Just a quick question: Which of the eldar aspect warriors are metallic aside from dark reapers?

All execpt Dire Avengers.
EDIT Shining spears are mainly plastic...

That is correct, only the Dire Avengers and Guardians plastic in the Eldar infantry range. all other infantry are metal.

Sure, they're nice and heavy, don't fall down so easily, but they're damn hard to convert into something :(

And if you happen to drop them, or simply let them fall over during a battle, all parts break off.

In all fairness, the metal Aspect Warriors are pretty damn sweet, though!

Most of them are, I agree, and they are far superior to the third edition metal Aspect Warriors, but the Rogue Trader models were better in my opinion.

Good place for me to ask a question I think.

I've been thinking of starting Eldar and I was wondering which (if any) aspect warriors are some of GWs bad metals. (With tonnes of flash and deformations.)

So true. Though a couple of extra Spider variants would be nice. What are they, 15 years old?

I can't speak for anyone else, but I have quite a few Aspect Warriors and I have had no such problems with any of them.

I have had no issues whatsoe'er from the metals. I have a lot too. Several sets of each. :)

Ah, that's good to know, thanks guys.

One more question, do any of the boxes come with multiple exarch armaments? Or would you have to convert if you wanted anything but the weapon that comes in the box?

Scorpion box has claw and biting blade choice but others are one hit wonders really. Having said that once you have a decent bit box conversions are relatively easy.

Dire Avengers has loads of versatility but it is plastic, so it would.

edit; ooh, banshees has executioner and mirrorswords.

edit2; ooh ooh dragons has dragon breath flamer and firepike

edit3; ooh ooh ooh reapers has EML and tempest launcher

(sorry have been in pub since 2pm, it is now just before midnight and I got back 15 minutes ago)

edit 4; ooh,ooh,ooh,ooh,curse you, Thud.

edit 5; ooh,ooh,ooh,ooh,ooh,Spears have Sword and Lance

The Fire Dragons box comes with Fire Pike and Dragon's Breath Flamer for the Exarch.

That's great, I didn't expect them to come with weapon options. :D
