Calentar Eldalon Wraith Guard Squad Tirdain Lost~Thol
armor animated by the spirits of the valiant dead....what memories
swirl in the mind fog of these ancient beings, and who would dare to
find out ? Rison is the Warlock most often entrusted as Spirit
Seer guide to these mammoth beings, and his care for them is
reflected in the sheen of their gleaming armor. Maybe that's
part of why they're hard to miss ? - that and the fact that they
tower over the rest of the Eldar by half again the height of the
tallest Elf ? ........ Nah
closest emotion that can be perceived from them is a sense of
anticipation. SOMETHING is waiting for them on this world;
something they know; something that calls them. Wakening in
their dreamlike state, they feel the pull from a lost leader, a
Wraithlord . Each gate that's opened stirs them to hope for
this to prove more than illusion.
love the look of these guys! Jennifer likens them to tall
Irises, flowers whose head is the stem. The decision to make
their collars a deep red was partly influenced by this conceptual
image. I'm proud to say that most of the work on them was my
own, for once. Jennifer helped with doing the detailed lines on
the loin clothes, and some of the finer finishing techniques.
Drybrushing the lighter shades on the fingers and the gun hoses was a
new learning experience for me.
the Army Card:
again, Jennifer's knack of attacking my strongest forces have left
these guys without a chance to truly show how BAD they can be.
beginning to think it might be wise for me to either leave them to
the mercies of maneuvering without a Spirit Seer among them, or
buying one more Farseer or Warlock that will serve as solely and
completely a part of their squad, despite the way that that will
affect their point value.
biggest problem with these guys is that they're so damned slow.
It's all fine and well to have Goliaths on the field, but it really
helps if you can get them in range to accomplish an attack.
even tried being devious, and hiding them behind cover, tall as they
are. I know that Jennifer can sometimes forget about opponents
that she can't see, which is the one advantage I'm able to exploit on
her. Hasn't panned out in the long run but I'm
working on it.
you wait.................*evil laugh*
