Eldar Furious Angel Concept by Sokil-Su Eldar Furious Angel Concept by Sokil-Su
My entry for the Eldar VS Dark Eldar concept-art fight in Russian Warhammer Art Community - [link]
The task was to create a new unit for either faction.

I wanted to pose this unit as a highly swift and maneuverable space infantry that matches the speed of an average interceptor and equips multipurpose energy 'tentacles', called wings to provide additional agility, protection and melee weapon (can be used for boarding ships). Well this idea looks kinda 'why not' to me, but causes distrust and anger in the community =D
Still, I'm grateful to those who tries to help me with logical advice.

Thus, I ask you - what would you see this unit to be like?
What is its purpose? Can it have one? Share your opinion, I'm glad to hear your ideas.

It's a shame they almost stole your idea when forgeworld made their new aspect.
This is a awesome design i love how the wings actually come out of the helmet

I know I'm late to the party, but I can't help but comment. Fantastic work! As everyone else has said, it's heavy looking armor, so this warrior belongs somewhere in harm's way. I'd say it's a breach clearer. the weapons on its forearms could be some kind of concussive pulse rifle (short to mid range) that shoot waves of, well, concussive energy, knocking lines of enemy troops back and pummeling them simultaneously. The energy tentacles can be used for more precision close quarters combat. And the jet pack would allow the warrior to travel to bottle necks and or places of congestion on the battlefield and bust the door in, figuratively speaking, allowing the other aspect warriors to rush in and do what they do best. Again, wonderful job.

When I first looked at this I noticed the pair of arm-mounted shuriken pistols and the fairly heavy armour (for Eldar this armour is actually VERY heavy. Like Dark Reaper heavy.) and thought to myself "Is this some kind of close range front-line aspect warrior?"
It (he/she) looks like the perfect soldier to deal with swarms of weak armoured creatures without getting stuck in hand-to-hand. Perhaps this trooper would be sent out to worlds infected by genestealer cults to exterminate them before they call the swarm. Or maybe a key unit to hold back an Ork hoard while the rest of the army gets their shots off at bigger targets.
All in all I think this aspect prototype is very cool. Great job.

I don't know. From the look of the armor they seem less like a fast attack infantry and more like a heavy infantry. The way the plates overlap several times, it seems to be a thicker style of material. With the wrist mounted weapons, at least they look like possible shuriken pistols, it almost feels like you're trying to make a living version of wraithguard. Give them an eldar equivalent to the space marine jump pack and you have basically an Eldar Assault Marine. Give it a plasma grenade, eldar chainsword, and a heavy shuriken pistol....and make it a heavy infantry you have something that's hard hitting yet semi-faster than regular Guardians that could stand toe to toe with Space Marines.

i like your idea i'm an eldar fan myself (mindblade) get it. it would be cool if there were a medium to heavy type infatry. they die too easily but i think they still rock ass.

well if your still looking for opinions the tentacles kinda look like hair but i think if you made them fan out to the sides more they would look more aggressive and look a tad more angelic i hope my input helps haha i loved the pic but i saw post about telling you what we think so very well done any way i love the agile sleak look of your character wonderful work man :)

Would be my pleasure) Though everyone here convinced me this unit is unbalanced, not fitting the universe in whole and the Eldar in particular, and is just stupid =D
Still, it would be interesting to know how you see it =D
