I'm a long-time fantasy player and never expanded to 40k even if I always liked the environment. With the advent of sixth edition rules, which look interesting to me, and after having read the Forgeworld Imperial Armour Volume 13, I decided I wanted to do some 40k stuff.
One additional appeal of 40k is that I'm primarily a modeller who enjoys converting extensively my minis but I still like to play reasonably competitive lists. The optimal size of units in fantasy has really become mental since 8th edition and I've become increasingly frustrated with my inability to build competitive armies of converted and painted minis within the limited amount of time I can devote to the hobby.
Anyway, for my initial foray in 40k, I've decided to go for Craftworld Eldar as I like their aesthetics. I chose an obscure Craftworld (Yme-Loc), as this will allow me to make up the fluff and I also like their colour scheme. I've put together a ranger/pathfinder as a test mini. C&C most welcome.
