Those of you that have been following my WIP Eldar thread (http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...ldar-pics.html) will know that I usually have a few (dozen) projects on the go at once. This one is pretty different so I thought I'd start a new thread for it.
Having purchased the head of a Revenant Titan on eBay (that's my third now! One day I'll get the whole thing; just don't let my fiancee know....). I wanted to do something cool with it, so thought about using it as a cockpit on a Falcon. But that Falcon would itself have to be pretty special, so I've decided to make my own Eldar grav tank - the Eagle. This is meant to sit partway between a Falcon and Scorpion in terms of size and (once I've developed some rules for it) act as a transport for a Farseer. It won't have a huge offensive capability, but it's meant to give other bits of the army a bigger punch. It will have a Warlock crew and is meant to keep a Farseer safe whilst allowing him to use the psychic relays and Warlock crew in the vehicle to boost his powers. (One of the ideas for rules I had is to have the vehicle count as a Warlock/Spiritseer if within 12" for the purporses of Wraithguard and Warlocks in their "wraithsight" test).
The vehicle is loosely based on this classic Epic 40,000 design for a "Farseer Falcon":
Here are my concept sketches:
And this is the turret (I'm aligning the cockpits centrally on this vehicle; it's a minor change but a hell of a lot work - why do I bother? ):
And here is a rough mock-up of what I've achieved so far. The wings are 3cm longer than the standard Falcon to make it seem like a more substantial vehicle:

It's coming along really well so far and I'm hopeful that I'll still be able to have the top hull removable (as with my Falcons) so that you can see the interior (which will be fully-remodelled and feature a scrying ball for the Farseer).
Comments and suggestions welcome! Rules will follow at some point when I've had more of a think about how this thing should work in a game...
Very very cool mate. It's a really awesome concept, the idea of a Warlock crewed vehicle that enhances the Farseer himself. Its really in-line with how the Eldar should play, units complementing each other and all that jazz.
Anywho, its a great start, looking forward to more, and to see what rules you come up with. Rep for you!
Wow thats cool as, and the rest of your stuff is awsome consider yourself Reped and Subscribed!
Come and join the YoungBloods social group!
Love the face on this one. Cant wait to see it painted.
another great conversion from you, you're a modelling machine. Your work is really inspirational and the tutorials on your website are very helpful for assembling my own eldar. Repped.
Add me! Let me know your forum name too! =)
A very cool and interesting idea you got here. Can't wait to see more!
Great work on both the concept sketch and on the real model, your conversion skills are amazing as usual!
The Titan head is an awesome idea, I want to do something similar (but much less ambitious, using a Wraithlord head) on a Wave Serpent carrying a Wraithguard unit.
Congratulations and rep for you... again!
This is a great idea and I will have to try it if I ever go crazy and as awesome as you are at converting.
Only thing that is kinda annoying me is where the head is. I your scetch it is almost inside the tank. It might just be the lack of the plate behind it but I think that it would look better if the face was half inside the tank.

Thanks everyone for your comments; it's always encouraging to have support for such hare-brained schemes
My main focus at the moment is to get the wings sorted - the fins on the underside are going to be a bit of a pain to extend but I've got a plan that ought to work. I'm still hopeful that the upper hull will lift away, but it does have some gaping holes that need to be repaired somehow before that's even close to being a possibility...
Wow, great looking conversion, that's a FW titan head, non? Great work man!
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
