View Full Version : if you where an eldar...

08-08-2006, 10:53
if you where an eldar, what would you be? (harlequins, wraiths and dark eldar not allowed)

i would want to be an autratch.

actually, to be honest, i would want to be a bonesinger.

08-08-2006, 13:46
I would love to be a ranger - I'm a solitary person by nature and restrictions of any kind don't sit well with me, however I'm always willing to help those I'm loyal to. Besides I play a DnD ranger, or roleplay a Ranger pretty much always.

08-08-2006, 13:57
I would choose to be a warp spider. A clever choice for survival, good armor protection, and if you get attacked you move away in the blink of an eye. Not to mention the awesome weaponry. But mainly its a question of preferred combat style and preferral of offensive/defensive combat.

08-08-2006, 14:03
I would be in an eldar emo band.

Commander Ozae
08-08-2006, 14:38
An emo band would probably be more Dark Eldar than normal eldar but ok. I would be a farseer, no doubts about it. Awesome psychic power, see the future, manipulate people, lead the eldar to a glorious future. Woot

08-08-2006, 14:49
Can't I be an Avatar?
Oh well, I chose Autarch.
Reaper Launcher and Warp Spider Jump-pack. :evilgrin:

08-08-2006, 15:05
Dark reaper!
Heavy armor, standing back and raining bucketfulls of DOOM on the mon-keigh! :evilgrin:
I can think of worse jobs...;)

08-08-2006, 15:07
who the hell would wanna be an autarch, stuck on a path that only leads only to bloodshed and violence. on second thought who wouldn't wanna be one:)

08-08-2006, 15:35
The invisible Warp Spider or Shining Spear Phoenix Lord. ;)

But then again, I never knew why GW didn't make Phoenix Lords for those Aspects.

08-08-2006, 15:50
Hmm tough choice between warpspider, scorpian or...
Hell they are all fun and have their pros and cons but either one of those two would be my first choice

Blagrot Squigbreff
08-08-2006, 15:55
I'd have to be a Shining Spear, get to go really fast and blow up any traffic in my way:p . Jetbike guardian a second choice.

08-08-2006, 16:00
I would like to be a farseer/warlock being able to see the future (however uncertain on when it's going to occur) would be brill. Though the disiplin might make it annoying.

The craftworld sings to me and I respond in kind. :angel:

08-08-2006, 16:33
I'd be a bone singer or some kind of uber-killy aspect

Inq. Veltane
08-08-2006, 16:43
I'd currently be walking the Path of the Outcast. I want to see the world (universe) and remember how restrictive the Path of the Warrior is. I'm sure I'd walk it at some point (and I'd probably train as an Avenger or as a Hawk) but for now I want to wander the stars...

Commander Ozae
08-08-2006, 17:01
Being a Ranger would be pretty cool because you get to see the world and they're more exotic than an aspect warrior. If i had to be an aspect warrior it would be Warp Spiders, zip in and out and kill everything.

Flame Boy
08-08-2006, 17:01
I'm guessing I'd want to be either a Bonesigner or some other kind of artisan. Being a warrior is great and everything, but I'm rather fond of my limbs. Deciding that you'd really like to be a sculptor moments before a Battlecannon shell turns you into gaudy wraithbone confetti would be somewhat of a letdown.

08-08-2006, 17:07
Farseer. I am a control-freak by nature, and even if I can't control something, I want to know everything about it, just in case.

The idea of melting enemy brains is quite appealing, as well...

08-08-2006, 17:08
WOW! I'm the only person who wants to be a Striking Scorpion. Thats pretty shocking.

Overlord Krycis
08-08-2006, 19:09
I'd rather be in a Falcon...Much safer than all that running around outside, getting turned into chunky salsa.
I could sit and relax while drinking Eldar tea and reading the Daily Craftworld...

08-08-2006, 19:19
Safer!? IN A FALCON?

Those things are like death-traps! Every laser on the field is targeting them.

As a Striking Scorpion exarch you are guaranteed that the enemy will have to mow through an entire squad of heavily armoured ablative dudes before they are allowed to attack you.

That's protection.

No love for the Slicing Orbs, eh? Well, that's what I'd want to be. Those who know I exist have no idea what I am. Those that don't... well... um... yeah. It's a win-win situation.

09-08-2006, 05:34
Dire Avenger Aspect Warrior or Exarch.

No question, no contest.

09-08-2006, 05:34

I love the idea of psychic powers and being in a leadership role.

Though in my case, I'd be less ornamental looking. Think more like a Guardian with a cloak than all that other fancy junk

Pathfinder. Being able to roam the galaxy in your own little ship, visiting lost cousins, sniping off commanders while they are doing a speech. thousands of year of experience and knowledge in one grim, tough warrior that strikes from the dark....Perfect.

09-08-2006, 11:01
Ranger. Wandering the galaxy, getting in all kinds of chenanigans(sp), being my own master, and not listen to the farseers.

