The Eloi will get the attention they deserve infantry sets are relatively easy to put together but the vehicles are another matter entirely. We are still trying to find an aesthetic that is IP safe but that still shouts space elves.

@ Thinking Stone - (see above)

O, I definitely agree it would be nice to have all of those, and I can imagine some nice ways they can be done! I was just providing some suggestions; I have seen other proxy options for some that seem fair, but the 'Eldar' niche is not well covered by anyone anyone today. I think @moredakka and company are very aware of that, though.

Just to clarify what I meant before, for the Blademasters, my thoughts were to use chainsword-only ones painted green for Scorpions, and the sword-only ones painted bone for Banshees. The Eloi Guard make fair stand-ins for Farseers and Warlocks with their ceremonial gear and Jed'ai powers. Other proxies will always depend on the imagination of the players, but, as a stop-gap so one can play, differently-painted and based units can be visually distinct.

It is the eternal problem with miniatures lines, though: there needs to be enough interest to justify the creation of the rest of the line, but the more of the line needs to be there to generate interest! I guess the question (aside from the artistic questions) is what more basic elements are required to get people making whole armies—as you say, @Deb, a mechanised Reserves infantry army with jetbike scout and teleport heavy support is a narrow range of options.

I have collected a decent sized Eldar force, but I need to get more Wraithguard, Wraithlords, Storm Serpents, Void Spinners, Night Spinners, Nightwing Interceptors, War Walkers, Vypers, and some more varied Aspect warriors to complete the 3 x 5000 point armies I am building (Sian-Hann, Biel-Tan and Iyanden).

I plan to have each race/ main army list around 10,000 to 15,000 points each so I have a lot more collecting to do.

Tricky thing also is that not all John's designers can do organics. I for one can't (yet), and with the Novans and Cybershadows. More will follow though. :)

Can I ask how far off on the horizon an Eloi one man assault strider might be? My gaze is turning towards Eldar in 6mm and I have a wish list!

I have lots of plans for the Eloi, new sculpt infantry and specialist troops, new vehicles and new walkers.

Some of this stuff would have been out by now if it was not for Nurgle messing us about but there you go.

I do have a light walker on the cards but just cannot say when we are likely to see it at the moment sorry.

Thanks for the update, its good to know that the range will be filled out. No problem on the timescale, I am patient enough.

Yes, perfect. There is even a bit of a Rogue Trader feel about the poses that I love.
