Meh... I much prefer Inquisitor. It's just not the same without the toy soldiers.
Well I rape the shit out of people on DoW 2 as Eldar. I guess I would play as them. If I can play the game without having to know all the ridiculous sci-fi fantasy lore then I will try it in a few years. Or maybe they will come out with something better.
2000 point is equivalent to how many figure things.
Oh man I cant rep you Zero but I do appreciate the info. In a couple of years I'll maybe sort of have the time.
My big question is, why on earth do they not have a digital version of the table top game? Yea I get Dawn of War but thats not the same at all. They had one for Battletech, like over a decade ago but nothing for Warhammer? Silly.

As far as the learning curve goes though, Eldar are pretty hard to get at first, but if you enjoy being a tactician, then they're definitely one of the more in depth armies that really pay off for those who can be bothered really setting up every part of the army, and once you get the hang of them (which doesn't take as long as you may think) then they're very rewarding to play as
Unfortunately, however, they dont have the strength or toughness of, say, a Space Marines army.
