grab the codex and codex craftworld eldar and look towards putting together a 500 point list.

read this:

A Guide to the Eldar (Weapons/Units)

this:

The Five Main Craftworlds

and this:

Eldar Aspect Warrior Tactica

if you have any further questions about the usefulness of a specific unit/weapon post them here, or look through the 13 or so pages and see if there's an answer for you already ^^

it's usual to find a post like this every couple of pages i think, here's one which was posted close to when i first joined the forums:

How to Start an Eldar Army

i suggest reading that too ^^

any further questions and we'll be happy to help

Phoenix lord? I wouldn't suggest a phoenix lord just now cos you can't use special characters (well, u shouldn't) in normal games. Farseer or Avatar is a lot better.

Which phoenix lord is he getting?

Anyway Sin gave you some great stickied topics to look at - proving that when you want to ask a fairly commonly asked question it's always a great idea to look at the stickied topics at the top of the board first... :P

Anyway I wish your friend the best of luck with Eldar.

The battleforce is good for a normal vanilla army. From there he could stick with vanilla or specialise in any craftworld he wants (except perhaps Iyanden.)

Again we really need to know the name of the Phoenix Lord.

not much of a problem i don't think. i notice that most lists don't include special characters of any kind (with possible exception of the avatar) if in doubt the lord could double as an exarch ^^
