Throwback Thursday: Eldar Flashback

Thursday is a salute to all things throwback. In this ongoing series, I will feature articles showcasing older hobby/game stuff for your enjoyment! This will focus on models in my collection, or old games, or even new projects with older models. Today, we take a quick look at some original Rogue Trader Eldar!

These are the original Eldar models from Rogue Trader Warhammer 40,000.

I picked these up as soon as they were released way back in the late 80s, and painted them up in the Eldar Pirates colours from the Rogue Trader Book, minus the tiger stripes. They later became Alaitoc colours, which became the basis for my long term Eldar army.

Since then I've painted and sold two armies of Eldar, but have kept the original unit, plus a bunch of the old Rogue Trader models, as well as the 2nd Edition metal models with plastic arms. The plan is to use them as a foundation for a Void Dragons Corsairs army, allied to my Alaitoc army, as the esoteric weapon style, and weapon combinations work well with the Corsairs list from the Imperial Armour Volume 11: Doom of Mymeara.
