    Runes... what do they look like?

    Hey all, the modeling and painting demon inside me has been stirred to do a farseer. My problem is I want to put runes showing what powers he uses or the runes of witnessing or warding. I was wondering if anyone knew of an "official" look for these or are they vague and unknown?

    Not much of a help, but I was thumbing through my old codex, 3rd ed. I think (blue cover) and in the back there is some fluff about runes. They had a diagram that had about 10 runes that described the different types of eldar. Not a lot, but it was interesting.

    Thanks, I happen to have that codex and it is helpful. At least I have a guide to go from for when I try. Thanks again for the suggestion.

    From all the pictures I have seen and by thumbing through the book Eldar tend to have lots of triangles, circles, and lines for their runes. Crescent shapes also appear, but less regularly.

    I made up some examples, myself based on what I saw from the codex.
    Feel free to use some of them yourself.

    Oh, I like that! Nice job on the highlights. Love the runes they seem very authentic. Thanks for the feedback.

    Here's some of the upgrades for Taldeer in DOW 2, both the runes are shown, although the Runes of Witnessing are really tiny and pretty much impossible to depict until a larger pic or the game is released. Runes of Warding are clear on the cape though (ok, one of the runes, the others are tiny as well, but at least it's a start.)

    Edit: Found a larger pic of Taldeer's regalia
