:D Is it possible for Harlequins to inhabit a wraithlord?

They use to have one a model anyway im pretty sure i saw it when i was a kid, and i suppose it could occur but the souls of the Harlequins belong to the Laughing God and as such they dont use spirit stones anymore. They just get remade or brought back to life or some such thing, but it wouldnt be beyond the Laughing god to put them into a Wraithlord construct after all he is a god

But in general, no, as there's no Spirit Stone to put into the Wraithlord.

eyescrossed shoots and scores.

Harlequins have no Spirit Stones (and when they die, no Waystones. Spirit Stones are the not-full versions, Waystones the full) so there's nothing to put in a wraith-construct. They have a different ritual, whereby their soul is bound to Cergorach upon death.

Except the Solitaire...

Who or what is Cergorach?

Ive been an Eldar player all my Warhammer-related life long but I hear that name for the first time.
Is it the Laughing God's first name? (I don't think I've ever read any any publication in which that buddy was called by a name other than the Laughing God)

*Nods* Thanks, mr. Engel.

I think he means Cegorach, which is the first name of the Laughing God.

They did use to have one (back when they were dreadnoughts)

The RT harlequin list also let them have any kind of vehicle they wanted (even Imperial ones) but there was a chance of it breaking down.

If you want to paint a WL up in a harlequin style then I think you should, it would look cool.

the 3rd ed harlequin list included a harly wraithlord. basically the old metal wraithlord with the harlequin jetbike canopy on the head. the rules were nasty, basically a wraithlord with holofields, crazymasks™ and the option to take a d-cannon.

people complained fluff-wise it wasn't possible. …so?

Tarnish the thought just need to put on Harlequin colored glasses. It is a Harlequinlord which is like a Wraithlord but better in everyway conceivable way. Instead of Dreadnought Close Combat Weapons it has Harlequin Close Combat Weapons with built in Harlequin Cannons, which are like Assault Cannons but Heavy 5. It also comes equipped with a Harlequin hide pelt which gives it a 4+ cover save in the open as well.

They used to be able to have them back in Rogue Trader days as they would be piloted like any vehicle. Them they got changed to contructs contolled by spirits taken from the IF. As such Harlequins won't have a means to have them unless allied as they don't use the Spirit Stones.

Someone's fan explaination for the Wraithlords without spirit stones was that they were Marionettes, and the Laughing God was said to control them and make them dance.

I thought it was cool... >_>

Longer than The Laughing God has had a name. :) It's been a while since I read the Harlequin rules in the Warhammer 40,000 Compendium, but I think "Cegorach" is a 3rd ed creation.

Sorry bloke, just checked the Compendium list. Cegorach is mentioned at the start of the 3rd paragraph. He's been there since RT

I'm such a sad git

Yes they used to have Wraithlords, but once long ago they had Land Raiders too!

Back in 2nd ed i used to have one :)

I got the rules from an issue of citadel journel and remember it used to come with a psychic lance weapon that got more stronger with more psykers on the board...seer council :D

Even if background makes it difficult, they had official models for it and are a popular theme for modellers since then:

There have been several nice flute playing Harlequin Wraithlords on Golden Demon competitions, but I can't find the pics at the moment.

Just as well the Harlequin list didn't have a Seer Council, and there was no provision for allies in 3rd edition. :)

And this was the source for my breaking dancing (hand stand-plant) Wraithlord model ...:-)

Oh my - that is cool! i've got to figure out how the artist did that...

I thought there was a bit of arcane fluff that said that the Harlequins use a wraithlord-like construct to help defend the Black Library. It was suspected that this was what Cegorach did with those few Solitaire souls he managed to save from Slaanesh.
