What are cold ones doing in the Warhammer 40,000 section?
Maybe this will help:
More true to life colours on this one:
My good buddies and I have a problem. All of our armies are Imperials. I have an Ultramarine force of 1000pts, one mate has a guard army of 2000pts, and my other friend has an Angels of Absolution army of indeterminate value, mostly because he needs to get off his rump and open some paints.
Actually, the last paragraph isn't entirely true. We also have a 1000pt Tau infantry army, but it's ridiculously underpowered, so we've gone off using that until hopefully the little blue guys get some codex love in the new year.
So in the meantime it's Exodites. Most of our armies are extremely slow, so we decided to get a fast army. The kind of army that will be able to move from one side of the board to the other in one go. Here's what we decided:
Army selection: Everything must either: A] Be fast; B] Infiltrate or C] Be on a dragon.
Modeling: Everything must look Eldar, but not like a Dark or Craftworld Eldar riding a dragon. This was important to me. Most of the dragon knights I've seen look like dire avengers on lizards. This should not happen with this army.
So far, the work I have done has involved painting 5 WayWardens (Pathfinders. Just used the old metal ones. Kinda against the modeling rule, but now that all craftworld eldar have those new style helmets the old rangers look suitably different to my mind.), painted one Dov'aa (dragon) and built 5 Dov'aa'Kiin, or Dragon Knights. They will be painted soon, and posted here.
We've also had loads of discussions about Exodite organisation, language, mythology and army lists, but this post is getting long, and we haven't had a picture for a while so I'll close with this, and post some more with some new pictures when available.
Cheers for looking.
