Calentar Eldalon
The Eldar Of Calentar

     Calentar Eldalon Guardian Jetbike Squadron                        Linte ~ Gwai Thor

 Each of these craft have been twigged and played with by thier respective pilots, to emit a certain unique pitch.  This, and a sort of sign language, conveyed in dips, zips, rolls and stops is the means they use to coordinate thier attacks and movements across the field.

If you've ever had three little yellow jackets buzzing around your ears, or across your line of sight, you have some inkling of what it's like to try and deal with these guys.  They may not be as impressive as the Vyper, but they're good at what they do.


About the Miniatures:

I'm hoping to get a good picture of the tops of these guys, 'cause I put a lot of thought and work into the designs there.  Each is unique,  but they also cleary match up as a unit in style.  Jennifer said it looked very Native American - highly appropriate, since I'm 1/5th Dine (Navajo).  There's almost a Face look to them, as well.  Giving each of them a bit of individualality within the squad was something I'd not seen many other painters do.   I even decided which one is the "commander" of the group, even if the stats and Morale don't take such a thing into consideration.  I do love that we were able to play with this picture in a way that made them seem to be hovering, as they should be.

Jennifer made each of the banners from the plastic clay (called "Green Stuff") available from Games Workhops, and I used toothpicks to mount them.    Jennifer found it very difficult to mold the clay.  Creating each curve for the look of the wind blowing them, and then finding a way to hold them safely in position until they dried.

The patterns are merely creative swirls and dots, and I wish I could have done better with them...but I love how they seem to be streaming in the wind.


About the Army Card:

Making this card was very difficult, as the jetbikes have so many movement options and rules.  But they are sweet little things, and so very, very fast!

Great mobile shields, and aerial diversions, the jetbikes are harder to hit than a boxer in his prime.
