Well it's pretty hard to give advice when we don't know anything about you as an eldar player.

For example:
1) Do you own the codex yes or no? If not, go and buy one first and read it.
2) What model, unit do you own?
3) What kind of list were planning? (rough idea will suffice)
4) General of specific tactica that you are looking for?
5) what are you specific questions?

If you want help you need to give us more info on what are your needs/questions.

Oh and as a side note, proper spelling, capitalization and punctuation are mandatory here. A little friendly advice to make sure you do not get into trouble.

Battleforce is a good place to start, it will allow you to build a small core for your army...however there is no HQ so this is something you will have to look into.

Now a Guardian and skimmer heavy list is a 2 edge sword. Guardian can be quite effeciant with thier heavy weapon plateform and the sheer amount of fire power then can put into the enemy, but their range and armour save is not so great so they will die easily. Wave serpent can help mitigate this factor. Storm guardian are not bad in cc, but they aren't the best either so don't rely to much on them.

Skimmer. Vyper and jetbike can be good, but you need to keep them mobile or use cover to insure greater survivability. Eldar tanks have some of the niftiest upgrade that will make sure they will survive longer, but the smaller skimmer not so much.

My Saim Hann sense is tingling!

What do you want to know?

The first thing I'd say though is if you're a new player to the game, I'd not recommend Eldar. If you still like them because they're cool, then that's great (and I mean that), but be prepared to lose a few.

you got remember any mistake you make with eldar regardless of how small it could be can cost you a game. as far as what you want to play a saim-hann army style sounds like what you want to play.my best advise for playing one of these armies is the meta game or a game within the game itself. To give you an Idea of what i'm talking about is how boxing works. you just dont go out swing for the fences right of the bat, but instead you want to size you opponent out with a jab. A jab has several uses in boxing for it can help set up a nasty combo, but it explots your opponents strenghts and weakness. It also shows your striking distance and how close you need to be set up you combos. Jabs also after they land even though they might not be knock out punches and may not seem to do very little damage, but after being hit by them several times makes your opponent react to every little movement you do. If i fake with a right jab after I caught you with it several times your going to but your left up expecting it to be thrown when instead i will throw a left cross. In other words i'm going to force you into making a mistake making you think your protected when instead you did exactly what i wanted you to do and I'm gonna make you pay for it. Hope that helps you out some.

Narcissus, can you clean up your posts please? Over 250 posts and your grammar is very sporadic, it's not too hard to punctuate and capitalise where appropriate. I'll be watching you closely in my board.

And in response to your answer to my post from before I had authority here, that's grand. If you can establish a decent set of tactics, there's no reason for you to be handicapping yourself with Eldar.

Just a side note, Monkeigh is an Eldar word that is derogatory to humans. I don't believe many Eldar players refer to themselves as Monkeigh.

Sorry to derail the topic...
