Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi. im going to be building and painting a 2000 point eldar exodite army, ATM its a pretty rough idea, but this is at least,
Saimm-han (I think) themed list, with jetbikes replaced with dark elf cold ones, and a mixture of eldar parts.
fire prisms based on Stegadons.
i want a few vipers in the list, but im trying to find a suitable model to base them on, ideally a lizard/dinosaur slightly larger than DE cold ones.
Avatar converted from orion.
harlequin unit, made from wardancers/harlequin parts.
please post any suggestions as to models and unit i could use, i want it to be a very jungle themed army.

Great! Another army of exodites! Check out mine in my link in me' signature. Also check out macewind's, he's got more done than me because I'm 13 and can't realy buy something new every week (and I'm the slowest painter this side of the moon ). For the vypers I would suggest a carnosaur, but if you're gonna have a few in there, you will have to reposition some of them so they don't look the same. Also you will have to show them with two crew, like the vypers. The Cold one models are great, and if you go a couple pages into my thread, it shows how I painted them. On that note, have you picked a colour scheme yet?
Yay! A new Exodite player.
i was really tempted to paint them as Saim-hann
with red cold ones, possibly with lava bases, tho i may have gone with snow/ice to contrast the reds.
in the end tho i decided to go with a jungle themed army, so probably quite a muted palette of browns and greens.
You could still do a sort of Saim Hann theme, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend pure red as a colour for the more natural elements of the army (i.e., your Cold Ones). Instead, go for a muted red-brown type colour with a couple specks of more reddish colours, but keep it very muted and earthy.
we shall see how the paint flows on the first squad. ill hopefully get the models built and photos up on wednesday.
Carnasaurs would be your best bet for vipers, but as far as I can tell theres only one model of a carnasaur and it's expensive as hell. For a third of the price up here in Canadia you could get a terragon rider. Larger than a cold one, and able to fly over stuff much like a viper I would think this is your best choice, model/money wise.
Ask me about the Black and White Space Marine on the Black and White Bike!!!
Slight delay on these as GW didnt have any dire avengers left lol. picked some up today and have started building. pics tomorrow.
If you want the name of your thread changed up (i.e., so it doesn't say 'NO PICS YET'), send a PM to minus_t or another painting moderator asking them to change it. I'm sure they'd be happy to oblige when they can.
edit: Also, can you look into the Dire Avengers box for me, and see how many back-flags are included? The one that, on the box art, is put onto the Exarch. Will you be using those flags in your project? I'm looking to get some for my Dark Eldar ToP project, so figured I'd ask you Eldar folk.
