well, after over 5 years of painting nothing but space marines (for 40k) i have finally bitten the bullet and tried something new

but me being me i just cant do anything simple, so here we have the Exodites, always my favourite eldar (come on, they ride dinosaurs!!)

this log was inspired to me as i am currently working on a huge great crusade army and really wanted an army that could face off against them, so i have been doing some fanfiction and the enemy in the book is the exodites (with some allied alien help!)

so here is the beginnings of what will hopefully plan out to be a 20,000 point army.........thats right, 20K!

i hope everyone wishes me luck on this adventure and i will repay in kind by keeping it constantly topped up

thank you!

First up is a Autarch riding on a Dragon, hope you like them

okay update time!!

after a bit of kit bashing and some imaginations i came up with a unit to be my "count as" striking scorpians

if memory serves right, exodites dont have the aspect temples, but to be honest, an eldar army without aspect worries, isnt really worth being an army at all

so with some imaginations i thought that, as they are living on a dangerous and hostile planet ruled by dinosaurs, they are also living off the land, they would need to have some form of "hunters" amongst them, who are skilled at stalking through the wild and fighting off dangers

so here we have it, my Exodite Hunting Team

here is a little test job i did, sorry about the images, bad lighting ment i had to use flash just to see the model lol

let me know what you think of the model and the idea, thank you!

Always a fan of exodite logs. I like the colours you're using- block colours suggesting they are Eldar but earthy tones reflecting the them. The paint job on the dino is great. I like the concept for hunters as scorpions. Fits well.

I love the hunter! It captures all the things I thought the originals were missing - some earthy colors and a bit more 'edge' from Dark Eldar parts, versus the rather High-Elfy looking originals. I think even just switching the blue in your scheme with the olive green would go a huge way towards making the models look more like Exodites living off the land instead of High Elves or Craftworld Eldar.

Great work so far though, really hope you keep it up. Exodite logs often fizzle out, but it would be great to see you finish an army!

Nice, the Hunters look great and really work as a Striking Scorpion stand-in. Have you got any ideas for any other aspect warriors?

cheers Master_of_Asgard

and i do for that matter haha

shining spears - dragon knights (cold one riders)
Howling banshees - amazonian style female fighters
Fire Dragons - Ritual fire breathers
Swooping hawks - Well, they will be a seperate coexsistion xenos race with the eldar known as the "dragonkin"
Warp Spiders - not having them, was too hard to think of a count as for them and im not a fan of them to begin with
Dire Avengers - veteran exodites


hope these sound good, if anyone has got any ideas too then feel free to share
