Default Help me please!

Hi I am totallly new to Eldar, I want to collect a Craftworld from the codex, I am choosing between Alaitoc and Ulthwe, I dont know which is better for me, I personally want to do either lots of Rangers or a mecha Storm Guardians army!

Well it seems that you know enough about each of the two Craftworlds already (although if you want to ask anything feel free).
I'd say go with Alaitoc, but that's mainly because I am fed up with using my Ulthwe army! Mechanised Eldar are fun to collect, but extremely expensive, so money is an issue (when is it not with GW :.)

So...

Who will your main opponents be?

A mech-Ulthwe army? Sweet!!! But if you want the ultimate mech army, then I would have to say go with Saim-Hann...cause they're too good to resisit *starts drolling about all the vypers it can field*...hem-hem...anyways...
But in your two choices, go with Alotic, as for any mech army will kill your wallet!

Collect them. They have led me to many a victory. I have a strike force. My best thing is my council or my spear of kaine.

This is the same problem over and over again. People have their own opinions - so half will tell you to collect Ulthwe and the other half will tell you to collect Alaitoc. It all depends on what you want. Choose which ever one suits your game style best and go with it and never regret it. I collect neither of those craftworlds anymore so i would say that Alaitoc could be more useful against Marines than Ulthwe IMO though saying that Ulthwe have amazing psyker powers.

According to the Eldar Craftworld codex the 'primary colour is deep blue with a bright contrasting colour.' The basic colours they've used are blue and yellow with a bit of green thrown in

One of the things to remember about the special Craftworld lists is that you don't have to paint your army in the colours of that Craftworld. The Alaitoc list can be used to represent a Ranger force from Ulthwe, Saim-Hann, Biel-Tan, Iyanden, or a Craftworld that you invent yourself. Same goes for all the other lists - an Alaitoc Ghost Army is entirely legal, as is an Iyanden Swordwind, for example.
