Eldar Autarch Work in Progress

I’ve been working on a new model for my Eldar collection. Eldar Autarch!

She’s kitted out with a Banshee mask, power weapon (maybe Shard of Anaris), Fusion pistol, Hawk wings, and Faolchu’s wing. She has extreme mobility and can perform a couple different jobs on the field.

Her natural Autarch ability of governing reserves is handy for the Falcon Cloudstrike, but what she really adds to the army is mobile support for other units. She can combo charge with another unit to shut down overwatch. Her fusion pistol makes her a threat against armor and ICs. She could work as a hunter in the opponent’s backfield as well stalking weaker support units and chaff. She can practically get anywhere on the table in a turn or two with either her epic run move or deep-strike from ongoing reserves. Her threat range is massive thanks to the Swooping Hawk Jump Pack.

She is a bit fragile, so that movement may be something used defensively as much as anything else.

Next step is to finish up the sculpting.  There are some rough areas on her legs which need to be cleaned up and some details which need to be refined. After that painting time.

Her CCW arm is magnetized so I can swap it with something else.  I am not certain that I am comfortable with her using a power halberd or some-such, so I may make a sword arm as well. The Shard of Anaris is fantastic for character hunting so I think that is something worth considering for her.  Its a pricey bit of wargear, so it may only appear in certain games.

I’m looking forward to getting this character onto the board.
