    My New Eldar Vehicle Idea

    I was looking through the dark eldar mini's and a conversion came to me when I saw the Raider. I'm gonna convert it into a eldar transport with the primary purpose of being a assault vehicle while popping off a few shots. The crew can easily be made guardians and a bright lance or starcannon put at the turret. Please tell me what you think of it or if you have a name for it as I haven't made one yet.
    Thanks,

    That would basically be a light fast skimmer transport, exactly like the raider. I would not advise that conversion, as it is basically copying a DE tank, which I think is unfluffy.

    There would be changes in appearance of course, so it wouldn't resemble a DE tank too much. I like the idea of a light fast assault skimmer and the look of the raider so there is no unconvincing me. I just need conversion idea's and maybe a name for it.

    It is possible to ad a vyper-****pit to the raider, replacing the front plates and the gunner. You could then convert the original pilot into a gunner. It looks sweet, before the forum migration, there was a guide to do that conversion in the "conversions" forum, but iyt seems to have been lost. Stupid forum migration.

    Visually I'm sure it could work out. I wouldn't do it, but I'm an aweful conversion artist. Game play wise, though, I think that it would probably be to much like the raider. I can't read minds though, so I'm sure you could make it work.

    Yeah, tactically it will be a open-topped assault transport with either a bright lance or starcannon. Plus the points will be cheap so it is easily despensible. I think I'll cut off the sail thingy and all the little blades that resemble DE. And brighten the paint job with a snot green base with some skull white thrown in. It should look pretty good but all I need is a name. Maybe something that pertains to the other eldar vehicles like the wave dragon or the cobra.

    Name it after some predator bird, or some reptile, mythical or real... That would show typical eldar originality. No, I actually think that cobra would be a decent name. Post a picture when you're done.

    Um the dark eldar models are the worst in the entire 40k range. Why in the world would you want to use them as a basis for *any* conversation?

    Second point, it's not even a legal vehicle so it seems like even a bigger waste of time. Dont'g give me the whole VDR speech please because that doesnt fly with most players

    I think the Eldar have some of the best looking vehicles, why ruin it with DE crap models?

    GW's Harlequin page has a how-to on combining Raiders and Vypers into what it sounds like you are looking for. You might want to check that out.

    I firmly believe that even if it's not game wervy or even looks horrible and conversions sould be supported IMHO. Even if he never uses it in a game So what? I convert a whole ton of my models, not for game play perpeses but just to have fun doing it and I do have lots of fun finding new ways to do something or new looks from basic pieces. I wouldn't be converting if people din't support me, So Bane_of_the_Mon'keig, I support you in your endevers and wish you the best of luck!

    Mike
