About Xenos and Proud

This is a small blog about my Warhammer 40,000 hobby. I will try to concentrate on the tactics behind the general game and my Xenos armies but there will be the odd post about random stuff.

About Me

Aberdeen, United Kingdom
Xenos and Proud is an 18 year old from Scotland who has been playing 40K for the last 4 years. He loves the 'under-dog' xenos armies, namely his Tyranid Gorgon splinter fleet, his Saim-Hann windrider host, his Tau Vleastean Hunter-cadre and the newest addition, the Shadowfax Corsairs. Although his tactics are mostly 'borrowed', his painting skills still 'developing' and his luck becoming evermore 'ridiculous' he continues to play, paint and roll in the hope that one day things will get better.

My Eldar Army Fluff

Here is the beginnings to my fluff for my eldar Saim-Hann army. Pics will come when I finish painting them or when I make some tutorials.

Fury of the Eclipsed Star

As part of one of the greatest Wild Rider clans of the Saim-Hann craftworld, the Fury of the Eclipsed Star is expected to be in a constant state of readiness and to be able to combat any foe, be it Imperial or alien. They are a very mobile yet hard hitting force lead by none other than Farseer Jasuliath, the second successor to the position of Chieftain within the clan and is one of the most skilled Farseers in the Craftworld.

 As such Jasuliath has access to many great weapons and units of the clan but instead chooses to be surrounded by his closest family and friends in battle, trusting them to support him and complete their objectives without question or delay. This results in a very close-knit strike force where even a single loss is unacceptable and mourned and sung about for years to come. Hence, even during the whirling tides of battle, Jasuliath will read the runes of fate and warn his comrades of any impeding danger or target of opportunity. Jasuliath is powerful enough to not only read the threads of fate in battle but he is also able to unleash his mighty psychic powers with pinpoint accuracy and skill, flipping battle tanks and destroying the minds of enemy leaders and sergeants. The warriors of the ‘Fury of the Eclipsed Star’ are further protected by their powerful jetbikes and sleek grav-tanks which both protect their crew and pilots from the onslaught of enemy fire. For his own firepower Jasuliath makes extensive use of Eldar plasma technology, fitting all of his vipers with star cannons and also utilising the destructive power of the Fire Prism cannon.

Due to their unbelievable psychic power and their deadly plasma weapons and extensive protective shielding the ‘Fury of the Eclipsed Star’ has become legend throughout the region of Imperial Space they regularly attack. They are distinctively feared among the small and unprotected agri-worlds due to their lightning fast raids which mean the worlds are unable to call upon help before Jasuliath’s army has completed its objective and disappeared back into the webway. This has forced the Imperium to make decisive counter-measures to help these lone worlds by sending a company of the Salamanders which can rapidly deploy to any planet in the region. Backed up by the local Imperial Guard this has proved an effective counter to the Eldar raids which have grown in complexity, size and importance over the recent years. This has lead to many battles between the Salamanders and ‘Fury of the Eclipsed Star’ but the bloodiest battles are still to come........