09-08-2006, 11:08
ide be a void dragon pirate just so i can learn ya harr harr in eldar

09-08-2006, 11:17
Average Civilian

Because I'm a coward and it's rare for Craftworlds to be boarded. :D Also, how cool would it be to get stuck on the Path of the Writer and become an Exarch Writer?

09-08-2006, 12:02
Definitely a Striking Scorpion Exarch (with the rumored dual chainswords). Because a.) I like chainswords, b.) Scorpions are B.A. and c.) I like green & yellow.
Ranger/pathfinder would be a close second.

09-08-2006, 18:44
Warp Spider, hands down.

09-08-2006, 19:35
*looks at poll*

*sulks at no "Dark Eldar" option*

If it was a Craftworld Eldar? Civilian. That way, I don't have to worry about getting my ass ventilated by bolter fire.

09-08-2006, 20:02
First choice would have been Harlequins.

Of those available; tough call between pirates and rangers, I guess I'd go with the ranger. After a century or two, probably switch over to the path of the seer.

Commander Ozae
09-08-2006, 20:04
Pirates could be a fun option cause you've got a good fleet and you can get rich and you don't have to obey the Path.

09-08-2006, 20:38
to judge by this post, it seemes like most people like outcasts, maybe gw shod make it possible to make an outcast eldar army?

09-08-2006, 20:43
Gee, you mean like...ooh, I don't know..A ranger force?

10-08-2006, 13:34
no, more like a non DE pirate list.

10-08-2006, 13:49
I went with autrarch, I like the idea of being able to fight in any style I want, travelling from craftworld to crafworld fighting for the Eldar race when I answer the call.

Sorta like Batman then...but less depressed, obsessive man dressed as flying rodent...

10-08-2006, 22:31
Swooping Hawk, I can't help but want to fly with the grace of an Eldar, I would have said Autarch with wings, but that felt like a cop out.

11-08-2006, 08:45
I'd be a farseer, one that could whip people into walls with my mind kinda farseer!
Or just watch peoples deaths, 20 years before they happen for entertainment.

11-08-2006, 09:27

And more like an arrogant space elf dressed like a bird.:D

11-08-2006, 10:07
I'd be a Ranger, spreading my emoness to the galaxy. I'd be killing random humans because they're an irritating species, hunting Tau because they stole our place as the galaxy's most technologically advanced species, avoiding Necrons because they're cheesy, and occasionally crying in a corner at the sheer black unfairness of it all.

11-08-2006, 10:25
I'd want to be a Solitaire - but as that isn't allowed, I'd be a Warp Spider Exarch, popping out of nowhere and slicing people into tiny, tiny pieces...

11-08-2006, 14:11
Guardian on a jetbike for the sole reason of zipping about the Craftworld and annoying others. Until they banish me, of course.

11-08-2006, 23:29
Well from my experiece on battlefields (airsoft gun war) I think I would much rather be a ranger instead of being ground into dust, or of course, a pirate :skull:

12-08-2006, 03:05
Farseer for me. Guiding the future of an entire race, seems pretty worthwhile. Plus - get to melt people's brains!

Failing that - a Ranger. Get to shoot Space Marines in the head.

Tanith Ghost
12-08-2006, 08:03
Ranger/Outcast. Why fight the dark eldar yourself when you can call in a tip to the nearest marine chapter, then sit back and watch the 8-foot tall walking tanks kick the crap out of your bitterest foes for you?
And given as how I'd only mildly dislike humans, I'd fund such ventures by selling my skill as a sniper to open minded ordo xenos inquisitors. Praising the mon-keigh emperor too if it helps me avoid inquisition bolts.

12-08-2006, 09:01
I'd be a banshee, coz then I'd have boobs:D

in all seriousness I'd probably be a scorpion, sneaking around and cutting things up with a chainsaw, getting the satisfaction of knowing that your better than your opponent when you beat him, and cutting things up wiht a chainsaw.

12-08-2006, 09:21
Warp Spider all the way. Good firepower, and you can get out of danger quickly too.
Cowards ahoy!

12-08-2006, 13:24
Void dragon phoenix pilot HELL YEAH!

That's seriously THE coolest option in a "What do you want to be" poll ever!

On another note, I think being a musician on some craftworld would kind of rock my soxxors.

12-08-2006, 13:35
...I think being a musician on some craftworld would kind of rock my soxxors.

It's also the single safest option. With the exception of Iyanden, what Craftworld has been invaded? :D

Eldar Civilians - the safest job in the 41st Millenium!

12-08-2006, 13:49

Not invaded, but Altansar did get sucked into the Eye of Terror, and I doubt they're all too happy about it...:p

12-08-2006, 13:50
Pfft, they've been rescued, what are they moaning about? :p

12-08-2006, 13:53
Yeah, but they're apparently undead. Or something. If that's true, your definition of "rescued" is... interesting. ;)

As for the moaning part, a possible if somewhat unlikely answer is "brains". :p

- LoW

12-08-2006, 13:57
If they're undead, then they don't count as civilians. Burn them! :D
