Striking Scorpion by Kharneth Striking Scorpion by Kharneth
Ah, ages have passed since my last 40k related picture. Even more since last one involving Eldar. And, as deep in heart I am vile xeno fanboy - meet this Scorpion fellow.

Took me quite a lot of time and energy, but I'm quite proud of it - it's slowly approching the level I'd like to represent.

quick question, how do Eldar know what scorpions are?

Easily: They were rulling the galaxy when humans were crawling out of the *sea*; for all we know they were the gray aliens visiting Earth in the 20th century (helmet on), the Nordic aliens (helmet off), the Egyptian gods (Goa'uld) and who knows what more.

Honestly, I think it's a power of lazy writing...
It's explained that the Falcon is a human translation of similar Eldar bird, so we can guess they had helluva lot of animals conviniently similar to ours :D

yeah, although prolly EVERYTHING in the warhammer universe is a rough translation, i dont imagine being able to understand most humans in it, what with the fact that they speak gothic, not english, heh, now im picturing an imperial guard vidio where the lipsynch doesent match the words at all, like thoes shitty japanese translations.

Ah.. The Striking Scorpion Aspect warriors.. I have found them closest to Khaine than any other aspects.

This is sweet, but he looks a little thin for a scorpion, otherwise very nice.

Wow, just wow. I love it. Would it be okay if I used this as my facebook picture? Giving all credit to you of course. My friends know I love the Eldar and this picture is clean and crisp. It would look great.

Scorpions are the orkiest unit in the entire game. Orkier than any ork. They're mean, green, choppy, shooty, ride in fast [and ofter red] wagons and dakka comes out of their faces. How's that not orky? :D
Also, I'm your fan. ;)
