I’ve long been interested in the Corsair army list from Forgeworld’s Imperial Armor 11. They seemed really cool and interesting to play, and a step back from my usual mech-heavy eldar playstyle (plus they don’t come with the same stigma of “Broken Eldar!” in our meta).

So I decided to playtest a few games, and wasn’t disappointed.

Then I started planning out my Corsair conversions.

Then I died a little inside.

I gathered up some bits from my old eldar and some friends, and I ended up with this as my Proof of Concept:

For those of you counting at home, you’ve now realized why I died a little inside. That conversion takes bits from no less than 3 kits, and doesn’t even have the forgeworld corsair conversion bits (yet).

  • Dark Eldar Wych legs
  • Eldar guardian Torsos
  • Dark Eldar Warrior arms.

And that is without even including¬†the Corsair Conversion bits for the backpack and lasblaster.¬†I’ll use Scourge legs and the corsair jetpack vanes for any jetpack-equipped corsairs.

That’s well over 150$ for one squad.

But I’ve been saving for a while, and the FLGS manager has been a hero and said he’d give a conversion project discount to help out, so the other day I came home with this

(yeah, there’s some admech stuff in there – that’s a post for another time)
