Bright Stallions are a legit unit they had in the past. If you search for them you can find some conversions. It's basically a wraithlord centaur (four legs and upper body with arms). Though I think the only time they made models was in the very old Titan Legions (before even Epic 40K relaunch). So they are very far back in the history.

It's another one of those "ooh that's cool - GW why haven't you made this yet?!?" models.

A lot of people used them as inspiration for wraithlord conversions, but they are actually an Eldar knight model. It shows that the Eldar are totally onboard with non human designs though.

Here's the original Eldar knights

Yeah I've seen the centaur but I was thinking more like a wraith bone razor don. :p

Harlequin kits arrived today and picked the Frozen Stars as the Masque, as the colour scheme fits my old craft world nicely - black, white and purple. Also wanted the excuse to blend purple into yellow. Its a very easy colour scheme so its nice to be able to choose how much detail I would like for any of the models...

Definitely the starting detachment so for now I might consider an auxilary Warwalker to provide some much needed firepower. Would love to paint one of those in the same scheme!

Happy days!

One thing you can do (and I've got a few put aside for this) is to make your wraithlords into each aspect Warrior type.

I'm planning to do Striking Scorpion (chainsword/shurican cannon and shuricats as mandiblasters), Fire Dragon (brightlance and flamers plus large axe), Dark Reaper (twin AML as a single weapon), Dire Avenger (shuricannon and blade) and maybe a Banshee.

The heads from the webway gate look great on wraithlords too.

As to the comment on wraithswords vs wraithaxes, I'd take the latter almost every time. Durability is key, especially if hit with Protect and Fortune. I'm thinking of using custom craftworld for my Wraiths with Wrath of the Dead and perhaps Hunters of Hidden Relics (get that extra attack when parked on objectives).

Yeah, there are quite a few Aspect-themed Wraithlords out there. Very nice looking paint jobs and conversions.

Wraithguard are what I also wanted to get into last time I felt a pang to get back into Eldar.

But then I read their rules and their points cost.

And then they broke my plan to deep strike them in DE Raiders to drive the final nail in the coffin. Luckily I hadn't invested anything into them.

Eldar writers is a long line of oneupmanship at cutting one's nose to spite the face.
