Welcome to Librarium Online!
Ok, I now want to start a Harlequin army because I have always loved jokes, pranks, and especially card games and this army suits the looks and personal intake on a game such as strategy well. :tongue: So how exactly do I start such a feat of an army... do I just use Eldar troops and convert to Harlequin? Or do I use a mixture of Dark Eldar and Eldar? What exactly do I use? :wacko:
-Thanks for the time...
well you could convert from (dark) Eldar, but you can also i believe purchase the 3rd Ed Harlequin models from the online store
I started a small troope of Harlequins a while back. I remember basing them on Guardians and using ALOT of greenstuff. Modelling capes and hoods.
Favourite Army: Eldar
Currently Working on: Ulthwe Strike Force
Currently Using: Saim Hainn Wild Riders
Win Record: 13/9/4
- Sigh. Entered a games night tournament with my new 1000 pt Ulthwe Strike Force and got obliterated. So many marines these days with heavy bolters.
Thats 1st and 2nd edition.Originally Posted by ch1cken
The harlequins were let go in 3rd.
So I know I am reviving this topic, but what do you think would be better... Just converting eldar or dark eldar or just buying the models.
(Because I know there are EO rules to play with so what would you convert for the mimes and the extra units that are present?)
Dude, The real harle models are better then any of the horrible conversions with dark eldar/guardians or DH assasins I have seen.
I'm not saying you couldn't make cool conversions with those model I just havent see any that look anything nice...and esspecially hate it when people put them doing cartwheels or handstands (I would rather imagine it)...kinda lame when the figure is static the whole game.
I say go with the real models, and if your good with greenstuff convert them from those.
Dark eldar models blow! :yes:
Thanks lol.. It just seems if you need to give them upgrades use green stuff? Is that what you are supposed to do? Because it seems that the hard metal models are all made with guns that can't be changed! :cry: :cry:
I am guessing you have to change the models or just buy specific models with teh weapons?
The Harlie models are actually pretty nice looking; however, they're like the old metal Terminators. They are so incredibly static it's screwy. :wacko: I'd always recommend trying your hand at converting some DE or CE models before buying the static, look-a-like models that are already out for Harlies.
I've seen some really good conversions; it just takes time and effort to make them look good, but it can be done.
i got a few ideas,
for shadowseer use a callidus assassin, it looks like its got river blade and neuro disruptor
for saolitare use a dark eldar mandrake i fink.
death jester use fire dragons
troupes use eldar storm guardians with dark eldar bodies or just keep them as they are.
those are my conversion ideas, make it up it doest have to look exact, just make sure you use eldar/dark eldar bits
do gods exist in this world? or did man just made god in his image? if you do not agree answer this, why do we portrait gods as humans? why do our gods look like us? if gods are mighty and powerful then why do they look like the weak.
If u can definetly buy the old models do it, there are some nice poses for them and only a few are standing staticcally (if thats a word). They are really detailed and look fantastic when painted up nicely.
