Eldar versus Tau by warp-zero Eldar versus Tau by warp-zero
What can I say? I'm still on a Warhammer kick.

Doing battle against the Tau sure is challenging. The range and firepower of their weapons are truly awesome. But, all the more sweeter when I get my Howling Banshees close and start dicing them up. This drawing is a tribute to those moments. Lol :)

Also, my friend who plays Tau is a very talented artist who, for some reason, doesn't want to start a deviant page. I'm hoping this picture will motivate him to start an account and do some revenge pics of Tau shooting up Eldar. Heh heh.

Anyways, hope you like this piece.

In Dawn of War Howling Banshees are a pest to deal with. Unless they're under your command that is.

Unless you got Eliphas the Inheritor, who solos relic units by himself.

Or a Baneblade.

Eldar: Frackin' newbies and their frackin' optimism. At least the Mon'keigh are respectably pessimistic.

I like Storm Guardians too. I actually don't have trouble against Tau like I used to back in 3rd Edition. Back then my group and I were new to the game and we had to use whatever models we had painted up. As we learned the game and bought new models to the gaps in our lists, things became more even. Was still fun to draw this picture though. Should be interesting to see what GW does for both the Tau and the Eldar when they get new Codexes.

yea melee fighting becomes pointless when my nercon flayers and wraiths impale your eldar commanders with their backs turned rather that facing them head on.

Did this exact thing with an Inquisitor's Retinue a few months ago. The other guy outnumbered me something like five to one, and I sliced and diced like there was no tomorrow.
Great image, btw.
