Question about Eldar Dire Avenger Sprue
« on: November 3, 2017, 04:00:39 PM »
Hi 40kO,

I recently started working on an old box of Dire Avengers, and was taking a look at the exarch weapons on the sprue. Power weapon, dire sword, etc. I noticed an unusual item on the sprue near the weapons:



What is this item? I can't see how it would fit on the Exarch flag or anything, and it's obviously not a piece of wargear.

Oh, nice. Thanks for the info! I may use this to make objective markers then, it looks pretty cool.

The Dire Avenger, War Walker, and Wraithlord sprues all have extra little scenery bits on them. They're great for objective markers, or for fancying up the bases on larger models.

Yeah it's a great little edition, I still have a couple and going to make them into objectives at some point.

Wow, thanks for pointing this out! Never noticed this bit before :)
I fight against Chaos and for Order, because it means fighting for Life against Death. There is no other battle truly worth fighting.
