I can see the Overlord saying "Remember me? I remember all of you."

Just zap them with an Eldritch Storm . . . if they're in a narrow path and they're grouped together, or this is where the seer council, rangers, dark reapers, and howling banshees come in.

I realy love this. I think you really captured their desperation/resilience. I feel I can realy imagine the soldiers saying:"but captain, we're ridiculously outnumbered!"
"Your point?"
"What are we going to do...?"
"We're going to kill them all."

Don't underestimate how important colour and shading are, they can make or break a picture, and can completely change its mood. I'm happy to say your colouring defiantly falls into the "make" category.

And THIS is why they need to make Seers epic in combat like they used to be in 2nd edition!

I have worked on my version of an Eldar codex that has created a warrior seer that is truly a combat psyker like the 2nd edition fluff had them. all offensive little defensive and dedicated to the shrine of the aspect they left.

That* is an Autarch; He's just baiting them in, just before the Gate behind him opens, and an Aavatar strides forth to butthurt everything. :D

That illustration in the newest Necron codex was an instant fav of mine, I love the newer Farseer/super-Warlock design of the guy in the middle.
BTW, how do you know they are Ulthwe? I had assumed they were Alaitoc from the associated stories, or Saim Hann because of the dragon crest.

:iconmajesticchicken:
MajesticChicken Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2012
Ah crap, if they are from Saim Hann I didn't know, I didn't see the crest. I just thought it to be random given that on the page it's shown I don't think there are Eldar stories, only on the preceding and further pages do they talk about Eldar.

I didn't think they would be Alaitoc, since they would be awfully close to the enemy for such a ranged combat focused Craftworld.

Oh, THAT'S what's going on. Man, the original sketches really don't do much justice to what all is in there. This is why we love your art.

I'm normally for the Tau or the Imperial Guard, but relly shows the Eldar as some badass guys. Standing alone against a horde of Necrons.

Well done, I love the small details you've given the the Eldar and the menacing looks of the Necrons.
