Default Help with Eldar

Hey I'm new to 40K and was wondering what the Eldar specialized in. Can anyone help me? Thanks.

Elda are an Elite army and all units specialise in something different, shining spears for example are tank hunters with theirexarchs bright lance, Howling banshees are heavyinfantry killing CC troops, the only thing eldar do not have specialist troops for is heavy infantry, the Eldar list is fragile and very much like a thin blade, fragile and easy to break but deadlyswift when used right.

The Eldar specialise in specialisation.
There are mulitple variations on the list that are possible, from plain vanilla eldar through to the Craftworlds such as Iyanden and Alaitoc. Each craftworld focusses on something different, read throught the stickied topics to find out more about this.

You could have a Shooty army or a CC, or a fast one, or any combo you want..
(Ulthwe is the best craftworld IMO)

They also have alot of different models. So you can effectively create many very different lists.

Hey Wraithmaster what part of IN MY OPINION dont you understand? also do you mean flame war?
In Ulthwe you get a Seer Council for 90pts (cheaper than other Craftworlds), the Black Guard (upgraded Guardians), and a cool colour scheme,those are the reasons I like them
i wasnt saying that everyone should like them, but that i realy do

Yes Wraithmaster while It's good of you to try to keep the peace WaaMasta was making a perfectly acceptable point and he's entitled to his opinion. I'm the Eldar Moderator so if you think anyone might start a flame war (for example) then tell me about it and I'll deal with it. Ok? 8)
-Rant Over-

I happen to prefer Ulthwe over most of the other Craftworlds too, although I prefer Alaitocs colour scheme, and I love thier Pathfinders (far superiour to the Tau's Pathfinders ;D).

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

Really!? I'd never have guessed.

I like the look of Saim Hann armies. They look really cool when you see super-heavies in amongst all the smaller craft.
