Not sure how I'm going to model the Exarch's two shuriken catapults yet... any suggestions?

Is it me, or is that walker naked? Looking forward to seeing this come together. Are you sticking with an orange scheme?
My eldar are defending this very important Aegis landing platform... because it's pretty, They don't actually want the thing, and it's certainly not why there on this planet... but it's oh so shiny and technologically advanced...

I think that's just what the old school war walkers looked like.

Personally, I think it's great to see someone making an army out of older models. Some of those old models were really charming - I'm personally really pleased with my old school land raider. I bring it whenever my Exorcists come out to play.

Normally I don't care for eldar in the least, but old RT era anything will get my attention every time. Good job sir.

@redfox: The walkers are still getting dressed, lol. I'm going with a Samhain theme for this army, so it will eventually be a dark red.

@ElectricPaladin: I couldn't agree more, but I need to be careful with some of this old mini's as they are back from when GW still used lead.

@Deadestdai: No love for the Eldar? Glad my RT pointy-ears have convinced you otherwise (at least a little bit). Heck, I'll even update my January commitment to get more RT-era stuff in...

Update:
Replacing the Dire Avengers Exarch with the following model

That's more like it! :lol:

Awesome model. If only there were more mohawks like that in 40K.

I'd hate to see the hair gel budget for the army! ;)

Love the old school Farseer model..takes me back!

I just posted a pic of an old harlequin I painted 15 years ago I might just include in my Dark Eldar army for nostalgia.

Go old school go!
