Got to say that is a fantastic looking cover, especially Korlandril the Scorpion. Though I wish Aradryan had his hood up, or that his hair was still there. Bald Eldar just look weird to me.
Its a scorpions claw, meaning these are likely depictions of the three from the later portions of their respective books. From the way its being thrust forward, you can see the shuriken weapon on the top of the claw facing towards his helmet.I am a bit confused as to what is with korlandril's left arm is about? Maybe I just can't focus correctly on the image, but is that a giant pincer?
Its been a bit since I read Path of the Warrior but I don't recall him using that when he got to that point.Do I just not remember this attachment / weapon of his?
Keep in mind that the striking scorpion chainswords would likely be a bit more 'brutish' in order to allow the Eldar wielding them to have a stronger hit. And if you compare their chainsword with a howling banshees sword, the former is broader than the latter.I also personally always pictured the Eldar swords to be a bit more slender and thin, a more elvish styling and not so broad and ugly.
Personally I'm not seeing it; in her book I don't ever recall any hint of an unwieldy looking staff and the pose is pretty dull.Thirianna is cool as shit looking,
Though I do agree with this, but I don't find that to be an issue of any kind as I imagine Eldar armour is not supposed to be terribly form fitting like some people try to make the likes of female marines and guard.zero hint of femininity,
Again I agree, all I see here is some Dark Eldar corsair in a coat and with a rifle.And I totally agree about Aradryan, just looks silly to me. The ranger look was way more badass and intimidating.
