If you don't know Eldar Exodites, then feel free to read an intro here: https://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Exodite .
It's Dino-riders* meets Warhammer 40K canon!
It is unfortunate and uncomprehisible that GW's new tactic to publish new miniatures based on old lore did not apply to the reptile-riders yet! (Like they did/do with Genestealer Cultists and Sisters of Battle.)
So it's up to myself to produce an Epic 40,000 Exodite army for me. A selection of toy dinosaurs, my "bitsbox" and some Blu Tack** is the start of this cool project.
Over the year I scavenged some Eldar, Necron and other bits. Time to glue them together.
Guns from MechWarrior, a platform from Necrons, metal bit from GW. This is the look I wish to achieve for my Exodite air force leader.
To maintain an Eldar-look I need to use some genuine Epic Eldar weapons. But I'll use them in a different way than usual. The support platforms will become portable guns.
Have a look at my work on the Exodite army list: http://www.tocoking.be/homerules/files/Epic40000_ArmiesBook_... . The dinosaurs are called Megasaurs. They can be selected in your army as living tanks. But with the typical upgrades you can expect from Epic 40,000 (3rd edition that is). Heavy weapons, disrupt, anti-tank, ... So I'll stick some various weapon bits to various dinosaur toys and they all can be integrated into the Eldar Exodites detachments.
Offcourse these pictures are works in progress and more bits will be used to finish them. But it's a good "sketch" to show where I'm going.
Dino-riders toys from the eighties:(These are not GW.)
In this blog I'll talk about various miniature games. Custom miniatures and minor conversions are my favorite pastime. I'll cover scenery making and painting too. The WIP you'll see here is all about Necromunda, Epic 40,000, Warhammer Fantasy 5th Edition, Warmaster and Warhammer 40K 3rd Edition.
