As for troops, of course they’re necessary - Avengers are great and Guardians are mediocre - but your argument doesn’t track.

If you genuinely believe that, then you have every right to your opinion.
Out of curiosity what faction do you play?
Nevertheless I remain unsatisfied with the fact that I’ve spent most of my life with my favorite units being neglected and I find it distasteful. Many other Eldar players agree and we are valid in taking offense to it.
Personally, I think ‘update the core first’ goes out the window once you’ve procrastinated so long on updating the rest that you’re selling people sculpts from 1997. At full price, no less.

If the official models are derpy, might as well go for a proxy anyway. Artel W makes some amazing resin sculpts for decent prices considering the limited runs he makes, though again you're stuck with fragile resin (not as bad as Finceast, but still). Then there's the "cheap as free" option if your opponent isn't going to 'sperg out at papercraft minis.

That’s just it, anon, I’d strongly argue as an Eldar only player (except for a dabbling of CSM over the last couple of years) that the core does not always attract people to the army. This line of thinking is what made your 1k into Tzaangors: the faction.

Eldar Guardians are quite literally a militia unit that serves only to bulk up a force and hold shit down while the champions/professionals (Vehicles, Psykers, & Aspect Warriors) go and do all the cool shit. I would bet money that if you asked players what made them start Eldar perhaps one in every hundred would answer with ‘guardians’.
Eldar also aren’t a horde, so it’s less of an issue for us to have older guardians because again:
>guardians are not the core ‘flavor’ unit of eldar
>Avengers are a great alternative
>those mediocre sculpts will make up far less of the force than a horde faction
I’d much rather Guardsmen & Boyz get updated than guardians because those units are the bread and butter of those factions - not to mention you need vast numbers of them.
But Guardians getting updated again while the Aspects are even more ancient and stuck in resin makes less than no sense.

Yeah, I didn't collect them when they were like that.
That goes to my point that if the core is good then people will pick up an army. Thousand Sons are an army of about 4 units, but even at that people will still play them since they look so nice, and they don't have to use any old crap.

My Dudes are the Storm Riders. I've talked about them from time to time, but the cliffnotes are:
>fleet based, excel at navigating through warp storms in order to relieve stranded imperials or outflank chaos forces
>their power armour is covered in hexagrammic wards to protect against the warp/sorcery attacks
>use their librarians to shield their battle brothers and to help their Navigators with their job
>really good at boarding actions and salvaging equipment from battlefields, not so great at ground combat due to numbers and lack of amount of vehicles better equipped chapters would have
>individual battle brothers are supposed to be able to forge their own equipment and take on duties that would typically be done by a normal chapter's techmarines or apothecaries

Agreed.
So for the main craftworlds you have distinct ‘core’ units:
>Saim Hann
Jet Bikes
>Biel Tan
Aspects
>Lyanden
Wraith Constructs
>Ulthwe
Guardians
>Alaitoc
Rangers

By leaving any of these in ancient resin, you deny that chunk of Eldar players the units that give their subfaction its essence. This is like leaving Sanguinary Guard or Deathwing untouched for two decades or more. GW remains guilty of this with Emperor’s Children being resigned to a resin upgrade kit and nothing else.

This, to me, is negligent and shitty behavior that also reduces the profitability of Eldar. If I had a nickel for how many times Eldar players I knew considered buying yet another box of fucking finecast but then went with bikes, wraiths, or a vehicle rather than deal with the bullshit I’d be a very wealthy man.

Silver lightning bolt on a shield of blue. As for bits or gubbins, they are White Scars successors, so while they don't exactly follow Scars tactical doctrine to the letter (I used the 2.0 build a chapter rules for them), they still keep the odd totem or relic. Veterans who regularly lead boarding actions, if they aren't wearing terminator plate, usually wear ancient sets of Iron mark because of their front armor heavy design, and they usually use flamers, meltas, and swords in conjunction with shields

Tried a new way of painting black.
Should I keep the highlighting through purple into red base black tone is dark greenblue or highlight into a different color? I feel if I keep this one it might look a bit too much like spilled oil or smth
Also the highlights are much more subtle in real life, I took the pic with flash in order to better see the result on here

Gentlemen, how strong do you think Miriael is?

Kind of. There are people who have done it openly for years like the shops on shapeways but there's a legal difference between a shoulder pad and a primaris aggressor. The latter will always be taken down. How many of Artel W's sculpts were taken down because they were based of characters from Dawn of War?

This is definitely going to be like the recast community. You keep it a secret and once in a while the url has to be changed and if a GW employee asks if you about your model you deny, deny, deny.

I just started eldar and can basically just confirm this. Between my two fluff ideas for how I wanted to run my army:

>Aspect Heavy Corsair force (lots of aspects+transports & bikes)
>Wraith Army

I went with wraiths, simply because I didn't want to deal with the resin and didn't want to hunt down enough pewter for the corsair force to work.

The Chapter Master, named Maxilos Nox. Yes, that's Grey Knights Aegis. Part of his lore is that the Wraiths once went on a campaign with the Grey Knights. As per usual, the GKs tried to kill every Imperial involved afterwards, but Maxilos managed to escape along with this suit of Aegis armor. The two chapters hate each other.

Some regular Tactical Marines alongside a Venerable Dreadnought. The specialty of the Wraiths of Dorn is siege warfare and wars of attrition, and they are more comparable to the Iron Warriors than the Imperial Fists in all but name. Their version of "Companies" are 200-strong, and they usually fight as entire companies, like a wave of bulked-up Guardsmen, or like crusade-era Iron Warriors.

Fuck, thought they killed everyone. It seemed more interesting of a backstory than just saying it's relic armor, but admittedly it has always felt like a weak backstory. What would you recommend the backstory for it be instead? Or should I just make a new model for the CM?
