So, I've begun to think about making a set of objectives for when I play. The problem is that I don't really know what to make.
I have a few ideas though, one is cutting up a jetbike and making it look like it crashed, and have the rider hiding behind it. Another is to make some form of wraith-construct-building, although I have no idea what it would represent to make it objective-like. I guess a popular theme is wounded soldiers and weapons caches, but I don't want to go for that more than possibly the crashed jetbike. I'm not a big fan of making objectives that look like eldar are getting their butts kicked, but I don't have any idea on how to make objectives that don't look like that. What do you guys use as objectives? Do you have any cool ideas about what to use?
the most ive heard of eldar themed objectives are webway portals. my friends and i once played a them game where the portal was the only objective and it was deep in the eldar deployment zone. the imperium had 2 strategic assets each from the apocalypse book. it was a lot of fun, but back to the objective itself. if you've ever played dawn of war then thats what it looked like.
There are three kinds of people in this world, those who can count and those who cannot.
Im working on some soon as well. Some will be based crystals, though I'm also thinking fo doing a 'blown off' Prism Cannon.
I also have some exarch casualties that I currently use. I do/will try to do them all on 40mm bases as I think it's a bit more fair if they are all the same size (for my opponent too!).
Yeah, 40mm seems to be the norm for objectives. I do have a prism cannon I was planning on using, but with the upcoming plastic kits I might use it as an objective. Still, most objectives I can think of are dead/dying/wounded Eldar which is not really want I want, I want more of a kick-ass style to my army, less dying, more killing. The problem is that there is very little Eldar value, perhaps some ancient artefact, themselves, and spirit stones, apart from that I doubt they see value in very much. I have been thinking about webway portals, but they are a bit big for 40mm bases.
I like the idea of exarch armor, but to your not getting your ass kicked ideas.
The stuff spirit stones are made of, very rare and only found on crone worlds. Sorry can't remember the name.
Maybe an imperium communications array that contains the location of the black library (great objective for apocolypse/attacking planetstrike)
Sword of Vaul
Any imperium item/wounded that a farseer has determined needs to survive/die to prevent a catastrophe (With farseers anything can be an objective)
Chaos artefacts that need to be destroyed
Necron parts that didn't phase out
Exodite world spirit (when your defending in planetstrike)
Imperial outpost powerstation above a tomb world that threatens to awaken the necrons.
Imperial psycher that will be a portal for some major demon
A virus that is effective against tyranids
Anything really, just let your imagination run.
40mm being the norm for the objective markers? Is 25 mm okay to use then? I mean, like do comps use 40mm?
And what is that egyptian looking thing in the Dire Avengers box (I believe its near the exarch stuff and heads when still attached to tray)? I'm gonna use those for my objectives, I think .
Fear is of the unknown...
I'm not sure about any global standards, but most tournaments in Sweden use 40mm bases for objectives and require attendees to bring at least 3 with them to the tournaments.
Some good ideas there artyle, I didn't really think of the whole Farseer/future event angle, I might use that, you also had a bunch of other solid ideas and small motivations, really nice, reps for you.
I'd put lost eldar tech...like spirit stones, tomes, or an ancient weapon
"Orcs are what happens when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles grow old and bitter."
I use the sensor vanes that you get from the grav tank kits. If you have some prisms you'll have a couple lying around. I use those + the backend of shuriken cannons I kept from converting shrieker jetbikes.

I use the terrain piece that comes with the Dire avenger box and the terrain piece that comes with war walkers. Mine are on 25mm bases. I will be going to my first GW sponsored tournament next month ('ard boyz) and wil see what the norm for objectives is there.
