Eldar Grey Ghost Codex Entry by tacticangel Eldar Grey Ghost Codex Entry by tacticangel
As some of you have seen previously, I have created a concept for an Eldar Aspect Warrior Shrine. I call them the Grey Ghosts. They utilize psychic pike, meant to be a ranged weapon, though it can be used in close combat to a limited degree as well. They have on their back a psychic collector on their back.

They are meant to emulate the aspect of those ghosts who fought by Khaine's side and the dead Eldar who return to the sides of their kin as Wraiths to wage war again. They are slow, heavily armored, purposeful, and possess a powerful soul.

This particular illustration is just to help me create a PDF that looks like your standard Codex entry. Why? Why not? It seemed like a cool idea at the time.

"It seemed like a cool idea at the time"....That's really all the reason you need to on a drawing spree......

...So do these guys come with some concealed close combat weapons or is their armour thick and its inner workings strong enough to give them a significant edge in close combat, particularly when they are forced to do it hand to hand style?

Haha! Some months later GW releases some lore about the Shadow Spectres, aspect of the eternal warrior. They are basically this, but with a jump pack!

Are you sure GW doesn't have any spies among your closest friends?

Well that makes sense. I would encourage GW to spy on me though. I have good ideas. Granted, like so many gamers, I would prefer they paid to watch or listen to me instead.

Actually, I had forgotten about these, but I can't see how they weren't an inspiration for the Shadow Spectres. That just can't be a coincidence. Did you design make the pikes before or after they released the new Fire Prism?
tacticangel Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2013
I think it was between the new Fire Prism (not sure) and the jet-pack heavies Forgeworld came out with. I remember being told GW had ripped me off, which I didn't really see, had no interest in pursuing, and sometimes I feel would be a good design direction for them to consider.

Plus, always love the pipe dream that they might want to hire me. I imagine that would ruin that 0.01% chance.
