One thing I might humbly suggest is to either make this list of yours based on one or two specific Exodite worlds, or at least note that this is one representation among many, as far as offering a glimpse into the varieties of Exodite culture.


While I wish you guys well, I don't like the thought of having the Dragon Host undermined in the process...

Undermined...in what way?
I was actually just coming on to suggest that we create forces for seperate Exodite worlds, just like the Eldar have different Craftworlds. These worlds could include a 'Dragon Host' Saim-Hann like force, a Megadon force and maybe a Ranger-based force.
Love some feedback.

The exodite forces would contain Rangers/pathfinders in their list, as well as others on the path of the outcast (such as corsair crews?).

Would probably have access to Harlequins too..
(note; as should the Dark Eldar...)

The 'Dragons' would in my mind probably replace the vehicles that the Craftworld Eldar use,
('standard dragons' replace jetbikes, 'megadons' replace the falcon/fire prism and maybe the Wave Serpent?).

It occurs that there could be things from the wood elves that could be incorperated too (wardancers = 'aspect' of Kurnous?)

Would they have shards of Khaine, or are they only for the Craftworlds?

What about the world spirit?
Would the 'wraith' units (ynnead) of the craftworlds be replaced by something more 'Elemental' (isha) on the Maiden Worlds?

I agree that the list should allow for a range of varience to represent as many of the differing Maiden Worlds as possible...


These are my take on the Exodites, I hope they are of use.

What about incorporating into the list that allows the player to customize off the base units; kind of like the kindreds of the wood elves or the marks of chaos.

You could do some basic Troops in the same way that a unit of Kroot is done.
Just a thought..

That what I was kind of thinking. That way you'd have a base and then the player could customize the way they want. Also it could kind of be like the craftworld thing where certain troops move; ie. from fast attacks to troops. Maybe a hybrid off the space marine divergences system would work.

For ease of users i would reccomend making this Codex in 4th Ed rules.
