What is the coolest model(s) that is Eldar? I don't play Eldar but I am going to just get a box or 2 of aspect warriors for christmas. I like the Rangers a lot (if the name is wrong they are the snipers) and Wraith Guard.

I just like them all :D but if I had to pick one, the coolest eldar model would be the harlequins, I'm biased towards them, their skills, and their fluff lol :D

The newest Dire Avenger models are great to look at and fun to put together. good rules too.

Swooping Hawks and Striking Scorpions

And the Death Jester model has got to be one of the best models I've ever seen

They're not Aspect Warriors, but I can't wait until I paint my warlocks and my farseer. Even the old models still look awesome to my eyes (as long as they don't have antlers.)

For actual Aspect Warriors, my vote is hands down for Swooping Hawks. The only silly parts about the models is the curved face mask - every thing else (the wings, the poses) just screams awesome.

Wraithlord|wraithguard!!!

for aspect warriors - swooping hawks\scorpions

Ive never bought into harlequins... killer clowns from outer space..

Maugan Ra.

I really like the Dire Avengers or the Direct Exclusive Bonesinger the best.

I'd go with the new Pathfinders or War Walkers.

Swooping Hawks. They resemble mechanical angels...

Harlequins models are nice but when you start to paint them the nightmare starts.

1. AVATAR

2. Farseers and Warlocks

3. Striking Scorpion Exarch

Eldar rune armour always look great in my eyes.

Autarch, certain farseers.

Hmmm you're asking me to basically pick between the looks of, corvette, viper, Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Porsche here. If I just -had- to pick one and only one... what would it be. I'd say the Wraithlord probably. He is awesome and full of win, rule and mini wise.

Aspects... Dire Avengers ftw. (Corvette if you're wondering)
Scorpions second. (Viper)
Fire Dragons 3rd (Ferrari.... duh)
Banshees 4th. (Lamborghini)

which one's the Porsche? Why the shining spear of course. Dated looks and all, ya know.

Falcon, hands down. It's the Koenigsegg of the Eldar range ;).

Captain Micha
08-12-2007, 14:34
I was thinking actually it's more of a Saleen. since Saleens can be faster than the Koenigsegg and looks better too.

Either way though it is one sexy beast.

Koenigsegg is more like a Tau Hammerhead look wise hehe

kishvier
08-12-2007, 16:45
Okay, it seems swooping hawks and scorpions are the most popular. Does anyone like the Rangers? I think I'll get rangers, wraithguard and swooping hawks/striking scorpions.

08-12-2007, 16:46
Harlies
Or Dire Avengers
I dont collect eldar, but got some of both of those
Dire Avengers are just BADASS!

Swooping Hawks.

They are like the sole reason I want to collect an Eldar army.

The other is the Farseer holding the Witchblade upright, pointing with a weeny knife. That's awesome too.

I like the falcon and wraithlord.

When you guys say "The Avatar", do you mean this (http://uk.games-workshop.com/eldar/gallery/2/)? Or this (http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/avatar.htm)?

Trickle

If it were a poll, swooping hawks would probably win.

Unfortunately they are not particularly cost affective in the game. The thread earlier this week started by a chap moaning how he bought the coolest model only to find in his opinion it was rubbish in game. No one really argued with this notion.

Harlequins are without a doubt the coolest imho... provided you have the painting skills to do them justice... so just get the Dire Avengers.

Taranis
08-12-2007, 20:14
I prefer the first this.......

kishvier
08-12-2007, 20:43
Okay, then I'll get Dire Avengers, Swooping Hawks, Rangers, and wraithguard if I have any left over cash. I really do not like the harleys. I don't know why but they just aren't to appealing to me.

The Orange
08-12-2007, 21:43
I started Eldar (back in 2nd edition) because the jetbikes and (now named) wrathlord looked so cool. The WL now looks better then ever, and soon the JB will be redone, life is good. The old FW waveserpent deserves mention too IMO.

Orbital
08-12-2007, 21:58
I loved the old Wave Serpent. To be fair, the GW one has grown on me a lot, but the old Forgeworld one with the stabilizer between the wings was pure heaven.

A dead one.

Ok, to be serios, I quite find the Shadowseer model nice.

Orbital

Good point. That one really stands out among the new Harlequin models.

Wraithbored
09-12-2007, 00:51
Shadowseer, Karandras, Maugan Ra, Swooping Hawks, New Wraithlord, Wraithguard, Falcon and the super speedy sleek thing that is the Vyper and the awesome new warwalkers!

Rlyehable
09-12-2007, 00:59

Falcon gets my vote.

From Forgeworld, the Avatar with the spear.

Something about the Avatar I like very much.

Hellebore
09-12-2007, 01:21
All the newer eldar models look beautiful.

The newer FW models (scorpion mkII, Revenant, Phoenix) all look really nice as does the FW avatar.

