If I had to choose what I love most about the new Eldar codex (and there are loads of things to pick from to be fair) then a strong contender would be war walkers. While these are generally best loaded up with scatter lasers in my opinion (no matter who you’re up against, 24 S6 dice are going to hurt something….land raiders/ monoliths aside) I wanted to give these guys plenty of options, so they’re fully magnetised in case I need a different loadout. Painting-wise, I kind of tripped up by wanting them primarily green (I’m not such a fan of the green/white colour schemes I see on a lot of Biel-Tan walkers) and then realising they were very monochromatic – sooo I ended up highlighting them fairly heavily with lighter greens, making them look a little more neon than I prefer. Still, I don’t think that’s too detrimental to the overall look, and given I’ve been fielding these guys in half-built, semi-basecoated form for a few games now I’m just happy that they can hit the tabletop in (relative) style.
