Default Exodites:

I was wondering what all of you thought of the Exodite Eldar.

I think they are by far the coolest thing about the Eldar race, come on dragon riding Eldar knights.

Ive read alot of the Fluff GW has produced on them and they are pretty cool, there are also some battles involving Exodites in a few of the short stories GW produces.

__________________________________________________ _________________________

You can make a pretty reasonable Exodite list from the Saim-Hann rules (ive put a list up on here i'll have a look). The Army won't be very competative but should look great.

It will mainly be based around Shining spears.

There are also some unofficial dexes you can find on the net.

__________________________________________________ _______________________________

EDIT: Heres the original list :

Troops:

5 Dragon Knights Squad (Shining Spears): Exarch w/ Power weapon, skillfull rider and evade.

5 Dragon Knights Squad (Shining Spears): Exarch w/ Bright lance, skillfull rider and evade.

Heavy Support:

Megadon (Wraithlord): Starcannon, 2 Flamers.

HQ:

Baron (Wild Rider Chief): Power Weapon, Shuriken Cannon.

Visionary (Farseer): Jetbike, Witchblade, Fortune,Mindwar, Spirit Stones, Ghost helm, ROW,

: 1000 points.
__________________________________________________ ____________________

When i do start putting this army together i will use horned ones with shining spear riders and fire dragon heads for my dragon knights.

The megadon will be a lizardmen steggadon with a starcannon in the howdah and two guardians holding flamers also in the howdah.

The Baron will be mounted on the carnasaur model and i will use a variety of peices for the baron itself (probably mainly dark elf and high elf peices with a few bits from 40K just so he fits in).

The Visionary will be mounted on the woodelf dragon and i will use a converted warlock to ride it.
__________________________________________________ _________________________

The army itself obvioulsy isn't designed with gaming power in mind and i will no doubt have massive problems when facing any other army in the game but it should provide a very interesting challenge.

So what do you all think?, any conversion suggestions? or unit ideas?.

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

Great, got any pics?

Personally, I love Exodites, but I don't have the time or money to go converting an army of them unfortunately.
I think it's a shame that you have to treat the Dragon as a Jetbike. :P Hopefully there may be some Exodite rules in the new Eldar Codex.

im going to get pics soon. cause im entering it for the best painted conversion. only problem is i painted the armor the same color as the lizard. but it kinda gives you a camoflauge feel methinks.

Yeah, it's completely legal, which is why Veq put the unit-entry eqiuvalents next to each entry, so you could see what Saim Hann unit each Exodite model represents.
