this is one is fine, two is pushing it, and the only way anyone should have a decent excuse to play with three is because they are playing Iyanden.
