Default Eldar or Chaos space marines?

Hey all,

I used to be necrons and then orks but neither of them fitted my style, or at least orks didnt, necrons just didn't have enough variety for me. But anyway I am starting a new army and am not sure which one to pick, eldar or Chaos SMs. So I figured I would ask here for the up's and downs of each as I do not own a codex for either and want your opinions.

I usually play against Imperial Guard, Tau or Daemonhunters and normal Space Marines.

Army tips for either CSMs or eldar additionally would also be greatly appreciated

eldar are specialized, wheras i would think of chaos marines as being more assault oriented versions of normal marines. eldar are also probably more difficult to play with as they require you to co-ordinate all of your units together for maximum effectiveness. eldar are also a lot more fragile than marines of any sort.

Only play Chaos if you're going to paint them in a truly garish Hot Topic-y pink and black color scheme. If you aren't willing to have that much fun with a Chaos army, don't. The world has enough chowderheads playing "ubar leet" Chaos power lists already.
