has anyone made any super heavy tank or titan conversions for the eldar?
it seems to me, looking at the eldar tanks, that there is very little room for conversion work, so i'm interested to see what ideas people have came up with
i'm interested in seeing datasheets rules from eldar super heavy tanks and titans too, if anyone has came up with any
Do you mean only player made ones? Because they do have Forge World titans and heavies.
Check my Blog for Battle Reports, useless ranting and more! Comments appreciated.

yeah i mean player made conversions.
i just never liked the forge world ones. it doesn't make sense to build a vehicle the size of a city block and then put...one gun on it.
the baneblades have the right idea, they've got like what, 8 guns altogether?
i want to make something with that kind of firepower, but it seems like conversions would be hard thanks to the recessed nature of the eldar weapon turrets.
seems like you'd basically have to cut circles out of the tank to drop the weapon in. far beyond my skill to do haha
I actually really like the Forgeworld models (and have a few). For me, they fit the Eldar perfectly: Do one thing and do it well.
My Scorpion eats Baneblades for breakfast. Two Str D template shots with +1 on the damage table. And the Cobra II, a 10" Str D weapon that ignores viod/power shields. Baneblades are good all comers tanks, and can lay down a lot of fire to various targets while the Eldar tanks are more mission specific anti titan.
It would be great to see some super-heavy custom conversions though!
Although it does have one giant gun, it is one of the best 40k conversions I've ever seen:
eldar.arhicks.co.uk: miniatures > other > scratchbuilt eldar warp hunter (commission)
you know ive had a go at making my new fire prism more powerful as seen as the prism cannon only has one huge shot so if any thing gets close its doomed as seen as its armor is relatively week so i tryed but it just looks wierd as most eldar vehicles have to be sleek and smooth so thats what i think...
man that conversion is cool as hell
eldar super heavy's are deceivingly strong. that's for sure. my titan lays out war hounds all day. Just fortune them and keep them moving. If you want a super heavy, fork out the doh and get a cobra II or scorpion II. If you got alil extra cash get a revenant w/pulsars
Eldar -APOC- 6500 Points
Chaos Daemons -Fate Crusher- 3500 Points
Grey knights - 1000 Points
Unfortunately, we can't fortune our superheavies. All superheavies are immune to psychic spells without a strength value. This rule pretty much ruined the vampire for me. I had this dream of having it fly around with a seer council of ulthwe inside augment dooming everything on the board, having a 4+ rerollable invul, and having a guided pulsar, but that dream is no more...
But if you're interested in making one, I found some templates that I used for my prototype vampire. They're actually really good. The one I made looks alright, but I never finished it. You can find the templates here:

Also, this guy has some cool scratch builds:

If I get a camera I'll post a picture of how the vampire I made looks, just to give you a feel of what those templates will look like when they're complete.
