Welcome to Librarium Online!
There was a lot of speculation flying round regarding these a while back, and while the new eldar codex seems to be getting further away i thought i'd get some opinions.
I've checked previous posts and it doesn't seem to be mentioned.
What would like like to see in terms of exarchs in the next update?
Personally i'd like a 2-3 wound exarch who i can create. It's all very well having the pheonix lords and all but these people have a background, i want a commander i can call my own, give the kit i want, like an updated 2nd Ed Exarch, who can have a backstory I made.
Maybe warrior powers to be bought like chaos gifts to enhance their skill, but still keeping the standard exarchs for squad leading, these whould be like the best of the best, aside from pheonix's.
I wont be back on the board till monday UK time now but it would be quite cool to see what other people think.
Ask not a question of the eldar, for they will give you three answers all of which are true and horrifying to know.
That would be sweet as I play Biel-Tan and all of my squads are led by Exarchs, well almost all, reapers don't need an Exarch they are sweet on their own. But yeah I want and Exarch that I can make better or worse, ones that could actually handle another race's commander or something, and if they could take rune armor!!! I would love my Eldar even more...(no-homo)
yeah. they were in the works weren't they?
i think GW's plan was originally to make multi wound IC exarchs (or autarchs as the proper term is)
but really that doesn't sound very fun. i want something halfway to being a phoenix lord at least, just adding another wound won't make them very interesting
they would be alright though but i don't think they'd be anywhere near a match for an sm hq. how about something that can go toe to toe with a chaplain? (the mini one, not the 3 wound one) that would be pretty cool. they don't have to have as good strength or toughness, just have some cool eldar like ability. ie pack a really good, fast punch but still be fragile.
or, following the principle of a farseer, ie eldar get tougher as they get older they could be toughness 4. but i'm not sure how that affects their agility because thats the main eldar advantage/trademark.
That would be nice having a multi wound exarch leading a Biel-tan force... could be fluff too with the army beng led by the most senior Exarch who should be the most experienced warrior. I get a lot of enjoyment using my Biel-tan force being led by Jain Zar. Mainly as I use 2 units of 10 banshee's and I find she is rarely used. I would prefer to be able to kit out a basic exarch and use that as my HQ though.... A invulnerable save would be nice too

They should make it similar to the vehicle design rules. Give a basic exarch stats then give point values for added strength toughness and so on. Then give more weapon choices, and wargear choices.
Maybe even Wraithguard exarch. :cool:
Just a little off topic, but anyone notice how armies are getting to be more 'creator-friendly"? It seems every second army can be individually tailored in some way or another so that it plays, looks and fluffs completely differantly to any other army of the same name- the IG, 'Nids, and even SM are cases in point. This is a GOOD THING, and the Eldar should definately be the next army to undergo this "creativization".
Back on topic, uber-exarchs are a cool idea, but I see them more as a Biel-tan exclusive to be fileded as a part of the Court of the Young King. After all, Court Exarchs are selected on merit of their courage, ferocity, leadership and skill in battle, so it would make sense that Court exarchs would be stronger than your average Sarge.
P.S There are already "Exarch Wraithguards"... sort of. The Wraithlords.
P.P.S Any updates on when we'll finally get our Codex? Last I heard was taht it was scheduled for a Christmas release. Don't you just want to massacre Tyranid players at the moment?

Maybe it could be something like this:
Eldar Warlord: 55 points + upgrades
It is basically an Exarch with 3 wounds and 3 attacks
And then, you could give it special weapons from diffirent aspects like Executioner, Biting blade, Web of Skulls, Powerblades....
And then maybe mount him on a jetbike or something. And then some exarch powers and he is good to go!
Warhammer Fantasy: Warriors of Chaos, High Elves
Warhammer 40k: Eldar, Space Marines, Orks
I would agree with Viktor, to an extent. I think his idea of an Exarch is rather good, however I expect it'd be set up so you pay for a basic "Autarch" then you have to choose an Aspect for +X points, giving him access to that aspects abilities and weapons and some other classes stuff.
You cannot win, for to fight us is to give us power.
