Eldar Howling Banshee Exarch by Sokil-Su Eldar Howling Banshee Exarch by Sokil-Su

So'Kiel Su - Howling Banshee Exarch.

Done for the contest 'My alter-ego in Warhammer 40K universe' at the Russian Warhammer Art community.

I did some redesign to the armor, and this design was initially inspired by a very talented :iconredagent1010:! Thanks so much, R.Agent, for all the inspiration!

Hope you guys like this picture =D
I'd be glad to hear your impression ;)

There was a story here, but it was written so early in my experience with the Eldar, that it was 200% heretical to the lore. I have finally deleted it for good!

So, I randomly decided to check and see if there was any good Eldar art on DeviantArt after writing up a new list for tabletop. Upon finding this I couldn't help but favorite it. It looks awesome.

No I meant which Eldar did you see killing a space marine, because there are two of them.

Спасибо, рад, что понравилось. На самом деле там очень много чего странно смотрится. Я с тех пор много чего узнал о рисовании, так что подумываю переделать и этот рисунок тоже. Но всё равно спасибо!

Well, actually it's not, and though I like it as an idea, honestly, I'm even a bit ashamed of it now and think of remaking it on a new level, because as it is now - it has tons of mistakes and is not good as a painting. Still I'm very glad you liked it, thanks a lot!

Love the amount of pieces and shapes in the armor
Full view was indeed a must lol, almost missed things like the Wraithlord in the back.
The environment is also filled with stuff, eyecandy here and there.
like the Farseer and Guardian shadow in the front :D. Adds some mystery to the piece and room for imagination

I like the armour redesign, the characterisation, and the post-battle narrative, but the Banshee in the middle background is VERY short.
