I haven't thought about the fluff yet, but warlocks of this craftworld, still have to figure out some cool name, are going to be more into closecombat .They are going to get some badass powers like enhance and destructor.I also try to limit the number of vehicles in the army and prefer infantry.

Nice, I like the overall idea and the execution is good too. But I am not sure, wether the WE parts look "high-tech" enough to fit to the Eldar parts...

They look very good, a bit like a craftworld taking a turn into being exodites.

Some ideas, as you have thought of making an infantry-based army:

Heavy weapon platforms - they are very nice, and also obligatory on guardian defenders. It is a crazy idea, but how about buying a couple of cold ones (the lizardmen models, not beer) and converting a weapon on a mount of them? So that the eldar have tamed beasts as their weapon carries? Then the weapon team could be like 1 model using the gun and the other leading / prodding the lizard?

Also, I have seen some nice conversions of wardancers turned into harlequins - new harlies look nice, but if some variety is needed, you can easily convert a few of them?

And, have you thought of taking either wraithlord or warwalkers? Both models could fit well, maybe some bits from Orion the WoodElf could make the wraithlord an even more interesting model, or how about giving him legs of warwalker, making him look a bit like a satyr / centaur -type machine?

edit: this could be achieved maybe by reversing the wraithlord legs, and cutting the feet and turning them around. If you dont do it, I might have to try :)

Just some crazy ideas. I look forward to play against your army!

I'm going to do something to heavy weapons, I don't want weapons that fly around.Lizards could be one idea.

Harlies could be nice counterattack unit. I have to do some rough estimate what units I want to have at 1000p

I'll definitely get some warwalkers not I'm sure about the wraithlord yet, but it's probably too cool model not to buy... :cries:

This could be a nice body for Avatar.
It would need some green stuff and better arms that could hold sword/scythe/spear, any ideas? :(
Wraithlord's sword could be used.

Maybe Orion has some cool bits to use (or even use him as avatar?), and the spear especially rocks big time. I am not sure how it would fit on nightbringer, but after some converting it should be fine.

I'm liking the mixture of Wood Elf and Eldar bits. I reckon the organic feelof each range complements the other very well. Now you need some Waywatchers with Longrifles!

Keep up the good work.

I like the project, things are looking quite good. Good kitbashing, and nice painting to go along with it. I like what Exo has said about the lizard guns and using Orion somehow (hell, I'd just use him as an avatar straight up, as the Avatar model is not actually 'high tek' in many ways himself), and the first thing I thought was "Exodite-esque!" when I saw your pansy-men.

Looking forward to more, and your 1000 point list too.

Greatdea, I've toyed with a similar idea with the LofTR Elves with Wood Elves, but never got round to it. Keep it up, very clean lines!