However, for sheer aesthetic beauty I just can't go past THIS (http://gamesday.us.games-workshop.com/GamesDay2006/Chicago_2006/Coverage/newproducts/images/12.jpg) fire dragon exarch.

The pose, the design, everything just sings to me.

I don't even like Fire Dragons very much (I'm a scorpion guy).

I like Rangers, I only have 15 now need more *smiles* Pretty Rangers

and the Wraithlord, and the new Howling Banshees.

I do love the Rangers, as well as the Fire Dragons. The 3rd Ed. Bashees were great (the new ones not so much).

Triggerdog
09-12-2007, 05:11
I'd say either the new Wraithlord or the Limited Edition Bone Singer

WorLord
09-12-2007, 05:14
Coolest model:

Relatively Cheap - Maugan Ra

"Normal" Budget - Wraithlord

Some Extra Cash - Forgeworld Avatar with Spear

Money to Burn - Armorcast Phantom Titan

Wraithlord, it's one of those models, that makes me want to buy it, even though I don't play eldar:D

silverstu
09-12-2007, 11:28
I love the rangers- when they first appeared they convinced me that the new eldar would be worth collecting again and the whole range lived up to expectations.
My fav models - autarch, wraithlord, dire avengers- the whole range is great though[ i ordered myself a forgeworld avatar for christmas!! Sometimes you've gotta be good to yourself!]

the nightbringer
09-12-2007, 12:37
Oh man I hate questions like this, they just so danm hard to answer. Although i'll say the limted edition ranger they sold when they released 4th ed. eldar. Or Autrach with swooping hawk wings.

I think the Maugan Ra model is one of the coolest GW makes. So cool, I came close to buying Dark Reaper and Ranger models along with it just to have a small force to use it with.

You mean the bonesinger, cuz the ranger isn't Limited, its just direct order exclusive. (picked up one myself at gamesday :p)

PierceC
09-12-2007, 22:17
It would definitely have to be the Bonesinger or the Farseer pointing with Witchblade

Orbital

This guy.

In my head, that is what a Farseer looks like: Weapon at the ready, but the real power comes from within him.

It sure is. I've so wanted to use the model in some army, but I don't play Eldar and even if I did, I doubt I'd have harlequins. My Chaos army could have room for it, but the problem is that they hate the Eldar above all else.

Lash him to a post and make him some kind of possessed psyker?

Nah, wouldn't work. Wouldn't fit with the fluff. There is a Chaos Eldar sorcerer featured in the second novel I'm writing as the fluff for the army, but not to spoil too much, he's not gonna make it that far as to become a part of the team. And as the lord doesn't mingle with deamons, having possessed stuff is out of the question.

Oh well. Best I could to come up with a way that Harlequins could be in a Chaos force without kicking their demonic asses up and down a flagpole. :evilgrin:

(That's right Ahriman, you scared little kitten... I'm lookin' at you)

Anyhow... cool Eldar models... agreed on the Shadowseer. :)

Vehicle - Nightwing Interceptor

Single model - 3rd edition Howling Banshee, with Swooping Hawks a close 2nd

Scorpion II

Nightwing Interceptor

Avatar with Spear

Howling Banshees

Easy to see where my main preferences lie.

Contrary to what other people have said, I really only respect the Harlequins for their abilities, the models just scream cheesy disco dancers. His trousers have those flares, and he looks too much like Maugan Ra, which is a nice model, but when I get those two connected in my head in some way, I see Maugan Ra in a white suit covered in sequins, flaring trousers, doing the "staying alive" dance with and an Afro. The Eldar have already had "The Fall" I thought they could sink no lower... I was mistaken.

But I do like the new rangers (especially the one with no helmet and the hood on), and the Wraithlord isn't too shabby either. Maugan Ra and Asurmen are the only 2 Phoenix Lords I like, but on the whole, the Eldar range are a nice selection of models.

(And if you haven't had a look at the new jetbike, quickly look now)

Irisado
14-12-2007, 19:12
Oh such a difficult choice, but for me, if I had to pick just one, it would have to be the original Eldar Farseer. That pose, where (s)he points one finger straight at the enemy, represents the casting of Doom so perfectly in my view.

Donner Adler
14-12-2007, 20:33
hands down the new Wraith Lord,he just screams im gona eat your face

scratchbuilt
14-12-2007, 20:39
Striking Scorpion - especially the special character

The old Farseer with the bug eyes
Old Harlequins

Elder sort of annoy me- as do elves, but I love the models

Avenger2040
14-12-2007, 21:36
Old Banshee models, they look better than current models IMO.

Dark Seraphs
14-12-2007, 21:43
my favorit has to be:

Forge world stuff:
Revenant titan (Own one)
Avatar (with spear)

GW stuff:
Dire Avangers!
I think guardians look cool aswell.

14-12-2007, 21:48
Maugan Ra, Scorpion Type 2, Revenant Titan... 'nuff said.
