Default Eldar Kill Team

Hey, I wanted to make an Eldar kill-team, but I really don't know what to get. I have 40 bucks that I'm willing to spend on it right now. I really want to do alot of coversion stuff, but i don't know what to get.

Prices vary around the world, where I am $40 will not buy you a Guardian squad.

Have you had a close look at what the limitations are in a Kill team? The example at the back of the rulebook is very nice but breaks a lot of the rules. My best advice is to get some stiff plasticene and practice your sculpting, Kill teams are very highly personalised, and using green stuff will give them that extra touch.

After that, get some Storm guardians, unless I am mistaken these also come with enough parts to make a mix of defenders and stormers. This gives you the option of using your new found conversion skills to give each model a unique apperance by sculpting new bits onto the Guardians. I've made Farseers and warlocks out of guardians, and they look rather good.

Havins said all this, taking a single aspect warrior unit and using that is a lot simpler. My reccomendation is Fire dragons, these guys have nasty weaponry and enough range to stay outside spotting distance and blow away a goon sqaud per turn.

Up to you, one has a lot more personality, the other is faster and simpler.

Good luck.

As to green stuff, practice on something like Das or Du-kit, Green stuff is not cheap.
Glue some bits of sprue together to use as a support and sculpt your details on over the top.

myself I never practiced sculpting (my first GS job dries as we speak) but its good if you go from simple to hard, like filling a gap in a SMurf arm (w/ armour playes) to sculpting a toga'ish thing to a fulll blown cloak, just work your way up.

I'm a fan of the aspect squad team myself, scorpions banshees dragons and spiders all make good candidates.
