A word to the wise

"Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers, all of which are true and terrifying to know." - Inquisitor Czevak Turns out, the answers are; "Oh, just a few days", "Our friends will be here shortly" and "We have quite the appetite".

... “It's not about what it is, it's about what it can become.” ― Dr. Seuss

I guess that's what I had in mind when I began this journey many years ago. So many grand plans to create a Craftworld Warhost unique and rare.

Unfortunately, there is one thing currently missing - a name.

... Oh and a symbolic/appropriate Craftworld rune (yes, that makes two things).

With that in mind, i've been wracking my brain over what to call this stupidly large collection that also fits the theme.

So what do I have to go with so far? Well, the following;

1. The colour scheme - Very orange with barren/desert like bases, so naturally these guys are a bit on the"scorched earth" side of things in the way they approach the battlefield (before and after the fight). Perhaps there may be a bit about where the Craftworld resides as well - something, something, very bright galaxy cluster, hotter than hell in summer time.

2. FAST - The entire army is designed to be very highly mobile in all regards, with a compliment of rapid strike force Corsairs at its disposal. With a few whirling death Harlequins for good measure.

3. Variation in models - In short, I am weaving a story of WHY the Warhost has so many different styles of vehicles, Titans and the like. In a nutshell, they love their antiques, especially when they can bypass Void Shields (Warlock Class Battle Titan) and do so with style.

So basically, something that symbolises a Desert/Desolate faring, highly mobile, archaic force to be reckoned with. Tricky business, especially when i'm trying to reference every known Eldar dictionary I can get my mitts on. Not to mention the correct grammatical arrangement O_o

Of course, open to opinions as always ;) in fact i'd encourage them!
