    Eldar were my first ever army in 40K and in fact in any game system. I always liked the mythos and aesthetic surrounding them, the last of a dying race, once noble warriors now reduced to manipulators in the shadows. They also suited my preferred play style which has always been to have a small, fast, elite army. The models in 1998 were top of the range and I couldn’t wait to paint them all. I still have my entire Eldar army back in England painted in my bright orange and white scheme. Upon returning to the hobby 3 years ago I opted for Infinity over Warhammer as I preferred the true scale models and the price of GW products had become a serious issue. However there remained a nagging desire to return to the Eldar. Like a mind itch that wont go away the idea remained in the background until I was scanning the Infinity website for new models and saw the Beyond Red Veil box set. This set in motion what you will see in this thread, my Eldar Kill Team.

    Now it must be said that I don’t play Kill Team or have any intention to in the future so this small Eldar task force will be purely a modelling and painting project. This allows me to ignore models which can actually be represented in Kill Team and follow my age old golden rule of cool. I will return to my orange and white scheme but this time tweaked towards a bronze and turquoise combination. As this project was designed to make my ideal Eldar raiding party, OSL was needed to make them look suitably advanced and the GW models tragically have barely been updated since my youth. Therefore the entire warband will be a kitbash of Infinity, 40K and Kingdom Death models. I don’t have any hard and fast rules of what I do and don’t want to include yet but each model should look unique and dynamic.

    First up are the two guardians based on the Neo Terra Bolts:

    Then the model that started the whole idea, the converted Warp Spider based on the Fiday.

    I have more images on my website as well as all my other Infinity projects.

    I have some more models in the works based around the rest of the Beyond Red Veil box.

    Any suggestions for other Infinity models which might work as Eldar proxies much appreciated.

    Very nice!
    You can always use them on Infinity and/or other alternative mini-agnostic rulesets like One Page Rules, Star Breach or many others if you wish
