Hi all! Blank here with a new predicament.

With the release of the new Eldar line of models and Codex update, I found an excuse to buy my allied detachment. As my HQ choice, I am taking the Avatar of Khaine. My issue is, while I am not too concerned with fluff, but I like to keep things copesetic. So, I am thinking about Dark Eldar-ing my Avatar and Jetbikes, but if that's "fluffily" unacceptable I won't do it. I did some of my own research and learned that while the Dark Eldar don't have the ability to rouse the god, the Incubi do still worship Khaine, or at least make offerings to him.

My plan is to use the Raider keel blades for the uprights on his head, spiking out his limbs, and fashioning "demi-klaives" out of some of the blades I have in my bits box.

What do you think? Any ideas?

Totally right place Very Happy

You are on to a great idea. I agree that the Raider keel blades, demi-klaives, and other spiky bits will make for a great Dark Khaine. Do it! Twisted Evil

I forget where it was, Ill try to find it, but somebody had one with an awesome paint scheme of purple/black instead of red/orange.. again,

I dont know how much it makes sense from fluff, but I imagine at the very least a powerful enough Kabal could have captured a regular one and then the haemonculi either corrupted it or switched the soul of the eldar that sacrifices himself to become the avatar with a DE?

the other avatar DE from the same guy :

IMO u cant capture an avatar as it is a demon from the warp
it cant stay for ever in real space.

but DE worshiper of khaine could summon one, one way or an other (sacrifice of an incubi or an captured exarch)
maybe with some help from mandrakes ? There are the most "demonic" of the codex
or maybe the avatar is some form of exalted mandrake

Yes, except that Mandrakes are said to be pets of Ynnead and not Khaine

(They might fight better if they were his...)

I'm sure there are Mandrakes who might enjoy the true death, especially if it resulted in a twenty foot high burning psychopath...

I know its off topic but from where did u see that mandrakes worship Ynnead ??
its a little strange because he is the god ov the dead soul of eldar in the infinity network (not sure of the translation :p) nothing to do with dark eldar or demonic eldar of doom that are mandrakes :p

loving this idea, maybe i will have to try this one out for my force Smile

fluff suggestion: would they be able to summon a small portion of Khaine like as for an avatar then bind it in into a host form as with a Daemonhost, maybe a specially prepared suit of Armour perhaps?

real potential for this in my opinion, a huge Incubi-style avatar of Khaine would be awesome-sauce by the way Smile
