Welcome to Librarium Online!
How do you create Path Finders?
Do I just buy Ranger Models and paint them differently? I was looking at the Codex examples and they look the same as rangers, but I wasn't 100% sure how to make them official and legal when it comes to modeling.
Just buy rangers. Try and make them look a wee bit different from rangers. Not their cloaks, jsut change their bodies a bit...
You cannot win, for to fight us is to give us power.

That's what I figured. I'll keep thier cloaks to look like camouflage and I'll change their armor to be different then the rangers.
I actually painted their cloak differently. I mean they do get a +2 to armor saves, so their cloaks are probabily the best type. try a green and silver or a green and gold combination. Looks....mystic.
Officially you dont evern need to paint them differently, but your opponent needs to be cleear which squad is the pathfinders
Everything you have been told is a lie!
pathfinders are units who are like ranger wit steroids....The kill alot of troops with umm 4 5 6 roll wit an AP1 THAT KILLS. pathfinders are and should be painted with a silvery white or camo look

Pathfinders "are and should" be painted however you want, as long as they look different than your average Ranger. (For opponent's benefit.)Originally posted by SA_taralekomus@Nov 21 2004, 18:36

My Pathfinders are painted in a snow camo scheme this way you can keep them in with a colour pallete ice blues and white for pathfinders darker blues for rangers, or vice-versa if you wish. Very sleek and easy to do as well
as for the weapons I used green stuff to extend the barrels of the rifles and add a built up targeter, will get a photo one day
not necessary but adds a nice theme
"Ah.. i'm almost done with these 3rd quater spreadsheets and still no sign of.."
"What, is up, my dog?"
"Ughhh I'm not your dog"
"Waterman, you crack me up! that's why you're my D-O-G-E"
"Your Doge? What are you talking about? I'm Strong Bad Waterman works in retial shipping resources"
"Ah-ha Good one waterman, I mean good one MY DOG"
Can you give us a brief description on how to apply a camouflage effect to ther cloaks? Is it as easy as doing a blob of light green and then paint a darker green over it leaving some of the lighter green shapes around it?
Blobbing as you so eloquently called it is very easy to do. You should however try mottling. Its under the Alaitoc section in the craftworld eldar codex. I think taht looks better than painted camo.
By the way just to clarify they can look just like your rangers, model wise and paintscheme wise. Some people just enjoy making them special, since they are relatively special.
If you do opt to do a painted camo scheme try something else other than the typical us army look, try to make some obscure shapes and different colors to make a more eldar pattern....I just think it would be cool!
