2000 points of Dark Angels or Eldar (40k)

I'll be playing a big Warhammer game on Saturday, 4000 points per side... this is bigger than we've played before. There are three of us playing; a friend and I are splitting 2000/2000 versus our other friend at 4000. I've drafted up two army lists, one of my Dark Angels space marines, and another using the new Eldar codex (they're kind of like space elves, in a way). I'll likely play the Dark Angels, as I'm familiar with their rules, and the Eldar material isn't as well understood by myself nor my friends.
If you're familiar with the game, comment/critique of the lists is quite welcome!

Those are some awesome looking armies. The first has a little more colour but the second is pretty ominous. I'll have to take a second look at the pictures when I get home but this just makes me want to paint models! Hope you have a good time and crush the other (4000) army!

The Eldar are my wife's army; she hasn't really started painting it yet, it's just sprayed with primer. A couple weeks back we bought her some pots of paint for the colour scheme she was thinking of for them and eventually painted up a model each with her very loose idea. We each had a slightly different interpretation as we moved along:

Mine's on the left, her's on the right.

It'll look less ominous once it's painted Wink
