Even though I just started with Eldar. I find that Biel-Tan offers the most flexibilty in my opinion. You can gear the army for either a CC army or a long distance one.

Although each craftworld is cool in its own way, and that I do not think there is any one definitive best, my particular fancy lies with Ulthwe. It has an excellent combination of good fluff, useful and characteristic special rules, and a nice paint scheme.

Alaitoc has a very interesting army configuration, but no particularly great tales to go with them (its rigid and conservative nature do not make for the most innovative stories).

Iyanden comes with the second-best fluff; the White Dwarf story of the Tyranid assault upon it was pretty good. And its wraithguard armies are cool and powerful...but are too expensive (in price and in points) for my tastes.

Biel-Tan's army is very attractive, and allow for all sorts of tactical fun. But their fluff gets on my nerves...I don't particularly like warrior-run societies (though, since Eldar warriors are actually pretty sophisticated, that is not too big a problem).

And for Saim-Hann...well, I have realized again as I right this that all of this really depends upon the person. So, I'll stop pontificating my opinion like it was fact.

Alaitoc gets my vote. No particular reason, except I like the paint scheme, and I like Rangers.

I don't play it, though one day, I might.

Second place is Ulthwe.



PS. everyone stop stealing my avater. >=[ =P

I don't think any Craftworld is 'better' than any of the others. Unless of course you have specific criteria (e.g. "Which Craftworld has the best Guardians" - Ulthwe, or "Which Craftworld has the most skilled Jetbike riders" - Saim Hann).

And I don't think a poll was really necessary, but I'll leave it up for curiosity's sake.
You left out Iyanden btw.

I agree with Rezzy - see my craftworld topic which has been stickied. However Alaitoc gets my vote because that's the army I collect at the moment.
