With the new codex, I had the idea of making a Halie themed army. I read some fluff, and found out some mentioning of a Spirit Walker which was basicly the Harlie version of a Wraithlord. Now, since there is no model for it, I figured I'd make my own. One small problem though... What's look like?! I've read some fluff about it, but could find no mentioning of it's appearance.
I was wondering if anyone could show me a picture or discribe it's appearance. My guess would be a "dancing" Wraithlord. Or maybe an "image" of Slaanesh (But how does that look like?) since, if I'm not mistaken, Solitaire soul stones are used for them.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
OK somewhere someone messed with this, I have the original articles.
Wraithlord, during the early days, were Eldar dreadnaughts (seriously, the model had not changed (until the current plastic one) since it first came out, the original articles have scmeatics showign an eldar curled up in a fetal possition, in the head)
slightly later, Spirit walkers and ghost walkers appeared, these coincided with the launch of imperial robots (castelan, conqueror etc)
The spirit walker was essentially an Eldar dreadnaught with a small, eldar helmet like, head on it, it was manned by the dead spirit of an eldar trapped in a spirit stone (sound familiar)
Ghost walkers were the same concept but smaller (again sound familiar?)
So spirit walkers as concepts, became wraithlord, although they used the Dreadnaught model
Ghost walkers as a concept became wraith guard
Harleys, actually appeared in the same compendiums (but different WDs) and can take dreadnaughts and bikes originally, as well as looted vehicles!
Therefore, the harlequin spirit walker = a wraithlord, same model
The only odd thing was Harlequin Dreadnaughts/wraithlord/spirit walkers could take D cannons (hohoho, now I have a machine gun!)
Accordingly there is no different model from GW since it is the same thing, BUT convention said, in the good old days, using the metal wraithlord model, replace the head with the canopy of the Harlequin bike, which was metal and had the face of the laughing god modeled in to it
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Woah, completely forgot about this.
I guess I could put the canopy of a Harlie bike on them, but I already have 6 bikes with the canopy in my army, and it may look a bit dull, though I could probably model it though...
Thing is... Solitaires don't belong to the Laughing God. They belong to Slaanesh. An image of the Laughing God represented in a spirit walker wouldn't exactly fit. And since the Solitaire plays the part of Slaanesh during life, it should probably look more like Slaanesh...

Hope is the first step on the path to dissapointment. - Isador Akios
Solitares do not belong to Slaanesh. They worship the Laughing god the same as the other Harlies. Slaanesh is the sword enemy of the Harlie's and they fight a neverending battle against them. The problem is that Slaanesh wants the souls of solitare's more than anything else in the universe warp or otherwise. So when a solitare is slain the Laughing god Duels the Chaos god for the soul of the eldar. Problem is Slaanesh usually wins. Solitares take on the Role of SLaanesh in the plays as an Insult to the god not as a worship. Any Harlequin who worships or belongs to SLaanesh isnt a harlequin at all seeing as it goes against everything that they stand for.
