Default New Eldar idea...

Maybe as a new Aspect choice...or as a special char or something...I'd like to see an Eldar version of an Assassin...

I'm thinking of a cross between the Callidus Assassin (keyword C'tan Blade) and a Harlequin Solitaire...

Figure Deep Strike/Infiltrate rules apply...some sort of Chameleoline cloak, serious weapon (C'Tan blade might be nice here, and in keeping with the whole Eldar/C'tan fluff..) and some serious charge bonuses....make her/him fast, deadly and hard as hell to hit...

If an Aspect, maybe call Dark Furies or some such...

just an idea...

An interesting idea. But I don't really think it fits in with Eldar fluff.

Hmm...sounds great but I can't see it happening with Eldar. That just sounds more like Dark Eldar to me.

hmm...I suppose an Assassin is a little dark for Eldar...

But I agree...I can definitely see Dark Eldar having an Assassin...

Eldar having a C'Tan blade goes against all the fluff.

The Eldar hate the C'Tan and would do everything in their power to destroy them (they have tried many times). They know that C'Tan phase blades are part of an actual C'Tan so would never use one.

Still i don't think assassins go against Eldar fluff, they are concerned with keeping their species intact thus try often to avoid conlict, assassination is a way to achieve this. Although i'm sure many members of Eldar soceitey are perfectly suited to the role without the needing to specifically train them, some Exarchs would be suited, seers, rangers. One of the rangers roles is to disrupt the enem which does involve assassinating high ranking enemy officers (sniping them out).

Still a specific eldar assassin would be interesting.

I think an advanced kind of Pathfinder (see Codex:Craftworld Eldar) would be quite appropriate, or a Harlequin. I have models for both, should I write up some proxy rules and post pictures of the models? Then we can see which everyone prefers and then submit it to the House Rules section?
