Eldar Falcon Chassis based Grav Tanks
« on: March 08, 2010, 07:13:56 AM »
I just got my hands on a large epic eldar army at a local game store auction for $115.  For reference on how big it was.  1 phantom, 1 warlock, 3 revenants,  6 somewhat classic (I belive epic40k era) scorpions,  6 cobras from the same era,  19 metal falcons,  8 night spinners, 11 fire prisms,  and stuff I haven't counted.

There are a pair of falcon chassis based grav tanks I don't recognize and there aren't pictures of all the tanks on epicollector.  The turret piece looks like it's got a pair of "fan" like protrusions coming out the back of the cockpit part of the turret which look like they have gunports on them.  I'm assuming that these are probably epic40k era firestorms.  Can I get confirmation on this?

E:40K firestorms are the same than current ones sold on GW Specialist Games website.

Maybe the falcons you have are the command falcons:



The turret and small wings are on the top left compartment.

Hope this helps :)

There were no Firestorms in Epic 40K.

That does sound more like the Farseer/command falcon.

That's what they be.  Thanks.  This corroborates the supposition I had that this is an epic40k era army I bought that at current GW retail would have cost over $1000 for what I paid $115 for. 

There are a lot of the infantry stands that have single farseer/warlock models in them,  including aspect warrior stands.  I'm going to have to unbase most of the infantry.

Awesome for you.

The added benefit of getting E:40k era vehicles is that there were several variations of each chassis (4 falcons, 2 night spinners, and 2 fire prisms, I believe) and several variant gun turrets.

The current E:A blisters have just the one chassis and the one turret.
