The Eladrim and their minions come in several different colours, but wouldn't it always be advantageous to take them in all the same colour in my army so their magic combines together better?
Sorry if this is really dumb and their is some advanced tactic I am missing, but that was my initial reaction.

If you are adding just a few of them or don't have a big collection or aren't going to be using them for magic, then the color doesn't matter.

If you were planning on using them for basic magic then I would want them all the same of whatever color of basic magic I was planning to spend. Example. I play Lava Elves, but want the ability to cast Wind Walk (a blue spell). One of the ways I could have access to blue magic is by adding Blue Acolytes. If I wanted them to share a color with the Lava Elves for a basic spell, I would probably add Black to be able to cast a few more Fingers of Death.

If you are planning on using their racial spells, then the color you bring affects the color you can cast and thus the color of dragonkin you affect. In this case you may want to bring different colors.

Dragonkin and Eldarim are linked.

I like to build an army with the same health dragonkin and Eldarim,
matched if possible.

In order to promote kin via Eldarim magic,
you need to target the kin of the same color magic casted,
you can promote to a different color kin,
but you must target the same color as magic spent.

Since a 36 health army has 12 points of kin,
I like to build using 12 health of Eldarim matched to kin in color,
or lets say you use less Eldarim...
like a dragon slayer...
you would want a champion kin...and then a rare uncommon and common kin

get them into play so they can promote...
even if its through killing a dragon.

END
