Eldar or DaemonHunters?

I wasn't sure whether to put this in here or Army Lists. Move if needed.

I have finished my Dark Angels Army (Still unpainted) and am wondering what army to do now.

It's a choice between Eldar and DaemonHunters.


I used to play them.... Know how to use them
Aspect warriors are good at what they do.
All round awesomeness

Models are a bit expensive
A bit weak (defence wise)
A bit confusing to use


Really really strong
I get them half price cause a former DH player stopped playing them.

High point costs => Low numbers

Which Should I do?

I have a couple of possible Army lists for both. I'll post them up in the army lists section and put links to them here. Maybe tomorrow.

Well, I have both of them (eldar and Daemonhunters).
I've had the eldar from their pirates and corsairs only days. They've seen several codex redux and have had a few mods over the years. I used to have a full harlequin army as well (but foolishly gave them away just pre-3rd ed. If I'd known about apoc coming, that would never have happened.). Not an easy army to use - pretty much a glass hammer (I don't play cheese-falcon army. ). Rewards are good, though. models are pretty.

Daemon Hunters. I wanted an army that was SM but not SM, but not CSM either.
I have my inquisitors (radical/orthodox/puritan) with their retinues and about 2000pts of GKs (with about another 1kpts in inducted guard/ISTs).
Expensive army, but the models are nice. Hard to win with (outnumbered even by SM) and a challenge to play, but fun.
Flying circus?

Multiple falcons with harlies? Right?
