    What do Craftworlds look like?

    I've been wondering for a while what Craftworlds look like. I always imagined them as large ships, kind of an oval shape, but I need to know for sure because I'm starting an Eldar Uber Army, and making a Game Board is part of the process (You'll read all about it soon).

    well one of the old BFG magazines shows it like this (see attached)

    its very very similar to how I always imagined them, how that would go with your interior plans I don't know, but its the only picture I know of

    Hmmm, completely enclosed? I would of thought that it would be open, and have kind of a clear dome around it (although not a dome shape).

    i think there is a drawn picture on a craftworld in the Codex, but it seems that it aint the whole craftworld.

    take a look and decide.

    In the BFG resources it gives you a great picture of a craftworld. LINK! If the link doesn't work or sends you to the wrong spot it's in the BFG Resources, Yriel's Raiders, page 2. Also, no two craftworlds are exactly the same, melding and changing to support the population. They are planet sized ships and this will give you a basic idea of how they look.

    I've seen pictures of (don't ask me where) where it shows it as a sorta round shape with a large dome on top, kinda like a turtle with a glass shell with spires around the dome and inside it.

    Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

    Remember that they were basically mobile hippy communes when they were build. Improvisation and adaptation are the names of the games here.

    Well, if they where mobile hippy communes they should look like this:



    The VW craftworld!

    But yeah, i agree, they've been around for more than 10k years, they will be diverse.
